Summer Sweetness Cropped Sweater
The Summer Sweetness Cropped Sweater is light and airy to wear, making it ideal for warmer weather months. This is a great design to pick if you want to explore knitting with many colorful yarns together and was originally part of our spring 2018 Knitalong. The pattern is finally live and available to all! The pattern calls for 1 skein of our Spun Cloud yarn and 4 skeins of our Wildflower yarn.
This sweater is worked from the bottom up in two pieces. The front and back are worked identical to one another in construction, but color patterns are adjusted. You can choose to wear the garment with either side facing front. Our sample is shown with the reverse stockinette side out. The style is available in 5 sizes, XS through XL, fit details below. Size S shown here in color French Vanilla (Spun Cloud Yarn) and Petal, Tribal, Dusty Fleur and Beatnik.

Yarn usage note: We knit our sample with 4 different Wildflower colors but only a half skein of each color is used for sizes XS and S. If you are knitting these sizes and prefer to use 2 colors of Wildflower, instead of 4, simply use one of the colors for each of the 2 contrasting colors. This will mean 2 skeins are needed in total, not 4., but the effect will not be as multi-colored.
