With the autumn months approaching, it’s time to put away those summer dresses and tank tops and get out your fall wardrobe. Before you know it, sweater season will be upon us, so it’s the perfect time to get your hands on Robyn Chachula’s latest book, Blueprint Crochet Sweaters. AllFreeCrochet is giving away one copy; enter here for your chance to win.
Crocheting your own sweaters may seem intimidating if you’ve never ventured outside of scarves, dishcloths, afghans, and other easy crochet patterns. But with the help of this book, you’ll be amazed at how surprisingly simple it is to crochet your very own sweater.
Blueprint Crochet Sweaters by Robyn Chachula is a great introduction to crocheting sweaters. In this collection of sixteen patterns, you’ll not only learn the basics of sweater construction, but you will also learn how to create better fitting garments in general. If you’ve always been too intimidated to try your hand at crocheting clothes, then let this book be your friendly introduction. Patterns are broken down into easy-to-understand parts that makes it easier than ever to create a beautiful garment.
Although all of the patterns inside Blueprint Crochet Sweaters are fashionable and pretty, there are a few in particular that I fell in love with instantly. The Burnt Plaid Dress (pg. 41) features beautiful colorwork and is the perfect casual dress to wear in the autumn. For a classic sweater pattern to wear everyday, check out the Rose Quartz Pullover (pg. 67).
