Posts Tagged ‘Studio Sock Yarn’

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here to tell you about the crocheted sweater I recently finished.

High Wire Sweater

The High Wire sweater is a pattern from the inaugural issue of Moorit Magazine which is “…an indie craft magazine that puts crochet front and center.” This pattern was designed by Stephanie Erin and is a classic circular yoke sweater that is worked from the top down.

The pattern sample was worked in the same yarn I chose for the main color, Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock in color “Remington” but I chose a different color from the sample for the color work and went with “Swoon”.

Completed Yoke

I love how the turquoise color makes the yoke look like you are wearing a necklace.

The pattern is worked from the top down so the sweater can be tried on as you go to make sure the fit is good. It has shaping for the bust, waist, and hips and fits me perfectly in the size I chose. 

This sweater took me about two months to complete. I thought the pattern was written well and easy to follow. The print version of the magazine is no longer available, but you can still get a digital version.

I’m very happy with how the sweater turned out and would recommend this pattern to anyone. In the future I might make a short sleeve version in a summer weight yarn. The pattern is only available by purchasing the digital version of Moorit magazine.

I’m joining the The Loop Scoop Yarny Link Party (formerly known as Hookin’ on Hump Day). You should stop by to see some of the other projects people have posted.
