Yay! Can you finally believe this day has come? After working on this pattern since December, I can finally release the Amelia Pullover crochet pattern and I must say, I am so happy. I have been living in this sweater lately so can’t to finally send it out into the world.
So… Like I said, I started this design in December (if you follow me on IG you will have already seen that) because I wanted to experiment with colors. I had idea for simple texture, oversized squish, and big striping and when I went looking through my stash I found colors I wouldn’t normally use together but I still went for it. Honestly, I thought this sweater was going to be, or lets say I was hoping, the cute kind of ugly but it kinda just turned out cute, right?
Did I mention the texture? In this pattern it makes me so happy! And all it is, is single crochet. With a fun alternating of BLO/FLO you can get so much texture in this sweater and create unique front and back sides of your work. But… that did pose a problem for the sleeves so make sure when you’re working the pattern you are keeping track of your BLO/FLO spots (maybe use a stitch marker) so you keep the same texture. I wrote that section so you can decrease as you’d like but that also means you have to keep an eye on your texture and not get mixed up. I believe in you, though, you can totally do it!
Oh, and before I let ya go, make sure you read the measurements fully. This is supposed to be an oversized sweater is supposed to be approx 2″ – 3″ in positive easy across (meaning 4″ to 6″ around) in the bust area so if that isn’t what you’re looking for, maybe look at a smaller size or even a smaller yarn/hook combo. Or play around and see what works for you in sizing! Remember, your finished object is for you, so you can customize as you like to make yourself happy <3 <3
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Amelia Pullover crochet pattern and make some lovely stripes and texture!

I hope where ever you are you’re having a great time and being safe and healthy. Hugs friends. Wash your hands and masks.

Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by We Crochet for the purposes of designing the Amelia Pullover crochet pattern, with compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.

Seaming
Neck Hole – Use the long tails you left after rows 96 (96, 102, 102, 102)(108, 108, 108, 108), seam together the front and back pieces along the 13 (15, 19, 21, 25)(29, 33, 35, 39) sts in your preferred method of seaming.
Sides – From the bottom up, skip the color A section and seam together the next 48 (48, 49, 49, 45)(50, 42, 42, 42) rows in your preferred method of seaming. Repeat on the other side. The unworked sts are your arm holes.

Sleeves
With US I (5.50 mm) crochet hook
Sizing as follows: XS (SM, MD, LG, 1X)(2X, 3X, 4X, 5X)
Note: 

  • Begin the sleeves with the RS and Front piece facing you. You will change colors every 11 rows to make it striped.
  • For the decrease rnds: you will use the 2nd and 3rd sts as well as the last 2 sts to create 2 decreases (sc2tog) on the rnd and the rest of the rnd will be worked in alternating sc and FLO/BLO. Due to the decrease, the repeat of FLO/BLO and sc will be thrown off, adjust as needed to make sure the texture matches through the sleeves. Using a stitch marker is suggested to keep BLO/FLO rows lined up.

Rnd 1: F: Create a slipknot on your hook (this will make your first st a standing sc), sc into the first row end to the left of your seam on the side of the Body, sc into the next 31 (31, 35, 35, 39)(39, 47, 47, 47) row ends, move onto the Back piece, sc into the next 32 (32, 36, 36, 40)(40, 48, 48, 48) row ends, join – 64 (64, 72, 72, 80)(80, 96, 96, 96) sc
Rnd 2: Ch 1, turn, sc into the FLO of the first st, sc into the next st, *sc into the FLO of the next st, sc into the next st,* repeat from * to * 30 (30, 34, 34, 38)(38, 46, 46, 46) more times, join – 64 (64, 72, 72, 80)(80, 96, 96, 96) sc
Rnd 3: Ch 1, turn, sc into the first st, sc into the BLO of the next st, *sc into the next st, sc BLO of the next st,* repeat from * to * 30 (30, 34, 34, 38)(38, 46, 46, 46) more times, join – 64 (64, 72, 72, 80)(80, 96, 96, 96) sc
Rnds 4 – 9: repeat rnds 2 – 3, 3 times.
Rnd 10: repeat rnd 2.
Rnd 11: Decrease (sc2tog) using the 2nd and 3rd sts of the rnd and again using last 2 sts of the rnd, work the rest of the rnd alternating sc and BLO/FLO as the pattern requires.
Note: adjust as needed so your BLO/FLO line up in your sleeves, use stitch markers if that will assist.
Rnds 12 – 15: repeat rnds 2 – 3, twice (with new st counts).
Rnd 16: repeat rnd 11.17 – 66: repeat rnds 12 – 16 until you reach st count of 56 (56, 64, 64, 70)(70, 84, 84, 84), then continue repeating rnds 2 -3 (make sure your BLO/FLO and sc line up still) until you reach rnd 66 or 17”.
Cuff
With US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook (optional for a tighter fit)
Row 1: Rotate your piece so you’re working perpendicularly to rnd 66 of the Sleeve. Ch 6, sc into the second ch from the hook and into the next 4 sts – 5 sc
Row 2: Slip st into the next 2 sts on the last rnd of the Sleeve, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 5 sc – 5 sc
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 5 sc – 5 sc
Row 4: Slip st into the next 2 sts on the last rnd of the Sleeve, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 5 sc – 5 sc
Rows 5 – 56 (56, 64, 64, 70)(70, 84, 84, 84): repeat rows 3 – 4, 26 (26, 30, 30,33)(33, 40, 40, 40) more times.
Fasten off leaving a long tail and use the tail to seam up your final row with row 1. Weave in your ends. Block your Sleeve and Cuff so it measures 18” long. Remember, if you blocked your sweater you need to block your sleeves as well.
Repeat Sleeve instructions on the other Arm hole.

Collar
With US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook (optional for a tighter fit)
Note: the Collar is worked along the row ends of the neck shaping and the skipped sts of rows 90 (90, 96, 96, 96)(102, 102, 102, 102).
Row 1: Rotate your piece so you’re working perpendicularly along the Neck hole. With the RS facing you, pull up a loop in the last st of any row 96 (96, 102, 102, 102)(108, 108, 108, 108), ch 9,  sc into the second ch from the hook and into the next 7 sts – 8 sc
Row 2: Slip st into the next 2 sts on neck shaping, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 8 sc – 8 sc
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 8 sc – 8 sc
Row 4: Slip st into the next 2 sts on the last rnd of the neck shaping, turn, sc into the BLO of the next 8 sc – 8 sc
Rows 5 – 86 (90, 90, 94, 94)(90, 90, 94, 94): repeat rows 3 – 4, 41 (43, 43, 45, 45)(43, 43, 45, 45) more times.
Fasten off leaving a long tail and use the tail to seam up your final row with row 1. Weave in your ends.
