Scandinavian Sweater for a Child

Regular price $5.50 $0.00
The classic look in this child’s-size pullover is perfectly vintage. The sweater features a tapestry crochet colorwork pattern at the hem and sleeves in back-loop-only single crochet. The pattern is derived from a traditional Scandinavian design, simplified for use on a child’s garment. Traditionally worked in red and white, a brown-and-white combination is a modern take on this traditional technique. Tapestry crochet can look messy, especially when using such contrasting colors. Here, however, there’s a little trick to getting the colorwork to be a bit sharper. While it takes a little more time, the beautiful effect is worth it.
