Tiger Sweater Crochet Pattern
This Tiger Sweater is an essential stand-out piece for your crochet wardrobe. Made using Swish DK, an extra soft Merino wool that offers plenty of warmth so you’re not going to want to take this cosy sweater off!
The sweater had a 4-panel construction using HDC throughout. The panels are seamed together and ribbing is added for the neckband. There are instructions for two types of neckband included in the pattern, folded (thicker neckband) and non-folded (thinner neckband). The tiger design on the front panel is made using intarsia colourwork making a new bobbin at each colour change.
This pattern is perfect for the intermediate crocheter who is comfortable doing colour changes.
WHAT DO OTHER MAKERS SAY ABOUT THIS PATTERN?
‘I’d really recommend this pattern, especially if you want more colour work experience. Lauren’s video tutorial linked in the pattern is also super helpful if you’re new to it. And the rest of the panels work up super quick too. Aside from the tiger I especially love the neckband detail, it makes it extra cozy.’
‘The colorwork is absolutely stunning. The pattern was so easy to follow and understand.’
