The Burning Embers sweater is one of the 20 size-inclusive sweater patterns from my book, Modern Crochet Sweaters, available at all major retailers or at this link here.
A playful twist on a holiday sweater, Burning Embers features a statement bow closure over a modern, peek-a-boo cutout on the lower back. The festive, oversized bow is not only a striking detail, but serves an important function: a way to incorporate simple waist shaping to hug your natural waistline. This cropped sweater is designed to be close fitting, especially at the waist, so that the bow will stay taut against your back.
