The Emerald Valley 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.
Whether you’re dressing for date night or business casual, this top can be worn on its own without being see-through and styled to suit almost any occasion. This simple, beginner-friendly design encourages customization—experiment with fiber choice, color or length to put your own spin on this sweater. The seasons may come and go, but the magic in these graceful sleeves is here to stay.
Comprised of half double crochet stitches throughout, Emerald Valley encourages you to get creative with your yarn choices. Simple stitches like this are great opportunities to use any special, unique yarns you may have on hand that you want to show off without getting lost in a distracting stitch pattern. Speckled, variegated, self-striping, and hand-dyed yarns pair best with a blank canvas of simple stitches to really let the yarn shine.
Lion Brand Superwash Merino is a lightweight, category #3 yarn, but if substituting, I would recommend using a sport weight (category #2) or even a fingering weight (category #1) yarn that matches gauge for a close match to this lightweight DK.
