The Sacred Woods side-split pullover 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.
Meet Sacred Woods, a moody pullover sweater featuring vertical stitching, a relaxed fit and elegant side slits. Vertical rows are used to mimic tall, slender trees found in a forest, encouraging the sweater to lay gracefully on your body. There is no visible seam separating the sleeves from the body, creating a smooth, visually pleasing continuity in the fabric; maintaining the same sideways back-and-forth rows to create the look of one seamless piece of fabric from one wrist to the other wrist.
This sweater is worked in simple stitches with minimal shaping, meaning you’ll only need to refer to the pattern a couple times—perfect for distracted crocheting.
Long enough to wear with leggings, Sacred Woods is the ultimate grab-and-go piece. The dramatic side slits add dimension and movement while allowing more space in the hips for a great fit on both slim and curvy body types.
