The Rock & Rose jumper is a cropped crochet sweater pattern using simple stitches that give a beautiful ribbed texture. The cropped style is boxy, with v-neck shaping that’s super flattering on all body shapes. It can be made true to size for a form fitting modern crop, or oversized for a slouchy loungewear look.
About Rock & Rose – a cropped crochet sweater pattern
This is a size-inclusive pattern, written for 9 sizes from XS to 5X complete with measurements and size guide based on craft yarn council size standards. The pattern is designed with no ease, meaning it will match your measurements. The vertical ribbing means it has a lot of give and stretch, so if you’re using to having to size up to accomodate a larger bust (like me) then you shouldn’t have to with this pattern. Prefer a looser fit? Choose a size up.
There are customisation points to;
- Lengthen the torso for a full length sweater
- Lengthen or shorten the sleeves
- Make the waist more fitted
- Make the sleeves tighter or looser
