Free Crochet Pattern - Cannelle Sweater

Free Crochet Pattern - Cannelle Sweater

 

Hi, I am so excited to present the Cannelle Sweater! It is a lovely, oversized sweater with pockets that is great for the upcoming fall.  I knew at once that I wanted to design something cozy and nice for you. I LOVE pockets so that was an essential and these invisible pockets make for interesting details. Made in the suzette stitch, the sweater has a nice texture. My inspiration was to make something that’s perfect to wear at home or out and about, so you get as much use out of it as possible. Pair it with jeans and boots and you’ve got a lovely outfit for a day around town. 

The name Cannelle means cinnamon in French and matches, of course, the colour of the sweater but refers to my inspiration for it. When I think of autumn, my first thoughts are usually the beautiful scenery of trees with leaves in different shades of orange and the Eiffel Tower in the background. I haven’t been to Paris in autumn, but somehow that’s a picture I can’t get off my mind.  For me autumn also means a lot of apple and apple pies, and with that cinnamon!

Without further ado, let’s make a cozy sweater that gives all the autumn feelings!

ABOUT OUR DESIGNER

Emilia is a 30-something year old Scandinavian crochet designer. Some of you might know her better as Coffee & Crocheting (or coffeeandcrocheting) which is the name for the design brand, but also the perfect way to describe Emilia. You often find her with coffee in one hand and hook and yarn in the other. Studying in the final years to become a medical doctor, crochet and designing is the perfect counterbalance. Making and creating as a way to enjoy life and to relax is the drive and feel behind Emilia’s work. She believes that the process of making is as important, if not more important, as the finished result.

Notes

This pattern is written in nine sizes: XS (S, M, L, 1X) (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X) 
- Model pictured is wearing a size small

The sweater is worked in four pieces: front, back and 2 sleeves. These are sewn together to make up the sweater. 

Each piece is worked flat in rows and from bottom up. 

The sweater is made using the suzette stitch as the main stitch. The suzette stitch is also known as the grit stitch.

The ch 1 in the beginning of the row of the suzette stitch counts as a stitch. The ch 2 as part of the ribbing does not count as a stitch. 

Pro Tip! Leave a long tail before you chain so you can use it to sew the sides of the sweater and sleeves.  

The measurements in the schematics are the measurements of the final garment size. Your own measurements should be 4” smaller in bust. Since the sweater goes over the hips you might want to compare to your hip width instead, you will leave the sides open around the ribbing, which gives more room for the hips.

 

Front
Ribbing
With the 6 mm (J-10), or the one you met ribbing gauge with: Ch 53 (59, 65, 71, 77) (83, 89, 95, 101)

Row 4- 14 (14, 16, 16, 18) (20, 20, 22, 22): Repeat row 2-3. (do not ch 2 after final repeat row). Do not fasten off after final repeat row, put a stitch marker in the stitch and leave for now. Continue with the pockets.

Pockets
Place a stitch marker in the 9 (11, 13, 13, 15) (17, 19, 21, 23)rd and 22 (26, 30, 30, 32) (36, 38, 40, 44)th stitch from the edge on row 14 (14, 16, 16, 18) (20, 20, 22, 22). Repeat on the other side. Place stitch markers in the same stitches on row 2. You should now have placed 8 stitch markers. The stitch markers will be referred to as 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th counting from right to left, they exist on two levels row 2 and row 14 (14, 16, 16, 18) (20, 20, 22, 22).

Repeat rows of dc until your pocket height reaches the top of row 14 (14, 16, 16, 18) (20, 20, 22, 22) of your body piece, rather make one extra row than one to few. (I made 8 rows in total). Fasten off, and if you made an uneven row amount leave a 12” tail to sew the side of the pocket.

Repeat on the other side, attaching your yarn in the 3rd stitch marker and ending the row in the 4th.

Blocking
Before sewing it together, block according to measurements. Try your blocking technique on your gauge swatch first, that way you know it works for your yarn. The sample was steam blocked. 

 

Sewing

Measure 6.3 (6.7, 7.1, 8.1, 8.9) (9.3, 9.6, 10, 10.2)" from shoulders down the side of the sweater (or if you adjusted the width of your sleeve: half of the sleeve width). Mark with a stitch marker. Sew the sides, using the mattress stitch, beginning from over the ribbing, leaving the sides open, up to the stitch marker. Repeat on the other side.

@Jennifer, If you check out the yarn weight and length per skein you can calculate out how much you’ll need of any other type of yarn you want. :)

Monica

What other yarn could you use? I’m in Canada and with exchange and shipping it can get a little expensive. Although I do order from USA and other companies in other countries. Just would like some options.😄

Thank you

Jennifer
