The Rhiannon Slouch Sweater

Hello everyone! I am Jessica Carey, the designer and creative behind The Hook Nook! I am so excited to host my second CAL with my friends at Furls Crochet! I have designed this gorgeous slouch-style jumper complete with a darling heart pocket! This piece fits oversized and is the perfect fall piece! 

Using Lion Brand Heartland yarns, this sweater is cozy, soft and even machine washable. With the gorgeous and subtle coloring in the yarn paired with a textured and interesting stitch, Rhiannon Slouch is sure to be a classic! We will be working this pattern a little bit each week and will all be able to end October with a new garment to add to our wardrobe! How exciting is that?! 

Our Rhiannon Slouch Sweater CAL schedule:

Week 1: Materials and Front and back panels
Week 2: Finishing up body panels, panel assembly, neckline, clean edges
Week 3: Both sleeves, sleeve assembly
Week 4: Heart pocket, pocket assembly, bottom hem edging

To follow along with the CAL and to share progress, ask questions and just simply join in on the fun, be sure to join the Furls Crochet Facebook group, Fun With Furls! Can’t wait to get started! This is going to be so much fun!

xo,
Jessica

CLEAN BORDERS

Note: We will create SC borders along neckline, both sleeve sections and bottom hem. This will create a clean “slate” for the color change and will allow for an even transition.

 

PART ONE

The Rhiannon Slouch was inspired by all that autumn encompasses for me. During those chilly months, I long to be wrapped up in fiber, draped in love and the cozy texture of these stitches really offer a special personal interest. From the minor detailing along the hem, to the darling heart-shaped pocket with contrast stitching… This project is all kinds of dreamy.

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
