Hello everyone! I am Jessica Carey, the designer and creative behind! I am so excited to host my second CAL with my friends at ! 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,! Can’t wait to get started! This is going to be so much fun!

- At the beginning of each row, CH 1 does not count as a stitch.
- There is a 6-8” positive ease for each size. This top is meant to fit oversized and baggy. If you would like a more fitted size, feel free to create a size smaller than you generally wear.
- When following the pattern, the different sizes will be noted as - S (M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL)
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.
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.
