Fall is my favorite season, and nothing beats a walk in the crisp Autumn air with a cozy sweater. Made with Tunisian crochet and soft Whims Merino yarn, the Autumn Chill Sweater is warm and comfy. This pattern is designed for men or women, and easy to adjust for size. Make it solid colored or customize it with any variation of stripes you can imagine!

ABOUT OUR DESIGNER

As a crochet designer, I love to experiment with new stitches and techniques. I’ve dabbled with hairpin lace, Tunisian crochet, and interlocking crochet, to name a few. Many of my designs are geared toward the intermediate crocheter, but I also try to make beginner-friendly designs and provide video support to make more challenging patterns accessible. There’s a special joy in making things that look difficult but are actually surprisingly easy and give a great ‘wow’ factor.
I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I love the peace that comes from all things green and outdoorsy. For someone motivated by peace, like me, crochet is a great hobby. You can chill out, crochet for a few hours, and escape the busy rush of the day to day. That’s an escape that I definitely need as a working mom with 4 young kids!  
Reading, playing piano, rowing, and biking are a few of my favorite things, and I’m also a science and math aficionado. I have a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Smith College and finished two years of graduate school at UNC-Chapel Hill before leaving the world of academia to raise my family.

 Notes

  • This sweater features a simple drop shoulder design and uses one of my favorite stitches - the Tunisian Full Stitch. You can see a video tutorial of this stitch here: https://youtu.be/-2YMk8NXpNs
  • The sweater is worked in panels, then seamed. This video shows how to seam the pieces together: https://youtu.be/8kuw6MIxac4
  • Finally, ribbing is added around the cuffs, bottom edge, and collar. For a video tutorial showing how to add ribbing, see this link: https://youtu.be/ZNNnMEABtXY
  • The chart above shows how the measurements in this pattern compare to typical garment sizes for men and women, plus the approximate amount of yarn needed for each size. If you are between sizes, I recommend going up a size since Tunisian crochet does not have a lot of horizontal stretch and drop shoulder designs tend to fit better with a little extra ease.
  • As written, the sweater has 2-5” of positive ease (the amount of ease increases with size to stay proportional). Measurements in the chart show the bust/chest circumference, not the finished sweater circumference.
  • The pattern is based on chest/bust circumference and is suitable for any gender. I have also provided two arm length options for each size - longer (based on average men’s measurements), and shorter (based on average women’s measurements). The shorter arms also have slightly smaller wrists. Feel free to choose whichever version you’d like.
  • The cuffs for this sweater are intentionally loose - if you prefer a tighter cuff, you can decrease the arms more drastically toward the cuff, decrease stitches when you work the ribbing to make the cuff tighter, or go down a hook size when working the cuff ribbing.
  • The length of the pattern is based on average men’s measurements, so for women the length may be closer to tunic-length. Adjusting for length is very easy, though! Simply add or remove rows to the front and back body panel before you begin shaping for the neck. Make sure you adjust by the same number of rows for the front and back panels.
  • Alternatively, when working the front panel, you can work regular tfs rows until your front panel is 4-5” shorter than your desired finished length. Note how many rows of tfs you did, then do the front panel collar shaping normally. The back panel will have four more rows of regular tfs before the collar shaping, since the collar is shallower in the back than in the front.
  • Return passes are always worked as normal Tunisian return passes. To do this, ch1, then *yo and pull through two loops, repeat from * across. This is also shown in the tunisian full stitch video linked above.
  • To make it easier to read, I’ve written instructions for each size separately. For assembly and ribbing, instructions are found at the end and are the same for all sizes. Clicking the size in the chart will take you to that pattern size. Enjoy!

                                                                          Assembly and Ribbing
                                                                          You can see a  video tutorial showing the sweater assembly steps here: https://youtu.be/8kuw6MIxac4

                                                                          You can use whatever seaming method you prefer. I chose to use a slip stitch along the inside of the seam. A whip stitch seam also looks great with tunisian full stitch.
                                                                          •  First, seam the top of the shoulders. The front and back panel should have the same number of stitches remaining at the top of the shoulders. You can lay the sweater flat with the insides down, or you can lay the back panel down with the inside facing down and then lay the top panel on top of it with the inside facing up (outsides together). Just make sure you sew it so the insides will be on the inside of your sweater when you’re done (see video)!
                                                                          • Next, attach the arm to the shoulder. Lay the sweater body flat. Find the center of the wider edge of the arm, and align it with the top shoulder seam of the sweater body. Sew along the arm/body connection seam. Repeat for the other side.
                                                                          • Now it’s time to close the sides and arms of the sweater. Starting at one cuff, seam the length of the arm closed. When you reach the sweater body, continue the seam all the way to the bottom of that side of the sweater. Repeat for the other side.

                                                                           Your seams are done!

                                                                          Ribbing
                                                                          You can see a video tutorial showing how to add ribbing here: https://youtu.be/ZNNnMEABtXY

                                                                          Ribbing will be added to each cuff, the neckline, and the bottom edge of the sweater. In my sample, I made all of my ribbing the same width (approximately 2”), but you can certainly make yours longer if you’d like to - just increase the starting chain for your ribbing! I also switched to a regular crochet hook for the ribbing, as a tunisian hook is unnecessary and a little more unwieldy for this section. For a more snug fit, go down a hook size for cuff and neck ribbing.

                                                                          Note: ch1 does not count as a stitch

                                                                          1. Join your yarn to the cuff, preferably at a seam section to make the ribbing seam less visible. 
                                                                          2. ch9
                                                                          3. turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and back along chain toward sweater (8sc)
                                                                          4. ss in each of the next two stitches of the sweater
                                                                          5. ch1, turn
                                                                          6. sc blo along ribbing (8sc) [Optional variation - for the last stitch, work through both loops instead of back loop only]
                                                                          7. ch1, turn, sc blo along ribbing (8sc)
                                                                          8. repeat steps 4-7 until you have worked around the cuff completely, then join to the first row of ribbing. 
                                                                          9. Repeat for the other cuff, collar, and bottom edging.

                                                                          Fasten off, weave your ends and you're done!

Hope to make it sometime this winter or next. Got too many project now, but plan on doing this as soon as I can. Thanks for making it free since I am retired and on a tight budget. :-)
