The Sterling Road Sweater – Turtleneck Crochet Pattern

 
The Sterling Road Sweater Pattern is here!!
I am so in love with this turtleneck pullover, I’ve been wearing it non-stop since it came off of my hook!
 
 
Available in sizes Sm-5x
 
I designed this pattern with this absolutely gorgeous KT and the Squid Yarn called Dunja, it’s a subtle grey base that has these vibrant flecks of colour throughout!
I love speckles so much, you guys.
The sleeves are cuffed with the July Mystery Yarn that KT and the Squid dyed this summer, and it matched perfectly!
 
 
This is one of those designs that people come up and ask you if you made it, and if it’s knitted, so you can answer YES, and NO. It’s crocheted, friends!
 
So here’s the thing. This will take you a bit to crochet. It’s not a quick project. But will it be worth it? Heck yes!!
 
I can’t wait to see yours, if you are looking for some alternative yarns, here are a few suggestions:
>> Loops and Threads Woolike
>> KING COLE Comfort 3-ply
>> Bernat Baby
 
 
 
I can’t wait to see your Sterling Road Sweaters! Be sure to tag me on Instagram to show me your progress <3
