A love letter to blooming flowers, an ode to Spring’s florals, a refreshing reminder of the brighter days ahead. The Fleur sweater is ready to peek through the surface and emerge from your hooks.
The lace works up quick and the piece is constructed from 4 rectangles with minimal shaping. This easy crochet lace sweater pattern is exactly what you need to ring in the Spring season.
Flower Crochet Lace
I love to crochet lace. First of all, it makes your project works up so much quicker! It also allows you to create lighter garments and accessories for the warmer seasons.
Adding lace to a worsted weight wool sweater makes it a great transition piece. Keeping you warm on colder days but breezy so you don’t suffocate.
I usually stay away from visual representations in my designs (wether in colorwork, lace and texture) but for this sweater I wanted a clear flower power inspiration.
This flower lace pattern is a simple combination of the basic stitches (ch, sc, dc, tr) and skipped stitches. Yes you need to count a little to keep track of what you’re doing but after a few repeats it’s a breeze. The simple boxed construction of this lightly cropped crochet sweater makes it easy for you to focus on your stitches as there is barely any shaping required.
For the visual crocheters here is the crochet chart for the flower lace stitch. Don’t worry, the pattern has it all written out for you too ;).
If you need help learning to read crochet charts, my online course Conquer Charts & Graphs is a great place to start!
The Fleur crochet sweater pattern is designed with the lovely squishy Hobbii Tweed Delight yarn. It’s a single ply worsted weight wool blend tweed yarn.
When I think of tweed, I usually think of fall but I love how this tweed has super colorful specks making it an unexpected great choice for spring & summer makes.
Soft and squishy, it flies of your hook. I can’t wait to make something with the few skeins I have left over.
