Stitch & Hustle Blog Hop

Hello crocheters! Welcome welcome to my FREE CROCHET PATTERN pattern in this PERFECT PICOT BLOG HOP from Stitch & Hustle + We Crochet.

I am thrilled (so very thrilled) to finally introduce you to my pattern for this Blog Hop. My pattern is brought to you by FALL and the happiness of being able to LAYER again.

Chroma Twist Worsted is an amazing yarn to work with, and this pullover uses it beautifully in a simple pattern perfect for layering and decorated with a pretty picot trim. All through the layering seasons (ie the most wonderful time of the year).

Instructions are given for sizes XS to 5X, with tips on how to lengthen the pullover or adjust the neckline. 

You’ll want to read ALL THE WAY to the end for a handy list of ALL OF THE AMAZING DESIGNERS that are participating in this blog hop. That’s right, there are MANY more free patterns all ready and waiting for your hooking time.

AND there are contests too. You could win the yarn to make the blog hop projects thanks to Stitch & Hustle and WeCrochet.

Don’t forget to scroll all the way down for all of that information!
