Crochet Gradvis Sweater – FREE Crochet Pattern

Crochet Gradvis Sweater – FREE Crochet Pattern

Finally, the Crochet Gradvis Sweater is here! I’ve been working on this for a while now & finally I’m able to release it.

You’re going to love this sweater, because it’s such a pleasure to make. It’s real fun because of the gradual color changes, but also because it’s a sweater that will gradually grow while you make it.

Why is it named Gradvis? Well, because that’s the Norwegian word for gradual & it describes the sweater very well.

The process of crocheting this sweater won’t be a fast one, but rather a slow process that’s truly unhurried. It’s like a slow meditative & exciting journey to see this sweater grow from a few hanks of yarn.

THE YARN


For this crochet pattern the suggested yarn is a hand dyed yarn from Garnsurr.

Garnsurr was created as a social integration project for refugees in Norway. They sell a huge variety of colorful & beautifully hand dyed yarns.

Since they started on February 1st in 2017, they have continued to create & sell beautiful yarns.

 

For this pattern the yarn use was their Søkke Merino, in 3 beautiful colors.
The only one used that are pictured is the one furthest to the right.

THE PERFECT HAND DYED YARN CROCHET PROJECT


Have you seen them? The beautiful knitted sweaters with all the hand dyed yarn?

But what about crocheted sweaters? There’s not a lot out there right?

Because if that I’ve been on a mission to make a beautiful crochet sweater that utilizes hand dyed yarn this year.

 

The sweater can be made in a combination of 3 different yarn colors & plays beautifully with the colors from the hand dyed yarns. I’ve made sure to make the color changes smooth, to make it look like it all melts together.

I would recommend that you pick 3 colors that have at least 1 nuance of the same color when choosing colors. That would make the sweater look cohesive.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

ABOUT THE PATTERN:


The crochet Gradvis Sweater is the perfect crochet sweater that uses hand dyed yarn.

It’s called “Gradvis” because it’s not a quick one day project, but it’s a sweater you’ll gradually finish as you make one stitch at a time. A meditative, calming & enjoyable piece to crochet.

You will need hand dyed yarn in 3 different colors to crochet this sweater.

What’s so great about it is the fact that it can be made in 9 different sizes, ranging from XS to 5XL. There’s also suggestions on how you can customize it to fit you perfectly.

The sweater is a little bit higher in the back of the neck for it to fit perfectly & also a little bit longer on the lower edging on the body.

Choose your favorite hand dyed yarn & enjoy this sweater pattern!

  • The main stitch will widen when used with some yarns. Measurements given are on a finished sweater before it’s used.
  • Take measurements to find the size that fits the best.

 

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS:

Note: Any size adjustments affect yarn usage & you might need more/less yarn than suggested.

 

Yoke:

  • Adjust body & armhole width by making the yoke bigger.

 

Body:

  • For all sizes: Adjust length by adding or reducing rounds at the end, before adding edging on round 54-56.

 

Arms:

  • For all sizes: Skip decreases to make the arm wider.
  • For all sizes: Decrease more frequently in the same manner to make the arm narrower.
  • For all sizes: Best way to increase or decrease length is to add/reduce evenly the number of rows you crochet between the rows where you’re instructed to decrease stitches.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


You will need to use the foundation single crochet stitch, foundation double crochet, single crochet, double crochet, front post double crochet stitch, special stitch (SP), chain & slip stitch.

 

FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FSC):

Written description:

Step 1: Ch 2 st.

Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

 

Video tutorial.

 

FOUNDATION DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH (FDC):

*When using this technique after the FSC technique in this pattern, just do step 3 below. 

 

Written description:

Step 1: Ch 3 st.

Step 2: Yo, insert hook into 3rd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through 2 loops. Yo and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

Step 3: Yo, insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through 2 loops. Yo and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

 

Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *last 2 ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

 

SPECIAL STITCH (SP):

Written description:

In next stitch draw up a loop, yo, pull through 1, yo, pull through 1, yo, pull through last 2 loops.

 

When crocheting the next SP, pull the hook with the loop & stitch down when inserting the hook in the next stitch, this will make the previous stitch break in the middle & create texture.

 

CROCHET 2 SPECIAL STITCHES TOGETHER (SP2tog):

Written description:

In next stitch draw up a loop, yo, pull through 1, in the next stitch draw up another loop, yo, pull through 1, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through last 2 loops.

 

CROCHET 3 SPECIAL STITCHES TOGETHER (SP3tog):

Written description:

In next stitch draw up a loop, yo, pull through 1, you have 2 loops on the hook, in the next stitch draw up another loop, yo, pull through 1, you have 3 loops on the hook, in the next stitch draw up another loop, yo, pull through 1, you have 4 loops on the hook, yo, pull through 3, yo, pull through last 2 loops.

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED: 


GRADUAL COLOR CHANGES:

To crochet this sweater & achieve the gradual color changes as pictured, you will have to follow these instructions. This is optional & doesn’t have to be exact stitch by stitch.

The goals is to make a gradual, but not systematic change of color. This will make the different colors land randomly on top of each other.

When nearing the end of one color, you will have to start alternating between the yarn color you’re working with & the new color. This isn’t specified in the pattern & you will have to start this process when you feel you have less than 4-5 rounds left on your skein.

If you want the exact rounds the colors where changed on the sweater pictured, see a list below.

 

First color change round: 3 st with color A, 1 st with color B.

Second color change round: 3 st with color A, 1 st with color B.

Third color change round: 2 st with color B, 2 st with color A.

Fourth color change round: 2 st with color B, 2 st with color A.

Fifth color change round: 3 st with color B, 1 st with color A.

Sixth color change round: 3 st with color B, 1 st with color A.

 

This process should be repeated each time you change colors.

Be aware, that this should also be done evenly on color changes when working on both the sleeves & the body of the sweater.

 

Color changes on sweater pictured: 

Yoke: Round 28-34.

Body & arms: Round 2-8

  3. Thank you so much for the pattern, I hope to make one for my Daughter for Christmas next year and really appreciate that you show so many sizes. I believe she is either a 2X or 3X and she looks just like her Great, Great Grandmother. I take after my Mother and I’m lucky if I am 4″9″ and barely weight 100 pounds dripping wet so I might even try making one for myself.

  20. Hi, I love it and i’m trying to understand the double stitch. You said to pull it to make texture, is there a video on it? Thank you

    angela
    Dec 6, 2018 Reply
    • The SP stitch isn’t hard, but I adjusted the description:

      When crocheting the next SP, pull the hook  with the loop & stitch down when inserting the hook in the next stitch, this will make the previous stitch break in the middle & create texture.

      Does that make it easier to understand?

      At the moment I don’t have a video for this stitch, but I may make one as soon as I get the chance to do it 🙂
