Traveler Crochet Sweater Pattern

During a time when traveling is restricted, I took to my yarn and traveled to places in my imagination while working up the Traveler Crochet Fair Isle Sweater Pattern. This pattern has an instructional video tutorial and comes in sizes extra small to 5X.

Traveler Crochet Sweater

Let’s talk about the fair isle yoke, right? I almost stopped at this point and framed it, a beautiful work of art created with some yarn and a crochet hook. However, why frame it when you can wear it of course.

The Yarn & Crochet Hook

Without the right tools, this is just not as much fun to create. I chose to work with the Wool of the Andes Yarn from WeCrochet and the Alpha Series Hook from Furls Crochet.

For my second sweater in the grey color, I decided to work it up with the Streamline Cafe Swirl. It’s okay to switch hooks as long as you can match gauge, but just a reminder to never switch hook styles in the middle of a project. Keep with the same crochet hook for the entire garment.
