Interweave Crochet Luna Sweater
This sweater is richly textured with faux cables accomplished with short single crochets and back-loop-only single crochets, with a punctuating double crochet. The sweater is worked in vertical rows from top to hem, with the ribbing worked at the same time as the main body pattern. Crocheted in the lovely, squishy Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash, this sweater is warm without being bulky. This pattern is from the Winter 2009 issue of Interweave Crochet.
