Introducing the Upside-Down Crochet Jumper pattern. I’ve been wanting to create a cosy sweater which I simply don’t want to take off all winter and here it is!
You can download the add free PDF pattern from Ravelry, Etsy or Love Crafts Crochet.
The style of the Upside-down sweater is loose, but not oversized and the shape would fit right into the 80s! Plus it’s completely unisex.
The stitch pattern in the body is worked one way (bottom-up) and for the sleeves is worked the other (shoulder down) – but which one is upside-down?

Skill Level & Special Stitches
This project is suitable for an advanced beginner and would make an ideal first garment project. Using basic stitches (in US terms) there is also a tutorial to help make the cuff and hem which you can see on this post.
The pattern includes picture guides to aid with construction and a video tutorial showing how to create the ribbing on the cuffs, hem and neck line.
The upside-down sweater uses from 850yds (XS/S) to 1300yds (X1/X2) Aran / Heavy worsted / 10ply Yarn and a 6mm hook.
The pattern is available in sizes XS/S, M, L and X1/X2 all written out separately.
The approximate measurements of all the sizes are detailed in the pattern along with gauge information.
