Slow Living is an elegant modern crochet skirt pattern whose name reflects the making experience. This is a relatively simple pattern which shows off the texture of the beautiful Herringbone stitch. The skirt is worked waist down from the ribbed waist band (where you may learn a new trick or two!) with some simple increases around the hips. The repetitive rounds in the main body of the skirt are perfect for mindful crochet and stitchflixing!Keep Reading
The crochet pattern for the Cloud Cover Roll-neck sweater is here just as the blue skies turn white and grey.

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.
This pattern 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.
The stitch pattern in the body is worked one way and in the sleeves is worked the other – but which one is upside-down?
The style is lose but not oversized and the shape would fit right into the 80s! Plus it’s completely unisex.
