Lightweight and versatile, The Aberdeen Sweater is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe. Light enough to layer, yet warm enough for brisk days; comfy enough for lounging, but still perfect for hanging out at your favorite coffee shop. With its easy-to-adjust size, you can customize your sweater to you; if you have a longer torso, simply add rows on the front and back, if you’d like more of a crop-top feel, just omit a few rows. This modern crochet pattern is quick and easy, great for beginners and experts alike!

This pattern is written as a one-size-fits-most, and can be easily adjusted to custom measurements. Model is a general Medium size.


Let me start off this post with Happy Birthday to my amazing, beautiful friend, Sierra! She's a pretty awesome person and if you get the chance to meet her, your life will be better for it! She's fun, funny, talented and a Jill of all trades! You need to check out her Etsy shop: Altitude Goods Co.

Ok, back to the post...This beautiful sweater was created by my dear friend, Sierra. She has an amazing eye for color, design and is just an amazing person all together. I had the great joy of being able to assist in her creation of her first pattern. Let me give you some back story on the pattern.

A few months ago, Sierra had crocheted herself a sweater. Since we are both big yarn nuts, she sent me a picture of her finished project. I LOVED it! It was so cute and I dropped the not so subtle hint that I would love one! So she made me one! When I opened the box and pulled out the beautiful, handmade sweater, I knew immediately that she needed to create a pattern and sell it!

Sierra set off to work and wrote the pattern. I got to read through it, helps with some edits and of course, test crochet it! I had worn the sweater she had made me to Got Your Goat, and the ladies raved over it. I was given Noro Mirai to make one for the shop. Enter the test crochet. I need to get some pictures of the sweater I had crocheted. But until then, enjoy the pictures taken by Dennis.

My husband, Dennis Schrader, is a photographer and shot the pictures for her pattern. You can view Dennis's work HERE
