I was waiting for some time to show you this Delighted Sweater – Dress that I designed for Hobbii.
This Delighted Jumper -Dress is the bigger sister of the Delighted Jumper. This garment is also super easy to make and to wear. It can be worn as a dress or as a Jumper with leggings or a pair of jeans. It’s fashionable and it’s a great piece to have it in your wardrobe.
Actually when I was making the Delighted Sweater (which by the way, you can find the pattern also on Hobbii Website and also for FREE) I was just trying to test the round yoke because I had in mind to make this dress and I wanted to make sure that it will be perfect.
I truly love this Delighted Sweater Dress and is one of my favorite designs.
Let’s talk a bit more about the design and how you can make this dress and what materials you will need.
About the design
This Delighted Jumper – Dress is a top – down sweater-dress worked with the round yoke. We will start to work from the neck, working the yoke first and then separate the sleeves and work the body and sleeves individually.
It has an oversized design with a positive ease of 16 cm over the standard bust circumference. If you want a closer fit then you will have to make a size down. For size S just make less rounds on the yoke part.
You can adjust the length to the pockets and make them above or lower than in the pattern. When we are starting to make the pockets we will work the back and front separately and then after making the pockets high we will join again and work the rounds that we need to get to the desired length.
About the round yoke
The round yoke is not a big deal if you are paying attention on the stitches where you have to increase. The difference between a regular yoke (a square one) and a round yoke is that instead of increasing in 4 stitches to make the corners, we will increase in 6 stitches to make the round shape.
You will have all the details needed including a stitch chart into the pattern.
The pattern is available for sizes from S to XXL and is written in US terms and here you can download the pdf version for FREE. You will find in the pattern a diagram with final measurements for each size that will be helpful to just choose the write size for you.
Materials you will need
- 7 mm crochet hook (L-11 US size)
- You will need a yarn needle also to hide the ends
- 6 stitch markers
For this dress I used Wool Power from Hobbii in color Levanda Blue. This yarn is 100% wool, but is so soft and so skin friendly that I love it and it will definitely be one of my favorite yarn to work with next cold season.
So, this is a delighted project again. It will work pretty fast using the bigger hook and it’s perfect to wear it now in the spring time.
Hope you will get your pattern and make it. The pattern can be downloaded from here.
