Mauka Pullover

Posted: August 27, 2020 by admin

Welcome to the Mauka Pullover Crochet Pattern! You can find the kit available at Lion Brand Yarn. This is a free pattern and the low-cost PDF if available in my Shop, on Etsy and Ravelry.  

I was inspired to create a comfy pullover that I could wear on cool summer nights as well as I could also use in Fall to layer over tanks top or long sleeve shirts. I used Re-Tweed Yarn from Lion Brand in the color Sleet. Re-Tweed Yarn is made in an eco-friendly process, using nearly zero water, no dyes or chemicals, and close to zero CO2 emissions. When I first fell in love with crocheting I was constantly on the hunt for eco-friendly yarns and Lion Brand Yarn has created a beautiful yarn that is versatile as well as in a selection of beautiful colors. My tip for softening the yarn is to soak it fabric softener for a few hours, I use 7th Generation Lavender Fabric Softener, and then place the wet garment in a fine mesh lingerie bag and wash and dry. 

 I also used my Furls Odyssey Hook for this project too! I look forward to seeing your Mauka Pullovers!
