Traveler Crochet Sweater Pattern Tutorial

Traveler Crochet Sweater Pattern Tutorial



During a time when traveling is restricted, I took to my yarn and traveled to places in my imagination while working up the Traveler Crochet Fair Isle Sweater Pattern. This pattern has an instructional video tutorial to guide through the important parts of the pattern and comes in sizes extra small to 5X.

Let’s talk about the fair isle yoke, right? I almost stopped at this point and framed it, a beautiful work of art created with some yarn and a crochet hook. However, why frame it when you can wear it of course.

There are two types of colorwork charts to work from, one with sample colors and the others with letters so you can fill in your colors of choice with pencils or crayons.

This sweater is worked in a top-down seamless yoke style with fair isle colorwork. The body of the sweater is worked continuously without joining. It is important to place a stitch marker at the beginning of the round to keep track of rounds.

When doing the colorwork the yarn will be carried along the back in the fair isle style. Try to not carry a color for more than 3 stitches so your floats aren’t too long. You can catch/trap the yarn behind a stitch to keep the floats consistent. To read more about colorwork please visit:

Special Stitches:
Split Single Crochet (ssc), also known as the waistcoat stitch:

Increasing Colorwork Part of Yoke: When the pattern says to ‘increase Color’, place 2 ssc into the next stitch. The chart is read from bottom up and each round from right to left.

Increasing Body: When the pattern says to increase x-amount of stitches around, increase by two stitches at once by placing 3 sc sts into a stitch in the blo or flo stitch pattern (blo sc, flo sc, blo sc) into one stitch. This will help keep the stitch pattern consistent.

Decreasing to Shape: If a fitted sweater is desired, decrease around the waist area by sc3tog on each side in the flo or blo stitch pattern. Invisible sc3tog: insert hook into the front loop of the next 3 sts, yo and pull a loop through all three front loops, yo and pull through final two loops.
