The Pattern

The Kid’s Textured Turnover sweater is an all-in-one constructed sweater that uses only ribbing for shaping.

Here, the kids’ version is made with a generous fit to accomodate lots of busy play.

Starting at the bottom of the front, rows are worked in one single piece all the way up to the shoulders, past the neckline, and down to the bottom of the back (yes, even the sleeves and cuffs!).

Then after a couple of seams, the final piece is adding a little structure with some body ribbing.

What I like best about this sweater is the stitch pattern. Working in something called the spider stitch, single crochets and chains are combined in a very simple repeat that makes it easy to keep track of your stitch count.

If you’re making this for a young one in your life WHILE you’re doing life with them, this design makes it easy to keep track of where you are in the pattern.

SEAMING

  • Fold the sweater in half so the neckline is at the top.
  • Line up the front and back edges of the sweater, and the bottoms of the sleeves.
  • Seam with ss from the bottom of the sweater, up the side, and down the bottom of the sleeve.
  • Repeat on the other side.

Note: If the ss are turning out too tight for these seams, try adding a ch1 in-between each ss

BOTTOM RIBBING

At one side of the sweater bottom, add your yarn and ch 6(8,8,10,10).

Row 1: skip a ch and ss5(7,7,9,9). Ss into the next (sc,ch,sc) section along the bottom edge of the sweater. Turn.

Row 2: skip the last ss you did and ssBLO in the remaining 5(7,7,9,9)sts. Ch1 and turn.

Row 3: ssBLO in the 5(7,7,9,9)cuff sts. ss into the next (sc,ch,sc) section. Turn.

Repeat rows 2-3 all the way around the sweater. The exact number of rows may vary. Ideally, finish on a row 2 so that the seam can go from the end of the ribbing inward.

To seam the ribbing, ssBLO of your last row and BLO of the first row together. Ss to the sweater end so there’s no hole, and bind off.
