The Inspiration For My Crochet Baby Sweater Pattern

Hello friends! I am Nadia Moule from The Moule Hole. It is such an honour to be here designing something for all of you gorgeous people out there. I am a Canadian girl living in England and even though I love it here, I definitely get homesick for the Great North.

I grew up in a small town called Fairview in Northern Alberta where temperatures in the winter can plummet to minus forty degrees. I have so many fond memories of sledding, skiing and snowmobiling in the hills that surround The Peace River.

I designed The Peace River Pullover whilst daydreaming about a little log cabin in the woods I used to visit as a child. I can still smell the old fireplace burning wood, I can taste the hot chocolate with gooey marshmallows and feel the warmth of the room as I fell asleep to the sound of my relatives playing guitars and fiddles and singing old country songs.

I hope to spend some time with my children in this magical winter wonderland some day but for now, they can keep cozy in the “Peace River Pullover”.

The Perfect Classic Crochet Sweater Yarn

I chose Lion Brand Wool-Ease for the The Peace River Pullover. This is my first time working with Wool Ease and I have fallen for it, hard! The colours are perfect for the rustic and cozy style of the sweater and the stitch texture looks incredible, especially the bobble motif.

Free crochet pattern for a children's pullover sweater made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn in colors Natural Heather and Forest Green Heather.

I adore how soft the yarn feels on my hands while crocheting and how it easily slides along my hook. It will keep your little one very toasty on a cold winter’s day! I cannot wait to work with this yarn again and may have to whip up something for myself in one of the amazing colours.

A No Fuss, Seamless, Top-Down Raglan Construction

The Peace River Pullover is a great pattern to try if you have been doing simple crochet garments and want to push yourself to the next level. It is constructed in a raglan style which means it is worked from the top down. The sleeves are added on after you complete the body of the sweater.

If you haven’t tried the bobble stitch yet, this is a great way to learn it! Another exciting stitch in this pattern is front/back post double crochet (fpdc/bpdc) which creates a ribbed edging. It may look intimidating but once you learn it you will be so happy you did.

If you need some guidance with any of these techniques I have video tutorial’s for the bobble stitch, sleeve separation, sleeve join and fpdc/bpdc on my website.

I do have a wonderful PDF version of this pattern with colour coordinated sizing, all stitch counts and extra photos available from Etsy, Ravelry, or LoveCrafts.

Explanation: The Peace River Pullover is a quick project using worsted weight yarn. The graphic “tree” bobbles on the sleeves are perfect for the winter season ahead. The raglan design means there is minimal seaming at the end. The sleeves are worked back and forth and then seamed up at the end so it is easy to keep track of stitch counts. This is the perfect project for these chilly, dark and cozy evenings in front of a fire or a few candles.
