The Wren is an Easy 4-Motif Pullover Crochet Pattern that can be made in any weight yarn, and made to fit any size.
This is a project dedicated to the exploration of gauge. You can make this sweater with only 4 motifs in any weight yarn, and the math has been worked out for 9 sizes, too! You have two unique options for adjusting the gauge to make any size: either match the gauge and make the motifs exactly as written. Or you can continue in established pattern to grow the motifs larger for the perfect fit.The sample is shown in worsted weight yarn and size 36.
Feel welcome to explore any of the stitch patterns in Crochet Power Book to further customize this design.
