Marrakech Crochet Motif Pullover FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

This beautiful crochet motif is inspired by Moroccan tilework. Notice how there is a central design yet when you join the corners, the corner design turns into a central design as well! The motifs are joined as you go and the pattern shows you how to crochet each motif individually and join as you go. And, this motif is part of my book, Seamless Crochet. So if you want to learn to crochet this top with motifs that join as you go without cutting the yarn you can learn that additional lesson in the book and apply it to this sweater pattern!

Scroll to the bottom of the free pattern page to see the charts and schematics!

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
