Cosmopolitan Sweater

This batwing sweater will make you feel both comfortable, and effortlessly elegant. With loads of positive ease at the bust, it provides warmth and comfort, and the stretchy ribbing hugs your hips and wrists, keeping everything in place. All the while the alpine stitch pattern works its magic and embraces you in waves upon waves of three-dimensional texture. The printable PDF pattern includes clear instructions and a bunch of tips & tricks and tutorial photos, leaving no guesswork for you. It also comes with a helpful row tracker, laying out every single row and stitch count for each size separately. This way you can easily check your stitch count and track your progress at any time.

Cosmopolitan Shawl

Wrap yourself in texture with this eye-catching, textured crochet shawl! The dense nature of the alpine stitch creates a thicker fabric that will keep you warm, while the faux-knit bands allow the shawl to fold perfectly into shape every time you wear it. With a wingspan of almost 70″, you can wear it around your neck like a scarf, or resting around your shoulders to really show off all the details!
