I’ve always wanted to design a batwing pullover. Not only does the batwing resemble my favourite shape (the triangle), but the style is so fun and flattering on all shapes and sizes. 

Loading...

To write this pattern, I had to break the design down into parts and take you through them step-by-step. This will help you navigate through the construction process to achieve a pullover perfectly made for you. I’ve never written a pattern like this one before, but I’m glad I did. This pattern is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.

The Yarn

I designed this pullover using Loops & Threads Meandering Serpentine. I picked up this yarn while on a shopping trip to
Michael’s last fall. I had already filled my basket with all of my needs (and a few wants) and was cruising past the clearance bins when the beautiful pale lilac colour caught my eye. I was instantly smitten. I quickly checked the price sticker and saw that it had been marked down considerably. I was definitely sold. I put 6 hanks in my basket and took them home to decide their fate.

I was a bit perplexed at first as to why Loops & Threads would release this yarn in hanks instead of skeins. But once I wound the first one into a cake, I saw that the soft variations of colour really stand out better in hank form.

As I started to work with the yarn, I quickly realized that it is not a typical #4 worsted weight as it is labelled. I did a quick measurement and found it t be 12 WPI, which is actually in the #3 DK weight range. This is why I recommend using a #3 DK weight yarn with this project. A couple of my testers did use #4 worsted for their projects and were successful, but they did remark that it made the pullover a bit heavier.

Finished Sizes:

Instructions given to fit size X-small; changes for small, medium, large, X-large, 2X-large, 3X-large, 4X-large and 5X-large are in () 

XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) 

To Fit Bust Size: 28” (32”, 36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”, 56”, 60”)

Note: I have written this pattern so that the bottom band matches the above bust measurements. It is easy to choose a different size later in the pattern. 

Finished Length: Approximately 23”. 

Materials:

I used Loops & Threads Meandering Serpentine, which is 90% Acrylic, 10% Nylon yarn. This yarn is labelled as a #4 worsted, but at 12 wpi, it is closer to a #3 dk weight.

Any yarn of similar weight would work.

Instructions

Before we jump in, I would like to go over the construction of this pullover. We will be creating a large flat piece. This piece consists of many parts, which we will be adding in a join-as-you-go method. Once the flat piece is complete, we will then fold it in half. Then, we will sew the bottoms of the sleeves, add the sides, cuffs, bottom hem, and finish off the neckline. It sounds like a lot, but I have broken it down into a series of steps and drawn some illustrations to help you along the way.

Part 1

Part 1 (see Figure 2) is the largest part of this pattern. It is basically a big diamond with a triangle shaped neck hole in the middle.

Part 2

In Part 2 we will be adding a little bit of length to the sleeves. With the right side of your project facing you, join your yarn in the front in the st just after the ch2 (noted in Figure 7 and marked in red in Figure 8).

Part 2 is complete, but do not bind off. We will continue from here on to Part 3.

Part 3

Part 3 is where we add width to the front of the sleeve. I have written this pattern so that you can choose a sleeve width from the options I have provided. We all have different arms, so the best way to choose a sleeve size is to measure the circumference of your arm at the bend in your elbow. If your forearm is much bigger than your elbow, then use your forearm measurement. Then choose from the options below, whichever size is closest to your measurement.

Part 4

For Part 4, we will add width to the back of the sleeve. Join your yarn in the top of the 1st dc after the ch1 (see Figure 10). 

Sum Of Its Parts Pullover - Free Crochet Pattern
Figure 10

Repeat Part 3 starting with row 1. Work the same number of rows as you did in Part 3. At the end of Part 4, you will bind off. If you worked an even amount of rows in part 4 (ending on row 8, 10, 12, etc), you can bind off with a long enough tail to seam your sleeve later on. If you worked an odd number of rows, you can bind off as normal. 

Part 5, 6, and 7

Parts 5, 6, and 7 are the same as Parts 2, 3, and 4, with a few differences:

– At the beginning of Part 5, you will join your yarn in the st just after the ch2 at the back of the sweater (see Figure 11). 

– In Part 6, you will be adding width to the back of the sleeve (see Figure 12). 

– In Part 7, you will be adding width to the front of the sleeve (see Figure 13).

From here, you may notice that the rest of the pattern does not contain stitch counts. This is because there are many possibilities of what your stitch counts could be, depending on the combination of body size and sleeve size you choose. But not to worry! The rest is pretty easy.

Sleeve Seaming

Next, we will seam the bottoms of the sleeves shut. But before we do that, we have to figure out how far down to seam them. This is where the sizing of your pullover comes into play. 

Figure 14

– First, you will fold your pullover in half with the right sides facing each other. Lay it out on a flat surface like in Figure 14. Make sure your front and back are matched up so the bottoms are even with each other. 

– Decide on what you want the bottom circumference of your pullover to be. Under the sizing above, I have listed the standard bust measurements for each size, but you are welcome to make the bottom circumference any size you wish. Once you know the bottom circumference you are aiming for, divide it in half. That will be your pullover width. 

– Take your measuring tape, and place it across your pullover. (I couldn’t get a clear picture with my measuring tape, so I drew one onto Figure 14. ) Move the tape up or down to where your pullover matches the width of the size you are aiming for. I wanted my width to be 22”, so I placed my tape where my pullover measured 22”. Place stitch markers at the ends of your tape (you can also see these in Figure 14). 

Note: If the bottom matches your desired width, all you have to do is sew the seams up all the way down. 

– Now you will count how many stitches you have between your stitch marker and the bottom of your pullover. You want there to be an even number of stitches. You also want to check that you have the front and back half matched up, so there are the same number of stitches on the back and front. Move your stitch marker up or down to the proper place. If you have one, use a locking stitch marker so that you can hold the front and back together securely. Do the same for both sides of the pullover. 

– Once you have placed your stitch markers in the proper place and checked them, you can sew the bottom seams of the sleeves from the stitch markers, all the way up to the sleeve opening. You may use any sewing technique you like. Once both of your sleeves are sewn, turn your pullover right side out. 

Sides

We will now build onto the sides so that the bottom matches your desired width. You will do this by working decrease stitches at the beginning of the row, in the corner, and at the end. The process will look similar to Figures 15, 16, and 17. 

Figure 15
Figure 16
Figure 17

First, you will figure out if you’re starting with the right or wrong side facing you. Take a look at which row you finished on in Step 3. If it says (Right side), then join your yarn in the 1st stitch with the wrong side of your work facing you. If it says (Wrong side), then join your yarn in the 1st stitch with the right side facing you. 

Now you will follow the directions below according to what row you ended on in Part 3. Begin with the proper row below and continue on to the subsequent rows. (Example: If you finished Step 6 with row 7, begin at row 1 below and continue on to rows 2, 3, 4, etc.) You will only follow the instructions until you have a total of 8 or 12 stitches left. Then you will work the final row as instructed below. If after seaming you only have 8 or 12 sts left, then skip this part and continue on to the final row. 

If you finished on row 7, begin here:

1. Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog), dc in next st. Cdc in next 2 sts and each st across until there are only 4 sts left before the corner. Dc in next st, dc3tog over next 3 sts. Dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc in next st. Cdc in next 2 sts and each st until there are only 4 sts left unworked. Dc in next st, dc3tog over last 3 sts. Turn. 

If you finished on row 8, begin here: 

2. Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog). Dc in next st and each st across until there are only 3 sts left before the corner. Dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc3tog over next 3 sts. Dc in each st across until there are only 3 sts left unworked. Dc3tog over last 3 sts. Turn. 

If you finished on row 9, begin here:

3. Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog), dc in next st. Cdc in next 2 sts and each st across until there are only 4 sts left before the corner. Dc in next st, dc3tog over next 3 sts. Dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc in next st. Cdc in next 2 sts and each st until there are only 4 sts left unworked. Dc in next st, dc3tog over last 3 sts. Turn. 

If you finished on row 10, begin here:

4. Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog). Dc in next st and each st across until there are only 3 sts left before the corner. Dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc3tog over next 3 sts. Dc in each st across until there are only 3 sts left unworked. Dc3tog over last 3 sts. Turn. 

If you finished on row 11, begin here:

5. Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog), dc in next st. *Ps in next st, sk 1 st. ** Repeat from * to ** until there are only 4 sts left before the corner. Dc in next st, dc3tog over next 3 sts. Dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc in next st. *Sk 1 st, ps in next st. ** Repeat from * to ** until there are only 4 sts left unworked. Dc in next st, dc3tog over last 3 sts. Turn. 

If you finished on row 12, begin here:

If you finished on row 13, begin here:

If you complete row 10 and you still have more than 8 or 12 sts left, repeat rows 3 – 10 until you have only 8 or 12 sts left unworked. Then work the final row as instructed below. 

Final row: 

For those with 8 sts left: Ch2, dc in next st (counts as a dc2tog), tr2tog over next 2 sts, tr2tog over next 2 sts, dc2tog over last 2 sts. Bind off. 

For those with 12 sts left: Ch2, dc2tog (counts as a dc3tog), tr3tog over next 3 sts, tr3tog over next 3 sts, dc3tog over last 3 sts. Bind off. 

Your work should now look similar to Figure 18.

Bottom Band

We will now add the bottom band. With the right side facing you, attach your yarn anywhere along the bottom of the pullover. 

1. Ch1. Sc evenly around the bottom of the sweater in the following manner: 

– 3 sc in the side of each dc, cdc, or ps row. 

– 1 sc in the tops of each tr3tog or tr2tog (at the sides). 

– 2 sc in each ch2 sp (at the front and back)

– Work in the above manner around the entire bottom of the sweater, then count how many stitches you have. You want an even number, so if your number is odd, then add or subtract 1 st to make it even. 

– Ss to join to 1st sc. Turn. 

2. Ch3, Dc in next st and each st around. Ss to join to 1st dc. Turn. 

3. Ch2, fpdc around 1st st, bpdc around next st. *Fpdc around next st, bpdc around next st. ** Repeat from * to ** around. Ss to join to 1st fpdc. Turn.

7. Ch1. Sc in 1st st and each st around. Ss to join to 1st sc. Bind off. 

Sleeve Cuffs

Now we will add cuffs to the sleeves. With the right side facing you, attach your yarn near the underarm of the sleeve. 

1. Ch1. Sc evenly around the edge of the sleeve in the following manner: 

– 1 sc in the bottom of the sleeve. 

– 3 sc in the side of each dc, cdc, or ps row. 

– 1 sc in the ch1 sp (at the top of the sleeve) 

– Work in the above manner around the entire edge of the sleeve, then count how many stitches you have. You want an even number, so if your number is odd, then add or subtract 1 st to make it even. 

– Ss to join to 1st sc. Turn.

2. Ch3, Dc in next st and each st around. Ss to join to 1st dc. Turn. 

3. Ch2, fpdc around 1st st, bpdc around next st. *Fpdc around next st, bpdc around next st. ** Repeat from * to ** around. Ss to join to 1st fpdc. Bind off. 

Neckline

With the right side facing you, attach your yarn anywhere on the neckline (it would look best at the back or close to the shoulder).

1. Ch1. Sc evenly around the neckline in the following manner: 

– 3 sc in the side of each dc, cdc, and ps row along the back of the neckline. 

– 1 sc in the ring at the center back.

– 1 sc in each ch st along the front of the neckline. 

– Sc in this manner around the entire neckline. 

– Ss to join to 1st sc. Bind off.

  1. Dear Sarah,
    I love how detailed your instructions are! I usually limit patterns to those with a chart, as I find the usual written pattern confusing. I also appreciate that you explain how to fudge when the count is slightly off and have pictures to clarify tricky parts. I plan to try this for fall and hope you will continue to design and write patterns in this way.
    Many thanks,
    Holly

      Happy Hooking!
      Sarah
