Roxanne Sweater Pattern


Hi everyone! It’s me, Shannon, also known as @shannoncreates_! I'm back again on the blog sharing another pattern using The Hook Nook’s AMAZING yarn in one of my favorite colors! If you follow me on Instagram or have seen one of my previous patterns, then you know I always talk about my love for texture and how I love incorporating my style into my work. To me, if you are going to use your hands to make something then it should feel perfect and customized to you, and that every time you wear it, it gives you a special feeling.

Recently, I have found a new love in DK or light weight yarn… I used to be a worsted weight queen and being a crocheter, I feel like for garments we sometimes lean toward worsted weight yarn (or maybe it’s just me?). When I got my hands on “Green Thumb” from The Hook Nook’s Small Stuff line, I knew I had to make a garment or something wearable out of it. It's so soft and the color felt perfect to me. Green is one of my favorite colors, and “Green Thumb” reminded me of hiking and nature, seeing the moss that covers the bark on the trees and stone.

Meet Roxanne! Roxanne was a pattern I began this past fall. I wanted a simple piece that was cozy, fun, and a bit flirty! Using the moss stitch, Roxanne has this sweet texture that isn’t bulky or overbearing, and makes you want to rub your hands all over her. The pattern is writing so that you can make a shorter or longer version depending on what style you are looking for. You can make a cropped, or even a dress version! It is all about you!

For my “Foxy Roxy” I wanted her to feel a bit more high fashion or like a shorter dress! I wanted to feel fun and flirty while wearing her. Big thanks to Antonio who captured all the final shots of Roxanne, and was able to capture my perfect Roxanne aesthetic. Be sure to check out his page, and be sure to tag me in photos of your own Roxy!
