This cute lil’ crop combines texture both thru the yarn choices and stitch patterns. A folded collar gives it a classic vintage feel and a polished look. Two color brioche adds amped up texture with the help of fuzzy Suri alpaca yarn! The body is kept engaging with a simple slip stitch texture. Short sleeves and a cropped length will keep this sweater in your closet for all seasons! – Andrea Mowry

Vintage ’83 pattern by Drea Renee Knits

Vintage ’83 is a cute cropped short-sleeve sweater by Drea Renee Knits created in Ritual Dyes’ Maven as the base, with The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers in Oh Dang! as colourful striped details.

We stock original yarn bundles for this project, or make your own combination with individual skeins here.

This sweater is knit from the top down beginning with the folded collar. The circular yoke is adorned with 2 color brioche, and then you will separate the sleeves placing them on hold while the body is finished with a simple slip stitch textured pattern. The sleeves are then returned to the needle, picking up stitches for the underarm for a totally seamless sweater!
