Overall, I’m quite pleased with my new Country Grace Pullover. It was an easy crochet pattern to follow worked in a stitch pattern similar to the classic granny stitch, and easy to adjust to fit just the way I wanted. This is an excellent Spring and Summer top, though living in Florida, I will enjoy it all year long.

This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).
This pattern was very easy to follow. Don’t let the pattern scare you at all because it’s worked in just simple chains, single crochets and treble crochets. If you can work a double crochet, a treble crochet is just one extra yarn over in the beginning, and one extra yarn over and pull through in the end. It also mentions blocking, but it’s not necessary. I did not block my top, and the fit and stitch pattern is still great. All these things make this a great project for a confident beginner.
