    What is a CAL?

    A CAL or Crochet Along is a virtual event in which makers from all around the world get together to worn on the same pattern during a set period of time. There are usually live virtual events and lots of prizes to win!

    About Fogata

    The Fogata Pullover is what cozy dreams are made of! 

    Inspired by the classic Nordic round-yoke pullovers, the Fogata Pullover has a relaxed fit with striking colorwork around the yoke, body and sleeves with a close-to-the neck neckline which can be turned into a turtle-neck. It is worked top-down and all colorwork is done using tapestry crochet and following a color chart. The body can be as long as desired and it sports a super flattering high-low rounded hem. Given the yarn weight used and the big stitches, it is a quick project that you won’t be able to put down!

    Look below for Materials and Sizing Information!

    Lookbook

    The Lookbook includes all of the information you need in order to choose your size. It also includes information on each of the testers’ samples such as size made, yarn used and mods!

    It’s a WONDERFUL source of inspiration!!

    Sizes + Measurements

    This pattern comes in 8 different sizes, covering all 9 sizes of the CYC Standards. The instructions for each size are color-coded and in the order shown here: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) (6, 7, 8).

    When choosing a size, it is recommended to consider the finished measurements of the garment, desired ease and your actual body measurements. To do this, measure a garment that you like the fit of and make the size that more closely matches the measurements of that garment.

    These are the approximate measurements of the finished garment:

    Bust*: 87.5 (102, 116.5, 131, 145.5) (160, 174.5, 189) cm / 34½ (40, 45¾, 51½, 57¼) (63, 68¾, 74½) in

    Neck Circumference: 43 (43, 43, 46.5, 50) (54, 55.5, 57.5) cm / 17 (17, 17, 18¼, 19¾) (21¼, 22, 22¾) in

    Upper Arm Circumference: 31 (31, 32.5, 36.5, 45.5) (52.5, 52.5, 52.5) cm / 12¼ (12¼, 13, 14¼, 18) (20¾, 20¾, 20¾) in

    Cuff Before Ribbing: 27.5 (27.5, 29, 30, 32) (32.5, 32.5, 34.5) cm / 10¾ (10¾, 11½, 11¾, 12½) (13, 13, 13½) in

    Sleeve Length from Underarm**: 40 cm / 15¾ in

    Body Length from Underarm**: 35 – 40 cm / 13¾ – 15¾ in at front. 41 – 46 cm / 16 – 18 in at back.

    * to be worn with 15 – 30 cm / 6 – 12 in of positive ease around bust.

    Materials

    The YARN

    The pattern calls for Bulky weight yarn.
    My sample was made with Knit Picks, Wonderfluff.
    A lovely and airy blend of 70% Baby Alpaca, 7% Merino Wool, 23% Nylon (50g / 142 yds) in the colors Hare Heather (MC), Cosmopolitan (CCA) and Turquoise Heather (CCB).

    Yarn Substitutes

    Any bulky or chunky weight yarn will work, but keep in mind that dense yarns will make for a heavy pullover. In order to have a light garment that is warm but nor overwhelming, I recommend using airy or blown yarns like Wonderfluff.

    Here are some I recommend based on their weight and fiber content:

    On the more denser side, these are some other good options:

    Yardage and other Materials

    The following is the amount of yarn required by size for a hip-length pullover as per sample:

    MC: 575 (660, 765, 890, 1020) (1170, 1275, 1400) m / 630 (720, 835, 970, 1115) (1275, 1395, 1540) yds

    CCA: 155 (280, 205, 240, 275) (315, 340, 375) m / 170 (195, 225, 260, 300) (345, 375, 410) yds

    CCB: 100 (110, 130, 150, 170) (200, 215, 235) m / 105 (120, 140, 165, 190) (215, 235, 260)yds

    You will need approximately this many balls of Knit Picks, Wonderfluff per color: MC: (6678) (91011)CCA: (2223) (333)CCB: (1222) (222).

    Amounts given include 5% extra for swatching and margin of error. Keep in mind that modifications such as changing length or adding hip shaping will impact the total amount needed.

    HOOKS: 7 mm or size needed to meet gauge.

    NOTIONS: stitch markers, tapestry needle.

    Gauge

    11 sts x 10 rows in esc worked in the round with 7 mm hook and after blocking = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 in.

    Be sure to block and check gauge before starting by making a big enough gauge swatch (at least 15 x 15 cm / 6 x 6 in). Certain materials might sag and fabric will extend too much with weight, so adjust hook size appropriately.
