Teguc Pullover Free Crochet Pattern

The Teguc Pullover is an easy crochet pattern that I really enjoyed designing. This pullover is the sister to my Halsey Cardigan. It’s completely seamless which makes it quick to finish. I used Kindred yarn from We Crochet. I LOVE this yarn! It’s so soft and easy to work with and I love the finished texture. It’s light and airy and feels great next to skin so it’s great for wearables.

This pullover is called the Teguc Pullover because I completed this design entirely in Tegucigalpa, Honduras while I was down there completing the adoption of my oldest daughter this summer. Which also makes it extremely spacial to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it! You can view the pattern for free below or purchase the PDF if you like to print your patterns.
