The Bud Spencer Slipover

The Bud Spencer, a Crochet Slipover

A crochet slipover is the new must-have in crochet fashion land. Everybody’s making one!

The Bud Spencer slipover (or spencer as we call it in Dutch, hence the name) is perfect over a t-shirt, blouse or under a cardigan. In summer you can even wear it alone. It gives your outfit just that little bit extra. Extra colour, extra warmth, extra style.

Yarn selection: Amore cotton 170

I used Borgo de’pazzi Amore 170 and it is the perfect yarn for this slipover. It’s all season because of its composition: 75% cotton and 25% polyester. Light in summer, but a bit of warmth in winter.

What I love most about it is that it consists of only recycled materials. And of course the colours, the colours!!

It’s an aran weight yarn, but I used a 5.5mm crochet hook to give the top more drape.

In the Netherlands this yarn is imported by Fair yarns.

The pattern

This beginner friendly pattern is written in six sizes: XS/S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL. (Bust width: 88cm on XS/S up to 136 cm on XXXL.)

You’ll make two separate panels and then sew them together.
