Quarter Zip Sherpa Pattern

My husband Paul had a favorite (mass produced) quarter zip sherpa style pullover that he loved. He loved it so much, in fact, that it is now beyond wearing outside of the house.

When he spotted my stash of Fable Fur yarn, I knew I had to design a new, super warm sherpa pattern for him to wear.  He wanted a quarter zip pullover, and I am so pleased with how this turned out!

This pattern comes in one size: men’s extra large. You can easily adjust it to a men’s large or up to a 2XL. To do this, you’ll first find the gauge with the recommended yarn (weight) and hook size. If you would like to make yours a bit smaller, go down a hook size from what it took to obtain gauge, and if you would like your pullover to come out a bit larger, go up a hook size. More on gauge here.

Don’t you think this would also work great as a vest, if you chose to leave the sleeves off?! I may need to make one for me next!

Rows 22 – 33: Ch-1, turn, hdc in each st around. Join. (25)

If desired, add a zipper. To do this, partially open the zipper and pin it into place starting at the top and working your way down. Using needle and thread that matches the zipper fabric, securely sew the zipper into place. Add a stopper to the zipper just below the separation at the sternum and trim. See a more in-depth tutorial on adding a zipper to crochet wearables here.

  1. I love the faux fur yarns , and I sure appreciate all the Free patterns you provide to work with this yarn. I've been a bit yarn-shy with faux fur, but your tips helped me put many of my fears to rest. I did, however, have to crack up because of the "bust" measurement for your husband's 1/4 zip jacket. There was a scene in Calamity Jane (I think that was the movie) where Doris Day goes into the men's store and asks for a shirt with a certain size "bust". Only men folk were in the store and they were either amused or embarrassed. Thanks again, Ashlea!
