    Colour Patch Sweater

    Does this phrase make sense? Does it sound like good English?

    I know there is a colour block sweater, but when I google it I can see those blocks are way bigger than in the sweater I need to describe.

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    Is it a multi-coloured patchwork sweater?

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    It is multi-coloured, but there is no patchwork involved although the colour areas look more like patches than blocks.

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    Can you post a photo of the sweater in question? If we can't see it and you're having trouble describing it, I don't think we're going to be able to come up with the term for it.

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    It is a multicoloured sweater - four-coloured, to be more precise, but may be three or five. The sweater fabric is divided into different coloured areas. Those areas are like colour blocks, only smaller and less regular in shape - resembling blotches or patches. Is it more clear? You know what a colour block sweater is, don't you?

    You know what a colour block sweater is, don't you? I think so, yes!
    If there are several colours but no discernible pattern, it would be hard to describe. It's a multicoloured sweater! If you need to describe it in any greater detail, you'll have to use the description you gave us above.

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    There are different coloured areas spread over the surface in an irregular way. The pattern is random, organic...

    Re: Colour Patch Sweater

    That's a tough one. Patchwork definitely doesn't work.
