Ten Easy Crochet Sweaters

Sep 23, 2013

You've made baskets of hats and several afghans, but you've yet to tackle your first crochet sweater. Or you're looking for a fast and easy sweater pattern to whip up the perfect cardigan before fall's cool weather and fashion settles in. Maybe you need an easy gift option for someone who has always wanted a hand crocheted garments. We have pulled ten of our favorite easy crochet sweaters together into one affordable booklet. Here are a few of my picks:

 
 

The Two Skein Project

The Wrinkle Vest by Tracy St. John calls for only 2-3 skeins and has bust sizing from 34 inches to 50 inches. This lacy cardigan is perfect for any season. Pair it with a cute sundress or a long-sleeved shirt and jeans. Top-down raglan construction means you won't need to worry about seaming either.

 
 

Drape Not Shape

The Trellis Pullover by Elissa Sugishita is worked from side to side, creating gorgeous stripes of solid and openwork fabric. The elegant drape of sport-weight bamboo yarn is wonderfully slimming while a lack of shaping at the waist makes this an easy pattern to whip up.  Try working this garment with negative ease for a relaxed sophistication.

 
 

Everyday Cardigan

The Arboretum Cardigan by Annette Petavy is the perfect every-day cardigan. Short sleeves and a swing jacket shaping make this design the ultimate addition to jeans and a t-shirt. Embellish the collar with simple two-color flower motifs and a pop of green leaves. These embellishments make the cardigan a perfect layer for a dress or paired with a skirt.

 

You will also find an incredibly warm Tunisian crochet jacket, several more gorgeous lace designs, a comfortable tunic length cardigan, and even a men's pullover pattern. These ten patterns will teach you how to work crochet shells, Tunisian crochet, crochet ribbing, and more with easy patterns and directions.
