Is this Your Favorite Crochet Sweater?

May 5, 2014

Which crochet top pattern is your favorite? Because I can see the analytics, I have the wonderful opportunity to see which crochet sweater patterns are your favorites. And I have to say that I completely agree!

Here are five favorite sweater patterns. Is your favorite here?


Saturn Sweater

This crochet cardigan is a perfect layering piece. The colorful button band and surface crochet stripes around the yoke and sleeves are added after the bulk of the cardigan is finished. Create your cardigan in your favorite colors or in neutral shades that match everything.

Riverstone Cardigan

It's the texture and colorwork that make this cardigan a favorite of crocheters. It's also a great project to inspire you to dive into your stash. While you need between three and seven skeins of the main color (the pattern is sized to a 56 inch bust), you only need a couple of skeins of the contrasting colors.

Lotus Sweater

The delicate lace and elegant drape makes this crochet pullover is a sophisticated addition to your wardrobe.  With a touch of waist shaping in the back and a loose twist in the front, this sweater is also incredibly flattering.

Capri Cover

This pineapple motif inspired design is easily modified into a t-shirt length top, a tunic, or a dress. Wear your finished design over your bathing suit, with a simple cami, or with a simple shift. This design is highly addictive so prepare to create several variations. The cotton yarn and open-work lace fabric makes it a perfect summer project.

Cascade Pullover Tunic by Kristin Omdahl


Cascade Pullover Tunic

The medallion embellishments at the hem and sleeve edge elevate this pullover far beyond the ordinary. The medallions, in two colors, also enhance the front of the sweater. This crochet pullover is easily dressed up or down and is the perfect weight for spring, summer, and fall.

My favorite is a long-sleeved, cotton mesh sweater. (Sorry, not a pattern from this site.)  I wear it all the time: with a tank top in the summer and with long sleeves or turtleneck in the winter. I seriously need to make another!

I just finished the Lotus sweater. Love the drape and soft lines. I used a light fingering weight yarn instead of the sock weight. Easy pattern to work with; clever drape technique. Seaming was a little challenging so I used several seaming techniques e.g. mattress stitch for side seam; whipstitch for shoulders and slip stitch crochet for set in sleeves. Tip: block the shoulder portion of the sleeves before setting in the sleeves so you get a smooth finish. Be careful that the seams don't pucker when setting in the sleeves too.

I made the Riverstone Sweater. It was my first sweater and it turned out beautifully. I lengthened the sleeves and bodice. I would recommend it to anyone and novices should not be afraid! Tracey
