How To Crochet The 3/4 Sleeve Sweater


The short sleeve crochet pullover is worked in 4 pieces. The front and back, as well as 2 sleeves. These pieces are seamed together with the whip stitch and finally you’ll crochet ribbing around the neck, sleeves and body.

To crochet this sweater you don’t have to know a lot of fancy crochet stitches, as the main parts are made with double crochet stitches and double crochet 3 together.

The ribbing is worked directly on the assembled crochet sweater and is made up of slip stitches and single crochet stitches, worked in the back loop.

Yarn For The 3/4 Sleeve Crochet Sweater


To crochet this long sleeve top or short sleeve sweater you are going to need 2 colors of yarn. The main color is a variegated colorway, while the second color is a solid colored yarn.

The suggested yarn is Hobbii – Winter Glow. It’s a 4 medium yarn and a wool & acrylic blend. But you can also easily swap for other yarns in the same yarn weight.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Crochet Pattern Notes


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger. Learn more about testing gauge.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.
  • This pattern is written for 9 sizes, where the different sizes is given in parenthesis like this: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL. If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin to make the pattern easier to follow. Size adjustments are added under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.

Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
