THE YARN


To crochet this sweater I used a 100 % cotton yarn. You could essentially use any cotton yarn that’s marked 3 or dk. 

I’ve listed multiple options further down in the patterns section.

THE PERFECT EASY SWEATER CROCHET PATTERN


This sweater crochet pattern is perfect for warm weather, since it’s using cotton yarn. However, if you find this crochet pattern during fall or winter, don’t look away. Make it in your favorite wool yarn. 

If you haven’t made a sweater before, this is as easy as it gets. Two squares as the front and back, then easy increases on the sleeves.

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.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • 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!
  • 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 (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).

 

  • 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 “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.

 

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:

SIZE NOTES:

  • Take measurements to find the size that fits the best.

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS:

Body: 

  • For all sizes: Best place to adjust length by adding or reducing rows are before you make the ribbing.
  • For all sizes: Adjust width by adding/reducing stitches by 2 at a time or go up/down one size. 

 

Sleeves:

  • For all sizes: Best place to adjust length by adding or reducing rows are at the end. 
  • For all sizes: Skip increase to make the arm narrower. 
  • For all sizes: Increase more frequently to make the arm wider.

Written description: *Draw up a loop from next stitch, yo, draw up a loop from same st, yo, pull yarn through 4 loops on hook, ch 1, sk 1 st*, repeat from *to*.

 

*Start each row with sk 1, because the “bubble” will always be placed in a “bubble” when crocheting in rows.
