AD-FREE PDF AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST!

***UPDATE: I remade this sweater with an acrylic yarn and I believe it holds up a lot better than the scarfie yarn. It also washes better too.

If are new to YarnHookNeedles and you are a knitter, then you will want to check out the simple knit sweater HERE

For those of you who are just crocheters then you will love how simple, easy this pattern is to create and customize! One of my goals when designing is to create luxury patterns which can EASILY be customized even if you have never made garments before.

At the beginning of the summer, I started down the garment design path with my TWIGGY TUNIC PATTERN (HERE)

I then went on to create:

THE LIBERTY CROP TOP

THE ADELINE TOP

As you can tell, simplicity in luxury is my game and I absolutely love creating pieces like these for my readers! With that being said, let’s dive right into the simplest pullover sweater you’ll ever make!

CROCHET PATTERN:

R3 – 52 : repeat row 2 all the way across

***add or subtract as many rows as you would like to make the sleeves the length you desire. Make sure to add the same number to both panels.

SEAMING TOGETHER:

HEAD HOLE: Lay both panels down with right sides together. Starting from the shoulder, you will sew the top closed as many inches as you need to create your first “shoulder” area. Do this on both sides. Be sure to try it on making sure you can easily get your head in and out BEFORE you weave in your ends.

ATTACHING THE TOP OF THE SLEEVES: Lay the sewn together panels out. Then, take one of your sleeves and line up the top of the sleeve with your shoulder seam. You want the sleeve to be as centered with the shoulder seam as possible.

Sew both of your sleeves on.

SEAMING UP THE SIDES: You will now fold your garment as though it is inside out. Starting from the cuff of the sleeve you will sew all the way down to the waistband.

Weave in all of your ends, turn right side out and wear!

See, that was easy right? Now you can proudly wear your very own handmade sweater with pride! I would LOVE to see all of your finished pieces so if you want, tag me on social media using @yarnhookneedles along with the tag #yhnfashion
