Crochet Striped V - Neck Sweater Pattern XS - 3XL


Hi Everyone!πŸ˜‰
Today I am really excited to share with you my very first crochet sweater design. It's the lightweight Striped V - Neck Sweater with 3/4 sleeves. It also has an eye catching scallop edging around sleeve cuffs and hemline.
I used one of my absolute favorites cotton and premium acrylic blend DK weigt yarn Nako Calico in 2 colors - coral red (Red Sea Bream) and off white (Ecru).
The pattern uses basic crochet stitches and works up rather quickly.

Hope you enjoy!
Happy Crocheting! 😊

Pattern Notes:

  • The sweater is worked in 4 pieces - 2 body panels from the bottom up and 2 sleeve panels from the top down. All panels are sewn together at the end before working the hemline and sleeve cuff edging.

  • The pattern is worked in both rows (body panels and sleeves) and rounds (the hemline and sleeve edging).

  • Ch3 at the beginning of the row counts as a double crochet stitch.

  • The last double crochet stitch goes into the top of turning ch3.

  • Ch2 at the beginning of the row doesn't count as a stitch.

  • Ch1 at the beginning of the round doesn't count as a stitch.

  • The sweater is classic fit with some positive ease (approximately 5cm (2'') more than your actual bus measurment).

  • Pattern includes 7 sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL).
