This exquisite, striped crochet sweater is crafted in 2 separate panels that are sewn together with a well-defined neckline. For this beginner friendly pattern, I have used US terms, a 5mm crochet hook and weight 4 yarn. However, this pattern may be created using any hook and yarn you have in your stash, as long as you achieve the proper gauge.

Adjustable Sizing

Despite its appearance of intricacy, this pattern is beginner-friendly, comprising a straightforward repetition of essential stitches—single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. I have included instructions from size small to XXL.

Great For Any Occasion

This elegant crochet sweater pattern works up quickly and would look delightful in a spectrum of colorways. The selected stitch not only augments the design’s visual allure but also assures exceptional warmth. Effortlessly pair it with your favored jeans or a graceful skirt to create an ensemble that embodies both style and comfort.
