Why Make A Crochet Sweater Pattern? 

There are a number of reasons why anyone would make a crochet sweater, the first of which is that it’s a great way to challenge your skills. Whether you’re a beginner or a long-time crocheter, a crochet sweater involves making use of your knowledge of basic stitches, as well as the combination of more advanced techniques such as increases, decreases and seaming, that’ll only help you grow and enhance your craft.

By the way if you need help with any of the basics of crochet, from yarn choice to basic stitches, shaping and finishing your projects and beyond, our Crochet Fundamentals masterclass will teach you all you need to know to crochet sweaters – and anything else – with confidence.

Crocheting a sweater also makes for a great winter project where you can just stay snuggled up on the couch with a podcast and your yarn! You can make a cozy sweater for yourself to add to your closet, or you can make a few for friends and family.

Speaking of which, crocheted sweaters are amazing presents to give for the holidays. Nothing can show how much love and patience you have for someone like making them a handmade gift that fits them perfectly! 

Types of Crochet Sweater Construction

Now that you’ve decided to make your own crochet sweater, it’s time to really get into the details of how you’re going to make the sweater. Before you begin, you have to consider your own skill set and what you’re comfortable working with as a crocheter. That’s because there are several ways to construct a crochet sweater and planning ahead will make the sweater-making process a whole lot easier!

Listed below are the numerous types of crochet sweater construction to help you figure out which one fits your skills and the way you’d like to work best. 

Flat in Two Pieces

This type of sweater is worked in two pieces: the back and the front, with the sleeves worked as you go. Each piece of the sweater is worked along with half of the sleeve stitches. The two pieces will be seamed together and you’re done!

The downside to this method of construction is that you’ll end up with long side seams and you can’t really shape out the shoulders and arms that much.

Seamless

As the name suggests, this type of sweater construction is worked in the round for a seamless crochet sweater. Seamless sweaters can be worked from the top down or the bottom up, increasing or decreasing as needed to shape the sweater for different parts of the body. 

The sleeves can be worked separately and sewn on or you can work around the armhole made when you worked the body and crochet the sleeves in the round as well for minimal finishing. 

Top-Down

This kind of sweater is worked from the yoke or the collar of the sweater down to the bottom hem, either in flat pieces or seamlessly in the round. 

Bottom Up

On the flip side, this method of sweater construction is worked from the bottom of the hem up toward the collar. The body and the sleeves are worked separately until you reach the part where the armholes would go, and then join them together.

Flat with Seams

This type of crochet sweater is worked in flat pieces: the front, the back, and the two sleeves. After you’ve completed all the pieces, you seam the two body pieces together at the shoulder, and then attach the sleeves on each side. 

The sides are them seamed from the cuff of the sleeve all the way to the bottom hem. This method is great for an on-the-go project because you’re working with smaller pieces at any time. 

Cuff to Cuff

This method of sweater construction is usually worked seamlessly in the round from the edge of one cuff to the other cuff. They can also be worked flat in two pieces, with the front and back each having half of the arm stitches. 

Crochet projects made this way are looser and don’t have too much shaping but if you work it in the round, not having to seam anything together is a huge plus!

Of course, there is also the issue of whether you want to make a pullover versus a cardigan. Check out our post all about crochet cardigan patterns here.

Types of Crochet Sweater Sleeve Construction

The method of construction for your crochet sweater is only one consideration as you are picking a pattern to stitch. 

You can make the same body piece half a dozen times, but a different sleeve type for each one will create an entirely different crochet sweater. It all comes down to the form and shape you want to have in your final product, as well as your own personal style.

You can get a better idea of the different crochet sweater sleeves from the list below.

Raglan

Baseball tees are also called raglan tees not because of the material used, but because of their unique sleeve style.

Raglan sweaters and shirts have distinctive diagonal lines running down from the neckline to shape the sleeves. These sweaters have a classic, sporty look and a nice fit. They are often worked from the top down, with regular shaping at the raglan lines. 

Cap

Cap sleeves are more common in crochet tops than sweaters because of how short they are. They’re constructed by extending out of the shoulder by a few inches and then tapering down into the underarm. 

This fitted form of sleeve is very flattering and can be joined to the bodice or as an attached sleeve.

Drop 

Drop sleeve sweaters are the easiest to make because the front and back panels don’t have any shaping. There is no shaping for the armholes; the sleeves are just stitched to the top of the front and back of the sweater.

An alternative to the drop shoulder is known as the modified drop shoulder, where a few stitches are removed from the body where the sleeves will attach. This way there is less fabric under your arm, which can make the sweater more comfortable.

Set In

Set-in sleeves involve the most shaping in both the sleeves and the body. The set-in sleeves are sewn into the body of the sweater like puzzle pieces. This makes it possible for the sweater to fit more closely to the body without a lot of extra fabric under the arms. 

They’re a little more complicated to stitch but the result is well worth it. 

Dolman

Also called “batwing” or “flutter sleeves, this type of sleeve construction is common in crochet sweaters that are made from cuff to cuff. Each cuff is fitted on the wrist and becomes looser and wider as it reaches the body piece. 

These sleeves are often as wide as the sweater is long. Dolman sleeves create wide armholes that give the garment a touch of elegance while still being extremely comfortable.

Kimono

While dolman sleeves taper at the wrist and widen near the bodice, kimono sleeves have a wide armhole and cuff. From where they’re attached at the shoulder, the sleeves remain wide and long as they reach the wrist. 

The sleeves are inspired by traditional Japanese kimonos and are very comfortable as a crochet sweater or as a robe.

How to Correctly Measure and Size a Crochet Sweater

Unlike knitted sweaters, crocheted sweaters often have more structure to them and use up quite a bit more yarn. With that in mind, you need to make sure that you’re sizing and measuring your sweater correctly to avoid an ill-fitting or bulky-looking sweater at the end. Not to mention that if you’re working on a seamless sweater, a mistake in sizing could mean undoing hours of hard work just to begin again.

But how do you take your own (or someone you want to stitch for) measurements for a sweater? Let’s take a look!

How to Measure

Taking accurate measurements of yourself can be difficult, but keeping them in mind can make a whole world of difference in how your crochet sweater will sit on your body. Enlist the help of a friend or a family member to take your (or each other’s) measurements for better accuracy! 

If you already have a crocheted sweater, you like that fits the way you want the sweater you’re stitching to fit, you can also measure the garment and make sure the measurements of the sweater you want to crochet will correspond to that. 

Below are some of the most common sweater measurements you can take note of before you begin a project. When measuring, it’s also important to keep your measuring tape snug but not too tight. It’s fine to measure in a light T-shirt and/or a bra.

  1. Chest/Bust: Measure around the fullest part of the bust with the tape parallel to the floor.
  1. Neck: Measure around the largest part of the neck. For a round or wider neckline, you can add a few inches for allowance, but it’s recommended not to exceed 10” more than the actual neck measurement.
  1. Raglan: For raglan sleeves, measure diagonally from where the neckline would be to where the side seam at the underarm would be.
  1. Armhole depth: Measure from the outside edge of the shoulder down to the armpit, or lower depending on how wide you want the sleeves to be.
  1. Body length: Measure from the armpit to the desired length you want for your sweater.
  1. Natural waist: Measure around at the level of your navel.
  1. Back waist length: Measure from the base of the neck to the natural waist.
  1. Cross back: Measure from shoulder to shoulder.
  1. Hip: Measure around the widest point of the lower hip.
  1. Sleeve length: Measure from the armpit to the cuff with the arm slightly bent.
  1. Center back neck to cuff: Measure from the base of the neck across the shoulder and elbow to the wrist with the arm slightly bent.
  1. Upper arm: Measure around the widest section of the upper arm.
  1. Wrist: Measure loosely around the wrist.
  1. Elbow: Measure around the elbow with the arm slightly bent.

You probably won’t need all of these measurements for every sweater you’ll crochet, but having them on hand means you can use them whenever you do. You can also keep note of the measurements of family and friends whenever you want to crochet them a gift.

Deciding What Size to Use

One of the keys to successfully crocheting a sweater is deciding what size will fit you. Remember that the measurements you’ve taken are based on your body, not the actual size of the garment.

The quickest and easiest way to figure out the correct size for you is by looking at the bust measurement in the pattern. As previously mentioned, the bust measurement is measured around the fullest part of the bust. This is also referred to as the chest measurement for men, kids, and babies.

A kid’s sweater pattern might be stated as:

Chest: 23 (25,27) inches

This means that the smallest size for this garment would be 23 inches around the chest, with the next sizes being 25 and 27 inches, respectively.

If the pattern states the width of the chest, like “19 inches wide at chest,” for example, all you have to do is multiply this by 2 in order to calculate the circumference or the total measurement of the chest/bust. So a 19” wide chest would be a 38” chest circumference.

Negative & Positive Ease

Now let’s talk about ease! At its most basic definition, ease refers to how closely the sweater conforms to your body measurements.

A classic fitting sweater would include 2-4 inches of ease, which is a few inches added to the body measurement.

Zero ease would mean that your garment is completely body skimming and is the exact same size as your body.

If you want a loose fit or even an oversized sweater, you would want to add some more positive ease. An oversized crochet sweater would have a generous positive ease with upwards of 6” added to the actual body measurement.

A negative ease, on the other hand, refers to a tighter fit which is smaller than your actual body measurement. Alongside a stretchy stitch or an elastic yarn, a negative ease of around 2-4” allows the garment to hug your body better.

Garment Size Calculator for Crocheters

Once you’ve noted how much ease you want in your garment, you can figure out the approximate number of stitches you’ll need for whichever size of garment you want to make.

You can do this with the help of a garment size calculator like this one from Joy of Motion Crochet.

You’ll need to know and input:

  • The kind of fitting (how much ease you want)
  • The type of measurement you want (cm or in)
  • The number of stitches and rows in and the measurements of your gauge swatch

After the calculation, you’ll receive suggestions for the number of stitches in sizes XS-5XL for the bust, waist, armhole, etc. If you want to design your own sweater in a particular stitch pattern, this will help you know the number of stitches you need.

Help with Crochet Sweater Sizing

If you’re new to designing sweaters, learning about sizing can feel like an uphill battle. That doesn’t mean that you should settle for an ill-fitting garment, however! The crochet community has always been incredibly open and helpful with novice crocheters and there’s nothing that you can’t learn about crochet online.

One great resource is the Craft Yarn Council’s website, where you can find standard body measurements for babies, children, women, and men. This is a great reference for any sample size clothing you want to make or for when you don’t know the exact measurements of a client, but know that they’re a medium.

Supplies Needed to Crochet a Sweater

The good news is that you don’t need a lot of supplies to crochet a sweater. Here’s a quick rundown of the basics.

Choosing the Perfect Yarn to Crochet a Sweater

The first thing to consider when choosing the perfect yarn for your sweater is the weight you want to use. This will depend on what season you want to wear the sweater in or how you want to style in. Let’s use Lion Brand’s enormous collection of yarn as an example.

A lighter DK yarn like 24/7 Cotton makes for a more versatile and breathable sweater that you can use in early fall or paired with a light jacket later on. Because it’s cotton, it’s a great choice for summer sweaters and tops.

However, sweaters are commonly made with a medium, 4, or worsted weight yarn such as Touch of Alpaca which has a buttery texture that’s warmer and softer than sheep’s wool and also hypoallergenic!

If you want a chunkier sweater for the cooler months, Feels Like Bliss is a wonderful weight 5 (aka bulky) yarn that should work for you! Like its name suggests, it feels blissfully soft and has a hollow core to keep it lightweight and airy.

The good news is, if you’re stitching from a pattern, it will tell you what kind of yarn (weight as well as brand/variety) was used so you can choose to use the same yarn if it is still in production or you can choose a yarn of the same weight and fiber content to ensure a similar result. 

How Many Skeins of Yarn Do You Need to Crochet a Sweater?

Different types and sizes of sweaters need varying amounts of yarn. The amount of yarn used will depend on the style of the sweater (short or long sleeved, cropped or standard length, pullover or cardigan), the stitch pattern used and the size of the garment itself. 

In general, the lighter weight the yarn is, the more yarn you will need. According to Lion Brand Yarn, a sweater worked in worsted weight yarn will take between 1,125 and 1,625 yards, whereas one worked in a bulky weight yarn would need from 950 to 1,125 yards. 

Depending on the size of your yarn ball, that means that you’d need anywhere from 4-11 balls or skeins of yarn for one sweater. Again, your pattern will tell you how many balls or how much yardage you need for the sweater and size you are planning to make. 

Crochet Hooks for Crocheting a Sweater

Now, let’s talk about the different crochet hooks you might use for a sweater. Since crochet sweaters are large garments, it could mean hours and hours of repetitive crocheting (not to mention holding the weight of your project as it grows), which isn’t great for your hands and wrists. 

The best hook you could use is the one you feel most comfortable holding, so ergonomic crochet hooks are usually the first things that come to mind.

Furls has some of the most beautiful streamlined crochet hooks we’ve ever seen. Their Streamline Resin Galaxy collection is a feast for the eyes, including their bestselling Andromeda hook!

Furls hooks are on the expensive side, but Knit Picks has a variety of hooks for stitchers on a budget, such as Clover’s Armour Crochet Hook Set that are also ergonomic and brightly colored so you can easily tell which size you’re using.

As long as the crochet hook size matches the yarn you’re using, you are getting the correct gauge for your project, and you’re comfortable as you are stitching, then that’s really all that matters in terms of the perfect crochet hook!

Notions and Tools Needed

Once you’ve got your yarn and hook, you also need to consider other tools you’ll be using throughout the sweater-making process. Some of the most common essential notions and tools are listed below:

These are all must-haves, especially when undertaking a big project like a crochet sweater!

Blocking Tools

What is Blocking?

Blocking is a technique used to finish crochet and knit items that helps to relax the stitches and allows you to smooth and (to some extent) resize the project. If you want all your granny squares to be the same size before you sew them into a sweater, blocking is what gets you there. 

Sweaters, shawls and other crochet projects benefit from blocking, too, because it just makes your project look done. 

How Do You Block?

There are a few different ways you can block, such as:

  1. Steam blocking: As the name suggests, the fabric is relaxed by pushing steam through the fabric with a garment steamer or an iron. (Note: do not touch the iron to the sweater if you use this method, especially with acrylic yarns as they can melt.)
  2. Spray blocking: This method involves pinning the project to the desired size, then gently dampening it with water from a spray bottle. Once the garment air dries, it will retain the form it’s been pinned in.
  3. Wet blocking: wet blocking involves completely submerging the garment in lukewarm water, letting it soak for a while, gently removing excess water, and then pinning it to the required shape/size and allowing it to dry. 

What Tools Do I Need to Block?

It’s possible to use regular sewing straight pins when blocking (though rust-proof pins are ideal), but it’s nice to have the right tools to do the job right. Here are a few blocking tools you’ll need to get those straight edges on your projects:

  • T-pins: Rust-proof, and made especially for blocking, T-pins will hold your fabric in place when you’re using wet or spray blocking.
  • Knit blockers: Knit blockers can of course be used on crochet projects as well, and they’re like having a row of pins that are attached to each other. They’re made of pins with the dull end enclosed in a plastic casing so you can block out larger areas at a time.
  • Lace blocking wires: These long, flexible wires give your finished garment pieces shape and consistency. they’re great for blocking out points in lace or just long edges of any project.
  • Wool wash: This can be any mild detergent or soap used in the blocking process. Wool washes can usually be used without rinsing, but you can also use baby shampoo for a budget-friendly option.
  • Blocking mats: These foam mats can be interconnected to create a larger space for blocking. You can also buy fold-up mats that open out to a larger area and have grid marks to help you square off projects. 
  • Spray bottle
  • Ruler, tape measure or yard stick
  • Wash basin or bucket (or use your sink)
  • Bath towel
  • Iron or garment steamer (optional)

Tips for Crocheting Sweaters

Always Make a Gauge Swatch Before You Start Crocheting a Sweater

A gauge swatch is every crocheter’s best friend when following a new pattern. Even if they used the exact same yarn and hook, no two crocheters are guaranteed to end up with the exact same garment. The difference might come down to the tension you use as you crochet.

But for those confused and asking, what is gauge?

We’ve got you covered. Gauge in crochet is basically the measurement of how many stitches and rows you can work in four inches using the stitch you’ll be working with for your chosen pattern, using the called-for yarn weight and hook size. 

A gauge swatch is what you’ll be making to test out the gauge, but you’ll want it to be slightly bigger than what the pattern calls for (so 5 or 6 inches instead of 4). This is recommended because the gauge you’ll use during the first rows and stitches won’t be the same as when you’re further along the project. 

So, if a pattern calls for gauge of, let’s say, 16 stitches & 16 rows in 10 cm (or 4 inches), you would do 20 stitches & 20 rows to test it out. The gauge average will be better reflected with a bigger swatch.

Make Sure You Choose the Best Yarn for Your Crochet Sweater Project

The easiest choice you can make is the same yarn that the pattern calls for. However, some projects call for a more expensive kind of yarn, or even a yarn that you don’t like the texture of or that isn’t available where you live. Older patterns might be made with yarn that’s discontinued. 

Other than the weight of the yarn, another thing to consider is the color of the yarn. Bright and fun colors make for a sweater that’s sure to stand out in a crowd. But if nothing in your wardrobe matches it, it’ll end up forgotten in the back of your closet.

You also want to think about the texture of the yarn. Itchy sweaters aren’t going to be loved as much as a soft buttery-feeling one. You can even test how a skein of yarn will feel before buying it by touching it to your cheek or the inside of your wrist. 

The last thing you want to take into consideration is how the yarn needs to be cared for. If your lifestyle doesn’t allow for hand-washing sweaters, make sure you choose an easy-care yarn that can be machine washed. 

Ultimately, the best yarn for any crochet project is the yarn that you feel the best in in every possible way.

Measure Your Crochet Sweater As You Go

If you’ve been crocheting long enough, you might have noticed that a crocheted piece tends to expand as you add more rows to it. It always helps to continue measuring the garment as you go along. This saves you the annoying moment of trying on a completed crochet sweater only to find that it’s the wrong size.

Modify Your Crochet Sweater For a Perfect Fit

All bodies are beautiful and deserve to fit perfectly into a cozy handmade crochet sweater! If the crochet sweater pattern you’re following isn’t in your exact fit, there are ways you can modify it to make it work for you:

Too Long or Too Short

One of the issues you might come across with sizing is the length of the garment. This is super easy to fix and won’t take up too much time at all! Just add or omit rows, especially if you’re working from the top-down. If you’re working bottom-up or in pieces, your gauge swatch will be your best friend. Use it to determine how many rows you are working on per inch or 4 inches so you can tell how many rows to add or subtract for your desired length. 

If there is shaping in the garment you can also adjust where you’ll be making your decreases or increases as needed to ensure a good fit. 

Additional Shaping for the Bust and Hip

If you find that your bust or hips need a little more room and movement, you can fix that up with a few increases or decreases in the right places. For increases around the bust, make sure that the increases are placed on the front panel or the front part of your garment to avoid looking frumpy.

Shaping Motifs

If your crochet sweater is made of crochet motifs, it can be harder to customize, but here playing with gauge swatches may help. Going up or down a hook size might change your gauge just enough to make a part of the garment bigger or smaller where you need it to be. 

How to Work with Sized Patterns

Garment patterns are usually written in multiple sizes from the smallest to the largest, with all except the smallest size in parentheses. For example, if a pattern says to chain 20 (24, 26, 28) that means for the smallest size you would chain 20, and for the largest 28.

Once you decide to use a certain size, highlight that section of the pattern so that you don’t mix it up for the other sizes. 

It’s also important to note that sometimes there are whole sections of the pattern instructions dedicated to a specific size. If it isn’t in your size, keep looking until you find where your size is listed or a section that’s for ALL sizes.

Crochet Sweater Patterns FAQs

Are Sweaters Easy to Crochet?

Yes, they are! Crochet sweaters may appear complicated, but if you break them down into different parts, they aren’t so different from crocheting a rectangle (or a slightly shaped rectangle) four times. You need a front panel, a back panel, and two sleeves. That’s not that hard now, is it?

How Long Does It Take to Crochet a Sweater for Beginners?

Honestly, it depends! The length of time you need to crochet a sweater varies depending on how simple or complex a pattern is, your experience level as a crocheter, how fast you crochet, how many hours in a day you spend crocheting, and of course the size of the entire garment. 

On average, crocheting a sweater can take up to a month working a little bit each day. 

The average crocheter might need upwards of 30 hours spaced out over a month to finish a project. But the consensus is that no matter how long it takes, crocheting a sweater is always worth it in the end!

Since they take a while to work up, basic stitches are usually the way to go for crochet sweaters. You can actually use any stitch pattern you like for a sweater, as long as the multiple of stitches works in the width that you need for your garment. 

That said, here are a few of the most popular options for crocheted sweaters.

  • Half-double crochet: It’s not as dense as single crochet, and isn’t as full of gaps as a double crochet, the HDC is one of the best options for crocheting a sweater in terms of looks and rhythm.
  • Moss stitch: The single crochet, chain, and skip pattern of the moss stitch not only makes it super fun to work with, it’s also dense enough to not be too revealing, but still airy enough to be comfortable.
  • Lemon peel stitch: Lemon peel stitch is a fun combination of single and double crochet stitches that is easy for beginners and those with more experience and gives your garments a fun texture.
  • Extended crochet stitches – This technique works for any of the basic stitches and allows you to create more height and a lighter fabric. You do this by adding an extra “YO, pull up one loop” after you insert your hook and pull up the first loop.

Of course, you can use any stitch pattern you want to make a sweater completely your own. Check out our Ultimate Crochet Stitch Library to learn 45 different stitches you can add to sweaters or any other project you like. 

How Do I Wash My Handmade Crochet Sweater?

How you wash crochet sweaters depends on how washable the yarn is. If your yarn says it’s machine washable, try washing your swatch first to see how it handles it. Sometimes projects will still stretch or twist out of shape, or colors may bleed, even if the yarn is said to be machine washable. 

If your yarn isn’t machine washable, don’t try it. Hand wash it gently and with wool wash or another mild detergent (not regular laundry soap you would use in your machine). It’s best to air dry crocheted clothes, as well (including those machine-washed), but avoid hanging them as this stretches out the garment.

How Do I Know How My Crochet Sweater Will Drape?

Drape refers to how a garment hangs on the body. Sometimes we want our projects to cling closer to the body, while other times we’ll want them to be boxier. Something that flows is considered to have good drape, which tends to make a project more comfortable than something where the fabric is stiffer.

A bulky yarn is typically going to make stiffer fabric than thinner yarn, and pairing the right size crochet hook with the right size yarn helps improve drape. Here’s another place where swatching helps: make swatches with the same yarn and stitch with several different hooks and see which you prefer!
