This monochrome tie crochet sweater is classy, cute, and something you need to have in your closet. The extra tie detail on the sleeve gives it a unique touch to make it all your own – besides the fact that you made it all on your own. On top of that, it's a straightforward and easy crochet pattern using mostly double crochet stitches for the entire pattern.
Wear it out on the town or to your dinner date. You can dress it up or down, so you can have an excuse to wear it anywhere. It’s also super fun to make, and you can choose your two favorite colors when working with it. Add the ties in a complementary color, make them pop with a wildcard hue, or choose a matching yarn to the one that you’ve already used or the stripes.
Get started now and have a cute crochet sweater to wear for tonight, because this top crochets up in no time flat. Add a piece to your closet that’s as one-of-a-kind as you are when you opt to make your own.
We can’t stop wearing this cozy crochet sweater, and we know you won’t be able to, either. It’s so easy to throw on that you’ll find yourself buying pants just to match with it.
