20+ Free Crochet Sweater Patterns for Adults and Kids!

I’ve been living in sweaters for the last week, and it really does feel like sweater weather is settling in (you never know in Chicago!). Making sweaters always seemed so difficult to me, but after some recent success, I think I’m ready for me. So now that I’m feeling way more confident about sweaters, I hit Pinterest and found some amazing FREE crochet sweater patterns that I can’t wait to try. I’ve rounded them all up in this post to make it easier for you guys to find the right crochet sweater pattern for whatever your style and skill level. Let’s get into it!

I really struggle d with making sweaters at first. It was always so difficult for me to get the shaping right and make sure it actually fit. So I tried a paid kit from Craftsy that looked super simple and helped me make a sweater with almost no shaping involved. It was the Sporty One Piece Cardigan kit and I did a whole review on it if you’re interested in trying it out. The kit comes with all the yarn you need, the pattern and you also contact Craftsy’s support if you need more help.

I have seriously been thinking about trying to do something like this. I know the basics of crochet but just making blankets is boring. I would love being able to make something like these though!

Thanks for sharing. I am scheduling to post on Pinterest.

Thanks, Julie! It's easier to start with children's ones if it seems daunting. They have less shaping and use up less yarn!
