I’ve been living in sweaters for the last week, and it really does feel like sweater weather is settling in. Making sweaters always seemed so difficult to me, but after some recent success, I think I’m ready to make one for myself. 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 struggled with making sweaters at first. It was always so difficult for me to get the shaping right and make sure it actually fits. 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 included the ones I loved most but be sure to check out the bloggers who published them for more. They usually have a few different ones! Kids’ sweaters are also a great place to start if you struggle with making sweaters or shaping because they don’t involve much!
