Oversized Crochet Sweater

March 14, 2022



Hello blog friends.  I set a crochet project goal to make a sweater.  This is the first time crocheting a sweater and I found a free simple crochet pattern on Pinterest.  I made an oversized sweater using this pattern


I chose one color of yarn since it's the first time I've crocheted a sweater.  I tried to buy dark-colored yarn but the bins were empty at Michaels.  I chose this taupe-colored yarn thinking this will go with everything.  I can wear this sweater with black pants or jeans. 

I'm happy I challenged myself and crocheted a sweater.  I think the sweater came out pretty good for my first crocheted sweater.


This is what the sweater looks like on me.



 Oversized Color Block Crochet Sweater Details:


YARN:  7 Skeins of yarn - Charisma Loops & Threads - Color Taupe 
CROCHET HOOK:  L/8.0 mm hook
PATTERN:  Here
NOTE:  Changes to the pattern:  The pattern called for 5 skeins of yarn but I had to use 7 skeins of yarn to complete this sweater.  I used one color of yarn to make this sweater.  I had to make changes to the pattern to fit me better.  The size small was too big for me, so I adjusted the pattern smaller.

Adjustment:
Front:  Chain 50 
Row 1 = dc in 3rd ch from hook - 48 dc
Row 2 = ch 2 - turn - dc in ea. st. across = 48
Back:  Chain 50
Row 1 = dc in 3rd ch from hook - 48 dc
Row 2 = ch 2 - turn - dc in ea. st. across = 48
To sew the sweater together I followed the measurements for a size small.

  20. Choosing a neutral color means you can pair it with more blouses and pants. I always look for solids as part of my clothing. Your sweater turned out lovely - good job!
    Thanks for sharing at the FWF party!
