The Children’s Upper Eastside sweater is a pullover style sweater that is both classy and simple! Dress it up or down, you could go either way! It’s also gender neutral and looks adorable on both boys and girls!
This crochet pattern is written with instructions for infant and children’s sizes 0-3 months through size 10. It is rated Easy in difficulty and uses just a few stitches. Instructions for how to create the striping are in the pattern, but this sweater could also be made in all one color or with more stripes. This sweater is versatile and easy to adjust. You will work from the bottom up with just a bit of seaming at the shoulders. Then sleeves and trim will be added at the end.
You will need a worsted weight (#4) yarn for this project. For my sample Children’s Upper Eastside Sweater I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love this Yarn. This yarn is a soft and cozy acrylic, making it great for winter sweaters! There are so many color options for this yarn as well! It is definitely one of my favorite worsted weight acrylic yarns!
There is also a men’s version of the Upper Eastside Sweater. It would make a great matching set for Daddy and son or daughter!
