The Reed Raglan Sweater is a men’s crochet sweater that is worked from the top down with a raglan yoke. It uses just one main stitch and requires no sewing or seaming.
The sweater has 1-3″ of positive ease, making it great to wear alone or over a favorite collard shirt. The herringbone double crochet stitch gives it a lovely texture and the ribbing trim on the bottom, sleeves, and neckline create the perfect finish.
This crochet sweater looks great dressed up with a collared shirt underneath and some slacks, or dressed down and worn alone with shorts or jeans.
This pattern comes in men’s sizes small to 5X. It includes a size chart with both chest and shoulder measurements. The model pictured is wearing a size Large. Please check out my guide to crocheting men’s garments for more details on how to choose the right size.
For this project I used Brava Sport from WeCrochet. Brava Sport is 100% premium acrylic yarn. It comes in a large variety of colors and can be machine washed and dried. For my sample I used the colorway Almond.
It is soft, and durable, and really easy to work with. I’ve used it for many garments and sweaters!
The following yarns will make a great substitution for this project:
Wool of the Andes Sport – 100% Peruvian Highland Wool
Heatherly Sport – 80% acrylic, 20% merino wool
Mary Maxim Baby’s Best Yarn – 80% acrylic, 20% nylon
Premier Yarns Cotton Fair – 52% cotton, 48% acrylic
