The Crossroads Sweater crochet pattern is a beautiful basic crochet sweater! With just a touch of cabling down the middle, I think you’ll enjoy how simple this sweater is!
I love cabled sweaters and knew I wanted to design one, but I don’t always have the patience for a lot of cable work. It slows me down too much!
So I found a balance with this simple cabled design that just lays right down the middle of the sweater.
I wanted to use very basic crochet stitches and create a top down crochet sweater pattern that would be easy to size.
I came up with this pullover style crochet sweater and I am very pleased with how it looks. I also loved the ribbed trim at the bottom of the sweater and the sleeves!
The Crossroads Sweater crochet pattern is rated intermediate in difficulty. You will need to know how to do basic crochet stitches, like single crochet and double crochet, as well as front post double and triple crochet.
Some knowledge on crocheting garments will be helpful as well, although not necessary.
The pattern comes with written instructions as well as a photo tutorials for the cable work.
This sweater is made with worsted (#4) weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn in the colorway Danali.
I love Heartland yarn because it is soft and sturdy, and comes in so many beautiful colors. Most of the colors have a beautiful heathered look to them. It is 100% acrylic and can be found in most yarn stores and online.
However, you can use any worsted weight (#4) yarn you would like.
This sweater has 2-3″ of positive ease. The pattern comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS to 3X.
It is a top down workup, with sleeves and trim added at the end. The sleeves have a slight decrease in them to give them a nice fitted look around the wrists.
