The Men’s Upper Eastside Sweater is a simple pullover crochet sweater that can be customized to look and fit how you prefer!

Pattern Inpsiration

I first created the children’s Upper Eastside Sweater and wanted to make an adult sized version. There are just not enough patterns out there for men and boys so I’ve worked on creating some that are simple and modern.

I decided to keep with the look of the stripes for the adult version, but it would look great in one solid color or a different variation of stripes as well.

I use the herringbone half double crochet stitch for both the children’s and the adult sized sweater. I just love this stitch for sweaters and garments because it doesn’t have any holes and creates an amazing texture!

This men’s crochet sweater is a great one for every day wear or a special occasion! It looks great with both jeans and nice slacks!

Pattern Details

This pattern uses worsted (#4) weight yarn. I used Hobby Lobby’s I love This Yarn for the sweater pictured above.

I like using this yarn for all sorts of things, including sweaters. It is soft and sturdy. It is made of 100% acrylic and can be machine washed and dried.

This men’s crochet sweater is made from the bottom up. It starts in the round and then is split into two panels worked in rows to create the armholes. The sleeves and trim are completed at the end.

This pattern is rated intermediate in pattern difficulty. You will need to know how to do the Herringbone Half Double crochet stitch. A basic knowledge of crocheting garments is also helpful, but not necessary.

The Men’s Upper Eastside Sweater crochet pattern comes in 4 sizes: Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.
