The Michelle Sweater crochet pattern is a basic sweater crochet sweater with a beautiful stitch combo! It is worked in a very similar stitch combo of the Michelle Hat.
When planning for this design I knew I wanted to create a color block sweater with 4 colors. I wanted something basic and simple, so that the color blocking would be the real feature of the sweater.
I went with the cream, pinks, and browns simply because I thought they were a fun combo. A good mix of neutral, brights, and dark.
I decided to go with a variation of the same stitch combo as the Michelle Hat because I love the texture it creates and knew it would be great for a sweater!
This pattern comes in children’s sizes as well because I knew this would be a great crochet sweater for all ages!
The Michelle Sweater crochet pattern calls for DK (#3) weight yarn. I used Paintbox Yarns Simply DK for my sample sweater, pictured above.
This was my first time using this yarn for a project, and I must say, I’m hooked! No pun intended!
It is such a perfect DK acrylic. This yarn is so soft and cozy and feels so nice against my skin. It also has a lovely drape that gives this sweater such a gorgeous look.
The price is really great too, at just $3 a skein. One skein has 302 yards!
I already have plans for more designs and projects in this yarn!
