Looking for a crochet sweater pattern for a sweet girl in your life? A crochet sweater pattern that perhaps is made in one piece, has simple enough instructions and results in a cozy sweater that also has lots of style? Oh and don't forget can be made relatively quickly! Look no further, I found a great pattern that you can crochet as is, or adapt, as I did for a slightly different look.
And while I used the yarn that is specified, namely Homespun, since I happen to have a lot of it to use up in my stash (yippee, now I have only a few more skeins to use up, and I actually made two of these sweaters!) you can certainly use the yarn of your choice.
You can find the pattern here.
Note: I used a 6mm crochet hook and Homespun yarn, but went with the directions for the 9-10 year old size, as that resulted in the right size for my 12 year old average sized daughter, strangely enough.
Also, I increased the number of rows between the bottom of the sweater and the armpit to make a sweater that rather than being a cropped style hits the top of the thigh or somewhere quite a bit lower than the specifications in the pattern.
