Cowl Sweater Vest Crochet Pattern

February 19, 2018

I have one more cozy pattern to share with you until I go full on spring mode… The Cowl Sweater Vest Crochet Pattern is comfy, cozy, and cute!

There is so much I love about this piece. The textured lemon peel stitch, the striped neutrals, the bulky yarn, the easy construction… I could go on and on! For the stitch I used the Lemon Peel stitch. It’s alternating dc and sc, then in the following row, you work a sc in each dc and a dc in each sc. That’s what creates the pretty design!

I used my favorite bulky yarn (again!), Loops & Threads in Charisma. If it seems like I use this yarn a lot, it’s because I do. You just can’t beat the price for this soft and squishy yarn. There are a lot of great color choices, too. This sweater would be fun with bright colors!

CONSTRUCTION

Sew the shoulders closed, leaving a space in the middle for the neck. I used a whip stitch and sewed about 9 stitches across on both sides (you can make the collar any width you like)

Sew the sides together. I used a whip stitch and sewed about 17 rows from the top and down. (again, the armholes can be any width you like)

Weave in all your ends.

  1. I didn’t have as much gray as I thought I did so I did rows 1-17 in the gray and then folded it in half, sewed the side up (leaving the bottom open) and made my daughter a super cute skirt!
