Everykid Crochet Sweater Pattern

October 28, 2017

The Everykid Sweater is written in sizes 2T – 5T and can be made for boys or girls! This sweater is basically the same as my EVERYGIRL CROCHET SWEATER pattern, just smaller 😉

Honestly, I used some leftover Caron Cakes that I had my stash foreverrrrrrr. I think they were sitting there just waiting to become this easy & cute sweater! So I can’t say exactly how much I used, but I’m guesstimating that I used a little over 1 cake for a sweater in size 3T.

I had some yarn leftover so I made this matching EASY RIBBED CROCHET BEANIE to go with it! I’m just going to pretend he’ll always let me make him cute, little matching sets that I can dress him up in.

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

Do not fasten off, now you will work across the long edge of the ribbing and begin working from the bottom up to make the sweater

Row 1: Ch 1, turn and sc across the top of the ribbed edge, one sc in each row (39 dc, (42 dc), [45 dc], {48 dc})

Repeat row 2 to row ~~

23 for 2T, 25 for 3T, 27 for 4T, 29 for 5T

Or until desired length

Leave a long end for sewing. Weave in the first end.

CONSTRUCTION

Lay both panels on top of each other with the long ends on opposite corners. Using stitch markers where the shoulders will be sewn across the top, leaving a hole for the head.

Using one long end and your yarn needle, whipstitch across the shoulder to the stitch marker. Fasten off, weave in the end. Do the same for the opposite shoulder.

Use a piece of yarn twice the length of the side and your yarn needle, whip stitch along the side, leaving a space at the top for an armhole (at this point I tried the sweater on my boy to see where I wanted the armholes, mine are about 8 rows from the top). Fasten off, weave in the ends. Repeat for the opposite side.

SLEEVES

Join yarn at the armhole,

Row 1: ch 1, sc evenly around, join to first sc with sl st

Row 2 – 8: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join for first dc with sl st

Row 9: ch 3, *dc in 4 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Row 10: ch 3, *dc in 3 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Row 11: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Repeat row 11 to ~~
Row 16 for 2T, row 17 for 3T, row 18 for 4T, row 19 for 5T

Or until desired length

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Repeat for other sleeve.

COLLAR

Join yarn in one corner of the collar,

ch 1, sc2tog (over the corner stitches – this is to round the corner a bit), sc in each stitch across collar to the opposite corner of the collar, sc2tog (over the corner stitches), sc in remaining stitches. Join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off, weave in the ends.
