Mod Christmas Sweater Crochet Pattern

December 1, 2021

This Mod Christmas Sweater Crochet Pattern is a raglan style sweater with cute striped sleeves. I went with some Christmas colors for my sleeves, but they can be made in any color combination. The best part is there is no sewing. NONE. There are quite a bit of ends due to the stripes, but still… no sewing!

· written in US terms

· ch 2 does not count as stitch

· This sweater is raglan style and made top-down in turned rounds.

· I used 2 skeins for each of the sleeve stripe colors (even though only one of each color is needed) so I didn’t have to fasten off the color. OR separate the stripe color into 2 balls of yarn, one for each sleeve. OR there are Mini Skeins available. I had 1 working on each sleeve at the same time when working on the first section (before the split for sleeves). 3 skeins of the main color are needed before the split for the sleeves.

· The cream is color A, light red is B, dark red is C, light green is D, dark green is E (note: the exact colors used in the sample are not available)

· For the sleeves each color is working for 2 rounds. The color pattern is: B, C, B, A, D, E, D, A

· NOTE: photos are from an earlier version of the pattern but the methods are the same

Gauge:  13 dc x 8 rows = 4” x 4”

Sizes:

(S, M, L) (XL, 2X, 3X) – The pattern is written in these sizes consecutively. Example, when the pattern gives the end of row count ((66, 74, 82) (90, 98, 106) dc) the 66 is for S, 74 is M, 82 is L, 90 is XL, 98 is 2X, 106 is 3X.

This sweater is very close fitting with negative ease.

Approx Finished Size:
Bust: S (30”) M (34”) L (38”) XL (42”) 2X (46”) 3X (50”)
Length: S (19”) M (21”) L (23”) XL (25”) 2X (27”) 3X (29”)
Armhole: S (6.5”) M (7.5”) L (8.5”) XL (9.5”) 2X (10.5”) 3X (11.5”)
Sleeve Length: S (23”) M (24”) L (25”) Xl (26”) 2X (27”) 3X (28”)

  1. That’s so cute. I love the neckline. I was thinking you did the neckline last, and was surprised to see that’s where you started. I think this will be a fun pattern to work. I’m already thinking pink stripes for Valentines Day and greens for St Patty’s Day. Thanks again for all your hard work in getting new patterns out to us, that are so easy to follow!!!
