Toasty Sweaters for Chillin' Free Crochet Patterns

*This post may contain affiliate links.


I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s often difficult to produce garments that combine a modern fashion, use a classic technique and are easy enough for beginners to take on with a reasonable hope of success. These two hoodie patterns are great examples of just that. They both use conventional stitches to make very modern cas’ sweater and are quite easy and quick to work up. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post. 

Sherpa Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

Here is a sweater that’s got the best of the three features. It makes use of the Tunisian stitch to bypass the difficulty of working with fluffy yarn in order to produce a material that looks like solar fleece, and not a crocheted cardigan. Combined with the springy cuffs, it’s a great casual hoodie equally at home in front of the fireplace, or just strolling around town. Try this wonderful project to while away the post-Christmas blues.

Cozy Cardigan Shrug in 18 Sizes Free Crochet Pattern

The cozy cardigan shrug is a slightly different take on the same idea. It’s a more classically crocheted sweater with a very modern cut and a super attractive ridged texture, that not only looks good but is very pleasant to the touch. There is no reason for you not to take on both these projects, so that you’ll have cardis for any occasion or mood!
