oversize crochet sweater easy for beginner use moss stitch

This easy knit look  crochet oversize sweater free  pattern with step by step full detail video tutorial come with size  from small to plus size 4x. As off October approaching, the winter month just around  the corner.

So I was thinking about making something with basic crochet stitch with a twist and the stitch called linen stitch which they made of just single crochet and chain combination.

Simple & stylish knit look sweater.

The crochet pattern construction is made from 2 identical rectangles and join them to create the shoulder then  crochet the long sleeves on to it.

The ribbed band is make separate and attach onto the sweater body.

They are easy to mix and match with any jean or tight pant or you could even wear this as it is like a sweater dress!

About the yarn for this knit look crochet sweater pattern.

Yarn that will work best for this knit look crochet sweater is acrylic 100% or wool blend yarn.

Yarn weight you guy can pick ether 4 medium weight or dk weight/3 light.

What the difference between 4 medium weight and dk weight for this pattern?

The 4 medium weight ( I make in pink color) will give you the chunky look and more weight and more warmer for the very cold season.

made with 4 medium weight yarn

The dk weight ( I made in blue color)  will give you the light and lacy look with the big crochet hook that we use in this pattern suitable for tropical weather that when in the winter it have a  bit of cold.

And the blue color is my favorite go to color that I am always love to pick up for many project like blue lagoon cardigan or  a modern crochet top tee  is also blue!

  7. I love your sweater and i want to make this, but can you tell me how much inches do i have to sew for the shoulders?

  8. HI Dimitra, for sewing the shoulder to make is one off the shoulder I sew one side is shorter than another side for example on the left I sew 6 inch and on the right I sew 10 inch.

  9. Why is it that you sewed one side of the shoulders shorter than the other?

  10. HI Mayzee, I sewed one size shorter than other side because it will create the off shoulder effect.
