Allow me to introduce Pryor Creek Sweater. This women’s sweater crochet pattern is written in six sizes from Small to 3X! I really wanted a range of people to be able to wear this sweater. You’ll need between 8 and 14 skeins of the yarn, depending on the sweater size you choose to make.

What features does this sweater crochet pattern have?

The front of the sweater is made with post stitch ribbing. In a solid yarn, this texture would be a lot easier to see, but in this marled colorway the texture is subtle, and I like that.

The sleeves and back are smooth, stitched in half-double crochet. The body and sleeves are stitched in the round, and attached as you go with raglan seams.

This women’s sweater is almost seamless. You’ll just need to sew up a small gap in each underarm. Fortunately it won’t be visible unless you raise your arms, so if you are a little less than proficient at seaming, chances are, no one will know.

The raglan seams of this women’s sweater crochet pattern decrease from the underarm up to a boat neck, which is wide and shallow.

The pattern is pretty simple and straight forward. The most challenging part will be the first round of the yoke, where you will attach the body and sleeves together. You stitch across the first half of the back, then place your next stitch into the sleeve near the underarm join, then you crochet around most of the sleeve, and then jump back to crocheting across the front of the sweater. Next you jump to stitching around the second sleeve, and then across the other half of the sweater back.

What materials will I need to crochet this sweater?

For this women’s sweater crochet pattern you will need bulky, or weight category 5 yarn. I used Kraemer Yarns Perfect Chunky #7133 Raggedy Andy. Each skein contains 120 yds of yarn. You’ll need between 8 and 14 skeins, depending on which size you are making.

Also, you will need 8 locking stitch markers to indicate the decrease locations in the yoke. The locking stitch markers I use most are Clover stitch markers that look like fat, plastic safety pins. However, I also really love these cute cat themed stitch markers from KittyKraftStudio on Etsy.

You will of course need a crochet hook. I used an L (8 mm) hook. You should be able to use the same size, unless your gauge doesn’t match mine with that hook size. Only use a different hook size if you need it in order to match the pattern gauge. My favorite crochet hooks are the Streamline Resin hooks from Furl’s Fiberarts.

And to finish up, you’ll need a tapestry needle.
