I love top-down sweaters, also referred to as Yoke Sweaters! There are so many great knitting and crochet patterns out there, but I put together some of my favourites so that you can find your next beautiful sweater project!
This little guide will be filled with Crochet Patterns, as well as Knitting Patterns. Because I love to do both, and have designed both, I always have my eyes on what beautiful patterns are out there in knit and crochet. Let’s start with the Crochet patterns!
Top Down Yoke Crochet Sweaters

The Millie Melody Pullover has become my new favourite sweater to wear you guys! I love it so much, I have been wearing it non-stop. I am so excited to be able to offer it as a free crochet pattern for you, in nine different sizes!
2. Sunday Sweater by Sincerely Pam
The Sunday Sweater is the perfect top down garment for lazy Sunday mornings. The easy stitch pattern and bulky yarn, make this a quick project for Crocheters of ALL skill levels.
Perfect for anyone who is afraid of tackling a garment, or even for an advanced beginner ready for a bigger project.
3. Mary Lou Cardigan by Cre8tion Crochet
This cardigan was inspired by my mother, who passed away in 2012, it’s a little quirky and completely comfortable. The tapered edging gives this cardigan a classic trapeze shape which allows for the cardigan to fit around the chest and hips perfectly. You can easily customize this design to any length and change the colorwork to suit your personal preferences.

Top Down Yoke Knit Sweaters
1. Lace Sleeve Knit Sweater by Briana K
My favorite winter sweater this year! A simple yet elegant design that is a pleasure to work on the needles. This pattern is for 8 years old to 2X and worked as one piece from top down.
2. Sugar Cookie Pullover by CoCo Crochet Lee
Are you ready for a free knitting pattern?!
When I started designing the Sugar Cookie Pullover, I knew I wanted it to be fun, but ultimately very wearable. I am absolutely in love with the way it turned out, from the fit, the drape, the colors, and the pattern itself. This free knitting pattern is available in sizes extra small through 5X to fit a wide variety of wearers, and I am so excited to be able to present this to you not only as a free pattern on the blog, but also as a Lion Brand Yarn Kit where you get the pattern + all of the yarn you need to make the pullover exactly as intended using the yarn I used.
3. Autumn League Pullover by Two Of Wands
Sometimes there are “to-makes” that sit on my agenda for just months, and others spend a few years living on my endless list of dream knits. While I’m no newbie to sweaters, the top-down raglan has been an ongoing enigma that I’ve spent years fearing. I love math, problem solving, and puzzles, so usually tackling a new idea is a welcome challenge, but something about this construction has always made me instantly think “next time.” Well, I finally faced the beast and designed my first raglan sweater, and I have to say I might be hooked.
4. Salubrious Sweater by Morgan Woltersdorf
The world is going through a very confusing time and most of us can agree that being stuck at home without a project is lame with a capital L.
I’m so happy to share this pattern with you for F R E E while the powers that be figure out this pandemic.
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do, happy making!
