Free Pattern

Lee’s Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

I designed the Lee’s Sweater as a free crochet pattern to be over sized and ultra cozy! I absolutely loved working with Lion Brand Yarn Sock Ease for this free crochet pattern, the colourway Marshmallow is so beautiful!

I wanted something ultra wearable with a beautiful stitch, and of course I love a ribbed collar and cuff! I always love finding ways to create knit looking stitches with crochet!

I absolutely love the stitch pattern, it’s easy and a bit repetitive which is great because this is a fairly thin yarn to work with! It’s totally worth it though because it wears like a dream.

  1. I am wondering if I can use a baby yarn to make this sweater, I have lots of it and none of the sock yarn 🙂
    TIA

  2. Hi
    I have a question for the Lee’s sweater do you first chain 90 and then start fpdc? I am new to crochet and a bit confused.
    Thanks
