Learn to crochet this easy, beginner friendly crochet sweater scarf. Perfect worn over a tee, sweater, dress or even a jacket, this crochet wrap is ideal for cool evenings in the summer or for layering during the colder months ahead.
The sweater scarf is constructed in one entire piece beginning with one of the sleeves, then the main body and finally the second sleeve. It is fully customisable so you can make it wider than what the pattern states or even longer. All notes on how to do so are given throughout the pattern.
I chose very simple stitches for this piece. Given that it’s a pretty long piece I wanted a stitch pattern that took very little thought yet still have some of that texture that I just love seeing in any piece. There’s nothing worse that making a piece that is extremely long and having to watch and count ever single stitch and make sure everything is as the pattern states. No, I wanted a stitch pattern that was repetitive and very easy.
The yarn I chose for this crochet sweater scarf was Lionbrand Heartland in the shade Yosemite. I’ve has this yarn in my stash for months and I always knew I wanted to use it for something coming into the Fall months. Yes I know it’s only July now, but to me I’m already in Fall mode!
I simply love everything about this yarn from this beautiful rusty shade down to the wonderfully soft touch. Even though it is an acrylic yarn, it is extremely soft and lovely to work with.
