Hello everyone, I hope the sun is shining where you are and you’re enjoying some warm weather. I think we all deserve an extra long summer after all this is over!

In the spirit of spring/summer, I’ve made us a nice short sleeve pullover project. It’s a beginner friendly crochet pullover, with a free pattern of course. There’s also the video tutorial to follow along as well.

You can wear the sleeves rolled up, which I think is the cutest, or rolled down. It can be made in two colors or kept simple with just one.

If you’d like the premium ad free PDF pattern, it’s available for purchase on all my sales channels like Etsy, Ravelry or Lovecrafts.

I hope everyone enjoys this everyday crochet pullover project, I know I’m loving wearing mine all the time 🙂 !

If you’re looking for a long sleeve pull over option, you might like this crochet spring pull over project too.
