Fall means crochet sweaters patterns

So let’s get it started with this fall pullover project!

Should a fall top be cropped? Who, knows, I’m just here for the crochet sweaters patterns! I love a good crochet pullover sweater, so I’m kicking fall pattern season off with this gorgeous fall pullover.

Summer is always a fun time to experiment with playful ideas and projects like shorts and beach cover ups, but when fall comes around, it feels like crochet’s time to really shine with warm winter clothes.

It’s getting chilly here, but not quite cold enough for one of my heavier crochet sweaters patterns. So this calls for something a little lighter. Something you can slip on and off over another layer if need be.

So, this fall crochet pullover sweater design just felt right to make.

It was actually a short sleeve pullover top at first, but I was quickly inspired to add sleeves to it and viola! The fall pullover is born. The crop is optional too, so be sure to read the instructions before you begin if you’d like a longer top.

I know it isn’t fall everywhere, so feel free to make the crochet pullover sweater project with short sleeves instead. I’ve included instructions on how to do so.

Some of my favorite crochet sweaters patterns I’ve designed were early on, and I didn’t make a free pattern for them.

I’m trying to remedy that now with all the current ones having a free version up to XXL. Some of the old ones are only available for sale in the ad free PDF.

That being said, the patterns are very affordable and I have a lot of coupons available.
