Free Crochet Sweater Pattern- Ridgeway Sweater

Posted on September 08, 2020 by Lorene Eppolite | 0 Comments


This Sweater is called The Ridgeway Sweater because of its ridging and texturized design. I've wanted to design a quick and easy off the shoulder sweater for a long time so when Furls Crochet contacted me I knew this was the most opportune time. I hope you all enjoy this pattern as much as I have designing it.


Hi, my name is Miranda of Crazy4CrochetMomma and I have been crocheting since I was 10 years old, taught by my grandmother because I was eager to learn. I got back into it when wanted to make beautiful creations for my first born. If you've been on any of my social media platforms, you will notice that I am a big color fan. I can't help but share all the colors. They truly brighten one's mood.

The waistband of the sweater. 

We will be working on the band and working in rounds which makes this sweater even more simple and fast to whip up! I know I love when making garments the less sewing together I have to do the better! We will go until the sleeves and then part 2 will be the sleeves. 


Row 1: Start by chaining 5, SC in 2nd ch from hook, and each ch across, ch 1 turn. (4)

Row 2: SC in same st, SC in BL of next 2 stitches, SC in last stitch, ch 1, turn. (4)

Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you reach (64)(72)(80)(88)(96) rows. (4) At the end of the designated row bring both short ends together forming a circle and sl st both ends together, do not fasten off, making sure seam is on the inside and RS is facing you, proceed to next instructions for the body of the sweater. 



Round 1: Ch 1, HDC evenly 32,(36)(40)(44)(48) stitches around, sl st to sp between ch 1 and 1st HDC of the round. (This gives it a cleaner join).  (64)(72)(80)(88)(96)

We are working on the sleeves and these are also worked in a round. The sleeves are worked with a bit of puff to them with a cinching look around the forearms to the wrists. This gives a very cute elegant look for this off the shoulder sweater. It is paired beautifully with a lace bralette! 

Reattach to the back bottom right of the arm hole, make sure the sweater is facing RS out.
