Best Fall Crochet Sweaters Patterns for This Autumn
It’s sweater weather, and I love making and wearing crochet sweaters. They’re cozy and comfy, and you can make them in so many different styles. I’ve designed cardigans and sweater patterns, even a swancho over the years. Here’s a roundup of all of my best fall crochet sweaters patterns.
Crochet Swancho Pattern
One of my all-time favorite fall designs is the Crochet Swancho Pattern. It’s not a poncho. It’s not a sweater. Instead, it’s the best of both worlds! This was originally a CAL but is now a free pattern on my site. It’s available in sizes from small to 5x making it one of the most size-inclusive of all crochet sweaters patterns.
Crochet Ruana Patterns
I really love making and wearing crochet ruanas. They’re the perfect layering pieces. And since you never really know the weather in autumn, they’re great to have on hand. I make mine extra cozy and warm but with short sleeves for breathability. And pockets for convenience! I designed a couple of these for you:
Originally a CAL, this crochet ruana is one of the coziest designs. The short sleeves mean you won’t be too hot. And yet, you can stick your hands in your pockets if you get chilly!
I love, love, love my Creekside Crochet Ruana. However, I wanted one that was similar but a bit lacier. So, I made the Lyvia Ruana. It’s a bit dressier and lighter for those warmer autumn days.
Crochet Cardigan Patterns
Of course, many prefer traditional crochet cardigan patterns instead of ruanas. These are also great layering pieces. They have long sleeves and wonderful drape. Here are some I’ve designed:
I love wearing sweater cardigans that feel good, have a bit of flair, and swing as I walk. This crochet cardigan hits the mark on all accounts! The oversized front lapels have lots of great swing!
I also really like cardigans that have a tie-front. Tie-front sweaters transition easily from season to season. Create a simple knot in the front at the waist, leaving the long ends dangling for an effortless, playful look. Or, wrap the ties around your waist and tie them in the back for a fitted and elegant style. This one is a lace design.
Here’s another great tie-front cardigan. I love these for fall crochet sweaters patterns! Don’t you?!
If you’re looking for free fall crochet sweaters patterns, then start with this cardigan. Use the granny square in terrific colors to create a great look for autumn!
Take those grannies to the next level with floral squares. This one might have open-work squares but look how thick and cozy the rest is. The original color makes it more of a spring design, but change it up to a mustard or a neutral, and you’ve got a great fall design. This is a free pattern!
Combine lace rectangles with terrific thick ribbed sweater cuffs for a timeless chic sweater design. You can get this pattern when purchasing the Fall 2015 Love of Crochet digital edition from Interweave Crochet.
Use fine wool and silk yarn to create a lovely textured fabric for this cardigan with scalloped neckline edges. I originally designed this for spring, and in fact, you’ll find it in the digital edition of the Spring 2015 issue of Love of Crochet from Interweave Crochet. But the color works for all seasons, really, and you could obviously change the color for more of a statement autumn style.
This is crocheted in one piece, a unique style for crochet sweaters and cardigans. Although it has long sleeves, it’s lacy, so it’s definitely meant to be a layering piece.
Interestingly, I haven’t designed many crochet pullover sweaters. However, do check out the Xanadu, a free crochet pattern for a short-sleeved (but still warm) crochet pullover. The ribbed hem is particularly cozy.
We began this roundup with the Swancho, so let’s wrap it up with a regular poncho. The Practically Perfect Poncho is one of the coziest fall crochet sweaters to throw on and cuddle up in. Wear it to yoga. Wear it over jeans. Layer it over a dress. Have fun with it!
