The Hartley Sweater Crochet Pattern

Today I’m excited to announce my newest design: The Hartley Crochet Pattern for women!

Hartley crochet sweater pattern by Teal & Finch

I wanted to create a sweater that made a bold statement and was a lot of fun to wear. And, I have to say, this one certainly fits the bill!

Crocheting bobbles is one of my favorite things…and I knew I wanted to go big with them. I’ve been seeing them around a lot lately and I really like the feminine yet playful look they provide.

The Hartley crochet pattern has a circular yoke, which you may have guessed is one of my favorite design techniques. You can try it on as you go and easily adjust sizing for the perfect fit.

Maybe the best part this sweater is the super bulky yarn. Combine that with the shorter length and you might be able to make this sweater in a weekend. Bring on the movies and hot chocolate! (Doesn’t that sound like the perfect winter weekend?)

The pattern has 5 sizes from women’s XS to 4X and comes with links to 6 videos to help you along the way. So a confident beginner could definitely rock this sweater.

I hope you enjoy and share your makes with me, I love to see them! @tealandfinch

The Cozy Day Crochet Pullover

I have a super warm and cozy pattern for women to share with you today: The Cozy Day Crochet Pullover!

cozy day pullover crochet pattern

Because it’s January and time for some super bulky yarn…even in Northern California… it’s COLD.

I love this pullover because it works up FAST and is seriously WARM. The short length makes it even quicker without sacrificing warmth.

The Cozy Day Crochet sweater is a drop shoulder pattern, so the front and back are two rectangles. The front neck has simple shaping for a beautiful ballet neckline.

There is a link to a video in the pattern to give you a visual of how to work the neckline finishing. You can check that out here.

Side vents are easy to create with the back being longer than the front – I just love this look!

The women’s pattern includes SIX sizes from XS to 2X.

There is also a separate children’s pattern which includes sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12. So you can make one for yourself and a matching one for your favorite little person. Or give them as a gift to the girls in your life.

My daughter loves how warm and cozy hers is. Plus of course matching with mom is the best.

The Willow Crochet Cardigan

I have a fun new pattern for kids to share with you today: The Willow Crochet Cardigan for babies and kids!

Willow Cardigan pattern

I wanted to make a long cardigan for my daughters. I think they see my long sweaters and wish they had one too, so I decided to make one that went past their hips that they could wear with jeans.

Kids cardigan pattern

The Willow cardigan features simple crossed double crochets worked with DK weight yarn. I used squishy soft merino, my absolute favorite type of yarn. I love the way it squishes and it ends up being so warm and cozy.

The circular yoke pattern is great for kids because you can try it on as you go. My daughters always cringe when I need to try it on them *again* but they are used to it by now!

The The Willow Crochet Cardigan pattern includes SIX sizes from babies to youth 14, so you can make one for all your favorite kiddos. I hope you enjoy!

Crochet Vest Pattern with Jumbo Yarn

Hi Crochet Friends! Today I’m happy to share with you a new crochet vest pattern in 3 sizes made with jumbo yarn.

Crochet Vest Pattern with Jumbo Yarn

This layering piece made from jumbo/giant yarn is a quick and easy make!  I love it for wearing over other sweaters or just with a t-shirt and jeans.  The pattern includes three sizes: child, women’s regular, and plus size.  As you can see, the vest has a loose fit and can be worn with 4-10″ positive ease.

It’s a very quick and easy project, just in time for gift-giving or a wardrobe update for yourself. The crochet pattern calls for a P/15mm crochet hook and giant/jumbo yarn.  I used Lana Grossa Estremo, which I got from LoveCrochet. Unfortunately, it is no longer available there.  However, you are sure to find other jumbo yarn that call for a P hook (I found one here.)

The beginner-friendly pattern is easy to follow and great for fall/winter layering. I hope you enjoy and share your makes with me!

Dahlia Crochet Sweater Pattern Update

Today I’m excited to share with you an update my Dahlia crochet sweater pattern!

Dahlia Crochet Sweater Pattern

I love this sweet sweater with the layers of puff stitches around the neckline.  The wrist puffs just add that extra finishing touch to make this sweater really special.

You can see all the features and details in the original blog post that came out when I first published the Dahlia pattern.  Not much has changed, just a few tweaks here and there. The changes focus mainly on the women’s sleeve and a small adjustment to the body and sleeve division.

Did you know there’s also a baby version of the pattern? The Dahlia baby features a back neck slit with button closure to accommodate baby’s head.  So you can truly make this sweater in just about every size.

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

Today we have a new easy everyday crochet cardigan pattern to share with you all! Maylee is such a cozy, beginner friendly sweater and it whips up very quickly.

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

I love the longer style and casual, no buttons opening. It’s great for layering and creating a relaxed look.  This is my go-to style for winter, so I decided to design one that I would love to wear every day!

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

The Maylee pattern calls for bulky yarn, so this sweater is a fairly quick project. Faster than crocheting a blanket, which I no longer seem to have the patience for…sad!

You can find the pattern on Etsy.

Or on Ravelry, of course.

And my growing favorite place to find yarn and patterns, Love Crochet.

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

The drop shoulder design features five panels that are sewn together as you go.  Two sets of panels are exactly the same, making things even easier.  Included in the pattern are women’s sizes XS, S, M/L, XL, and 2X, perfect for making one for yourself and one for a friend.

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

Shown here is Knit Picks Simply Wool in the color Wilbur. I loved working with this yarn. It was easy to work with and I’m finding it to wear very well, too. I’ve never had a wool sweater before and I like it!

Easy Everyday Crochet Cardigan Pattern

The only supplies you’ll need is a 7mm crochet hook (or size to get gauge) and a tapestry needle. I really like using these sewing clips to hold the pieces when I sewed the panels together. But those are optional, of course.  I also like to use stitch markers to keep track of counting rows. Or tally marks scrawled on the pattern page work, too!

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

Emmeline Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Hi crochet friends! I’m so excited to introduce to you today the Emmeline Cardigan Crochet Pattern!

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

I’ve had this pattern in the works for quite awhile and I’m so happy to finally get to share it with you because I think it is so special.

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

I learned how to design circular yoke sweaters a few months ago and I know many of you have enjoyed the Dahlia pullover. My dream was to create a really beautiful cardigan that was unique and inspiring while not being too difficult or complex.

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

I like it when a pattern keeps me on my toes, but isn’t too overwhelming. So I designed this cardigan to have one thing to think about at a time. The increases are simplified because they only happen in single crochet rows. The crossed doubles give something different to do while building up the yoke and sleeves.

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

Then comes the woven stitch–the highlight of this sweater. The woven stitch pattern accents the waist and creates a pretty edge while building up the even rows at the bottom of the body and cuffs.

Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with these stitches, the pattern includes links to two videos that walk you through them step by step. You only need to know basic stitches such as chaining, single crochet, double crochet.

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

I really like how it turned out!  This sweater is great for wearing with a dress or skirt to church, out to dinner…anytime I need an extra layer on top of something pretty and feminine.

Emmeline Cardigan crochet pattern

I hope you enjoy!

The pattern comes in women’s sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, 2X and is available on the Love Crochet website.

I have to talk about this fabric yarn, that I really love.  This yarn is made from recycled fibers from the garment industry and is 80% cotton.  It’s very durable and therefore perfect for things like bags, totes, purses, and backpacks. It’s also super bulky so it works up very quickly.  Plus, it’s easy to find. The Love Crochet website has this Hoooked RibbonXL in a ton of beautiful colors. Wouldn’t it be fun to make one in every color?

Here’s a peak at some of the information in the pattern to get you started:

General Instructions:  The Medina Market Tote is worked in the round from the bottom up.  Sturdy handles are added while finishing the top and the bottom is securely closed in the last step.
