DIY Mint Green Crochet Sweater

DIY Mint Green Crochet Sweater

I’m loving how my mint green crochet lace sweater turned out!

As you may know, I don’t like to knit but I like to crochet. And when I found the pattern for this beautiful crochet lace sweater in a magazine, I just had to make it! 😀

The Yarn

I used mint green mercerized 100% cotton yarn for my DIY crochet sweater. I always use natural fiber yarn and fabric for my projects like cotton, linen, silk, wool & rayon.

Because it’s a summer crochet sweater, I chose cotton. Cotton is also cheaper than silk and less stiff than linen. And of course, I had to use mint green because it’s my favorite color! 😉

The Pattern

I found the pattern in a crochet magazine. But if you want to make a similar crochet sweater, I found some free crochet sweater patterns for you! These two crochet sweaters are similar to mine: “Miley Away” and “Daniella Jumper”, both by Drops Design. And there are more free crochet sweater patterns on their website. Check them out! I’m no affiliate, I just love their patterns and yarns! 😉
