I love looking at crochet patterns available on the internet. I especially love looking at crochet patterns that are FREE! Who doesn’t like free. So I’m sharing with you a selection of some of my favorite apparel for women free crochet patterns.
I love the romantic look of the crocheted cardigan with long sleeves and the scalloped edging of the collar and sleeves. The large button closure adds to it’s beauty. I could see this cardigan crocheted with a glamorous sparkle yarn to wear over a cocktail dress. I can also see this cardigan crocheted in a solid cream colored yarn and worn with a casual attire.
This crocheted cardigan would look great on any woman. It’s lightweight. It can be worn year-round and when you crochet it in a neutral color it will compliment any outfit. I especially love the way the designer finished off the sleeves with a roll over cuff with sleeve cuff straps and a button accent. The sweater also has large pockets to carry essentials while strolling through the park. This pattern is available in sizes S – 4X. Yarn used is a DK weight or #3 Sport yarn. They used Vanna’s Style yarn by Lion Brand which has been discontinued but you can use a comparable yarn from a different brand.
I have made several of these tops and love how they turned out. I used a cotton DK yarn or #3 Sport yarn which is cool and comfortable on the skin for a Summertime top. This top looks great with jeans or shorts and you can come up with your favorite color combo to make it special. Here is one I made in the photo below. I alternated a variegated yarn with white to get the striped look.
This lacy crop top would be great to wear to a beach or pool party. The lacy bottom edging is gorgeous and elegant. The pattern gives sizing for S-XL. The top is made with Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Classic #10 with two strands held together or you can use #3 Aunt Lydia’s thread with a single strand or any other brand of cotton crochet thread in a #3. I have made several of these tops in different colors for my clients. It works up beautifully. I would classify this pattern for Intermediate crocheters.
