This light frost blanket sweater crochet pattern looks complicated but really easy to make. See the tutorial!
The coolest thing about these sweaters though is how easy they are to make, yet they appear to be so complicated to the untrained eye. Hee hee – our secret! But really, just check out the pictures at the bottom of the pattern to see how easy these are to put together.
This medium weight, blanket sweater shrug is perfect to take off the chill and add some style to your wardrobe. The self-striping Lion Brand Scarfie yarn creates beautiful soft stripes with an eye-catching and unique colorway. The stitch used is a crossed half double crochet which creates a “knit like” look in certain sections of the shrug. The construction is very simple as it’s made by crocheting a rectangle that is then seamed at the arms. This blanket sweater is both comfortable and functional for colder months. Attach fringe for a trendy look, or leave the blanket sweater fringe-free to show off the clean, modern striping.
