Crochet Kit - Backpacker Sweater Jacket
This easy crochet sweater jacket pattern uses very simple stitches and construction to create a stylish cold-weather staple. With the main fronts and back of this jacket worked in one piece, you’ll enjoy a good dose of cruise control crochet. Later in the pattern, you’ll elevate the entire look of your crochet sweater jacket with a rolled collar and comfy angled pockets. Add an optional belt or leave it open for an oversized look.
*Please note that optional belt requires an additional 82(85,91,96,101,108)g of yarn.
