The Manilow Pullover Crochet Pattern

The first sweater pattern of 2024 is here! Meet the Manilow Pullover, a super chic free sweater crochet pattern spanning five sizes: SMALL to 2XL.

Grab your hooks and let’s go!

When designing the Manilow Pullover I wanted a stark contrast between the body (boring) and the sleeves (super fancy). The sleeve stitches really POP and give it a leveled up vibe that can be paired with jeans for running errands or dressed up with fun jewelry for date night.

Materials:

Andean Treasure Yarn OR Brava Sport

-approx. (1400, 1550, 1775, 1950, 2200) yards

Crochet hook in size 6mm and size 4mm

*or sizes needed to obtain gauge

Sizing: (S, M, L, XL, 2XL)

Actual garment bust/torso measurement: (34”, 37.5”, 42”, 47.5”, 50.5”)

Gauge for Main Body: 17 sts x 10 rows = 4” square using double crochet and 4mm hook

Gauge for Sleeves: 14 sts (7 complete Berries) x 9 complete Berries (18 rows total) = 4” square using Uneven Berry Stitch and 6mm hook

Gauge Swatch for Berry Portion Pattern:

Row 1: Fsc-17 (or ch-18, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end) (17)

Row 2: Turn, sl st in first st, * Berry in next sc, sl st in next * repeat between * * to end.

Row 3: Ch-1, turn, sc in first st, * sl st in top of next Berry, sc in next sl st * repeat between * * to end.

Row 4: Ch-1, turn, sc in first st, sl st in next st, * Berry in next sc, sl st in next sl st * repeat between * * until one st remains, sc in final st.

Row 5: Turn, sl st in first st, sc in next sl st, * sl st in top of next Berry, sc in next sl st * repeat between * * until one st remains, sl st in final st.

Preparation: Fasten off all three pieces (two sleeves and body) and weave in all ends. It is preferable to launder the pieces before construction so that the stitches settle.

Body Border: Looking at “right side” attach in corner point as pictured. Ch-1, sc evenly down row ends and back up to their raglan point.

Fasten off on each side. Do not weave in ends. Flip inside out.

Sleeves border: Looking at “right side” attach in top corner as pictured. Ch-1, sc evenly down row ends and around to other top corner.

Do not fasten off. Flip inside out.

Construction:

Where still attached, line up the sleeve opening with the corresponding body opening. 

Using stitch markers, pin the bottom most point of each together. Smooth flat and place another stitch marker somewhere in the middle.

Loosely sl st using the outside loops only from each side, working down to the center-most point. Flip it over to work the other side.

Re-do the stitch markers for the other half and continue loosely sl stitching up to the other shoulder.

Fasten off. Repeat on the other side. Flip right side out.

Do not fasten off the second side.

Neck edging:

Where still attached and with 4mm hook…

Row 1: Ch-2, * dc in each of the (36, 42, 50, 38, 41) sts of “front”, dc in each of the (9, 11, 13, 15, 17) sts across the sleeve top * repeat between * * one more time. Join to top of first st. (90, 106, 126, 106, 116)

Round 2: Ch-2, do not turn, * fpdc around next, bpdc around next * repeat between * * until two sts remain. Fpdc2tog, join to top of first st. (89, 105, 125, 105, 115)

Round 3: Ch-2, turn, * bpdc around next, fpdc around next * repeat between * * until one st remains. Bpdc around last, join to top of first st. (89, 105, 125, 105, 115)

Round 4: Ch-2, turn, * fpdc around next, bpdc around next * repeat between * * until one st remains. Fpdc around last, join to top of first st. (89, 105, 125, 105, 115)

Use the yarn tails to sew up any holes or inconsistencies.

That’s it! I hop you adore this design and that you’ll wear it often.
