The Pastel Stripes Sweater is so colorful and exciting that any child would love it! #crochetsweater #crochetpattern #crochetlove #crochetaddict

Children have a wild, creative imagination. Open their closet and it’s full of bright beautiful colors and patterns. That’s why I absolutely love this Pastel Stripe Sweater!

It’s so colorful and exciting that any child would love it! It’s got a bold striped pattern in three alternating colors.

Don’t let this sweater fool you with its elaborate details. The best part about it is how easy it is to crochet.  

It’s stitched in all over in double crochet, so this is a perfect project to work up while you’re watching TV. You can zone out (as long as you’re mindful of your color changes.)

This pattern is crocheted in Universal Cotton Supreme DK. It’s a super lightweight, breathable cotton yarn that’s absolutely perfect for this Pastel Sweater.

This yarn also softens as you wash it, so this sweater will only get softer and softer over time.

You can get this yarn in the 3 colors: yellow, blush, and seafoam in the new Crochet Kit I put together.  Each kit also has a copy of the digital PDF pattern.

This sweater just screams happiness with its cheery, colorful design. I know it will bring so much laughter and joy to the little ones in your life. Grab your kit and get started!
