Softest Lounge Around Pullover Crochet Pattern

6K SharesThis oversized pullover, sweater, poncho, or whatever you want to call it is THE SOFTEST top I’ve ever crocheted. It’s made with a new chenille yarn from Lion Brand that I’m absolutely in love with. In fact, I’d been hoping to see a nice worsted weight chenille yarn hit the market for a long time and was thrilled to get my hands on this during my recent trip to New York City.What I love about this pullover is it’s oversized, really easy to make and super soft.? It reminds me of something that goes along with the whole athleisure trend; a comfortable and cute piece that can be worn with running shoes or stretch pants. This pullover goes with jeans as well of course.? The pattern can also easily be adjusted to fit your personal taste.? By leaving the sides opening and omitting the sleeve cuffs, you’ve got a poncho.? Want to make the cowl neck even more dramatic and larger? Just start with a longer chain.? ? I’ve also made this in a variety of sizes so I hope this works for you!As usual you can scroll down to see the free pattern, or you may choose to purchase the ad-free printable pattern from my Etsy shop HERE or the kit from Lion Brand Yarn HERE. (Thanks Lion Brand for the opportunity!)MY LATEST VIDEOSYou’ll make this by crocheting two rectangles and seaming them up the sides and inward at the shoulders. The cowl neck and other details are then added.? You’ll find several pictures along with the crochet pattern to walk you through the process below.? I made sure to use super simple stitches in this pattern so just about anyone can make it. The ribbing is created with single crochet stitches worked through the back loop and the majority of the pullover is done with half double crochet stitches worked through the front loops.Above: This “Dusty Blue” color goes with so much but there are a lot of other beautiful colors available with this yarn as well (see them all HERE).? And while there’s a baby on the label because it’s so perfect for anything “baby”, it’s also perfect for clothing that will be worn next to the skin.Above: For sizing reference, I am wearing the size small and am about 5’6″ and 105 lbs.? The drape is also so nice with this yarn!Pattern Description: An incredibly soft, chenille oversized sweater top featuring a cozy cowl neck. Perfect for lounging around and relaxing.?
