The crochet reversible sweater pattern, 1 sweater with 2 sides and 2 different looks! Meet the chic reversible crochet sweater with 2 different sides, completely different textures, and colors.
Following my first reversible dress design, I knew I must make a sweater in the stitch. Starting with the boat neckline, this is all I have ever dreamt of.
Why reversible crochet sweater?
well, I get bored with the monotonous use of items that extend to my garments. This is what gave birth to designing crochet reversible and convertible garments/accessories.
Let’s talk about the Reversible Crochet Stitch
The reversible crochet stitch is such an interesting stitch that every crocheter would love. The reversible crochet stitch uses the same conventional crochet stitches. It uses double crochet (dc), and chains(ch)!
The main difference is how the stitches are worked. Plainly put, the reversible effect is created using V sts. To make this super easy, I have provided different video tutorials to go along with this and every other reversible crochet pattern I have designed.
Also, all the designs have been made by talented crochet testers to make sure anyone can make them.
Check out a few of my convertible and reversible designs.

3. No sewing is required.
1. Length: increase or decrease the repeats when making the body.
Too tight at the armpit? Increase the number of chains/skipped sts.
Too loose at the armpit? Decrease the number of chains/skipped sts.
3. Fit: Check to make sure you have the desired fit at each point (section).
4. Neckline Circumference – Your starting chain should be a good fit around your shoulders. Not a snug fit, as it will be made snug later.
5. Please note that I crochet loosely, most of my testers usually go down ½ or 1 hook size.
