Crochet Striped Raglan Sweater | Free Pattern & Tutorial

Share this pattern:

This crochet sweater pattern is a striped raglan sweater using three different colors: cream, pink, and brown. It was a fun project for me and I hope you enjoy this pattern!

I made this sweater using my own measurements, but it’s super simple to change the size. If you want to make it smaller or larger, then you can do less or more rounds for the yoke than I did!

For a more in-depth, recent, and updated crochet raglan sweater pattern, I would recommend this two-tone raglan pattern!

You can also choose to make it all in one color; just ignore the color changes. Or you can make the stripes two, three, four, or more rounds wide!

Pin this for later!

Project Level

This pattern uses some intermediate technique such as color changes and working in rounds. I do go over every single that I do, so it is possible for more beginner crocheters to complete this sweater! This patter is made all in one piece, so there is no sewing involved. However, we will be attaching yarn to the piece often.


Note: I will denote the colors Peachy, Ivory, and Almond as colors A, B, and C, respectively.


Sleeves: 33 cm/13″ long x (16 cm/6.3″ – 7 cm/2.8″) wide (measured from underarm to end of ribbing)

Body: 44 cm/17.3″ long x 34 cm/13.4″ wide (measured from top of collar ribbing to bottom of body ribbing)

Notes and Tips

  • This pattern uses US crochet terms
  • Try on the sweater every now and then while making it to check the sizing
  • Tighten your slip stitches to make the seam smaller and less visible
  • The chain 2 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a double crochet
  • Pull your loose ends to the inside of the sweater and weave them in


ch = chain

st = stitch

sk = skip

hdc = half double crochet

dc = double crochet

dc2tog = double crochet 2 together

sl st = slip stitch

Collar Ribbing

With color B, make a slipknot and ch10 (for width of ribbing) + ch1 for turning

Row 1: hdc across starting 2nd ch from hook (10)

Row 2 – 50 (or until desired length): ch1, turn, hdc blo across

Stitching End: turn, fold ends together, sl st10 across with outer loops to join and make a circle

Change to color C.


Add 50 to the number of rows you did for the ribbing (50 + 50 rows = 100). If the number you get is divisible by 4, continue. If not, add 1 until it is (ex. 101 + 1 = 102 + 1 = 103 + 1 = 104). This number will be the total number of stitches for the first round of the yoke. We’ll do this into the side of the rows of ribbing, so we’ll do 2 stitches per row of ribbing to spread the stitches evenly.

Divide your number by 4 (100 / 4 = 25). This will be the number of stitches for each side of your yoke.

Now, we will be using the colors in the pattern C, A, and B. Make sure you change colors after every round and carry up the yarn from the previous round.

Round 1: With color C, repeat [ch2, dc25 across the ribbing, doing 2 dc per row] 4 times, ch2, sl st to 1st dc, carrying up color B and attaching color A (100 dc, 4-ch2 spaces)

Round 2 – 13: With the next color, ch2, dc in ch2 sp from last round, repeat {dc across side, [dc, ch2, dc] in ch2 space} 4 times, skipping the very last dc (108 dc, 4-ch2 spaces), (116 dc, 4-ch2 sp), (124 dc, 4-ch2 sp)…

To change the size, do more or less rounds until the yoke reaches just under your underarms.

Splitting the Yoke

Round 14: With the next color, ch2, *dc in ch2 sp from last round, dc across side, dc in ch2 space, ch5 (or desired length)*, sk entire side, repeat between **, sl st to 1st dc (98 dc, 2-ch5)


Round 15: With the next color, ch2, repeat [dc across side, dc across ch5] 2 times, sl st (108 dc)

Round 16 – 32 (or until desired length): ch2, dc around, sl st

Stop just before the color you want your ribbing to be, fasten off other colors

Body Ribbing

With color B, ch10 (for width of ribbing) + ch1 for turning

Row 1: hdc across starting 2nd ch from hook (10)

Row 2: sl st to body, sl st2tog, turn, hdc blo across

Row 3: ch1, turn, hdc blo across

Repeat Row 2 and 3 around bottom of sweater

sl st the ends of the ribbing together with the outer loops

Fasten off


Using the same color you made the ch5 with (color A), attach it to the middle of the ch5

Row 1: ch2, dc3 across ch5, dc2tog twice in corner, dc around sleeve, dc2tog twice in next corner, dc2 along ch5, sl st (50)

Row 2: ch2, dc around with dc2tog in each corner (48)

Row 3: ch2, dc around

Row 4 – 28: Repeat Row 2 and 3 (stitch count should drop by 2 every decrease round)

Repeat the same ribbing as the body.

Fasten off.

Complete other sleeve the same way.

Weave in all of your loose ends and you have your brand new raglan sweater!
