Hot Mama! Our Favorite Crochet Sweater Kits for Mom and Baby

When you purchase a crochet kit, you get the pattern as well as all of the yarn that you’ll need to complete the pattern. You can still choose the yarn color that you want, of course. And guess what? You often get it all at a discount compared to what you would normally pay.

Use these eight crochet kits to make wraps for mom, the kids and even the family dog to stay warm on chilly spring evenings.

Women’s Crochet Wrap Kits

Craftsy currently has three crochet wrap kits for women.

crochet striped sweater

Next Generation Crewneck Pullover by Lion Brand Yarn

So far all of the crochet sweater kits that we’ve looked at were designed to be solid colored sweater with a wide variety of choice in the colors available. However, some crochet kits come with more than one color of yarn but no choice in the colors. These are designed to be worked just like they are seen in the pattern.

This crewneck kids’ striped sweater pattern is a great example, which is worked using Lion Brand Tweed yarn. It’s an easy crochet pattern that uses only single crochet and half double crochet stitches. It’s available in five sizes; the smallest is 23″ around at the chest and 13.5″ long and the largest is 34″ around and 22″ long.

I’d like the patterns from kits to be available separately. I’m an international customer and I have often liked a project but not wanted to pay shipping on yarn that I could easily buy at home. It’s especially frustrating when the kit mentions the pattern is downloaded as a PDF. Why not just sell the pattern separately?

I too would like to purchase the patterns separately. I have a HUGE yarn stash, and some of these darling patterns would make a good dent in that. I’d love to know where I can buy just the patterns.

I really like the Lacy Poncho but not for any of the others. So I am not interested unless I can buy it separately.
