If you want to want to create your own sweater; one that really is your own style, you can make it from an old one you have at home. I fond this great article where someone called Monica explain in detail how to really personalize your crocheted sweater and make it your own.

The technique she uses in her descriptions is to measure up an old sweater that fits you well. We all have them…If you are like me you only want to use the old, worn out sweater; they are the best…. But with this way of crochet a sweater we can recreate our favorite item again! Very nice I think!

In this article, she explains it all…from how to measure, how to pick the right yarn etc, and of course how to finally create you new crochet sweater pattern.

Here is how she is doing it:(This is taken from another web page called , and I do not own any rights to the information. Please follow the link to read the whole article: 

Crocheted Pullover Sweater

pulloverThe pullover and cardigan sweater instructions assume you have an intermediate knowledge of crochet or knitting. This means you know how to work to gauge, increase, decrease, match pieces, and sew pieces together. If you have this background, it is not difficult to design your own pullover sweater to fit the way you want. You will need an old sweater that fits you the way you want, a stitch you like, yarn you like that works with the stitch, and a little know-how

Old Sweater That Fits

Find a pullover that fits you the way you want the new pullover to fit. You will use this pullover to get the lengths and widths of the four sweater pieces: front, back, right sleeve, and left sleeve.

While you are at it, note the stitch used and the weight and type of yarn. You do not have to use the exact same stitch and yarn, but this information will inform your stitch and yarn decisions for the new sweater especially if you want a similar look and fit.

Measure the lengths and widths of the front, back, and sleeves, and record this information somewhere. If you want the new sweater to be a little tighter, looser, or longer than the old sweater in any of the pieces, you can account for that when you spec out the new sweater.

Note: The first time you make a sweater this way, consider following the old sweater as closely as possible except for minor tweaks to the length or width of the sleeves or body pieces.

Stitch You Like

Browse the web and/or stitch books to find a few stitches you like. If this is your first sweater, you might want to go with something simple rather than a pattern because with patterns you have to figure in how the pattern can evenly repeat within the required width, and how the sides are to join when you sew them together. For example a pattern that alternates between 5 double crochets and shells should probably end with the double crochets at each end to make it easier to sew the sides together evenly.

Yarn You Like

Browse the web and/or yarn stores to find a yarn you like. The yarn, stitch, and hook or needle need to work together for the overall sweater effect you want to achieve. My best recommendation is that you keep the stitches you are considering in mind when choosing the yarn. Once you choose and purchase the yarn, try making a 5 inch by 5 inch square of the yarn and stitch using different size hooks or needles until you like the result.

Note: If you choose a much heavier or lighter yarn than the old sweater or use a larger or smaller stitch, the final new sweater’s look and fit will be somewhat different as a result.
