It’s cozy weather! And I’m in full-on knit mode. I finished one sweater and quickly moved on to the next. I’m sure I have a collection of patterns I’ve purchased that I haven’t yet made, and I have at least one more sweater kit waiting in the queue for me, but that doesn’t stop me from eyeing up another one for the queue. And I think I need a handmade hoodie. Which one of these gorgeous knit and crochet hooded sweater patterns should I add to my list?

The Harvest Hooded Sweater is a crocheted design from Mason Jar Yarn Designs. I love its simple double crochet construction, which means it will work up relatively quickly, but also cozy with a nice drape. It’s a size inclusive pattern, accommodating sizes up to 5X (62″ inch chest body measurement) with a skill level of advanced beginner.
The Aspen Hooded Sweater Crochet Pattern from Adorish Originals is made top down in one continuous piece, so no seaming, at least for the body. The kangaroo pocket is optional, but I would definitely include it. You have to check out the other photos of this sweater–so adorable! The pattern includes sizes S-3XL, fitting up to a 54″ chest and is made with worsted weight yarn.
The Dutton Hoodie Men’s Crochet Hoodie Pattern is a great textured crochet pattern from Two Brothers Blankets with sizes up to 5X, fitting up to a 64″ chest. Using the beautiful Alpine stitch to create the lovely texture and fingering weight yarn, this project is not a quick sweater, but would be so worth the time to make!
The Hawthorn Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Evelyn and Peter is made with chenille yarn, so it will be soooo cozy to wear. It’s size inclusive, up to a 5X and is also available as a Lion Brand kit if you want to get all of the yarn and the pattern in one bundle. Super handy!
Ok, now for some knits! This Vintage Men’s Hooded Sweater Knitting Pattern from Thistle and Twig Crafts is a classic men’s hoodie, vintage from the 1970s, but so classic it’s easy to imagine wearing it today. Not size inclusive, as it only accommodates sizes from 38″-50″ chest measurements. But you gotta love a classic raglan hoodie!
Here’s another vintage number, the Vintage Easy Plain Hooded Sweater for Children from Pattern Bazaar Shop. With options for both a cardigan and a pullover, this classic simple hoodie pattern for kids would make a lovely baby gift. Parents always get loads of tiny stuff, but tiny ones become toddlers and they still need stuff to wear. How much nicer is it to have something that will fit them for a little longer?
The Unixex Hooded Sweatshirt with Kangaroo Pocket Knitting Pattern from Alya Pattern is another classic hoodie pattern. The instructions include final chest measurements up to 148cm (58″), an XXL. So, to accommodate the kind of ease you might want for this type of garment (I like my hoodies to be oversized, so about 6-10″ of positive ease), you’ll want to make your size to accommodate that. So, I wouldn’t say this pattern is size inclusive.
This Vintage Slouchy Ribbed Hooded Pullover Sweater Knitting Pattern from Fab Fashion Patterns is soooo fun! I love this shot of the model on the beach: what a vibe! This pattern uses a chunky or bulky yarn. It is a vintage pattern, so it is not size inclusive, sadly, but it is quite oversized. It is also a UK pattern, so I’m not sure what the differences are for North American knitters, but it does mention using UK crochet terms, so I guess there’s some crochet in it? If you make it, I would love to hear about your experience!
The Turning Points Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Ginger Knot Shop is a lovely colour block raglan construction crocheted hoodie with no seams! I love no seams! My favourite! Made in the moss stitch with size 4 worsted weight yarn, this hoodie has an optional front pocket. I don’t think it really counts as a hoodie unless it has a front pocket, but that’s just me. This looks like a fun option. It’s been so long since I’ve made a crocheted garment, this one just might be the one for me. It includes instructions for sizes XS-3X.
And a final option (obviously not for me), but the Vintage Cable Sweater Sweater with Hood for 0-6 years Knitting Pattern from Pattern Bazaar Shop is such an adorable option. With a little bit of texture and some lovely cables, this cute little vintage pattern would make such a sweet gift for a little one!
I hope you have enjoyed this pattern round up of hooded sweaters. I’m not sure which one I’m adding to my queue yet. Let me know what you would make. Grab the pattern and some yarn and get making today or pin it for later!
