Crochet Body Warmer

By:

This body warmer is a great free crochet pattern for a man. If you're looking for a warm and cozy gift for that special man in your life then this is perfect. This pattern is crocheted in one piece and then sewn together at the shoulders.

This body warmer is crocheted in one piece and then sewn together at the shoulders. Here I have used double crochet stitch but you could use either single crochet or treble crochet. The pattern works up quickly and I’m told the final garment is indeed very warm.

I have designed this body warmer to be bigger around the front as I’m told most men are bigger at the front. If you want the warmer to be equally sized I would reduce the left & right front by 1 or 2 rows. This warmer measure 44” chest.
 

Materials:

  • 5.5mm, any DK yarn here I used Wendy Fusion in shades of Chilli Pepper, Turmeric and Mace.
  • Tension/Gauge:
  • 5 sts & 2 rows measures 2” x 1.5”

Pattern:
Ch 45 (+2 for turning)
Row 1: dc into 2nd ch from hook and across all ch
Row 2: ch2, dc into 2nd st and all across to end.
Row 3: ch 2, dc into 2nd stand all sts to last st, work 2 dc into final st
Row 4: Ch 2, 2 dc into 1st st, dc all sts.
Row 5: As row 3
Row 6: As row 4
Continue working these 2 rows and increasing at neck edge until 11 rows are complete.
Row 12-14 Work straight dc
Row 15: work 35 dc and turn (armhole shaping)
Row 16 – 18 work straight dc
Row 19: work straight dc and ch 19ch at end of row
Row 20: turn and dc into 2nd chain from hook and dc across all sts.
Row 21 – 23 straight dc
Row 24: dec 1 st at neck edge, dc to end.
Row 25: dec 1 st at neck edge, dc to end.
Row 26: dec 1 st at neck edge, dc to end.

You are now half way through and the pattern is now just reversed.

Row 52: dc 1 st at neck edge, dc all across
Row 53: dc 1 st at neck edge, dc all across

Finishing: I went around the whole warmer using black yarn and SC but that isn’t required. Sew in all loose ends.
