Six Plus Size jackets and cover-ups: Free crochet patterns

Today we have six plus size jackets and cover-ups, free crochet patterns that are perfect for those in larger sizes. It can be difficult to find plus size patterns in crochet styles, so hopefully these will be a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

The first pattern is pictured above and is the Zen Jacket in light, periwinkle blue. It’s an intermediate level pattern from Caron and uses a beautiful fan pattern. The pattern runs in sizes from Small to 3XL.

The next pattern is the TrippyTunic. It is extremely versatile and the pattern is for a one size fits all. The model is shown wearing a yellow and green version, but you could change the color combination to anything you like. One thing about this pattern is that the design has a spider web look/feel to it. This would be great to whip up at Halloween as well. You could crochet it in black and orange for the perfect spooky cover up. Use white and soft colors for a great summertime cover up. Note, the yarn called for in the pattern is discontinued, but you can easily substitute another yarn. Just check your gauge and you’re good to go.
Our third free crochet pattern is the Tokyo jacket shown in jade green. This is a great cover up that features a solid back. The pattern is for sizes from Small to 3XL. You can download the pattern in
PDF format or read it on the site.

Now we have the Plus SizeTank. This is a user created pattern and the exact size is not listed, but you can get a good idea from the model wearing it. If you are looking for a plus size tank top or chemise crochet pattern, this may be one to try out. I would suggest using a soft, baby type yarn as opposed to acrylic so that your finished garment is as comfortable as it is pretty.

The Sweetie Pie top is a great pattern that you can whip up in three, separate styles. There is the tank top version, the long sleeved, and the bell sleeved options. The pattern is for sizes Small to 3X. I think this pattern’s versatility and generous size makes it a great option for many women who are looking for the perfect plus size top pattern.

The Silk Bamboo CrochetCardigan is our final crochet pattern. This is a Caron’s pattern and is in PDF format. The free crochet pattern is available in sizes from Extra Small to 4/5 XL. This is a very feminine cardigan and is perfect for year-round wear.
