You know what’s better than Netflix and crochet? Netflix and crochet – IN A CHUNKY HOUSECOAT! This chunky housecoat free crochet pattern is the perfect solution!
Chunky Housecoat Free Crochet Pattern
This newest housecoat pattern is heavy, it’s warm, it’s comfy and it’s free! Choose to add the sleeves – or not! I liked it both ways but decided to go with the sleeved version for added warmth. For this crochet pattern you’ll need super bulky yarn (bulky would suffice, although the housecoat would be a tad bit smaller) and a 10mm crochet hook. Since this yarn is so thick the pattern works up SUPER fast, and you don’t need many stitches! I love that.
If you’d rather make a worsted weight housecoat find that pattern here.
Also, if you love my shirt you can get one here. Eat, Sleep, Crochet, Repeat!
7 hhdc and 6 rows = 4” square
-Place first st in same as turning.
-If you dislike using the Herringbone Half Double crochet, regular Half Double would suffice as well.
-If you would like the housecoat shorter, you’ll remove chains from the beginning chain, and remember that number throughout.
-If you need help don’t hesitate to shoot me an email!

Turn work clockwise so that you can crochet up the side.
Sc in same st and in each row end to corner. (10) sc in same st (the corner st), turn work clockwise once more and sc down to end.
Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing to fronts.
Sew pockets on, about 20 sts up from the bottom and 7 rows in from the inner edge. Note that you may want to wash your finished housecoat BEFORE adding the pockets. Where they lay now may relax after washing and you may wish you would have placed them higher.
You’re done! I thought about adding a small tie closure to the front, but I’m going to leave it as-is for now and make that decision after wearing for a week or two.
