Cold Shoulder Swimsuit Cover Up Crochet Pattern

Every once in a while I design a crochet pattern that I just can’t get enough of. When the stars align, both the inspiration and the yarn is running freely though my fingers. This would be one of those patterns.  ♥ 

I so wish you could have seen me at any point during the last 48 hours.  My husband was practically throwing food in my mouth as he walked by my crochet chair and I should have invested in one of those helmet drink holders with straws… just think of how much more work I could have accomplished! Although I did get three swimsuit cover ups and sweaters made – so there’s that.

I made one cold shoulder swimsuit cover up in white cotton that is absolutely perfect for heading to the pool or the beach with it’s mid-thigh length.

The black I made a few inches shorter to wear with leggings or capris this summer and into the fall. My 8 year old took these last two of the black and I just had to share. For future reference, anytime you see one hand behind my ear, that’s the work of my future fashion photographer right there. 😉

Cold Shoulder Sweater or Pullover Crochet Pattern

I strive to create my crochet patterns so that any body size can crochet/use/wear the finished product. Not gonna lie, I was a little nervous about the sizing of this particular pattern, but I am happy to say that my first tester made a size 10, the second tester made a size 1x and the third tester made a size 2x.  ALL of my testers and myself were able to replicate the pattern perfectly based on each individual’s body shape!  *high five*

Here’s Ashley modeling the plus size version. Isn’t she FAB?!

Plus Size Cold Shoulder Cover Up


Cotton yarn (I Love This Cotton! used) about 800 yards (for 10/12 size)
Crochet hook in size I/5.5mm
Stitch Markers
Yarn Needle for weaving in ends

This pattern is clearly written in (almost) plain English with photos for every stage.  To get this pattern head on over to my designer page on Ravelry.  Love it, favorite it, download it and then make it!

      1. Is there scode for the free pattern.. Beautiful design. Please feel free to share in my crochet group Connies Crocheter's Guild. Love your patterns.
  5. Before I purchase this pattern, I was wondering if it had a gauge pattern before I begin? Also, I've lost a lot of weight and wear a size 6 so I'm wondering if this will be too big for me? I've never made a garment before (only a sweater for a cat lol) would this pattern be considered easy or intermediate?
  6. Oh my goodness! I saw this pattern and had to buy it immediately. Shut up and take my money! I LOVE this. Thank you for writing such wonderful patterns.
  7. Getting ready to start this cover-up and have a few questions. I'm using Caron Simply soft , and it calls for an H hook. You used an I with yours. Much difference in these 2 yarns? What is your pattern gauge ? I crochet kinda tight . Want to get this right, but I am still not very learned on gauge and such.
  8. Hi Ashley, I've been working on your Cold Shoulder Coverup. I have the pieces done, but I'm having a problem envisioning how they go together. Is there a video that shows this? Any ideas? Unfortunately, the pictures in the pattern are just not doing it for me. I don't usually have a problem, but this one is really bugging me. Thanks, Linda
  9. If pattern is purchased will you be able to print it? I like to have a hard copy at my fingertips.
    1. Hi Janice, When you purchase the pattern it will be sent to your email and available to print from there. Let me know if it does not come through and I can send it manually as well. Thank you!
  10. Please help! I've started the top twice now and each time my foundation sc chain has measured my measurements plus 4 inches as stated but by the time I've finished the first row of hdc it has grown by another 3 inches!! Is this correct?
    1. Hi Gemma, it should be a bit big, but I'm wondering if your fsc row is tighter than the regular rows? That would make it balloon out. You might watch this video on the fhdc, in it I talk about how to keep it from being too tight. Let me know if that helps! http://hearthookhome.com/crochet-foundation-half-double-crochet/
  11. Hi Ashlea The cold shoulder coverup is beautiful. I've been trying to purchase it on Ravelry to no avail. Please help. Thank you Beth
    1. Hi! Do you have a Ravelry account? If not, you should be able to enter your email and it will email the file to you. I can look into the back end also if needed. Thank you!

  14. I believe that investing in a good cover up is good. You can’t always be wondering around in just your swim suit. And cover-ups look very trendy and stylish.
      1. Do you by any chance sell it on etsy? Ravelry is so complicated to deal with. They make you keep all patterns on Ravelry site you have to constantly sign in etsy all you have to do is buy what you want bingo its sent to you immediately
        1. Hi! I do try to put most of my patterns on Etsy, but usually only the more popular patterns. This one is not on there yet, so I will work on that. Thanks!
  15. This is beautiful! I'm excited to get started on it and really happy that it can be worn for more than just a bathing suit coverup! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more of your beautiful creations!
