I’d be happy to provide you with a general description of how to crochet a cropped hoodie. Please note that this is a simplified version, and you might need some prior crochet experience to fully understand and follow the instructions.

Materials Needed:

  1. Worsted weight yarn in your preferred color(s)
  2. Crochet hook (size appropriate for the yarn)
  3. Scissors
  4. Stitch markers (optional)
  5. Yarn needle

Size: This pattern can be customized to fit your size by adjusting the number of stitches and rows.


  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • st(s): stitch(es)
  • rep: repeat
  • inc: increase (crochet 2 stitches in the same stitch)


Back Panel:

  1. Start by making a foundation chain that fits around your bust. This will be the width of your back panel.
  2. Turn and work hdc stitches in each chain across. Repeat this row until your piece measures the desired length from your shoulders to just above your waist.

Front Panels (Make 2):

  1. Chain the same number as the back panel’s foundation chain.
  2. Turn and work hdc stitches across. Repeat this row until your piece measures the same length as the back panel.
  3. At the beginning of each row, decrease one stitch by working hdc in the first two stitches together. This will shape the front panels to be slightly narrower than the back.


  1. For the hood, you’ll be working in rows. Leave an opening in the center of the back panel, and attach your yarn at one edge of the opening.
  2. Chain enough stitches to reach from the bottom edge of the opening to the top of your head comfortably.
  3. Turn and work hdc stitches across. Repeat this row until your hood reaches your desired depth.
  4. To shape the hood, decrease one stitch at the beginning of each row by working hdc in the first two stitches together. Continue until you have a pointy hood shape.
  5. Fasten off when your hood is complete.


  1. Fold the front panels over the back panel with right sides facing each other. Use stitch markers to mark where the sleeves should begin.
  2. Seam the sides of the front and back panels, leaving space for the armholes.
  3. Attach the yarn to the bottom edge of the hoodie and work a row of single crochet stitches around the entire bottom edge.
  4. Attach the hood to the neck opening by sewing or crocheting it in place.
  5. Weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

Finishing: You can customize your hoodie by adding drawstrings, pockets, or embellishments like pom-poms or tassels to the hood corners. Feel free to get creative!

Remember that crochet patterns can vary based on personal preferences, yarn choices, and body sizes. It’s recommended to make a gauge swatch before starting to ensure the fit and adjust the pattern accordingly. Enjoy your crocheting project!
