Item details

This is a crochet patter, not a finished product!

Crochet, not knit!

High snuggle-factor for this sweater!
People will not believe that this is crochet, not knit!
The sweater is completely made with slip stitches, the smallest of all crochet stitches.
The method is not well known, but it create a beautiful fabric, and can imitate any knitted basic stitch.
The garter stitch is one of the easiest!

Yes, it’s slow to work sl sts for a crocheter, the same speed as for knitting!
But you will be rewarded with a very special fabric!
With bulky yarn and large hook, I bet you will finish this plain sweater in short time!
I may recommend this basic sweater also for almost-beginners!
Tutorials for every step on the way!

Optional choice for how to work the neck:

Plain boat-neck. No additional edging.
Vertical sl st Rib.
Tall neck made with sl st purl-sts.

This was fun, fast, and easy!
