This listing is for a PDF crochet pattern only (US terms) and not the finished item.
Have you crocheted a hat using back loop single crochet to make the brim? That's how the neck on this sweater is worked. Have you learned how to change colors while working a corner to corner blanket? That's the technique I use for the color changes around the yoke. Do you know how to join the work under the arms to make the armholes? I use that technique too. And lastly, do you know how to work the herringbone half stitch (HHDC)? If so, you are ready to make this sweater.
The instructions and pattern make a size 2 toddler sweater. Suggestions to make it a different size would be to change the yarn weight and hook size.
Supplies you will need:
-This sweater was made with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran in duck egg and chocolate. I used 4 balls of duck egg and 4 of chocolate. Other yarn types I'd recommend is I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby, (The sweater might turn out a bit larger with this yarn.) Or Caron Simply Soft.
-Hook size: 5.5mm
-Finished size: 2 toddler (US sizing)
-(Tip: if you have chosen to work with a different yarn other than Debbie Bliss, you will need to have separate balls of yarn, about the size of your fist. Make 2 of Duck Egg and 3 of Chocolate)
