This is my very first Crochet Along (CAL) and I am very excited to bring this project to you! It’s been a long work in progress. Also to celebrate my first CAL, Annie’s Craft Store has agreed to give away a free pattern every week of this CAL! So a total of 4 free patterns will be given away! Read more about the contest below.

I recommend this pattern only for intermediate crocheters.
….I made a sweater similar to this one for my daughter a few years ago, but she refused to wear it because she said the neck was to tight and also it was bunching up under the arms and it was made from cheap acrylic yarn so it was itchy, so it hung in closet for years.
So now that I have some more experience I wanted to try again to make it well and hopefully get it right this time!
Be sure to come to my Facebook page to ask questions if you get stuck.
For this project you’ll need:
HOOK: you will need 2 size hooks. 4 mm \ G hook and a 5 mm \ H hook
YARN: medium 4 worsted weight yarn \ Aran 10 ply
Each skein is 100grams / 250 meters or 273 yards
I used 3 black skeins and 1 tan and 1 teal.
Information about the kind of yarn I used
Anti – Pilling means the yarn isn’t supposed to become fuzzy. Best to get for garments. This is soft baby yarn as well.
Medium 4 worsted weight yarn \ Aran 10 ply
Each skein is 100grams / 250 meters or 273 yards per skein.
I used 3 black skeins and 1 tan and 1 teal to make the size small sweater. If you want to order the same yarn as I have then here is their site if you want to pick out different colors. http://www.kartopu.com.tr/category/baby-one
This sweater is made in a small size, but can easily be changed to fit any size. Just make your first flower ring fit around the waist of the person your making it for. It took 16 flowers for small, so try 20 for medium and 24 for large. This is only a guess though since I have not made one in any other size than small.
I would love to be able to update the pattern for sizes, so if you make one please contact me on the Facebook Page and let me know what size you made!
I will be releasing each section of the CAL once per week. Please get your yarn and hooks and be ready because you can find the first part of the CAL is already out!
