Part three

Creating the shoulders, neck and arm holes

Mark 19 sts over and place a stitch marker. Do this for both sides. If you are trying to make a different size, then mark over 1 / 3rd of the way over, count your stitches and make it even for the other side too.

 

 

Attach your yarn using the sc method and sc down to your marker. Then ch 1 and cut your yarn leaving a tail to be sewn in later.

 

 

 

Repeat for the other side and as you can see, as you made your neck hole, you also made your arm hole too.

 

 

 

The Neckline

 

Make sure your sweater is NOT inside out, and attach your yarn on the first stitch of the shoulder on the back flap side

 

 

 

 

and do 2 more rows of single crochets.

 

Then ch 1 and sc dec down the side stitches and then sc dec using the stitches where you sewed on your shoulders.

 

 

Now continue on the front side and Sc down the front flap row and repeat your sc dec sts on the other side flap.

 

 

Sl st in all sts, ch 1 and cut your yarn leaving a long tail because we will use it to do a bit of sewing.

 

There is a bit of a hole on the sides so I like to use my tail here to sew the hole shut where we just did the 2 sc dec’s.

 

Then cut another piece of yarn to sew the hole side on the other side of the collar as well.

 

 

 

Then hide your tails.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
