Grab 8 granny squares, we’ll be making the bottom of the sweater first.

Gran the first 2 granny squares and put them front to front where the good sides are facing each other and the back side of the granny’s are facing outward. Line them up in the corners and using the top of the ch 2 in the corner, start to slip stitch them together using the BACK loops of the grannies only.

Grab your next set of two squares and put them front to front the same way and keep slip stitching your grannies together starting in the same top ch 2 and working across to the next top ch 2 in the corner. Still using back stitches only. You will always sew using back stitches only in the project.

My daughter asked that I not crochet around the neck because she felt it was choking her as it was, so I just crocheted around the sleeves and bottom to sweater.

Take your 4 mm / or G hook and put one double crochet in all the stitches around the end of the sleeves and bottom of sweater, hide your tails.
