PUTTING THE SWEATER TOGETHER

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.

Attach your yarn at the top of your sleeve and sew the top of your grannies together. Once you reach the main part of your sweater you can grab your next granny for your front and sew it on along the top, only half way. This will be one side of the neck. Cut your yarn. Repeat of next side of front granny.

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.

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.
