tips on how to customize for sizes small to extra large or higher and if you’re
following my pattern exactly I’m considered a size large with a 38 inch
bust line the stitches that we’ll be using our foundation half double crochet
half double crochet and double crochet if you enjoy making crochet clothing
make sure you check out naturally Danielle and chasing sunray they have
wonderful tutorials let’s hop right into it the materials that we’re going to be
using today or a nine millimeter crochet hook or letter in and we’ll be using
four skeins of vanna’s choice which is a number 4 worsted weight yarn we’ll be
working on the front and back panels next for a perfect fit this pattern is
worked in multiples of 4 so you’re starting foundation half double crochets
should be slightly wider than the width of your shoulders and if you’re
following my pattern exactly this pattern is worked for a size large we’re going to begin by working the
front and back panels to do that you’ll have to do a foundation half double
crochet of 52 if you’re working on a sleeve you’re going to have to do 32
foundation half double crochets so I’m going to show you how to work your
foundation half double crochet you start by making a slip knot chain two one two
we’re going to yarn over insert your needle back into the hole first stitch yarn over pull up a loop yarn over go
through one loop on your hook and yarn over go through all three got stuck and
to repeat we’re going to yarn over we’re going to go into that very first V as
you can see up top is a little bit difficult go through both those V
stitches on top pull through one pull through one again and pull through three
foundation half double crochet I’ll show you one more time we’re going to yarn
over go into that very first V can’t see it right here go in through both loops
yarn over pull up a loop oops messed up on that one yarn over go through the V pull up a loop yarn over go through one
loop and yarn over go through all three all right we’re going to continue make
it the total amount of foundation half double crochets for your front and back
panel that would be 52 and for your sleeves that would be only a foundation
chain of 32 so pause your video here I’ll meet you at the completion of your
foundation half double crochet okay we finish our necessary foundation half
double crochets and now we’re going to chain 4 1 2 3 4
your chain 4 will count as a double crochet and a chain 1 from here on out
so turn your work and we’re going to skip the next three stitches and place
three double crochets into the fourth stitch so one two three place three
double crochets into the fourth stitch one two three from here on out
I’m going to call these three double crochets a DC cluster okay so now we’re
going to chain one skip three spaces and place a cluster into the fourth stitch
one two three four one two and three this is going to be our
pattern repeat we’re going to chain one and continue placing one two three four
a cluster into the fourth stitch over I’ll do that one more time with you
one two and three chain one so continue chaining one placing a cluster in the
fourth stitch over all the way across until you make to the end I’ll work the
very last stitch with you so you can pause your video here okay we made it to
the end of the row and for your very last stitch we’re just going to remember
already chain one we’re going to place a double crochet into the very last stitch alright for your next row we’re going to
chain three one two three your chain three counts as a double crochet turn
your work we’re gonna place a DC cluster into the very first chain one space
right here so one two and three chain one we’re going to place a DC cluster
into the next chain one space one two and three chain one this is going to be
your pattern repeat we’re going to place a DC cluster in each chain one space
then chain one all the way across until you make it all the way to the other
side and we’ll work the last stitches which you hear so pause your video here
and I’ll meet you at the other side okay we made it to the end of this row and I
already chain one and in your last chain 4 space we’re going to place four double
crochets one two three and four okay this is going to be one of the rows that
we’re going to have to repeat eventually so keep note of that one for our next row
which is also part of our two row repeat we’re going to chain four one two three
four remember that chain four counts as your double crochet and a chain one turn
your work we’re going to place a DC cluster into the first chain one space one two and three and chain one I think you’re
catching on to the routine from here so we’re just going to continue placing a
DC cluster in each one of your chain one spaces followed by chain one all the way
across until you make it to the other side and I will work the very last
stitch with you we’ve made it to the end of the row and I already chained one and
now we’re gonna place a double crochet into the top of your chain three stitch
because remember your chain three counts as a double crochet okay we’re just
gonna repeat the last two rows until you have a total of 35 DC clustered rows
just in case you forget the pattern for the last two rows I want to leave a
timestamp below on where to start these last two pattern repeats we’ve completed
all our additional granny square rows and I already went ahead and started
doing my last row of half double crochet across the top so I didn’t figure I had
to show you that but place a half double crochet across the top just when you
make it to your in make sure you hit every stitch but half double crochets so
out to the last couple half double crochets with you what I don’t want you to miss is your
very last chain for section right here or you’re going to place four half
double crochets into this chain for section so let’s work that together 1 2 3 & 4
now you can just fasten off your work and leave a long tail for sewing this is
what your front and back panel should look like next we’re going to be working on a sleeve
and we’re just going to repeat the pattern just start your on video back at one
minute and 22 seconds and to adjust for size remember we’re working in multiples
of four and just complete 18 more rows here’s what your two sleeves look like
when you’re done leave a long tail for sewing okay now that we got a better
view we’re going to take your sleeve and fold your sleeve in half and we’re going
to take that long tail in thread it through a needle and we’re just going to
do a simple whip stitch all the way up and down go all the way up the side of
your work to seaming your side no special stitch required you can either slip
stitch or whip stitch or whatever type of sewing technique that you want and
just continue doing that all the way up the side of your sleeve and I’ll meet
you when you’re at the closure next up sewing the shoulder seam for this next
section we’re going to be working on your front and back granny square panels
we’re going to lay each piece on top of each other and we’re going to start with
this shoulder seam and we’re going to place slip stitches along this side now
that you have a frame of reference I’ll pause the video and we’ll set up for our
slip stitching okay now that we got our two pieces on top of each other we can
start slip stitching together so insert my needle to the front front
stitch and I will front my needle and certain my needle through the back
stitch and slip stitch to join that’ll be your first one we’re going to
do a total of 13 slip stitches so you’re going through the front going through
the back and slip stitch go into the front and back and slip stitch row
continue placing slip stitch for a total of 13 slip stitches or how many other
stitches you feel comfortable with the width of your neck all right pause
reveal here and complete your additional stitches next you’re going to attach the
arms to your top place either sleeve on either side of your square and we’re
going to begin to sew okay what’s your viewing now is the
sleeve connected to the top part of your top right here is the shoulder seam and
when you’re attaching a sleeve make sure the bottom saves part of your sleeve
seam is facing the bottom you don’t want it up top where people can see it so
what I did I patched a new piece of yarn and add it my needle and what I’m going to
do is simply whip stitch all the way down my work just the front section of
the sleeve if that makes sense let me show you exactly what I’m talking about see I’m doing the front panel of my
sleeve to the front panel of my work and I’m thinking can you place a whip stitch
all the way down and once I get to the middle part right here where my sleeve
ends I’m going to connect the bottom part of my top and whip stitch all the
way down a remainder of my sweater and once that’s done the last piece
that’ll be left over is to sew the back section of your sleeve so you can pause
your video here can can you placing whip stitches all the way down the side of
your work and actually I’ll meet you at this part of your sleeve so you know
exactly how to sew next okay we’ve made it down to the center part of our
sweater we sewed the front part of your sleeve and now since we’re here we’re
going to sew the rest the earth together the front and the back so
behind your work up and this time we’re going to pick up the front and back gray
square panels or granny panels whatever you want to call them and continue whip
stitching or whatever type of stitch that you’d like to use all the way down
the remainder of your work and eventually once you get down to the
other side you’ll have a little open space on your sleeve for the back that
you’ll have to sew closed also so you can pause your video here continue
working the seam all the way down to the bottom of your shirt and I’ll meet you at
the bottom and we’ll work the rest of the top together okay now we’re going to be working on
the collar of your shirt right now the view that you’re looking at is the
neckline and we’re going to make sure we turn our work to the right side out and
you’re going to attach a piece of yarn to the very back of your work I like it
to attach the back so you won’t see any of the seams so that’s where we are
right now I have the yarn attached to my work and right now we’re going to place
in knit half double crochets to do that you’re going to go into the third loop
of the previous half double crochets as you can see here I’m sorry let me zoom
in if some of you don’t know how to do a knit half double crochet as you can see
there are two loops right here that creates a V stitch to make a knit stitch
you’re going to turn your work slightly and you’ll see a third loop right here
that third loop is the one we’re going to be working into so I’ll show you loop
one two third loop it’s back V so let’s begin our stitch yarn over and go into
that back loop and complete your half double crochet once again yarn over turn
your work to the third loop create your half double crochet once again you see
your two stitches turn your work work into the third loop in the back of your
work and complete your half double crochet turn to work remember one to
Luke 3 we’re going to continue placing knit half double crochets all the way
around we’re going to work in continuous rounds not slip stitching to join so
work your way all the way around and I’ll meet you back when you make it to
the very beginning so pause your video here and then I’ll show you what to do
next oK we’ve made it back around and instead
of slip stitching the join we’re going to be working in the round by continue
placing the knit half double crochet all the way around so instead of
stitching you yarn over and turn to work and go into that back third loop to
complete your half double crochet turn your work go into the back loop complete
