Crochet V Neck Sweater | Tutorial DIY


for this project any category four yarn
will work but I used a skein and a half of red heart Super Saver jumbo in cafe
latte as for tools a six and a half millimeter hook a five millimeter hook
scissors stitch markers and a tape measure we’re using four stitches for
this project and they will be as followed chain slip stitch single
crochet and a half double crochet this tutorial is for a small but you can
adjust it for your size and we explained how to in the video so let’s get started
to get this water started we’re first going to need to do some measuring we’re
first going to start off by grabbing a tape measure and measuring from the
outside edge of our collarbone to the other outside edge of our collarbone
take that number write it down now that we have that we get to decide how deep
you want our V to be this is how deep I like my V necks to be if you want yours
deeper go lower not as deep go higher either way measure from there back up to
your previous point whatever that measurement is we’re going to double it
and then add it to our number that we just wrote down and that’s gonna be how
long we want our initial chain to be once you’re done with that count your
loops and if you have an even number add one more because we’ll need an odd
number for this next part now that we have our chain and – thirty inches or
seventy six centimeters by the way we are going to connect it to the other
side but right before we do that we are going to run our thumb along our chain
just to make sure that it is all facing one direction so that it is easier for
us to get into the next row and once when we know that it is all facing one
direction we’re going to insert our hook in through that first chain that we made
with a slip stitch so all that is is insert it into that first chain we’re
going to yarn over pull through everything once we have this we’re going
to need to do some counting and some measuring this is what we should have
once when our chain is all connected and as you guys can see I have went ahead
and put in some stitch markers and we’re just going to talk about this really
quickly so now that it’s all connected into this point where I did
my slip stitch this is going to be where our back is so I measured out slash
counted where I’m going to put my v-neck and I just made sure that I had the same
amount of loops on both sides coming from this point all the way down to the
middle if we stretch it out it is directly in the middle and that’s
perfect that’s going to be the bottom of our v-neck so I just made sure that this
side had the same amount of loops as this side and then once when I figured
out this that last measurement that we made for ourselves that went from the
bottom of our v-neck that I said was going to go up to where we had that
previous point at the edge of our collar bones I measured from there all the way
up there and then I put in that stitch marker and I did the same thing on the
other side and now we can go in with our row of single crochet with some
increases now that we’ve gotten those measurements out of the way we’re going
to go into the row of single crochet once we have this we’re going to chain
up one and into each of these loops that we have we’re just going to go in with
one single crochet so into this first loop we’re going to insert our hook
we’re going to yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two let’s do the
next one together a little bit more slowly into the next loop we’re going to
insert our hook yarn over pull through just one loop yarn over pull through two
loops and those are our first few single crochets we’re going to keep doing that
until we get to our first stitch marker then I’ll meet you guys back to show you
guys what to do we’ve made our way over to our first stitch marker and this is
our side stitch marker where they’re edge of our collar bonus once we get
here we’re going to take out that stitch marker and we’re going to go in with an
increase of two so that’s just two single crochet into that same loop so
there is one single crochet and two single crochet into the same loop this
helps our work curve so it can sit on our shoulder nicely and it’s going to
make our way down to our next stitch marker which is our V and we’re going to
be doing an increase of three in there but until we get there we’re going to
just be putting one single crochet into every loop going all the way down we are
now at our middle stitch marker and like I said we’re going to be doing an
increase of three into this middle loop so we’re going to take out this stitch
marker into this loop we’re going to be putting
a three single crochet so there is one single crochet two single crochet and
one more three single crochet and this forms our V once we have that we’re
going to be working our way back down our chain putting one single crochet
into every loop until we get to our next stitch marker we have now made our way
over to this last stitch marker that we have and this is the stitch marker
that’s on the other side of our collarbone so we’re just can take this
out and this is going to be the same one as the other side we’re going to go in
with an increase of two right here so two single crochet into that one loop
and then from here put one single crochet into every loop going all the
way back down our work and then we will meet the edge of where we first started
this single crochet row once when we get there we’re going to do a slip stitch to
connect this row together we’ve made our way all the way down our chain we don’t
have any more loops to go into and so we’re just going to slip stitch it into
the first loop that we made so into this first loop we’re going to insert our
hook into that loop yarn over pull through everything and we have now
attached with a slip stitch from here we’re going to chain up one and cut now
that we have this v-neck portion all finished out we’re going to be going
back in with a row of back loop single crochets just for a little bit of a
ribbing effect so what we’re gonna do from here is take our hook we’re going
to take a look at any one of these loops that we want to insert our hook into it
doesn’t matter which one we’re going to insert our hook in through that back
loop take our yarn insert that onto our hook pull through and then we’re going
to chain up one two secure and from here it’s just back loops single crochets so
into this next back loop we’re going to insert our hook yarn over pull through
one yarn over pull through two now we’re going to keep doing this until we get to
our increase that we have right over here you can tell that we have our
increase of two in the previous row we’re gonna stop right when we get to
this first single crochet and I’ll show you guys what to do from there well you
made it over to this first set of increase of two that we have in the
previous row and if you guys pull it apart just a little bit you guys can see
here’s the one here’s loop two into loop one we’re going to be going in
with another increase of two directly into that back loop so there is one
single crochet and there’s two single crochet making sure that both of them
are going in through the back loop and then we’re not going to be doing
anything into the next one we’re just going to be going down as more back loop
single crochets until you reach that increase of three or the bottom of the V
and then we’re going to be doing another increase in there as well we’ve made it
over to our increase of three in the previous row if you pull it apart you
can see here’s one two three this is the bottom of our V so into this first back
loop we’re going to be inserting our hook and just putting one single crochet
and into this second loop we’re going to be doing another increase of three into
here to maintain this corner so into the second loop we’re going to be going in
with three single crochet into that loop once we have that we’re going to go back
in with back loop single crochet putting one into every loop that we have until
we get to this other portion where we did an increase of two in the previous
row and then we’re going to do another increase of two into this set of two
just like how we did on the other side we’ve made it over to our next increase
of two and what we’re going to do is make it even on both sides and since on
the other side we did an increase of two on this first one we’re going to go into
this first single crochet that we have with just one single crochet and then
into this one into this increase of two we’re going to be going in with two
single crochets into that second loop and then from here we’re going to
continue to go down putting one single crochet into every back loop slip stitch
into that first loop and then we’ll get started on the body portion we now have
our collar all finished up so we can actually set this aside for now and
we’re going to start working on the body portion next first we’re going to have
to measure out from our underarm down to where we want this top to be and I’m
going to make a total chain of 11 inches or 28 centimeters now that we have our
chain what we’re going to do from here is start off by doing a row of half
double crochets so how we do that is blocking off that last loop we’re going
to do a chain up of two that counts as a half double crochet
going to prepare for a half double crochet insert our hook into that third
loop from the hook yarn over pull through we’re gonna yarn over pull
through all three loops that’s on the hook let’s do this together one more
time prepare for a half double crochet insert our hook into that next loop yarn
over pull through you should have three loops on the hook we’re going to yarn
over pull through all three loops then once we have that we’re going to put one
half double crochet into every loop that we have going back down our work but
we’re going to be doing an increase on that last loop so I’ll meet you guys
back so that we can do that together we made it to the end of our first row
of half double crochets and we’re going to be doing an increase into this last
loop so all that is is putting two half double crochets into that loop we’re
going to prepare for a half double crochet insert our hook into that loop
yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three and we’re going to be
doing that one more time into that same loop so let’s do it together prepare for
a half double crochet insert our hook into that loop yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through all three and that is our increase on this side and
this increase is going to help us build up to the shoulder portion that we will
eventually get to but for now this is what we’re doing and we’re going to be
switching out between a row of half double crochet and back loops single
crochets so let’s get started on the back loop single crochet row what we’re
gonna do from here is chain up one flip my work and then into this first loop
we’re going to be doing another increase but it’s going to be an increase of back
loop single crochets so into this first available loop we’re gonna go in with
one single crochet once we have that we’re gonna go in with another single
crochet and then from there go ahead and put one back loop single crochet into
every loop going all the way down your work once we reach the end we’ll do it
together but we’re going to chain up to flip our work and do half double
crochets going into the back loops going back down so we will meet each other
back once and we are done with this back loop single crochet row we’ve made our
way all the way down with our back loop single crochets and like I said we’re
going to be going in with a row of back loop half double crochets so in order to
work our way up to the next row we are going to be
– that counts as a half double crochet flip our work and then we’re going to be
going in with back loop half doubles so we’re going to prepare for a half double
into this first back loop that we have we’re going to yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through all three loops and that’s basically it we’re gonna keep
doing this all the way down until you get to that last loop and then we’re
going to be doing an increase into there but we can do that together once when we
get there and then I’ll talk to you guys about the rest of this top we’re now at
our last loop working into this back loop single crochet row with back loop
half double crochets and we’re just going to do an increase into this last
loop so from here you guys already know prepare for a half double crochet into
this back loop we’re going to be going in with one half double crochet and then
this is an increase we’re going to go in with another half double crochet and
then you guys guessed it chain up one full of our work and then this is going
to be a back loop single crochet row so just to start this off together we’re
going to insert our hook into this first back loop with one single crochet and
then two single crochet into that same loop and keep doing this all the way
down once we make it this to the end we’re going to chain up to flip our work
and work with back loop half double crochets and then we’re going to keep
increasing on this side until this portion reaches the front of our body
and then from there we’re going to make an increase that goes straight up to
reach our shoulders but I’ll meet you guys back once we have this little chunk
done and I’ll tell you guys my measurement in the next clip as well
right now all finished up with doing our underarm portion and what we’re going to
do from here is put this up to ourselves and from this corner that our hook is in
we are going to measure all the way up to our shoulder and once when we have
that measurement you’re going to make a chain that comes out to that number and
just to let you guys know I’m going to have a chain of two inches or 5
centimeters so once when we get here what we’re going to do is just chain up
whatever number we have we now have our chain that reaches all the way up to our
shoulder and what we’re going to do from here is see what row we’re gonna have to
do next so for me my row that I previously did
was a row of half double crochets so this row is going to be a row of
loop single crochets if you guys finished with single crochets you’re
going to do it in reverse you guys are going to do this next row with a row of
half double crochets but once when we have figured that out we are going to
block off that last chain I’m going to be doing a single crochet row so I’m
just going to chain up one I’m going to insert my hook into that loop that we’ve
blocked off or the second loop from our hook with a single crochet once we have
that we’re going to be putting one single crochet into every loop going all
the way down our chain and then once we get to the body portion we’re going to
be going back into our back loops so we’re going to stick together since
we’re almost to the body portion this is fairly easy just putting one single
crochet into every chain and we’ve finally made it down to our body portion
then once we get here I’m going to flip my work just a little bit just to turn
it so that our loops a line once we get here we’re going to continue going into
those back loops so go ahead and go in with a row of single crochet or half
double whatever row you guys are working on and then we’re going to keep doing
this until we have a portion that is blunt just like this so that it can
reach the tip of our collar well once we have this I’ll give you guys the
measurement and then I’ll show you guys how to attach it to the collar after
that I now have my SuperDuper tiny shoulder chunk and just to let you guys
know just this chunk is a total of just one inch or three centimeters and now
we’re going to attach it into the base which is our v-neck portion but right
before we do that as you guys can see I have this stitch marker in and the
stitch marker is just where we did our increase into the corner and I went
ahead and picked one loop it doesn’t matter which one since we do have two
loops for the increase I picked one made sure that I picked the same one for the
other side as well for whenever we do get to that but we have that done and
then once we have that we’re going to take what we’re working on insert it
into this loop attaching our shoulder chunk to the v-neck portion is super
easy what we’re going to do is insert our hook into that loop that we put a
stitch marker in we’re going to take that guy out and once we have that we’re
going to yarn over pull through everything on our
and now it’s attached and now we can go in with our continued back loop half
double crochet and back loop single crochets all the way down the v-neck but
within the first two loops of every row we are going to be doing a decrease
we’re now attached into our base and what we’re going to do from here is go
in with our next few rows so the next thing we’re going to do is take a look
at our base we’re going to take a look at the next available loop insert our
hook into that next available loop yarn over pull through everything so we’re
just slip stitching into that loop and then we’re going to be working into this
little shoulder chunk that we have right here once we have that we are going to
be doing a decrease into the first two back loops with a single crochet so
we’re going to insert our hook into that back loop yarn over pull through into
that next back loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three
and that is our back loop single crochet and then from here we’re going to
continue going all the way down with more back loop single crochets and then
we’re going to work our way back up with back loop half double crochets and then
I’m going to show you guys how to connect it into the base we’ve made our
way back down with our row of back loop half double crochets and we left the
last two loops so that we can do a decrease right before we get into our
base so what we’re gonna do from here is prepare for a half double crochet insert
our hook into that next loop yarn over pull through and then we’re going to
insert our hook into the loop right after that he ran over pull through we
should have four loops on the hook we’re going to yarn over pull through
everything and then once we have that for our half double crochet row we’re
going to be counting up two loops into our base so we’re going to count up one
two slip stitch into that second loop and now this row is all attached and
then we’re going to work our way up to the next row together all that is is
slip stitching up the next loop we’re gonna flip our work and then decrease
into the first two loops but this is a back loop single crochet row so we’re
gonna be decreasing with a back loop single crochet so we’re gonna insert our
hook into this loop yarn over pull through into the next back loop your
pull through yarn over pull through all three once we have that continue going
all the way down with our row of back loop single crochets basically we’re
still alternating between back loop half double crochet and back loops single
crochets the only difference is that we’re decreasing into the last two loops
that’s right next to the base and we’re attaching it into the base and we’re
going to keep doing that until we make our way all the way down towards the
bottom of our V and then once we have that we can do the other side and then
we are going to connect it all together we are back and we are ready to connect
both of our front pieces together and all that is is doing a row of outside
loops single crochets making sure that we’re going in through both panels that
we have so getting started on this outside loop single crochet row
connecting both of our panels is we’re gonna insert our hook into this first
outside loop that we have in the panel that’s closest to us and then in the
back panel we’re gonna insert our hook in through the back loop that we have
right there and then we’re gonna close it off with a single crochet let’s do
the next one together really quickly we’re going to insert our hook into the
front loop into the front panel and then in through the back loop into the back
panel and single crochet and that is it go ahead and keep doing this all the way
down once when you get to the end cut and tie and then we’ll be ready to do
the back panel we have just finished up doing the ribbing along this back
portion that we have and this is our seam that holds the entire front panel
together and then if we flip it over we can just take a look at the ribbing that
we love for ourselves this is the v-neck ribbing and then this is why we did the
outside loop single crochets along the inside so that it can match the front a
little bit better but now that we have this done we are ready to get started on
the back panel so all we’re gonna do is do this chunk that we have right here
this is the underarm portion that went from our underarm down to where we
wanted the bottom of the top to be and then we did art increases all the way
over and we’re going to do this plus this shoulder chunk making sure that
it’s all matches and then I’ll meet you guys back once we have all this done
we are back and now we have our underarm portion to our shoulder chunk I’ll
finish up and if you want to lay it on top it looks exactly the same but once
we have this now we’re just going to go along the entirety of the back portion
of our v-neck connecting it all together so what we’re going to do from here is
fairly simple we’re first going to take a look at this first available loop that
we have that’s right next to our shoulder chunk for the front panel and
we’re going to insert our hook into that next loop that we have and we’re going
to insert it with a slip stitch so we’re going to insert our hook right here then
yarn over pull through everything and now that we’re all attached we’re going
to take a look at our loops that we have so into this next available loop we’re
going to insert our hook yarn over pull through with a slip stitch and if we
take a look at our previous row it was a row of half double crochets so our next
row is going to be a row of back loop single crochets so we’re going to flip
our work and then we’re going to go in with back loop single crochets and since
this is the back portion we don’t have to do any decreases we’re just going to
go all the way down with back loop single crochets we’re going to chain up
to work our way back with half double crochets all the way back to our base
and when we’re back at the base we’re going to count up two loops slip stitch
into that second loop and that closes off the half double crochet loop and
then from there we’re going to slip stitch up the next loop and then go back
down with back loop single crochets so it’s basically the same thing that we
did for the v-neck but we’re not doing any decreases so this is a lot easier
but go ahead and keep doing that until we have worked our way all the way down
the entirety of the back portion of our v-neck we are back and we have made our
way all the way down the back portion of our v-neck and now I just need to make a
little chunk of our shoulder portion that we made on the front just so that
it can match and then we’ll attach it later but once when we get here it’s
going to be the same exact thing all we’re going to do is chain up one flip
our work and then go back down doing whichever row that we had to do next
going into the back loops and then from there we’re just going to make sure that
the measurement is the same as the front and then I’ll meet you guys back so that
we can do this under our more together we are back and we now have our
shoulder chunk that matches the front portion of our shoulder chunk and now
we’re ready to start doing this underarm portion and this is going to be fairly
easy the only thing that we have to do is see where we ended this row and then
all we’re going to do is put in a stitch marker where the underarm portion needs
to start and then from there we’re just going to work our way back down the way
that we were already going from the previous row now that we’re ready to get
started on this underarm portion what we’re going to do is take out this
stitch marker that we have and then we’re going to go in with the row of
whatever row we have next to do so my next row is going to be back loop single
crochets so I’m going to insert my hook into this back loop insert my yarn onto
my hook we’re going to pull through and chain up one two secure and then since
we’re going down we’re going to be doing decreases instead of increases so how we
do a decrease is we’re still going to be going into the back loops you’re going
to insert our hook in through the first available back loop yarn over pull
through and then into the next available back loop yarn over pull through we
should have three loops on the hook yarn over pull through everything and that is
our decrease on this side once we have that we’re going to go back all the way
down doing back loop single crochets once we make it to the end we’re going
to chain up to work our way back with half double crochet is going into the
back loops but leaving the last two loop so that we can do a decrease together we
have just finished up doing our underarm portion for our back section that we
have and if you guys want to take a look this should overlap exactly the same as
it would in the front and then what we’re going to do from here is just fill
in with a row of single crochet along the sides to close it up so the single crochet portion is going
to be exactly like how he did the front portion except we don’t have to go into
the outside loops so what we’re going to do since our hook is already into this
corner we’re going to insert our hook into the back panels corner we’re going
to yarn over pull through everything and chain up one two secure and then from
here we’re just going to go in with a single crochet so we’re into this first
available loop in the front panel we’re going to insert our hook into the next
available loop in the back panel we’re going to insert our hook into there and
then single crochet let’s do this again insert into the next loop into the next
loop into the back panel and single crochet and we’re going to keep doing
this all the way down and then once we make it to the end we’re going to cut
and tie and then we can get started on the sleeve tada
we are all done with this seam that we have along the sides closing up this
side of our shirt and what we’re going to do next right before we get started
on the sleeve is actually just connect this top shoulder portion that we have
so connecting the shoulder chunk it’s going to be pretty much the same way
that we’ve connected everything else except there’s no pretty loops for us to
go into so getting the started we’re first gonna
insert a hook into any one of the loops that we can find that’s closest to the
base making sure that we go in through the front panel and the back panel we’re
going to insert our yarn onto our hook pull through a chain up one to secure
and I’m going to do just a couple single crochets since my shoulder chunky isn’t
very long so I’m just gonna find the next loop ish that I can find insert
that into the front panel insert it in through the back panel single crochet
and I am actually just gonna do one more single crochet but this is going to be
easy we just have these corner loops to go into so into the front panel and also
into the back panel and single crochet and our shoulder chunk is now all
connected and the next thing that we have to do is just go under the row of
single crochet along the entirety of our armhole and then once we make it to the
end we’re going to connect with a slip stitch we’ve just finished up doing a row of
single crochet along our armhole and what we’re going to do next is actually
try this on to see how long we want our armhole to be so measuring from the
bottom of our armhole down to where we want the length of our sleeve to be but
remembering that we do have a cuff at the very end as well we’re going to take
that measurement and then make a chain that’s that link to get started on our
sleeve we’re first going to insert our hook and through any one of these bottom
loops it doesn’t matter which one and we’re going to start by just making out
a chain that comes out to the measurement that we need now that we
have our chain what we’re going to do next is super simple we’re just going to
block off that last chain we’re going to chain up to that counts as a half double
crochet and then we’re going to work all the way down putting one half double
crochet into every loop going back towards our base we’ve made our way all
the way down with a row of half double crochet and we left the last loop so
that we can increase together so it’s going to be pretty much the same exact
thing as we did for the front portion where our v-neck is instead of decreases
we’re going to be doing increases and we’re going to be doing these
increases all the way up until we get to this shoulder top seam that we have and
then we’re going to be doing some decreases going down the other way but
in order to do an increase on this side we’re going to put two half double
crochets into that last loop so there is one and there is two half double
crochets into that last suit that we have right next to the base we’re going
to take a look at our base and then we’re going to count up two loops so
we’re going to count one and two we’re going to insert a hook into that second
loop with a slip stitch and our half double crochet row is now all connected
and then in order to work our way up to the next row we’re going to slip stitch
up the next loop and you guys guessed it we’re going to go in with a row of back
loop single crochet but we’re going to maintain the increase that’s right next
to the base so we’re going to flip our work and then into this first available
back loop that we have we’re going to go in with a back loop single crochet
increase so into this first loop we’re gonna put one single crochet and then
we’re gonna go in to the same loop with another single crochet and then once we
have that go all the way down doing back loop single crochets once we work our
way back with our half double crochet row we are going to do another increase
at the end right next to the base and we’re gonna keep doing that all the way
up until we get to the seam that we have for ourselves right next to the shoulder
portion we’ve now made it to the top portion of our shoulder and once when we
get here like I said earlier we’re going to do some decreases going back down the
sleeve so that it can match the other part and all that is we’re going to
insert our hook into the first available back loop to work our way up to the next
row flip our sleeve over and then we’re going to start working on our decreases
now so I’m going to insert my hook into this first available back loop yarn over
pull through into the next available back loop pull through we should have
three loops on the hook you’re going to yarn over pull through everything and
that is our decrease for this row once we have that we’re gonna go all the way
down and start back single crochet row and then we’re going
to work our way back up with our half double crochet row remembering to
decrease into the last two loops just like how we’ve been doing with the
v-neck portion and then once when we have that we’re going to connect it all
together once we don’t have any more loops left so I’ll meet you guys back so
that we can connect it together we now have the other part of our sleeve all
finished up as you guys can see we don’t have any more loops to go into so the
only thing left to do is close it together so all we’re going to do is
insert our hook in through the front panel into the next available loop in
the back panel and single crochet and that’s it we’re gonna keep doing that
all the way down until we don’t have any more loops left but don’t cut and tie
because we have a little cuff to do at the end well you’ve made it all the way
down with our row of single crochet closing up our sleeve together and now
we’re going to work on the cuff but before we get started I’m going to
switch out to my five millimeter hook so that our cuff can cinch in just a little
bit more well once when we have switched it out all we’re going to do is insert
our hook once into every row that we have but our rows are going to be a side
half double a-side single so all we’re going to do is just put one single
crochet into each of those rows doesn’t matter which one it is once we make it
back to the end we’re going to slip stitch into that first loop we’ve made
it all the way around with our row of single crochet to get started with our
cuff but the only thing we have to do left is just going with a slip stitch so
into this next available loop it’s going to insert our hook pull through
everything and now this single crochet row is all finished up and the next
thing that we’re going to have to do is figure out how long we want our cuff to
be and then once we know how long we want
our cuff to be we’re going to go ahead and make a chain that comes out to that
length and once when we have our chain we’re going to go in with a row of slip
stitches so that our cuff can cinch in so all it is is blocking off that last
chain doing a chain up of one inserting our hook into that loop that we blocked
off or the second chain from our hook with a slip stitch and all a slip stitch
is is inserting into the loop yarning over and pull through everything on the
hook and we’re gonna put one slip stitch into every loop that we have in our
chain going all the way back down towards the base once we get to the base
we’re going to slip stitch in to the base so I’ll beat you guys back so that
we can do that together we’ve just made it all the way down with our slip stitch
row and what we’re going to do next is slip stitch it into the base so that we
can connect it all down so into this next available loop that we have into
the single crochet row we’re going to insert our hook into that next available
loop insert with a slip stitch so we’re going to yarn over pull through
everything and that connects this row and in order to work our way up to the
next row we’re going to slip stitch up the next available loop we’re going to
flip our work and then from here we’re going to go in to our slip stitch row
with back loop slip stitches which is the same thing just going into the back
loops and that will give us a ribbing effect that’s different than the one
that we have for the body but still very pretty and that’s basically it for the
sleeve we’re just going to keep doing this all the way down until we don’t
have any loops left and then we’re going to connect with a single crochet row
just like how we’ve been doing everything else but I’ll meet you guys
back so that we can do that together we have made our way all the way around
with our back loop slip stitches and the only thing we’re going to do for this is
just connect it with a single crochet row so that this concision
and then we can start working on the other side so all that is is we’re going
to take a look at the next available loop that we have into the front panel
we’re going to insert our hook into that loop and then go into the same loop that
we have into the back panel insert our hook into that back loop and then we’re
going to single crochet it together and that’s basically it it’s the same way
that we’ve been doing everything else so I’ll meet you guys back once when we
have gone all the way down we’re gonna cut and tie and then go ahead and do the
other sleeve so this is what we should have once when we have both of our
sleeves all finished up and the next thing we’re going to do is go in with
our bottom border and our bottom border is actually going to be exactly the same
as our cuff but instead of going in with a 5 millimeter hook we’re gonna go back
to using our six-and-a-half millimeter hook so that it’s not as tight and then
also instead of making our bottom border just one long piece that goes all the
way around we’re gonna be doing it in two sections we’re going to figure out
where our side seams are in the front we’re going to do a bottom border for
that cut and die and then do the same thing on the back so that there’s a
little slit on the sides getting started on our bottom border you guys can start
for the front or the back it really doesn’t matter we’re just gonna need to
figure out where our side seam is first where one of them is and once we know
where that is we’re first going to go in with a row of single crochet so once we
do that we’re going to insert our hook into that loop pull through we are going
to chain up one to secure and then from here we’re just going to be putting one
single crochet into each side half double crochet one single crochet into
each side single crochet one single crochet into each side half double sorry
and then another into each side singles basically one into every row and we’re
going to keep doing that all the way down until we reach our other side seam
and then we’re going to do it the bottom border together here now being it to the
end with our row of single crochet and what we’re going to do from here is to
figure out how long we want our bottom border to be and I’ve already figured
out mine and I’m just going to make a chain that comes out to about 4 inches
now that I have my chain what we’re going to do is block off that last chain
chain up just one extra and go in with a row of slip stitches just like how we
did our cuff and we’re just going to go down our chain putting one slip stitch
into a root then we’re going to connect it into the base you just put one slip
stitch into every loop that we add in our chain and what we’re going to do
next is insert our hook into the next available loop with a slip stitch so
this is our next available loop we’re just going to insert our hook into that
loop to finish off this row and then to work our way up to the next row slip
stitch up for the next loop flip our work and then do more back loop slip
stitches and continue to do this all the way down until you reach this other seam
that we have on this side once when you reach this last loop we’re going to cut
and tie and then do the same thing that we did here on the other side we
finished up doing it the entirety of our bottom border the front and the back
piece and the last thing that we have to do for this section is do our little
side detail that we have getting started on the side detail what we’re going to
do is insert our hook into any one of these corner loops and set our yarn onto
our hook pull through we’re going to chain up one two secure and then for
this first row we’re just going to be going in with a single crochet row that
goes along this first bottom border we are going to do a decrease in the middle
so that we will have a middle loop and then going back up this other bottom
border that we have so from here we’re just going to be going in with a row of
single crochet until we get to this last loop on this side and then we will do a
decrease in to the middle together we’ve made it down one side of our side detail
and we have just one loop left for us to go into and we’re going to be doing a
decrease of three so that we can make our way over to this other side so we’re
going to do is insert our hook into this last loop that we have on this side
we’re going to yarn over pull through and then from here we’re going to take a
look at the seam that we have along this side and we’re actually going to insert
a hook in through that last loop that we have in our seam and we’re doing that
because we don’t have any other loops to go into that’s directly in the middle
but we’re just going to take a look right here insert our hook
to that last same loop we’re going to yarn over pull through that one and then
we’re going to turn our work just a little bit and take a look at our other
bottom border insert our health into this first available loop that we have
on this side yarn over pull through one we should have four loops on the hook
but once we have that we’re going to yarn over pull through everything that’s
on the hook and that is our decrease and then this is going to be where we start
working our side detail into but once we have that we can go down with the row of
single crochet and once we make it to the end we’re going to chain up one and
cut and then we’re going to do the detail together now that we have a row
of single crochet going along the entirety of our V that we left ourselves
next we’re going to go in with the border but first we’re going to need to
do a little bit of measuring you’re gonna want to figure out how many of
these sections that you guys want I’m going to have three sections so I’ve
measured what I have right here and turns out that I have a total of about
three inches right here so I’m going to go in with about one inch per section
now that we know that I’m going to get started we’re going to take a look at
this bottom loop that we have the one that is right in the middle and then I’m
going to measure up one inch and then I’m going to insert my hook into that
loop which is this one insert our yarn onto our hook pull through and then from
here I’m gonna make a chain that comes out to whatever measurement that we have
but doubled so like I said I have a measurement of one inch so I’m going to
make a chain of two inches once we have our chain we are going to insert our
hook into this opposite and that we have but making sure that we’re going into
the same loop as this side so we’re going to do that we’re going to insert
our hook with a slip stitch and this is our first section once we have this
we’re going to measure up another inch and then I’m going to slip stitch up
that inch we have just slip stitched up another inch and what we’re going to do
from here is take a look at this first chain that we made the one that goes
across we’re going to take this chain and we’re going to double it because
this needs to come to a point and then come back down
to this chain now we have this chain what we’re going to
do is flip our work we’re going to single crochet it into this first chain
that we use to get across I’m just going to go into that big gap with a single
crochet and then we’re going to do the same thing that we did here one more
time now that we have this second chain for our second section we’re going to
insert our hook into the same loop that we have this first chain into but on
this side once we find that we’re going to insert with a slip stitch and this is
what we should have so far and the last thing that we have to do is slip stitch
all the way up until we don’t have any more loops to go into and then we’re
going to finish it off with a single crochet row that goes all the way across
now that we slip stitched all the way up we’re just going to go across with a
chain and then single crochet and in order to do that we’re just going to
take the same measurement that we have from the first middle point up to where
we went in with our first chain and for me that was an inch so I’m going to make
a chain that comes out to an inch or about three centimeters once we have
that we’re going to flip our work and then into this first big loop that we
made for ourselves we’re gonna go into that big loop with a single crochet then
once we have that chain out another inch into this next big gap single crochet
and we have just one more to do to connect to this other corner once we
have that slip stitch into this corner and then we’re going to go in with a row
of single crochet once we have that we’re gonna chain up one flip our work
and then just go all the way across putting one single crochet into every
loop that we have once we make it to the end we’re going to chain up one end cut
and then once we have that we’re going to do the same thing on the other side
we’re all finished up with doing our side detail and this next part is
optional but I really like it so all I’m gonna do is go in with a chain that goes
across our v-neck just to give it a little bit more something and so that I
can match our side detail that we just did but this is going to be completely
up to you you guys are just going to pick two points on each side and then
from there you’re going to make a chain that
goes from one point going across to the next and making sure that it’s taught so
that once when you wear it it doesn’t wrinkle and then once when you have that
you will be pretty much all done and from there the only thing that you guys
have to do is weave in all of your ends now that we’re done weaving in the ends
this is our finished top I’m super happy with how this Phoenix turned out it’s
like the classic v-neck that we all know and love but it has a little twist on it
