Vintage Inspired Versatile Crochet Sweater | Tutorial DIY


for this project any category four a yarn
will do but here’s what I used a skein of caron one pound in soft pink another
in and red heart Super Saver in white the
rose and white are used as accent colors so long as you have a half a skein you
should be fine as for tools of five millimeter hook an optional seven
millimeter hook scissors stitch markers and a tape measure we’re using four
stitches for this project and they will be as followed chain double crochet slip
stitch and single crochet this tutorial is for a size small but you can adjust it
for your size and we explain how to in the video so let’s get started to start
off the sweater we’re first gonna grab our category 4 yarn make a slipknot and
we’re going to make a chain that comes out to the measurement of the neck hole
that we want mine will be a little wider so I’m gonna make a chain of 36 inches
or 91 centimeters we now have our chain and the next thing we’re going to do is
actually connect it to the first chain that we made in order to make a circle
so what we’re going to do is run our thumb along one side of the chain just to
make sure that it’s not twisted so that our next row is a lot easier to do I’m
just going to run our thumb all the way down and then once when we have that
you’re going to insert our hook into that first chain that we made we’re
gonna do a slip stitch so we’re gonna prepare for no we’re just gonna yarn
over then pull through everything that’s on the hook and now we have our circle
and then what we’re gonna do from here is a row of double crochet with an
increase in to every third so we’re going to first chain up three this
counts as a double crochet then into this first loop that we have we’re going
to put two double crochet we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and go into
this first loop with one and then prepare for another double crochet go
into that same loop with another and that is our increase and then into the
next two loops that we have we’re gonna go in with one double crochet so prepare
for a double crochet we’re putting just one into this next loop we’re gonna
prepare for another double crochet put one into the loop after that and then
now that we’re at our third loop we’re going to go in with another double
crochet increase so prepare for a double crochet insert
prepare for a double crochet go into that same loop because this is our
increase and this is what we should have let’s do this again one more time
since we’re right after the loop that just had our increase we’re going to
prepare for a double crochet double crochet just once into that next loop
prepare into the loop after that with a double crochet and now we’re ready to do
another increase so prepare for a double crochet one double crochet into the next
loop prepare one double crochet into the loop after that so we’re having an
increase one double crochet one double crochet increase we’re going to continue
along with that pattern all the way around
once we get to the end we’re going to connect into this first chain up of
three with a slip stitch but I’ll meet you guys back so we can do that together
we have just made our way all the way across with our row of double crochet
increase but increasing into every third and what we’re going to do now is
connect it into this first chain three with a slip stitch but I will also be
switching out my colors and if you guys are not go ahead and just do a regular
slip stitch but if you guys are let’s do this together so we’re going to count up
one two three insert your hook into that third chain we’re going to yarn over
pull through just one loop and then from here we’re going to attach our second
color and then pull through everything and then once we have that we can cut
our original color and then we’re going to tie the tail ends together and then once we have that everything is
nice and attached and then from here we’re just gonna go in with a row of
thicker net so all that is is chain up of three first one two three this counts
as a double crochet once we get here we’re going to prepare for a double
crochet insert our hook into the same loop that we are in with a double
crochet pull through pull through and that is our first set of thicker net and
from here we’re going to chain up a 1 prepare for a double crochet and we’re
going to count out three loops here’s one two three insert your hook into that
third and we’re gonna go into that third loop with two double crochets so there’s
one prepare go into that same loop with another double crochet let’s do this
again together we’re going to chain out one prepare for a double crochet we’re
gonna count out three loops one two three
insert your hook into that third with a double crochet and then prepare for a
double crochet go into that same loop with another double crochet and we’re
going to keep doing this all the way around you just made our way around with
our row of thicker net and now we’re going to connect it with a slip stitch
and also I’m going to be switching out my colors if you guys are not go ahead
and just go in with a slip stitch like I said earlier but we’re going to connect
it into this first chain of three so we’re going to count up one two three
we’re going to insert our hook yarn over pull through and then once we have that
we’re going to grab our next color insert that onto our hook and then pull
this through everything then we’re going to cut our first color
and tie the two tail ends together and we are ready to go and start the next
row so what we’re going to do from here is we’re going to start doing a little
bit of an expansion just so that it can increase a little bit so what we’re
gonna do is start off with a chain out of five one two three the first three
count is a double crochet chain out an extra two so five in total and from here
we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and then we’re just gonna be
going and see each of these gaps that we made for ourselves in between our
thicker net loops so once we have this we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet
like I said we’re gonna go into this first gap with a double crochet and this
is our first net let’s do the skin a couple more times we’re going to chain
out to prepare for a double crochet into this next gap put one double crochet one
more time we’re going to chain out to prepare for a double crochet into this
next gap one double crochet and then we’re going to keep doing this all the
way around we’re going to connect with a slip stitch into this third loop once
when we get all the way around and then we’re going to start our next row with
our next color but I’ll meet you guys back before we get all of that started
we are all the way around with our row of knit and like I said we’re going to
connect it with a slip stitch and then also switch out our colors again so from
here we’re going to count up three into this first chain five that we did one
two three in sooner hook into that third yarn over pull through we’re going to
grab our next color insert that onto our yarn and pull through everything and
then once we have that we’re going to cut the original color and then tie the
two tail ends together and then we’re ready to start up the next row and then
once when we get here we’re gonna go in with the row of single crochet and Shell
and we’re going to be going into each of these gaps that we just made for
ourselves so into this first gap that we have right next to our hook we’re gonna
go in with one single crochet and then once we have that we’re going to do a
shell into this next gap so we’re gonna prepare for a double
crochet we’re gonna go in with three double crochet all in to that same gap
so there’s 1 2 3 once we have the first half of our shell we’re going to chain
out to prepare for a double crochet and then go into that same gap with another
three double crochet just to close off this shell so here’s 1 2 and then 3 and
then into this gap that we have right after our shell that we just made we’re
gonna go in with 1 single crochet so this is what we should have a single
crochet into the first gap shell single crochet let’s do all this together one
more time into this next gap we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and put in
a shell so all that is is three double crochet there’s two there’s three double
crochet chain2 prepare for a double crochet and then three more double
crochet into the same gap so there’s one ish two and then three and then into the
gap that we have after this a single crochet and we are going to keep doing
this pattern all the way around and then once we get to the end I will show you
guys how to connect it we have made our way all the way across with our first
row of single crochets shells single crochet shell and now we’re going to
switch out our colors again and then start up our next row so we’re gonna
insert our hook into this first single crochet yarn over pull through insert
our new color yarn pull through cut the original and then tie the two tail ends
together and now we’re ready to start up with our
next row so once when we get here since we’re already into our first single
crochet loop what we’re gonna do is chain up three this counts as a double
crochet from here we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and then we’re
gonna insert our double crochet into this shell gap that we made for
ourselves and we’re gonna go going to be going in with another shell so we’re
gonna insert our hook into this first gap with three double crochet so there’s
one two and three and then we’re gonna do another shell so like before we’re
going to chain out to prepare for a double crochet and then into the same
shell gap putting another set of three double crochets there’s one two and
three and then once we have that we are going to prepare for a double crochet
and in the previous row we obviously have this single crochet in between our
shells so in this single crochet loop we’re going to be putting a double
crochet so we’re already prepared for a double crochet we’re going to insert our
hook into that single crochet loop with one double crochet just like that we’re
going to do this again together so prepare for a double crochet
into this next Shell gap we’re gonna be putting another shell so three double
crochet chain two and then into the same gap three more double crochet there’s
one two three all into that same gap and then once we have that we are going to
prepare for a double crochet and then as you guys can see this is our single
crochet in the previous row so we’re going to insert our hook into that loop
with one double crochet and then we’re going to keep doing this all the way
around we will meet back together so that we can connect it and then switch
out our colors if you guys are switching out your colors and then we’re going to
do the rest of the rows after that we are all finished up with our second row
of shells so what we’re gonna do is connect it just like how we’ve been
connecting we’ll do this a couple more times together where we’re going to
count up one two three because our first double crochet was a chain up of three
insert our hook we’re going to yarn over it just through one loop grab our next
color insert that onto our hook and just pull through everything and then cut the
original and then tie the two tail ends together and now that we have everything all
gussied up for us now we’re going to do the same thing but now we’re going to
start increasing so that this can expand over your chest
so in the previous row we did a chain up of three so we’re going to do another
chain up of three one two three this always counts as a double crochet and
then we’re gonna do a chain up of one so we’re gonna have a total of four and
once we have that we’re going to prepare for a double crochet into this Shell gap
put another shell so you guys already know what it is we have three double
crochet into that shell gap chain to prepare for a double crochet and put
three more double crochet into that same gap that we were just in to finish off
the shell and three and then once we have this this is where we’re going to
start increasing or expanding whatever you guys want to call it so once when we
get here we’re going to do a chain out of one and then prepare for a double
crochet insert our double crochet into this double crochet loop that we have in
the previous row and then once we have that chain one and then put a shell into
this next shell so for this row we’re doing just a chain one in between
everything and then for the real after this we’re going to do a chain two row
after that chain three but we’ll meet each other back so that we can get the
gist of it and then we’ll have at it ourselves but I’m all done with this
next shell so we’re just going to do this next double crochet together and
then we’ll do the rest from there so we’re going to chain out one once we
have this next Shell prepare for a double crochet double crochet into this
next double crochet loop we’re going to chain out another one and then do
another shell into the next shell and so basically it’s the same pattern just
with a chain one in between everything and I’ll meet you guys back once when we
make our way to the end and then we will connect to switch our colors and then
continue expanding from there we just finished up doing our third row of
shells and we’re going to connect switch out our colors and then we will speak a
little bit about the next few rows that we will be doing so we’re going to count
up three just like how we’ve always been
doing yarn over pull through the first loop going to lay our yarn over the hook
pull through everything cut the original and then tie the two tail ends so this
is what I currently have from one end all the way down to the bottom of a
shell I have four inches or 10 centimeters and then this is actually
the length that I need because these ends reach the tip of my shoulders but
if you guys need to keep going I will show you guys how to do that right now
so really quickly if you guys need to continue to expand this piece this is
what we are going to do we’re going to chain up three this counts as a double
crochet and then since in the previous row we have a chain one in between like
I said before we’re going to start expanding so we’re going to add two
chains so we’re gonna have a total of five chains for this first bit and then
once when we have that we’re going to prepare for a double crochet go into
this first shell with another shell so we’re going to do three double crochet
that’s one two and then three once when we have that we’re going to chain out to
prepare for a double crochet put three more double crochet into the same gap
and then now is where our increase comes in just like how we started so in the
previous row we have a chain of one in between everything that we have so we’re
gonna do a chain of two prepare for a double crochet put one double crochet
into this loop and then once we double crocheted into that double crochet row
we’re going to chain out another two put a shell into the shell gap so let’s do
this together together again so that’s one double crochet two three chain out
two and three more double crochet into this same shell gap so here’s one two
and three and then once we have that we’re gonna do this increase together
one more time we’re gonna chain out to prepare for a double crochet double
crochet into this double crochet loop chain out another two and then do our
next shell and then you guys are going to continue to do this until the shells
reach the tip of your shoulder and with the previous row so from this first row
of double crochet down to this row I actually have the link that I need I
just showed you guys how to do this row so that you guys knew how to continue to
increase but once when we have that length we’re going to go in with a row
of chains going straight across and I will show you guys how to do that right
now I have just taken apart everything that I just showed you guys because I
don’t need that extra row but if you guys have more rows that is totally fine
but once when you guys get to the tip of your shoulders we’re going to do a chain
that goes straight across our work so that we can actually attach the body
portion to this chest piece that we have so what we’re going to do is chain up
three this counts as a double crochet and then we’re going to continue with
the increases that we have so for me this is going to be different for
everyone but for me I’m going to take a look and see how many loops I have so we
had this chain one in between so we have one and then we’re going to count these
three double crochet loops that we have as well so one two three four so I’m
going to do a chain out of four plus one extra because we are still going to do
our increases so I’m going to chain out five on top of this chain three that we
already have so here’s one two three four five then once when we have that we
are going to do a single crochet into this shell gap so here’s one single
crochet just to connect it and then we’re going to do the same thing and
then do a double crochet into this double crochet loop so like I said
before I have one two three four available loops here so I’m going to add
one more for the chain that we’re about to do so I’m going to do a chain up of
five one two three four five then once when I have my chain I’m going to
prepare for a double crochet insert my double crochet into this double crochet
loop that we have been going into with another double crochet let’s do this one
more time together I have one two three four loops here so I’m
going to add an extra for the chain one two three four five you’re going to
single crochet into this shell gap and then once we have that we’re going to do
another chain so one two three four five prepare for a double crochet so we’ll
crochet into this double crochet loop and that is our pattern that we’re going
to do once when we are ready to connect it to the body portion so go ahead and
do this all the way around I will show you guys how to connect it and then
we’re going to do the body portion after that now that we are all finished up
with our row of chains we’re going to connect it just like how I’ve been
connecting it so what we’re going to do is count up three chains one two three
into that third we’re going to do a slip stitch but I am going to be switching up
my colors one last time so we’re gonna hear an over pull through just one loop
grab our next color insert that onto our hook pull through cut the original color
and then tie the tail ends together once we have this the last row that
we’re gonna do before we start doing the body portion of the sweater is just do a
row of single crochet around the entire bit of chains that we just did so this
is gonna be a super simple we’re gonna insert our hook into this first loop and
we’re gonna go in with a simple single crochet and since the chain row that we
just did was an increase rail we don’t need to do anything fancy no increases
no decreases we’re just going to go into every loop with one single crochet once
we make it all the way around we’re going to connect with a slip stitch
switch out our colors again and then we will go from there we’ve made our way
all the way around with our row of single crochet and now what we’re gonna
do is just connect it into the first single crochet that we did with a slip
stitch cut and then we’re gonna start working on the body portion so since we
are here with our row of single crochet as you guys can see this is our first
single crochet that we did we’re gonna insert our hook we’re going to yarn over
pull through everything on the hook so pull through this guy and pull through
this guy and so once we get here we’re going to chain up one and cut this is
what we should have once when we are all finished up doing our chest piece that
we were just working on and as you can see I have folded mine in half putting
the seam or every place where we did our slip stitches on this top corner so that
you can’t really see it and then once we get here we’re also going to want to put
this on and then put in our stitch markers because we’re gonna start
working on the body portion we’re going to do the sleeves in later but the place
where you guys want to put in your stitch markers is right where your
underarm is because obviously we need to add in the sleeves later but go ahead
and mark those off and then just to let you guys know from one side I measured
straight across this way I have a total of 13 inches or 33 centimeters and then
you’re also going going to hunt to measure out and see how long you want
your body portion to be I’m going to make mine
10 inches because we are going to have a bottom band as well but once when we
have all that information we can get started on the body portion and then
also really quickly before we get started doing the body portion I am
so switching out my hook to a seven millimeter hook this is optional I’m
just switching it out for a bigger hook so that the body portion won’t be as
tight so the stitches can flow just a little bit more but now we can get
started with the body portion we are now all ready to get started on the body
portion so what we’re gonna do is take out one of the corners of our stitch
marker we’re going to insert our seven millimeter hook this is optional you
guys can continue to use your five millimeter hook if you guys want but
we’re going to insert our hook right where our stitch marker was we’re going
to take the body portion or the body color that we’re gonna do insert that
onto our hook we’re going to pull this through and then we’re going to start
off by making a chain that is the length that we want our sweater to be minus a
few inches because we will be adding a bottom border and like I said mine is
going to be ten inches or 25 centimeters but go ahead and make that chain I’ll
meet you guys back once when we have that all finished now that we have the
chain for the body portion now we’re going to go in with our first row of
double crochets for the body what we’re gonna do is block off that last chain
we’re going to do a chain up of three prepare for a double crochet and then
into that loop that we’ve blocked off or the fourth chain from the hook we’re
gonna go in with a double crochet and then we’re gonna prepare for another
double crochet and go into every chain that we have putting just one double
crochet going back towards the chest detail that we just made and then we’re
going to connect with a slip stitch but I will show you guys how to connect it
once when we get there we have double crocheted all the way down our chain and
what we’re gonna do is connect it to the base with a slip stitch and before we
connect it to the base we’re going to want to make sure that we’re working
towards the other stitch marker that we have so if we take a look this way our
stitch marker is right here we’re going to want to be working into this portion
because this is where the body is going to be but once when we have that since
we just did our double crochet row we’re going to count out two loops not
including this loop that we are currently in we’re going to count up one
and two insert our hook into that second with a slip stitch so we’re gonna yarn
over pull through everything on the hook and now it’s all attached we’re going to
do this again in order to work our way up to the next row so we’re gonna slip
stitch up the next two loops so here is one and here is two once we have that
we’ve worked our way up to the next row so we can flip our work now we’re gonna
prepare for a double crochet and then for the body portion we’re gonna be
going into the back loops because we want some ribbing so into this first
back loop we’re going to insert our hook and do a double crochet let’s do this
one more time prepare for a double crochet go into this back loop with a
double crochet and we’re going to continue to do this all the way down
when we get to the end we’re going to chain up three and work our way back
with more back loop double crochets and then I’ll meet you guys back once when
we get to the base so I can show you guys how to attach it just one more time
we are now at the end of our row where we meet our base and we’re just going to
connect it one more time just to show you guys so we have double crocheted
into the very last loop and what we’re gonna do from here is count up two loops
here is one into insert your hook into that second with a slip stitch and
that’s how we connect that low that row and next one we’re going to slip stitch
up the next two so we’re going to slip stitch up one and two and from here it’s
gonna be the exact same thing flip our work prepare for a double crochet and
then go in with back loop double crochets and we’re going to keep doing
this pattern all the way until we reach the other stitch marker that we have and
then we’re going to do the same thing for the back portion but I’ll show you
guys how to do that one more time once when we get there so go ahead and do
this part and then I’ll meet you guys back this is what I have once when I
have finished up doing my bottom portion for the body only on one side and what
we’re gonna do from here is actually try this on again and then let me flip this
over and then we’re going to put in some stitch markers in the back for the same
exact spot but for the back side because we don’t want anything to be uneven and
then we’re gonna go in and do the exact same thing
so we’re going to pick one of the loops we’re going to start off by making a
chain that is the same length as the chain that we have in front we’re going
to go in with the row of double crochet once we make it to the base we’re going
to count up two loops slip stitch into that second loop and then we’re going to
slip stitch up another two loops in order to work our way up to the next row
and then do back loop double crochets back so it’s exactly the same as we did
the front side and then we’re going to do that all the way down and then once
we make it to the end over here we’re going to cut and tie and then we’re
going to start working on the little side panels that we’re going to have so
go ahead and do that and then I will meet you guys back once we have all of
this done as you guys can see we’ve been a little busy we have actually finished
up doing our front panel and our back panel they are exactly the same and next
I told you that we were going to cut and tie next we’re going to start working on
this Super itty bitty side panel that we’re going to do that’s going to fit
right underneath our underarm you’re gonna take a look at this side
panel that I have on this one side first because I’ve already done one side so I
can show you guys but it’s basically just the same thing a row of back loop
double crochets but it doesn’t reach all the way to the top because we still need
some space for your arm and so I went ahead and measured out where I needed
this to end so I put this on and then I measured out from the base which is this
guy right here all the way down to where I need this to start and I have a total
of 2 inches or 5 centimeters so what we’re going to do from here we’re going
to do this next one together we’re going to insert our hook into this bottom
corner making sure that we’re going in through whatever loop we have to go into
so this is a back loop we’re going to insert our yarn onto our hook you’re
gonna pull through chain up 3 this counts as a double crochet and then from
here we’re going to do a, we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and
then we’re gonna go in putting one double crochet into every back loop
going all the way down until we reached that 2-inch mark or 5 centimeters
however you’re measuring it and I already have mine marked off so I’m
going to keep going until I get to this marker I’m going to cut and tie and then
we’re going to be doing this for besides that we have so do this three
more times now that we have our side panels all finished up on one side as
you can see here’s one on one side here’s one on the other now we’re going
to connect it using a row of single crochet so this part is going to be
fairly easy we’re just going to take our two sides and we’re going to sandwich
them together we’re going to take our hook insert it into this first corner
loop and then also into the second corner loop that we have for this back
panel we’re going to grab our yarn and make a slipknot we’re going to insert
that onto our hook and then once when we’re right here we’re going to pull
through chain up one to secure and from here we’re going to go down with the row
of single crochet making sure we going through the front panel and the back
panel at the same time so it can all close up so how we do that is we’re
going to insert our hook into the next available loop in this front panel we’re
going to take a look at this back panel insert our hook into the next available
loop in that guy and then we’re going to single crochet let’s do this a couple
more times together so into the next loop of this front panel and then into
the next loop of this back panel single crochet and we’re going to keep doing
this all the way down until we can’t go down any more until we get to the edge
of this row and then we’re going to cut and tie and then if you guys already
have your other side done you can go ahead and do that on your other side as
well now that we have our side panels all attached next we’re going to go in
with a row of single crochet but only along the bottom of this arm portion
just so that it’s easier to go in with our sleeve next so how we’re going to do
that is we’re going to insert our hook into this first loop that we have that’s
connected to the body portion to the base and we’re going to go into that
same loop that already has something in there and we’re doing that just so that
it can be a little bit more seamless once when we finally go in with a sleeve
once we have that we’re going to pull this through we’re going to chain up one
two secure then from here we’re going to go in put in one single crochet into
every loop going all the way around and then once we reach the base on the other
side of the sleeve we’re going to cut and tie
once we made our way all the way around the bottom with our row of single
crochet now we can start working on the sleeve and the sleeve is basically going
to be the same thing as the body portion we’re going to try this on and we’re
going to measure out and see how long we want our sleeve to be minus a few inches
because we are going to add a cuff at the bottom as well but I went ahead and
measured out the link that I wanted and I am gonna make a chain of 14 inches or
36 centimeters so I’m just gonna show you guys where I start and then the rest
is going to be exactly the same so I’ll let you guys have at it from there
but I’m just gonna insert my hook into one of these bottom single crochet loops
it doesn’t matter which one just try to get it as centered as possible so that
once when we connect everything our seam is on the bottom but where I’m just
going to insert my hook insert my yarn onto my hook pull through and I’m gonna
start off by making my chain like I said mine is 14 inches or 36 centimeters and
the ones we make it to the end we are going to chain up three double crochet
all the way back down and then we’re going to connect to the base just like
how we’ve been doing for the body so we’re gonna count up two loops slip
stitch into that second loop and then we’re going to slip stitch up the next
two loops in order to work our way up to the next row and then do back loop
double crochets all the way back down and then we’re gonna keep doing that
going back and forth until we make it all the way around and we don’t have any
more loops to go into and then we are going to connect with a row of single
crochet like how we did this piece but I’ll meet you guys back once when we get
there so go ahead have at it and I will meet you guys back we have just finished
up going all the way around with our sleeve and like I said before it was
just rows of back loop double crochets connecting into the base the same way
that we did the body portion and we kept going until we didn’t have any more
loops at the bottom and now we’re going to connect it by doing a row of single
crochet that goes in through both the front and the back panel of the sleeve
and once we make it to the end now we can start working on the cuff portion
but I’ll show you guys how to connect it again but this is also like how we
connected the side portion as well we are now taking a look at our sleeve and
we’re going to connect it like I said and
just a really quick reminder it doesn’t matter whether if you guys end here
where the underarm is or down here where the wrist is it’s going to be the same
no matter what but all we’re going to do is insert our hook into this first
available loop that we have into this front panel and then into the next
available loop that we have into the back panel and then all we’re gonna do
is single crochet the two panels together and this is exactly the same
way that we did the sides do this again into the next loop insert your hook into
the next loop into the back panel insert your hook and single crochet and I know
that you guys already have this so go ahead and do this all the way down and
then if you are switching out your colors like I am go ahead and cut and
tie if not then don’t I don’t meet you guys back we have now connected all the
way down our sleeve with a row of single crochet making sure that the front and
the back panel were connected and now everything is looking pretty good and we
were using our seven millimeter hook but we’re actually going to switch that back
out for our five millimeter hook or whatever recommended hook size you have
for whatever yarn size are using and then we’re going to finish off with the
cuff so now that we have this guy ready all we’re gonna do is go in with the row
of decreasing single crochet just to go around the cuff because we want this to
be tight so I’m going to insert my hook into where this first side double
crochet is I’m gonna make a slipknot insert that onto my hook and from here
I’m going to pull through and chain up one two secure and then I’m not going to
count this as anything so into the same loop I’m gonna be putting another two
single crochet so this is one and then this is two and then like I said we’re
going to be decreasing into this row and since these are side double crochets you
guys know that we always go in with two single crochets into each side double
crochet but since we’re decreasing we’re going to be going into every other loop
with just one so since we did two single crochet into this first loop into this
next loop we’re gonna be doing just one single crochet as soon as a couple more
times together into this next so I double crochet that we have we’re
gonna insert our hook and then we’re gonna be putting two single crochet and
then we’re gonna skip over to this next one you’re gonna be going in with one
single crochet one more time into this next one to single crochet and then into
the next just one and we’re gonna keep doing this all the way around to help
our sleeves cinch in a little bit and then we’re gonna be going in with one
more row of decrease and then we’re gonna work on the cuff portion so I’ll
meet you guys back once we’re in once we and we are done with this one row we’ve
made our way all the way around with our first row of decreasing single crochet
and we’re just going to slip stitch it together in order to close off this gap
that we have so all we’re gonna do is find this first loop insert our hook and
then pull through everything on the hook and then once when we have this this is
going to be up to you this doesn’t cinch in quiet enough for me I want this
ascension just a little bit more but if your first row is perfect for you then
go ahead and stop it right here but since I’m going to be doing one more
we’re going to be doing that together all I’m gonna do is chain up one and
then into the next nine loops we’re going to be putting just one single
crochet into each so let’s do this together here’s one two three four five six seven eight and nine and then into
the tenth we are going to be doing a decrease so what that is is inserting
our hook into the next loop yarn over pull through and then inserting our hook
into the loop after that pull through and then we’re gonna yarn over and pull
through everything on the hook so we’re going to be decreasing into the tenth
we’re gonna do this together just one more time
so into the next nine we’re gonna be putting one single crochet here’s one
two three four six six and a half six seven
eight and then nine is our last one and then we’re going to be doing in decrease
so into this next loop insert yarn over pull through into the next loop yarn
over pull through yarn over pull through all three and if you guys are decreasing
with me go ahead and do this all the way around once we make it to the end cut
and tie and then we will be switching out our colors if you’re switching out
your colors go ahead and cut and tie but I’m going to switch them out so I’ll
meet you guys back one so we get there and then we’ll work on the cuff now that
we have made it all the way around and cut and tied now I’m just gonna be going
in with the row of single crochet a regular row single crochet all the way
around just to give our cuff a little bit extra something so all we’re gonna
do is take our five our same five millimeter hook insert it into any one
of these loops insert our next color yarn if you guys are switching it out
onto our hook pull through and this is going to be extremely regular we’re
gonna be going in putting one single crochet into every loop once we make it
to the end we’re going to slip stitch it together and then we’re going to start
working on our cuff from there we’ve made our way all the way around with our
first row of our cuff color and now we’re gonna start working on the cuff
cuff but you’re gonna want to try this on and figure out the length that you
guys want your cuff to be if you guys want this to be longer or shorter that
is all dependent on you guys but I’ve already measured by now and I’m gonna
make a chain that comes out to five and a half inches or fourteen centimeters
because that’s the link that I want my cuff to be I now have my chain length
and what we’re going to do is go in with a row of slip stitches so we’re first
gonna block off this last chain that we did we’re gonna chain up one and then
into this chain that we blocked off or the second chain from the hook we’re
gonna go in with a slip stitch so all that is is inserting your hook we’re
going to yarn over and pull through everything that’s on the hook let’s do
this one more time together into this next loop insert your hook yarn over
pull through everything on the hook and then we’re going to continue doing these
slip stitches all the way down once we get to the base we’re going to connect
it to the base with another slip stitch and then
keep going from there so he’ll meet you guys back on so we get there this is our
first row of slip slip stitches going down the chain that we just made and we
are finally at the base and we’re going to connect it with a slip stitch kind of
like the way that we’ve been doing the sleeve or the body portion but a little
different because they’re smaller so what we’re gonna do is take a look at
the base and then we’re gonna insert our hook into the next available loop so
we’re not gonna go into this guy because this is where our chain is in we’re
gonna insert our hook into the next loop with a slip stitch and then once we have
that we’re gonna slip stitch up just one loop in order to work our way up to the
next row we’re gonna flip our work and then we’re gonna be going in with back
loop slip stitches this is given this is going to give us more ribbing but
different than the double crochet one that we’ve been doing for the entire
body so far so what we’re gonna do is insert our hook into this first back
loop we’re going to yarn over pull through everything on the hook and then
this is going to give us ribbing that looks like this kind of looks like you
knit it but you didn’t so let’s keep doing this for a little bit together
just so we get the hang of it we’re gonna insert our hook into this next
back loop yarn over pull through everything into the next back loop yarn
over pull through everything and we are going to continue to do this until we
reach the end we’re going to chain up one and then continue doing back loop
slip stitches and then once we get to the base we’re going to connect it with
more slip stitches but I’ll meet you guys back just one more time so we can
go over it together we are now all the way back down to the base with our next
row of back loops slip stitches and we are going to oh wait we have one more
back loop there we go and now we’re going to connect it into the base so
just one more time into this next available loop insert our hook yarn over
pull through everything that is a slip stitch and then just to work our way up
to the next row we’re going to do one more slip stitch into the next loop so
we’re gonna insert yarn over pull through everything flip our work and
then go in with a row of back loop slip stitches and continue to do this all the
way around and once when we don’t have any more loops
one two we’re going to connect them together and I’ll meet you guys back so
we can connect it together together this is what we have once we made it all the
way around with our back loop slip stitches and we have no more loops to go
into we’ve made up to the other side and what we’re gonna do is single crochet it
together just like how we’ve connected everything together so far so let’s just
go through this super quickly we’re gonna insert our hook into the next
available loop yeah and then we’re gonna go into the next available loop on the
back panel or the other side and then single crochet it’s do this one more
time into the next available loop here and then into the next available loop on
the other side and single crochet and then we’re gonna keep doing this all the
way down and then once when we have that we’re going to cut and tie because we’re
actually all done with this sleeve and then I already have my other sleeve
already finished but go ahead and do the exact exact same thing that we did on
this side but on the other side and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can
finish this up by doing the bottom border and yeah I’ll meet you guys back
we have now finished up doing both of our sleeves and like I said the next
thing that we have to do is just do a little bottom border along the bottom of
the body portion and the bottom border is actually going to be the exact same
thing as we did for the sleeve so I’m gonna be switching the colors and it’s
going to match the cuff so all I’m gonna do is go in with a row of decreases so I
couldn’t remember the name it increases another row of decreases and then I’m
going to do the same type of cuff which is back loop slip stitches for the
bottom border so let’s get started on the decrease we are grabbing the bottom
of the body portion so that we can get started on the bottom border and if you
guys want to leave it flowy like this go ahead you are more than welcome but I
want mine to be a little bit more cinched in so what we are going to do is we’re
gonna insert our hook into any one of these side double crochets it really
doesn’t matter because we’re going to be coming all the way around anyways we’re
gonna insert our hook into any one of these side double crochets in sir
our next color we’re going to pull through and then we’re gonna chain up
one to secure and the ones we have that we’re not gonna count this first chain
but we’re gonna go into that same side double crochet loop that we’re in with
two double crochet so there’s one and then there’s two but once we have that
we’re gonna go into the next side double crochet loop with just one single
crochet exactly the same way that we did because if I can get this there we go
and then into the one after this we’re going to be going in with two single
crochet and we’re going to keep doing this all the way around and then once we
make it to the end we are going to slip stitch this row together and then we’re
going to chain up one and then for this next row sorry for the next row we’re
going to do another row of decrease so single crochet into the first nine loops
and then decrease into the tenth just like how we did for the cuff and then
I’ll meet you guys back once we have that done we have just finished up doing
the first few rows of our bottom border and next we’re gonna do the same thing
that we did for the sleeve we already have our first row of decrease into all
these side double crochets which was to single crochet into one side double
crochet one single crochet into the next and then we kept alternating like that
and then we went in with our second row of single crochet where we decreased
into the tenth and then did that all the way around and then now we’re about
ready to go in with our regular row of our border color but if you guys aren’t
switching out your colors then you guys don’t need to do this one this row is
optional but since I am we are going to do it anyways but this is going to be
super simple so all I’m gonna do is insert my hook into any one of the loops
it doesn’t matter which one make a slipknot insert that onto my hook and
from here we’re going to chain up one and then all we’re gonna do is put one
single crochet into every loop going back all the way around once we make it
to the end we’re going to slip stitch into this first single crochet that we
made but don’t cut and tie because we are going to start doing our cuff right
after that or bottom border but it’s gonna be the same thing so I’ll meet you
guys that we’ve made it all with our row of single crochet where we
didn’t do any decreases and now we’re gonna start working on the bottom band
which is the exact same thing as the cuff all you guys have to figure out
from here is to see how long you guys want your bottom band to be I’ve already
measured my now and I would like for mine to be 4 inches or 10 centimeters
depending on where you’re at so I’m gonna go ahead and start off by making
that chain once we have that chain what we’re gonna do from here is block off
that last chain that we just did we’re going to chain up one extra and then
we’re gonna insert our hook into that chain that we blocked off or the second
chain from the hook with a slip stitch if I can Ariel and then I’ll slip stitch
is just insert it into the loop yarn over pull through everything that’s on
the hook let’s do this again one more time
into the next loop yarn over pull through everything and then we’re gonna
keep doing this all the way down and we’re going to slip stitch into the next
available loop once we get into the base and in order to work our way up to the
next row we’re going to slip stitch just one loop up and then we’re going to go
in with back loop slip stitches and keep doing that all the way around until we
make it to the other side where we don’t have any more loops and then we are
going to put it together with a row of single crochet so go ahead and do that
and then I’ll meet you guys back once when we are almost done ok this was a
doozy but we’ve finally made it all the way around doing our back loop
slip stitches and we don’t have any more loops in between our first section and
our last or just the beginning of the end and the last thing that we have to
do is just single crochet together and this is the exact same way that we’ve
been single crocheting everything else together so we’re just gonna do it
really quickly because I’m sure you guys already know what you’re doing but a
really quick tip that I have is just make sure that wherever this seam is on
this side since we’re folding it over this side the seam is obviously gonna be
facing out just make sure that’s the rest of the sweater is facing out as
well make sure that the seams are facing out so that once when you flip it inside
out all the seams are matching each other
but I’m sure that you guys already knew that but it’s a really quick tip but
once then we are ready ready ready what we’re gonna do is insert our hook into
this first available loop insert our hook into the next available loop on the
other side single crochet let’s do this one more time insert our hook into the
next available loop in the front next available loop in the back single
crochet and then we’re going to keep doing this all the way down once when
you get to the end we’re going to cut and tie we have just finished up
attaching our bottom band with a row of single crochet and we are all done now
the last thing that we have to do is just weave in all of our ends we have
woven in our ends and this is our finished piece as you guys can tell this
