Introduction: Do you love those crocheted garments that are made all in one piece with just a little bit of sewing to finish the garment off? Well this is one of those.



Construction details: Begin at the bottom front band, work your way up to the sleeve placements, make a chain break off yarn,  make another chain and the first row of the sleeve, then work across the chest part of the sweater and the other chain for the 2nd sleeve. When you come to the neck and head area, you will replace the st’s with a length of chain for about 4 rows, and then continue without the chain lengths working across the sleeve, back and sleeve part. Continue along until the sleeves are finished, then break off yarn and join to the body only and finish the back of the sweater. The side seams are then sewn and the lengths of chain in the neck and head area are gathered and sewn in place, giving this sweater a little bit of extra decoration, or you can even try to hide them completely!
