Make this Easy Mesh Big-T Crochet Sweater!

posted in: All Crochet Patterns, Clothing | 0
This is an easy method to use to design your own sweaters.  Using this system, you can crochet a sweater in ANY SIZE…. and also you can use ANY STITCH you like!   Watch the video tutorial,below, to see how!
You could work the entire sweater in a “pebble stitch”,double crochet stitches, or single crochet stitches. So that means you can make a winter weight sweater, or something for the summer such as this open weave sweater, for people like me, who no longer feel ok showing their arms… (once age sets in, there is no keeping those youthful arms, … oh my).
So you can now become your own designer, and make sweaters in lots of colors and lots of stitches!  I hope you enjoy this lesson on sweater making!

  1. Adult small: Chain a cord that measures 58 inches, or reaches from wrist to wrist.

All other sizes, chain a cord that reaches across the front of the body from wrist to wrist.

  1. Double crochet in the 3rd stitch from the hook, and each stitch of the chain.
  2. Chain 3 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch only, double crochet in

each stitch across the row.

  1. Repeat step 3 until the work is as long as needed to reach from the shoulders to

underarm, (for the width of the sleeves), then continue to work only the body.

  1. Determine how many stitches are needed for the body of the sweater by

holding the work in front of the body from underarm to underarm across the chest, or use your

chest measurement.  Divide the remaining number of stitches by 2, and allocate those

stitches on each side of the body, for the arms.  See the video for a better demonstration.

Slip stitch to the underarm of the sweater, then chain 3, and work across the

front, stopping at the opposite underarm. (Working only the body section now.)

  1. Chain 3 and turn, double crochet in each stitch across the body of the sweater.
  2. Repeat step 6 until the sweater is as long as desired, fasten off.
  3. Make another identical section.
  4. Stack the 2 sections, mark an opening for pulling the sweater on over the head. (The opening

should be 22 to 24 inches, as large as needed to pull over the head.)

  1. Attach the 2 sections together with a row of single crochet stitches to form a seam, (see the

video for a more thorough explanation).  Weave all yarn ends into the finished work.
