Top Crochet Sweater
This throw-on-and-go cropped cardigan is a joy to make and to wear. As you work top to bottom, you'll learn double crochets in the round, color changes, and a new ribbing technique that rows across on right side rows only. For a flattering fit, I chose to keep the front closed but the sleeves open. At the bottom edge, I used a flat yarn for a better stitch definition, and this allows for a longer sweater than traditional ribbing.
Checks Crochet Sweater
This boxy, color block design lets you mix and match the colors you love. The interesting texture is achieved using half double crochet stitches in horizontal loops and single crochet stitches in back loops to create a faux ribbing. The sweater is worked side-to-side to give it a more sophisticated look than the usual front and back styles. The crochet check pattern is easy to follow but adds subtle texture to this stylish sweater. If you want to spice it up, throw in some contrast strands of yarn when you switch colors.
