In parts 1 and 2 we made the back and front panels. Here is the final part, part 3, we will sew the pieces together and add the sleeves.

CONSTRUCTION

Lay both panels together, with the right side facing in (there isn’t technically a right side, just which ever you like best)

Using stitch markers, mark where you want to sew the shoulders closed. I marked approximately 20 stitches in from each side, leaving 25 stitches open in the middle for the head. Using a long piece of yarn and your yarn needle, sew the pieces together across each shoulder with a whip stitch. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Mark where you want the armholes to be (I tried the sweater over my head to see where I wanted them) I marked about 11 rows down from the top. Using a long piece of yarn and a yarn needle, sew the pieces together with a whipstitch, leaving a space open at the top for armholes. Fasten off, weave in the ends. Turn right side out.

SLEEVES

SLEEVES

Join yarn at the bottom of one armhole,

Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around, (work approximately 2 sc in the side of each dc), join to first sc with sl st

Round 2 – 10: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

In the next rows the sleeves will start decreasing

Round 11: ch 3, *dc in 5 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Round 12: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Round 13: ch 3, * dc in 4 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Round 14: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

NOTE: The next round decreases the sleeves one more time, if you don’t want the sleeves any smaller around, skip to round 16

Round 15: ch 3, *dc in 3 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to around, join to first dc with sl st

Round 16: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Repeat round 16 to row 23, (25), [27], {29}, <31>

Or until sleeves are desired length, Add or take out rows as needed

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Repeat for the second sleeve.

And you’re done!! Again, thank you SO MUCH for joining me!
