Join yarn to the bottom of one of the armholes

Row 1: ch 3, dc evenly around the armhole, join to first dc with sl st

Row 2 – 18: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Repeat for other sleeve.

Sew on your button about row 16 about the 6th dc from the top.

  1. Love all your patterns I’m want to make a poncho with a cuff I’m new to crochet but know all basic stitches. I’m tall can you suggest a pattern please.

  2. In row 53 is it dc then chain one repeated across the row. Meaning both stitches are repeated across the row? Would u share the yarn
    details? This pattern is great. Thank u so much for sharing! I love it!! I really like it in the blk yarn you chose. Was it expensive to make? Cl means cluster stitch? How did u make your cluster stitch?

    1. Hi!

      There is no ch 1 in row 53. It’s dc in the stitches and ch 1 spaces from the previous row.

      I used Loops & Threads Charisma in Black. The yarn is pretty reasonable and is on sale regularly at Michael’s

      CL – cluster (*yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops* repeat 2 more times, yarn over, pull through all loops on hook)

      Hope this helps!

  3. This is my first time crocheting this pattern, when I read and do the CL rows it confuses me because you say sc (single crochet) yet when you go to the amount and look at the corresponding size, it say you should have 23 CL and 46 dc, where are the sc? I’m hoping its just a typo and should have said dc (double crochet)

  4. Hello, i like ur pattern if i will use medium worsted yarn an 6hook, i could use same sizing.? How much yarn un yards for size medium/large. Tnx

  5. Hi …. love the pattern already started on it , I’m using the charisma yarn in off white . Will Any number 5 bulky yarn work ?

  6. Ooh just found this on Pinterest .. Charisma yarn on sale Michaels — It was meant to be – LOL!! I can’t wait to make it, Thank you for sharing 😊

  7. I’m confused on the cluster. Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over- it says pull thru 2 loops but I end up with 3 loops. What am I doing wrong?

  8. I’m new to crocheting and I found this beautiful sweater & I was reading all the comments and wanted to say your so sweet and patient with us and I wanted to say thank you you have no idea how much that means and thank you for the free pattern I don’t have money to buy patterns so it’s a double appreciation will never forget that this is my first sweater thank you so much and I pray that you and your family have a blessed holiday season
