Sweater Crochet Along Part 2

December 5, 2017

It’s time for part 2 of our Sweater Crochet Along! Thank you so much for joining me in making this sweater. In part 2 we’ll be making the front panel of the sweater. You’ll find it’s much easier than the back panel! The pattern for the back panel was part 1 of this CAL (you can find Part 1 of the CAL HERE). I’d love for you to join my facebook group (>>HERE<<) and share your progress. Next Tuesday I’ll post part 3 and we’ll sew the sweater together and make the sleeves.

If you want to have the entire pattern at once, this pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download in my Etsy shop or Ravelry Shop
