Crochet Striped Sweater | Tutorial DIY


for this project any category 4 yarn will work
but I used a skein of red heart Super Saver jumbo in gray Heather and white
and caron one pound in pale royal blue as for tools a 5 millimeter hook 6
millimeter hook stitch markers scissors and a tape measure we’re using three
stitches for this project and they will be as follows
chain slip stitch single crochet this tutorial is for a size small but
you can adjust it for your size and we explain how to in the video so let’s get
started getting started on the sweater we’re first gonna grab our category four
yarn make a slipknot grab our 5 millimeter hook and we’re
gonna start off by making a chain for our collar but we do have to make sure
that it fits over our head as well and just to let you guys know I’m gonna make
a chain of 22 and a half inches or 57 centimeters now that we have our chain
we are now going to connect it to the first chain that we made but before we
do that we’re just gonna run our thumb along one side making sure that it’s not
twisted and we’re doing that so that the next row is easier for us to do well
once we make sure that it’s not twisted we’re gonna insert our hook into this
first loop with a slip stitch so we should have two loops on the hook we’re
going to yarn over pull through two and now we are all connected this is what we
should have once when we have connect our work with a slip stitch and next
we’re going to grab our stitch markers and do some stitch mark placing so the
places that we’re going to do it is actually into the four corners that we
have and don’t worry this is the neckband but it won’t stay a square I
promise we’re just doing this for future reference but what we’re gonna do is
just the easiest way is to place our finger on top of where our stitch marker
is and all I’m going to do is just pull all the way down and basically it place
a stitch marker in the halfway point which is right here let’s do one right
here and then from here we’re going to pull so that these two meet in together
so that we can have these two marks right here so we’re going to put one up
here and also one down here and then once we have this go ahead and count out
our loops in between make sure that they are even if not then go ahead and adjust
but this is just the easiest way that I figured how to do it and then now we’re
ready to do the next part now that we have our stitch markers in the next
thing we’re going to do is go into the row of single crochet all the way down
until we get to the stitch markers we’re going to be doing an increase of two
into each of them and also right where our slip stitches we didn’t put a stitch
marker there but it’s kind of cuz it’s easier to see
anyway so we’re gonna keep doing that all the way around so first off once
when I get here we’re going to chain up one and then we’re gonna insert our hook
into this first loop with a single crochet super easy we’re gonna keep
doing this until we get to our first stitch marker and then I’ll show you
guys how to do our increase from there we’ve made it over to our first stitch
marker and what we’re gonna do we’re gonna take it out for now but we are
going to put this back so that it’s easier for us to do the rest of our work
but into this next loop we’re gonna go in with two single crochets so there’s
one and there’s two into that same loop and put our stitch marker back in there
and that’s basically it we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down so put one
single crochet into every loop until we get to the next stitch marker put an
increase or two in there put the stitch marker back and then same thing over to
this guy and then once we get to the end which is where we slip stitched
everything together we’re gonna be putting one more increase but I’ll meet
you guys back once when you get here so we can do this one together we’ve made
it all the way around with a row of single crochet making sure that we did
an increase right where our stitch markers are and we put back our stitch
markers and we’re about to do our last increase as you guys can see we have our
last loop right here so all I’m gonna do is put an increase into this guy there’s
one there’s two and now I can connect it to the first loop that we made for our
single crochet row but right before we do that just like how we did the chain
we’re just gonna make sure that this is all facing one direction so making sure
that it’s not twisted but one so we know that we’re gonna insert our hook into
this first loop with a slip stitch and once we have that we’re going to chain
up one and cut this is what we should have once when we have finished doing
our first row of single crochet that went all the way around with some
increases in it as well and the next thing we’re gonna do is take these side
stitch markers that we have and we’re going to move it about an inch backwards
or roughly three centimeters so that our back portion that we have of our collar
can remain a little bit more blunt so that it resembles a t-shirt we have just
moved our stitch markers back about an inch or three centimetres and I have
also off-camera went ahead and did our shoulder chunk
that we have just so you guys have a visual and we’re going to do the next
one together right before we get started on doing this shoulder chunk we’re first
going to need to try this on and then we’re going to measure from our side
stitch markers that we have and we’re going to measure out towards our
shoulder tips and we’re going to keep that in mind because that’s going to be
the measurement that we need to make our chain with I’m coming to you guys from
the future because I completely forgot to mention that we will be switching our
hook for our six millimeter hook as well and once we have that measurement all
we’re going to do is insert our hook into where our side stitch marker is
insert our yarn onto our hook pull through and we’re going to start off by
making a chain of whatever measurement you have I have three and a half inches
or nine centimeters once we have our chain what we’re going to do from here
is block off that last chain that we just did chain up one extra and then
we’re going to go into that chain that we blocked off with our thumb with a
slip stitch so we’re going to insert our hook into that second loop we’re gonna
yarn over pull through everything on the hook let’s do the next one one more time
a little bit more slowly into this next available loop insert yarn over I’ll do
everything on the hook and we’re going to keep doing this all the way down and
once we get to the base we’re going to slip stitch into the base but we’re
going to be going into the same loop that we are currently in so I’ll meet
you guys back so that we can attach it together we’ve now just put one slip
stitch into every loop and into this same loop that we inserted our chain
into we’re going to insert into that loop with another slip stitch just to
close off this row and now we’re going to start working on one half of our
shoulder chunk so once when you get here we’re going to be slip stitching up the
next two loops in our base so we’re going to slip stitch up one and also
slip stitch up two once we have that we’re going to flip our work and then
there’s going to be a corner loop that we can kind of see in between the two
slip stitches that we just did it’s this loop right here we’re going to go into
that loop with three double crochet prepare for a double crochet go
into that corner loop with one double crochet two double crochet and three
double crochet once we have that we are going to count up this next chunk that
we left ourselves this slip stitch chunk we’re going to count up one two loops
into that second loop we’re going to attach it with a slip stitch and then
once when we have attached this first double crochet chunk that we have the
rest of this is going to be single crochets with increases into every other
row so let’s do the next few rows together just you guys can get a hang of
it into this next available loop that we have we’re going to slip stitch into
that loop to work our way up to the next row flip our work and then this first
row that we did we did not do an increase so we will be doing an increase
into this row our second row into this first available loop that we have we’re
going to be going in with two single crochet so there is one and then into
that same loop go in with one more single crochet put one single crochet
into the next loop and then we have just one more loop left in our work we’re
going to be increasing into there as well so all the increased rows we’re
going to be increasing once into the beginning and then once at the end with
just an increase of two so into this last loop we’re gonna be putting one
single crochet and two single crochet once we have that we’re going to slip
stitch it into this next available loop yarn over pull through with a slip
stitch and we now have two rows and we’re just going to do the next two
together because I’m going to show you guys what it looks like when we don’t do
an increase and also when we switch out our colors as well so starting up this
next row we are going to insert our hook into that next available loop pull
through with a slip stitch that’s how we work our way up to the next row flip our
work once we have that this is going to be an odd numbered row this is our third
so no increase just go all the way across putting one single crochet into
every loop and then we will connect with a slip stitch once when we get to the
other side of our base which is right now
into this next available loop insert yarn over pull through everything and
the ones when I have this if you guys are switching out your colors go ahead
and cut and tie I will be doing that and then I’ll meet you guys back once when I
have my secondary color in hand we now have our secondary color and we are
ready to go but a quick tip that I have right before we get started is if you
guys are switching out your colors once when you are ready be sure that you’re
holding your work face up so make sure that the part that you want to be shown
so the pretty side is faced up towards you and make sure that it’s not upside
down because we do have some special loops to go into so that it doesn’t look
messy on the top part and once when we are ready we’re going to see this next
available loop that we have into this part insert our hook insert our yarn and
pull through and this next row that I am going to be going into it just so
happens to be an even-numbered row so we are going to be doing an increase and
like I said before and increases just to single crochet into the first loop and
to single crochet into the last loop so really quickly let’s do this together
into this first available loop let’s go in with an increase of two single
crochet one and there is two almost two and then once we have that we’re gonna
be working our way all the way down putting just one single crochet into
every loop and then we will be doing another increase once we get to the end
of this row as well we are now at this last loop we’re going to be putting one
single crochet and two single crochet into that last loop once we have that
we’re going to find this next available loop in our base insert with a slip
stitch and once we have this we’re going to
continue doing this all the way down you guys can switch out your colors whenever
wherever you guys want but I am gonna meet you guys at the end of this next
row just so I can show you guys how to do our special stitches that I just
mentioned we are now ready to connect this next row that we have with our
secondary color and this special stitch is just so that we don’t have our base
color sticking out once when we do our slip stitches into this portion of our
chain so what we’re going to do is we’re actually going to be doing a slip stitch
but we’re gonna be going into it through the back so let’s do this together
instead of going in through this way like we normally do we are going to go
behind our work make sure that our hook is faced towards us and then we’re gonna
insert our hook like we normally would once we have that we are going to yarn
over pull through everything on the hook and this is one of them this is how we
end off this row and then we’re going to do the same thing so that we start up
the next row so we’re going to go behind our work make sure our hook is facing us
slide that through if we can there we go and once we have that we’re going to
yarn over pull through everything on the hook and this is how we make sure that
our base color doesn’t stick out through our single crochet because if we didn’t
this is what it would look like and this is not what we want so now that we have
had knowledge go ahead and keep doing this until we have made our way all the
way down our chain that we made for ourselves and then we’re going to do the
same thing on the other side of our chain but I’ll show you guys just how to
start it off once when we get there we have just finished up doing this first
shoulder chunk on this side and now we’re just going to finish it off by
doing the exact same thing that we did here but on this other side and I’m just
going to show you guys how to start it off and then I’ll let you guys do the
rest on your own but all we’re going to do is take a look at our base and count
up two stitches so here’s one here’s two insert our hook into that second loop
insert our yarn onto our hook pull through once we have that we’re going to
automatically prepare for a double crochet then go into that loop that our
chain is in as you guys can see it’s right here with three double crochet
just like how we started off this side so here is one double crochet two double
crochet and then three double crochet and then once we’re done with this we’re
going to count up two loops here’s one here’s two into that second loop we’re
going to insert our hook yarn over pull through everything and that is how we
start off doing this portion and now that we have this we can go ahead and do
the same exact thing that you guys did here once you make it to the end cut and
tie and then do the same same thing that we just sit here on the other side and
then I’ll meet you guys back this is what we should have once when we have
both of our little shoulder chunks finished up and the next thing that
we’re going to have to do is take a look at this front portion that we have the
front portion is going to be the longer side and we’re going to need to figure
out where our middle loop is and it doesn’t matter if you guys just have one
min elute or two we’ll go ahead and put a stitch marker into there and then
we’ll get started on this next portion this is what we should have once when we
have finished up doing both of our shoulder chunks and we’re going to
ignore this because I went ahead and did this off-camera but we’re basically just
going to start working down from the shoulder chunk down this chain that we
have until we get to about a loop or two away from this middle loop that we have
so that we can start working on the body portion getting started on this
beginning body portion what we’re going to do is just go in with a row of single
crochet coming from the bottom of this shoulder chunk that we have going all
the way down towards the base and once when we get to the base we’re going to
be doing an increase but into every fifth row so we’re going to do is just
insert our hook into this loop pull through we’re going to chain up one two
secure and I don’t like to count this guy so we’re going to go into that same
loop with a single crochet and this is going to be our first loop and then once
we have that we’re just going to be putting one single crochet into every
loop going back down this work that we have going
towards the base and then we will increase at the end together we’ve made
our way down all the way down to this last loop that we have and what we’re
going to do is do an increase of two single crochet into that last loop so
there’s one and there’s two once we have that we’re going to insert
our hook into the next available loop that we have in the base with a slip
stitch then once we have that we’re going to work our way up to the next row
slip stitch up the next loop flip our work and then we’re going to be going
into every single crochet loop that we have going all the way back down once
when you reach the end we’re going to chain up one and then work our way back
and then like I said earlier we’re going to be increasing into every fifth row so
as you guys can see this is the first one we came down increased we’re going
to go up one this is row two three four and then when we come back again
increase again so I’ll meet you guys back once when we have our next increase
and then we’ll do that together and imma let you guys have at it this is what we
should have once we have both of our sides all finished up and what we’re
going to do from here is go in with a row of single crochet just going
straight across everything that we have including this chain all the way over to
this other side and that’s going to be completely regular no increases no
decreases we’re just going to be doing that until we reach our underarm so that
we can make a little chunk for our armhole and then we’ll continue from
there well all we’re gonna do is insert our yarn pull through a chain up one to
secure and I don’t like to count this last one so we’re gonna go into the same
loop with another single crochet and this is my first loop and then once we
have that keep going down with single crochets until we get the link that we
need I will tell you guys in the next clip the link that I have and then we’ll
go along from there this is what I have so far once when we have gone from where
we finished right down here all the way down until we got to our underarm and
just to let you guys know this little chunk that I have is about 2 inches or 5
centimeters but this is going to be different for everyone so keep that in
mind but whenever we finally reached our underarm on the sides all we’re going to
do from here is just add a little chain on both sides of our work and then we’re
just going to single crochet across keeping up with our
color pattern that we’re doing and then this is going to be the length of the
sweater so super easy peasy let’s just get this started and then we’ll go on
from there right before we get started we’re going to need to try this on and
see the link that we needed from this corner piece that we have all the way to
our side and I have a total of three inches or eight centimeters so what
we’re going to do is make a chain and then connect it to this piece that we
have so I’m gonna go ahead and start off by making my chain and once when I have
my chain what we’re gonna do is take our work insert our hook onto this corner
I’m going to pull through with a slip stitch and then from here all we’re
gonna do is chain up one and single crochet all the way across and then once
we make it to the end we’re going to make another chain that is exactly the
same length as we have on this side and then once we have that we’re going to
chain up one and then work our way back with single crochets and that is going
to be the majority of our sweater for the front portion so I’ll actually meet
you guys back once when I get to the end of this row so that we can do the end
chain together and then we’ll have at it from there I made it all the way down
with this first single crochet row and now like I said we’re just going to make
a little chain that hangs off the side the same length as this side and then
we’re going to go back down with single crochets so let’s do that chain right
now now that we have our chain we’re going to block off this last chain do a
chain up of one extra then we’re going to insert our hook into that second loop
from our hook or the loop that we blocked off with our thumb with a single
crochet and then we’re going to single crochet all the way down including all
the way through the body and all the way down pass this chain as well and then
once we get to the end chain up one and then single crochet back and you guys
can maintain your color whatever you guys are doing with this and I’ll meet
you guys back once we have the majority of this portion finished up we are now
all finished up with doing our front body portion and that portion comes from
this underarm chunk that we made all the way down to the bottom and I have a
total of 15 inches or 39 centimeters and the next thing we’re going to do is
start on the back and it’s going to be pretty similar to the front
we’re basically just going to go from one triangle tip all the way to the
other triangle tip with just single crochets and we’re going to keep going
back and forth like that maintaining our pattern that we have all the way up
until we have the same amount of rows as when we started doing our side underarm
chunk and then from there we will do another extension so that our underarms
can reach reach each other on the sides and then that’ll be it but let’s do the
first row of this portion together and then we’ll let you guys do the rest on
your own so like I said this is going to start off the same way that the front
portion started off all we’re going to do is insert our hook into this first
loop that we have at the tip of our triangle you’re going to pull through
chain up one to secure and then we’re going to go into that same loop ignoring
this first loop this counts as our first single crochet we’re going to be going
into that one once we come back but from here we’re just going to be putting one
single crochet into every loop that we have until our triangle meets the neck
portion and then we’re just going to do a decrease but only into this one row
that we’re into so we’re almost there so we’re going to stick with each other
really quickly we’re going to stop just one loop right before we get to the back
portion so we’re right here this is our one loop right before we get to the back
and we’re just going to do a decrease so we’re going to insert our hook yarn over
pull through and then into the next available loop that we have into the
back insert pull through and now we should have three loops on our hook from
here we’re going to yarn over pull through all three and we’re only doing
that for this row so go ahead and keep going all the way down until we reach
the same spot on the other side and then we’re going to do the same thing we’ve
now made it over to the last loop that we have in the back portion and now
we’re going to do another decrease into this last loop and into the first loop
that we have in our triangle so let’s insert our hook yarn over pull through
reach all the way over to this next loop in our triangle yarn over pull through
here’s three loops on our hook we’re going to yarn over pull through all
three and from here we’re just going to continue going all the way down with
single crochet and once we make it to the end we’re going to chain up
for my work and go back down with more single crochet and we’re going to keep
doing that all the way down until we reach this shoulder chunk and don’t
forget to maintain your pattern and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can
do this underarm portion again together we’ve just finished up doing our upper
back portion and what we’re going to do next is the same exact thing that we did
for the front so I won’t bore you guys too much with the details we’re just
going to do a quick run-through of once when we get here we’re going to cut and
tie and then we’re going to start off by making a chain that is the same length
that you guys have on this side and then from here we’re going to single crochet
all the way across until we make it to the end and then make the same chain
length extending out towards this way once we have that chain we’re going to
chain up one and then single crochet back in from there we’re just going to
keep doing rows of single crochet back and forth making sure that the color
patterns match up because we do need them to match up and we’re going to keep
doing this until we have the same link that we have in the front and then I’ll
meet you guys back we are all finished up with our front panel and our back
panel and the next thing that we’re going to do is go in with a single
crochet row that goes in all the way up to the side so that we can cinch this
all in together but we are going to leave a slit and this is going to be a
little bit different because I’m going to show you guys how to do it with a
different technique that allows you to hide in all of these pesky ends as well
we now have our hook into where we want our seam to start and as you guys can
see it is going in through the same loop on both sides you guys can tell by the
colors that I have so once we have that we’re in this gray color so I’m going to
insert that gray color onto my hook we’re going to pull through and then
from here we’re going to chain up one to secure it in and this part is going to
be the same for everyone it doesn’t necessarily have to be the next loop
that you’re going into it just depends on where you’re going to go into with
your next color so it could be now it could be later that’s all dependent on
your color pattern but once when we get here into the next color that we have
we’re going to insert our hook making sure that our
hook is going in through the front panel and the back panel and we’re inserting
it right where this first color meets our second color there should be that
one loop right there and since we have that we’re going to now grab our second
color which is right here we’re going to keep this working yarn over our work
right here we’re going to grab our secondary color once we have that we are
going to pull through and then from here we’re just going to single crochet like
normal over our secondary color and our first color that we have on our hook so
we’re going to yarn over pull through everything and then now we have our
first color that we are just using and that will be intertwined into where
we’re working and then once when we reach this color again over here this
will already be where we’re working at so we don’t need to do any extra cutting
in time but once when we’re here we’re already into this second color so we
don’t have to do anything fancy what we’re going to do and also how we’re
going to hide in our ends as we go we’re going to insert our hook into this next
loop that we have and then once we have that we’re going to keep these ends over
the work that we’re working into making sure that they’re laying flat and we’re
going to single crochet over everything that we have and then this is going to
help us just like how the first color is going to help us just kind of lay flat
into the work that we’re working into so let’s keep doing this until we get to
the third color we’re right here we’re going to insert our hook into this next
loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through choose or regular single
crochet making sure that everything is laying flat underneath it and we’re now
at our third color what we’re going to do is find that loop where our second
color meets our third color we’re going to insert our hook in through that front
loop and that same back loop and then we’re going to grab that color and
insert that onto our hook pull that through then from here we’re
going to pull through everything we should still have our secondary color on
our hook and now we have our third so from here we’re going to yarn over pull
through everything with a regular single crochet and then from here this is going
to be the same it’s gonna be a little hard to see because there’s a lot of
tails woven in put into this first available loop in the front panel and
then into the next available loop that we have in the back panel and from there
we’re going to single crochet let’s grab this tail as well from here we’re going
to single crochet making sure that we’re going over all of the tails so that we
don’t need to come in later now we’re gonna keep doing this until we get to
our first color again which is our gray and I’m just going to show you guys how
to switch out your colors one last time I’m just gonna keep doing this with this
color that we’re currently working into we just have a couple more loops left this and this is our last loop of this
color and then we will be switching it out so here’s this one and once when we
get here we’re now at this loop where this color that we’re currently working
into meets this next color that we’re working into so we’re going to insert
our hook making sure that we go in through the front panel and through the
back panel and then from here we should have this color intertwined into our
work underneath this single crochet row that we just did so we can just grab
that tail and then single crochet and now this is coming out pretty nicely so
we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down all the way up until we get to the
bottom of this underarm portion and once when you get here we’re going to do
something just a little bit different so that we can go around the arm and then
I’ll meet you guys back once when you get here so that we can do the rest of
it together we’ve now made it all the way to the end with our seaming row and
as you guys can see pretty much all of our tail ends were woven in as we worked
which is perfect because I hate weaving those in but once we have that done all
we’re gonna do is take our colors that are still underneath our single crochet
we’re gonna cut it and then we’re gonna tie everything together because if we
don’t these can be yanked on a little bit
and it could make our top look a little funky so we’re just gonna cut those ends
and then we do have these extra tails who are just going to tie these together
nice and tight and then we can start working on the arm holes we have cut and
tied and what we’re gonna do next is we are going to maintain our coloring that
we have here but instead of going in with this row of hiding in the tail ends
we are just going to go in with rows of single crochet cutting and tying and
then going into that next color which is kind of a mess but we will have a
solution once when this top is done but to get this started what we’re gonna do
we’re not going to be going into these single crochet rows that we have because
those are already perfect what we’re gonna do is go into the parts that are
side samma crochets that go up the arm so the first thing we’re gonna do is
actually go into this last loop that we have into this single crochet row so the
loop that is the closest to the part that goes up your body and from here
we’re gonna insert our hook with our same color we’re gonna pull this through
and then from here we’re gonna go in with rows of single crochet until we
meet our next color and there’s not going to be any real loops for us to go
into so we’re just gonna have to figure it out if I can there we go there’s one
and we’re gonna do this all the way up until we get to this next color and as
you guys can see my next color is this gray so all I’m gonna do is chain up one
and cut and then I will grab my next color and attach that on to this work so
how we’re going to introduce our next color and every color after this is
actually going into this last single crochet that we went into into this you
know crochet row that we’re currently working into so we’re going to insert
our hook insert our next color pull through and now that this is all
attached what we’re gonna do is go into that next loop that we have with our
next color and unfortunately for me this is about as far as I’m gonna go for this
color because this is just one loop so I’m going to chain up one and cut and
let’s grab our next color so that we can show you guys how to do the next color
just one more time we are at our next color we have gotten that ready so we’re
gonna insert our hook into this next loop that we have insert our next color
pull through and then go into this first loop that we have where our previous
color and our next color meet with a single crochet and then you guys can
enter weave your tail ends just like how we did on the sides here if you guys
want but this could show forth just a little bit more than I would like so I’m
gonna be leaving them because I’m gonna come back and put those away later so
you guys can do whatever you guys want with that information but we are going
to single crochet until we get to this last loop chain of one cut grab my next
color and then we’re going to insert it into this last single crochet that we
have and then continue doing single crochets all the way down all the way
around oops this sleeve until we make it down
to this last single crochet loop that we have into the single crochet rule right
here we’re going to slip stitch it into that loop chain up one and cut and then
we will be ready to start on the sleeve a really quick reminder right before we
start seaming up our sides is that we’re going to want to flip our work inside
out so that these loops that we have that we don’t want to be seen are on the
same side as our seam so that once we flip it inside out everything on the
outside is nice and pretty we’re now all finished up with going in with our row
of single crochet where we switched out our colors every time we had to in our
color pattern and once we get here we’re ready to start doing our shoulder
portion so taking a look at our work this is what we should have this is the
shoulder portion that faces out our arm is going to be coming out through this
hole right here so once we have this we’re going to want
to see our pattern that we have we obviously started with a V on our
shoulder and we’re going to want to maintain this pattern going all the way
down our all right basically but once we have
this we’re going to take a look at this color that we have I obviously have a
white so I have my white yarn ready and what we’re gonna do is figure out where
this middle loop is right where our I guess triangle portion meets and mine is
this loop right here and what we’re gonna do is from here we’re gonna count
up three loops here’s one two and three we’re gonna insert our hook into that
third loop and then we’re gonna go back into that middle loop with double
crochets so I’m gonna pull through I’m gonna prepare for a double crochet and
then into that middle loop that was right here I will be going in with seven
double crochets but this will be different for everyone if you guys have
wider shoulders or if you guys just need to adjust you guys can have more or less
double crochets that is completely up to you guys
but I’m just gonna go in with seven because that’s what I need just to have
this expand and make sure that there’s no gaps in between any of my double
crochets but it’s still comfortable to wear so I’m gonna go in with my seven
here’s one two three four five six and one more together seven now that we have
that we’re gonna count out 3 loops 1 2 3 slip stitch into that loop and oh let’s
fix that but once when we do slip stitch that nicely
you’re ready to go into our next row there we go so in order to work our way
up to the next row we are gonna have to eyeball this because this next row is
obviously going to go into this next color so I’m going to chain up one and
cut and then we’re going to be switching out our colors and then I’ll show you
guys what to do from there now that we have our first row double crochet I will
show you guys the pattern that we’re going to do until this reaches the tip
of your shoulder so I will be switching out my colors but you guys do not have
to this is all all all dependent on you guys but into my next available loop I’m
going to insert my hook into that loop insert my
secondary color or if you guys want to switch out your colors just for the
sleeves that we’ve pretty cool too but once we get here we’re going to go into
this fan double crochet that we made for ourselves and we’re going to be
increasing into the first loop somewhere in the middle and then the last loop and
the somewhere in the middle doesn’t have a number pattern you guys can just pick
a loop because we just need this to expand just a little bit more until this
reaches the tip of our shoulder so it doesn’t quite matter which one we go
into once we get here we’re gonna go into that first loop with an increase of
single crochet so here is one single crochet into that first loop and we’re
gonna be putting one more into that same loop so there was one and here is two
and then we’re just gonna stick with each other until we get to the middle
and this looks about right to me so I’m just gonna insert my hook into this
middle loop there’s one there’s two and then single crochet all the way back
down to until we reach this last loop we’re gonna do an increase of two into
that last loop two and then we’re going to slip stitch into this next available
loop that we have right here just like that and then we’re actually going to
continue on with the same pattern so increasing into the first loop or
whichever where you’re coming from the first loop somewhere in the middle and
then the last loop that’s just a regular increase of two single crochet until
this reaches the tip tip tip of your shoulders so I’m gonna keep doing this
while alternating out my colors so I’m gonna have a total of from this first
row of double crochet of two inches or about five centimeters and then I will
meet you guys back to show you guys what to do from there okay so this looks a
little messy but just to show you guys I have this chunk as you guys can see this
is our double crochet row and a bunch of single crochet rows where we increased
into the first the middle and the last loops and I have my total of 2 inches or
5 centimeters and now we will actually go in with just regular single crochets
no increases no nothing all the way up until you get to about
midway in this armhole that we have and then we’re going to do just a little bit
of increases and then we’re going to have the rest of our armhole so go ahead
and keep doing this same pattern while switching out your colors all the way
until you get about halfway through and then I’ll meet you guys back so this is
what I have so far we have a nice little hook cap sleeve which isn’t what we’re
going for so we are finally halfway down our armhole that we made for ourselves
and now that we’re half way down we’re going to do some increases but only
within the first loop and the last loop but we’re going to keep doing single
crochets going back and forth all the way up until we get to this corner loop
that we have down here on both sides and then from there we’re going to be
working along everything that we have but once we get here it’s going to be
into the back loops only and then we can continue on with the sleeve from there
but let me just show you guys how to do this first bit with the increases into
the first and last loops will go back and forth and then I’ll meet you guys
back once we’re ready to connect through this underarm portion right here so
getting this next part started it’s going to be exactly the same way that we
have started the other portion all we’re going to do is insert our hook into the
next available loop that we have into this sleeve portion and mine is my other
color and then it is from this one so I’m just going to be making sure that my
colors align I’m going to pull this through and then once we have that we’re
going to insert our hook into this first available loop that we have with an
increase of two so really quickly here is one single crochet and then here is
two single crochet into that same first loop once we have that we’re going to be
going in with one single crochet into every loop going all the way down and
then once we make it to the end we are going to do another increase of two into
that last loop but I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do that together we are now about to go into that last
loop with our increase of two so here is one here is two once we have that we’re
going to take a look at this next available loop that we have and to the
side with a slip stitch and then once we have that we’re going to slip stitch up
the next loop and then this loop is going to be this loop I’m so sorry this
row it’s going to be a row of regular single crochets and all we’re going to
be doing is alternating between every other row where we increase into one row
don’t do anything in the next and then increase into the row after that so
we’re going to continue doing that like I said until you make it down to this
corner loop that we have on both sides and then we’ll meet each other back so
that we can do the rest of the sleeve together so this is our beginning of our
sleeve you guys can’t see too much of it but this is our armhole that we have
left ourselves and we have done our increases into the first loop and the
back loop with single crochets in between all the way up until we got to
these middle middle interviews corner loops that I told you guys to stop at
and now we’re going to do a quick row of single crochet going along the bottom
and then once we make it all the way to the end that’s when we’re start that’s
when we’re going to start working in a circle I’m sorry if I’m stuttering I’ve
actually been up all night at 6:00 in the morning right now but anyways moving
up what we’re gonna do I know I said earlier that we’re gonna be working into
the back loops but it all depends on what side you end on and for me it’s
going to be working into the front loops but if you guys end on this side then
you guys are going to be working into the back loops going this way but either
way what we’re going to want to do is make sure that the available loop that
we have is going to be on the inside because this is going to help our sleeve
fold over a lot cleaner so whatever loop is on the outside of
your sweater or your top we’re going to be doing a single crochet into that one
so for me it’s the front loops so just gonna go in with one single crochet
into every front look that we have going all the way around and then I’ll meet
you guys back once when we have made it through this next loop because then we
can work our way up and then continue going all the way back around with the
rest of our sleeve toe we are all back with our row of front loops single
crochets this is the inside as you guys can see this is a little ribbing that we
left for ourselves and all we’re going to do is go into this first loop that we
have into this cap sleeve portion with a slip stitch so into this first available
loop that we have we’re going to reach all the way over here with a slip stitch
and once we have that we’re going to chain up one we’re going to flip our
work back around and then go in with rows of single crochet and we’re
flipping our work so that we can maintain this pattern that we have that
our single crochet is kind of made since we’re going back and forth instead of
going in a circle we just want to maintain that so every time we make it
to the end we’re going to chain up one and it work the way that we just came
back from and then that’s going to be the majority of this sleeve we’re just
going to want to maintain our color-block portion that we’re doing
whatever you guys are doing and then I’m actually gonna keep doing this for a
little bit I’ll meet you guys back in the next step to tell you guys the exact
link that I have and to see what we’re doing next because I haven’t quite
decided yet but we will decide later I have just finished up doing my sleeve
all the way up until I get to about my elbow and just let you guys know from
this underarm portion all the way down to where I have I’m about 7 inches or 18
centimeters well once we get here we can now start tapering in the sleeve which
is decreasing into every 2 inches or 5 centimeters so that it can start to
taper in towards the wrist so that we can have our little cuff at the end so
all that is is fairly simple we’re going to insert our hook and I’m
doing it this way because I didn’t have to switch out my color if you guys are
already in your work that is totally fine all we’re gonna do is pull through
chain up one two secure and then once we have this I’m actually gonna take a look
at the sleeve once when it’s laying down flat and there’s not going to be a real
number account we’re just going to have to eyeball this portion but all I’m
gonna do is single crochet until I get to the underside of our sleeve we’re
gonna put one decrease in here and then from there we’re going to also take a
look at the top two corners that we have in the sleeve and put a decrease into
each of those as well so we’re basically going to be decreasing into three
portions of this sleeve and we’re only going to be doing that for one row and
then I will be going for another two inches or 5 centimeters and then doing
another decrease but you guys can either elongate that or shorten that however
you guys want your sleeve to look but I’m just gonna do a couple crochets
until I get down here and then ones when I get down here we’re gonna do a
decrease together just to show you guys what it is we have done just a couple of
single crochets all the way down until we made it to the underside of our
sleeve and all we’re going to do is a decrease so let’s do that together
really quickly we’re going to insert our hook into the next available loop yarn
over pull through into the next available loop yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through all three and then that counts as our decrease and
like I said before we get going with the rest we’re just going to put another
decrease into the next two sides that we have basically making a triangle and
then that will be it for this row and then from there we’re just going to keep
going with single crochets until you guys decide to decrease again and we’re
gonna keep doing this until we have the complete length of our sleeve and I’ll
meet you guys back in the next clip to tell you guys the full length that I
have right before we start doing our cuff we now have the length of our
sleeve all finished up and this has gone all the way down to my wrist and from
this first underarm portion that we have all the way down to where I ended I have
17 inches or 43 centimeters and we are nearly done so so close to being done
now I just need to go in with our itty bitty cuff at the bottom but right
before we do that you guys are going to need to figure out how long you guys
want your cuff to be and I’m just going to go in with a cuff of 2 inches or 5
centimeters so all that is since we are going in with a color that
we just finished our sleep with I’m going to be doing a chain up of 2 inches
or 5 centimeters the measurement that I just told you guys we now have our chain
what we’re gonna do is block off this last chain chain up one extra and then
we’re gonna be going into every loop that we have in our chain with a slip
stitch so all that is is inserting our hook yarn over pull through everything
and let’s do that one more time together just a little bit more solutely so into
this next available loop insert your nowhere pull through everything on the
hook and we’re going to keep doing this all the way down until we make it to the
base and then we are going to slip stitch into the base to close off this
row and then also slip stitch up one more loop so that we can work our way up
to the next loop and we are actually very very close so we’re going to stick
together until we get there we have just one more loop insert pull through Oh
pull through everything we can there we go and then from here what we’re gonna
do is take a look at this next available loop that we have not into this loop
because this is obviously where our chains in to put into this next we loop
we’re gonna insert with a slip stitch yarn over and pull through everything
and this first row is now all closed up once we have that we’re going to slip
stitch up the next loop flip our work and then go in with back loop slip
stitches so all that is is these are the two loops that we would typically go
into all that is is going into that back loop so that we can get some ribbing
also that also so that this can cinch in pull through let’s do this again these
are the two loops that we usually go into we’re gonna go into that back loop
yarn over pull through everything and we’re going to keep doing this all the
way down once we make it to the end we’re going to chain up one flip our
work continue to do more back loop slip stitches and then we’re going to connect
it into the next available loop that we have into the base once when we get
there and then to work our way up to the next rail we’re just going to be slip
stitching up the next available loop and then working our way back with back loop
slip stitches and that is basically it go ahead and keep doing this until we
don’t have any more loops and our base and then we’ll connect it all together
and then we’ll finish up this piece we’ve just finished up doing our cuff
and we don’t have any more loops left so what we’re going to do is go in with the
seam just to close this all up so that we are all finished with this cuff but
right before we do that we are going to want to make sure that our sleeve is
flipped inside out so that all the seams like the one that we have along the
inside is all facing the same direction so all I’m going to do is just pull my
sleeve inside out so that we can connect this all together the way that we’re
going to combine our two sides that we have for the cuff is the same way that
we have combined the side portion of this top so we’re just going to run
through this really quickly we’re going to insert our hook in through one corner
and we’re already into this other corner we’re just gonna go into that same loop
again with a single crochet and once we have that we’re going to insert our hook
into this next available loop in the front panel and then into the next
available loop that we have in the back panel there we go
and single crochet and this is going to be it continue to do single crochets all
the way down until you don’t have any more loops left to go into we’re going
to chain up one and cut and we have just a few anybody details left to go into
and then we’ll be all done you’re now all finished up with doing our sleeve
we’re going to go ahead and do one more and then once when we have both of these
done we’re going to do just a little bit of detail along the slit that we left
ourselves and also along the bottom portion of this top as well so once when
we were done with both of our sleeves the next thing that we’re going to do is
go in with a border just a regular single crochet border going along this
seam that we have just to clean up the edges and also to make it easier for us
so that we can hide in the tails as we go along but we’re going to do it the
same way that we did the inside portion which is going to be we’re going to
follow the color row that we have in the body portion so let’s start this off
together what we’re first going to do is insert our hook into this bottom corner
insert this same color that we have pull through we’re going to chain up one two
secure and then from here we’re going to be putting one single crochet into each
of these sides single crochet loop’s with just one single crochet
until we get to our next color we’re going to insert yarn over pull through
and then right before we go into that next color that we have we’re going to
grab our secondary color insert that onto our hook and then go in with a
single crochet into this next color with our secondary color we’re going to make
a slipknot we’re going to insert that onto our hook once we have that we’re
going to pull underneath these two loops that we have on our hook once when we
have that we’re going to go into that next loop that we have which is our
secondary color just like this and we’re not going to cut and tie the body
portion of the previous color because that’s going to come into play once we
get to that color again further along in the body portion but until then we’re
just going to hide it right where we’re going into along with all the tail ends
as well so we’re just going to keep everything laid down flat like that and
single crochet and we’re going to keep doing that for as many loops as we have
for this color so we just have one more but once when we are ready to go into
the next color we’re not going to complete our single crochet so we’re
going to insert our hook into that last step that we have for our color pull
through we should have two loops on our hook and then we’re going to grab our
second knot second we’re on our second we’re gonna grab our third color make a
slipknot insert that onto our hook pull through both loops that we have on the
hook and then from here we’re ready to go into that next color that we have
which is right here with a single crochet making sure that we’re hiding in
the portions of yarn that we’re working into and also our tails so we’re gonna
do this and single crochet until we get to the end of this color and then we’re
going to just grab the next color since that’s already in our work and go in
with single crochet so this is the last loop of the blue color that we’re
working into we have our two loops on our hook we’re going to grab our next
color which just so happens to be our white and it’s already intertwined into
where we’re working so from here we’re just going to grab our white we’re going
to yarn over pull through the two loops that we have
our hook and now we’re ready to start working with our white yarn and from
here we’re going to insert our hook into that next loop yarn over pull through a
single crochet and we’re going to maintain this pattern going all the way
down but we are working towards the peak of our work right here well once we get
there we’re just going to be doing a decrease so that that can maintain its
shape so we’re just going to stick together for now until we get there
and this is the last loop that we have in this color so we’re gonna yarn over
pull through we should have two loops on the hook we’re going to grab our next
color pull that through and now we’re ready to work with our gray and this is
what we should have it’s a little messy because there’s a lot of tails going in
and out of pretty much everything what we’re gonna do is decrease into this
last slip that we have on this side and also into the first suit that we have on
the other side of our slit so we’re going to insert our hook still hiding
our tail ends yarn over pull through we should have two loops on the hook and
then we’re going to reach all the way over to this loop over here we’re going
to if we can a little tangled there we go okay let’s try this again insert into
this first loop yarn over pull through and then into the next loop that we have
on the other side insert yarn over pull through and now we’re ready for our
decrease and all that is is yarn over pull through all three loops on our hook
then once we have that we’ve actually decreased into this last bit and I will
be switching out my colors again so since we don’t have another color to go
into we’re just gonna insert a hook straight into this next color we’re
going to grab this next color in our working yarn or working bundle and then
single crochet just like that and then from there we’re going to maintain this
pattern going all the way down until we make it to this corner and then once we
make it to this corner I am going to be switching out for just a different color
for this bottom board or a single crochet rope I’ll meet you guys back
once we get to this corner so that we can do it together we’ve now made it
over to this corner and now we’re at the bottom
blunt portion of our top and all I’m going to do is cut the two colors that I
don’t need for this bottom border that we’re going to do and as you can see the
next color that I would have gone into would be my blue so I’m going to use
that as just my single crochet border along the bottom so for the white and
gray I’m just going to cut these guys and then I will tie those in but from
here we’re just going to go all the way across with a row of single crochet and
then once get to this next slip we’re gonna do the
same exact thing that we did on this side and then do a row of single crochet
with your bottom border color again once we make it to the end we’re going to cut
and tie and then we’ll meet each other back so that we can finish this off
together we are now all finished up with doing our bottom border along with our
slits and the very last thing that we have to do for this sweater is just
weave in all of these lovely ends that we’ve left for ourselves this is our
very cute crochet striped sweater all finished this sweater has been a
challenge because I could not figure out how to do the shoulders to save my life

  1. I love the sweater but have u ever tried just making a raglan style piece? So that way it's not so many pieces to sew together and way less ends to weave in thank you friend๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I love this!! I love how you use inexpensive yarn and make it look expensive, thank you for sharing!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Love the color combo! Have you ever tried the "carry your yarn up the side of your work" method? Cuz weaving in ends is my arch nemesis!

  5. Super cute! Lord girl get some sleep! Lol. Looks like a raglan type sweater made a bit more troublesome. Maybe you can give that a go. Pretty easy to do, but you made the striping look wonderful. Donโ€™t know if Iโ€™d have that kind of patience lol. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  6. I love this sweater, but too many steps for my liking. I just started a top that starts at the neck and goes down as a raglan sweater without piecing etc, and no seams. That one would also look nice in stripes but would have a different look. That sweater is called: Kapri Sweater Knit Along.
