Beginner Crochet Sweater with Colorblock:
First time sweater makers, have no fear! This is a great class for beginners or experienced crocheters wanting to dip their toe into garment making. With a simple four piece construction and oversize style you don’t have to worry about adding shaping. Focus on your stitches and let the pattern make your first crochet sweater.
After mastering the basics of crochet and basic projects you might be ready to try out your first garment. Try the Colorblocked Pullover in this class to get you started on your journey.
Rather than starting with a sweater that requires alot of shaping, try out this pullover pattern made up of two panels (a front and back) and two sleeves. Don’t be intimidated by the color changes happening in the middle of the piece vs. the edges. Color changing is easier than it looks and I show you how in this class.
