Modern crochet sweater that might look complicated, but is really easy to make. Top-down, big hook and no seaming - it is a fast make!

The pattern has written instructions, a chart for the first 10 rounds and a photo tutorial for FPdc.

I crocheted using 2 different yarns held together - a thin wool and a kid mohair. This gives an airy appearance and a light-weight garment. You can easily use other kinds of yarn of your choice. But choose a thinner yarn than you might expect and feel comfortable with - otherwise it won’t drape and will be bulky.

I used:
5 (6) skeins of Semilla fino from BC yarn (240 m/50 g)
5 skeins of Kid mohair from BC yarn (225 m/25 g)

There are 2 sizes in the pattern and the sweater is designed to fit loosely.
Finished measurements: Length: 46 (46) cm. Circumference of sweater at chest: 96 (112) cm. Be aware that the pattern has a lot of elasticity.

The pattern is written in english, a danish version is available in the book Hækleværk.
