Basket Weave Sweater

Any seasons casual sweater, a simple design for for modern girls!!
Multiple wear, dress it up or down with skirt, tights, jeans, boots, heels, flats or sneakers!

This sweater is a result of my effort to create a woven look to the crochet fabric.
I ended up with a modified Bean-stitch, and I’m very happy with the final result!
Worked from top/down, in one piece. Slightly shaped for hip-width.
The final border is an easy stitch that I often use to achieve a vertical rib-effect for crochet.
The sleeves are shaped for narrow and tall hand-covering cuffs, same ribbing as on the body.

Optional choice for how to work the neck:

  • A few rounds rib-sts for simple neckline.
  • Turtle-neck worked in the neck-line.
  • Wide and separate neck-warmer. With or without, I love the last choice! See pics

The sizes are slightly wide. If you like an over-sized sweater, choose one size larger.

This was fun, fast, and easy!
