This winter season I wanted to renew some of my sweaters, I went shopping and I couldn’t find what I wanted. Maybe it was out there, but my dreamed sweater/pullover wasn’t anywhere to be seen.
So, I took a different approach. I open my yarn boxes, look through my stash and I rediscovered two skeins of Sweet Home (Katia). Then, I searched the Internet for clues on how to make a raglan sweater from the neck down in one piece.
The information I found was for knitted sweaters, but I adapted it to crochet. My favorite place is here.

Lately I’ve been fascinated with a very simple stitch: extended single crochet. It’s the only stitch I’ve used in the pullover. As I’ve read other crochet designers: it’s a reversible stitch (it’s the same on both sides of the fabric! hooray!)

The pullover is worked mostly in a spiral. Only the yoke is joined on each round. So, this is my first ever designed pullover!

About size: I’m a 10 UK or a 38 Spanish size.
