  • For this crochet bardot sweater, you must have knowledge of: working in the BB of the foundation chain, slip stitch, skipping stitches, double crochet, double crochet Moss Stitch and working ribbing on to a piece.
  • This crochet off the shoulder top is made as one piece for the body (creating a neck hole as you go) and the sleeves are worked on to the sides. At the end, the ribbed cuffs, bottom hem and neck ribbing is worked directly on to the piece.
  • The double crochet Moss Stitch is just like the regular Moss Stitch (also knows as Linen Stitch or Granite Stitch) except, instead of using single crochet, you use double crochet. So you skip a stitch and chain 1, then place a DC in the next ST, then skip a stitch and chain 1 and place a DC in the next ST and continue this across the row.
  • The pattern for this crochet Bardot sweater is given for XS with all respective counts given in parentheses ( ) after the XS count.
  • Turning CH’s do NOT count as stitches.
  • To easily count your ST’s in a row to make sure you’re on track, just skip count by 2’s at each DC (not including the turning chain)
  • The stitch count is given in parentheses ( ) at the end of each row.
