Use this crochet pattern to make your own “My First Sweater”, even if it isn’t your first sweater.  But if it is, I promise that it is not as hard as it seems, and you will feel so proud and accomplished when you are done.  I know I was!

Instructions are given to adjust the sweater to any size or body shape.

I have included plenty of pictures to help you on your way to making your first sweater!
