It’s time to conquer that sweater making goal you’ve had for so long! This Simple Striped Sweater is perfect for beginners-crocheted flat in rows and seamed together it’s about as simple as it gets. The sleeves are worked flat from the wrist up so you’re increasing as you go-so much easier than decreasing, right? That’s about it as far as shaping goes. I left the neckline simple and easy.
This sweater is perfect for the hubs or maybe an oversized version for yourself! I’m normally a women’s medium so I’d probably make this one in a men’s small for myself. The fit chart includes chest measurements so you can find the perfect fit for your husband or yourself, or whoever (or maybe it’s whomever-I should know that) you choose to make this for! Men’s Sizes S-5X.
