MATERIALS:
Worsted weight yarn, WINTER WEIGHT: 1780 YDS;  SUMMER WEIGHT: 880 YDS
9 mm crochet hook (US M or N)
Yarn needle
Buttons optional



INSTRUCTIONS:
(Abbreviations: dc+ double crochet; ch 1= chain 1)
For a winter weight use 2 strands of yarn,
for a summer sweater, work with 1 strand.

ADULT SMALL: FITS 32 - 38 INCH CHEST
To make any other size, step 7 will provide the instructions.
Video demo here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF1wPnUrwkc&t=2s

1.  Working with a 9 mm crochet hook (US M or N), chain 49
(This is a relaxed neck, for a tighter neck, chain less stitches in a number divisible by 4.
You can check by wrapping the foundation chain around the neck to make sure it fits.
If it is too small, add more foundation chain stitches, making sure you can divide the number of stitches by 
four, plus one extra stitch for turning in step 2.)

2.  Single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook and each stitch of the chain.

3.  Chain 2 and turn, double crochet in each stitch across the row.

4.  Chain 2 and turn, for the remainder of the pattern, work in the back loop of the stitch
    only; alternate front post and back post double crochet across the row.


5.  This step establishes the 4 equal points of the sweater.
Divide the total amount of chain stitches by 4, then divide the front in half (because it is a
open cardigan, and not a pullover. See the video for a thorough explanation.
 Following instructions are for 48 stitches.)
Chain 2 and turn, (takes the place of the first dc.)
Double crochet in the next 5 stitches, in the next stitch: 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc (corner)
Double crochet in the next 11 stitches, in the next stitch: 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc (corner)
Double crochet in the next 11 stitches, in the next stitch: 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc (corner)
Double crochet in the next 11 stitches, in the next stitch: 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc (corner)
Double crochet in the remaining 6 stitches.


6.  *Chain 2 and turn, double crochet up to the first chain 1 space.
In the chain 1 space make: 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc.
Repeat from * 3 more times; double crochet in each remaining stitch.


7.  Repeat step 6 for four more rows for adult small, or any number of rows needed to reach
    below the arms.. (Note: This sample changed color in the first row of this
step, and in the 3rd row of this step.)  
To make plus sizes, simply add as many rows as needed, and this applies to making any
size sweater.

8.  FORM ARMHOLES:
Chain 2 and turn, double crochet up to the first chain 1 space. (Front of sweater)
Skip all the stitches up to the next chain 1 space, double crochet in
the chain 1 space (armhole formed);
double crochet in each stitch up to the next chain 1 space, (back of sweater),
double crochet in the chain 1 space, skip all the stitches up to the next chain 1
space, (armhole formed);
double crochet in the chain 1 space and each remaining stitch of the row. (Front)

9.  Work the body:  *Chain 2 and turn, double crochet in each stitch across the row.
Repeat from * until the body is the length desired. Fasten off.

 FRONT AND BOTTOM BAND:
        Attach yarn in the top stitch at the neck, on either side.
        Chain 2, double crochet in each stitch down the front, across the bottom, and up the
        opposite side front, making 3 double crochet in each of the 2 bottom corner stitches.
        Chain 2 and turn, alternate front and back post double crochet stitches in each stitch
        around all 3 sides, fasten off.




SLEEVES:  Attach yarn in underarm stitch.  
Chain 2, double crochet in each stitch around the opening for the sleeves.  
*Chain 2 and turn, double crochet in each stitch around, decreasing by 1 stitch at the underarm location for a 
tapered sleeve before slip stitching to join.
(To form a dc decrease, insert the hook into the stitch from the front to the back, come back out the next stitch from back to front, and complete the double crochet.)
Repeat from * until the sleeves are the desired length. Fasten off.

BAND: Attach contrasting color yarn in any stitch, chain 2, double crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join.
Chain 2, alternate front post and back post double crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join and fasten off.  Weave yarn ends into the finished work.
