Sweater_for_Baby_Evelyn

I've made some modifications to the original sweater pattern (because I'm lazy like that, and I wanted to avoid sewing so much... Sewing usually slows me down, unfortunately.) :D I started out with 54 foundation double crochet stitches, added markers where the original "front", "sleeve" and "back" stitches would have ended, and went back and forth throughout each parts' row 1, row 2... etc. up to row 10. From there, I added 1 double crochet round for the body with 4 increases then switched to a bigger hook and the shell stitch pattern. The body and the two sleeves are crocheted in the round with the shell stitch pattern. - Increases are only done in the first shell stitch round for the sleeves (I cheated 2 times with a shell's base and only skipped 1-1 stich before the single crochet of the shell's edge.) - This could have been done with the body too, but I found it easier to add that double crochet round, where I am more confident with increases. That's all folks~

fbregistr16920189 asked:
I love this but I'm just a beginner to crochet! Do you have a patern for it? It's just gorgeous.
MrJensen answered:
Hi, The original pattern for this sweater is part of the class. I've only changed a couple of things that I have written down (hopefully with enough details) in the Project Description section. I only altered 2 things: I've crocheted it in 1 piece instead of 4, and I've switched to a simple shell pattern (and 1 size bigger hook) for the rest of the sweater. I'm not a pro myself, so I've kept the increasing part strictly in the double crochet rows (made 3 double crochets into the same space). I hope this helps.
