Materials and Gauge
Crafted from the soft, eco-friendly DROPS Loves You 9 in a stunning coral shade, this sport weight, 100% recycled cotton yarn ensures your sweater is not only beautiful but also kind to the planet. Depending on your size, yarn requirements range from 450g to 600g. The pattern calls for 3mm and 4mm hooks, alongside essential tools like a yarn needle and stitch markers. Gauge is crucial to achieving the perfect fit, with body and sleeves worked at 16.5 ehdc sts x 10 rows and waist and cuff at 18 hdc sts x 15 rows, both measured over a 10 x 10 cm square.
Pattern Sizes and Stitches
This versatile pattern accommodates sizes XS through 2XL, ensuring a flattering fit for every body type. You’ll navigate through foundational stitches like chains and double crochets to more specialized techniques such as foundation half double crochet (fhdc) and extended half double crochet (ehdc). The pattern thoroughly explains each step, including how to execute an invisible join for a flawless finish.
