About the pattern

This is a beginner Tunisian crochet pattern for a long sleeved sweater that uses 2 stitches throughout.

It is worked bottom-up for the body, in a front and back panel, with top-down sleeves. There is no waist shaping.

All the pieces are seamed and the neckband is added after seaming the body. The cuffs for both sleeves and body are included in the instructions.

The shape is that of a modified drop-shoulder sweater (see schematic below). The sleeves are worked flat, without shaping at the top.

The pattern is written out for all 12 sizes and includes ease. You will choose a size based on the finished garment measurements and follow only the instructions for that size.

The pattern includes video tutorials for stitches, the doubled collar and seaming Tunisian crochet fabric.
