Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today
I’m going to show you how to crochet an easy mesh cardigan sweater that fits most everyone.
If you need help with the basics of crochet, be sure to check out my beginner videos before
starting. To do this, you’ll need about 1000 yards of worsted weight yarn. An H crochet
hook, along with scissors and a yarn needle. First make a slipknot, and then chain 151
– or any odd number of chains if you’d like to adjust the size. Do 1 double crochet in
the fifth chain from the hook. Chain 1, skip 1 chain, and make 1 double crochet in the
next chain. Repeat this process, chain 1, skip 1 chain, make 1 double crochet stitch.
Continue this across the row. When you get to the end, I like to do something different.
First turn your work. Then do 1 single crochet in the same space, followed by a chain 1.
This is a nice double crochet alternative for the first stitch. For the remainder of
the row, make 1 chain over each chain, and 1 double crochet over each double crochet.
At the end, turn your work, make a single crochet, and then a chain 1. Then do 1 chain
over every chain and 1 double crochet over every double crochet to form this mesh pattern.
Before you get too far along, be sure your width is about 38 inches. You’ll continue
making these rows until you have about 70 of them – or until your height is about 40
inches. Once completed, fold your work in half, matching the top to the bottom. On the
side for armholes, measure off about 7 or 8 inches. Sew the sides together, leaving
the space for the armholes. Repeat on the other side, and then try it on. And that’s
it – very simple sweater cardigan. Feel free to add buttons or a bow in the front like
I did. To view this video in other languages, click on the closed caption link on YouTube
