Seas The Day Sweater


February is always very cold in Toronto.
And when I headed out on a quick vacation to Cancun a few weeks ago....this project idea came to mind.

A sweater that is long enough to be a cover up, cool enough to wear in the warmer months, and on point to pair with ripped jeans or shorts....

Here is Seas The Day Sweater

And like always: beginner friendly and adjustable to any size!

Notes before you begin:
-the amount of ribbing you complete is how wide each panel will be, I made a size small (it is a little over sized)
-complete more rows in the ribbing for a larger size, and less rows in the ribbing for a smaller size
-this sweater is made up of 4 panels: front, back, and 2 sleeves
-the collar is completed separately and seamed on the neckline after all pieces are seamed together
-I used 4 skeins of Caron X Pantone Solids in the colourway: Mushroom Greige.


Ready?
Let's make The Seas The Day Sweater!



OTH Crochet Nook Pattern: Seas The Day Sweater

Skill Level: Easy


Materials:
Color (Mushroom Greige)

Size K [7 mm] crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge.




Gauge:
12 sts and 8 rows = 4” x 4"

Abbreviations:
CH = Chain(s)
SC = Single Crochet
BLO = Back Loop Only
SK = Skip a stitch
HDC = Half Double Crochet
CH SP = Chain Space

Instructions:
The instructions are written for size S.  If changes are necessary to make a larger size, add the desired amount of ribbing/cuff rows before each panel.

BACK and FRONT (make alike):
Ribbing: Ch 8.
1st row: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook.  1 sc in each ch to end of chain. Turn. 7 sts
2nd row: Ch 1. 1 SC BLO in each st to end of row. Turn.
Rep last row until ribbing reaches desired width. (for XS/S = 36 rows)
Do not fasten off

Next row: Ch 1. Work Sc evenly across long edge of ribbing. Turn. (for XS/S = 52 sc)
Next row: Ch 3. HDC in CH SP, *ch 1, sk 1, HDC in ch sp, repeat from * until end of row. Turn.

Repeat highlighted row until you reach your desired length (I completed 38 rows)
SL ST twice, fasten off.




SLEEVES (make 2):
RIBBING: Ch 8.

2nd row: Ch 1. 1 SC BLO in each st to end of row. Turn.

SL ST twice, fasten off.

*once you've reached half way up your arm (at your elbow) you can add 1 extra HDC at the beginning and end of each row - so you have more room for the upper part of your arm (this will create an increase)
