Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You'll need to know the basic crochet stitches: how to chain, single-crochet and double-crochet.
  • Any other special stitch will be explained (or link given to tutorial) in pattern

Pattern Description:

Learn to crochet your very first sweater with this easy-to-follow detailed step-by-step tutorial.

Ready to take your crocheting skills to the next level? Search no more!

With this very detailed visual tutorial, you will learn how to crochet a seamless sweater derived from uber-popular Roselette and Violaine tops.

If you want to branch out from making scarves and dishclothes and already know how to chain, make a single crochet and a double crochet (US terms, UK equivalents given in pattern), you can do this!! In a few hours with the help of this step-by-step tutorial, you will make your first ever crocheted sweater.

This tutorial includes 20 step-by-step photos to complement the detailed plain-english instructions. Meant to be used by people with no previous experience in crocheting with a pattern, there are no abbreviations at all to start with. Then a couple very obvious abbreviations (such as ch = chain, sc = single crochet) will be introduced in the course of the tutorial so you can progressively gain confidence in your pattern-reading skills.
Furthermore, a 2nd version of the exact same pattern is provided using all the commonly used abbreviations and lingo so you can see it's not so difficult after a little practise.
Once you've finished your miniature sweater, you'll be completely ready to tackle the full-size version of the same design, Roselette for babies and girls up to 10yo or Violaine for ladies in size XS to XL: one of my students had finished her very first Roselette baby sweaterone week only after completing this workshop !

And you can do it too!

Pattern is written with a focus on detailed very EASY TO FOLLOW instructions, even for advanced beginner crocheters. Close-up and step by step pictures help you visualize what you are meant to do for each step.
