This pattern is so easily adaptable it can be made for children up to adults, men or women! Simply change the yarn color(s) to suit the person who will wear this gorgeous sweater pattern! Anyone with an intermediate grasp of crochet can make this sweater easily. We've made it as easy as possible, and as always fully written out, for anyone to understand. Detailed instructions for how to measure to obtain your measurements needed are provided. All you need to get your measurements are a comfy fitting long sleeve shirt or sweater from the wardrobe and a cloth measuring tape and you've got ready made measurements! You only need to follow the instructions on where to measure, easy peesy! We also have provided information on gauge so that you can easily determine where to increase and or decrease while crocheting. We can't say enough how easy we've tried to make this pattern for anyone to work from! Our sample shown is a woman's standard size small and only used approximately 31 ounces of yarn. A men's XXL will more likely take up to 3.5 pounds of yarn. You can figure out how much yarn you will probably need based on these numbers, and obviously much less for a baby or child sweater as well. We also have matching coordinating patterns, "Ribbed Lace Scarf" and "Ribbed Winter Hat" also available for purchase! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You will need to know how to do a Chain, Slip, Single Crochet, Standard Double Crochet, and Front and Back Post Double Crochet stitches. You will also need to know how to do a Single Crochet Decrease, instructions are provided on how to do the needed Double Crochet Decreases needed. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Babies-Adults, Boys and Girls, Men and Women

You can order made to order items and pre-made items too! I have a wonderful and loving husband and many, many fur babies (and a couple scaly and a few finned and feathered). I've never been one to conform to what most people would call normal, but I try my best to have fun and enjoy what I do always! I am a tom girl and a girly girl all rolled up into one....why should everyone else have all the fun? It's no fun if you can't get dirty in the process! (Me? I love to play in the dirt and be outside. Mud always washes off!) I have been doing embroidery, cross stitch, quilting and all sorts of crafty things since I was 7 years old. I am now 31 (2011) and needed to do something that I enjoyed doing for once, so my business here was born! I love to cross stitch and quilt the most I would imagine out of all the things that I do (and I do many LOL) and what better way to combine my two loves of stitching! My business is my way of putting my stamp on the world, in my own way of course! I hope everyone enjoys stitching my charts as much as I did creating them! How will you put your stamp on the world? ;)
