How to Crochet a Simple Baby Sweater Part 27/28
And so we’ve just been in hold so we’re going to crochet our double. So you chain up one, so just one and you see how it’s going to look and like it’s chaining up two but it’s actually chained up one. So we’re going to half double-crochet all the way around so going to the very next stitch available, put your stragglers on top of the line, so it’s the black and the yellow on top. So then wrap your material around and through and that pull through all three.
So going in to the next stitch; your stragglers are on top, pulling it through and I have three stitches pull it through all three at the same time. So let’s go again. So wrapping your material on to the next stitch, make sure your stragglers are on top and by your stragglers on top what it's locking those strings in the position so they can’t fall out and it’s a great way I’m not having to tie your crochet. So let’s go all the way around and this is row number 11 ladies and gentlemen and this will be the final row. The stragglers on top, you’re just going to keep putting those stragglers on top until you can’t see them anymore until they run out. And the stragglers don’t need to be too long but long enough to hold it in the position. So the stragglers are now done so now we’re just going to continue.
And by changing it to a half double-crochet at the end, it’s causing the material that kind of bend in which is kind of like the way that a sleeve normally does with a nice—in the wrist area. A shirt or something comes in with the last stick but change in the material by changing the stitches, what we’re doing right it’s causing that to naturally happen on its own. And because I’m doing the bumbling, the bumbler formation with the sweater is that this color transition at the end just totally makes this sweater look from drop to fab. So this is the end of the sweater ladies and gentlemen so if you want to do the other side, go to the other side and if you just leave it as this it’s up to you. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this tutorial.
For the expert people that want to move on then you just kind of keep going. So what we’re going to do at this point, you have like a hole in the gap so you’re going into the stitch, the yellow one again and you’re going to slipstitch so just grabbing—just going in pulling it through and through. And then what I would do is going to the next stitch again coming in and just slipstitch it one more time. This is a straggler but we’re going to trim that when we’re done and now you have then end of your sleeve. So to finish this off, you’re just going to cut your yellow, pull it through, pull it nice and tight and then just like anything else we always weave it back into the crochet. So just sticking your needle into the top stitches, grabbing your material pulling it through, throwing it back behind just taking your needle and then pulling it through again and then back behind, just taking your needle in and you keep going until you think it’s enough or you run out of wool, one of the two. Because of you think you’ve gone long enough in weaving it and you can just stop. So what you want to do is you want to pull it so you know that if anybody pulls it any further it’s actually not going to fall out. Of course the black is straggling out so we’re going to trim that as well and pull that and there you go. There’s the under sleeve and if I’ve done things right you’ve got two arms in this sweater and it’s looking fabulous.
