My favourite thing about this crochet sweater is that it does not look crochet at first ( unless it’s just me), the knit vibes it gives makes you believe you could work a pair of knits LOL!
I had a great time working on this piece as i was excited to see how it woud fit.
If i am to make it again, i would make the arms a bit longer as these do not reach the wrists. So take note as you are crocheting. Feel free to add on a few stitches to the arms
Good to know
