Hi makers, welcome or welcome back to another free crochet sweater pattern. As always, this free crochet sweater pattern comes with a video tutorial.
I made this crochet sweater for a friend who purchased it from me to support my business, so you will note i do not have a lot of pictures of it.
The colour choice was all hers, she loved the Sky Light Sweater and she wanted one for herself.

Free crochet sweater pattern notes
-Ch 1 does not count as a stitch The Crochet sweater can be worked to your desired length.
-We will use a 5.5 crochet hook for the body and the 4.00 crochet hook for the bottom band, sleeve band and collar.
-The crochet sweater pattern contains 4 sizes (XS-L)
-This crochet sweater pattern is accompanied by a video tutorial,
-If you do not have a smaller waist and the slst band will be uncomfortable, you can either use the 5.5mm crochet hook to do the slst or instead of a slst you can do sc rows.

MARK THE COLLAR
We will need to mark the collar so as to work on it easier, so place a stitch marker on the first or last sc you made.
Place the next st marker in the 10(10,15,20)th sc stitch.
Place the next st marker in the 10(20,20,20) sc stitch
Place the last st marker in the 10(10,15,20)th stitch.

So now, decr by hdslst two stitches tog and slst into the first stitch marked sc on the collar, slst to the next sc to begin the next row.
HdSlst 2 stitches tog to make another decr. And hdslst all the way down as normal.
Rep this till the next st marker, after that st marker, you will work 10(20,20,20) normal rows.
Following this, we will start to incr at the next stitch marked sc.
To incr, place two hdsls stitches in the same stitch and 2 hdslst stitches in the same stitch. We will incr till the last st marker.
