2 gedachten over “The Cable Guy Sweater (English version)

    1. Hi there Rosanna,

      Of course I can help! 🙂 The sleeves are attached to the sweater. If you sewed the front side and backside together on top and you fold them out you’ll see on the sides the turning chains and the last hdc of the rows (each one counts as one post). From the centre/top (where you sewed) you’ve to count, in this size, 17 posts to the left en 17 posts to the right ( Use a stitchmarker). Maybe it would be easier if you hold the sweater horizontal with the right side towards you. Go to the right stitchmarker and begin your first row of singles with a sl.st. & ch2 or ch1, what you prefer for you single crochet row, and follow the instructions in the patterns. From here it’s just crocheting back and forwards. end at the end of the sleeve you’ll sow from the wrist way back to the bottom of the sweater in one time.

      If there are more question, don’t hessitate to ask… I’m here! 🙂

      With Love,
      ByMomKim
