Crochet Colorblocked Sweater
Intermediate | 41 min 31 sec
First time sweater makers, have no fear! If you’ve mastered the basics of crochet and are excited to move on to garment stitching, the Colorblocked Pullover is an ideal introduction. Marly Bird, proud Red Heart spokesperson, walks you through the four pieces of construction: front, back, and two sleeves. Stitched up in a cozy, washable merino, this yarn comes in 24 shades. Switching colors is easier than it looks, lending a pop of visual interest to an otherwise basic garment, and slip stitches make for swift seaming.

The sweater is cute and easy. I might like to try this pattern. But it sounded like Marly said the pattern is only written in size M? If so, that's discouraging, since I'd need an L or XL.

You cannot go wrong with Marly Bird. She is a wonderful teacher and designer. The sweater is a pretty one and the pattern simple enough that even a beginning crocheter can make it. Thank you, Marly Bird, and thank you, Creativebug.
