Turn your panel the right way around so the textured side is facing you. Now we will work on the other shoulder:

Next row: Ch 1(counts as first st), *dc in next, sl st into next, repeat from * to end. Turn.
Next row: Ch 3(counts as first st), dc into each st across. Turn.
Repeat last 2 rows until you have a further 7 rows completed. Add more rows here if you need sleeve longer.
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Assembling the sweater:
Lay the back panel down so the textured side is facing you, then grab the front panel and lay that on top of the back panel with the textured side facing down. Sew the shoulders to the back panel.
Now lay the sweater out flat, textured side facing down. Grab a sleeve and fold it lengthwise to find the middle stitch. Mark the middle st with a stitch marker and attach to the sea of the shoulder. Now sew sleeve to the sweater. Repeat for other side. Now fold sweater over and sew the under edge of sleeve and the sides of the sweater.
Turn sweater right side out.
Attach yarn to the corner of the neckline and ch 3, the dc all the way around the neckline. Sl st to the beginning ch 3 to close the round.
Next round: Ch 3, *fpdc in next st, bpdc in next, repeat from * all the way around. Sl st to beginning ch3 to close round. Repeat this row a further 3-4 more times depending on how thick you want the neckline to be.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
You are now finished your sweater. This pattern is also available on my YouTube channel if you would like a visual tutorial.

Hi coule you tell me please How mich Yarn i need,and be the eau beautifull sweater
It states in grams how much yarn is needed per size right under the materials heading.
So you have a Guage for this? I tend to stitch right and want to make store I use the correct hook size for the Guage.
Hello, I really like this tutorial, thank you very much, but I do not know how many meters I will need. So may I ask you how many meters I will need if i need 500g of yarn. Thank you very much.
If I want to make stripes like the picture when should I switch colors for the body and sleeves?
Picture shows 3 rows change
3 rows or 6 (since is a 2 row repeat)?
In the video she says color changes are every 6 rows.
I can not find gauge listed. I’ve looked several times through. Does gauge not really matter in this project? I would think that it would. It’s a beautiful sweater.
I’ve been trying to find the gauge too. It HAS to matter in clothing. Did you ever get it?
What colors are these and what yarn you used? Its very pretty
Hi! This sweater is beautiful! How are you handling the color change between rows? Do you cut it each time or carry up at the edge? I hate having to weave in ends but 6 rows seems a bit much to get away with.
Can I ask, there’s a decrease on the sleeve. Am I right that the smaller end will be the cuff and the larger end what you’re seeing onto the shoulder?
Sorry if a silly question, it’s my first piece of clothing so just want to make sure!!
I love this sweater and am going to make it as soon as I get the yarn which I want to order ASAP. How much yarn do I need? I’m a beginner and don’t know how to interpret “500g”; I always buy based on yards.
Just look on the label. Right now I’m working w red heart ombré. 1 ball has 283 grams so I know 2 skeins should be enough with extra leftover just in case
Is there a way to make the decrease on the cuff smaller, so that it is not really big? Thank you for this beautiful pattern.
When assembling this, are you sewing with a machine or by hand?
