    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
    • Note: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

    • GAUGE:
    • 4 1/2 pattern reps = about 8-1/2" (21.5 cm); 9 rnds = about 4 1/4" (11 cm) in Block Mesh pattern, unstretched.
    • 20 sc = about 4" (10 cm).
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • STITCH EXPLANATION:
    • rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

    • PATTERN STITCH:
    • Block Mesh
    • Rnd 1 (RS): Sl st in last ch-sp of previous rnd, ch 1, sc in same ch-sp, ch 5, sk next dc-group, sc in next ch-sp, *ch 5, sk next sc, sc in next ch-sp, ch 5, sk next dc-group, sc in next ch-sp; rep from * to last sc, ch 5, sk last sc; join with sl st in first sc.
    • Rnd 2 (RS): Sl st in first ch of first ch-5 sp, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 4 dc in same ch-5 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 sp, *ch 5, 5 dc in next ch-5 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 sp; rep from * around, ch 5; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
    • Rep Rnds 1 and 2 for Block Mesh pattern.

    • NOTES:
    • Pullover is worked in rounds in one piece beginning with the yoke.
    • After working yoke, you will crochet a chain at each underarm to begin working the body of the Pullover.
    • This pattern includes some crochet lingo. When you see ‘– 12 sts’ at the end of a sentence, this is the number of sts you will have after working that round.
    • The pattern includes diagrams to help visualize how the Pullover is made and put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before crocheting.
    • Finished measurements and schematics show the unstretched measurements of the Pullover. This sweater was designed to be close fitting and to be worn with negative ease (negative ease means that the garment should measure less than your actual body measurements).
