Granny Squares sweater is made in one of my favorite color: turquoise combined with off white color. I had this yarn for almost 3 years, I have bought it in a vacation, like a souvenir and I just did’t know what to crochet or knit with it, and I’ve kept it for something special!

I love this  Granny Square sweater! It looks even better then I’ve imagined! It’s so soft and worm, perfect for this autumn and so easy to crochet it. In just 2 or 3 days you can have a new lovely sweater in your favorite colors.

The final dimensions of the Granny Squares sweater are: 46 cm (18 “) width and 60 cm (23,5”) long (including the shoulders).

For this sweater I’ve used 300 g turquoise and 300 g off white and a 4 mm hook.

 

A soft and fabulous acrylic yarn in a variety of beautiful colors. I love the amazing colorways, there is something for everyone and they can be combined so beautifully. Here you can buy this yarn:

The Video Tutorial for the granny square:

For this pattern you have to crochet 18 granny squares: 9 for the front and 9 for the back. Join together 9 granny squares to make a big square for the base of the front panel and the other 9 for the base of the back panel.

For now on you will need to work around the front panel and the back one so that you will form the back and the front of your sweater. The both sides are worked in the same way. First I will show you a chart how to do it:

Now, in order to finish the front panel you have to crochet 2 rows of dc on left and right side. After that you need to crochet 5 rows for the shoulders. See how to do it in the chart above. For me is much easier to make that directly on the panel, but you can crochet the sides and the shoulders separately and then sew it with the front panel.

Crochet the same the back panel.

Sew both front and back panel together, or you can join them together with single crochet ( I like to join my work with sc because I love the little lines are formed on the sides- the turquoise lines for this sweater). Don’t forget the armholes.

The sleeves: 

I’ve crocheted the sleeves directly on the top. But you can crochet them separately and sew it on the sweater.

Starting from the armhole you can make them in round with dc, or you can crochet back and forth with dc. The last 7-10 rounds crochet the ribbing.

For the bottom ribbing crochet 10 rounds:

For the neck line follow the chart bellow:
