Crochet Stripes Sweater

What I love about the stripes sweater is the vertical stripes running through the center of the sweater. It is so easy to make and it’s beginner friendly as it makes use of simple crochet stitches. It looks great in all colour combinations. You can find the written pattern below.

The 0-6 months instructions are given below. The pdf pattern contains instructions for 7 sizing options from 0-6 months up to 10 years. The pdf pattern contains photo instructions to make the pattern easier to follow.
