Special Stitch – Granny Square
Please use this link to get you started on the Granny Square.

Main part of Sweater: G Hook
I used the above Granny Square stitch to make the main part of the sweater.
I would do 3 rounds of each color
I made 27 rounds. You can do more or less depending on the size
After you have made the main part in the size you want you then put 2 corners together to form the armholes.
I used stitch markers to hold the corners together while I used the Aubergine color and my I hook to SC around the large
opening of the sweater.
I made 3 Rounds of HDC in the Aubergine color

Changed color to Lilac
Made 3 Rounds of DC
Changed color to Pewter
Made 4 Rounds of DC
Tie off and weave in ends.

Sleeves: Using I Hook
Attach the yarn at the point of where the corners were were put together and SC around armhole opening
Now you will flip your sweater inside out because you will slip stitch the armhole closed and leaving a small opening. You
want the seam to be on the inside of your sweater.
You are going to slip stich until you have 37 sts left for your sleeve ( you can leave a smaller or larger opening)
Once you made your opening, you then Sc around the sleeve opening.
I then made 3 rounds of Hdc’s
I then made 2 rounds of Dc’s
Then I made 4 rounds of FPDC & BPDC
Tie off and weave in ends

You can add a toggle button which I might do but for now I just wrap myself in it

I have gotten a lot of compliments on this so I’m super stoked to share it so you can make it for yourself or a friend

All Done!
