Crochet Hooded Men’s Sweater Part II

I do believe I left off where I was working on the sleeves of this sweater. After I finished the sleeves I then proceeded to work on the hood!  It had taken me longer to finish all the pieces than I wanted it to.  Sometimes I just wish there were more time in a day! 🙂

Here is the hood to the sweater after I had it sewn together.  After I had the hood finished I started sewing the body of the sweater together.  Once the sides on the body were sewn together I then started to sew on the sleeves.

Here I have one sleeve sewn into the sweater. The sweater is sewn together with the same yarn that it is made from and a yarn needle.

This picture shows the other sleeve being sewn into the body of the sweater.

The sweater is all finished! My husband is the reluctant model who did not want to have his face in the photo so he came up with the idea of putting the paper in front of his face inside the hood! lol I can honestly say that I was laughing the whole time I was taking the pictures!

I have to say at least in this picture he did not have to worry about being seen! I was happy with the way the sweater all came together and with the way it looks!  If you have any questions or just want to tell me what you think of the sweater please feel free to contact me 🙂

This sweater is also listed in my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/Dunmirecrochetcorner  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!!

Crochet Men’s Hooded Sweater Part I

As this Friday draws to a close and evening approaches I thought I would bring you along with me on what happens when I make a Sweater!

Here are my tools of the trade. Well some of them anyway.  My tablet is full of patterns that I have written down in a language that only I can understand! 🙂  I have come up with my own form of shorthand.  Anyone else would look at it and wonder how on earth you were suppose to follow any of this! lol

This is part of the pattern process that I use. This is where I figure out what I want for a stitch and what size the sweater is going to be.  You can see it does remind you of a sewing pattern.

Here I have the Front of the Sweater finished. It does take me a while to finish each piece for this sweater. The making of this Sweater from start to finish takes me approx 25 hrs for a size Med. It does depend on the size of the Sweater as to how long it takes me to finish it. I love being able to try out different colors and stitches to see what I like or I think someone else might like. It is amazing and fun when you start to play around with colors and you find out what ones blend well together. You sure can come up with some crazy combinations!

At the moment I am in the process of making the sleeves so you will have to stay tuned to find out what they are going to look like and what happens next!  Thanks for taking a look and hope you tune in for the next part! 🙂
