Crochet a unique sweater that kids will love to wear! This simple sweater was designed and tested for crocheters of all levels. There is also a complete video tutorial.

This modern sweater is worked from the top down in rows. Simple increases are used to create the yoke, followed by a sleeve separation. The body features the cute bobble stitches that make this sweater unique. Ribbing and button bands are added next. Finally, the sleeves are worked flat and seamed at the end.
