Here it is, the final portion of the London Child Sweater! I’m sure you’re all going to be finishing up those last minute holiday gifts this month, and this one sure is worth it! And if you want to make the Adult version to match, you can now find them on Etsy and Ravelry!
Personally, I only have one more sweater to finish before Christmas, and I can’t remember the last time I was this on track to having easy holiday gifting! Usually I’m frantically crocheting a last minute hat or something, but this year, I actually got everything done early – must have something to do with being stuck at home a lot more than usual! (Have to look on the bright side of things!)
So, last week you worked on the main body of the sweater, and now you’re going to finish off the ribbing and do the sleeves!
Ribbing: (same for all sizes)
Continuing from where you left off, Ch5.
Row 1: In back loop, sl st in 2nd chain from the hook and across to the sweater body. Sl st in two stitches of the sweater body.
Row 2: Turn. Skip the 2 stitches in the sweater body. Sl st across. (4).
Row 3: Ch1. Turn. Sl st in back loop of ea st across to the sweater body. Sl st in two stitches of the sweater body. (4)
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until fully around the base of the sweater. Sl st to starting chain. FO. Weave in ends.
Sleeves: (repeat for both)
Attach yarn in the left-most chain of the under arm.
Round 1. Ch2. Dc2tog in join and in the horizontal dc of the arm/body split. Dc2tog in the same horizontal dc and in the first skipped dc of the yoke. Dc in 19 (19, 20, 23) sts. Dc2tog in final dc and in the horizontal dc of the arm/body split. Dc2tog in the same horizontal dc and in the last chain of the underarm. Dc in 0 (2, 1, 2) sts of the under arm.
