I have only crocheted a few accessories up until now, and wanted to have a go at a sweater, as that's my thing. I couldn't find any patterns I liked, so I'm having a go at writing my own. I learnt how to rib for the hem, and then started working trebles in the round. I figured out (the hard way!) that I needed to turn my work after every row, otherwise it would look different when I came to work back and forth at the armholes! So this is attempt no. 2 and I'm really happy with how it turned out :-)
Other : I used a lot of stitch markers to start with, placed at every 10 stitches. I found that with so many stitches in each row, (220) I didn't want to be counting each time! I used a tapestry needle to sew up the shoulder and underarm seams.
