Something you should know
This unusual construction of this sweater makes it a perfect project for the more adventurous crocheter. It is designed around four large multi-coloured square motifs - one each for the front, back and sleeves. After making the squares, the side sections of the body are worked sideways, while the yoke is worked in the round.
Colour A is the main colour, and is also used on the 7th and 10th rounds of the crochet square. Colour B is used at the centre of the square and as you’re working out from the centre of the square, you will also use colours C, D and E.
A = Cinder Black, B = True Blue, C = Timber Wolf, D = Lipstick Red, E = Nude Pink
