Crochet Diamond Stitch Cardigan with Pockets | Pattern & Tutorial DIY


for this project any category 3-yarn
will work but I used a full skein of baby bernat sport yarn in lilac bouquet
and a quarter skein of baby gray and white as for tools a five millimeter
hook scissors stitch markers and a tape measure there’s an optional written
pattern that can help out to link is in the description if you’d like to grab
that and follow along and watch to the end of the video to find out how to
enter this week’s giveaway we’re using six stitches for this project and they
will be as follows chain slip stitch single crochet double-crochet treble crochet and herringbone stitch this tutorial is
for a size small but you can adjust it for your size and we explain how to in
the video so let’s get started getting this cardigan started we’re first going
to grab our category 3 yarn make a slipknot we’re gonna grab our 5
millimeter hook and we’re gonna start off by making a chain that goes from the
side of your body in towards the middle of your body – 2 inches because we will
be having a border that we’re going to work on later and it also needs to be in
multiples of 4 so for me that’s going to be a chain out of 20 or that comes out
to about five and a half inches or fourteen centimeters now that we have
our base chain we’re going to block off that last chain we’re going to do a
chain up of one and then into that loop that we blocked off or the second loop
from our hook we’re going to be going in with a single crochet and for this first
row we’re just going to be putting one single crochet into every loop that we
have going all the way down our work but when we get to the last loop go ahead
and stop I’ll meet you guys there because we will be switching out our
colors now that we’ve made it all the way down to our last loop on our chain
we will be switching out our colors so we’re gonna do that together so all that
is is inserting our hook into that last loop we’re going to yarn over pull
through just like how we normally would but instead of doing a yarn over and
pulling through two we’re going to grab our next color and we’re just going to
place this onto our hook and they were just gonna pull it through those last
two loops and then once when we have that we’re going to cut our base color
or our first color we’re going to tie the two tail ends together and then we
can get started on the next row so right before we get started with our next row
I’m just going to show you guys this little swatch of what we have for our
front panel so we are now currently working on row number two which is going
to be a row of herringbone and I just wanted to bring this back so you guys
can see what the color portions are gonna look like so we’re just gonna have
a little white piping along the bottom and then also along the top portion of
our detail and then in the middle you guys can pick whatever color you guys
want for the Bonz the diamond pattern and then
another herringbone and then the body is going to be also whatever you guys want
but I picked this very very pretty very gated yarn and from here we’re just
gonna work all the way up until we reach our shoulder but I just wanted to show
you guys some what this portion would look like so you guys can pick and
choose what colors you guys like but once when we have this we’re gonna go on
with the herringbone stitch together so working on our first row of herringbone
it’s going to be fairly simple we’re gonna start off by doing a chain out of
two we’re gonna flip our work and then from here we’re going to prepare for a I
guess double crochet but not really we’re going to yarn over once and then
into that same loop that we have our two chains and – we’re gonna yarn over pull
through and then once we get here we’re not going to yarn over we’re going to
grab this first loop that we have that’s right next to our hook and we’re gonna
pull this underneath the second loop you may have to just pull the second loop
over the first one it might be a little bit easier that way but once we have
that we’re going to yarn over and pull through just one we should have two
loops on our hope and then we’re gonna yarn over pull through two let’s do the
next one together we’re gonna do a yarn over insert our hook into that next loop
we’re gonna yarn over pull through once we get here we’re gonna pull that first
one underneath our second loop from here yarn over pull through one yarn over
pull through two let’s do the next one one more time just a little bit faster
yarn over insert your hook into that next loop yarn over pull through pull
that first loop oh okay let’s get back to there well that first loop underneath
that second loop yarn over pull through one yarn over pull through two as you
guys can see everything is starting to slant a little bit which is perfect
that’s exactly what we wanted so we’re just gonna keep doing this all the way
down once we make it to the end were actually going to do a chain above two
into another row of herringbone stitches but I’ll meet you guys back just so that
we can get that started together so we are back putting one herringbone
stitch into every loop that we have into our first row of single crochets and
from here we’re going to work on another herringbone stitch row so it’s going to
be exactly the same as the first one all we’re going to do is do a chain of book
two we’re gonna flip our work we’re gonna prepare for I guess a herringbone
insert our hook into that first loop yarn over pull through take that first
loop slide that underneath the second one we’re gonna yarn over pull through
one yarn over pull through two we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down so we have just made it down to the end
with our second row of herringbone this is what our work should be looking like
we have our first row of single crochet second row of herringbone third row of
herringbone and now we’re going to be doing a few rows of our diamond stitch
and that’s going to be interesting so let’s get that started together but the
first row is the easy part that’s just gonna be a row of single crochet so all
we’re going to do is do a chain up of one flip our work and then all we’re
gonna do is put one single crochet into every loop that we have going all the
way down and then once when we get here I know that in the beginning I said make
sure that you’re working in multiples of four you do want to still do that but I
will say just once when you get to the end of the single crochet row make sure
that you’re still working in your multiples of four because with the
herringbone you could easily add an extra loop or take away an extra loop so
just make sure that you’re working in with the same amount of loops that you
guys started with and then we can get started with our diamond stitch so
you’ve just made it down with our what is this one two three fourth row our
fourth row is the first row of our diamond stitch and that was just a row a
single crochet going all the way down and then after this we’re going to be
doing one regular row of double crochet so we’re going to start off by doing a
chain up of three that counts as a double flip our work prepare for a
double and from here put one double crochet into every loop that we have
going all the way down okay double crochet all finished up and
then once when we get here we’re gonna go in with our diamonds so let’s stick
together for most of this thing so what we’re gonna do from here is to a chain
up of one you will be flipping our work once we get here we’re going to do a
front post treble crochet into the first row of this diamond section that we have
so not into the herringbones so we should have from the beginning really
quickly single crochet herringbone one herringbone two single crochet double
crochet we’re gonna be working into this single crochet row that we made right
here we’re actually going to be preparing for a treble crochet and then
we’re going to do our treble crochet front post into this second single
crochet post that we have so we’re going to insert our hook behind that single
crochet post from here we’re going to yarn over pull through and we got a
treble crochet like normal so yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through
two yarn over and pull through two that is one half of our diamond stitch and
from here we’re going to be doing three single crochet into the next three loops
but the way that we do that is we want to make sure that we’re not going into
that same loop that we’re technically just made with our treble crochet so all
we’re gonna do is just look at the previous row skip that one loop that our
treble crochet counts as and then from there we’re gonna go in with three
single crochet so there’s one two and then three once we have those three
single crochets we’re going to be doing another front post trouble but we’re
going to be combining two of them together so let’s stick with each other
for a little bit we’re going to yarn over twice that is us preparing for our
trouble we’re going to insert our hook into this same single crochet posts that
our first front post trouble going into that makes the bottom V of the diamond
so we’re going to insert our hook into that same one you’re gonna yarn over
pull through and then we’re going to do the trouble just like normal but not
yarn over and pull through the last two loops so we’re gonna yarn over pull
through one yarn over pull through two we should have two loops on our hook
once when we have these two loops on our hook we’re going to yarn over twice
again and then going to insert our treble crochet and
do another front post treble into the single crochet row so where this first
front post trouble is we’re going to count out 4 loops 1 2 3 and we’re going
to insert our hook into this 4th single crochet so insert your hook behind that
single crochet yarn over pull through and then from here we’re going to be
trouble crocheting like normal kind of because we do have an extra loop so
we’re going to yarn over pull through yarn over pull through once when we have
three loops on our hook we’re going to yarn over pull through all three loops
and we have combined this treble from this first diamond and then the first
treble from our second diamond that we’re about to make so let’s actually do
that again we’re going to not to go into this next loop that we have because the
treble crochet that we just made counts as that loop so we’re gonna be skipping
one and do three single crochet into the next three there’s one let’s do that
again two and three and then now we’re going
to do another set of treble crochet 2 together so we’re going to yarn over
twice and then we’re going to insert our hook into the same single crochet post
that this first side of our diamond is into so we’re gonna insert yarn over
pull through we’re gonna yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
we have these two loops on our hook and then once we have those two we’re going
to start up our next diamond so we’re going to do a yarn over up two and then
from where this first single crochet post is we’re gonna count out four one
two three four single crochets insert your hook behind that fourth single
crochet post and then treble we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull
through two yarn over pull through two we should have three loops on our hook
once we have that we’re going to yarn over pull through all three loops just
like that and now you guys can see we have the bottom of one diamond the
bottom of two diamond and a half and so we’re just going to do the next one
together a little bit more quickly just so we can kind of get through it because
I know that you guys are doing well then we can just get started with the
rest so let’s finish off this one and start up the next one I’m gonna let you
guys have at it from there but once when we get here we will be looking at the
previous row skipping one loop because the loop that we just made with these
two treble crochets counts as this loop so into the one right after that go in
with three single crochets there is one there is two and then there is three
from here we will prepare for a treble insert our treble crochet behind the
post that we have our first treble crochet post behind yarn over pull
through we’re gonna yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
we should have two loops on our hook we’re going to prepare for another
treble from here into the single crochet row we’re going to be counting out four
single crochets so there’s one two three and then into that fourth we’re going to
insert our hook we’re going to yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two
yarn over pull through two from here we should have three loops we’re going to
yarn over pull through all three loops and that is it we’re actually going to
keep doing this all the way down but once when we get to that last treble
crochet we are gonna do a little special something or other I guess just to make
sure that it is pin down to this last loop that we have so go ahead and do all
of your front post troubles this entire bottom diamond row and then once we get
to the last one I will meet you guys back so that we can insert it into the
last loop together so we are back and we just gone all the way down with all of
our bottom portions of our diamonds except for that last one we’re going to
be doing this one together so that we can pin down that last loop to our work
so once when we get here we’re going to do a yarn over of two that’s how we
start off all of our troubles and then we should have just a half of a treble
right here so we’re going to be going into that same front post that we went
into is our previous trouble we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull
through two yarn over pull through two we should have two loops left on your
hook once when we have those two loops we’re going to be inserting our hook
into the last loop that we have into the previous row once we have that we’re
going to yarn over and pull through we should now have three
loops on our hook but once when we get here we’re going to pull that first loop
underneath these next two loops are just going to pull through those two loops
and now this last loop is nice and pinned down because if we just went in
with a regular treble crochet which we could but it would just kind of be
hanging out loosey-goosey and we don’t quite want that just yet so once when we
have that we are all done with our first row of our bottom diamonds and it’s
looking pretty good I’m actually very excited about this but once when we have
that we’re going to do a chain up of three that counts as a double crochet
we’re gonna flip our work and then from here we’re just gonna go all the way
down putting one double crochet into every loop that we have so we have just
gone in with our row of double crochet pretty simple now we’re just going to go
in and close off these diamond bottoms that we have with diamond tops I guess
so once then when you get here we’re gonna do a chain up of one flip our work
and then into the first two loops that we have we’re gonna go in with a single
crochet into each so there’s one and then there’s two and this portion is
gonna be a smidge bit easier because we already have established posts to go
into there’s not gonna be any real counting for us to do but once we get
here we’re going to prepare for a trouble and then into this front post
trouble that we have in the previous row we’re going to yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two we will be doing two
treble crochets together again so from here we’re going to yarn over twice
insert your hook just behind this first treble right here
yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
once we have those three loops on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through
all three loops and that is our first diamond it looks so cool okay so once we
get here we’re going to skip the loop in the previous row because the loop that
we just made counts as that loop then we’re gonna go in with three singles so
here’s one two three and then from here we’re going to
do another set of two treble crochet together so yarn over twice we’re going
to be going behind the treble crochet post that we have in that bottom diamond
row here we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn
over pull through two once we have those last two loops on our hook we’re going
to pull some extra yarn we kind of yarn over twice and then just behind this
first front post treble crochet because we could very easily go behind both of
these are just gonna be going behind the first one we’re gonna yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two yarn over pull
through three and that closes off this diamond let’s do the next one together
just because I’m kind of excited we’re going to skip this next loop and then
single crochet into the next three loop so there’s one two and three we’re going
to prepare for trouble behind this the next available front post treble crochet
we’re gonna go in with a treble we’re gonna yarn over pull through two pull
through two once we have three loops on our hook we’re going to yarn over twice
go behind that next front post treble crochet that we have yarn over pull
through gonna yarn over pull through two pull through two once we have three
loops on our hook I’m gonna yarn over pull through all three and that is it
we’re going to continue going all the way down with our tops of our diamond
rope going all the way down and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can
do our next row together so we are back and we have just finished going in with
our last diamond stitch and what we’re gonna do from here is just close off
this last row together and then we can work our way up to the next one’s so
since this last one is finished up we’re going to take a look at the previous row
we should have three loops left and we’re going to be skipping this loop
because the loop that we just made with our treble crochets counts as this one
so we’re gonna do one single crochet and then – and now our diamond stitches are
all done and then once when we have this we’re going to go back to doing our
herringbone so we’re just gonna do the first one together we’re going to do a
chain up up to flip our work we’re going to prepare for herringbone
insert our hook into that next loop yarn over pull through we should have
three loops on our hook and once we get here we’re gonna pull that first loop
underneath that’s Kent loop just like that from here yarn over pull through
one yarn over pull through two and that is our herringbone again so we’re gonna
do another set of two herringbone stitches both rows are exactly the same
so go ahead and go down with herringbone stitches all the way down once we make
it to the end do a chain up of two and do herringbone stitches back but leave
the last one because we will be switching out our colors okay so two
rows of herringbone stitches almost finished up we just have the last one to
do into this last row that we just made but this is what things are looking like
right now I’m just gonna give you guys a quick rundown of what we did so we have
Row one single crochet row two and three herringbone Rowen four single crochet
row five double crochet row six first row of our diamond stitch row seven
double crochet row eight closed-off our diamond stitches row nine herringbone
row ten herring bone so that is where we are currently at and now we’re going to
switch out for our same color that we did the bottom piping with and that is
my white color so we’re going to do the herringbone until we get to that last
start over pull through so into this last loop that we have we have just one
herringbone lot to do we’re gonna insert yarn over pull through we’re gonna yarn
over pull through one yarn over pull through two now at this point we would
yarn over pull through two but we will be switching out our colors so let me
and grab you grab that color we’re going to insert that on to our hook and pull
through we can now cut our first color tie the tail ends together and then get
started on this next row which is just a single crochet row so I’m going to cut
tie the two tail ends do a chain up of one and then single crochet all the way
down until we get to that last loop because we will be switching out our
colors again for the body color so go ahead and single crochet all the way
down and then I’ll meet you guys back once we reach that last loop all right so we have made it down with
our piping color single crochet row we just have one more loop left to go into
and we will be switching out our color for the body colors so what we’re gonna
do is go into that last loop we’re going to yarn over pull through what we would
normally yarn over pull through to close off a single crochet but we will not
because we’re switching out our colors so we’re gonna grab this next color and
just pull it through those two loops that we have on our hook already cut the
first color which is my white and then we will tie the tail ends together and
then we can get started with our modified edge stitch we have just cut
our base color tied our two tail ends together and now we will be going in
with our modified sedge stitch I know so far this piece has been riddled with
stitches new and old but this is what we have come up with so deal with this for
now please and thank you but once when we get here what we’re gonna do let’s do
a chain up of one flip our work and then our modified stud stitch is actually
fairly easy we’re first going to be going into this first loop that we have
the one that our chained up one is in with a single crochet once when we have
that we’re gonna be doing a double crochet into that same loop so we’re
gonna prepare for a double and insert it into that same loop that our single
crochet just went into and then do a regular single earth regular single
regular double crochet and this is what we should have so far and I know what
you guys are thinking we’re increasing but no because we’re actually going to
be skipping this next loop so we’re gonna skip this loop then into this next
loop that we have so I guess the third one we’re gonna go in with another set
of single and double into that same loop and that is basically the entire side
stitch but let’s do a couple together really quick we’re gonna go in with a
single crochet and then into that same loop a double crochet and that is our
next one from here we’re always going to be skipping one loop into the next
single crochet and double into that same loop let’s do one more together and then
we’ll do this edge stitches all the way to the end and then we’ll start up the
next row together so we’re gonna skip up this next loop go into the loop right
after that with a single and a double all into that same
loop and we’re going to keep doing this all the way down once we make it to the
end we’re going to chain up one flip our work and then do more modified such
stitches but instead of going into that first loop we’re actually going to be
going into the loop right after that so I’ll meet you guys back just to give you
guys a visual on which loop to go into we have just made it down with our first
row of such stitches we’re going to do a chain up of one flip our work and then
instead of going into this first loop like the one that we first went into for
this first row such stitches that we wanted to we’re actually going to be
skipping that one and then going into the loop after that with the same
pattern so single and double crochet all into the same loop from there skip one
loop and then single and double into the next and this is basically it we’re
gonna keep going down back and forth just like this until we get a certain
height that we want this all depends on how long you guys want your front panel
to be but we’re gonna keep going until you have the height that we want that
will actually be telling us to give us our pockets and I already have one of
them slightly done so I’m just gonna show you guys where it is and I’ll meet
you guys back so that we can do our pockets lit and then go up with the rest okay so I have just a little bit of both
of my front panels done this is one that we’re currently working on but I just
wanted to show you guys what we’re doing until we get to our slit but as you guys
can see I already have my pocket slit right up in here so we’re just gonna do
regular Sledge stitches all the way up until we get to the height that we want
our pocket to be at and I have measured mine all the way from the bottom up to
where I want the pocket to be and that is about six inches or 15 centimeters or
if you guys are following along with the pattern that is a total of 24 rows and
then we’re gonna go in with this little slit for the pocket but I’ll meet you
guys back once when I get to my pocket height I guess that we want to get two
and then I’ll show you guys how to do the pocket from there so we’re back and
we have our total from the bottom all the way up to where at our total of 26
rows or 6 inches or 15 centimeters but this is all gonna be dependent on you
guys but this is just a link that I want so that I can add in my pockets but
when we get here we’re actually going to need to do just a little bit of
measuring we’re going to want to figure out and see where we want our pockets to
be and I have already figured mine out I’m going to go in with four single
crochet do a chain that goes across twelve stitches and then go in with the
last little bit of four single crochets but this is just for me but let me just
go in with my stitch markers so that there’s a better visual and then we can
get started from there so we now have our stitch markers into the spot where
we want are at slits to be and just to let you guys know from one stitch marker
to the next this is going to be our slit and that is a total of let me look at my
notes really quick a total I have three and a half inches or nine centimeters
from stitch marker to stitch marker but this can be as wide or as little as you
guys want it’s all dependent on you or you guys don’t have to do a pocket at
all you guys and just keep going in with your modified slip stitches and call it
a day but since I do like pockets I am going to start off by doing a chain up
of one we’re gonna flip our work in this row is going to be a row of single
crochets so all we’re gonna do is go in with single crochets all the way up
until we hit our stitch marker once we hit that we can take out our stitch
marker we’re at our first one now and then from here I’m going to count out my
loops even though I know it’s already 12 I’m gonna count one two three six seven
eight nine 10 11 12 once when we have that twelve or however
many loops you guys have we’re going to make a chain of that same number count
so I had twelve loops so I’m going to do a chain of twelve and then once when we
have our twelve we are going to count out the twelve loops in our base one two
three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve and then into the loop
right after the twelve we’re gonna go in with single crochets until we reach the
end so here’s one two three and then four and now that we have our row of
single crochets we can go back into doing our modified Sledge stitches so
let’s just do the first one together we’re gonna do a chain above one flip
our work and then into that first loop we’re gonna insert our hook with a
single crochet into that same loop go in with a double once we have that skip one
loop go in with a single into the same loop with a double and then we’re going
to keep doing this all the way down including over the
chain that we have and then from here we’re actually just going to keep going
back and forth with our modified Sledge stitches all the way up until this hits
our shoulder so go ahead and just keep doing this I’ll meet you guys back in
just a little bit so that we can get started on the rest so we are back and
we have just finished up going all the way up with the length of our cardigan
and from the bottom all the way up until the top where I finished I have a total
of 76 rows and that comes out to about 26 inches or 66 centimeters and as you
guys can see I didn’t close off this last stitch that we have at the very end
because along this end were actually going to be doing our inner border for
the front panel so once when we get here we’re going to be switching out for
whatever color you guys want for the inner border I’m gonna be switching out
from my white and then from there we can go in with our first row so switching on
our colors is going to remain the same we’re just going to place that next
color yarn onto our hook and pull through those two loops we are going to
cut the original color that we were just working with tie the tail ends and then
we can now start working along the length of what we have once when we get
here for this first front panel that we’re working on whatever end that we
end on we can just continue to go in using that side with our front border so
what we’re going to do is go in with a single crochet so all we’re going to do
is chain up one and then into this first loop that we have which is a side double
we’re gonna go in with two single crochet so there is one and then there’s
two once when you have those two we’re going to skip over to this next big loop
that we have and put two single crochet into there as well we’re basically just
going to keep doing this all the way down the length of what we have
including the bottom portion that has our herringbone stitches and our diamond
stitches we’re just going to put single crochets into each loop going all the
way down and once we have that we can work our way back up with
ribbing sell me to guys back once when we have gone all the way down the side now that we made it all the way down to
the end with our row of single crochets we’re now going to be working in with
our double crochets because that’s going to help us prep for our row after this
which is going to be front and back post double crochets so let’s just get into
this together we’re first going to go in with a chain up of three that counts as
a double we’re going to flip our work and from here SuperDuper easy we’re just
going to go in putting one double crochet into every loop that we have
going all the way back down our length once we make it to the end we’ll meet
each other together so that we can do our next row we are at the end of our
row of regular double crochet going all the way down the side and this next row
we’re going to be going in with front and back post double crochets so that’s
going to be fairly simple what we’re going to do is do a chain up of three
that counts as a double crochet from here we’re going to flip our work and
then the first post that we’re going to be going into we’re going to be doing a
front post double crochet so all that is is preparing for a double crochet and
then instead of going in through these top loops that we usually go into we’re
actually going to be going behind these posts that we left for ourselves that’s
basically just the double crochet portion in the previous row so from here
all we’re gonna do is double crochet like normal so we’re going to pull
through pull through two pull through two and this is our front post double
crochet once when we have that we’re going to be going in with our back post
so we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and this back post we’re going
to be inserting our hook behind our work but over this next post that we have and
then through the next loop from here we’re going to yarn over pull through
and then double crochet again like normal so yarn over pull through two
yarn over pull through two let’s do one more set of front and back post double
crochets together we’re going to prepare for a front post double crochet into
this next post that we have we’re going to be inserting our hook behind the post
and then bringing it through the other side of our gap and then finishing it
off with a regular double crochet let’s do it one more back
so prepare for a double crochet go behind our work we’re gonna bring our
hook over this next post that we have and through the next loop yarn over pull
through pull through two pull through two and we have front and back post
double crochets this is going to give us some really good ribbing for this front
portion and then once when we make it all the way to the end I will meet you
guys back we just made it down doing our first row of front and back post double
crochets and we’re going to do another row of front impact post double crochets
and this is going to be exactly the same thing that we did in the previous row so
we’re going to get started on that together we’re going to start off by
doing a chain up of three that counts as a double crochet we’re going to flip our
work and then once when we flip it into this first double crochet post that we
have in the previous row we’re just gonna do whatever post we have in that
row so this first one that we have is a front post single crochet so I’m gonna
do a front post on top of there so we’re going to yarn over insert our hook
behind that post and then go in with a regular double crochet and we’re just
gonna do the next post together as well the next is a back post so we’re going
to prepare for a double crochet insert our hook behind our work and over that
post and then we’re going to double crochet like normal and keep going all
the way down with front and back post double crochets we are back and we have
just finished up doing our front border and this is what our piece should look
like so far I’m going to end my front border here so I’m going to cut and tie
and then from here I’m going to do the exact same thing that we did over here
up the length and then once we get here I’m going to meet you guys back so that
we can do the border together it’s going to be the exact same thing I just want
to make sure that we’re going in on the correct side so I will meet you guys
back once when we have this entire sequence of our herringbone diamond
herringbone and then our modified Sledge stitches with our pocket all the way up
all that’s gonna be exactly the same so go ahead and do that we’ll be back
we’ve just finished up going in with our other front panel and now we’re going to
want to cut and tie where we ended and we’re gonna insert our hook into this
other side so that we can do the other front panel for the border right here
but what we’re gonna do is actually just to double-check that we’re making sure
we’re putting it into the right corner is look at where the diamond stitches
are facing up because this is obviously going to be the outside and we’re going
to take a look at the other one that we have as well because we want these to be
facing up we need the other one to mirror it so all we’re gonna do is just
attach it to this other corner and then go in with this side of our front border
together so since we’ve ended at this corner we’re going to chain up one and
cut grab our front board or color make a slipknot we’re going to be inserting our
hook into the opposite corner from where we just cut insert our yarn onto our
hook pull through and then from here it’s going to be the exact same way that
we did the front border on the other side so we’re gonna go into the row of
single crochet going all the way down once we make it to the end do a chain up
of three do regular double crochets back and then do two rows of front and back
post double crochets from there and then once when we have that go ahead and cut
and tie and we can get started on the bottom border so we’re back and we have
just finished up doing both of our front panels side porters and now we can start
going in with the bottom board as you guys can see I already have one of mine
done and it’s going to be fairly simple we just need to do the same thing on the
other side so the first thing that we’re going to need to do is just go under the
row of single crochet so we’re going to turn our work we’re going to grab our
bottom border color insert our hook into that corner and from here we’re going to
just go across the row of single crochet so we’re going to start off by going
into these side double crochets first so the way that we do that is we’re going
to pull our yarn through our work to a chain of a1 to secure and then into this
first side double we’re going to be going in with two single crochets there
is one and one more into that same side double there is two and then same thing
into the next here is one and then also here’s two
and since we’re so close to the regular loops we’re just going to stick with
each other put two into this next side double as well and then once when we get
here we’re actually just going to go into this first row that we have of our
single crochet that we did for our side panel so that’s just gonna be a single
single crochet and then from here these are just all regular loops so you just
go in with one single crochet into each of those loops then go ahead and keep
doing this all the way down now that we’ve made it all the way down with our
row of single crochet now we can start going in with the length of our bottom
border so all that’s gonna be is about 2 inches or 5 centimeters so that comes
out to about 6 chains once when we have that we’re going to block off that last
chain do a chain up of 3 that counts as a double crochet prepare for a double
crochet insert our hook into that loop that we blocked off with a fourth loop
from our hook with just one double crochet now once we have that we’re
going to turn our work and then go ahead and put one double crochet into every
loop that we have going back down our chain and then I’ll meet you guys back
so that we can connect it into the base together we’ve made it all the way down
with our row of double crochets and now we’re just going to connect into that
base so what we’re gonna do is count out the next to available loops so here is
one and then here is two we’re going to slip stitch into that second loop to
close off this first double crochet row and that’s that and the ones when we
have that we’re going to do two slip stitches up the next two loops to work
our way up to the next row so there is one and then there’s ooh
ish there we go and now we’re gonna flip our work and then from here we’re just
going to be going on with back loop double crochet it’s the same thing just
in through the back loops so we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet then we’re
gonna insert our hook in through that first back loop with a regular double
crochet and we’re doing this to get some ribbing but we’re just going to keep
doing this all the way down once when you reach the end we’re going to do a
chain of three flip our work once when we get back to the base we’re going to
be slip stitching into the second available loop that we have in our base
to close off that row and then to work our way up to the next row we are going
to slip stitch up the next two loops then we’re gonna keep going back and
forth just like that until we don’t have any more loops left to go into and then
once when you’ve done one go ahead and do the same thing on the other side so
we are back and we have just finished up going in with our bottom border for both
of our front panels that we have and we are actually all finished up with this
and next we can go in with our back portion and the first thing that we’re
going to need to do with the back is actually measure out and see how long we
need it to be so the easiest way to do that is actually to put these two panels
up to ourselves where they would lay on us and then from here we’re going to
measure from this corner all the way across across your neck all the way to
this other corner and then we’re going to be making a chain that comes out to
that length remembering that the chain does need to be in multiples of four as
well and just to let you guys know I have a total of 18 inches or 46
centimeters and that comes out to about 68 chains so I’m going to go ahead and
make that chain and then I’ll meet you guys back and now that we have our chain
what we’re going to do is block off that last chain do a chain up of one and then
into that chain that we blocked off or the second chain from our hook we’re
going to be going in with one single crochet into every single loop that we
have going all the way back down once we make it over to the last loop that we
have well we meet each other back because we will be switching out our
colors but this is basically going to be exactly the same way that we did the
front panels I’m just gonna do the first few rows with you guys and I’ll let you
guys have at it from there now that we’ve made it all the way down with our
first row of single crochets we should have just one loop left because we are
going to be switching out our colors together so in order to do that we’re
going to be inserting our hook into that last loop we’re going to yarn over and
pull through once when we have that we are going to grab our secondary color
place that onto our hook pull through both of those loops once we have that we
are going to cut the base color tie the two tail ends together and then we’ll
get started on the first stitch that we have in the herringbone rows and then
I’ll let you guys go from there now that our secondary color is nice and
snug all tied in we are ready to get started with our next row which is our
herringbone stitches so let’s just do the first one together to work our way
up to the herringbone stitch row we’re going to chain up two from there we’re
going to flip our work and we’re going to prepare for a herringbone stitch
we’re gonna insert our hook into that first loop we’re going to yarn over and
pull through once we have three loops on our hook we’re going to take our first
loop and pull it underneath our second loop just like so once we have that
we’re gonna yarn over pull through that first loop yarn over pull through two
loops and we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down until we don’t have any
more loops left from there we’re going to do a chain up of two and then do one
more row of herringbone stitches and then just like in the front we’re gonna
be going in with our diamond stitch rows so I’ll meet you guys back so that we
can do those rows together so I just went in with our two rows of herringbone
stitches and now we’re going to get started on the diamond pattern and the
first row that we need to do for the diamond pattern is a very simple row of
single crochets so really quickly all we’re going to do is do a chain up of
one we’re going to flip our work and then into every loop that we have we’re
just going to be putting one single crochet once we make it to the end we’re
going to do a chain up of three and then we will have a row of double crochets to
do just like how we did for the diamond stitch so go down with single crochets
chain up three work our way back with double crochets and then once we were
ready to actually start going in with the diamond portion I will meet you guys
back we’ve just made our way to the end of our double crochet row the last time
I saw you guys we’re working on our single crochet row we did a chain up of
three and then worked our way back down with regular double crochet rows and now
I can get started with doing the diamond design so what we’re gonna do from here
it’s gonna be the same way we did the front we’re just gonna do the first bit
together we’re gonna do a chain up of one flip our work we’re gonna
automatically prepare for a treble crochet and then into the second single
crochet post that we had and that single crochet row that we did we’re gonna go
in with a front post trouble crochet so we’re gonna insert our hook
yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
yarn over pull through the last two and from here we’re gonna skip one loop that
we have in the previous row go into the next three loops with one single crochet
in each there’s one single crochet two and then three once we get here we’re
going to prepare for another treble crochet but remembering that this is
going to be a treble crochet that we combined with the other bottom portion
of the diamond on the other side so we’re going to prepare for a treble
crochet insert our hook into that same single crochet post that we just put our
previous treble crochet into we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull
through two yarn over pull through two once when we only have two loops on our
hook we’re going to yarn over twice again and then from that single crochet
post that we just went into we’re gonna count out four single crochets here’s
one two three and then four into that fourth single crochet we’re going to be
going in with a front post double crochet so we’re gonna yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two once when we only
have three loops left on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all three
loops and from here we’re going to skip one loop that we have in the previous
row do three single crochets two three and then from here we’re going to do
another front post treble crochet that is combining the end of this diamond to
the beginning of the next diamond and then we’re going to continue doing that
all the way down once when we get to our last front post treble crochet I’ll meet
you guys back just to remind you guys how to connect it into the previous row
and then we can do the rows after that we’ve made our way all the way down with
our row of the bottom half of our diamonds we have this last half to go
into but we are going to do this a little bit differently but the same way
that we did it the first time so what we’re gonna do from here is prepare for
a treble crochet insert our hook into that front post single that we just went
into we’re gonna yarn over pull through pull through two pull through two once
we have two loops on our hook we’re gonna insert our hook into that
last loop from here we’re gonna yarn over pull through one so we only have
three loops left on our hook we’re gonna take that first loop and then pull it
underneath the other two loops and now this row is officially closed off and
we’re ready to go into the next one which is just a row of double crochets
so we’re gonna do a chain up of three flip our work prepare for a double
crochet then put one regular double crochet into every loop that we have
going back down our work we just made it all the way down with our row of double
crochets and now I need to close off the tops of our diamond stitches so what
we’re gonna do is a chain up of one flip our work and then into the first two
loops we’re going to be putting one single crochet into each so there’s one
there’s two from here we’re going to do a front post treble crochet that
combines two of them together so that we can close off this first diamond so what
this is going to be is yarn over twice that counts as a treble crochet we’re
going to insert our hook behind the treble crochet that we had in the
previous row here and over pull through pull through two pull through two we
should have two loops left on our hook once we have that we’re going to yarn
over twice and then go into this next front post treble crochet that we have
in the previous row making sure that we’re only going in through one side and
not through both of these loops that we have we’re going to yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two once when we only
have three loops left we’re going to yarn over pull through all three loops
and then in order to work our way over to the next diamond we’re going to skip
one loop that we have in the previous row insert our hook into the next one
with one two three single crochet and then we’re going to do another set of
treble crochet 2 treble crochets together and we’re going to keep doing
this all the way down we’ve just finished up doing all of our
diamond stitches and the next thing that we’re gonna have to do is go in with our
herringbone stitches just like how we did on the bottom and also in the front
so I’m just going to start that off with you guys and let you guys go from there
we’re going to do a chain above two and flip our work and doing a herringbone
together we’re going to prepare for a herringbone so just yarn over insert
your hook yarn over pull through from here we’re gonna pull that first loop
underneath our second loop and then from here we’re gonna yarn over pull through
one yarn over pull through two and then that is our herringbone stitch we’re
gonna continue going down with this pattern all the way down this row once
we don’t have any more loops left we’re gonna do a chain up of two flip our work
and then do herringbone stitches coming all the way back down but leaving the
last one so that we can do it together so that we can switch out our colors to
our piping color which is our white and then go in with the body after that we are back and we have just finished up
doing both of our herringbone stitch rows so right after we did our diamond
rows we did a chain up of two did herringbones going down one direction
once we got down to the end we did a chain of book2 and did herringbones back
and we just have one more loop left to go into and we left that last loop so
that we can do it together because we will be switching out our colors again
so what we’re gonna do is you’re an over insert our hook into that last loop yarn
over pull through from here we’re gonna pull that first loop underneath our
second loop we should have two loops on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull
through that first loop once when we just have these two loops left we’re
going to grab our next color insert that onto our hook and then pull that color
through the two loops that was on our hook from here cut the base color and
tie the two tail ends together once when you have that do a chain up of one and
this next row is going to be a row of single crochets going all the way down
but once we make it to the end we will be switching out for our body color
which is our variegated color so once when you get to the end the very last
loop go ahead and switch out your colors and then I’ll meet you guys back so that
we can do the modified side stitch together and then I’ll let you guys do
the rest on your own we’ve made it to the end of our single crochet row with
our piping color and we already switched out for our body color and then the only
thing that we’re going to do from here all the way up until we have these same
height as we have for the front panel is modified side stitches so we’re just
gonna do the first few together so really quickly we’re going to do a chain
up of one you will flip our work and then into that same loop that our chain
up of one is in we’re gonna go in with one single crochet then also go in with
a double crochet so those two stitches into one loop once when we have that we
are going to skip one loop go into the loop after that with again one single
and then one double and that’s it we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down
once we make it to the end chain up one and do the same stitches going all the
way back down and this height is going to be the same height that we have for
the front panels that we have so however many rows you guys have make
sure that it’s even then I’ll meet you guys back once when we have all of this
done we are back and we have just finished up going in with the length of
our back portion and the next thing we’re going to do is is going with a
bottom border just like how we did for the front portion so all that is is
inserting our hook into one of the corners it doesn’t matter which one
inserting our bottom border color onto our hook and pull through and then
however many chains you guys made for your front panels you’re going to make
the same amount of chains for your back panel so I made a chain out of six that
came out to about two inches or 5 centimeters so I’m going to pull my yarn
through and start off by making a chain of that same number now that we have our
chain this is going to be exactly the same way that we did the front one so
we’re just gonna start this off together we’re going to block off that last chain
to a chain out of three we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and into
that loop that we blocked off or the fourth loop from our hook we’re gonna go
in with one double crochet once when we have that one we’re going to be
inserting our hook into that next loop with one double crochet we’re gonna keep
doing this all the way down our chain until we get to the base we’re gonna
slip stitch into the base to close off this row and then work our way up to the
next row after that together as well so now that we’ve gone down our chain
putting one double crochet into every loop that we had we’re going to slip
stitch it into the base so how we do that is we’re gonna count up the next to
available loops so here’s one here’s two we’re gonna be inserting our hook into
that second loop with a slip stitch to close off this first row that we just
made for ourselves then once we have that we’re going to be slip stitching up
the next two loops after that so that we can start up the next row once we have
that we’re gonna be flipping our work and then into every back loop that we
have we’re gonna be putting one double crochet so prepare for a double and
insert your hook into that back loop with a double crochet we’re gonna keep
doing this all the way down until we make it to the end once we get to the
end we’re going to Chane above three flip our work and do
more back loop double crochet is going in towards the base once when we get to
the base we’re going to slip stitch into the second loop that we have to close
off that row and then in order to work our way up to the next row we are going
to slip stitch up the next two loops flip our work and then do more back loop
double crochets go ahead and keep doing that all the way along the bottom of our
back piece and then I’ll meet you guys back once when we have cut inside so the
bottom border along the back panel is all finished up and the next thing that
we’re going to have to do is actually connect the back panel to the front
panel nail so how we’re gonna do that is grab one of our front panels one of mine
is already attached I’m just going to show you guys how to do this other one
but I have two quick tips to tell you guys before we actually get started when
we’re actually placing our front panel on to our back panel we’re going to want
to make sure that our diamond stitch is facing each other because once we flip
it inside out we want that to be showing along the outside so the way that my
back panel is laying my diamond stitches are facing up as you guys can see this
is how I did the first one the diamond stitches is facing each other so we’re
going to do the same thing for this panel that we’re about to attach
together and then the second tip that I have is actually making sure that the
border that we did along one side of our front panel is facing the inside because
this is going to be where your body is the side of our front panel and back
panel that has nothing on it that’s going to be the side that we connect to
each other but other than that we are ready to go in with our seam so we’re
going to start off with doing the shoulder first because that’s the
easiest part what we’re going to do is grab the front panel insert our hook
into that corner loop we’re going to grab the back panel and then we’re also
going to be inserting our hook into that corner loop as well once we have that
we’re going to be taking our body color we’re going to make a slipknot insert
that onto our hook and from here we’re just going to go all the way across with
a row of single crochet making sure we’re going in through the front and the
back at the same time so how we’re going to
start this off is by pulling our working yarn through the two loops that we just
inserted our hook into once when we have that you can do a chain up of one that’s
to secure in our work so that we can go on with our single crochet and now is
also an opportune time to weave in some of our ends so that we don’t have as
many – even once we go in later but how we’re going to do that is first we’re
going to insert our hook into the first available loop that we have in the front
panel and then also into the next available loop that we have in the back
panel once when we have that if you guys would like to weave in your ends with me
you guys gonna take all these tail ends that we have and just place it on top of
the loops that we’re working into once when we have that we’re going to single
crochet like normal so we’re gonna yarn over pull through that first loop yarn
over pull through two and that is our first single crochet and also you guys
can see that our tail ends are nicely woven into the middle of this single
crochet so let’s do that again into the first available loop that we
have into the front panel then also I can find it into the first available
loop that we have in the back panel insert our hook into there grab our
tails and just fully set over the loops that we’re working into and single
crochet like normal and that is it we’re going to keep doing this all the way
down except once when we get to the end of our front panel we do have some side
double crochets to go into so we’re going to meet each other back so that we
can do those together but they’re going to be fairly simple now that we’ve made
our way down to our side panel that we have that’s attached to our front panel
what we’re gonna do is just go in with some single crochets into each of these
side double crochets but right before we do that we do have one single crochet
row in between so we’re just gonna find any loop that is somewhere within that
single crochet row we’re going to insert it in through there and then also in
through the next available back loop we’re going to single crochet and now we
can go into our side double crochets so into each side double crochet we
typically do two single crochets so we’re gonna do that still we’re going to
insert our hook into this first side double
and also into the next available loop that we have into the back loop here is
our first single crochet and then we’re going to be going into that same side
double that we just went into because we do need two single crochets into there
so here’s our second one into this first side double and then also insert your
hook into the next available loop in the back loop in the back panel and then
single crochet and we are going to keep doing this until we don’t have any more
loops left to go into into the front panel once we make it to the end go
ahead and cut and tie and now that our shoulder chunk is all connected we can
go in with the same seam that we just did but along the sides going all the
way up but the first thing we’re going to need to do is figure out how wide we
want our armhole to be I have tried mine on and I’ve inserted my stitch marker
and the spot that I have my stitch marker is actually from the top down
about seven-and-a-half inches or 19 centimeters so you guys can adjust from
there we’ll go ahead and insert your stitch marker and once we have that we
can go in with our side seam but the only difference from the top is that we
actually have different color blocks along the bottom so wherever you have
your first color you’re going to go in with a single crochet seaming up the
sides with that first color same thing with the second color and then with the
body color so I’m gonna be starting off with my white my gray and then with my
variegated color yarn so we’re just going to stick with each other to show
you guys where we’re going to be switching out so to start off doing our seam we’re
going to be inserting our hook into this corner loop that we have into the front
panel and also into the corner loop that we have into the back panel once we have
that we’re going to take our same colored yarn insert that onto our hook
pull that from here we’re going to pull through both loops on our hook and then
we’re going to chain up one and from here we’re going to seam up the sides
just the same way that we did the shoulder we’re going to be single
crocheting making sure that we’re going in through the front panel and the back
panel at the same time and we’re going to keep doing this until we get to our
next color so I’ve just done my last single crochet
for this first color what we’re gonna do is do a chain up of one and cut and next
we’re gonna be switching out for our next color we’re just going to make a
slipknot and we’re going to be inserting our hook into the first loop that we
have into the front panel and also into the back panel and to start this off
since we are at our second section we did start off with some herringbone
stitches so we’re going to be going in with two single crochets into each of
those side doubles or side half doubles that we made for ourselves and then if
we meet a single crochet then we’re going to be putting just one single
crochet into there as well so let’s just get on with this portion as well and now that we’re at our last loop for
our second color or my gray we’re going to switch out just one more time so
we’re going to do a chain up of one and then cut and let’s grab our last color
and then I’ll let you guys go from there just going to be switching out our
colors one more time so we’re going to grab our body color we’re going to
insert our hook into that first loop making sure we’re going in through the
front and the back panel at the same time insert our yarn onto our hook pull
through from there we’re going to do a chain up of one and then just go in from
there and then keep doing this all the way up until you guys reach your stitch
marker once when you reach your stitch marker do a chain up of one and cut and
then do the same thing that you guys did here on the other side so we’re back and
we have just seemed up these shoulders and the sides and I have gone in with
just a little bit of my sleeve on this side so I’m just going to do this other
side with you guys and it’s going to be fairly simple we’re first gonna be going
into our armhole that we made for ourselves with a row of single crochet
but remembering that it does need to be in multiples of four because of our
diamond stitch that we will be doing at the end of our sleeve so when you guys
go in just make sure to either add or subtract a couple so that it can even
out the way that we need it to but just to show you guys where we’re getting
started I will insert my hook into one of the loops that’s closest to this side
seam that we have right here and from here we’re going to grab our same body
color yarn make a slipknot insert that onto my hook and pull through once when
we have that we’re gonna do a chain up of one and then we’re gonna have a bunch
of side double crochets inside single crochets and we’re just gonna be going
in I’m not gonna tell you guys to put two into each side double because it may
vary depending on what you guys need but go ahead and just go all the way around
making sure that you guys have multiples of four once you guys reach the end
we’re going to connect into this first loop that we just made for ourselves
with a slip stitch but don’t cut and tie because we’re just gonna go back in with
our modified such stitch for our sleeve so I just made it all the way around
with our row of single crochet making sure we had loops that are in multiples
of four and then once when we have that we’re gonna be going in with our
modified sedge stitch which is exactly the same that we did the body so what
we’re gonna do is just to start this off we’re going to do a chain up of one into
that first loop we’re gonna put one single crochet and then a double once
when you have that skip one loop into the third one single crochet crochet one
single crochet and then a double into that third loop and we’re gonna keep
doing that all the way down once when we make it down to our last loop or making
sure that we have the right amount of loops on top making sure that there’s
multiples of four we actually aren’t going to connect into the side we’re
just gonna keep going back and forth like this until we have a sleeve length
that we want because we are gonna make this three-quarter length sleeves but we
are also going to be adding this chunk at the bottom as well so make sure you
keep that in mind and we’re also gonna be adding a cuff so basically this
entire chunk at the bottom so I’m just gonna be going back and forth with my
modified such stitches until I have a total of about 7 inches or 18
centimeters and that’s roughly 20 rows so I’m gonna do that meet you guys back
so that we can seam up this edge stitch section that we just did and then we’ll
go in at the end with this same pattern that we did down here so the two
herringbone diamond to herringbone and then a cuff and then we can get started
on the other sleeve and then the pockets from there so we just got finished up
with our first row of our modified Center stitch and we’re not gonna do
anything different I just wanted to remind you guys that we aren’t going to
be connecting and then going into the rounds all we’re gonna do is do a chain
up of one we’re gonna flip our work and then do more modified side stitches
going this way so we’re going to have an opening along the bottom we’re just
gonna do the first set of stitch together so into the second loop that we
have so we’re going to skip this first loop right here into that second loop
one single one double skip one loop one single one double into the next and keep
going back and forth just like this so you guys get the desired length that
you guys need so I’ve just made our way all the way down with our sleeve and
this goes almost to our elbow but we need a decent amount so that we can go
in with our detail right after this but once we get here we are going to seam up
what we have right here at the bottom and that’s going to be pretty simple all
we’re gonna do is insert our hook into our working yarn since we didn’t cut it
yet insert it into the corner that we have
on the other side of our sleeve we’re gonna yarn over and pull through and
then once we have this we’re going to put in single crochets into each of
these loops going all the way down once we make it to the end we are going to be
slip stitching into the side seam just to make sure that we have eliminated all
possible gaps but let’s just do the first set of single crochets together
this first set we’re going to be going into this side double crochet row so
we’re going to be inserting our hook into the first side double crochet next
to our hook and also into the next side double crochet that we have on the back
side and we’re going to single crochet and then we’re just going to do this all
the way down until we don’t have any more loops left to go into and then I’ll
meet you guys back so that we can slip stitch it into the seam together now
that we’ve gone all the way down with our row of single crochet we don’t have
any more loops left to go into into our sleeve what we’re gonna do is insert our
hook into the first loop that we have right here for our side seam and from
here we’re going to just yarn over pull through everything with a slip stitch
from here yarn over pull through once we have that go ahead and cut your work so
we’ve just finished up seaming up our sleeve and we are about to go in with
the bottom detail that we have for our sleeve just like how I already have over
here and this detail is actually going to be exactly the same as we have for
the body portions both the front and the back panel so we’re just going to very
vaguely go through it together and then we’ll get started on the cuff pocket and
then we’ll be all done but once when we are
all done seaming up our sleeve the first thing that we’re going to want to do is
just go in with our herringbone stitches so we’ll do the first one together just
as a really quick refresher we’re going to be inserting our hook into any one of
these loops inserting our detail color onto our hook pull through from here
we’re gonna do a chain up of two and then we’re gonna go in with our
herringbone which is yarn over insert into that next loop yarn over pull
through we’re gonna pull that first loop underneath that second loop we should
have two loops on the hook from there we’re gonna yarn over pull through one
and we’re almost done yarn over pull through two and that is our first
herringbone and we’re gonna keep doing that all the way around once when you
reach the end we will be slip stitching into the second chain that we just made
for ourselves and then we’re gonna do a chain up of two and then we’re actually
gonna be flipping our work and then working in the opposite direction that
we just came from so I’ll meet you guys back once when we are done with this row
so that we can start off that row together now that we’ve made our way all
the way around with our first row of herringbone stitches we have slip
stitched into that second chain that we have and once we get here we’re going to
do a chain above two and then instead of working in the same direction that we
were already going you’re going to be flipping our work and then working in
the direction that we just came from so that we can keep up with this
herringbone stitch pattern and then also with the detail pattern that we have to
make sure that the diamonds actually face outward as well so now that we have
this go ahead and just do a row of herringbone stitches going all the way
around and then I’ll meet you guys back we’ve just finished up going in with our
two herringbone stitch rows and we have already connected with a slip stitch the
next one we’re going to do is a regular single crochet row because we will be
starting up with our diamond stitches so all it is is to a chain up of one we are
still going to be flipping our work so that we don’t get confused and then
we’re gonna go in with a row of single crochet putting one single crochet into
every loop going all the way back around once we meet this first loop that we
made for ourselves we’re going to slip stitch into that loop do a chain up of
three flip our work and then work back the opposite way that we just came from
with a row of double crochets once we make it to the end of there we are going
to get started on the Diamond stitches together so a row of single once
make it to the end chain up one flip your work and then a row of double then
I’ll meet you guys back we’re back and we just went in with a row of single
crochet flipped our work and then our row of double crochet and now we’re
ready to go in with our row of diamonds and this is exactly the same way that we
did the front so we’re just going to get this started together
what we’re gonna do from here is to a chain up of one we’re going to prepare
for a treble crochet and then from here we’re going to follow this chain up of
one line all the way down until our single crochet row that we just did in
the previous clip and then we’re going to count one two wait here
one two single crochets and then we’re going to insert our hook behind that
post and then we’re going to do a front post treble crochet once when we have
that we’re going to be skipping one loop that we have in the previous row and
then single crochet into the next three loops so there’s one two and three and
then from here we’re gonna do another front post treble crochet but this is
going to be two front post treble crochets together so let’s get that
started we’re going to prepare for our trouble insert our hook into that same
single crochet post that we just went into for that first one that we went
into just like that we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull through
two yarn over pull through two we should have two loops on our hook left from
here we’re gonna yarn over twice again and count out four loops here’s one two
three four single crochets into that fourth single crochet post we’re going
to insert our hook behind that four single crochet post and go in with a
treble crochet so we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two
yarn over pull through two once when we have those three loops on our hook we’re
going to yarn over pull through all three and then once we have that we’re
going to skip the next loop that we have into the previous row and then into the
loop right after that we’re gonna go in with three single crochets and then
we’re going to do the same thing that we just did here going all the way around
once we made it all the way around I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do the
rest of this cuff we’ve made it all the way around with the bottom half of our
diamond stitch rows the next row we’re going to be going into is just a row of
double crochet so we’re going to do our chain up of
three we will still be flipping our work and then just put one double crochet
into every loop going all the way around our row of double crochet is all
finished up and now what we’re going to do from here is close off the tops of
our diamond stitches so we’re going to do our chain above one we are still
flipping our work and then we’re going to close off this diamond stitch
together so we’re going to single crochet into those first two loops that
we have once we have that we’re going to do another set of treble crochet 2
together so we’re going to prepare for trouble insert our hook behind the front
post trouble that we did in one of the previous rows we’re gonna yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two we should have two
loops on our hook from here we’re gonna yarn over twice again insert it behind
this next front post trouble that we have here and over pull through yarn
over pull through two yarn over pull through two we should have three loops
on our hook once we have that we’re gonna yarn over pull through all three
and then from here we’re gonna skip the next available loop that we have in the
previous row and then put three single crochets into the next three loops we’re
going to keep doing this all the way around once when we make it to the end
we are going to be doing a chain up of two we’re still gonna flip our work and
then do two rows of herringbone stitches after that I know that you guys already
know how to do it so we’re not gonna do it together but once when we have this
entire sequence done we’ll meet each other back so that we can finish up the
cuff together so we’re back and we just finished up doing the bottom detail of
our sleeve and now we can start going in with our cuff and the first row that
we’re going to be doing is a row of single crochet but we will be decreasing
because we want this to cinch in for the ribbing that we’re gonna have so the way
that I’m going to be cinching in is I’m going to start off by inserting my hook
into any one of the loops we’re gonna pull through chain up one to secure and
then from here I’m gonna be putting one single crochet into the next seven loops
so there’s one two three four five six and then the last one
right here is seven once when we get here we’re going to be doing a decrease
of two into the eighth and into the ninth loop so into this one we’re gonna
insert our hook yarn over pull through insert our hook into the next loop yarn
over pull through from here we’re gonna yarn over pull through all three loops
and then that is how we’re going to start off doing our decreases we’re just
going to do this set one more time so into the next seven loops put one single
crochet into each so I have two that’s three four five six and then seven then
into the eighth and the ninth loop we’re gonna insert our hook yarn over pull
through into the next loop yarn over pull through we showed up through loops
on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all three loops and we’re gonna
continue doing this pattern all the way down so seven single crochet into the
next loops and then into the eighth and ninth go ahead and do your decrease of
two and once you guys make it down to the end slip stitch into that first
chain that we made for ourselves and then I’ll meet you guys back we’ve made
it down to the end of our first row of single crochets where we decreased into
every eighth loop and now we’re going to go in with double crochets so that we
can start off with our ribbing but this first row of double crochet we’re going
to do another row of decreases so how we’re gonna do that is start off by
doing a chain up of three that counts as a double we’re gonna prepare for a
double crochet insert our hook into that first loop that we have with a regular
double crochet then right after that we’re going to be going in with a
decrease of two so how we do that we’re going to prepare for a double crochet
insert our hook into that next loop yarn over pull through we should have three
loops on our hook from there we’re gonna insert our hook into the next loop yarn
over pull through we should have four loops from here we’re going to yarn over
pull through three and then from here we should have two loops yarn over pull
through two and that is our decrease and we’re going to be doing a decrease in to
every other loop that we have so let’s do this again into this next loop we’re
just going to be putting one regular double crochet and then into this one
we’re going to be doing our decrease just like that let’s do the next one
together as well we’re just going to put one double crochet into the next one and
then we’re going to decrease into the loops right after that once we make it
to the end we’re going to connect into that third chain with a slip stitch and
then we can start going in with our front and back post double crochets so
our first row of decreased double crochets is all finished up and now
we’re going to be going in with our front and back post double crochets and
this is actually going to be exactly the same way that we went in with our side
panel that we have connection to our front panel so what we’re gonna do from
here is start off by doing a chain up of three that counts as a double crochet
from here we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and we’re gonna start off
by doing a front post double so into this next post that we have we’re gonna
be inserting our hook behind that post that we have this is a front post we’re
gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through
two that is our first post all finished up we’re gonna be down now we’re going
to be doing the back post so we’re gonna prepare for a double insert our hook
behind our work it’s going to go over this next post that we have and from
here we’re gonna yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn over
pull through two and then from here we’re just going to alternate between
front and back post double crochets going all the way around and then we’re
actually just going to keep going until we have the height that we want for our
cuff I’m gonna keep going until I have a total of two inches or 5 centimeters and
Counting the single crochet row and the regular double crochet row that is a
total of seven rows so go ahead and get that done and then I’ll meet you guys
back we are all done up with our sleeve
detail and also our cuff and at this point you guys can go ahead and get
yours done as well but mine is obviously all finished up so we are now going to
start working on our pocket so let me just flip this over really quick I
already have one of my pockets all finished up so we’re going to be doing
the next one together how we’re going to start this off is start off by counting
however many available loops that we have in our slip that we have and
remember in the beginning I said that I was going to leave myself 12 loops so
we’re gonna start off by making a chain with our body color that is the same
amount of loops that we have in our slit and mine is 12 once when we have our
chain we’re going to block off that last chain do a chain up of 3 that counts as
a double crochet from here we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet then insert
our hook into that next loop that we have that we blocked off with our
fingers or the fourth loop from our hook once we have that we’re going to do a
double crochet and from here we’re just going to be putting one double crochet
into every loop that we have going back down our chain once we make it to the
end we’re gonna do a chain up of three flip our work and then do more double
crochets going back down that way we’re gonna keep going back and forth just
like that until we end up having a length that we’re comfortable with for
the pocket also making sure that the length since it will loop underneath
isn’t too long so that we can see it underneath our cardigan but I’m just
gonna go in with about eight and a half inches or 22 centimeters and that comes
out to about 17 rows so go ahead and do as many rows as you guys need and then
I’ll meet you guys back so that we can connect it into the cardigan together so
I’ve just gone in with our pocket and we are all finished up and the next thing
that we’re going to do is connect it over to our front panel that we have so
the preparation that I did for that was just making sure that the cardigan was
facing us and then I also opened it so that we’re looking at the inside of the
cardigan for this pocket that we’re about to work in as well and once when
we have this this is going to be pretty simple we’re just going to take the
little pocket link that we made for ourselves take one of the ends and then
we’re going to insert our hook in through one of the corner loops then
also in through the top slit that we have for our pocket and then from here
we’re just going to sandwich those pieces together and then once when we
have that we’re going to be going in with our same body color yarn inserting
that onto our hook we’re going to pull through and from here we’re just going
to go across with a single crochet seam so all that is is we’re going to do a
chain up of one we’re going to insert our hook into that next available loop
that we have in the front panel and then also into the next available loop that
we have in the back panel and then single crochet and then we’re going to
keep doing this all the way across once when you get to the end go ahead and cut
and tie and then we can attach the bottom and then the sides the top
portion of our pocket is now all connected if you flip it over you guys
can see it’s nice and clean along this side because the seam is on the back
well once when we have this we’re actually going to take the pocket link
that we have and then fold it in under itself so that forms the actual pocket
so all we’re going to do is take this loose end that we have then just flip it
inwards towards the bottom portion of this slit and that’s going to be how we
connect it and then once we have that we’re actually going to be flipping our
panel back around right side out and then we can go in with our single
crochet row so as you guys can see this is the bottom portion of our slit and
this is the pocket that we just flipped inside out and from here we’re actually
going to be going into the back loops of this front portion of our panel slip sew
into the back loop we’re going to be inserting our hook into here and then
also into this corner loop in our pocket we’re gonna be inserting our hook into
there insert our yarn pull through everything from here a chain of one and
then just do the first one together into this next available loop that we have in
the front panel we’re going to be going in through the back loop and then into
the next available loop that we have into the back panel single crochet and
we’re going to keep doing this all the way across once when we’re done with
this go ahead and cut and tie and then we’ll meet each other back so that we
can seam up the sides of pockets this is what we should have for
our pocket so far the top and the bottom are all connected and now we just need
to go in with our sides and they’re going to be exactly the same for both so
I’m just going to show you guys how to do one of them but the first thing we’re
going to want to make sure is to make sure that our pocket is laying the
correct way so we’re going to want to make sure that our pocket is laying down
towards our bottom border because that’s going to be the way that it naturally
lays and then once when we do this we are going to insert our hook into the
loop that we have right in between this first row of double crochet and the
second row of double crochet we’re not going to be doing anything into this
first one because this layer is higher than the next if we sandwich the first
two side double crochet rows then it’s going to be a little bit bulgy so in
order to eliminate that we are going to be inserting our hook into this loop
that we have in between these two rows once when we have that we’re actually
going to be inserting your hook into any one of the loops that we have along the
side that’s in the body portion as well so that we don’t have a gap on the
corner and then from here you can also insert our hook into this first side
double crochet row along the bottom portion of our pocket and we’re going to
insert our yarn onto our hook and we’re going to pull through everything that’s
on our hook once when we have that we’re going to do a chain up of one and then
from here this is all just a bunch of side double crochets so we’re going to
put two single crochet into each of those side double crochets and then once
when we have that we are going to chain up one and cut once when we get to the
end of this why do I keep doing that and then we’re going to do the same thing
along the other side and then once we have this pocket finished up we’re going
to do the same thing for the other side of the pocket as well we’ve just gone in with our pockets and
everything is looking great the last thing that we have to do is just weave
in all of our ends if you fan it to the end of this video give yourself a pat on
