Mag. 179 # 02 Sleeveless sweater with open back
This sweater is made from Sonora yarn (50% cotton - 50% acrylic). Vertical crochet chains give this stripy patterned knit its chequered effect. The deep back opening is fastened at the neck with a crocheted tie. This pattern is aimed at knitters who have also mastered the basics of crochet and is knitted in 1x1 rib and stocking stitch on 3.5 mm and 4 mm needles. The vertical lines forming the squares are added using a 4 mm crochet hook. Size 8 years requires 5 balls of yarn. The sweater is machine-washable.
