Crochet Turtleneck Botanical Sweater | Tutorial DIY


so starting with the leaves we are going
to grab our category four yarn make a slipknot and then we’re going to grab
our five millimeter hook and we’re going to chain nine once when we have her chain 9 we’re
going to grab a marker and we’re going to put that right in where the chain 9
is because we’re going to chain another 8 on top of it after we have our chain 8
we’re going to chain 1 extra and then go ahead and insert your hook into the
second loop from the hook with a single crochet and then we’re going to single
crochet down until we put our marker so we’re going to single crochet 8 times 1
so we single crochet down our chain of eight we’re going to chain up one flip
your work and then we’re going to do one single crochet and then two double one
two and then we’re going to do two triple and then we’re going to do two
double and then on the very last loop that we have we’re going to do five
single crochet and from here we’re going to do the same exact thing that we did
on the other side so we’re going to start off with two double crochet two triple – double and then a single to finish it off so we
have our three leaves we’re going to work on the end leaf now it’s gonna be
another chain five go ahead and insert your marker and then we’re going to do this very
last leaf the same way that we’ve been doing it so chain another eight and go
through that sequence so this is the end piece and now we’re going to be working
our way back down but before we do that we do have these little chunks of the
leaf on the sides that I don’t like how this one comes out more blunt than this
side does so we’re just going to blend that in as we go back down so how we’re
going to do that is insert our hook into this loop right here we’re going to do
that and then also insert it into the first chain that we have as well so
combine the two and now we’re just going to connect it with a single crochet just
like that and that rounds off the side just a little bit more and from here
we’re going to single crochet our way down and then once when we get here
we’re going to do one more single crochet so that we get to the middle of
the leaf so that they all start on the same side and from here we’re going to
the same thing so chain out eight and then go ahead and go through the leaf
sequence so now we’re here we haven’t done the
very last single crochet on our leaf yet so what we’re going to do we’re going to
combine the blunt end of this leaf and the very last single crochet so we’re
going to do the same thing that we did before go ahead and insert your hook
into the blunt end and then since we don’t have a single crochet to do on
this side we’re just going to yarn over pull through both like a slip stitch
just like that and then from here we’re going to go
into the blunt end on the other leaf so this is where we’re at right now we’re
going to insert our hook into the blunt end right here and into the first chain
so we’re going to take our hook go into this go into this end and also go into
the first chain that we have right here there are going to single crochet just
like that and now both of the leaves are rounded out and then we’re going to
single crochet back down and do the same thing for the last two leaves once when
you finish your very last leaf go ahead and just single crochet down the
original chain nine that we did so starting off the sweater we’re gonna
grab our category three yarn make a slipknot
then we’re gonna grab our four millimeter hook then we’re gonna make a
chain that’s long enough to fit around our body and mine is gonna be more of a
batwing so I’m gonna make my chain roughly 20 and a half inches one so we
have our chain we’re gonna block off the last team that we did with our thumb
chain up three prepare for a double crochet go ahead and double crochet into
that loop that we blocked off or the fourth loop from the hook and we’re
going to be double crocheting all the way down once we get all the way down
chain up three and double crochet again and this is going to be a solid block of
double crochet and mine is going to equal to the amount of twelve inches so
I just finished doing my solid block of the sweater this is going to be the
bottom half now we’re going to work on the top half the sweater and it’s still
going to be all double crochets but it’s going to start to taper in a little bit
so what we’re gonna do from here is that we’re going to chain up three like we
always do but on the ends we’re going to decrease decrease ones here and once
here so how we do that is yarn over insert our hook into the first loop yarn
over pull through and then we’re gonna insert our hook into the next loop yarn
over pull through now we’re going to pull through three of the loops that’s
on the hook and then yarn over pull through the last two and that is a
decrease and then we’re going to double crochet all the way down until you get
to the third to the last loop on this end once when you get to the end we’re
going to decrease again so go ahead and yarn over insert your hook into the
first loop yarn over pull through go into the second loop yarn over pull
through we’re going to yarn over pull through 3 and yarn over pull through the
last two and then just one double crochet after that and from here
chain up three and then we’re going to be decreasing in every other row so we
just decreased in the last one so we’re not gonna be decreasing in this one so
go ahead and put one double crochet into every loop that we have next row go
ahead and chain up three decrease on both ends and keep going that way until
we have the link that we want for our sweater so we just finished doing our
decrease up to the neck line and my sweater in total from one end to the
next is 21 inches and from here you’re going to make a second I already made my
second but from here we’re going to connect the sides so from these corners
all the way down but we’re going to start at the bottom go all the way up
here and then we’re going to do a row of single crochet but I’ll show you how to
do that once when we get there so in order to connect them it doesn’t matter
which side we’re going to grab one of these corners insert our hook into the
corner and into the next corner from here we’re going to make a slipknot
we’re gonna attach it on to the hook go ahead and pull it through chain up one
and from here go ahead and put two single crochets into each side double
crochet that we have making sure that we’re going through both of these panels
that we have once we single crochet it all the way down now we’re going to
separate it we’re not going to be sandwich them anymore we’re gonna assume
crochet going down one side and then from here we’re gonna go all the way
down until you get to this point once we made it to the end then we’re going to
grab the other end we’re going to insert our hook into this corner and then we’re
going to attach it with a slip knot and from here we’re going to do a row of
single crochet down the other side once we crocheted all the way down on the
other side we’re going to find the first loop that we made over here and then
insert our hook with a slip stitch then we’re gonna do one more row so go ahead
and chain up one and put one single crochet into every loop that we have
coming all the way around and then slip stitch it together so I just did two
rows of single crochet in the armholes and then the only thing that we have to
do left on this side is inserting our hook into the top row where our neck is
gonna be make a slipknot insert our yarn and then we’re going to pull through
both loops to make sure that they’re together and then we’re just going to
single crochet in words for about an inch and a half cut in tie and we’re
going to do this entire thing on the other side as well
once we’re done sewing everything together we’re going to start working on
the sleeves so we’re gonna grab our same yarn make a slipknot grab our hook and
then we’re going to make a chain for me it’s gonna come out to 17 inches but
yours could be shorter or longer depending on how long you want your
sleeves to be once when you have your chain go ahead and block off the last
chain chain up three prepare for a double crochet and go ahead and double
crochet into that loop that we blocked off or the fourth loop from the hook
and then go ahead and double crochet once into every loop once when we double
crochet down our chain go ahead and chain up three flip your work prepare
for a double crochet and double crochet one since every loop that we have and at
the end it’s going to be an increase and I’ll show you how to do that once when
we get there once we got to the end for our second row we’re going to increase
like I said so we’re going to yarn over do one double crochet and then yarn over
again to another double crochet into the same loop and then do the last double
crochet and that is our increase we’re going to chain up one flip your work
prepare for a double crochet and then put one double crochet into every loop
that we have and then we’re going to keep increasing just on one end so one
end is going to be blunt the other end is going to come up to a slant and we’re
going to measure it out making sure that it is the same amount from this to this
and for me that’s about nine and a half inches and this is one side of our
sleeve one so we have our nine and a half inches i chained up one and came
back down once when it’s going to start curving we’re just going to do one row
of double crochet no increase no decrease no nothing once we’ve done our
row of double crochet with no increases what we’re going to do next is start to
decrease so we’re going to chain up one flip your work and then on the same side
that has all of our increases we’re going to start decreasing so go ahead
and yarn over insert our hook into the first loop here and over pull through
insert it into the second loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through
three and yarn over pull through one and from here we’re going to double crochet
once into every loop once when we get to the end chain up one come back and when
you come back decrease again only on this side and then once when we’re done
we’re gonna have the same amount on both sides someone saw we’re done making our sleeve
we’re going to go to the blunt end that we have then we’re going to put two
single crochet into each of these side double crochet that we have and then
we’re going to end it right here once we’re done doing one row of single
crochet on the blunt end we’re going to do one row of single crochet on the
other end as well so go ahead and grab your hook insert it into a corner make a
slipknot slip it onto your hook chain up one and then go ahead and put two single
crochet in the sides of each double crochet that we have now that we’ve seen
we’ll crocheted once down the side of the sleeve now we’re going to attach it
to the body portion and from here we’re just going to lay it flat and then we’re
going to open up the sleeve then we’re going to sandwich these two pieces
together so our hook is going to go into the body portion and then it’s going to
go into the sleeve and then we’re going to pull through and from here you’re
going to keep these two pieces sandwiched together
single crocheting once in every loop going through both pieces that we have
until we get to the end once we’ve connected the sleeve to the body portion
of the sweater now we’re going to flip it just a little bit and then we’re
going to go ahead and do one single crochet going down the length of the
sleeve so we can close it now that we’ve single crocheted once down our sleeve
connecting it now we’re going to work on the cuff so we’re going to make a chain
that comes out to two inches once we have our two inches we’re going to block
off the last chain chain up three prepare for a double crochet and go
ahead and double crochet once into that loop that we blocked off or the fourth
loop from the hook and then from here go ahead and double crochet once into every
chain that we have once when we went down our chain with double crochet now
we have to connect it to the sleeve so we’re going to count out two loops one
two go ahead and insert your hook into the third loop yarn over pull through
with a slip stitch and from here we’re going to do two more slip stitches
here’s one and two we’re going to flip our work then we’re going to do more double
crochets on top of this row prepare for a double crochet and we’re going to go
into the back loops only and this will give us the ridging effect that we need
for our cups once when we get to the end we’re going to chain up three flip our
work there we’re going to do more double crochets once in every loop going into
the back loops only once when I get to the end count up two loops and slip
stitch and then we’re gonna keep doing this pattern all the way around once
when I finish doing this cuff all we need to do is to close it up so we’re
going to take our hook insert it through the first loop that we have and then
we’re going to sandwich them together and then go down the rest of the cuff
with single crochet making sure that your hook goes through both sides once
we’re done connecting our sleeve we’re done with one entire side so we’re going
to do this whole sequence one more time and connect it to the other side once we
have that done we’re going to now work on the bottom order so from here we’re
going to take our hook and insert it anywhere go ahead and insert it into one
of the loops take your yarn make a slipknot insert it
onto our hook then we’re going to make a chain that comes out to three inches one
so we have our three inches go ahead and block off a last chain chain up three
prepare for a double crochet and go ahead and insert your hook into that
fourth loop from the hook or the one that we blocked off and then from here
we’re just going to double crochet once into every loop that we have one so we
double crochet it all the way down our chain we’re going to skip two loops and
we’re going to go into the third one with a slip stitch so skip one two go
into the third one with a slip stitch from here we’re gonna do three more slip
stitches so here’s one once we’re done doing our slip stitches we were going to
flip our work we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet go ahead and go into the
first loop but only going into the back loops just like how we did the cuffs for
the sleeves and we’re going to keep doing this pattern all the way around so
we just got done putting in the bottom band and this is what we have this is
still flipped inside out but this is the bottom band the body and the two sleeves
and then what we’re going to do from here is work on the turtleneck portion
so from here we’re going to take our hook insert it into a loop make a
slipknot with our yarn and pull it through and chain 1 to secure and then
from here we’re gonna make a chain that’s roughly 6 inches once we have our
chain we’re gonna block off the last loop go ahead and chain up 3 prepare for
a double crochet double crochet into that loop that we blocked off or the
fourth chain from the hook and then y’all guessed it go ahead and put one
double crochet into every loop going back down now that we’ve double
crocheted back all the way down our chain we’re going to do the same pattern
that we’ve done for the bottom band and for the cuffs but just as a really quick
refresher now that we’re all the way down here we’re going to count out three
loops one two three do a slip stitch to secure it you’re going to do three more
slip stitches from here we’re going to flip our work go ahead and double
crochet once into every loop that we have making sure that it’s in the back
loops only and keep doing this pattern all the way around so once we were done
with making the turtleneck the last thing that we have to do other than
weaving in her ends is sewing in the leaves and what I’ll did was found where
the sides are of my sleeve and just laid it flat and from here I placed it and
then just went ahead and sewed it on in go ahead and use your tapestry needle or
your hook whatever you have and Miche once when we have it done and I
just got done sewing on the leaves and weaving in all of our ends and this is
our beautiful finished product thank you so much for watching if you recreate
