Monster Face Crochet Sweater

Monster Face Crochet Sweater

You'll be the life of the Halloween party with this Monster Face Crochet Sweater. Instead of being the scary one, you'll be the festive party-goer this year. I've seen some people pin a face on their shirt before with some pins and extra fabric, but with this fun crochet sweater pattern you'll save yourself from being tacky. It may not be a real costume, but sometimes this is all you need to show your Halloween spirit.

Notes

Directions are for size Small. Changes for sizes Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large are in parentheses. Special Stitches Bpdc (back post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from back side of work to front and to back again around the post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice. Fpdc (Front post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice. sc2tog (single crochet 2 stitches together) = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. Notes 1. Sweater is made from four pieces: Back, front, and two sleeves. 2. Monster eyes and teeth are worked on front by changing colors following Monster Chart. Each square of chart represents one single crochet stitch worked in the indicated color. Read right side rows of chart from right to left and wrong side rows from left to right. 3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. 4. Use separate small balls of yarn for each section of color. Do not carry colors not in use across wrong side of work nor under stitches. 5. Mouth and irises are worked separately and sewn to face.

I think this would be a fun sweater to make and to wear, especially if it was made using a fur type yarn. It would be like wearing a monster. If you go to the Red Heart website and search for Monster Face Sweater, you will find the complete pattern, with chart and schematics.

Where can I find the chart needed for this pattern? I really would like to make this for my grandson.

nice pattern, but I could not find any chart as indicated is needed to complete the pattern, Where would I find this? Giving a lower for this reason only.
