Notes:

  1. Tunic is worked in four steps: Skirting, bodice, sleeves, and collar. Each piece begins by working stitches around an edge of the previous piece, minimizing the amount of sewing needed.
  2. The skirting is worked first, beginning at the top of skirting and is worked down to the lower edge.
  3. The bodice is worked next and begins by working stitches into the opposite side of the skirting foundation.
  4. After the shoulders are seamed, sleeves are worked directly into the armholes.
  5. The collar is worked last, beginning by working stitches around neck edge.

Special Stitches:

  • Fsc (foundation single crochet) – This technique creates a foundation chain and a row of single crochet stitches in one =
    • First st: Ch 2, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook and draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 1 loop on hook (the “chain”), yarn over and draw through both loops on hook (the “single crochet”).
    • Remaining sts: *Insert hook in “chain” of previous stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 1 loop on hook (the “chain”), yarn over and draw through both loops on hook; repeat from * for desired number of stitches.
  • puff = Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 7 loops on hook.
  • 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.
  • sc3tog (single crochet 3 stitches together) = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
  • V-st (V-stitch) = (Tr, ch 3, tr) in indicated stitch.

Form fitting sweater is something I would make for a young slender teenager, as a gift. I would enlarge the sweater for myself.

Wow, beautiful sweater. On average, how long does it take to finish a project like this from start to finish? Does it keep your attention? If I work on a project that takes a while to complete, I tend to get bored with it and put it aside for a while or never go back to it so I need stitching that wont be so repetitive that I do that.

This is a Beautiful Sweater, I cant' wait to make a few of these in different colors. The pattern is well written and looks easy to make an a few evening of my "relax" time. I think the Queen Bee Sparkle Sweater will make a great sweater for the fall season. Looking forward to making this cute sweater. Thank you for this free pattern.
