Sleeveless Crochet Sweater
"Beautiful dyed yarn was used to create this easy sweater. The stitches used are very basic and the instructions are easy to follow. This elegant piece looks great when paired with jeans or pants. Suitable for Spring and Autumn season as it is without sleeves but you can add sleeves to it to make it a winter pullover. You can wear it on its own or over a T-shirt if you prefer. Hope you like the tutorial and share it with your friends. "
