I created this pattern based on verbal instructions I received from a business associate with whom I attended a conference over 20 years ago. It is a perennial favorite, can be made in a variety of lengths, and easily fits most body types.
I enjoy knitting sweaters for the World Vision (formerly Guidpost) Knit for Kids charity and I also wanted to crochet a sweater but didn’t like the pattern they provided. So I designed one that mimics the knitted sweater. I think I did a pretty good job.
I designed this “lapghan” in the mid-2000s when I was a member of the Ebeneezer Crochet Guild in Washington, DC. The members decided to make lapghans for a deserving charity one year, and this is my contribution.
This easy-to-make sweater, designed by Brazilian crocheter, Elaine Tripiano, is made from two hexagons. Elaine describes how to make the sweater in four videos in YouTube (referenced in the pattern). But because they’re in Portuguese, I decided to create a pattern in English for those of you who don’t speak Portuguese to use. I made some changes to the pattern, adding a ribbed bottom edge to match the ribbed cuffs.
Thanks so much to Rhelena of Crochet ‘N Crafts for kindly testing this pattern for me!
