Hello everyone, I’m sooo excited about this weeks project :)! It’s one of those special times when what I picture in my mind actually works out in real life.

This Even Moss Stitch Sweater is beyond comfortable, warm, and the pockets are super practical. Better yet, it looks amazing!

It’s a little more intermediate to advanced than some of my projects, but I’m confident that with the video and pattern, any one can make it with enough time and patience.

This pattern is available for purchase in a printable, downloadable PDF format with the hi-res photo tutorial in sizes XS-XXL as well (and no ads). Find it here on my Etsy shop, or Ravelry.

Joining the pieces together

Sew the back and 2 front panel

Take the back and 2 front panel, place them with correct side facing down, we’ll sew in the wrong side. Using the tail that we left earlier, sew along the top of the shoulder area together using method of choice.

Sew the sleeves to the main panel

Lay your main panel correct side facing down. Place your sleeves correct side facing down and start sewing on the wrong side with your tail again. The shoulder seam of the main panel should be in the middle of the sleeves panel and even on both sides

Sew the sweater together

Fold your sweater in half at the shoulder seam. Cut a new strand of yarn 60-70″ long, enough to sew the side and the sleeve. Start sewing from the bottom up to the side seam until you reach the armpit and continue sewing the sleeve side seam until you reach the end of the sleeve and then weave all the ends ( Check picture below )

Sew the pocket

With your sweater still wrong side out, place your pocket backing square over the pocket with the top about half an inch above the pocket opening.

Sew all the way around the pocket backing using any method you prefer: Make sure you DON’T sew through the outside, just pick up your stitches from the wrong side. (Check out the video if it sounds confusing).

Crochet around the pocket edges

Turn your sweater right side out, we’ll crochet on the right side. Add new yarn into the corner of the pocket opening and then make a sl st into each st around, cut the yarn and weave the ends.

Crochet around the collar

With your sweater right side out. Start the collar working from the bottom right corner. Work all the way up and around the neck , back down to the left corner. We’ll turn back the other direction and keep repeating.

Row 1 : Add new yarn into the right front corner, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 sc into each st across to the left front corner. Total of 146( 146, 152, 152, 158, 158 ) sc *If you have a few more or less st it’s ok. ( Check picture below )

Row 2 : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 sc into each st across. Total of 146( 146, 152, 152, 158, 158 ) sc

Row 3 : rep row 2, cut the yarn and all the ends
