With simple shaping, the Snow Crystal Sweater is a great introduction to crocheted cables or a simple project for anyone experienced with them. The drop shoulder fit makes it into a cozy and comfortable finished sweater.
The Snow Crystal Sweater is worked from the top down with drop shoulder shaping. The back is worked first, then the front stitches are picked up from the shoulders of the back and worked down to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up from the body and worked to the cuff. Sleeve and sides are seamed, then the neckband is worked.
