My First Sweater with Marly Bird

Welcome to My First with Marly Bird! Each month Marly will teach you a new crocheting or knitting project. These projects are designed to make you comfortable as you transition between learning the stitches and making a project. Every design has a written pattern and a step-by-step video tutorial to follow along.

This month we’re featuring a sweater that’s great for beginners. Download the free pattern, buy the supplies for it from, then watch Marly’s video to learn how to make it!

This basic sweater is made the same in the front and the back. There’s not much shaping, so it’s great for your first sweater project. Plus, it’s made with the new Fashion Soft yarn, which drapes beautifully.
