Sew The Panels:

Once you have successfully crocheted all four panels, follow the placement instructions demonstrated in the accompanying video. Initially, sew the shoulders of the front panel to their corresponding points on the back panel. Following this, seamlessly integrate the sleeve panels on both sides of the bodice panel. To conclude the assembly process, meticulously sew each side, commencing from the wrist and progressing seamlessly to the underarm, ultimately reaching down to the hip. It is imperative to maintain precision during this phase, ensuring a refined and cohesive finish on both sides. Having accomplished these steps, your crochet striped sweater now stands prepared for its final enhancement—the addition of the ribbed neck.

3- How to crochet striped sweater in a cropped length.

A cropped crochet striped sweater in white with back stripes worn over white pants.
Elegant and timeless striped sweater.

The cropped version of this sweater has the same counting as the hip length one, minus [4w,13b] pattern 1 time. For example, in case the hip length version asks for S(3b,[4w,13b] 3 times, 4w,16b),  M(3b,[4w,13b] 3 times, 4w,19b),  L(3b,[4w,13b] 3 times, 4w,20b),  XL(3b,[4w,13b] 3 times, 4w,22b). At the cropped version make sure to crochet 2 times.

So the above pattern for the cropped version will have this form: S(3b,[4w,13b] 2 times, 4w,16b),  M(3b,[4w,13b] 2 times, 4w,19b),  L(3b,[4w,13b] 2 times, 4w,20b),  XL(3b,[4w,13b] 2 times, 4w,22b).

Secondly the cropped version has wider sleeves which brings it down to how wide you like your sleeves to be. The cropped version has a quantity of 18 ribbing’s comparing to the 15 of the hip length version.For example, in case the hip length version asks for:

4th (all sizes)-31st(31st,35th,35th) Row:

Repeat row 2 for the even rows (4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34) and row 3 for the uneven rows (5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35).

At the end of the 31st(31st,35th,35th) Row cut the yarns and the sleeves of this crochet striped sweater are ready.

In the case of the cropped version the last part of the pattern will follow as below:

4th (all sizes)-37th(37th,41st,41st) Row:

Repeat row 2 for the even rows (4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40) and row 3 for the uneven rows (5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35,37,39,41).
