➽ Yarn Saver Tip: Before you decide to crochet any sweater made with thick yarn – please pay attention to sleeves and seams in photos. Whether the wearer hides all excessive width under her arms or garments have not flattering bumps at armholes? Many free crochet sweaters made with thick yarn, double crochet stitches (without chains in between) have T-shapes, because such sleeves do not require any shaping. T-shaped lacy kimonos made with thin thread do look fine because any excessive width drapes beautifully along the sides. All excessive thick double crochet stitches not only consume more yarn, but will be gathered under your arms (especially if you intend to wear sweaters under winter coats) because people are not built in T-shapes.
