Loom-a-Long part 4 Throw-on sweater

 I call this sweater "Throw-on Sweater" because it is just what it says--to throw it on.  I didn't make it with button holes or button, just throw it on to keep you warm on chilly days.  The name also relates to the scripture verse:  "Casting all your cares upon Him (the Lord); for He cares for you." 1Peter 5:7 in the King James version.  I also like the New Living Translation that says, "Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you."  This sweater, hopefully will remind us to do this!  The Lord loves you so very much!!

Now to the front!

Both sides:

Measure from your side across the front at the largest point, whether across the chest or the belly.  Add 6 inches; 2 for overlapping the fronts and 4 for the fabric relaxing as it comes down from the loom.  Measure where you want the sweater to hit on your hip the bottom of the indent at the bottom of your throat.

Measure the loom and mark as you did with the back:  3 knit, 3 purl and end with 3 knit.

Use crochet cast on and work ribbing for 9 rows then knit for the length you measured.  Then stop and wait for next directions.

If you have any questions please write me at the address located in my profile.  Happy looming and God bless!
