Designed by Lily Chin

letterman and Chin diagram If you are the fastest crocheter in the world like Lily Chin, this might only take you an hour to make. However, if you are an average crocheter, it will probably take an evening or two! It's a perfect project to crochet while watching late-night TV!!!

Lily Chin also designed another version of this sweater, which she calls the 1-Day Sweater, using a 15 mm hook (P). It's definitely a more fashionable look. It looks terrific over a tank top! The pattern follows the 1-Hour Sweater.
