Since I started posting photos of my “kids” in their crocheted sweaters I have been asked to post the pattern.  The problem has been that I don’t use a pattern.  I just crochet and rip out and  crochet again until I get it to work.  But after encouragement I have written down a pattern for Lincoln’s Sweater. One thing to note is this is for a boy sweater where  there is space left open under the belly at the back end to leave room for their pee-pee.  Notice on Mamie’s (girls) sweater the sweater is solid all the way to the back.  Keep in mind I am not a pattern writer.  This is very basic.  Make turns at end like you normally would when crocheting.

To join the opening and make holes for legs, join yarn to one edge evenly spaced so as to allow 10 stitches.  DC 10 stitches across  for 5 rows.  Leave long piece of yarn when finishing off so you can sew the loose end to the other opening edge.  This makes a band under the chest and makes two leg hole openings.
