Three-Quar­ter–Length Sleeve:

Crochet World - - NEWS -

First, you need to de­ter­mine the re­quired width of the sleeve. Dou­ble the length of arm­hole on the front piece; for ex­am­ple, 8 inches for size small for a width of 16 inches to fit. Then, mul­ti­ply your width by your gauge (31/2 sts = 1 inch, for ex­am­ple, so 31/2 sts x 16 inches), and the re­sult (56) is the num­ber of sts re­quired. To work your sleeves in dou­ble cro­chet, add 2 chains for a to­tal of 58 be­gin­ning chains. The first dc is worked in the 4th ch from the hook, so the first 3 chs count as your first dc. Sim­ply work even to length and fas­ten off. Seam sleeves and sew to arm­hole open­ings. Edge with 1 round of sc for a ki­mono-style
