PAT­TERN NOTES

Gar­ment is worked from the top down by work­ing front and back sep­a­rately in two pieces down to the be­gin­ning of the body part. The body is worked in the round join­ing front piece to back piece as you work. Length can be ad­justed by elim­i­nat­ing or adding rows to Body sec­tion. Sleeves can be sewn shut on top if de­sired; add more but­tons to sleeve open­ing if de­sired. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of rows counts as first tre­ble cro­chet un­less other­wise stated. Join with slip stitch where in­di­cated un­less other­wise stated.
