PAT­TERN NOTES

Tu­nisian cro­chet rows con­sist of 2 passes per row— a pick- up pass and a work- off or re­turn pass. The right side of work is al­ways fac­ing. Gar­ment is worked flat, from the bot­tom- up. Sleeves are joined to Body with dec­o­ra­tive re­verse sin­gle cro­chet, then side seams are sewn. Cowl is worked flat di­rectly onto Neck­line, then seamed up the side. When work­ing Cowl, wrong side of Body is fac­ing, so right side of the cowl folds over and is right­side out when worn. Gar­ment Front and Back steadily de­crease in Snowflake pat­tern stitch. Snowflakes are omit­ted from Neck shap­ing as they will not be seen un­der the cowl. The first loop on your hook in Tu­nisian cro­chet counts as a stitch; it will not be ref­er­enced in the in­struc­tions, but is in­cluded in stitch counts. When work­ing foun­da­tion row into ini­tial chain, work into the back bump of each chain, and do not skip the first chain. This cre­ates a smooth be­gin­ning edge. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. At the last stitch of the row, in­sert hook un­der both ver­ti­cal strands for a fin­ished look.
