GAUGE

In pat­tern: 20 sts = 4 inches; 16 rows = 4 inches Take time to check gauge.

PAT­TERN NOTES

Gar­ment is con­structed in 1 piece be­gin­ning at Left Sleeve cuff and end­ing at Right Sleeve cuff. When count­ing stitches, each chain- 1 counts as a stitch. Chain- 2 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first half dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain- 3 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first half dou­ble cro­chet and chain- 1 un­less oth­er­wise stated. When in­structed to in­crease 1 stitch at each end of row, work as fol­lows: If the pre­vi­ous row ends with 2 stitches to­gether, the in­crease on the fol­low­ing row is made by work­ing 2 stitches in the first stitch and a chain- 1 space in the 2nd stitch. If the pre­vi­ous row ends with a chain- 1 space then a stitch, the in­crease on the fol­low­ing row is made by work­ing 1 stitch and a chain- 1 space in the first stitch and a stitch in the chain- 1 space. Work in re­verse at the end of the row. Once the in­creases start, a pat­tern row 1 might look like a row 2 or a row 5 might look like a row 6. Main­tain the es­tab­lished pat­tern across by work­ing stitches into chain- 1 spa­ces and chain- 1 spa­ces over stitches. When in­structed to de­crease 1 stitch at each end of row, work as fol­lows: If the pre­vi­ous row ends with 2 stitches, the de­crease at the start of the fol­low­ing row is made by work­ing a sin­gle cro­chet de­crease ( see Stitch Guide) or half dou­ble cro­chet de­crease ( see Stitch Guide) in the first 2 stitches, then work a stitch in the next chain- 1 space. If the pre­vi­ous row ends with a chain- 1 space and a stitch, the de­crease on the fol­low­ing row is made by work­ing sin­gle cro­chet de­crease or half dou­ble cro­chet de­crease in the stitch and space, then chain- 1 and skip next stitch. Work in re­verse at the end of the row. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.
