 Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook.

Horizontal cluster= ch3, dc in first ch of the ch 3 just made

 SIZES Adult XS( S, M, L XL


We crochet 2 pieces, one for the front part and half sleeves and one exactly similar for back piece and half sleeves. It is a T letter shape pattern.

Note: chain a multiple of 3, the number of dc in first row has to be a multiple of 3+4 dc

Chain 51(57,63,69,75)
Row 1: dc in 4nd   ch from hook, dc in every ch to the end,   49 (55,61,67,73 dc) , turn
Note: ch3 at the beginning of the rows counts as dc

Row 2 :ch3, dc in next st,  ch3, dc in 1st ch (of the 3 chains just made), you made an horizontal cluster, *dc3tog in next 3 sts, ch3, dc in 1st ch,*, rep from * to * to last 2 sts,  dc in next st, dc in top of ch3, turn
15 dc3tog clusters(17, 19, 21, 23)

Row 3: : ch3, 3 dc in next st,*skip the horizontal cluster, work    3dc in top st of dc3tog of prev row*, rep from * to * to the end, * to last 2 sts,  dc in next st, dc in top of ch3, turn

Row 4:ch3, dc in next st , dc in every st to the end, end with dc in top of ch3,  ,   49 (55,61,67,73 dc) , turn

Rows 5-27 rep rows 2-4,  row 27 is similar to row 3
At the end of row 27 after last dc , chain 38 chains, this will be an increase foundation chain for sleeves. Do not fasten off, you will continue crocheting. 


Row 28:dc in 4rth chain from hook, dc in next 34 chains, continue working in body now , dc in every st of the body. When you finish the row,stop , now you will create first a new foundation chain to extend to the left side and then you will continue the dc row.
 So  attach yarn with a new ball in last st of row 28 and chain 36 chains, fasten off. Continue working with the old ball of yarn , work 36 dc on this new foundation chain to the left. So you have 121 dc (127,133,139,145)
*To make it clear we had for size Small for example 49 dc in the body, we crocheted 36 dc in each side , in total fo this size we have  121 dc
Note:We continue crocheting now a much more wider piece because we have body and sleeves together in one.
Sizes XS, S, M, L  work rows  29-40  as in rows 2-4 , so you have sleeves width 7 inches (18 cm)
Size XL work rows 29-43 as in rows 2-4 so you have sleeves width 9,05 inches (23 cm )
Fasten off, weave in ends.

Put the front piece onto the back, right sides facing you and sew from the bottom side till the end of the sleeves.You may leave a small side opening as I did , so measure 5 inches (13 cm ) from bottom body up and start sewing from this point.
Then sew the shoulder and up part of sleeves, Find the middle of the upper part of sweater and mark a space 11,80 inches (30 cm) to the left and to the right equally spaced , this will be the neck opening.
Do the same in back piece.Now make a seam from your marker to bottom sleeve , do the same in the other part of sweater.

Fasten off , weave in ends.

Thank you for being the best company for me!!
