CROCHET STEPS DESCRIPTION

 This pattern starts from bottom up, we make no decreases for armholes, it is a rectangle shape.

 We just decrease in last 2 rows in both front and back pieces in a very simple way (slip stitching to skip sts), this way we shape the shoulders.

This decrease is optional, you can crochet all rows (without decreasing for shoulder in last two rows) and it will fit also well in your shoulders.

We crochet:

1.    two pieces, one left front and one right front

2.     one piece for back

3.   After sewing shoulder seams and side seams we crochet the sleeves. To do this we join yarn at bottom armhole (you find this point measuring from bottom up the front piece. We start crocheting in rounds, joining every round with a sl st and turning back again so you are facing the right side in first round and the wrong side in the second round. We make no decreases for the sleeves so from shoulder to cuff, we keep the same width.

4::We crochet the edging along the front panel, then the neckline and along the other front panel.

2. 5: We crochet the collar

W 6: We work final edging in grey again, along the front panel, then the neckline and along the other front panel.


Special sts

mini bean st; * insert hook in st indicated, YO, draw up a loop, 2 loops on hook, YO, insert hook in same st, YO,draw up a loop, 4 loops on hook, YO and pull up through all 4 loops,chain 1 , skip 1 st * rep from * to *

*mini Bean st is worked in multiples of 2+1 ( worked in a simple foundation row) or in multiples of 2 when have already worked a foundation sc row

Fsc: Foundation single crochet=

1:make a slip knot and attach it to your hook, ch2, insert hook in 2nd chain from hook and draw up a loop, YO and draw through one loop on hook, ( this is the chain), YO, draw through 2 loops on hook( this is the single crochet), your first Fsc is complete

Chain and sc , worked

To make the next Fsc

You can see the chain loop on the bottom of the stitch, the v coming out of that which is the posts of the single crochet and the single crochet top above that.

2: Insert your hook into the chain part of the fsc you just formed, draw up a loop, YO and pull through first loop only(= the chain), Yo and pull through both loops(=single crochet made)

 Rep this way…
