First we’ll make the back panel.
This pattern has an odd number of stitches.
Make 99 chains (Multiples 2 plus 1)
Row 1: skip 3 chains, DC in the next 96 chains, Total 97 stitches (Multiples 2 + 1). Turn your work.
Row 2: 1 CH, 97 SC. Turn your work.
Row 3: 3 CH, 96 DC. Total 97 st. Turn your work.
Rows 4 – 8: Alternate between DC and SC.
Row 9: 3 CH, DC in the next stitch, *CH, skip stitch, DC *repeat, DC in the last stitch. Turn your work.
Row 10: 3 CH, DC in the next stitch, *CH, DC over DC *repeat, DC in the last stitch. Turn your work.
Rows 11 – 54: repeat Row 10
Now we’re doing the front panel, one side at a time.
Put the stitch marker in the middle of the back panel.
Continue to do lace pattern next 46 rows.
Row 1: 3 CH, DC, *CH, DC over DC *repeat to the stitch marker. Turn your work.
Row 2: 4 CH, *CH, DC over DC *repeat, DC in the last stitch. Turn your work.
Rows 3 – 46: repeat Rows 1 – 2
Rows 47 – 54: Alternate between SC and DC.
Row 47: 1 CH, 48 SC
Row 48: 3 CH, 47 DC, Total 48 st.
Rows 49 – 54: Repeat rows 47 and 48
2 front panels will be the same.
Fold your work in half matching the top to the bottom. Mark 25th row (lace pattern) on the front and back side. for armhole
Join the front and the back side with a sewing needle.
Now we work sleeves. Use a lace pattern.
Work in a circle.
It’s up to you to determine how many rows you want to make for the sleeve. I made 40 rows.
Rnd 1: Attach the yarn under arm and make 4 chains. Repeat double crochet plus chain to the end round. At the end round, make one slip stitch in the third chain.
Rnd 2: 3 CH, *DC over DC, CH *repeat to the end round. Work one decrease in the end round (don’t work last chain).
At the end round, make one slip stitch in the fourth chain. This way we reduced the number of loops in this round.
Rnd 3: 4 CH, *DC over DC, CH *repeat to the end round. At the end round, make one slip stitch in the third chain.
Rnd 4 – 11: Alternate between second and third rounds.
In every second round, I reduced number of stitches.
Rnd 12 – 32: crochet without decreasing number of loops.
Rnd 12 – 32: crochet like Round 3
Rnd 33 – 40: Alternate between SC and DC.
It’s finished 40 rounds. The sleeve is finished.
Make the other sleeve in the same way.
Now I’m going to make edges. Two rows.
One row of single crochet and one row of double crochet.
