Rep R.2-9 for pattern

I’ve changed the color here.

I’ve made 5 times of the pattern. You can make shorter or longer as You wish.

The second piece

Rep the same steps to create another identical piece. DO NOT CUT THE YARN FROM THE 2RD PIECE

When You got 2 pieces, we will connect both pieces together and create the last piece, which is the back part.

The back part

To connect, continue from the 2nd piece with 1dc in each st across, connect the other piece with 1dc and continue to add 1dc in each st across the other side (purple arrow)

Rep R.2-9 for the pattern at the back as long as You need.

I’ve finished my last row at the R.7

Create the arm holes

Find the shoulder part, fold Your work. From the shoulder, measure down approximately of 10” inches, sk that 10” inches and sew the rest of the piece, back and front downward to close the side body. I sk the last 8 rows to have it open.

Rep the same steps, the other side.

Neckline (optional)

I did sc in the middle of the neckline.


A pocket (optional)

I crochet 7 rows of 17dc (each row) to created the square. Then I sew it at the front to create the pocket.

And voila! You are done!

Sew in all the excess yarns and put it on 😉
