Instructions: 
Chain 27 
Row 1: double crochet in third chain from hook, (initial chains count as 1 dc). * chain 1, skip 1, double crochet* until end (14 dc). 
Row 2: Chain 2, turn (initial chain 2 counts as 1 dc).  *Dc in each ch 1 space, ch 1* until end (14 dc).  Last dc is worked in space between dc and chain 2 from previous row. 
Row 3-60: Repeat Row 2

Fold lengthwise and start to double crochet in each row of both pieces, to form the "sleeves". Dc on one side, dc on other side, dc on first side in the same space, dc on other side in same space. Repeat 22 times.  Continue to double crochet on one side, to leave the central section open, dc 16 times. Continue to double crochet in both pieces, to form second sleeve. Make 2 dc in every turning dc, repeat 22 times.

Insert hook on other side of central section and rejoin yarn. Start to dc. Continue to dc in round. Make 3 rounds.  Fasten off.

    1. http://a.pix.ge/t/gwba4.jpg Hello. You should measure the length of your arms and back. The length of whole piece must be the same length as your arms and back. Add rows according to this length. Then measure from beginning the length of your arms, place markers, repeat same from other side and leave open section. Hope this helps. Enjoy crochet!

  2. Hello! I love this pattern, however I'm not getting the same size garment as the one in your video. My piece is 8" wide after chaining 27 sts. and doing a few rows. I don't think this is right. I'm using #4 worsted weight yarn & a 6mm hook. How many stitches per inch do I need to get? Thoughts? Thank you! :)

    1. Hello, after chaining 27 your piece should be about 12''. The first chain 27 is the circumference of sleeve and you can adjust the size by making it longer, or shorter. Make a foundation chain in multiples of 2 + 3 (as a first dc). For example, you can chain 39 (it will be around 12''), just measure it.

  3. My garment, after making the 60 rows was half the size of yours. I'm using medium soft red heart yarn :-(

  4. I would like to know the name of the yarn you used for I have more than a few medium yarns and when chaining 27 none of them came to the length of 12" and I would love to make this for my mom
