Feeling the need to make something so I thought I would share it here...
This is a really quick write up so if you find any errors please let me know and as always if you
10ply double stranded Or Bulky
I used lion brand tweed stripes double stranded
This is about a 2T size but I will probably go up to a K hook next time just to make it a bit baggier.
The pattern is 2 dc ch1 so when I refer to" the pattern" or "double dc" that is what I am talking about.
Ch2 = dc
Dc in 4th ch from hook, *ch1 skip ch, 1dc in next 2 chains, repeat from * to end.
Ch2 turn work in same pattern starting with 1dc, ch1, dc in next 2 dc's etc. to end.
Repeat this for a total of 10 rows
Row 11-16 "front chest"
Ch2 turn work pattern til you have five sets of 2 dc's (10 dc's, 4 ch 1's)
Ch2 turn, work for 5 more rows (total 6 rows) fasten off.
Row 11-16 "back"
Rejoin yarn, skipping a ch1, dc,dc, ch1 (on row 10 just after the front chest piece) which will be the arm hole, start another row on row 10 for the back.
Work pattern for a total of 10 double dc's (20 dc's 10 ch's)
Ch2 turn, work this for another five rows (total 6 rows) fasten off.
Repeat Row 11-16 "front chest" ...to make up the other front piece making sure to skip the ch1 dc,dc, ch1 for the arm hole.
Sew shoulder seams together lining stitches up.
I used a worsted yarn to do the trim with the same hook size but next time I will probably go up a size.
You can use the bulky or a single strand of 10ply too...
Sc from bottom left corner all the way around to bottom right corner for 3 rows adding a space for button
if desired...I added mine after with 2 sc ch4 skip a sc, 2 sc, then worked sc's evenly back across.
Add 3 sc rows on both arm holes fasten off...
Weave in ends, add button :)
