It is a really simple and quick project. It is worked from side to side making it very easy to adjust to the size that you need.
Size 3 cotton fashion thread
Size J crochet hook
5 V-sts = 4" (10cm)
4 rows = 4" (10cm)
These measurements are unblocked. The texture is extremely stretchy, so gauge is difficult to determine.
Chain = ch
Double crochet = dc
V-st = dc, ch 1, dc
Do not crochet too tightly. You want a loose stitch
Row 1: V-st (dc, ch 1, dc) in the 5th ch from hook. (the first 3 chs skipped will be your first dc of the row). Skip 2 chains, V-st in next ch, (skip next 2 chs, V-st in next ch) across until to reach last 2 chs. Dc in the last ch.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc). V-st into the next ch (which will be the ch from the last V-st of the previous row) repeat across until last dc. Dc in the last dc. Turn.
You should have 19 V-sts with a dc on each end. If you have more or less, don't freak out. It's not a big deal unless it is abnormally large or small.
Row 3- 32: Repeat row 2.
You can adjust the number of rows to your size
To sew under the arms, fold, creating a narrow piece
Sew each side about 2.5" to 3"
If this is confusing, just play around with it and I think you'll see what I'm referring to...it's so easy.
I did not block mine.
If you have any questions, just leave me a comment. I'll try to help.
Have a great weekend!
