Ch-loops: 6 ch-loops x 5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Treble crochet (tc): 12 tc x 4.5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Crochet tips (armhole and neck):
Bind off as follows:
At beginning of row: replace 1 tc with 1 sl st, for the number of tc you want to bind off.
At the end of the row: turn piece when the number of tc remains that you want to bind off, and crochet back.
Crochet info (for yoke):
Replace the first tc of every row with ch 4 and end every row with 1 tc in the ch 4 from previous row.
Front: Ch 65-74-80-89-98. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 8th ch from hook, * ch 1, skip over 2 ch, 1 tc in the next ch *, repeat from * - * = 20-23-25-28-31 ch-loops, turn the work.
Then crochet as follows: ch 5, 1 tc in ch-loop, * ch 1, 1 tc in the next ch-loop *, repeat from * - *. Repeat this row until the piece measures 12 cm, then inc 1 bow at each side by crocheting 1 extra ch-loop in the next to outermost loop at each side. Repeat inc when the piece measures 22 cm = 24-27-29-32-35 ch-loops.
Read the rest of Front section before crocheting:
Yoke: When the piece measures 23 cm crochet the next row as follows: ch 4, * 1 tc in ch-loop, 1 tc in ch *, repeat from * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch-loop = 48-54-58-64-70 tc. Continue with 1 tc in each tc from previous row – crochet in each tc, not between tcs. Place a marker at center front.
Armhole: When the piece measures 31-32-33-34-35 cm bind off for armhole at each side every row – see crochet tips: 3-5-7-8-10 tc 1 time, then bind off 2 tc 1 time and 1 tc 1-1-1-2-2 times.
Neckband: When the piece measures 37-39-41-41-43 cm bind off for the neck as follows: Crochet until 9-9-9-10-10 tc remain before the marker, then bind off 1 tc for the neck every row 2 times – see crochet tips.
After all armhole and neck shaping is complete 7-8-8-8-9 tc remain on each strap. Continue until the piece measures 48-50-52-54-56 cm, cut yarn. Repeat on the other side of neck.
Back: Crochet the same as the front. Bind off for armhole as on front = 36-38-38-40-42 tc. When the piece measures 44-46-48-50-52 cm place a marker at center back. Now bind off sts for the neck as follows: Crochet until 10-10-10-11-11 tc remain before the marker, then bind off 1 tc for the neck on the next row – see crochet tips. Crochet 1 more row, the piece measures approx. 48-50-52-54-56 cm, cut yarn. Repeat on the other side of neck..
