Crochet the jacket according to the explanations for the circle. Start to bind off for the armholes on the 12-13-14th round. Crochet 2 rounds according to the explanation for bind off for armholes, then continue to crochet according to explanation for the circle.

Crochet gauge: 3 rows in the circle using hook size 6 mm [J/10] and 2 strands Alpaca should measure 6.5 cm [2 5/8”]. After 5th round the circle should measure 20 cm [8’’] in diameter.

Crochet info: Substitute the first tr each round with 4 ch. Finish each round with a sl st at beg of round.

Measurement tip: Because of the weight of the yarn, all measurements should be made whilst the garment is hanging, otherwise the sleeves will be too long when wearing the jacket.
