Pattern: 1st row (= RS): Crochet 1 dc in each stitch, finish row with 1 ch to turn with.
2nd row: Crochet 1 sc in each stitch, finish row with 3 ch to turn with.
Repeat 1st and 2nd rows.

Bind off tip (applies to armhole and neck):
Bind off at beginning of row as follows: Crochet sl st over number of sts to be bound off.
Bind off at end of row as follows: Crochet until number of sts left = number of sts to be bound off, turn piece.


BACK PIECE
Crochet 93-103-118-133 ch (includes 1 ch to turn with).
Work 1st row as follows: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 sc in each of next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* until end of row = 74-82-94-106 sc. Continue with Pattern – see explanation above, until complete measurement.
When piece measures 5-5-6-6 cm [2”-2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”] dec by skipping over second sts from edge on each side on every 3rd row 3 times in total = 68-76-88-100 sts
(i.e in the start of row crochet into first stitch and skip second stitch. At end of row skip 2nd last stitch and crochet into last stitch).
When piece measures 15-16-17-18 cm [6”-6 ¼”-6 ¾”-7”] inc 1 st on each side by crocheting 2 sts in second sts from edge on each side on every other row 8-8-7-6 times on total = 84-92-102-112 sts.
When piece measures 32-33-34-35 cm [12½”-13”-13 3/8”-13 ¾”] bind off for armholes on each side on each row – see bind off tip: 3 sts 1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 1-2-2-4 times and 1 st 2-3-3-3 times = 70-72-76-78 sts.
When piece measures 47-49-51-53 cm [18½”-19 ¼”-20”-21”] continue crocheting over 18-19-20-21 sts on one side for shoulder. Continuing bind off at neckline on every row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 14-15-16-17 sts left on shoulder.
