  • Abbreviations: A comprehensive list including 2trtog (two treble together), beg (beginning), ch (chain), fptr (front post treble), etc.
  • Construction Notes: The garment is designed for a comfortable, loose fit with the option to adjust the length of the body and sleeves. Each row begins with a chain 3, which counts as the first stitch.
  • Techniques: Detailed instructions for increases (inc), decreases (dec), and front post treble (fptr) stitches to create texture and shaping.

Assembly Instructions

  • Back and Fronts: Begin with a chain foundation, followed by treble crochets and front post treble stitches for a textured border. Decreases are made for shaping.
  • Sleeves: Worked flat from a chain foundation with increases for shaping. Textured borders match the body.
  • Collar: After assembling the body and sleeves, the collar is worked in treble crochet around the neckline with a larger hook for a looser fit.

Finishing Touches

  • Assemble the pieces as directed, ensuring a neat finish. The collar adds a cozy touch to the garment, perfect for cooler weather.
