Row 1 (see chart): ch3 (= 1st treble), 1 treble (tr) into 5th ch from hook, 1 tr into each ch on beginning chain = 104(113)122(131)140(146) tr.

Row 2: ch3 (= 1st tr), 1 tr into each tr on previous row = 104(113)122(131)140(146) tr.

Work row 3 following the chart, then work rows 4–9 a total of 7(8)8(8)9(9) times. The piece now measures approx. 44(50)50(50)56(56) cm.

Crochet trebles for the rest of the piece (keep repeating rows 8–9).

Finishing

Pin the pieces to measurements, mist on the wrong side and allow to dry.

Sew the shoulder seams, leaving an approx. 30(31)32(32)33 cm hole for the neck opening.

Place markers in between rows at the bottom of the armholes, 20(20)21(22)23(24) cm from the shoulder seams.

Armhole border:

Row 1: Join yarn with 1 dc into the bottom of the armhole, in between rows, and ch2 (= 1 tr). Work 2 tr into each row at the armhole [= 40(40)42(44)46(48) cm] and 1 tr in between rows at the bottom of the armhole.

Rows 2–3: ch3 (= 1st tr), 1 tr into each tr on previous row.

Break the yarn and work the other border in the same manner.

Sew the seams at the armholes and sides.
