2nd row (wrong side) – h4ch, sc1, ch5, sk5, [sc inc., ch5, sk5] to last 2chs; sc2 + RC3
3rd row – h5ch, dc1, ch2, sk2, sc inc., ch2, sk2, [dc dec., ch2, sk2, sc inc., ch2, sk2] to last 2 chs; dc2 + RC2

5th row – h5ch, dc1, ch2, sk2, sc1, [ch5, sk5, sc1] to last 4chs; ch2, sk2, dc2 + RC2

Repeat the pattern starting from the 2nd row. Work about ¾ of the back part using a larger size crochet hook and lighter yarn. Then crochet remaining ¼ of the back part using a smaller size crochet hook and darker yarn.

2nd row = 2nd row (back part)
3rd row = 3rd row (back part)
4th row = 4th row (back part)
5th row – h5ch, dc1, ch2, sk2, sc1, [ch5, sk5, sc1] to last 4chs; ch2, sk2, dc2 + ch47*
*make 47 chs or multiples of 5 chs plus 7 additional chs.

Hi ... I love my products,

Hi ... I love my products, and I always hooked them with you. I just wanted to ask if you did not plan to hook this sweater? She is so very nice and I really want to hook him up. Thanks a lot for the answer

Hi Veronika,

Hi Veronika,
I work on knit slippers now. After that project, I'll crochet something similar. Happy crochet!
