INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL ABBREVIATIONS
bldtr (beginning linked double treble): Ch 4, sk first ch, [insert hook in next ch, yo, pull lp through] 3 times, insert hook in same sc of ch-4, yo, pull lp through (5 lps on hook), [yo, pull through 2 lps] 4 times.
1dtr (linked double treble): Working into the side lps of previous dtr, sk first vertical bar, [insert hook in next vertical bar, yo, pull lp through] 3 times, insert hook in next sc of row, yo, pull lp through (5 lps on hook), [yo, pull through 2 lps] 4 times.

NOTES
The garment is made in one piece, starting at the neckline and working down. The garment is divided for body and sleeves. Body continues down, then stitches are picked up at the sleeve and worked down. Minimal seaming, only to close up the sleeves.
When it is required to mark stitches for increasing, use small pieces of contrasting yarn or stitch markers.
When instructions indicate to sc evenly, work sc evenly across the side edges. Since a sc is wider than it is high, this will mean skipping side edges as necessary to maintain the correct number of stitches without excessive buckling or ruffling.
