Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/round instead of ch3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

    I assume this is being worked from the bottom up? I don’t see an increase for the arms – is that correct? Thanks for your help.

      Both top down and bottom up are right for this pattern. As you see it made of 2 similar rectangular pieces 🙂

    I love your design and want to make this top and bought the pdf file with all sizes. But I would like to know what yarn you used. It looks so nice. And which side is the wrong side an which is the right side? Thanks.

      Hi Laura,
      I used a local yarn brand so it’s stated as shimmery cotton yarn. Don’t worry about the yarn, any soft type of cotton yarn would be fine as long as the gauge is similar. Since this pattern is worked with rows, right or wrong side is your own option, just take the ” smooth ” side as the right side 🙂
