Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into the 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 🙂

Special stitch used:

2×2 fpdtr left cross: (worked over 4 sts)

skip the next 2 sts, fpdtr around each of next 2 sts 2 rows below, working in front of the fpdtr just made, fpdtr around each of 2 skipped sts 2 rows below.

2-1-2 fpdtr left cross: (worked over 5 sts)

skip next 3 sts, fpdtr around each of next 2 sts 2 rows below, working behind fpdtr just made, sc in 3rd skipped st, working in front of fpdtr just made, fpdtr around each of first 2 skipped sts 2 rows below.

This crochet Eternal cable long top pattern fits size L (chest size: 36 to 38 inches)

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 5 rows = approximately 2 inches (with materials indicated)
