Few new pictures in natural light:
And how to do it:
First make a pattern with your (desired) dimensions. It will look like this:
Mine looks like this, if you need S:
And I used these stitches, first for the main part, second for sleeves. You can use another one, if you don’t like it.
I don’t find now a decent photo, sorry for this one.
First is a multiple of 10 (+4 sts, so you can start each row with 2 dc, or first and last group of 5 dc will be reduced at 2-3 dc to fit your dimensions)
I used a 5 mm hook (H/8) and a medium weight yarn.
Gauge: 17 sts x 9 rows of pattern = 10 x10 cm (4 x 4 inches)
Chain as many as you need to fit your desired dimension, or start with foundation sc, as you wish.
Row 1: ch 3, 1dc in each next 2 sts, skip 2 sts, 5 dc in next st (shell), skip 2 sts, *1dc in each next 5 sts, skip 2 sts, 5 dc in the next st*, repeat *_* until the last 2 sts, finish row with 2 dc.
Row 2: ch 3, dc in the next st, 5 dc in 3rd st (in top of the shell formed in row 1) , skip 2 sts, *1 dc in each next 5 sts, skip 2 sts, 5 dc in top of the next shell, skip 2 sts*; repeat *_* until the end of the row.
The sleeves will look like this:
Hard to see the pattern, but you can see the shape.
Join together and choose a nice border. (Join the sleeves from the top point, it’s much easier.)
Instead of buttons I made 2 bullion st flowers with little pearls in the middle.
I hope you will find this useful:).
Have a nice weekend!
