Crochet a single crochet stitches all around the front panel and then around the back panel, both on the right side (in corners crochet 2 sc in one stitch). I like to crochet this round of single crochet because the edges looks better and it’s a easy way to add stability and flatten curling pieces. In addition, it’s easier to join together the two panels. Plus the neck line looks better too, but you can skip this step if you like.

To work this single crochet edge, always insert your hook from front to back under both loops of the previous crochet stitches. Crochet this edge from the right side of the piece and from right to left. If you crochet with your left hand, reverse the direction.

Sew together the front and back panel leaving enough space for the sleeves, then sew together the shoulders. After you finish sewing together the front panel and the back panel don’t cut the yarn, use it to crochet the sleeve starting the sleeve from that point.

After you finish the last row don’t cut the yarn and on the same side start to crochet a round of sc. Making a sc edge add stability and flatten curling pieces. Plus if you make this round it will be much easier to crochet the next one, witch is very important because this round give the puff look of the sleeve. For the next round you have to follow the next steps (first see the photo bellow):

  1. Sew together the sleeve,
  2. Then on the right side crochet sc in each stitch that are under the arm part;
  3. Then crochet 3 sc together all around the sleeve cap;
  4. Crochet sc in each stitch in the under arm stitches.

After you finish the sleeve don’t cut the yarn and sew it on the top.

Repeat the pattern for the second sleeve.
