Row 1 : [ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) [1 dc, 2 dc next st] = 78 dc

Row 2 : Turn (ch 3 counts as 1 dc) 1 dc next 13 sts, sk 15 sts, 1 dc next 22 sts, sk 15 sts, 1 dc next 13 sts = 48 dc. Place stitch markers onto the 1st and 15th skip stitches on the armholes.

Row 9 : Turn, Ch3, sk 2 sts, slst blo next 3 sts, Ch3, sk 2 sts, slst blo the remaining sts and bottom edges, Fasten off.

Sleeves part

Row 1 : Attach the yarn close to the right side of stitch marker and Ch3 then 1 dc in the same space, 2 dc in the next space, rep 4 times. (You should have 12 dc between stitch markers space), 2 dc every remaining stitch, slst on top of ch3 = 42 dc

Follow the same steps on sleeves pattern on the other side, Fasten off weave in ends. Sew in the buttons and use fabric glue to secure the knots.
