XS, (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X) To Fit Circumference Around Bust and Arms: 40, (44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64)”
Cozy is designed with 2” of negative ease – this means, for example, the size medium will have a finished circumference (before ribbing) of 46”.
Sample shown in medium.
I did some polling to check the length of this cozy in the larger size, and the given length seems to be pretty standard, but if you want more coverage, simply add more repeats of the half double crochet round before you begin the decreases, and ribbing area.
Lion Brand’s Woolspun (80% Acrylic, 20% Wool; 108 yards [95 meters]/85 grams): 505 Stone Mix, 4 (4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 6) balls
Size US L11 (8mm), K10.5 (6.5mm)
9.75 hdc and 10 rows = 4”
Please see our standard abbreviations.
Fhdc – foundation half double crochet
Hdc – half double crochet
Sc3tog – single crochet three stitches together
Join to the first stitch, not the beginning chain.
The foundation chain 3, and the beginning chain 2 starting in round 24 are the only beginning chains that count as stitches.
The top of the cozy is designed to hug the shoulders, but if a straight wrap is desired, simply work round 23 as another round of half double crochet, and then continue as written.
If a longer cozy is desired, simply add more rounds of the half double crochet repeat. Keep in mind that the ribbing adds 2.13” to cozy length.
It’s recommended you try the piece on before fastening off to make sure the cozy fits the way you like.
