Pattern Notes

This project is worked top down with Row 2 worked off both sides of Row 1, then the upper body of the duster is worked in turned rows with 4 shoulder increases to create raglan sleeve shaping. Size Medium – 2X also have bust increases in the front of the yoke. The yoke is then joined at the shoulder increases to create armholes. The lower body of the garment is worked in turned rows off the bottom of the yoke. Then yarn is re-joined to each armhole to work turned rounds for the sleeves with decreases for shaping.

It is very important to use 2 different colored stitch markers for the Shoulder Increases and Bust Increases.
