Worsted Weight Yarn 
Crochet hook size H (5mm)
3/8 -5/8" button for back closure

Gauge:  Working in pattern 9 sts = 2" and 6 rows = 2"
Special Stitches:
Starting Double Crochet: SDC = Pull chain to almost as high as a dc, yo and pull up a loop in the first stitch, yo and pull through one loop, yo and pull through 2 loops. Click HERE for a photo tutorial.

*The top is worked from the top down, turning after every row.
*Work all sc in row 1 in the back ridge of the loop for a more finished look at the neck edge.
*I do not chain 1 at the beginnings of the sc rows. If you would like to, you can.
*Start the dc rows with the SDC. If you would rather do a ch 3, or other method, at the beginning of rows 2, 4, and 6 you can.
*Either side can be the right side, depending on your preference. For a striped shirt, I prefer the dc rows to be right side.
