With 3.5 mm crochet hook
Foundation: Multiples of 2. In this case, ch 42 and join with a sl st to the 1st st.
ROW 1: ch 2, work in back loops of chain base, DC in each st across, sl st to 1st DC. <42>
ROW 2: ch 2, *FpDC, BpDC*21, sl st. <42>
ROWS 3-5: Repeat row 2.
Switch to 4 mm crochet hook
ROW 6: ch 2, DC in each st across, sl st. <42>
ROW 7: ch 2, turn, DC in each st across, sl st. <42> (after this row, we will turn our work in each row)
ROWS 8-9: Repeat row 7.
ROW 10: ch 2, turn, DC 41, 2DC, sl st. <43>
ROWS 11-17: Repeat row 10. <50>
*Fasten off. Make one more piece and do not fasten off. Place the other piece to the left of the working piece and join with a sl st to first st.
ROW 18: ch 2, DC 50, continue on joining piece, DC 50. <100>
ROW 19: ch 2, turn, DC in each st until end. <100>
ROWS 20-35: Repeat row 19.
*Start counting from the starting point(back side) to the left, place stitch markers into 26th and 32nd. Skip 36 stitches, place stitch markers into 37th and 43th.
***All stitches placed stitch markers must be FpDC. So, if you have different number of stitches, you can easily arrange it considering this.
ROW 36: ch 2, *BpDC, FpDC, repeat from * to 2nd st marker, DC in each st until 3rd st marker(DC 36), *FpDC, BpDC, repeat from * until end. Since we started row with a bpdc, it has to end up with a fpdc. But this time our row ends with a bpdc. In this case, use ch 2 the beginning ch from previous row, as if it’s a fpdc. This applies only for this row. No need to do it again.
ROW 37: ch 2, *BpDC, FpDC, repeat from * until 2nd st marker, DC2tog, DC 32, DC2tog, *FpDC, BpDC, repeat from * until end, sl st, ch 1, fasten off. Hide the tail.
Insert your hook into stitch right next to 4th st marker from behind.
ROW 38 : ch 2, *BpDC, FpDC*3, BpDC, DC2tog, DC 30, DC2tog, *BpDC,FpDC*3, BpDC, turn. <46>
ROW 39: ch 3 (count as 1st FpDC), *BpDC,FpDC*3, DC2tog, DC 28, *FpDC, BpDC*3, FpDC, turn. <44>
*Repeat these 2 rows 3 more times. But for the last row, make an extra one decrease in the middle. (we need an odd number) <37>
ROW 45: ch 3, *BpDC, FpDC, repeat from * until 1 st left, BpDC, turn. <37>
ROW 46: ch 3, *FpDC, BpDC, repeat from * until 1 st left, FpDC, turn.
ROW 47: Repeat row 45.Fasten off.
Now, we will work on back. There 50 sts in total. Put a stitch marker into the middle which is a fpdc. Count 2 fpdc to the left and insert your hook into the 3rd fpdc st and;
R1: ch 2, *FpDC,BpDC*3, FpDC, turn. <7>
R2: ch 3 (count as bpdc), *FpDC, BpDC*3, turn. <7>
R3: ch 3 (count as fpdc), *BpDC, FpDC*3, turn. <7>
*Repeat row 2 and 3 until it measures 24-25 cm.
Then count 5 fpdc starting from middle, insert your hook into the 6th fpdc st and follow the same way above. Sew the buttons, after you finish.
