Row 1: Ch 61(61,71,71,81,81,91,91,101) sc into the first 10 st and place a stitch marker in the 10th st. Hdslst in the remaining st, incr in the last st by placing 2 hdslst in the same st.
Row 2: Ch 2 and turn, hdslst in the second st from the hook to mark as an increase for row 2.
NOTE: Work on the back loops only from here onwards. Hdslst in the remaining st till the stitch marker, sc in the last 10 st.
Repeat rows 1-2 till row 19(19,25,25,31,31,37,37,43) You should end at the top of your work.
Now connect the body to the collar with a slst. You will connect to the last stitch marker we placed which should be a space of 20(20,30,30,40,40,50,50,60) stitches. Slst into the next sc to start the next row.
You should have slst into 2 sc of the colar now.
We will do no more increases for the middle portion but rather work normal rows. Turn your work and work downwards with the hdslst, switch to sc when you reach the stitch marker.
Repeat this till you reach the next stitch marker of the collar.
From here on we will start to decrease the same number of rows we increased on the opposite side.
Instead of connecting to the collar with a slst, we will ch 1, turn the work and do a decrease od two st together. So you will hdslst 2 together.
Repeat this for the same number of rows you increased. 19(19,25,25,31,31,37,37,43)
At the end of the row, ch 1 and cut.
Repeat this for the other middle portion leaving the shoulder portions untouched.
Connect the yarn at the under arm portion of where the sleeve should be, and place sc all around the arm. Be sure to keep the same number as rows we made. so for size small you should place 48 sc.,(48,60, 60,82,82, 94,94, 106)
Place a stitch marker at the centre of the shoulder stitches to indicate the middle of your sleeve. Place the stitch marker in sc number 5(5,5,5,10,10,10,10,10)
sleeves (make 2)
For the sleeve, you want to make sure your sc ends back at the under arm section, you will slst into the first sc you made, and make a ch of 61(61,81,81,121,121,141,141,161). Using your secondary colour.
Begin with sc into 10 st, place a stitch marker and hdslst into the remaining st. In the last st, make an increase of 2 hdslst in the same st. Slst to the next sc to connect the row, slst to the next sc to start a new row.
Turn your work, in the first st, increase by placing 2 hdslst together.
Repeat these 2 rows, increasing at the top of the work for each row till you reach the stitch marker.
Place your last increase in the stitch marker, from there, decrease. Decrease by working 2 hdslst together.
We increase for half of the sleeve then decrease for the other half.
Repeat this till your sleeve is done, connect the sleeve by sewing with your needle.
Repeat this for the other side and your crochet turtleneck sweater pattern is almost done.
