Did the first Open Canyon Stitch Diagram help you? Here’s the Open Canyon Week 2 stitch diagram. I hope like the other one, this helps you to visualize the construction of your sleeves and makes crocheting a little easier. I know it always helps me to “see” the stitches and how they are laid out.
- Yarnspirations Cotton Cakes, #4 Worsted Weight, 211 yds/100 grams, 60% cotton, 40% acrylic, Colorway shown in photo: Boho Floral
- Sizing: XS(SM, MED, XL,LG, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X) Skeins Required: 4(4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8) (If you are one that will want to “make your color change happen exactly the same for both pieces of the garment, you may want to purchase an extra skein). I highly suggest ensuring you get the same dye lot number for all skeins needed for your project.
- I Hook/5.5mm
- Tapestry Needle
Gauge: 15 dc and 8 rows = 4″
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
rem – remaining
sc – single crochet
st(s) – stitch(es)
- Ch 4 is considered the first dc and ch-1 in the row
- Ch 3 is considered the first st in the row. You could try the alternative to the chain 3 for a cleaner look.
- Ch 1 is not considered the first st in the row/round
- There is a 4″ positive ease added into this garment as it is designed to be loose fitting. For example, the XS is 28″ but the finished measurement will be 32″. If you want a tighter fitting project, you will want to adjust your size accordingly.
- You will be making two of these pieces and sewing them together, so keep in mind that each piece is only half the size of your finished garment.
- Keep in mind when creating your sleeves that you have a single crocheting edging which will add close to 1/2″ to the width to the sleeve.

Measurement Sizing Chart
|Size||Chest||Chain Count||Full Length||Sleeve Width|
Make two (Be sure to read the NOTES section before starting your garment).
At the end of the same row you are currently working, ch 32, place a st marker in your last ch. Join a new strand of yarn on the opposite side of your project, chain 30, fasten off the chain 30 only.
NOTE: My sleeves are 3/4″ sleeves. Remember that 15 dc = 4″, so my sleeve measurement is 8″. If you want shorter sleeves, you’ll have to crochet less chain stitches remembering that your left side (for right-handed and right side (for left-handed) should have 2 more chains in the count than the opposite side.

You’ll see from the above photo that I decided to leave a slit in the side of my project. It’s a personal choice really, but I felt like it set better on my hips and wanted to try something different.
