Notes: City Lights is crocheted sideways in four pieces, in a stitch that creates a ribbed look. The front and back panels begin at the side of the body, with increases and decreases at one end to shape the raglan and neckline. The sleeves are shaped at both ends with large increases and decreases. With the RS facing, the hem edge of each piece will be on the right and the top shoulder edge on the left.

US crochet terminology used throughout.
