hdc dec – half double crochet decrease: yarn over, insert hook into the back loop of next stitch and draw up a loop; now you have three loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw up a loop in the next stitch (through the back loop again). Yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on your hook.

Sleeves of the crochet oversized sweater:

Make two.

Here is the time when you need smaller hook size.

Using hook 7 mm work 56 chain, or 50 if you do not want to fold cuffs.

Row 1: Using 6 mm hook 1 sc into the 2d ch from hook, 7 sc in next ch, change to 7 mm hook, 1 hdc in each ch to end turn.

Row 2: Using 7 mm hook, 1 ch, 2 hdc in 1st hdc, 1 hdc into each st until you have 8 sts, change to 6 mm hook, 1 sc into each sc to the end (through the back loop too), turn.

As you might already understood we are going to change the hook size while crocheting the cuff. Do not forget as I am not going to mention it further.

After you finish the first sleeve leave a long tail (1 meter at least). Repeat everything for the second one and leave long tail again.

And for the assembly part I do suggest you watching the third part of video tutorial because there are some tricky moments that better to watch than write about.
