BPDC.Row 4 & 5: ​​Repeat rows 2 & 3
Row 6: ​​ch1, sc in each st but you will increase 18 (22, 28) stitches evenly along this row, turn you work. You will have 50 (66, 82) st.
Row 7: ​​ch1, *sc in next 2 st, dc in next 6 st* repeat from *to* across ending with sc in last 2 st, turn your work.
Row 8: ​​ch1, sc in the next 2st, *(Over the next 6dc you will be working around the post only), skip the first 2st, Now is where it may get tricky you will want to make your next 2 FPTR in the 2 skipped st, you will work behind the FPTR you just made, just push them down slightly so you can get to the post of the skipped st, Make your first FPTR around the post of the first skipped st and repeat again for the second, make 2 FPDC around the post of the next 2 dc, sc in the next 2 s* repeat from *to* across. Turn your work, you will have 6 (8, 10) braided cables.

Row 10: ​​ch1, sc in the first 2 st, *(you will be skipping the sc from the previous row when working the cable over the next 6 st), FPDC around the post of the FPTR from Row 8 skipping the middle 2 st, you will FPTR around the post of the FPDC from row 8, now instead of working behind your FPTR like you did in Row 8 you will work the 2 skipped st from the front of your work, crossing over the 2 FPTR you just made, working a FPTR in the first skipped st from Row 8, make another FPTR in the next st, you will now work a sc in the 2 sc from row 9* repeat from *to* across. Turn your work.
Row 11: ​​ch1, sc in each st across, turn your work. 50 (66, 82) st.Rows 12-53 (12-57, 12-61): ​​Repeat rows 8-11
Test your fit, this should just sit across the center of your breasts about nipple height, if the dress is too long for you or not long enough decrease the rows by 4 or repeat rows 8-11 as many times as needed to get length. Be sure to mark how many rows you do as you will need to add or decrease from the back.
NOTE:​​ Row 8 will be worked the same except you will be working around the post of the previous FP st from the Row 10 and not the dc as stated in Row 8, and as you did for Row 10 you will skip the sc from previous row when working the cable over the 6st.
Tip:​​ if the 2 middle stitches are slanted to the right you would skip the first 2 FP st from the rows below, if the 2 middle stitches are slanted to the left you would make FPDC in the first 2 st
V-Neck:
Grab your stitch maker and place in the 25th (33rd, 41st) stitch from the right hand side of your work. You will have 4 cables on either side.
Row 54 (58, 62): ​​Repeat in pattern, so you should be repeating Row 8 at this point, but only work on the 33 st, you will end with 1 sc not 2. Turn your work. 25 (33, 41) st
Row 55 (59, 63): ​​ch1, Sc2tog, sc in each st across, 24 (32, 40) st in total, turn your work.

Second half of the V-neck:
You will join your yarn to the sc just after the 25th (33rd, 41st) st from the first half of the V neck (you skipped 25(33, 41) st for the first half, you will join your yarn in the 26, 34, 42 stitch)
Row 54 (58, 62): ​​sc in the same st as your join. Instead of starting your row with 2 sc your row started with 1 sc, Work in pattern, you should be repeating Row 8.
*Note: ​​because you are working on the other half of the V-neck your work in now reversed, you will be working your rows slightly different from the first half. You will end your sc rows with a decrease and begin your cable rows on the decrease neck edge having less stitches to start with. But no worries, it’ll get explained below.

For size Small Fasten off after Row 69, for sizes M/L, XL/2X continue below. Row (74-77, 77-80): ​​Repeat Rows 8-11, Fasten off.
Back of the Dress:
You will repeat rows 1-11 for the front of the dress,
Rows 12-69 (12-77, 12-80): 
​​Repeat Rows 8-11, Fasten off your work at the end of Row 77.
Time to Assemble the Shoulders:
With your front and back panels Right sides facing each other, Wrong side is facing you, line up the seams for the front and back shoulders.
You will want to either sl st or using your tapestry needle sew the seams together. I like to Slip stitch mine, making sure to match stitch for stitch from the front and back sl st across the 17 (25, 34) st of the front and fasten off, repeating the same thing for the other side.
Sleeves:
With your work flat in front of you, right side facing you, go to the seam of the shoulder and count 17 (17, 21) rows, Join your yarn.
Row 1: ​​ch1, sc the same st, sc in each of the next 16 (16, 20) rows, sc in the next 17 (17, 21) rows, you will have 34 (34, 42) sc, turn your work.
Row 2: ​​ch1, *sc in next 2 st, dc in next 6 st* repeat from *to* until you reach the last 2 st, sc in each of them, turn your work.
Row 3-36: ​​repeat rows 8-11 of the front of the dress, working on 4 (4, 5) cables.
Try the dress on to double check the sleeve length for your size, everyone’s arm length is different. The Length should just hit your wrist, if it doesn’t then repeat the 4 rows of the cable pattern until it does.
The Wrist Band:
Row 37: 
​​ch2, dc in each st across, 34 (34, 41)st turn your work.Row 38: ​​ch2, *BPDC2Tog, BPDC* repeat from *to* across, turn your workRow 39: ​​ch2, FPDC2Tog, all along your row, turn your work.Row 40: ​​ch2, BPDC all along your work. Fasten off.
Repeat the sleeve for the other side.

Assemble Sleeves and Side seams:
Fold your work so the wrong sides are facing you and all the seams are even. You will now join your yarn to the sleeve at the wrist and match stitch for stitch and sl st down the length of the sleeve, then you will continue to sl st the sides of your dress together matching stitch for stitch until you reach the bottom of the dress opening. Fasten off and repeat for the other side. Turn your dress right side facing you, the last step is the Collar of the dress.
The Collar:
Row 1: ​​With your hook and yarn, join to the back of the neck at the corner, ch2, dc in each st along the back of the neck, you will now dc in the V-neck, pick up 14 (18, 18) dc along one side of the neck and pick up 14 (18, 18) Dc along the other side of your V-Neck, join with the ch2.
Row 2: ​​ch2, dc in each st around your neck, sl st with the ch2 and fasten off.
Sew in all the loose tails and you are done with your Braided Oversized Sweater dress!
