3 pieces.

1 piece for the open neck

2 pieces for the cuff.

attach ribbed band.

Always hold the yarn double when crocheting.

The rib band starts with chain 8 depending on how thick you want your band to be mine is around 2.5 inches for chain 8.

So if you want your band bigger to add more chains for example maybe 10 or 12 chains or more.

The length of the ribbing band is just enough to cover your arm and the open neck.

Then attach them by sewing using a yarn needle.
