VEST:
Read US/UK above! Worked back and forth from mid front.
With Paris ch 189-204-219-242-264-287 on hook size 6 mm / J/10, turn.
ROW 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 2 ch *, repeat from *-* until 4-4-4-3-4-3 ch remain, skip next ch and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 3-3-3-2-3-2 ch = 126-136-146-161-176-191 sc on row, turn piece.
ROW 2: ch 1, then work 1 sc in every sc from previous row = 126-136-146-161-176-191 sc, turn piece.
ROW 3: Work as 2nd row.
ROW 4: Then work pattern according to diagram A.1, i.e. ch 5 (= 1 tr + 1 ch), * skip 4 sc, in next sc work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr *, repeat from *-* until 5 sc remain, skip 4 sc and finish with ch 1 and 1 tr in last sc = 24-26-28-31-34-37 tr-groups, turn piece.
ROW 5: ch 5, in ch-space in every tr-group work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr, finish row with 1 ch and 1 tr in 4th ch on beg of previous row = 24-26-28-31-34-37 tr-groups, turn piece.

Repeat 5th row until piece measures approx. 16 cm / 6 1/4''. Work next row as follows: ch 4 (= 1 tr), in ch-space in the middle of every tr-group work 2 tr + ch 1 (instead of 2 ch) + 2 tr, finish row with 1 tr in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 24-26-28-31-34-37 tr-groups, turn piece.
Ch 1, 1 sc in same st, then work 1 sc in every tr the entire row, finish with 1 sc in 4th ch from beg of previous row, turn piece = 98-106-114-126-138-150 sc.
Continue to work as follows:
ROW 1: Work pattern according to diagram A.2, i.e. work ch 1, then work 1 sc in every sc the entire row AT THE SAME TIME dec 18-18-18-18-14-14 sc evenly – READ DECREASE TIP = 80-88-96-108-124-136 sc, turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch (= 1 dc), then work 1 dc in every sc the entire row = 80-88-96-108-124-136 dc on row.
ROW 3-5: Work as 2nd row = 80-88-96-108-124-136 dc.
ROW 6: Work 1 sc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts as follows: Size S + M + L + XL + XXL: Inc 5-9-5-5-5 sc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP. Size XXXL: Dec 3 sts evenly – READ DECREASE TIP = 85-97-101-113-129-133 sc, turn piece.
ROW 7: ch 1, 1 sc in same st, then work 1 sc in every sc from previous row = 85-97-101-113-129-133 sc, turn piece.
ROW 8: ch 5, * skip 3 sc, in next sc work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr *, repeat from *-* until 4 sc remain on row, skip 3 sc and finish with 1 ch and 1 tr in last sc on row = 20-23-24-27-31-32 tr-groups on row, turn piece.
ROW 9: Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 again, i.e. ch 5, in ch-space in the middle of every tr-group work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr, finish row with ch 1 and 1 tr in 4th ch on beg of previous row = 20-23-24-27-31-32 tr-group.
Repeat 9th row upwards.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾'', divide for markers as follows: Insert 1 marker after 5-6-6-7-8-8 tr-groups in from each side (= 10-11-12-13-15-16 tr-groups between markers on back piece). Finish each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 10-11-12-13-15-16 tr-groups. Continue back and forth with tr-groups as shown in A.1. AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec for armholes in each side in size XXL + XXXL as follows: Dec 1 tr-group on beg of row as shown in A.3, work as before until 1 tr-group remains on row, finish row as shown in A.4 (do not dec in the other sizes) = 10-11-12-13-13-14 tr-groups remain on row. Continue pattern back and forth until 1 row remains before piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''.
Now work 1 row with tr-groups only over the outermost 3-4-4-5-5-5 tr-groups in the one side of piece: ch 5, * in ch-space in the middle of next tr-group work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-5 times in total, finish with 1 tr in last tr in same tr-group, turn piece.
Now work 1 row sc as follows: ch 1, 1 sc in same st, * 1 sc in each of the first 2 tr, 1 sc in ch-space in the middle of tr-group, 1 sc in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-5 times in total, finish with 1 sc in last ch and 1 sc in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 18-23-23-28-28-28 sc on row.
Fasten off. Repeat on the other shoulder (i.e. do not work over the middle 4-3-4-3-3-4 tr-groups = neck.)

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 5-6-6-7-8-8 tr-groups. Continue back and forth with tr-groups as on back piece.
AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec for armhole in the side in size XXL + XXXL as shown in A.4 (do not dec in the other sizes) = 5-6-6-7-7-7 tr-groups.
Continue pattern back and forth until piece measures approx. 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8'' - make sure that same no of rows with tr-groups has been worked as on back piece.
Now work 1 row sc as on back piece only over the outermost 3-4-4-5-5-5 tr-groups on shoulder (i.e. do not work over the 2 tr-groups towards the neck = collar) = 18-23-23-28-28-28 sc. Fasten off. Insert 1 marker on the shoulder.
Now work tr-groups back and forth over collar as follows: ch 5, in ch-space in first tr-group work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr, in ch-space in next tr-group work 2 tr + ch 2 + 2 tr, ch 1 and finish with 1 tr in last tr in same tr-group.
Continue back and forth like this until collar measures approx. 10-8-10-8-8-10 cm / 4"-3 1/8"-4"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-4" from marker on shoulder.
Then work 1 row sc as follows: ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in next ch, 1 sc in each of the first 2 tr, 1 sc in ch-space in the middle of tr-group, 1 sc in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, finish with 1 sc in last ch and 1 sc in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 14 sc, cut the yarn.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed. When dec for armhole in size XXL + XXXL, dec 1 tr-group as shown in A.3.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. Sew collar tog mid back (sew edge to edge) and sew it on to neck line at the back of neck.
Sew on buttons on right front piece – see picture.
Button through the crochet edge explained below.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work a finishing edge around the entire opening on vest and around both armholes as follows: 1 sc in first st, * ch 5, skip approx. 2½ cm / 7/8'', 1 sc in next st/ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with ch 5 and 1 sl st in sc from beg of round.
