PICOT:
Ch 4, then work 1 dc in the first ch made.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 3 tr at the beg and end of row by working the first 4 or last 4 tr tog.
This is done as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (when dec at the beg of row, ch 3 instead of 4), work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through, work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through, work the last tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 5 loops on hook.

PATTERN – SLEEVE:
ROW 1: ch 4 (these replace 1 sc + 3 ch), skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr, * ch 3, skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Turn piece.
ROW 2: ch 4 (these replace first tr), then work 2 tr in every ch-space and 1 tr in every sc between ch-spaces, finish with 3 tr in last ch-space. Turn piece.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row until finished measurements.

Continue with explanation below front piece.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 21-24-28 ch-spaces. Continue as follows:
ROW 1: Crochet 1 tr in every sc (first tr is replaced with 4 ch) and 2 tr in every ch-space – AT THE SAME TIME work the first 4 and the last 4 tr on row tog - SEE DECREASE TIP! – i.e. 6 tr less on row every time 1st row is worked.
ROW 2: ch 4 (= 1 sc + 3 ch) up from first tr (i.e the 4 worked tog), * skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr, ch 3 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sc in last tr (i.e. the 4 worked tog).
Repeat 1st and 2nd row a total of 4-5-6 times (= approx. 13-17-20 cm / 5"-6 3/4"-8"). 13-14-16 ch-spaces remain at the edge of front piece. Cut the yarn.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work the same way as on left front piece over 21-24-28 ch-spaces in the right side.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth and sewn tog at the end.
With Paris ch 42-46-49 loosely (includes 4 ch to turn with) on hook size 6 mm / J/10 .
ROW 1: 1 tr in 5th ch from hook, 1 tr in each of the next 5-2-5 ch, * skip1 ch , 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 4 ch remain, skip 1 ch and work 1 tr in each of the last 3 ch = 34-37-40 tr. Turn piece.
Work 1 row with 1 tr in every tr (first tr is replaced with 4 ch). Continue with PATTERN for sleeve – see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 20 cm / 8'' (make sure that next row is 2nd row in pattern), inc 3 tr evenly. Repeat inc approx. every 8 cm / 3'' 3 more times = 46-49-52 tr in total on row. NOTE: Hold the piece up when measuring the sleeve length otherwise it will be to long when worn.
When piece measures approx. 49 cm / 19 1/4'' for all sizes (make sure that next row is 1st row in pattern), dec in each side for sleeve cap as follows: Work sl sts over the first 4 tr, then work ch-spaces as before until 3 tr remain, turn piece. On next row work the first 4 and the last 4 tr tog – SEE DECREASE TIP!
Repeat dec every other row 2 more times.
Cut the yarn, piece measures approx. 59 cm / 23 1/4'' in all sizes.
Sew sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

ASSEMBLY:
Work 1 round around the entire body as follows – beg mid back of neck with 1 sc in first ch-space. * 1 picot (= ch 4, 1 dc in first ch), skip approx. 1½ cm / ½'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* around the entire piece, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
Work the same way around the opening of the sleeves.
Sew sleeves in body - make sure that the sleeve caps are sewn in at the top of armhole, i.e. at the shortest distance between the armholes.
