Work next row as follows: 1 sc in 2nd ch, 1 sc in each of the next 5-3-3-5-3 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 63-69-69-75-81 sc (ch at beg of row = 1 sc) – READ CROCHET INFO! Insert 14-15-16-17-18 markers in the piece as follows:
First marker after 5-6-4-5-6 sts, then insert 13-14-15-16-17 markers 4 sts apart, after last marker there are 6-7-5-6-7 sts.
Work back and forth according to diagram A.1 - AT THE SAME TIME on next row inc 1 st at all markers – READ INCREASE TIP!
Repeat inc every other row 5-5-3-3-2 more times and then every 4th row 0-0-2-2-3 times = 147-159-165-177-189 sts. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Continue to work A.2 as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 4 sc (= band), a over the next 7 sc, then b until 10 sc remain, c over the next 6 sc and 1 dc in each of the last 4 sc (= band). Work diagram 1 time vertically – NOTE: On the first 2 rows work the four first and the last 4 sts in each side in dc, then work the pattern as before - inc at the markers as before on 4th row in diagram. On 7th row in diagram inc 16-13-16-15-12 sts evenly (do not inc over the first and last 4 band sts) = 177-187-197-209-219 sts.
Work last row in A.2 as follows: 28-30-31-33-34 sc (= front piece), 6 ch (= under sleeve), skip 36-38-40-43-45 sc (to be used for sleeve later), work 49-51-55-57-61 sc (= back piece), 6 ch (= under sleeve), skip 36-38-40-43-45 sc (to be used for sleeve later) and work 28-30-31-33-34 sc (= front piece).
There are now 117-123-129-135-141 sts on body. Remove all markers on yoke and insert a new marker in the middle of the 6 ch under each sleeve.
Beg on 1st row in A.2 again and work a, b and c the same way as last time (every ch under sleeve = 1 sc) - the first and last 4 sts in each side = bands, only work these in dc on the first 2 rows.
Continue A.2 until repetition has been worked 4-4-4-5-5 times in total after yoke, piece measures now approx. 24-24-24-30-30 cm / 9½"-9½"-9½"-11 3/4"-11 3/4" from armhole and down. The smallest size is now done.
Continue with diagram A.1 for 0-4-6-4-6 cm / 0-1½"-2½"-1½"-2½", i.e. piece measures 24-28-30-34-36 cm / 9½"-11"-11 3/4"-13½"-14 1/4" from armhole and down.
To get the same texture as on body, work back and forth. There are now 42-44-46-49-51 sts in total on sleeve.
Beg to work mid under sleeve in 3rd ch worked for armhole on body – work first row from WS.
Work 1 row with 1 sc in every ch/sc, AT THE SAME TIME dec 6 sc evenly = 36-38-40-43-45 sc. Work next row as follows – from RS: Work 1 dc in each of the first 3-1-2-0-1 sc, then work diagram A.2 as follows: a over 7 sts, then b until 8-6-7-6-7 sts remain, c over 6 sts and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 2-0-1-0-1 sc.
Turn and work as follows: On 4th row first time diagram is worked, dec 5-1-3-0-2 sts evenly – SEE DECREASE TIP = 31-37-37-43-43 sts. No of sts will now fit the repetition so next time you start A.2, no dc are worked mid under sleeve in any size.
Continue with A.2 downwards 3-4-4-5-5 more times – AT THE SAME TIME, third time repetition is worked, dec 0-6-6-6-6 sts evenly = 31-31-31-37-37 sts.
When A.2 are worked a total of 4-5-5-6-6 times on sleeve (piece measures approx. 24-30-30-36-36 cm / 9½"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"), continue with diagram A.1 until sleeve measures 26-30-32-38-40 cm / 10 1/4"-11 3/4"-12½"15"-15 3/4".
Cut the yarn – make it long and use it to sew tog sleeve mid under. Work the other sleeve the same way.
Sew sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. Sew on buttons evenly down on left band – top button should be 1 cm / ½'' from the top.
Button through sts on right band.
