On every sc row replace first sc with 1 ch.
On every dc row replace first dc with 3 ch.
ROW 1: 1 dc with heather in every sc.
ROW 2: 1 sc with purple in every dc.
Repeat rows 1 and 2.
To avoid cutting the yarn between every row work as follows:
Work 1st row with dc from RS with heather, leave the yarn.
Work 2nd row from RS with sc with purple, leave the yarn.
Work 3rd row from WS with dc with yarn from 1st row (heather).
Work 4th row from WS with sc with yarn from 2nd row (purple).
INCREASE TIP: Work 2 dc/sc in a dc/sc.
DECREASE TIP (applies to raglan):
Work until 1 sc/dc remains before marker, skip 2 sc/dc (marker is in the middle of these sts) = 8 dec sts per row.
DECREASE TIP 2:
Crochet 1 dc/sc tog as follows: Work 1 dc/sc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc/sc but on last pull through, pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dc/sc dec.
Read US/UK above! Ch 236-255-278-301-334-367 with purple on hook size 3.5 mm/E. Continue with 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the next 3-1-3-5-3-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 202-218-238-258-286-314 sc. READ CROCHET INFO!

Insert 1 marker 53-57-62-67-74-81 sts in from each side (back piece = 96-104-114-124-138-152 sts).
When piece measures 5 cm / 2’’, inc 1 dc/sc on each side of markers (= 4 inc) - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 3-3½-3½-3½-4-4 cm / 1 1/8”-1¼”-1¼”-1¼”-1½”-1½” 6 more times (= 7 inc in total) = 230-246-266-286-314-342 sts. When piece measures 28-29-30-31-32-33 cm / 11’’-11 3/8’’-11¾’’-12¼’’-12½’’-13’’, work next row as follows - make sure that this is a row worked from RS with dc:
Work 1 dc in each of the first 56-60-65-70-77-84 sc (right front piece), skip 8 sc, work 1 dc in each of the next 102-110-120-130-144-158 sc, skip 8 sc, work 1 dc in each of the last 56-60-65-70-77-84 sc = 214-230-250-270-298-326 dc.
Put piece aside.
Work back and forth and sew tog afterwards.
Ch 59-61-66-68-70-73 with purple on hook size 3.5 mm/E. Continue with 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the next 1-3-1-3-5-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 50-52-56-58-60-62 sc. READ CROCHET INFO! Then work PATTERN until finished measurements - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 7 cm / 2¾’’, inc 1 st in each side on a row with dc, repeat inc on every row with dc 26-27-27-28-29-30 more times (= 27-28-28-29-30-31 times in total) = 104-108-112-116-120-124 sts.
When piece measures 47-47-46-46-45-45 cm / 18½”-18½”-18”-18”-17¾”-17¾” (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulder), work next row as follows - make sure that this is a row worked with dc: Work sl sts over the first 4 sc, work 1 dc in every sc until 4 sc remain = 96-100-104-108-112-116 dc, cut the yarns.
Now work the parts tog as follows:
Work 1 sc in every dc from left front piece, 1 sc in every dc from sleeve, 1 sc in every dc from back piece, 1 sc in every dc from sleeve, 1 sc in every dc from right front piece = 406-430-458-486-522-558 sc.
Work 2 more rows with pattern, then beg dec for raglan. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body piece = 4 markers.
Dec for raglan on every row 39-41-43-45-47-49 times in total – read DECREASE TIP!
AT THE SAME TIME as dec for raglan begins, do not work over the first and last 5 dc/sc on row, and also AT THE SAME TIME beg dec for neck. Dec for neck by working the first 2 and the last 2 sts on row tog – READ DECREASE TIP 2, dec for neck every 3rd row 12-14-11-7-0-0 times, then every other row 0-0-6-13-23-20 times and then every row 0-0-0-0-2-10 times (= 12-14-17-20-25-30 dec in total).
After all dec for raglan and neck are done, 60-64-70-76-86-96 dc/sc remain on row. Work 1 row with dc while dec 2-4-8-12-20-27 dc evenly - SEE DECREASE TIP 2 = 58-60-62-64-66-69 dc.
Sew sleeve seams. Sew the opening under the sleeves. Sew on buttons on left front piece, top button 1 cm / ½’’ before dec for neck beg, bottom button approx. 8 cm / 3’’ from bottom edge. Button between 2 dc on right front piece.
