MEASURE TIPS:
All length measures are taken holding the piece up.

FRONT PIECE:
Ch 86-96-106-115-125-134 loosely on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with Cotton Viscose.
ROW 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the next 6-4-2-5-3-6 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* the rest of the ch-row = 72-80-88-96-104-112 sc.
ROW 2: Turn piece with 8 ch, skip the first 3 sc, 1 sc in next sc (= 4th sc), ch 3, 1 sc in same sc, * ch 7, skip 3 sc, 1 sc in next sc, ch 3, 1 sc in same sc *, repeat from *-* = 18-20-22-24-26-28 large ch spaces.
ROW 3: Turn piece with 8 ch, 1 sc in first large ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in same ch space, * ch 7, 1 sc in next large ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in same ch space *, repeat from *-*.
Repeat 3rd row upwards.
When piece measures approx. 40-42-43-45-46-48 cm / 15 3/4"-16½"-17"-17 3/4"-18"-19", beg dec for neck. Work next row as follows: Work as before over the first 7-7-8-9-10-11 large ch spaces, turn piece.
Work back, turn piece, work as before over the first 6-6-7-8-9-10 large ch spaces, turn piece.
Then work back and forth over these 6-6-7-8-9-10 ch spaces until piece measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm / 19 3/4''-20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8'', cut the yarn.
Repeat the same way in the other side (the middle 6-8-8-8-8-8 ch spaces = neck).

BACK PIECE:
Work as front piece but do not dec for neck, just continue to work straight up until the same no of ch spaces have been worked vertically as on front piece. Cut the yarn.

ASSEMBLY:
Crochet the shoulder seams tog as follows:
1 sc in first large ch space on front piece, ch 2, 1 sc in first large ch space on back piece, * ch 2, 1 sc in next large ch space on front piece, ch 2, 1 sc in next large ch space on back piece *, repeat from *-* along the entire shoulder.
Crochet the side seams tog the same way up to armhole (armhole = 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm / 7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8 ¾''-9'').

NECK EDGE:
Work 1 round with sc around the neck, there should be approx. 1 sc in every small ch space and 5 sc in every large ch space, adjust so that the edge is not too tight (adjust so that no of sts is divisible by 4).
Work next round as follows: 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, * 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch), 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 picot and 1 sl st in first sc.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Work 2 rounds around the armholes the same way as around the neck.

BOTTOM EDGE:
Work 1 round with picots around the cast on edge at the bottom, the same way as last round around the neck and armholes.
