--------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked bottom up, back and forth from mid front. READ CROCHET INFO!
Work 246-265-284-313-342-380 ch on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran. Continue with 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 sc in each of the next 4-5-6-5-4-6 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 205-221-237-261-285-317 sc.
Continue diagram A.1 as follows: ch 3 up from first sc, 1 dc in next sc, diagram a over the first 9 sc, diagram b until 10 sc remain, diagram c over the first 8 sc, then 1 dc in each of the last 2 sc (= 25-27-29-32-35-39 repetitions on row).
Repeat the 4 rows in A.1 upwards until piece measures approx. 32-32-32-36-36-36 cm / 12½"-12½"-12½"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"'' – finish after 4th row in diagram.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
On next row work dc as shown in 5th row in diagram, i.e. as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, * 2 dc in ch-space, 2 dc in next ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc *, repeat from *-*, finish with 2 dc in each of the last 2 ch-spaces and 1 dc in each of the last 4 dc = 204-220-236-260-284-316 dc.
Then finish front and back piece separately.

FIRST FRONT PIECE:
Work dc back and forth over the first 50-53-57-62-68-75 dc on row. At the same time dec towards the armhole on every row: 2 dc 0-0-1-2-3-5 times and 1 dc 1-2-2-3-5-6 times – SEE DECREASE TIP = 49-51-53-55-57-59 dc remain.
When piece measures 42-43-44-47-48-49 cm / 16½"-17"-17 1/4"-18½"-19"-19 1/4", beg neck dec as follows: Dec 13-13-14-14-15-15 dc 1 time, 3 dc 1 time, 2 dc 2 times and 1 dc 3 times = 26-28-29-31-32-34 dc remain on row.
Cut the yarn when piece measures approx. 52-53-54-59-60-61 cm / 20½"-21"-21 1/4"-23 1/4"-23½"-24".

OTHER FRONT PIECE:
Work as first front piece but reversed.

BACK PIECE:
Work dc back and forth over the middle 94-100-108-118-130-144 dc (do not work over the 5-7-7-9-9-11 sts in each side = armhole).
AT THE SAME TIME dec towards armhole in each side as on front piece = 92-96-100-104-108-112 dc.
When piece measures 50-51-52-57-58-59 cm / 19 3/4"-20"-20½"-22½"-22 3/4"-23 1/4", work 1 row only over the outermost 28-30-31-33-34-36 dc in one side for shoulder, then work 1 more row while at the same time dec 2 dc towards the neck, work the rest of row = 26-28-29-31-32-34 dc on shoulder, cut the yarn.
Piece measures approx. 52-53-54-59-60-61 cm / 20½"-21"-21 1/4"-23 1/4"-23½"-24".
Work the same way on the other shoulder.

FLOUNCE AT THE BOTTOM OF BODY:
Work in the sc row at the bottom of body as follows - beg from WS:
ROW 1: 1 sc in first sc, * ch 3, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire row.
ROW 2: Turn with ch 5, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row.
ROW 3: Turn with ch 6, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 6, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row.
ROW 4: Work as follows in every ch-space: 2 sc + 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch) + 2 sc. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth and sewn tog at the end.
Ch 68-68-78-78-78-87 on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran.
Turn and work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in each of the next 6-6-4-4-4-7 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 57-57-65-65-65-73 sc.
Continue to work diagram A.1 as follows: Diagram a over the first 9 sc, diagram b until 8 sc remain, then diagram c (= 7-7-8-8-8-9 repetitions on row). Continue like this until the 4 rows in diagram A.1 have been worked a total of 3 times vertically.
Piece measures approx. 12 cm / 4¾''. On next row work dc as shown in 5th row in diagram, i.e. as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, * 2 dc in ch-space, 2 dc in next ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc *, repeat from *-*, finish with 2 dc in each of the last 2 ch-spaces and 1 dc in each of the last 2 dc = 56-56-64-64-64-72 dc.
Continue with 1 dc in every dc – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'', inc 1 dc in each side by working 2 dc in next to last dc in each side.
Repeat inc 9-12-11-13-16-15 more times:
SIZE S: Every 4th row,
SIZE M + L: Every 3rd row,
SIZE XL: Alternately every other and 3rd row,
SIZE XXL + XXXL: Every other row
= 76-82-88-92-98-104 dc.
When piece measures 49-48-47-46-45-44 cm / 19¼''-19''-18½''-18''-17¾''-17¼'' (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), dec for sleeve cap on every row in each side as follows: 3 dc 1 time, 2 dc 5-6-8-9-10-11 times and 3 dc 1 time.
Piece now measures approx. 55 cm / 21½'' for all sizes, cut the yarn.

EDGE AT THE BOTTOM OF SLEEVE:
Work in the sc row at the bottom of sleeve as follows - beg from WS:
ROW 1: 1 sc in first sc, * ch 5, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire row - NOTE: For the no of sts to add up skip only 1 sc the last time in sizes S and M. In sizes L and XL skip 3 sc the last time.
Turn piece.
ROW 2: Work as follows in every ch-space: 2 sc + 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch) + 2 sc. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams and sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam and sew sleeves in body.
Work up along right band, around the neck and down along left band as follows: 1 sc in first st, * ch 3, skip approx. 1 cm / ½'', 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-*.
Sew buttons on left band – top button should be approx. 1 cm / ½'' from the top, then evenly spaced downwards. Button in ch-spaces on right band.
