PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3 and read explanation below.

INCREASE TIP 1 (applies ROW 2):
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same sc.

INCREASE TIP 2:
All inc are done on rows/rounds with only dc (i.e. not on rows/rounds with holes). Inc 1 dc by working 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next ch-space.

PATTERN A.1:
ROUND 1: ch 1, 1 sc in 3rd ch from previous round, * ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-*, finish with ch 3 and 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round = 56-60-64-68-72-76 ch-spaces. Sl sts until 1st ch-space.
ROUND 2: ch 1, 1 sc in same space, ** 7 dc in next ch-space, * 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** the entire round (14-15-16-17-18-19 times in total) - but when repeating the last time, repeat *-* 2 times, then finish round with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round. Sl sts until 1st dc.
ROUND 3: * Work 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc with 1 ch between every dc (NOTE: Replace 1st dc on round with 3 ch) = 7 dc and 6 ch-spaces, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Sl sts until 1st ch-space.
ROUND 4: Work 1 PICOT - read explanation below - in every ch-space the entire round (= 7 picots over every repetition), finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round. Sl sts until ch-space on 1st picot.
ROUND 5: ** In ch-space on each of the next 6 picots work * 1 dc in ch-space, ch 1 *, repeat from *-* 2 times in ch-space on next picot ** = 8 dc and 8 ch-spaces over every repetition, repeat from **-** the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 6 (not shown in diagram): ch 3 (counted as 1st dc), 1 dc in 1st ch-space, work 2 dc in every ch-space the entire round = 16 dc over every repetition, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 224-240-256-272-288-304 dc. Do not cut the yarn.

PICOT:
1 picot = 1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc in same ch-space/sc.

PATTERN A.2:
ROUND 1: ch 1, 1 sc in 3rd ch from previous round, * ch 4, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-*, finish with ch 4 and 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round = 56-60-64-68-72-76 ch-spaces. Sl sts until 1st ch-space.
ROUND 2: ch 1, 1 sc in same space, ** 7 dc in next ch-space, * 1 sc in next ch-space, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** the entire round (15 times in total) - but when repeating the last time, repeat *-* 2 times, then finish round with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round. Sl sts until 1st dc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc with 1 ch between every dc = 7 dc and 6 ch-spaces, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Sl sts until 1st ch-space.
ROUND 4: Work 1 picot in every ch-space the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round.

PATTERN A.3 (neck edge):
ROW 1: ch 1, 1 sc in 1st sc, * ch 3, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* until 2 sc remain, finish with ch 3 and 1 sc in last sc = 32-34-36-38-40-42 sc and 31-33-35-37-39-41 ch-spaces, turn.
ROW 2: Sl sts until 1st ch-space, ch 1, 1 sc in same space, * in next ch-space work 3 bobbles - read explanation below - with 2 ch between every bobble, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row (finish with 1 sc in last ch-space), turn.
ROW 3: Work 1 picot in every ch-space and 1 picot in every sc.

BOBBLE:
1 bobble = work 2 dc in same ch-space - but wait with last pull through on both sts, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

Worked from neck and down with vent mid back. The piece is first worked back and forth and then in the round.
ROW 1: With Muskat and hook size 4.5 mm/US 7, ch 95-101-107-113-119-125, turn and work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 sc in every ch = 94-100-106-112-118-124 sc (divisible by 3 + 1 sc), turn.
ROW 2: ch 3 (counted as 1st dc), then work dc in every sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 31-31-31-33-33-33 dc - READ INCREASE TIP 1 - evenly on row = 125-131-137-145-151-157 dc, turn.
ROW 3 (with holes): ch 4 (counted as 1st dc + 1 ch), * skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row = 63-66-69-73-76-79 dc with 1 ch between every dc, turn.
ROW 4 (with dc): ch 3 (counted as 1st dc), 1 dc in 1st ch-space, work 2 dc in every ch-space on row - AT THE SAME TIME inc 16-16-16-18-18-18 dc - READ INCREASE TIP 2 - evenly on row, NOTE! Work 1 dc in last ch-space on row, finish with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row = 141-147-153-163-169-175 dc, turn.
ROW 5: Work as ROW 3 = 71-74-77-82-85-88 dc with 1 ch between every dc, turn.
ROW 6: ch 3, 1 dc in 1st ch-space, work 2 dc in every ch-space on row - AT THE SAME TIME inc 3-5-7-5-7-9 dc evenly on row, finish with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row = 144-152-160-168-176-184 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Continue to work in the round as follows:
ROUND 1 (with holes): ch 4 (counted as 1st dc + 1 ch), * skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 72-76-80-84-88-92 dc with 1 ch between every dc.
ROUND 2 (with dc): ch 3 (counted as 1st dc), 1 dc in 1st ch-space, work 2 dc in every ch-space the entire round - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 dc evenly on round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 148-156-164-172-180-188 dc.
Repeat 1st and 2nd ROUND 5-6-7-8-9-10 more times (i.e. inc with 4 dc evenly every other round a total of 6-7-8-9-10-11 times) = 168-180-192-204-216-228 dc on round. Then work 1st and 2nd ROUND alternately WITHOUT inc until piece measures approx. 26-29-31-34-36-39 cm / 10 1/4"-11½"-12 1/4"-13½"-14 1/4"-15 1/4" (finish with 1 round with only dc = ROUND 2).
Then work diagram A.1 - see diagram and explanation above.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 224-240-256-272-288-304 dc on round. Then work diagram A.2 - see diagram and read explanation above - 1 time vertically, fasten off.

NECK EDGE:
Worked back and forth. Work from RS diagram A.3 - see diagram and read explanation above - around the entire neck edge (start mid back), do not cut the yarn. Then ch for 24 cm / 9½'', turn and work sl sts in every ch on return = 1 tie, fasten off. Work another tie the same way in the corner on the other side of vent.
