The piece is worked top down. Worked back and forth from mid front. Ch 83-91-99-107-115-123 (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 4.5mm/US 7 with 1 strand Fabel, 1 strand Baby Merino and 1 strand Glitter.
Work first row as follows: 1 dc in 4th ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-*, skip 1 ch and finish with 1 dc in the last 2 ch = 61-67-73-79-85-91 dc.
Then work 10 rows according to A.1 (5 dc in each side for band. Band is worked with 1 dc in every dc and is not included in diagram) – read CROCHET INFO.

Continue to work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm / 8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾''.
Work next row as follows: 24-27-30-33-36-40 dc (front piece), ch 8 (= under sleeve), skip 30-32-34-36-38-40 dc from previous row (used for sleeve later), 38-44-50-56-62-70 dc (back piece), ch 8 (under sleeve), skip 30-32-34-36-38-40 dc from previous row (used for sleeve later) and 24-27-30-33-36-40 dc (front piece). Then work 1 dc in every dc/ch = 102-114-126-138-150-166 dc. Back piece = 46-52-58-64-70-78 dc, front piece = 28-31-34-37-40-44 dc.

The sleeve is worked top down. Beg by working mid under sleeve as follows:
Work 1 sc in the 5th ch of the 8 ch worked for armhole on body. Ch 3 (= 1 dc).
Then work 1 dc in each of next 3 ch. NOTE: Before continuing over the sts on upper sleeve, work 1 dc in the transition to body (to avoid hole).
Then work 1 dc in every dc over sts on upper sleeve. Work 1 dc in the transition before working 1 dc in the remaining ch under sleeve = 40-42-44-46-48-50 dc.
Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Work 1 dc in every dc. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 st on each side of marker, read DECREASE TIP, repeat dec every 11-11-11-8-8-8 cm / 4 3/8"-4 3/8"-4 3/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8" 3-3-3-4-4-4 more times (4-4-4-5-5-5 dec in total) = 32-34-34-36-38-38 dc.

Ch 17 (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 4.5mm/US 7 with 2 strands Baby Merino and 1 strand Glitter. Work first row as follows: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, then work 1 dc in every ch = 15 dc. Then work 1 dc in every dc until pocket flap measures 8 cm / 3''. Fasten off.
Crochet another pocket flap. Sew pocket flaps on to front piece, approx. 10 cm / 4'' from bottom edge. Fasten the pocket flaps only in the upper edge.

1 sc, * ch 3, 1 dc in 1st ch, skip approx. 1-1½ cm / 3/8"-5/8", 1 sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Work the same way at the bottom of the sleeves.

Sew 6-6-6-7-7-7 buttons on to left front piece, bottom button approx. 8 cm / 3'' from bottom edge, the top button 2 cm / 3/4'' from upper edge. Place the other buttons evenly between the bottom and top button.
