PICOT:
4 ch, 1 tr in the first ch made.

DECREASE TIP 1 (applies to front piece):
Dec 4 tr at beg and end of row by working the 5 first and 5 last tr tog.
This is done as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through, * work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, make 1 YO on hook and pull thread through all 6 loops on hook.

DECREASE TIP 2 (applies to sleeve cap):
Dec 3 tr at beg and end of row by working the 4 first and 4 last tr tog.
This is done as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through, * work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, make 1 YO on hook and pull thread through all 5 loops on hook.

PATTERN – SLEEVE:
ROW 1: 4 ch (= 1 dc + 3 ch), skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, * 3 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch (= first tr), then work 2 tr in every ch-space and 1 tr in every dc between ch-spaces, finish with 3 tr in last ch-space. Turn piece.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row until finished measurements.

Continue with explanation below front piece further down in pattern.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 17-19-22 ch-spaces. Continue as follows:
ROW 1: Work 1 tr in every dc (first tr is replaced by 3 ch) and 3 tr in every ch-space – AT THE SAME TIME work the first 5 and last 5 tr on row tog - SEE DECREASE TIP 1 – (i.e. there are 8 tr less on row every time 1st row is worked) = 61-69-81 tr on row.
ROW 2: 5 ch (= 1 dc + 4 ch) up from first tr (i.e. the 5 tr worked tog), * skip 3 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 4 ch *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 dc in last tr (i.e. in the 5 tr worked tog) = 15-17-20 ch-spaces on row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 a total of 4-4-5 times, (= approx. 8-8-10 cm). 9-11-12 ch-spaces remain at the edge of front piece. Fasten off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work same way as on left front piece over 17-19-22 ch-spaces in the right side.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth and sewn tog afterwards.
Work 30-34-37 loose ch (incl 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 5 mm with Paris.
ROW 1: 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, 1 tr in each of the next 5-2-5 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the rest of the row = 25-28-31 tr. Turn piece.
Work 1 row with 1 tr in every tr - first tr is replaced by 3 ch. Then work PATTERN for sleeve - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 10 cm (adjust so that next row is 2nd row in pattern), inc 3 tr evenly. Repeat inc approx. every 8-10-12 cm 2 more times = 34-37-40 tr in total on row. NOTE: Hold the piece up when measuring the sleeve length otherwise the sleeve will be too long when worn. When piece measures approx. 29-35-40 cm (adjust so that next row is 1st row in pattern), dec in each side for sleeve cap as follows: Work sl sts over the first 4 tr, then work ch-spaces as before (work first ch-space up from 4th sl st made) until 3 tr remain, turn piece. On next row, work the first 4 and last 4 tr tog – SEE DECREASE TIP 2. Repeat dec every other row 3 more times. Fasten off, piece measures approx. 37-43-48 cm. Sew sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

ASSEMBLY:
Work 1 round around the entire body as follows - beg mid back of neck with 1 dc in first ch-space: * 1 picot (= 4 ch, 1 tr in first ch), skip approx. 1½ cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* around the entire piece, finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
Work the same way around the bottom opening of the sleeves.
Sew sleeves in body - make sure that sleeve cap is sewn in at the top of armholes, i.e. where the distance is shortest.

Work a ch-row with approx. 50 ch on hook size 5 mm with Paris. Fasten off, this is used to close the jacket mid front.
