Replace first dc on every round/row with 3 ch.
Finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Finish every row with 1 dc in first dc from beg of previous row.
Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook = 1 st dec.
Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in one of the middle tr from previous row = 4 tr between every fan on round.
After first inc to 4 tr, continue to inc 1 tr between every section with fan pattern when piece measures 14-14-15-15-16-16 cm / 5½-5½-6-6-6¼-6¼, 21-21-21-22-23-23 cm / 8¼-8¼-8¼-8¾-9-9 and 28-28-28-28-28-28 cm / 11-11-11-11-11-11 = 7 tr between every fan when all inc are done.
The piece is worked top down.
Ch 92-92-100-100-107-108 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Karisma. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, then work 1 dc in every ch the entire row = 89-89-97-97-104-105 dc.
Continue to work as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 18-18-20-20-22-22 dc, 1 ch (= front piece), work 1 dc in each of the next 14 dc (= sleeve), ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 25-25-29-29-32-33 dc, 1 ch (= back piece), work 1 dc in each of the next 14 dc (= sleeve), ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the last 18-18-20-20-22-22 dc = 89-89-97-97-104-105 dc on row and 1 ch for each raglan line (= 4 ch)
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Work next row as follows: Work 1 dc in every dc but in every ch work 2 dc + ch 2 + 2 dc = 105-105-113-113-120-121 dc on row and 2 ch in every raglan line (= 8 ch).
Continue inc for raglan on every row as follows: Work 1 dc + 2 ch + 1 dc in each ch-space in every raglan line (= 8 dc inc on row)
NOTE! In size XXXL inc 1 st extra each side of front and back piece on the first 9 rows, i.e work 2 dc next to 2 ch on the side towards front and back pieces in every ch-space (= 12 inc in total on each of these rows), then continue as explained above with 8 inc per row.
Repeat inc for raglan on every row 18-19-20-21-22-23 more times (= 19-20-21-22-23-24 times in total) = 257-265-281-289-304-349 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work next row as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 39-40-43-44-47-57 dc (= front piece), skip the next 56-58-60-62-64-66 dc (= sleeve), work 8 ch, work 1 dc in each of the next 67-69-75-77-82-103 dc (= back piece), skip the next 56-58-60-62-64-66 dc (= sleeve), work 8 ch and work 1 dc in each of the last 39-40-43-44-47-57 dc.
Then finish body and sleeves separately.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work first row as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the 39-40-43-44-47-57 dc on front piece, 1 dc in every ch (= 8 dc), 1 dc in each of the 67-69-75-77-82-103 dc on back piece, 1 dc in every ch (= 8 dc) and 1 dc in each of the 39-40-43-44-47-57 dc on front piece = 161-165-177-181-192-233 dc on row. Insert 1 marker 43-44-47-48-51-61 sts in from each side (= 75-77-83-85-90-111 sts on back piece). Continue back and forth with 1 dc in every dc.
When piece measures 3 cm / 1, dec 1-1-1-0-0-1 dc on each side of both markers READ DECREASE TIP (= 4-4-4-0-0-4 dc dec). Repeat dec on the next 2-2-1-0-0-1 row (= 12-12-8-0-0-8 dc dec in total). When piece measures 6-7-8-9-10-11 cm / 2½"-2 3/4"-3"-3½"-4"-4½", inc 0-0-0-4-1-0 dc and dec 4-0-0-0-0-0 dc evenly = 145-153-169-185-193-225 dc on round.
When piece measures 7-8-9-10-11-12 cm / 2¾-3 1/8-3½-4-4 3/8-4¾, work fan pattern back and forth from mid front as follows:
ROW 1: 1 dc in each of the first 6 dc (= band), 1 sc in next dc, * ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 15-16-18-20-21-25 more times (= 16-17-19-21-22-26 times in total), ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, and finish with 1 dc in each of the next 6 dc (= band). Turn piece. There are now 34-36-40-44-46-54 ch-spaces with 6 dc in each side for band.
1 tr in each of the first 6 dc, * 4 dc in ch-space below, ch 2, 4 dc in next ch-space, 1 tr in each of the next 3 dc *, repeat from *-* until 2 ch-spaces remain, work 4 dc in ch-space below, ch 2, 4 dc in next ch-space, finish with 1 tr in each of the next 6 dc below. Turn piece.
1 tr in each of the first 6 tr, * 4 dc + 2 ch + 4 dc in ch-space below, 1 tr in each of the 3 tr from previous row *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch-space remains, 4 dc + 2 ch + 4 dc in ch-space, finish with 1 tr in each of the 6 tr on band, turn piece.
1 tr in each of the first 6 tr, * 4 dc + 2 ch + 4 dc in ch-space below, 1 tr in each of the three tr from previous row AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr Read INCREASE TIP *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch-space remains, 4 dc + 2 ch + 4 dc in this ch-space, finish with 1 tr in each of the 6 tr on band, turn piece.
Then continue the same way with fan pattern and 6 tr in each side for band, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr between every fan 3 more times - Read CROCHET TIP.
Continue to work until piece measures 45-47-49-51-53-55 cm / 17¾-18½-19¼-20-21-21½. Piece measures approx. 70-73-76-79-82-85 cm / 27½-28¾-30-31-32¼-33½ from shoulder. Fasten off.
= 56-58-60-62-64-66 sts. Insert 1 marker here NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Sleeve is worked in the round, top down. Beg by working mid under sleeve as follows: Work 1 sc in 5th ch of the 8 ch worked in armhole on body. Ch 3 (= 1 dc) and work 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch. Then work 1 dc in every dc over sleeve, before working 1 dc in each of the remaining 4 ch under sleeve = 64-66-68-70-72-74 dc. Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve.
When sleeve measures 3 cm / 1, dec 1 st on each side of marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 3-2½-2½-3-2½-2 cm / 1 1/8-7/8-7/8-1 1/8-7/8-3/4 11-12-13-11-12-13 more times (= 12-13-14-12-13-14 dec in total) = 40-40-40-46-46-46 dc remain.
Continue until sleeve measures 39-39-39-39-38-38 cm / 15¼-15¼-15¼-15¼-15-15, AT THE SAME TIME on last row dec 0-0-0-1-1-1 dc mid under sleeve = 40-40-40-45-45-45 dc remain.
Then work an edge as follows: - Remember CROCHET INFO!
1 sc in first dc, * ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3-3-3-4-4-4 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 3 more times (= 4 times in total), ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3-3-3-4-4-4 dc.
1 sc in first dc, * 4 dc in ch-space below, ch 2, 4 dc in next ch-space, 1 tr in each of the next 3-3-3-4-4-4 dc below *, repeat from *-* the entire way, finish with 1 sl st in first sc and 3 ch.
Work sl sts until the middle of first ch-space, * 4 dc + 2 ch + 4 dc in ch-space below, 1 tr in each of the 3-3-3-4-4-4 dc from previous row *, repeat from *-* the entire round 4 more times (= 5 times in total).
Repeat 3rd ROUND 1 more time but finish with 1 sl st in first dc on round. Fasten off.
Work shawl collar with short rows over the 18-18-20-20-22-22 dc on right front piece as follows:
ROW 1 (= from mid front): 1 dc in every dc = 18-18-20-20-22-22 dc.
ROW 2 (= from shoulder): 6-6-6-6-6-6 sc, 2-2-2-2-3-3 hdc, 3-3-4-4-4-4 dc and 7-7-8-8-9-9 tr.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row until piece measures approx. 16-16-17-17-18-18 cm / 6¼-6¼-6¾-6¾-7-7 on the shortest. Work on left front piece as right front piece but mirrored. NOTE: Make sure that one side is finished with 1st row and the other side is finished with 2nd row.
Sew collar tog mid back and sew collar to neckline at the back of neck.
