You can also find step by step tutorials for the most common knitting and crochet techniques in the DROPS Lessons!

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1-A.8.

CROCHET TIP:
Ch-spaces will contract more than crochet pattern at the upper part of body. The jacket will thus be naturally rounded without dec in pattern.

BUTTONHOLES:
Measure from neck edge at the front and sew buttons on left band:

JACKET:
Worked in parts, top down and worked tog when finished.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work 54-66-79-92 ch with Cotton Merino on hook size 3 mm / C. Continue with 1 tr in 4th ch from hook = 2 tr. Continue to work as follows: 1 tr in each of the next 1-6-5-4 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 7-8-10-12 times in total = 45-56-67-78 tr.
(= 1ST ROW in diagrams A.4, A.5 and A.6).
Continue to work as follows:
ROW 2 (= WS): Work A.6, then work A.5 3-4-5-6 times in total, and finish with A.4. Turn piece.
ROW 3: Work A.6, then work A.5 3-4-5-6 times in total, and finish with A.4.
Continue back and forth with this pattern, AT THE SAME TIME inc for neck in right side of piece (seen from RS) from 6th row in diagram. When 8th row in diagram has been worked from WS, cut the yarn.
Then work 12 loose ch, before working as follows from RS (= 9th row): 1 tr in last tr on 8TH ROW. Continue with pattern according to diagram A.4, A.5 and A.6 as before. When piece measures 19-21-23-24 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-9"-9½", insert a marker for armhole in the side, AT THE SAME TIME when A.4, A.5 and A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.x until piece measures approx. 27-29-31-33 cm / 10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13". Adjust so that pattern is finished on a row with ch-spaces from WS. Then work ch-spaces with 5 ch in every space as follows from RS: Continue with 1ST ROW in A.Z. Repeat the 4 rows in A.Z until piece measures 51-55-57-61 cm / 10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13" in total – Read CROCHET TIP!
Work an edge as follows, beg from WS: Beg on 1st row in A.X. Work A.6, A.5 3-4-5-6 times in width, A.4. Continue back and forth until 2nd row in A.X with tr-groups has been worked (i.e. until 6th row in A.X has been worked). Piece measures approx. 56-58-62-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-24½"-26". Fasten off. Put piece aside and work right front piece.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Beg and work as left front piece but reversed. Adjust according to left front piece.

BACK PIECE:
First work right shoulder as follows:
Work 52-64-77-90 ch with Cotton Merino on hook size 3 mm / C. Cut the yarn and put piece aside.
Then work left shoulder as follows:
Work 54-66-79-92 ch with Cotton Merino on hook size 3 mm / C. Continue with 1 tr in 4th ch from hook = 2 tr. Continue to work as follows: 1 tr in each of the next 1-6-5-4 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 7-8-10-12 times in total = 45-56-67-78 tr for left shoulder.
Then work 43 LOOSE ch before continuing over right shoulder (i.e. the ch-row): Continue with 1 tr in the first 2 ch on row = 2 tr. Continue to work as follows: 1 tr in each of the next 1-6-5-4 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 7-8-10-12 times in total = 45-56-67-78 tr for right shoulder.
Turn piece (= WS), and work 1 tr in each of the 45-56-67-78 next tr, then work 1 tr in each of the next 43 ch, and finish with 1 tr in each of the next 45-56-67-78 tr = 133-155-177-199 tr. NOTE! This row is the 1st row in diagram A.1, A.2 and A.3.
On next row work as follows (= RS): A.1, then work A.2 11-13-15-17 times in total, and finish with A.3. Continue as follows. When piece measures 19-21-23-24 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-9"-9½", insert a marker each side to mark armholes, AT THE SAME TIME when A.1, A.2 and A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.Y until piece measures approx. 27-29-31-33 cm / 10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13". Adjust pattern according to front pieces. Then work ch-spaces with 5 ch in every space as follows from RS: Continue with 1ST ROW in A.Z. Repeat the 4 rows in A.Z until piece measures 51-55-57-61 cm / 10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13" in total – adjust according to front pieces.
Work an edge at the bottom of body as on front pieces. Fasten off. Put piece aside. Piece measures approx. 56-58-62-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-24½"-26". Sew shoulder seams on front pieces and back piece tog.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth from body and outwards.
ROW 1: Beg at one of the markers, and work ch-spaces along armhole as follows: * ch 5, skip approx. 1½ cm / ½'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* until there are 22-26-27-28 ch-spaces in total between the two markers.
Continue with pattern from 2nd row in diagram A.Z, AT THE SAME TIME at beg of the next 2 rows dec 1 ch-space in the side – See diagram A.7 for left side of sleeve, and A.8 for right side of sleeve. 20-24-25-26 ch-spaces remain. Repeat the same dec at beg of the next 2-4-4-4 rows = 18-20-21-22 ch-spaces remain. Continue with ch-spaces as before, AT THE SAME TIME dec as follows: for S/M dec 1 ch-space in each side of sleeve when piece measures 15 cm / 6'', and for sizes L - XL/XXL – XXXL dec 1 ch-space in each side of sleeve when piece measures 13-12-11 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4½" and 1 ch-space in each side when piece measures 19-18-15 cm / 7½"-7"-6" = 16-16-17-18 ch-spaces remain. Continue until sleeve measures 27-25-23-20 cm / 10½"-9 3/4"-9"-8" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), and adjust to finish on next to last row in A.Z (i.e. a row with whole ch-spaces in each side of piece). Then work an edge as follows: Beg on 1st row in A.X (= row with ch-spaces, and half ch-spaces in each side of piece) and work this pattern over all ch-spaces at the bottom of sleeve. Continue back and forth until 6th row in A.X has been worked (i.e. 2nd row in with tr-groups). Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Work underarm seams and side seams in one as follows: 1 sc in front piece, ch 3, 1 sc in back piece, * ch 3, skip approx. 1 cm / 3/8'', 1 sc in front piece, ch 3, skip 1 cm / 3/8'', 1 sc in back piece *, repeat from *-* and continue the same way for sleeve.

NECK EDGE AND BAND:
Then work an edge along the band and neck. Beg at the bottom on right front piece, and work as follows: Fasten yarn with one sc, * ch 3, skip 1 cm / 3/8'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* along right band, neck and left band.
Sew buttons on to the left band - see explanation above. Button through a hole in right front piece.
