Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* until 0-4-3-2-1-0 ch remain, 1 dc in each of the last 0-4-3-2-1-0 ch = 112-116-120-124-128-132 dc - READ CROCHET INFO. Work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 28 dc evenly (i.e. inc 1 dc after approx. every 4th dc) – READ INCREASE TIP = 140-144-148-152-156-160 dc. Insert 12 markers in the piece as follows: Work 17-18-19-20-21-22 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1-0-0-2-2-1 dc evenly, insert first marker, * work 4 dc, insert next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 20 dc, insert next marker, * work 4 dc, insert next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 34-36-38-40-42-44 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 2-0-0-4-4-2 dc evenly, insert next marker, * work 4 dc, insert next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 20 dc, insert next marker, * work 4 dc, insert next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 17-18-19-20-21-22 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1-0-0-2-2-1 dc evenly = 144-144-148-160-164-164 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! On next row from RS, inc as follows: Inc 1 dc on each side of every marker (= 24 dc inc), repeat inc on every row from RS 1-4-5-7-8-10 times in total, then inc before every marker (= 12 dc inc), repeat inc on every row from RS 9-6-6-4-4-3 times in total = 276-312-340-376-404-440 dc. Piece measures approx. 18-18-20-20-22-23 cm / 7"-7"-8"-8"-8 3/4"-9".
Work next row as follows: 36-43-48-54-59-66 dc (= front piece), work 12 ch (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts = under sleeve), skip 66-70-74-80-84-88 dc from previous row (= sleeve), work 72-86-96-108-118-132 dc (= back piece), work 12 ch (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts = under sleeve), skip 66-70-74-80-84-88 dc from previous row and work 36-43-48-54-59-66 dc (= front piece) = 168-196-216-240-260-288 dc/ch (= 84-98-108-120-130-144 dc/ch on back piece and 42-49-54-60-65-72 dc/ch on each front piece). Insert 1 marker in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
