CROCHET INFO:
At beg of every row with sc work 1 ch to turn with. Ch does not replace first sc.
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with 3 ch.
Sleeve: When working in the round, finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

CROCHET 2 dc TOG (in dc):
Work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc more in same dc, but on last pull through, pull through all sts on hook.

CROCHET 2 dc TOG (AROUND CH):
Work 1 dc around the middle chin dc-group but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc more around same ch, but on last pull through, pull through all sts on hook.

DC-GROUP:
Work a dc-group around ch-space as follows: Work * 1 dc, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 2 more times around same ch-space, 1 dc around same ch-space.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in 1 sc/dc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc at beg and end of round as follows: Work 1 dc (= 3 ch at beg of 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 *, repeat from *-* when 3 dc remain on round = 1 st dec on each side of marker.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked top down. Worked back and forth from mid front.

YOKE:
Work 75-78-84-89-93-98 ch (includes 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 6 mm / J/10 with Air. Work next row as follows - READ CROCHET INFO:
ROW 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, work 1 sc in each of the next 1-4-2-7-3-8 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 sc in each of the next 7 ch *, repeat from *-* 8-8-9-9-10-10 more times = 65-68-73-78-81-86 sc.
ROW 2: Work 1 dc in each of the first 4 sc (= band), continue with 1 dc in every sc until 4 sc remain on row, AT THE SAME TIME inc 6-8-8-10-12-23 dc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP, 1 dc in each of the remaining 4 sc = 71-76-81-88-93-109 dc.
Now insert 8 markers in the piece for raglan increasing without working the sts. Insert 4 markers from each side of piece as follows: Insert a marker after 13-13-14-14-16-19 dc, insert next marker after 2 dc, then insert next marker after 9-11-12-14-14-17 dc, and finish with last marker after 2 dc. There are now 19-20-21-24-25-29 dc between the 2 middle markers towards mid back on jacket. Now continue with 1 dc in every dc, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc on right side of each of the 8 markers. Then inc alternately on right and left side of every marker (seen from RS). Repeat inc every row 9-9-11-12-13-16 more times, and every other row 2-3-2-2-2-0 times = 167-180-193-208-221-245 dc on row. Piece measures approx. 20-23-23-24-26-27 cm / 8"-9"-9"-9½"-10 1/4"-10½". REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
On next round work as follows: Work 25-27-29-31-34-38 dc (front piece), 8 ch (under sleeve), skip 38-40-42-45-47-50 dc from previous row (= sleeve), 41-46-51-56-59-69 dc (back piece), 8 ch (under sleeve), skip 38-40-42-45-47-50 dc from previous row (= sleeve) and 25-27-29-31-34-38 dc (front piece). Insert a marker, now measure piece from here!

BODY:
There are now 107-116-125-134-143-161 sts for body. Now measure the piece from here. Now continue with 1 dc in every dc/ch on row, turn and work next row in PATTERN - see explanation above, as follows:
ROW 1: Work 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc (= A.1), then work A.2 as follows: * Work 2 dc TOG (in dc) - see explanation above, ch 5, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 5, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12-13-14-16 more times, work 1 dc in each of the remaining dc (= A.3).
ROW 2: Work 1 sc in each of the first 4 dc, * work ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, work 1 dc-GROUP - see explanation above, around next ch-space, ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in the 2 dc worked tog *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12-13-14-16 more times, work 1 sc in each of the last 4 dc.
ROW 3: Work 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, * ch 2, 1 sc around next ch-space, ch 5, work 2 dc TOG (around ch) - see explanation above, ch 5, 1 sc around next ch-space after dc-group, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12-13-14-16 more times, 1 sc in each of the last 4 sc.
ROW 4: Work 1 dc in each of the first 4 sc, (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) around first ch-space, ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in the 2 dc worked tog, ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, * (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) around next ch-space, ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in the 2 dc worked tog, ch 3, skip 1 ch-space *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-13-15 more times, (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 ch) around last ch-space, 1 dc in each of the last 4 sc.
ROW 5: Work 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, * work 2 dc TOG (around ch), ch 5, work 1 sc around ch-space after dc-group, ch 3, 1 sc around next ch-space, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12-13-14-16 more times, 1 dc in each of the last 4 dc.
Continue like this and repeat A.X (= 2nd-5th row) back and forth until piece measures approx. 32 cm / 12½'' in all sizes - adjust to finish after 2nd or 4th row in A.1-A.3. Piece measures 56-60-60-62-64-66 cm / 22"-23½"-23½"-24½"-25 1/4"-26" in total.

SLEEVE:
Sleeve is worked in the round, top down. Insert a marker in the middle of the 8 ch worked under sleeve. Now measure the piece from here. Let marker follow in piece until finished measurements. Fasten yarn with 1 sl st in the 5th ch of the 8 ch worked in armhole on body. Work 3 ch (= 1 dc) continue with 1 dc in each of the next ch 3, 1 dc in each of the dc for sleeve and then 1 dc in the remaining 4 ch under sleeve = 46-48-50-53-55-58 dc - remember CROCHET INFO! Continue with 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 4 cm / 1½'' beg dec - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat the same dec every 3rd-2nd-2nd-2nd-2nd-1st round 8-9-10-10-11-12 more times = 28-28-28-31-31-32 dc remain. Fasten off when piece measures 46-44-44-43-42-40 cm / 18"-17 1/4"-17 1/4"-17"-16½"-15 3/4". Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Fasten the buttons on left front piece, the top button approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' from neck edge, fasten the remaining button approx. 8-8-9-9-9-10 cm / 3"-3"-3½"-3½"-3½"-4'' apart. Button between 2 dc on right front piece.
