PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagram A.4 shows how round beg and ends.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Replace first sc at beg of every sc round with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same dc.

TOP:
The piece is worked top down. NOTE: It is important to keep the crochet gauge vertically so that the measurements on yoke will be correct.

YOKE:
Work 108-108-117-117-124-124 ch on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Muskat and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work first round as follows: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc) - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 dc in each of the next 3-3-5-5-5-5 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 94-94-102-102-108-108 dc. Work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc and inc 18-18-22-22-28-40 dc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 112-112-124-124-136-148 dc. Work next round and insert 8 markers in the piece as follows: A.4 shows how round beg and ends. Insert 1st marker at beg of round, work A.2 over the first 4 dc, insert 2nd marker, A.1 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times in width), insert 3rd marker, A.2 over the next 4 dc, insert 4th marker, work A.1 over the next 36-36-42-42-48-54 dc (= 6-6-7-7-8-9 times in width), insert 5th marker, A.2 over the next 4 dc, insert 6th marker, A.1 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times in width), insert 7th marker, A.2 over the next 4 dc, insert 8th marker, A.1 over the last 36-36-42-42-48-54 dc (= 6-6-7-7-8-9 times in width). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

SIZE XXL-XXXL:
On 5th round (round with dc) in A.1 inc evenly as follows: Between 2nd and 3rd marker and 6th and 7th marker: Inc 6-6 dc. 12-12 dc have been inc in total on round (= 18-18 dc between 2nd and 3rd marker and 6th and 7th marker). Repeat A.1 3-3 times between 2nd and 3rd marker and between 6th and 7th marker:

ALL SIZES:
On 6th round (round with dc) in A.1 inc evenly as follows:
Between 2nd and 3rd marker and 6th and 7th marker: Inc 0-0-6-6-6-6 dc (= 12-12-18-18-24-24 dc between these markers).
Between 4th and 5th marker and 8th and 1st marker: Inc 0-6-6-6-6-6 dc (= 36-42-48-48-54-60 dc between each of these markers). Then repeat diagram A.1 2-2-3-3-4-4 times between 2nd and 3rd marker, 6-7-8-8-9-10 times between 4th and 5th marker, 2-2-3-3-4-4 times between 6th and 7th marker and 6-7-8-8-9-10 times between 8th and 1st marker. Work A.2 as before.

SIZE XL-XXL-XXXL:
On 8th round (round with dc) in A.1 inc evenly as follows:
Between 4th and 5th marker and 8th and 1st marker: Inc 6-6-6 dc (= 54-60-66 dc between each of these markers).
12-12-12 dc have been inc in total on round. Repeat A.1 9-10-11 times between 4th and 5th marker and between 8th and 1st marker. Repeat inc on 10th round in A.1 (= 60-66-72 dc between each of these markers). Repeat diagram A.1 10-11-12 times between 4th and 5th marker and between 8th and 1st marker.

ALL SIZES:
On last round in A.2 insert 1 new marker in the middle of each A.2 (i.e. 18 dc on each side of marker in A.2 = 4 markers). Remove the old markers (= 4 markers remain in piece). Sts between markers are for sleeves (= 48-48-54-54-60-60 dc on each sleeve). When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 240-252-276-300-324-336 dc on round. Yoke is now done in size S.

SIZE M-L-XL-XXL-XXXL:
Continue with pattern A.1 as before but over dc in A.2 (= 36 dc) work A.3 2 times in total in width (marker is in the middle of these repetitions).

SIZE M-XL-XXL-XXXL:
Work 1 sl st in 5th ch, ch 3, work 1 dc in each of the next 3-5-5-5 ch, work A.1a as before until ch under 2nd sleeve, 1 dc in each of the 8-10-10-10 ch under sleeve, work A.1a as before the rest of round. Work the 8-10-10-10 sts under each sleeve as 1st st in A.1a.

Then repeat A.1a 26-28-30-35-37-39 times in width. Repeat A.1a vertically. When piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', adjust so that next round is with dc, dec 6 dc evenly = 150-162-174-204-216-228 dc. Now repeat A.1a 25-27-29-34-36-38 times in width.

When piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm / 8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾'' from marker – adjust so that next round is with dc, inc 6 dc evenly. Repeat inc every 2-2-1½-1½-1½-1½ cm / 3/4"-3/4"-½"-½"-½"-½ 5-5-7-7-7-7 more times = 186-198-222-246-264-276 dc. Repeat A.1a 1 more in width on every inc. When all inc are done, repeat A.1a 31-33-37-41-44-46 times in width. Work until piece measures 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm / 14¼''-14½''-15''-14 1/4''-15¾''-16 1/8'' from marker, adjust to finish nicely according to pattern. Fasten off.
