Pattern: See diagrams M.1 and M.2.

Crochet info: At the beg of each row replace the first dc with 3 ch. At the end of row crochet the last dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row.

Measuring tip: All measurement should be made when piece is lying flat. Because of the pattern the garment and the sleeves will be approx 5 cm [2”] longer than the measurements in the measurement chart.

Back piece: Crochet 55-62-70-77-85-92 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on crochet hook size 5 mm [US H/8].
Crochet first row as follows: 1 dc in the 4th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch and crochet 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch*, repeat from *-* a total of 10-11-13-14-16-17 times and finish with 1 dc in each of the remaining 1-3-1-3-1-3 ch = 43-49-55-61-67-73 dc on row. Read Crochet info! Now crochet 3 rows with 1 dc in each dc and continue with chart M.1 (you’ve already crochet the first row, so begin with row 2) = 14-16-18-20-24 ch-loops. Crochet 5 vertical repeats of M.1 (= 15 rows with ch-loops) – piece measures approx 24 cm [9½”].
Read all of the following section before continuing!
Now increase for sleeves as follows: Loosely crochet 27-24-21-18-27-24 ch out from one side, cut the thread and loosely crochet 1 sl st and 28-25-22-19-28-25 ch (includes 1 ch to turn with) out from the other side. Turn the piece and crochet 1 sc in each of the 27-24-21-18-27-24 ch, 3 sc in each ch-loop from M.1 (crochet 4 sc in the last ch-loop from M.1) and 1 sc in each of the 27-24-21-18-27-24 ch = 97-97-97-97-121-121 sc. Now crochet M.2 on the first 3 sc, M.2B on the next 84-84-84-84-108-108 sc and M.2C on the last 10 sc = 8-8-8-8-10-10 horizontal repeats of M.2. Continue in M.2 – repeat pattern from 3rd row. Crochet 4-4-5-5-6-6 vertical repeats of M.2 and now bind off for neckline as follows: crochet 1 more repeat of M.2 but only on the outermost 3-3-3-3-4-4 repeats each side. Cut the thread.

Crochet 5 vertical repeats of M.1 (= 15 rows with ch-loops) – piece measures approx 24 cm [9½’’].

Crochet 3-3-4-4-5-5 vertical repeats of M.1 and bind off for neckline as follows: crochet 2 more repeats of M.2 but only on the outermost 3-3-3-3-4-4 repeats at side.
