DECREASING TIP-1:
Dec 1 dc by crochet tog the 2 outermost dc as follows: Crochet 1 dc but wait with the last pull-through, crochet 1 dc and when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all 3 loops on hook.

DECREASING TIP-2 (sleeve cap):
Dec at beg of row by working sl sts on the no of dc to be dec.

SLEEVE:
First crochet 2 borders to be sewn to each side of squares.
BORDER: Crochet 7-9-9-9-11-11 ch with dark brown, work first row as follows: 1 dc in 4th ch, 1 dc in each of the next 3-5-5-5-7-7 ch = 5-7-7-7-9-9 dc (includes the first 3 ch = 1 dc). Turn and crochet 1 dc in each dc. Continue with 1 dc in each dc until piece measures 19 cm / 7½”, cut the thread. Make 2 borders.
Sew a border to each side of crochet squares, edge to edge.
Now crochet 1 dc in each dc and 15 dc on each square = a total of 40-44-44-44-48-48 dc. Continue back and forth with 1 dc in each dc, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 21 cm / 8¼” inc 1 dc each side by working 2 dc in the last but one dc, and repeat the inc on every 4-5-3-2-2-2 row a total of 6-5-7-9-9-10 times = 52-54-58-62-66-68 dc. When piece measures 48-47-46-45-44-43 cm / 19’’-18½’’-18’’-17¾’’-17¼’’-17’’ (less for the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder) dec on every row each side – SEE DECREASING TIP-2: 4 dc 1 time each side, then 2 dc each side until piece measures 54 cm / 21¼”, now dec 4 dc 1 time each side, and cut the thread. Sleeve measures approx 56 cm / 22’’.

FRONT BANDS: Crochet sc with dark brown and crochet hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 up along right front piece, round neck and down along left front piece – approx 16 sc per 10 cm / 4’’. Crochet 2 rows with dark brown, 1 row with light pink, 1 row with cerise, 2 rows with dark brown, 1 row with light beige and 2 rows with dark brown = a total of 9 rows – AT THE SAME TIME on row 6 (= WS) make 3 buttonholes on right front band – place the top one in transition between squares and dc rows and then approx 9 cm / 3½’’ between each. 1 buttonhole = 2 ch, skip 2 sc, on next row crochet 2 sc in ch-loop.
Crochet 1 row of dark brown sc along bottom edge of body piece and sleeves.
