----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Crochet in dc from shoulders towards bottom edge. Beg with yoke, then crochet sleeves from the top towards sleeve edges, and then body piece, back and forth from mid front in fan patterns.

YOKE:
Ch 66-71-71 (76-76) LOOSE with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Baby Merino.
ROW 1 (= WS): Crochet 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of following 3 ch*, repeat *-* until 2-3-3 (4-4) ch remains, skip 1 ch and then 1 dc in each of 1-2-2 (3-3) last ch = 48-52-52 (56-56) dc on row (includes 4 dc each side towards mid front for front band), turn piece.
Now insert 4 markers in piece as follows (from RS):
SIZE 1/3 MONTHS: marker A between 11th and 12 dc, marker B between 17th and 18th dc, marker C between 31st and 32nd dc, and marker D between 37th and 38th dc.
SIZE 6/9 + 12/18 MONTHS: marker A between 12th and 13th dc, marker B between 18th and 19th dc, marker C between 34th and 35th dc, and marker D between 40th and 41st dc.
SIZE 2 + 3/4 YEARS: marker A between 13th and 14th dc, marker B between 19th and 20th dc, marker C between 37th and 38th dc, and marker D between 43rd and 44th dc.
Let the markers follow the piece as you go along.
Now continue as follows - See CROCHET INFO AND REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Crochet 1 dc in each dc, AT THE SAME TIME on first row inc 4 dc for raglan by each marker – See INCREASING TIP-1! Repeat the inc on every row a total of 4-5-7 (8-10) times – remember BUTTONHOLES on right front band. Now inc 2 dc by each marker on every row a total of 6-6-5 (5-4) times = 160-180-204 (224-248) dc on row. There are now 11-12-13 (14-15) rows on piece and piece measures approx 11-12-13 (14-15) cm / 4 3/8''-4¾''-5 1/8'' (5½''-6'') from shoulder (piece will measure approx 9-10-11 (12-13) cm / 3½"-4"-4 3/8" (4 3/4"-5 1/8") from neckline). Cut the thread.

SLEEVE:
Now measure piece from here! Crochet 1 dc in each dc back and forth on the 34-38-44 (48-54) dc between marker A and B. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3 cm / 1 1/8'' dec 1 dc each side – See DECREASING TIP. Repeat the dec each side on every 3-4-2 (2-2) cm / 1 1/8"-1½"-3/4" (3/4"-3/4") a total of 3-3-6 (7-10) times = 28-32-32 (34-34) dc. Continue with 1 dc in each dc.
When sleeve measures 12-14-15 (20-24) cm / 4 3/4"-5½"-6" (8"-9½") crochet cuff with Fan Pattern as follows:
ROW 1: * ch 2, skip approx 1 to 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* so that you end up with 11-11-11 (13-13) ch-loops.
ROW 2: Crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, ch 3, * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in next ch-loop, 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-*, turn piece.
ROW 3: ch 3, * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in the middle of the dc-group (i.e. in ch-loop at the top of fan), 1 dc in dc from previous row *, repeat from *-*, turn piece.
Repeat row 3 one more time, cut the thread and crochet the other sleeve in the same way between marker C and D.

BODY PIECE:
Continue in Fan Pattern back and forth from mid front as follows:
ROW 1: crochet 1 dc in each of the 25-28-31 (34-37) dc on left front piece to marker A, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-4-5 (5-6) dc evenly (do not inc on front band) – See INCREASING TIP-2 = 29-32-36 (39-43) dc, crochet 1 dc in each of the 42-48-54 (60-66) dc on back piece from marker B to marker C, AT THE SAME TIME inc 8-8-10 (10-12) dc evenly = 50-56-64 (70-78) dc and crochet 1 dc in each of the 25-28-31 (34-37) dc on right front piece from marker D, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-4-5 (5-6) dc evenly = 29-32-36 (39-43) dc = 108-120-136 (148-164) dc in total on row, turn piece.

ROW 2: ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc (= front band), ch 3, skip 2 dc, * 1 sc in next dc, ch 3, skip approx 2 dc (skip 3 dc occasionally) *, repeat from *-* so that you end up with 30-34-38 (42-46) ch-loops and 6 or 7 dc remain on row, ch 3 and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 4 dc (= front band). There are now 31-35-39 (43-47) ch-loops with 4 dc each side for front band, turn piece.

ROW 3: ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, skip first ch-loop, * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in next ch-loop, 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* until 2 ch-loops remain, crochet 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in next ch-loop and finish with 1 dc in each of the 4 dc on front band = 15-17-19 (21-23) fans with 4 dc each side towards mid front for front bands, turn piece.

ROW 4: ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in the middle of the next dc-group (i.e. in ch-loop at the top of fan), 1 dc in dc from previous row *, repeat from *-* until 1 dc-group remain, 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in the middle of this dc-group and finish with 1 dc in each of the 4 dc on front band, turn piece.
Repeat row 4 until piece measures approx 21-23-24 (26-28) cm / 8 1/4"-9"-9½" (10 1/4"-11").

CROCHET NEXT ROW AS FOLLOWS:
ch 4, 1 tr in each of the next 3 dc, * 4 tr + ch 2 + 4 tr in the middle of next dc-group, 1 tr in dc from previous row *, repeat from *-* until 1 dc-group remain, 4 tr + ch 2 + 4 tr in the middle of this dc-group and finish with 1 tr in each of the 4 dc on front band, turn piece.
Repeat this row until piece measures approx 26-28-31 (33-36) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13"-14 1/4") from shoulder. Cut and fasten threads.
