CROCHET INFO:

PATTERN:
M.1: Work the pattern back and forth. Start every row with ch 1, 1 sc in 1st ch on row, * ch 1, 1 sc in next ch * = 1 repetition of M.1. Repeat from *-*, finish with ch 1 and 1 sc in last sc on row, turn piece. See diagram M.1.
M.2: Work the pattern in the round. See diagram M.2.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 2 sc as follows: Work M.1 until 2 sc remain (= no of sc to be dec) on row, finish row with ch 1 and 1 sc in next ch, turn piece = 2 sc dec at the end of row.
Decrease 1 sc as follows: Work M.1 until 1 sc remains (= no of sc to be dec) on row, finish row with ch 1 and 1 sc in last ch, turn piece = 1 sc dec at the end of row.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 repetition of M.1 in each side of piece as follows: Work 2 repetitions of M.1 in first and last ch on row = 2 new sc.
Inc 1 repetition of M.1 on each side of marker as follows: Work 2 repetitions of M.1 in ch on both sides of marker = 2 new sc.

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

FRONT AND BACK PIECE:
Work front and back piece back and forth in one, with opening in the left side. Start below the chest and work the top upwards. Ch 210-232-254-282-316 (= 209-231-253-281-315 ch + 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran.
Work first row (= RS) as follows: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * ch 1, skip ch 1, 1 sc in next ch *. Repeat from *-* the entire row, finish with ch 1 and 1 sc in last ch = 105-116-127-141-158 sc. Insert a marker from RS in ch after the 53rd-58th-64th-71st-79th sc (front piece is to the right of the marker = 53-58-64-71-79 sc), turn piece. NOTE: Move the marker upwards when working. On next row, work chart M.1 - See explanation above, turn piece. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work like this until piece measures 5-5-5-6-7 cm / 2"-2"-2"-2 3/8"-2 3/4". On next row from RS, inc 4 repetitions of M.1 as follows: Inc 1 repetition of M.1 in each side of piece and inc 1 repetition of M.1 on both sides of marker (= 4 new sc on row) - Read INCREASE TIP.
Repeat inc when piece measures 10-10-10-12-14 cm / 4"-4"-4"-4 3/4"-5½" = 113-124-135-149-166 sc (front piece = 57-62-68-75-83 sc). Continue until piece measures 15-16-17-18-19 cm / 6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4"-7"-7½". On next row from WS, continue as follows: Work M.1 until 2 sc remain on row, finish with 1 ch and 1 sc in next ch, turn piece (= 1st dec of 2 sc on front piece - Read Decrease tip). There are now 55-60-66-73-81 sc to the right of the marker.
Then start the armhole, and finish left and right side of front piece separately.

LEFT SIDE OF FRONT PIECE:
Work the first row (= RS) as follows: ch 1, 1 sc in next ch on row, work 23-25-28-32-35 repetitions of M.1, turn piece = 24-26-29-33-36 sc on row. Work next row (= WS) as follows: ch 1, 1 sc in 1st ch on row, work M.1 until 2 sc remain on row, finish with ch 1 and 1 sc in next ch (= 2 sc dec), turn piece = 22-24-27-31-34 sc on row.
Dec 2 sc at the end of row like this on 3-3-3-3-3 more rows = 16-18-21-25-28 sc. Then dec 1 sc at the end of row - Read Decrease tip - until 6-6-7-9-10 sc remain on row. Continue to work M.1 until piece measures 34-36-38-40-42 cm / 13 3/8"-14 1/4"-15"-15 3/4"-16½" from armhole (= shoulder strap). Fasten off.

RIGHT SIDE OF FRONT PIECE:

Then work 1 sc in every ch along the edge of back and front piece, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc = 209-231-253-281-315 sc on the round, then work in the round.
Work next round as follows: ch 3, work dc in every sc - while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 220-240-260-280-320 dc, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Work next round as follows: ch 1, 1 sc in 1st dc, * ch 3, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Finish round with ch 3 and 1 sl st in 1st sc. Then work M.2 in the round - See diagram, beg of round is marked with an arrow. Continue until M.2 has been worked 2 times vertically. Then work 1st round in M.2 (round marked with arrow) one more time, fasten off.
