LEFT FRONT PIECE - ALL SIZES:

SLEEVE (worked back and forth):
Ch 46-48-53 loosely (includes 4 ch to turn with) on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Nepal.

ROW 4: Work 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr in every ch-space = 37-39-43 tr.
Repeat row 2-4 a total of 3 times. Piece measures approx. 18 cm / 7''. Then work tr on all rows until finished measurements, while at the same time inc as follows:
SIZE S/M:
* Inc 1 tr in one side by working 2 tr in next to last tr. On next row inc 1 tr in the other side the same way. Inc 1 more time the same way in each side, then work 1 row without inc *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times = 12 inc = 49 tr.
SIZE L/XL + XXL/XXXL:
* Inc 1 tr in one side by working 2 tr in next to last tr. On next row inc 1 tr in the other side the same way *, repeat from *-* a total of 8 times = 16 inc = 55-59 tr.
ALL SIZES:
Continue to work until piece measures 49 cm / 19 1/4'' in all sizes.
Now dec on every row in each side for sleeve cap – SEE DECREASE TIP 2: 3 tr 1 time, 2 tr 3 times and 3 tr 1 time = 25-31-35 tr remain at the top. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve seams tog edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
Work 1 round around the entire body and at bottom of sleeves as follows: * ch 5, 1 dc in first ch, skip 1 st, fasten with 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch.
