INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same st.

DECREASE TIP (dec 1 dc):
Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dc dec.
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
Worked back and forth from mid front.
Work 189-204-219-242-264-287 ch on hook size 6 mm with Paris, turn.
ROW 1: 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 2 ch *, repeat from *-* until 4-4-4-3-4-3 ch remain, skip next ch and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 3-3-3-2-3-2 ch = 126-136-146-161-176-191 dc on row, turn piece.
ROW 2: 1 ch, then work 1 dc in every dc from previous row = 126-136-146-161-176-191 dc, turn piece.
ROW 3: Work as 2nd row.
ROW 4: Then work pattern according to diagram A.1, i.e. work 5 ch (= 1 dtr + 1 ch), * skip 4 dc, in next dc work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr *, repeat from *-* until 5 dc remain, skip 4 dc and finish with 1 ch and 1 dtr in last dc = 24-26-28-31-34-37 dtr-groups, turn piece.
ROW 5: 5 ch, in ch-loop in every dtr-group work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr, finish row with 1 ch and 1 dtr in 4th ch on beg of previous row = 24-26-28-31-34-37 dtr-groups, turn piece.

Repeat 5th row until piece measures approx. 16 cm. Work next row as follows: 4 ch (= 1 dtr), in ch-loop in the middle of every dtr-group work 2 dtr + 1 ch (instead of 2 ch) + 2 dtr, finish row with 1 dtr in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 24-26-28-31-34-37 dtr-groups, turn piece.
Work 1 ch, 1 dc in same st, then work 1 dc in every dtr the entire row, finish with 1 dc in 4th ch from beg of previous row, turn piece = 98-106-114-126-138-150 dc.
Continue to work as follows:
ROW 1: Work pattern according to diagram A.2, i.e. work 1 ch, then work 1 dc in every dc the entire row AT THE SAME TIME dec 18-18-18-18-14-14 dc evenly – READ DECREASE TIP = 80-88-96-108-124-136 dc, turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch (= 1 tr), then work 1 tr in every dc the entire row = 80-88-96-108-124-136 tr on row.
ROW 3-5: Work as 2nd row = 80-88-96-108-124-136 tr.
ROW 6: Work 1 dc in every tr AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts as follows: Size S + M + L + XL + XXL: Inc 5-9-5-5-5 dc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP. Size XXXL: Dec 3 sts evenly – READ DECREASE TIP = 85-97-101-113-129-133 dc, turn piece.
ROW 7: 1 ch, 1 dc in same st, then work 1 dc in every dc from previous row = 85-97-101-113-129-133 dc, turn piece.
ROW 8: 5 ch, * skip 3 dc, in next dc work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr *, repeat from *-* until 4 dc remain on row, skip 3 dc and finish with 1 ch and 1 dtr in last dc on row = 20-23-24-27-31-32 dtr-groups on row, turn piece.
ROW 9: Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 again, i.e. work 5 ch, in ch-loop in the middle of every dtr-group work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr, finish row with 1 ch and 1 dtr in 4th ch on beg of previous row = 20-23-24-27-31-32 dtr-group.
Repeat 9th row upwards.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm, divide for markers as follows: Insert 1 marker after 5-6-6-7-8-8 dtr-groups in from each side (= 10-11-12-13-15-16 dtr-groups between markers on back piece). Finish each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 10-11-12-13-15-16 dtr-groups. Continue back and forth with dtr-groups as shown in A.1. AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec for armholes in each side in size XXL + XXXL as follows: Dec 1 dtr-group on beg of row as shown in A.3, work as before until 1 dtr-group remains on row, finish row as shown in A.4 (do not dec in the other sizes) = 10-11-12-13-13-14 dtr-groups remain on row. Continue pattern back and forth until 1 row remains before piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm. Now work 1 row with dtr-groups only over the outermost 3-4-4-5-5-5 dtr-groups in the one side of piece: 5 ch, * in ch-loop in the middle of next dtr-group work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-5 times in total, finish with 1 dtr in last dtr in same dtr-group, turn piece.
Now work 1 row dc as follows: 1 ch, 1 dc in same st, * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dtr, 1 dc in ch-loop in the middle of dtr-group, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dtr *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-5 times in total, finish with 1 dc in last ch and 1 dc in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 18-23-23-28-28-28 dc on row. Cut and fasten the thread. Repeat on the other shoulder (i.e. do not work over the middle 4-3-4-3-3-4 dtr-groups = neck.)

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 5-6-6-7-8-8 dtr-groups. Continue back and forth with dtr-groups as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec for armhole in the side in size XXL + XXXL as shown in A.4 (do not dec in the other sizes) = 5-6-6-7-7-7 dtr-groups. Continue pattern back and forth until piece measures approx. 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm – adjust so that same no of rows with dtr-groups has been worked as on back piece. Now work 1 row dc as on back piece only over the outermost 3-4-4-5-5-5 dtr-groups on shoulder (i.e. do not work over the 2 dtr-groups towards the neck = collar) = 18-23-23-28-28-28 dc. Cut and fasten the thread. Insert 1 marker on the shoulder. Now work dtr-groups back and forth over collar as follows: 5 ch, in ch-loop in first dtr-group work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr, in ch-loop in next dtr-group work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr, work 1 ch and finish with 1 dtr in last dtr in same dtr-group. Continue back and forth like this until collar measures approx. 10-8-10-8-8-10 cm from marker on shoulder. Then work 1 row dc as follows: 1 ch, 1 dc in same st, 1 dc in next ch, 1 dc in each of the first 2 dtr, 1 dc in ch-loop in the middle of dtr-group, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dtr *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, finish with 1 dc in last ch and 1 dc in 4th ch from beg of previous row = 14 dc, cut the thread.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed. When dec for armhole in size XXL + XXXL, dec 1 dtr-group as shown in A.3.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. Sew collar tog mid back (sew edge to edge) and sew it on to neck line at the back of neck. Sew on buttons on right front piece – see picture. Button through the crochet edge explained below.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work a finishing edge around the entire opening on vest and around both armholes as follows: 1 dc in first st, * 5 ch, skip approx. 2½ cm, 1 dc in next st/loop *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 5 ch and 1 sl st in dc from beg of round.
