BACK PIECE:
Work 61-63-68-73-78 ch with Paris on hook size 6 mm. Turn and work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, continue with 1 tr in each of the next 2-4-4-4-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 48-50-54-58-62 tr - READ CROCHET INFO! Continue with tr upwards on all rows.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When piece measures 15 cm, dec 1 tr in each side by working the second and third tr and the 2 next to last tr tog – SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 5-5-6-6-7 cm 3 more times = 40-42-46-50-54 tr. When piece measures 33-36-39-42-45 cm, dec for armholes in each side as follows: Work sl sts over the first 2-2-3-4-5 tr, then work tr until 2-2-3-4-5 tr remain, turn piece. Continue with tr, there are now 36-38-40-42-44 tr on row.
Continue to work until piece measures approx. 47-51-55-59-63 cm. Now work 1 row with tr only over the outermost 12-13-13-14-14 tr in each side for shoulder (the middle 12-12-14-14-16 tr = neck). Fasten off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work 34-36-38-41-43 ch with Paris on hook size 6 mm. Turn and work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, continue with 1 tr in each of the next 5-2-4-2-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 27-28-30-32-34 tr.
Continue with tr upwards on all rows (the 3 outermost tr towards mid front = band). When piece measures 15 cm, beg dec in the side as on back piece. When dec are done, 23-24-26-28-30 tr remain on row. When piece measures 33-36-39-42-45 cm, the outermost 2-2-3-4-5 tr towards the side are no longer worked. Continue with tr over the remaining 21-22-23-24-25 tr. When piece measures 43-47-50-54-57 cm, the outermost 7-7-8-8-9 tr towards mid front are no longer worked. Then dec 1 tr towards mid front on the next 2 rows by working the 2 next to last tr towards mid front tog = 12-13-13-14-14 tr remain on shoulder. Fasten off when piece measures 48-52-56-60-64 cm.

Continue with PATTERN as follows - also see explanation above and diagram A.1: Diagram a over the first 6 dc, diagram b 3-3-3-4-4 times and diagram c over the last 5 dc – beg with row marked with arrow. When 5 rows of diagram have been worked, piece measures approx. 8 cm. Continue with tr as follows: 3 ch (= 1 tr), * 1 tr at the top of first tr-group, 3 tr in 3-ch-space, 1 tr in dc *, repeat from *-* the entire row but finish with 3 tr in last 3-ch-space (do not work 1 tr in last dc) = 25-25-25-30-30 tr. Continue with 1 tr in every tr upwards. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm, inc 1 tr in each side by working 2 tr in second and next to last tr. Repeat inc every 2nd-2nd-2nd-3rd-3rd row 3-4-5-4-5 more times = 33-35-37-40-42 tr.
When piece measures 26-30-34-37-41 cm, beg dec for sleeve cap. Work sl sts over the first 3 tr, then work tr until 3 tr remain, turn piece. Work 3 ch, then work the next 3 tr tog – SEE DECREASE TIP! Work tr until 4 tr remain, work the next 3 tr tog, then 1 tr in last tr. Continue like this by working the 3 next to last tr on every row tog until piece measures 33-37-41-45-49 cm, fasten off.

Continue pattern until hood measures approx. 28-29-30-31-32 cm. Fasten off and sew the hood tog at the top.

BAND:
Work an edge around the opening on jacket, beg at the bottom on right front piece, work up and around the hood and down along left front piece. Work with Paris on hook size 6 mm: Work approx. 181-191-201-211-221 dc, no of sts should be divisible by 5 + 11. Turn piece and continue with PATTERN according to diagram A.1: A.1a over the first 6 dc, A.1b until 5 dc remain and A.1c over the last dc – beg on row marked with arrow. Fasten off when A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically.
