CROCHET TIP:
Beg every sc row with 1 ch and beg every dc row with 3 ch – these do NOT replace first sc/dc on row.

PATTERN:
ROW 1 (= WS): Work 1 dc in every sc.
ROW 2 (= RS): Work 1 sc in every dc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc/dc by working 2 sts tog.
Work 2 sc tog as follows: Insert hook in first st and pull yarn through, insert hook in next st and pull yarn through, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
Work 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc in first st but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc in next st but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked back and forth from mid front.
Work 140-153-162 (171-185) ch on hook size 3 mm with light steel blue. READ CROCHET TIP!
Work back as follows (= RS): 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 sc in each of the next 3-7-7 (7-3) ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 8 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 124-136-144 (152-164) sc.
Continue with PATTERN - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
When piece measures 17-18-20 (22-25) cm / 6 3/4"-7"-8" (8 3/4"-9 3/4"), put piece aside – finish after 1 row with dc (= WS). Continue with sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work back and forth and sew tog mid under afterwards. Work 42-42-44 (46-49) ch on hook size 3 mm with light steel blue.
Work back as follows (= RS): 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 sc in each of the next 5-5-7 (9-5) ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 36-36-38 (40-42) sc.
Continue with PATTERN - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', inc 1 st in each side by working 2 sts in second and next to last st. Repeat inc every 2-2-2 (2-3) rows 5-7-8 (9-10) more times (= 6-8-9 (10-11) inc in total) = 48-52-56 (60-64) sts.
When piece measures 13-15-17 (21-25) cm / 5"-6"-6 3/4" (8 1/4"-9 3/4"), put piece aside – finish after 1 row with dc (= WS). Work another sleeve.

YOKE:
Work first row from RS as follows: 1 sc in each of the first 26-29-31 (33-36) sts on right front piece, skip the first 5 sts on one sleeve, then work 1 sc in each of the next 38-42-46 (50-54) sts on sleeve, skip 10 sts on body, work 1 sc in each of the next 52-58-62 (66-72) sts, skip the first 5 sts on next sleeve, work 1 sc in each of the next 38-42-46 (50-54) sts on sleeve, skip 10 sts on body and work 1 sc in each of the last 26-29-31 (33-36) sts = 180-200-216 (232-252) sts in total. Now insert 12-13-14 (14-14) markers in the piece as follows: First after 13-10-11 (12-9) sts, there should then be 14-15-15 (16-18) sts between markers, after last marker there are 13-10-10 (12-9) sts.
Continue with PATTERN as before - AT THE SAME TIME on next row (= dc) dec 1 st BEFORE all markers by working 2 dc tog - READ DECREASE TIP!
Repeat dec every 4 rows 1-1-2 (2-2) more times (= 2-2-3 (3-3) dec in total) - but next time dec AFTER all markers, then dec alternately before and after upwards.
Then dec every other row 5-5-4 (4-5) times and finally every row 2-3-3 (4-4) times. After all dec are done, 72-70-76 (78-84) sts remain.
Work 1 row while AT THE SAME TIME dec 16-11-14 (13-16) sts evenly = 56-59-62 (65-68) sts, fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Work 6 rows sc with off white at the bottom around each sleeve - beg from WS. Then sew sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

RIGHT BAND:
Work 3 rows with sc along right band with off white - beg from RS. On 2nd row (= WS) work 5-5-6 (6-6) buttonholes evenly. 1 buttonhole = ch 2, skip 2 sc. Top buttonhole should be after 1 sc from the top, there should then be approx. 5-5-5 (6-6) cm / 2"-2"-2" (2½"-2½") between each buttonhole.
On 3rd row work 2 sc over each of the 2 ch for buttonholes. Work 2 rows with sc, fasten off.

LEFT BAND:
Work 6 rows sc with off white as on right band but without buttonholes.

NECK EDGE:
Work 3 rows sc with off white - beg from WS.
Sew on buttons.

POCKET EDGE:
Ch 13-14-15 (16-17) loosely with off white on hook size 3 mm.
Turn and work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and then work 1 sc in every ch the entire row = 12-13-14 (15-16) sc in total. Then work 3-3-3 (4-4) more rows with sc, to make a total of 4-4-4 (5-5) rows, fasten off.
Work another pocket edge. Sew 1 pocket edge on to each front piece – approx. 6-7-8 (9-10) cm / 2½''-2¾''-3'' (3½''-4'') from bottom edge and approx. 4-4-5 (5-6) cm / 1½"-1½"-2" (2½"-2½") from mid front – sew neatly along bottom edge and in each side (there should be an opening at the top).
