CROCHET INFO:
Replace first sc at beg of every sc row with ch 1, finish row with 1 sc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row.
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with ch 3, finish row with 1 dc in ch from beg of previous row.

TEXTURE ROWS:
* 1 row sc (worked from WS), 1 row dc (worked from RS) *, repeat from *-* (1 row sc + 1 row dc = 1 texture row).

STRIPES:
Work entire suit in stripes as follows: * 1 row sc from WS with off white and then 1 row dc from RS with off white, 1 row sc from WS with light blue gray and then 1 row dc from RS with light blue gray *, repeat from *-*.

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

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

SUIT:
Read US/UK above! The piece is worked top down. Worked back and forth from mid front.

YOKE:
Ch 37-41-45-45 (49-49) LOOSELY on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with light blue gray.
Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in every ch the entire row = 36-40-44-44 (48-48) sc.
Turn piece and work 1 row with sc back from WS while AT THE SAME TIME inc 8 sc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 44-48-52-52 (56-56) sc on row.
Now insert 4 markers in piece for raglan as follows (beg mid front – NOTE: Do NOT work while inserting markers):
Skip 6-7-8-8 (9-9) sc (= left front piece), insert 1 marker in next sc, skip 8 sc (= sleeve), insert 1 marker in next sc, skip 12-14-16-16 (18-18) sc (= back piece), insert 1 marker in next sc, skip 8 sc (= sleeve) and insert last marker in next sc (there are now 6-7-8-8 (9-9) sc on right front piece after last marker).

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Work next row as follows from RS:
Work 1 dc in every sc but in every sc with marker work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc = 56-60-64-64 (68-68) dc on row.
Then work TEXTURE ROWS and STRIPES – see explanation above (work back and forth with 1 sc/dc in every st from previous row but on every row with sc from WS work 2 ch over the 2 ch from previous row in raglan lines).
AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row from RS (i.e. row with dc) inc for raglan as follows: Work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc in every ch-space in every raglan line (= 16 dc inc on row - NOTE: Work in both ch-spaces). Repeat inc on every row from RS 3-4-4-5 (5-6) more times (= 4-5-5-6 (6-7) times in total) = 120-140-144-160 (164-180) sts. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
After last inc for raglan work 1 row with sc from WS as before.
Work next row as follows from RS:
Work 1 dc in each of the first 16-19-20-22 (23-25) dc (= left front piece), skip the next 28-32-32-36 (36-40) sc (= sleeve), ch 4-4-4-6 (6-8), work 1 dc in each of the next 32-38-40-44 (46-50) sc (= back piece), skip the next 28-32-32-36 (36-40) sc (= sleeve), ch 4-4-4-6 (6-8) and work 1 dc in each of the last 16-19-20-22 (23-25) sc (= right front piece).
Then finish body and sleeves separately.

BODY:
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work 1st row from WS – work 1 sc in every dc from previous row and 1 sc in each of the 4-4-4-6 (6-8) ch under each armhole = 72-84-88-100 (104-116) sc on row.
Continue back and forth with texture rows and stripes as before – remember CROCHET INFO! AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row (= dc from RS), inc 4-0-2-2 (4-6) dc evenly = 76-84-90-102 (108-122) dc.
When piece measures approx. 24-29-34-39 (44-48) cm / 9½”-11½”-13½”-15¼” (17¼”-19”) from neck (i.e. approx. 27-32-37-42 (47-51) cm / 10½”-12½”-14½”-16½” (18½”-20”) from shoulder) – make sure that last row is 1 row with off white and dc from RS, finish opening for band mid front. Insert a marker in each side. Continue back and forth as before.
When piece measures 27-32-38-43 (49-53) cm / 10½”-12½”-15”-17” (19¼”-21”) from neck (and 30-35-41-46 (52-56) cm / 11¾”-13¾”-16”-18” (20½”-22”) from shoulder), divide for legs and finish each leg separately.

LEG:
Insert 1 marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Continue with texture rows and stripes back and forth over the first 38-42-45-51 (54-61) sts on row (i.e. over half of sts).
When leg measures 2 cm / 3/4’’ from marker, dec 1 sc/dc in each side - READ DECREASE TIP.
Repeat dec every 2-2-3-3½ (3½-3½) cm / 3/4”-3/4”-1 1/8”-1¼” (1¼”-1¼”) 4-4-4-4 (5-7) more times (= 5-5-5-5 (6-8) times in total) = 28-32-35-41 (42-45) sts.
When leg measures 11-14-17-20 (25-30) cm / 4½”-5½”-6¾”-8” (9¾”-11¾”) from marker, switch to light blue gray and work sc back and forth for 4 cm / 1½’’. Fasten off.
Leg measures approx. 15-18-21-24 (29-34) cm / 6”-7”-8¼”-9½” (11½”-13½”) and entire suit measures approx. 45-53-62-70 (81-90) cm / 17¾”-21”-24½”-27½” (32”-35½”) from shoulder.
Work the other leg the same way.

SLEEVE:
= 28-32-32-36 (36-40) sts. Insert 1 marker here – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Work first row as follows from WS (continue stripes as before):
Ch 2-2-2-3 (3-4), work 1 sc in every st and work 4-4-4-5 (5-6) ch. Turn piece, work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, work 1 dc in each of the next 0-0-0-1 (1-2) ch, 1 dc in every sc from previous row and 1 dc in each of the 2-2-2-3 (3-4) ch from beg of previous row = 32-36-36-42 (42-48) sts on row.
Then work texture rows and stripes back and forth as before. AT THE SAME TIME when sleeve measures 2 cm / 3/4’’ from marker, dec 1 st in each side - READ DECREASE TIP.
Repeat dec every 2-2-2½-2 (2-2) cm / 3/4”-3/4”-7/8”-3/4” (3/4”-3/4”), 3-4-4-7 (7-9) more times (= 4-5-5-8 (8-10) times in total) = 24-26-26-26 (26-28) sts.
When sleeve measures 9-11-13-15 (19-24) cm / 3½”-4½”-5”-6” (7½”-9½”) from marker, switch to light blue gray. Work sc back and forth for 4 cm / 1½’’, fasten off.
Sleeve measures 13-15-17-19 (23-28) cm / 5”-6”-6¾”-7½” (9”-11”) from marker.
Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve seams tog edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts. Sew the openings under the sleeves. If desired fold up the edge at the bottom of sleeves.
Sew the opening mid front from markers where band ends and down to dividing for legs - sew in front loop of outermost st.

LEFT BAND:
Beg from WS at the bottom on left front piece with light blue gray and work 1 sc in dc at the edge on the off white stripe, * work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc in next dc (i.e. in dc at the edge on light blue gray stripe), 1 sc in next dc (i.e. in dc at the edge on off white stripe) *, repeat from *-* up along left front piece to neck and finish with 1 sl st at the edge on corner by neck.
Turn piece and work as follows back from RS:
ch 3 (= 1 dc), then work 1 dc between every st and 1 dc in ch-space in every dc-group.
Fasten off.
Fasten band at the bottom by dividing for legs.

RIGHT BAND AND NECK EDGE:
Work as left band but beg from RS at the bottom on right front piece, work as left band up to neck but instead of finishing with 1 sl st in the corner by neck, continue edge around the neck as follows:
Work 1 sc in every st along the neck until 3 sts remain before raglan line, skip these 3 sts and work 4 dc in st in raglan line, skip the next 3 sts and continue with 1 sc in every st until 3 sts remain before next raglan line, skip these 3 sts and work 4 dc in st in next raglan line.
Continue like this around the neck and finish with 1 sl st at the edge on row. Turn piece and work 2nd row as on left band. Fasten off.

MORE ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band. Begin with 1 button in the upper light blue gray stripe, then place 1 button in every other light blue gray stripe.
Button through hole on the inside of "fan" on band.
