The piece is worked top down. Worked back and forth from mid front. Work 111-116-121-131-136-146 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 4.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work next row as follows:
1 dc in 4th ch (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next ch 2, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* = 88-92-96-104-108-116 dc - READ CROCHET INFO. Insert 19-20-21-23-24-26 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker after 8th dc, then insert 18-19-20-22-23-25 markers 4 dc apart, after last marker there are 8 dc. Work back and forth with dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc at all markers as follows: Inc every other row 5-6-6-5-5-6 times, and every 4th row 2-2-2-3-3-3 times - READ INCREASE TIP = 221-252-264-288-300-350 dc. Work a row and inc 14-7-7-7-19-5 dc evenly (do not inc over the first and last 6 dc = band) = 235-259-271-295-319-355 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

On next round work as follows: 36-40-43-47-51-58 dc (front piece), 8 ch (under sleeve), skip 52-56-56-60-64-68 dc from previous row (to be used for sleeve later), 59-67-73-81-89-103 dc (back piece), 8 ch (under sleeve), skip 52-56-56-60-64-68 dc from previous row (to be used for sleeve later) and 36-40-43-47-51-58 dc (front piece). Insert a marker, now measure piece from here! Work 1 dc in every dc/ch AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-8-8-12-12-12 sts evenly – READ DECREASE TIP = 139-155-167-179-195-223 dc.

Continue to work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 6 dc (= band), A.1, A.2 30-34-37-40-44-51 repetitions in total in width, finish with A.3 and 1 dc in each of the last 6 dc. Continue pattern like this. When A.1-A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.4 vertically until finished measurements.

When piece measures 14-14-14-15-15-15 cm / 5½"-5½"-5½"-6"-6"-6" from marker, adjust so that next row is last row in A.4, inc 1 repetition of A.2 in 8th-9th-9th-10th-11th-13th repetition in ch-space as follows: Work ch 2, 1 sc in ch-space, ch 2, 1 dc in same ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in same ch-space. Work 14-16-19-20-22-25 repetitions of A.2, in next repetition of A.2 inc the same way. Then continue as before = 32-36-39-42-46-53 repetitions of A.2 in width. Fasten off when piece measures 34-34-36-35-37-37 cm / 13½"-13½"-14 1/4"-13 3/4"-14½"-14½" from marker, adjust to finish with next to last row in A.4, piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' in total.

Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve.
Continue to work as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 11-11-11-13-13-15 dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 dc (= 10-10-10-12-12-14 dc), A.1, A.2 8-9-9-9-10-10 times in width, A.3, work 1 dc in each of the last 10-10-10-12-12-14 dc. Continue with 1 dc in each of the 20-20-20-24-24-28 dc mid under sleeve and A.1-A.3 over sleeve. When A.1-A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.4 vertically until finished measurements. Continue this pattern AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 dc on each side of marker - Remember DECREASE TIP.
