PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Dec 1 repetition (= 1 dc + 3 ch) by not working ch, but work 2 dc into 1 dc as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round from mid back on the back. Work 6 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Big Delight and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Work according to diagram A.1, i.e. work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work ch 3, 13 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2: ch 5, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, * ch 2, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 2 ch = 12 dc + 2 ch.
ROUND 3: Now work the circle into a square, i.e. work as follows: Work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in first ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, * 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, 1 dc in next ch-space (= last 2 ch from previous round), 3 ch.
ROUND 4: Work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in first ch-space, * ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Repeat 4th round with inc, i.e. work 1 dc + 3 ch more between each corner on every round (= 4 inc per round) AT THE SAME TIME on every 6th round inc 1 dc + 3 ch extra on each side of each corner – see star in diagram (= 8 extra inc per round). Continue like this until square measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' x 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''.
Now work armhole as follows: Work as before until first corner, work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner. Now work ch until the middle of next side (i.e. in the middle between 1st and 2nd corner) as follows: Work 1 ch for every ch/dc skipped. Then work pattern as before until the middle between 3rd and 4th corner. Now work ch until beg of round as follows: Work 1 ch for every ch/dc skipped. On next round work pattern and inc as before over all sts, also in ch for armholes.
Continue like this until square measures 78-80-82-84-86-88 cmx 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' x 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' (i.e. 21 cm / 8 1/4'' in all sizes from armhole). Fasten off.

FRONT PIECE:
Now work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE! Work front piece without inc.
1st ROW: Work from first corner as follows: 3 dc in ch-space in the corner, * ch 3, 1 dc in ch-space *, repeat from *-* ending with 3 ch and 3 dc in the corner.
2nd ROW: Turn and work like this: 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, * 1 dc in the ch-space, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* ending with 1 dc in the last ch-space and 1 dc in each of the 3 dc.
3rd ROW: Turn and work like this: 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, * ch 3, 1 dc in the ch-space *, repeat from *-* and end with 3 ch and 1 dc in each of the last 3 dc.
Continue repeating 2nd and 3rd row.
Continue working like this until 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'' have been worked back and forth, fasten off. Repeat on the other side, now work back and forth from third to fourth corner. Finally work a round around the entire square, work pattern as before but in ch-space in each corner work 6 dc. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round, top down from armhole, beg from mid under sleeve from RS.
ROUND 1: Work 6 ch (= 1 dc + 3 ch), * 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 16-17-18-19-20-21 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.
ROUND 2: Work ch 5, * 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 16-17-18-19-20-21 times in total, work ch 1, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Repeat 1st and 2nd ROUND - AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 dc + 3 ch at beg of 4th-6th-6th-8th-8th-6th round by working 2 dc tog – READ DECREASE TIP – mid under sleeve. Repeat dec every 6th-6th-6th-4th-4th-4th round = 12-12-13-13-14-14 dc. Repeat round without dec until sleeve measures approx. 56 cm / 22'' in all sizes. Fasten off. Work another sleeve.
