See diagrams A.1-A.2.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with 3 ch.

3 DC TOG:
Work 3 dc into 1 dc as follows: * Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook) *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Work back and forth. Work 94-101-108-122-129-143 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Cotton Light. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next ch 5, * 1 dc in each of the next ch 6, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch remains, 1 dc in last ch = 80-86-92-104-110-122 dc. Then work as follows: 3 ch - READ CROCHET INFO, skip 1 dc (replaced by the 3 ch), A.1 (= 6 sts) 13-14-15-17-18-20 times in total, finish with 1 dc in last dc. Continue pattern like this. Eyelet holes in A.1 goes diagonally towards the left 2 sts on every row (seen from RS) until hole meets the one dc in left side of piece. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.z until finished measurements. Fasten off when piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''. Now work pattern as before over the middle 68-74-80-80-86-98 sts (= 6-6-6-12-12-12 sts in each side for armhole). When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'', adjust so that next row is from RS. Work over the first 20-23-24-24-24-31 sts (= shoulder) as follows: Work 1 dc in every dc and 2 dc in every ch-space = 20-23-24-24-24-31 dc. Work 2 rows with 1 dc in every dc.
Fasten off. Do the same on the other shoulder

FRONT PIECE:
Work as back piece but work A.2 instead of A.1, i.e. eyelet holes goes diagonally towards the right (seen from RS). Repeat A.x until finished measurements. When piece measures 45-47-48-50-51-53 cm / 17 3/4"-18½"-19"-19 3/4"-20"-21", adjust after a whole repetition of A.x dec for neck (next row is from WS) as follows: Work as before over the first 31-34-37-37-40-46 dc, work 3 dc TOG - see explanation above. Turn piece. Repeat this dec on every row toward mid-front 7-7-8-8-9-9 times in total = 20-23-24-24-25-31 sts remain for shoulder.
Then work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc and 2 dc in every ch-space. Work 2 rows with 1 dc in every dc. Fasten off. Do the same on the other shoulder

SLEEVE:
Work back and forth. Work 45-45-49-49-52-52 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Cotton Light. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5-5-7-7-5-5 ch, * 1 dc in each of the next ch 6, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1-1-3-3-1-1 ch remains, 1 dc in the last 1-1-3-3-1-1 ch = 38-38-42-42-44-44 dc. Work 1 dc in each of the first 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc, A.2 until 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc remain, (= 6-6-6-6-7-7 times in width), 1 dc in each of the last 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.x until finished measurements. When piece measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm / 4'', inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in first and last dc on row (= 2 dc inc). Repeat inc every 4½-4-4-3-3-2½ cm / 1 3/4"-1½"-1½"-1"-1"-7/8" 9-10-10-12-12-14 more times = 58-60-64-68-70-74 sts. Work the inc sts in pattern. NOTE: There is always 1 dc (or 3 ch = 1 dc) in each side of piece. Fasten off when piece measures 52-52-51-51-51-48 cm / 20½"-20½"-20"-20"-20"-19" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Work the shoulder seams tog from WS as follows through both layers: 1 sc in first dc, * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-*. Sew in sleeves. Work the under arm seams and side seams tog from WS as follows through both layers: * 1 sc in outer loop, ch 3, skip 1 row *, repeat from *-* until approx. 10 cm / 4'' remain on body for vent in each side. Fasten off.
