See diagrams A.1 to A.7. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

The piece is worked top down.

Right shoulder:
Work 69-92-114-137 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with Safran.
ROW 1 (= WS): Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5-3-5-3 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 55-73-91-109 dc. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Now work according to diagram, i.e. work as follows:
ROW 1-6: (1st row = RS): Work A.1, A.2, A.3 2-3-4-5 times in total, A.4, A.5. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROW 7 (= RS): Work last row in A.1-A.4 as before but finish with A.6 over A.5.
Continue until A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, in A.1-A.4 repeat rows in A.x. Cut the yarn.

Work left shoulder as right shoulder, work A.7 over A.1. On last row in A.7 (= from WS) work 35 ch for neck at the end of row, fasten with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of last row on right shoulder. Cut the yarn.
Now work over all sts, beg from RS as follows: A.1, A.2, A.3 9-10-11-12 times in total, A.4, finish with A.5. Continue like this. When piece measures approx. 24-26-28-30 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4" – adjust after 7th row, sleeves are done.
Then work as follows, beg from WS: Skip 3 ch-space, beg by working in next sc as follows: A.5, A.4, A.3 7-8-9-10 times in total, A.2, finish with A.1 (do not work the last 3 ch-spaces). Continue like this until piece measures approx. 48-52-56-58 cm / 19"-20½"-22"-22 3/4", adjust after 5th row in diagram. Fasten off.

Work left shoulder in ch-row from cast on edge (work in same ch as dc's, i.e. in the 55-73-91-109 dc) from left front piece as follows:
ROW 1-6: (1st row = RS): Work A.1, A.2, A.3 2-3-4-5 times in total, A.4, A.5. Cut the yarn.
Work right shoulder as left shoulder but in right front piece - NOTE! Instead of cutting the yarn work 71 ch for neck and fasten with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of last row on left shoulder. Cut the yarn.
Now work over all sts the same way as on front piece.

Sew side and underarm seams in one.

Work an edge around the neck, beg from one shoulder as follows:
ROUND 1: Work * 1 sc, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* along the neck with approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' between every sc, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 2: ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in first sc from beg of 1st round. Fasten off.
Work an edge at the bottom along front and back piece the same way, beg from the side. Work an edge around the sleeve the same way, beg from mid under sleeve.
