REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! On next row from RS, inc as follows: Inc 1 dc on each side of every marker (= 24 dc inc), repeat inc on every row from RS 3-3-4-6-7-9 times in total, then inc before every marker (= 12 dc inc), repeat inc on every row from RS 4-4-4-2-2-0 times in total = 260-276-300-328-360-384 dc.

On next row work as follows: 41-44-48-53-59-63 dc (front piece), 8 ch (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 dc from previous row (to be used for sleeve later), 70-76-84-94-106-114 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1-1-3-1-1-3 dc evenly (back piece), 8 ch (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 dc from previous row (to be used for sleeve later) and 41-44-48-53-59-63 dc (front piece) = 169-181-199-217-241-259 dc/ch. Continue to work as follows: A.4 (= 6 dc band), A.1, A.2 24-26-29-32-36-39 times in total in width, A.3, finish with A.5 (= 6 dc band).

Work the first 7 row of A.z. On 8th row in A.z (= dc-row) inc 6 dc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 175-187-205-223-247-265 dc. Continue to work A.z as before but now work A.2 25-27-30-33-37-40 times in width. When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.y over A.z 1-2-2-3-3-3 times in total vertically.

Continue to work A.z as before but now work A.2 7-7-8-8-9-10 times in width. When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.y over A.z. When A.y has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.x over A.y. On last round in A.x dec 6 dc evenly = 49-49-55-55-61-67 dc. Then work A.z over A.x. A.2 is now worked 6-6-7-7-8-9 times in width. On 8th round dec 6 dc evenly = 43-43-49-49-55-61 dc. When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.y over A.z. Then work A.x over A.y. On last round in A.x dec 0-0-0-0-6-6 dc evenly = 43-43-49-49-49-55 dc. Then work the first 5 rounds of A.z. A.2 is now worked 5-5-6-6-6-7 times in width. Fasten off.
