PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows:
Work 1 dc in first ch-space but wait with last pull through, skip ch 3, work 1 dc in next ch-space but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round from mid back on the back. Work 6 ch with Paris on hook size 5 mm / H/8 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Work according to diagram A.1, i.e. work as follows:
ROUND 1: 5 ch (= 1 dc + 2 ch), * 1 dc in ring, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc with 2 ch between each.
ROUND 2: 1 sl st in first ch-space, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc in same ch-space, * ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 7 times in total, and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc-groups with 1 ch between each.
ROUND 3: ch 1, 1 sc in the middle dc in dc-group, * ch 3, 1 sc in ch before next dc-group, ch 3, 1 sc in the middle dc in next dc-group *, repeat from *-* 7 times in total, ch 3, 1 sc in last ch, 3 ch and 1 sl st in first sc at beg of round = 16 ch-spaces.
ROUND 4: Now work the circle into a square, i.e. work as follows: 1 sl st in first ch-space, 4 ch (= 1 tr), 1 tr + 3 ch + 2 tr in same ch-space (= corner), * (2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-space) repeat from (-) 3 times in total, ch 2, 2 tr + 3 ch + 2 tr in next ch-space (= corner) *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, repeat from (-) 3 times in total and finish with 2 ch and 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.
ROUND 5: Work sl sts until ch-space in the corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in same ch-space (= corner), * ch 5, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, skip 1 ch-space, in next ch-space (= corner) work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 5, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, skip last ch-space and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 6: Work sl sts until ch-space in the corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc),
2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in same ch-space (= corner), * (6 ch, 1 sc + 2 ch + sc in next ch-space), repeat from (-) until corner, ch 6, work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, repeat from (-) until the corner and finish with 6 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 7: Work sl sts until ch-space in the corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in same ch-space (= corner), * ch 1, (1 sc in 6-ch-space, 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc in 2-ch-space), repeat from (-) until one 6-ch-space remains before the corner, 1 sc in 6-ch-space, ch 1, 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 1, repeat from (-) until one 6-ch-space remains before the corner and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 8: Work sl sts until ch-space in the corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in same ch-space (= corner), * ch 2, 1 dc in first ch, (3 ch, 1 dc + 2 ch + 1 dc in ch-space in dc-group), repeat from (-) until corner, ch 3, 1 dc in ch before corner, ch 2, 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 2, 1 dc in first ch, repeat from (-) until corner, ch 3, 1 dc in last ch, 2 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 9: Work sl sts until ch-space in the corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in same ch-space (= corner), * ch 5, 1 dc in first ch-space, (5 ch, 1 dc in ch-space in dc-group), repeat from (-) until 1 ch-space remains before dc-group in the corner, ch 5, 1 dc in last ch-space before the corner, 5 ch and 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 5, 1 dc in first ch-space, repeat from (-) until 1 ch-space remains before the corner, ch 5, 1 dc in last ch-space, 5 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Repeat 6th to 9th round (4 rounds) outwards as shown in diagram.
Continue like this until square measures approx. 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 armholes 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 approx. 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm x 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. approx. 21 cm / 8 1/4'' in all sizes from armhole) - adjust to finish after 9th round (round with ch-spaces and dc's). Cut the yarn.

FRONT PIECE:
Beg from WS and work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE: Work front piece without inc. Work according to diagram A.2 from first corner, i.e. work as follows:
ROW 1: 3 ch (= 1 sc + 2 ch), 1 sc + 2 ch + 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 6, 1 sc + 2 ch + 1 sc in next ch-space*, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 2 ch and 1 sc in first ch-space in the corner, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= RS): 3 ch (= 1 dc), * 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc in ch-space between 2 sc, 1 sc in 6-ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 1 dc in 1st ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 3: 4 ch (= 1 dc + 1 ch), * 1 dc + 2 ch + 1 dc in ch-space in the middle of dc-group, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 dc-group remains before the corner, 1 dc + 2 ch + 1 dc in ch-space in last dc-group, finish with 1 ch and 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 4 (= RS): 5 ch (= 1 dc + 2 ch), * 1 dc in ch-space in dc-group, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 dc-group remains, 1 dc in ch-space in last dc-group, 2 ch and 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 5: 7 ch (= 1 sc + 6 ch), * 1 sc + 2 ch + 1 sc in 5-ch-space, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 1 sc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 6 (= RS): 6 ch (= 1 dc + 3 ch), * 1 sc in 6-ch-space, 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc in 2-ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 1 sc in last 6-ch-space, 3 ch and 1 dc in first ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 7: 4 ch (= 1 dc + 1 ch), 1 dc in same st, * ch 3, 1 dc + 2 ch + 1 dc in ch-space in the middle of next dc-group *, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 3 ch and 1 dc + 1 ch + 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
ROW 8 (= RS): 8 ch (= 1 dc + 5 ch), * 1 dc in ch-space in the middle of dc-group, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row and finish with 5 ch and 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
Repeat rows 1 to 8 outwards.
Continue like this until approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'' have been worked back and forth, fasten off (adjust after 1st or 5th row in pattern). Repeat on the other side, now work back and forth from third to fourth corner.

EDGE:
Finally work a round around the entire piece with 2nd or 6th row in pattern but in ch-space in each corner work 6 dc. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work back and forward and sew togheter at the end. Sleeve is worked straight out of armhole of the body, top down.

Beg mid under armhole, from RS.
1 sc in first st, then work ch-space as on 4th or 8th row in A.2. Work so that there are 12-13-14-15-15-16 ch-spaces around armhole. Then continue with pattern according to diagram A.2. Work pattern like this until sleeve measures 26 cm / 10 1/4''. Now work according to A.3. On every row with arrow work 2 dc tog into 1 dc mid front of sleeve (i.e. dec 1 ch-space on every round with arrow) - READ DECREASE TIP. The dotted line shows mid front of sleeve. Otherwise continue the pattern as before. Dec on every 4th row a total of 4 times.
Then work according to diagram A.2 until sleeve measures 56 cm / 22'' in all sizes. Fasten off. Repeat in the other side.
