3 DC TOG AT BEG OF ROUND:
3 ch, work next dc around same ch but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 dc around same ch but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.
3 DC TOG:
Work 1 dc around ch but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc around same ch, but wait the last pull through, work last dc around same ch but now pull last YO through all 4 sts on hook

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 dc but wait with last YO and pull through, work next dc but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook = 2 dc worked tog.

JACKET:
Work 4 ch on hook size 3,5 mm / C with Delight and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work according to diagram A.1, i.e. work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 4 ch (= 1 dc + 1 ch), * 1 dc in ch-ring, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 11 times, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 12 dc with 1 ch between every dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 2: 1 sl st around first ch, work 3 dc TOG AT BEG OF ROUND – see explanation above, * ch 3, 3 dc TOG around next ch – see explanation above *, repeat from *-* 11 times in total and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st at the top of first dc-group = 12 dc-groups with 3 ch between every dc-group.
ROUND 3: 1 sl st around first ch-space, ch 1, 1 sc around same ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc around next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc around next ch-space, ch 6, 1 sc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, but finish with 1 sl st in first sc at beg of round (instead of 1 sc around next ch-space).

Continue repeating 15th and 16th round until square measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 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 repeating15th and 16th round until no of ch-spaces between each corner is divisible with 3. Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: 1 sl st around ch-space in corner, 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc around same ch-space, * (work 3 dc around each of the first 3 ch-spaces, 1 ch), repeat from (-) until 3 ch-spaces remain before corner, work 3 dc around each of the next ch-spaces, in corner work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc around ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round (instead of 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in corner).
ROUNDS 2-4: Work as 11th-13th round (work 1 dc-group around every ch from previous round).
ROUNDS 5-18: Work as 15th and 16th round. Repeat these 2 rounds 7 times in total.
Repeat 18th round until square measures 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''8'' (i.e. 21 cm / 8 1/4'' in all sizes from armhole). Cut the yarn.

FRONT PIECES:
Now work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE: Work front piece without inc.
ROW 1: Work according to A.2 as follows: Work sl sts until the middle of first corner: ch 5,* skip 3 dc, 1 dc between 2 dc-groups, 2 ch *, repeat from *-*, skip 3 dc and finish with 1 dc around ch-space in second corner.
ROW 2: Turn and work as follows: ch 3, 2 dc around first ch-space, then work 3 dc around every ch-space, last time finish with 1 dc in 3rd ch at beg of previous row.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row for 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'', cut the yarn. 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.

SLEEVES:
Work around the armhole and down, work every round tog with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Insert 1 marker in piece, mid under sleeve. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Beg by working 81-84-87-93-96-99 dc evenly around the opening for sleeve, beg of row should be under sleeve.

Continue with A.2 - when piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' dec under sleeve as follows:
Dec as shown in A.3/A.4 – READ DECREASE TIP alternately on right and left side of marker. Dec like this every 4th round 10-11-11-6-6-7 times, then every other round 0-0-0-7-7-7 times = 51-51-54-54-57-57 dc. Work A.2 until sleeve measures approx. 47 cm / 18½'' in all sizes. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.
