Not sure which size you should choose? Then it might help you to know that the model in the picture is approx. 5 ft 7 in and uses size S or M. If you are making a sweater, cardigan, dress or similar garment, you will find a graphic with the measurements of the finished garment (in cm) at the bottom of the pattern.

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
PATTERN: See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 dc around next ch-space but wait with last pull through, work next dc around next ch-space (do not work 3 ch between dc), on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

CROCHET TIP (applies to sleeve):
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next ch-space (= first ch-space on next round). NOTE: Insert 1 marker at the beg of round between last ch and first dc on the next round, move the marker upwards. NOTE: MAKE SURE NOT TO DISPLACE THE MARKER.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Worked in the round from the middle and outwards.

Work 4 ch with Cotton Merino on hook size 4 mm / G/6 and form a ring with 1 sl st.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 6 repetitions in width) NOTE: A.x shows how every round beg and end, and is in addition to pattern. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When entire A.1 has been worked vertically (= 132 dc), continue as follows: Work * A.2 (= 11 dc), A.3 (= 11 dc) *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total. Work up to and with arrow in diagram - see arrow for your size, there are now 228-252-264 sts on round. Work next round as follows: Continue to work over the first 34-36-38 sts, work 36-40-44 ch, and skip the next 36-40-44 sts (= armhole), work until 70-76-82 sts remain, work 36-40-44 ch and skip the next 36-40-44 sts (= armhole), continue to work over the last 34-36-38 sts. On next round continue according to pattern, work pattern as in diagram around ch-spaces in each side. When A.2 and A.3 have been worked, there are 312 dc on round. Continue with A.4 (= 39 repetitions on round). First round in A.4 shows last round in A.2/A.3, do not work this round. Continue to work as follows: Work * A.5 (= 26 dc), A.6 (= 26 dc) *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total. When A.5/A.6 have been worked, there are 600 sts on round (150 dc with 3 ch between each). Finish size S/M here.

Size M/L -XXL/XXXL: Work 2-4 more rounds as last round in A.5/A.6 = 162-174 dc with 3 ch between.

ALL SIZES:
Piece measures approx. 46-49-52 cm / 18"-19 1/4"-20½" from middle (92-98-104 cm / 36 1/4"-38½"-41" in total).

FRONT PIECES:
Work back and forth in the one side with short rows. Cut the yarn, skip the first 13-16-19 dc on round, then work over the next 49 dc + ch-spaces as follows (insert a marker here):
Work ch 3, skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc around next ch-space, 3 ch (these 2 ch-spaces are no longer worked), 1 dc around next ch-space, work pattern as before until 2 ch-spaces remain (i.e. ch-spaces between dc, do not work around these 2 ch-spaces anymore), turn piece. Continue the short rows like this, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc + 3 sts in the middle ch-space on every row (work 1 dc + 3 ch + 1 dc in this space). Continue with inc and dec on every row until piece measures 15 cm / 6'' from marker.

Skip 26-32-38 dc, then work short rows over the next 49 dc (13-16-19 dc remain on round). Work the same way as in the other side.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire circle as follows: 1 sc around first ch-space, * ch 3, 1 sc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

SLEEVES:
Worked in the round, top down. Beg mid under one armhole, work 1 sc around first ch-space, 6 ch (= 1 dc + 3 ch), skip first dc and work 1 dc around next ch-space, * ch 3, 1 dc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round (work 1 dc + 3 ch around dc in corners), finish round with 1 dc around first ch 6, then continue to work in the round without finishing it – READ CROCHET TIP = 21-23-25 dc + 21-23-25 ch-spaces.

Continue with 1 dc + 3 ch around every space. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 ch-space before marker - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 4½ cm / 1 3/4" 7 more times, dec alternately before and after marker = 13-15-17 dc + 13-15-17 ch-spaces. Continue until piece measures 42-43-44 cm / 16½"-17"-17 1/4".

CROCHET EDGE SLEEVES:
Crochet an edge around the sleeves as follows: 1 sc around first ch-space, * ch 3, 1 sc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Diagram

= Work 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st
= ch 1
= 1 dc around st
= 1 dc in dc
= Work 3 dc into 1 dc as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work 2 dc more the same way (= 4 loops on hook) but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.
= Work 2 dc into 1 dc as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.
= beg round with ch 3, and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round
= Work sl sts until first ch/ch-space. Replace first dc on this round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
= work armholes after this round
