Work first row as follows from WS: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook - READ CROCHET INFO, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-* until 0-0-1-1-0-0 ch remains and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 0-0-1-1-0-0 ch = 100-100-110-110-118-118 sc (includes 4 sc in each side towards mid front for band).
Work 1 row with 1 sc in every st from previous row. Work 1 row sc from WS while inc 24-24-22-22-22-22 sc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 124-124-132-132-140-140 sc on row – NOTE: Do not inc over the outermost 4 sc in each side.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING AND REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work next row as follows from RS: Work A.1 over the first 17-17-19-19-21-21 sc (the first 4 sts at beg of row = band), work 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc (= raglan inc), work A.2 over the next 6 sts (i.e. 1 sc in first sc, ch 6, skip 4 sc, 1 sc in next sc) (= left front piece), work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sc, 2 sc in next sc (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 6 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 1 sc in each of the next 26-26-30-30-34-34 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc (= back piece), A.2 over the next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sc, 2 sc in next sc (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 6 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 1 sc in each of the last 17-17-19-19-21-21 sc (= right front piece, the last 4 sc at the end of row = band), turn piece – NOTE: Count inc on this row with total no of raglan inc.
Continue back and forth with A.1 over sleeves, front pieces and back piece (i.e. 2 rows dc, 2 rows sc) and A.2 in each transition between body and sleeves (when 1st-5th row have been worked 1 time, repeat 2nd-5th row). AT THE SAME TIME inc for raglan every row as follows - NOTE: Inc differently on body and sleeves:

RAGLAN INC ON FRONT AND BACK PIECE:
Inc 2 sts before/after A.2 on front and back piece by working 2 dc/sc in each of the last 2 sc/dc before/after A.2 on front and back piece.
Repeat inc with 2 dc before/after A.2 (= 8 sts inc) on every row 3-6-6-11-13-18 times in total (includes first raglan inc).
Then inc 1 st before/after A.2 by working 2 dc/sc in sc/dc before/after A.2 on front and back piece. Repeat inc with 1 st before/after A.2 (= 4 sts inc) on every row 16-15-17-13-13-10 times in total.

RAGLAN INC ON SLEEVES:
Inc 1 st after/before A.2 in each side on sleeves by working 2 dc/sc in dc/sc before/after A.2 on sleeves.
Repeat inc with 1 st on every row 19-21-23-24-26-28 times in total (includes first raglan inc).

TRANSITION FROM A.2 TO SC/DC:
AT THE SAME TIME on last row with inc work 6 sc/dc over A.2 instead of A.2 in every transition between body and sleeves (adjust according to pattern A.1).

After last inc, there are 288-316-340-368-400-436 sts on row.
Work next row as follows from RS: Work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the first 44-49-53-59-65-72 sts (= left front piece), skip the next 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts (= sleeve), work 12 ch, work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the next 80-90-98-110-122-136 sts (= back piece), skip the next 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts (= sleeve), work 12 ch and work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the last 44-49-53-59-65-72 sts (= right front piece) = 192-212-228-252-276-304 sts on row.
Then finish body and sleeves separately.

BODY:
Insert 1 marker on row – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work 1 row sc/dc as before with 1 sc/dc in every st and 12 sc/dc around ch-space under each sleeve AT THE SAME TIME inc 22-20-22-22-22-24 sts evenly (do not inc over the outermost 4 sts in each side (= bands)) = 214-232-250-274-298-328 sts on row.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.3 with 4 sc/dc in each side for bands, i.e. work as follows (1st row = sc from RS – if next row is from WS, cut the yarn and beg from RS):

ROW 1: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts (= band), * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, ch 6, skip 4 sts *, repeat from *-* until 6 sc remain on row and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 6 sc (the last 4 sts = band), turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5 sts, * ch 2, 1 sc around ch-space, ch 2, 1 dc in each of the next 2 sc *, repeat from *-* until 4 sts remain on row and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 4 sts, turn piece.
ROW 3: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, ch 3, 1 sl st in sc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* until 6 dc remain on row and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 6 dc, turn piece.
ROW 4: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the first 6 dc, * ch 4, 1 sc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* until 4 dc remain on row, 1 sc in each of the last 4 dc, turn piece.
ROW 5: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 6 sc remain on row, finish with 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc.
Continue pattern like this according to diagram A.3 (repeat rows 2-5 in diagram). When piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-37-38 cm / 13½"-13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14½"-14½"-15" from under sleeve - finish after 4th or 5th row in pattern, work 1 row with dc, i.e. work 1 dc in every sc from previous row and 4 dc around every ch-space, turn piece and work 1 row sc with 1 sc in every dc. Cut the yarn, piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
= 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts. Work 6 loose ch, work 1 sc/dc in every st on sleeve as before and finish row with 8 ch, turn piece. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), work 1 dc in each of the next ch 4, 1 dc in every dc from previous row AT THE SAME TIME dec 12 dc evenly and 1 dc in each of the 6 ch from beg of previous row = 60-64-68-70-74-78 dc on row. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Work 1 sc in every sc from ch-row. NOTE: Do not work in ch not worked on first row = 100-100-110-110-118-118 sc.
