Replace first tr at beg of round with ch 4, finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 with Big Delight and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work according to A.1. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
When A.1 has been worked, circle measures approx. 33 cm / 13'' in diameter and there are 27 tr-groups on round.

Size L/XL-XXL/XXXL: Work according to A.2, on first round in A.2 inc 9 ch-spaces evenly (inc the same way as on 6th round in A.1, inc 1 ch-space as follows: Work 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group, 9 ch, 1 sc around ch between tr-groups, 9 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group) = 36-36 ch-spaces. Work A.2 1 time vertically.

ALL SIZES: = 27-36-36 tr-groups. Work next round as round 1 in A.3, AT THE SAME TIME work armholes as follows:
1 sc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group, work 30-33-36 loose ch, skip 5-6-7 tr-groups, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group (armhole has been worked), * 12 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group *, repeat from *-* 8-14-12 times in total, work 30-33-36 loose ch, skip 5-6-7 tr-groups, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group (another armhole has been worked), * 12 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first sc at beg of round (instead of 1 sc around next ch-space).

Work next round as round 2 in A.3 as follows: Work the same way as before with 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space, around every ch-space for armhole work 6-7-8 dc-groups, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 dc-groups evenly on round, inc 1 dc-group by working 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc + 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around 1 ch-space = 36-45-45 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around ch-space in the middle of every dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group = 36-45-45 tr-groups with 1 ch between each.

Continue to work according to A.3, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces evenly every time 1st round is worked, as follows:
ROUND 1: Work sl sts until middle of first ch-space (in the middle of a tr-group), 1 sc, * 12 ch, 1 sc around next ch-space in the middle of a tr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces evenly on round = 45-54-54 ch-spaces (finish round with 6 ch and 1 dtr in first sc at beg of round).
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space the entire round = 45-54-54 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space in dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group the entire round = 45-54-54 tr-group with 1 ch between each.

Repeat 1st-3rd round 3-3-4 more times, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces every time 1st round is worked = 72-81-90 tr-group.

To get an oval shape on jacket work back and forth only over the bottom 47-54-61 tr-groups, do not work over the middle 25-27-29 tr-groups at the top of neck.

Beg from RS and repeat 1st-3rd row in A.3 as before 2 times in total (i.e. back is 6 rows longer vertically), to get a nice transition on every turn work as shown in A.4 and A.5, AT THE SAME TIME inc 7 ch-spaces every time 1st row is worked (= 86-95-104 tr-groups in total on round incl tr-groups towards the neck).
Finish with 1 round ch-spaces around the entire jacket (from RS) as follows: * ch 4, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of a tr-group, ch 4, 1 sc before next tr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round, fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work 60-66-72 dc around armhole (approx. 5 dc in every tr-group and approx. 30-33-36 dc around ch-space – beg mid under sleeve).

Work next round as follows:
* 1 dc in first/next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30-33-36 dc + 30-33-36 ch.
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: * ch 6, skip 5 sts, 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 10-11-12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space the entire round = 10-11-12 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space in dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group the entire round = 10-11-12 tr-group with 1 ch between each.
ROUND 4: * 12 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 10-11-12 ch-spaces but at the same time dec 1 ch-space on round mid under sleeve as follows: 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next to last tr-group on round, ch 6, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group to be skipped, ch 6, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group). On new round work dc-group mid under sleeve in dc between the 2 ch-spaces with 6 ch = 9-10-11 dc-groups.
Repeat 2nd-4th round and dec at the same time 1 ch-space every 3rd round so that there is 1 tr-group/ch-space less on round. When there are 5-6-7 tr-groups/ch-spaces on round, work without dec until piece measures 54-54-56 cm / 21 1/4"-21 1/4"-22", or desired measurements, try the jacket while working. Fasten off and repeat on the other sleeve.
