There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.7.
A.1 shows beginning and end of every round, work A.2 5 times in total on round.
A.3 shows beginning and end of every round, work A.4 12 times in total on round.
Work A.5/A.6/A.7 in the round - A.x shows beginning and end of every round.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first treble at beginning of round with 3 chain stitches, finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.

CROCHET TIP (applies to sleeve):
After last double crochet on round work 6 chain stitches and continue on to next round with 1 double crochet around next chain space (= first chain space on next round). NOTE: Mark beginning of round with 1 marker thread between last chain stitch and first double crochet on next round, move the marker thread upwards. NOTE: BE CAREFUL NOT TO DISPLACE THE MARKER THREAD.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 double crochet around next chain space but wait with last pull through, work next double crochet around next chain space (do not work 6 chain stitches between double crochets), on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Chain 5 on hook size 4.5 mm with Paris and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch.
Then work as follows: Work A.1 (the middle of A.1 shows beginning and end of every round, i.e. work from middle of A.1), A.2 5 times in total, finish with the other half of A.1. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When A.1/A.2 have been worked vertically, there are 156-156-156 trebles on last round. Piece measures approx. 30 cm in diameter.

Then work as follows: Work A.3 (the middle of A.3 shows beginning and end of every round, i.e. work from middle of A.3), A.4 12 times in total, finish with the other half of A.3 - AT THE SAME TIME on last round increase 7 trebles evenly (increase by working 2 trebles in same treble) = 202 trebles on round. When A.3/A.4 have been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 40 cm in diameter. Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first 2 trebles, next round begin from here (i.e. mid back of neck). Now work differently in the different sizes.

ROUND 5: Work 1st round in A.5 = 84 chain spaces.
ROUND 6: Work 2nd round in A.5 while AT THE SAME TIME increasing 12 trebles evenly = 264 trebles.

ALL SIZES:
= 228-228-264 trebles.
Now work in the round according to A.5 (A.x shows how rounds begin and end), AT THE SAME TIME increase (increase on rounds with arrow) as follows:
ROUND 1 (no increase): = 76-76-88 chain spaces.
ROUND 2: Increase 33-33-33 trebles evenly (NOTE: increase in double crochets, not around chain spaces) = 261-261-297 trebles.
ROUND 3: Increase 15-15-15 trebles evenly = 276-276-312 trebles.
ROUND 4: Increase 18-18-18 trebles evenly = 294-294-330 trebles.
When A.5 has been worked vertically, circle measures approx. 29-29-33 cm from centre (= 58-58-66 cm in diameter).

Now work in the round according to diagram A.6 (A.x shows how rounds begin and end), AT THE SAME TIME increase (increase on round with arrow) as follows:
ROUND 1 (no increase): = 49-49-55 fans.

ROUND 1 (no increase): = 114-114-127 chain spaces.
ROUND 2 (no increase): = 114-114-127 chain spaces.
ROUND 3: Increase 20-20-20 chain spaces evenly (increase by working 1 treble, 2 chain stitches, 1 treble and 2 chain stitches around same chain space = 1 chain space increased) = 134-134-147 chain spaces.
ROUND 4 (no increase): = 402-402-441 trebles.
ROUND 5: Increase 15-15-15 trebles evenly = 417-417-456 trebles.
Repeat 1st and 2nd round in A.7 (without increases) = 139-139-152 chain spaces. In size S/M cut the yarn. Continue in size L-XXXL as follows:

SIZE L/XL - XXL/XXXL:
Repeat 2nd round in A.7 AT THE SAME TIME increase as follows:
ROUND 6: Increase 6-6 chain spaces evenly (increase by working 1 double crochet, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet and 2 chain stitches around same chain space = 1 chain space increased) = 145-158 chain spaces.
ROUND 7 (no increase): = 145-158 chain spaces.
ROUND 8: Increase 5-6 chain spaces evenly = 150-164 chain spaces.
ROUND 9 (no increase): = 150-164 chain spaces. Cut the yarn.
ALL SIZES:
= 139-150-164 chain spaces.
Continue working only over 39-42-45 chain spaces in each side – i.e. do not work over 30-33-37 chain spaces at the top by neck and 31-33-37 chain spaces at bottom of back. Continue with explanation under left front piece.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 39-42-45 chain spaces. Continue back and forth as follows:
ROW 1: Work slip stitches until middle of the first chain space, 1 double crochet, * work 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 double crochet around last chain space = 38-41-44 chain spaces.
Repeat 1st row 3-3-7 more times. 35-38-37 chain spaces remain at the edge of front piece. Cut the yarn.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work same way as on left front piece over 39-42-45 chain spaces in the right side. Cut the yarn.

FINISHING EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire circle as follows:
Repeat 3rd-5th round in A.7 (and A.x) with increases as follows:
ROUND 3 (no increase): I.e. around every chain space work 1 treble and 2 chain stitches = 147-158-180 chain spaces.
ROUND 4: Increase 15-27-18 trebles evenly = 456-501-558 trebles.
ROUND 5: Increase 12-27-18 trebles evenly = 468-528-576 trebles.
Now repeat 1st and 2nd round in A.6 (and A.x) as follows:
ROUND 1 (no increase): = 78-88-96 fans.
ROUND 2 (no increase): (39-44-48 repetitions of 13 trebles) = 507-572-624 trebles. Fasten off.
Circle measures approx. 51-59-63 cm from centre mid back (= 102-118-126 cm in diameter in height), and approx. 58-66-77 cm from centre out to the side (= 116-132-154 cm in diameter in width).

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round from armhole and down, begin mid under sleeve (= 64-70-76 trebles on armhole).
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET TIP! Work * 1 double crochet in treble, 6 chain stitches, skip approx. 4 trebles *, repeat from *-* around entire armhole, there should be 15-18-21 chain spaces around armhole.
Continue to work 6 chain stitches and 1 double crochet around every chain space. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 1 chain space before marker thread - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat decrease alternately on each side of marker thread every 4 cm 4-5-6 more times = 10-12-14 chain spaces.
When piece measures 38-39-40 cm, work next round as follows:
Work 3 chain stitches (= 1 treble), work 4 treble around every chain space, finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round = 40-48-56 trebles. Sleeve measures approx. 39-40-41 cm. Fasten off.

Work another sleeve the same way.
