----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE JACKET:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and light sea green and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue working according to diagram A.1. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been completed, the circle measures approx. 26 cm in diameter and there are 27 double treble crochet groups on the round.

Work according to A.2, on the first round in A.2 increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round, increase in the same way as on round 6 in A.1, i.e. increase 1 chain-space as follows: work 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group, 9 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain stitch between the double treble crochet groups, 9 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group = 36 chain-spaces. Complete A.2 1 time in height.

Sizes L/XL-XXL/XXXL: When A.2 has been completed 1 time in height, continue working according to A.3, increase in the same way as in A.2 – work 1 treble crochet group more between each increase, every time you increase = 45-45 double treble crochet groups.

ALL SIZES: = 36-45-45 double treble crochet groups. The next round is worked in the same way as round 1 in A.3, AT THE SAME TIME work the armholes as follows:
1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group, work 33-36-39 loose chain stitches, skip 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group (you have now worked one armhole), * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* in total 14-20-18 times, work 33-36-39 loose chain stitches, skip 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group (you have now worked one more armhole), * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* to the end of the round, but finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet at the beginning of the round (instead of 1 double crochet around the next chain-space).

The next round is worked in the same way as round 2 in A.3 as follows: work in the same way as before with 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space, around each chain-space for the armhole work 7-8-9 treble crochet groups, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 treble crochet groups evenly along the round, increase 1 treble crochet group by working 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet + 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around 1 chain-space = 45-54-54 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around the chain-space in the middle of each treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet group = 45-54-54 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.

Continue to work according to A.3, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round each time you work round 1 as follows:
ROUND 1: Work slip stitches to the middle of the first chain-space (in the middle of a double treble crochet group), 1 double crochet, * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the next chain-space in the middle of a double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* the whole round AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round = 54-63-63 chain-spaces (finish the round with 6 chain stitches and 1 triple treble crochet in the first double crochet at the beginning of the round).
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space the complete round = 54-63-63 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around each chain-space in the middle of the treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet group the whole round = 54-63-63 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.

Repeat 1st-3rd round 5-5-6 times more, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 chain-spaces every time you work round 1 = 99-108-117 double treble crochet groups.

So that the jacket is given an oval shape, continue by working back and forth over only the bottom 62-67-72 double treble crochet groups, do not work over the middle 37-41-45 double treble crochet groups at the top of the neck.

Start from the right side and repeat rows 1-3 in A.3 as before a total of 2 times (i.e. the back piece gets 6 more rows in height), to get a neat transition every time you turn the piece, work as shown in A.4 and A.5, AT THE SAME TIME increase 7 chain-spaces every time you work row 1 (= a total of 113-122-131 double treble crochet groups on the round including the double treble crochet groups towards the neck).

To finish, work 2 rounds with chain-spaces around the whole jacket (from the right side) as follows – work with powder:
ROUND 1: * 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of one double treble crochet group, 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain-space (between 2 double treble crochet groups *, repeat from *-* the whole round.
ROUND 2: *4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in double crochet *, repeat from *-*- the complete round and finish with 1 double crochet in the last double crochet. Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVES:
Crochet up 66-72-78 treble crochet around the armhole (approx. 5 treble crochet in each double treble crochet group and approx. 33-36-39 treble crochet around the chain-space – start mid under the sleeve).

The next round is worked as follows:
* 1 treble crochet in the first/ next treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 treble crochet *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 33-36-39 treble crochet + 33-36-39 chain stitches.
Continue working as follows:
ROUND 1: * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 treble crochet/chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the next treble crochet/chain stitch *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 11-12-13 chain-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space the whole round = 11-12-13 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around each chain-space in the middle of the treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet the whole round = 11-12-13 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.
ROUND 4: * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 11-12-13 chain-spaces, but decrease at the same time 1 chain-space on the round mid under the sleeve as follows: 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next-to-last double treble crochet group on the round, 6 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group to be skipped, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group = 10-11-12 double treble crochet groups.
Repeat rounds 2-4 and decrease at the same time 1 chain-space every 3rd round so that for each repeat in height there will be 1 double treble crochet group/chain-space less on the round. When there are 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups/chain-spaces on the round, continue working without decreases until the sleeve measures 34-34-35 cm, or to desired length, try the jacket on as you go. Cut and fasten the strand and repeat on the other sleeve.
