PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

CROCHET INFO:
At beginning of every round/row with double crochet begin with 1 chain stitch, this does not replace first double crochet. When working in the round, finish round with 1 slip stitch in chain stitch.
At beginning of every round/row with trebles replace first treble with 3 chain stitches. When working in the round, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch.
At beginning of every round/row with double trebles replace first double treble with 4 chain stitches. When working in the round, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 4th chain stitch.

3 DOUBLE TREBLES WORKED TOGETHER:
Work 3 double trebles together into 1 double treble as follows: Work 1 double treble but wait with last yarn over and pull through, work 1 more double treble the same way, work 1 more double treble but now pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook.

3 TRIPLE TREBLES WORKED TOGETHER:
Work 3 triple trebles together into 1 triple treble as follows: Work 1 triple treble but wait with last yarn over and pull through, work 1 more triple treble the same way, work 1 more triple treble but now pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook.

QUADRUPLE TREBLE:
Make 4 yarn overs on hook, get the yarn under chain space, * 1 yarn over on hook, pull yarn through the 2 first/next loops on hook *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 1 loop on hook.

3 QUADRUPLE TREBLES WORKED TOGETHER:
Work 3 quadruple trebles together into 1 quadruple treble as follows: Work 1 quadruple treble but wait with last yarn over and pull through, work 1 more quadruple treble the same way, work 1 more quadruple treble but now pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round from mid back on the back and outwards.
Work 6 chain stitches on hook size 4.5 mm with Cotton Light and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch.
Work in the round according to diagram A.1. After 2 round in A.1 continue as follows: Work A.2 1 time, repeat A.3 3 times in total, finish with A.4. Continue in the round like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When square is done, there are 54 double trebles along each side and 6 chain stitches in each corner. Square measures approx. 34 x 34 cm. Cut the yarn. Now READ CROCHET INFO and READ THE REST OF BODY BEFORE CONTINUING.

Begin in a corner, then work in the round as shown in A.5, i.e. * work A.5A 1 time, repeat A.5B until 4 stitches remain before next corner, work A.5C 1 time *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total. NOTE: Round marked with star in diagrams shows last round on square (A.2-A.4), this round has already been worked. To make the pattern fit with correct number of chain spaces and repetitions onwards, the rounds marked with arrow in diagrams must be adjusted to correct number of trebles as explained below.
Arrow-1: Adjust number of stitches to 74 trebles along each side including trebles in corners (i.e. work approx. 4 trebles around each chain space - number of stitches should be divisible by 10 + 14).
Arrow-2: Adjust to 94 trebles along each side including trebles in corners (i.e. work approx. 4 trebles around each chain space - number of stitches should be divisible by 10 + 14).
When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat the last 4 rounds in A.5 upwards. AT THE SAME TIME adjust number of stitches on every round with trebles so that number of stitches is divisible by 10 + 14 along each side (repetition increases with 2 treble groups in width every time it is repeated vertically - NOTE: With correct number of stitches every round after a round with trebles will be worked as follows (beginning from the corner): 1 double crochet + 6 chain stitches + 1 double crochet around chain space in corner, * 5 chain stitches, skip 4 trebles, 1 double crochet in next treble *, repeat from *-* until 4 trebles remain before corner, skip these 4 trebles, work 1 double crochet + 6 chain stitches + 1 double crochet around chain space in corner. Continue like this along all sides on square.

AT THE SAME TIME when square measures approx. 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm work armholes as follows: Work A.5 as before until first corner, work around chain space as before. Now work chain stitches until the middle of next side (i.e. in the middle between first and second corner) as follows: Work 1 chain stitch for every chain stitch/treble skipped. Then work pattern as before until the middle between 3rd and 4th corner. Now work chain stitches until 4th corner as follows: Work 1 chain stich for every chain stitch/treble skipped, work around chain space in corner and the rest of round as before. On next round work A.5 as before over all stitches again (i.e. adjust pattern over armholes so that row is correct).
Continue A.5 in the round until square measure approx. 72-74-76-78-80-82 cm x 72-74-76-78-80-82 cm (i.e. approx. 18 cm from armhole in all sizes) – adjust to finish after a round with treble and so that number of stitches is divisible by 10 + 6 (including trebles in the corners). Cut the yarn and insert 1 marker in piece (between first and second corner).

FRONT PIECE:
Begin from wrong side and work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE: Work front piece without increases. Work A.6 from first corner, i.e. work as follows:
A6A (= 1 stitch), repeat A.6B until 5 stitches remain on row and finish with A.6C (= 5 stitches). Continue pattern as shown in diagram and repeat A.6 until approx. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm have been worked back and forth from marker (finish after a row with chain spaces). Fasten off. Work the same way on the other side (i.e. work back and forth between third and fourth corner).

EDGE:
Begin from right side and work a round with chain space around the entire piece as follows: Work * 6 chain stitches, skip approx. 2½ cm, 1 double crochet around chain space/in next stitch *, repeat from *-* but in each corner work 1 double crochet, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve directly out from armhole on body. Work back and forth, top down and sew together when finished. Begin from wrong side mid under sleeve (begin on 3rd row in A.6 - i.e. on a row with small chain spaces). Work 1 slip stitch around first chain space, work A.6A 1 time, repeat A.6B 6-7-7-8-8-8 times in total and finish with A.6C 1 time. Continue A.6 back and forth (after next row there are 66-76-76-86-86-86 trebles on row). Then adjust so that there are 56-66-66-76-76-76 trebles on next row with trebles and finally 46-56-56-66-66-66 trebles on row. When sleeve measures approx. 21 cm in all sizes – finish after a row with trebles in pattern, work first a row with chain spaces the same way as on row after a treble row in A.6. Turn piece and work last row as follows: 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around first chain space, * 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from *-* the entire row, work 2 chain stitches and finish with 1 double crochet in last double crochet on row. Fasten off.
Work the other sleeve the same way in the other side of piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew underarm seams edge to edge in outermost loop of edge stitch - make sure to avoid a tight seam.
