PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagram A.4 shows the assembly.

CROCHET INFO:
At the beginning of each row with single crochets, replace the first single crochet with 1 chain stitch.
At the beginning of each row with double crochets, replace the first double crochet with 3 chain stitches.
At the beginning of each row with treble crochets, replace the first treble crochet with 4 chain stitches.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 double crochet in each side (= 2 double crochets increased on the row) as follows: 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there is 1 double crochet left, work 2 double crochets in the last double crochet (= 2 double crochets increased)
Increase 2 double crochets in each side (= 4 double crochets increased on the row) as follows: 3 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there is 1 double crochet left, work 3 double crochets in the last double crochet (= 4 double crochets increased)
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The top is worked back and forth in one piece and from the top down.

UPPER:
Work 56-61-61-66-66-71 chain stitches (including 1 chain stitch to turn) with hook size 2.5 mm/C and Safran. Work 1 single crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook (= 2 single crochets), work 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* 9-10-10-11-11-12 more times = 46-50-50-54-54-58 single crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Continue by working double crochets back and forth and increase in each side of the piece as follows:
Work 4 rows where you increase 1 double crochet in each side of the piece (= 2 double crochets increased on the row) – READ INCREASE TIP and CROCHET INFO = 54-58-58-62-62-66 double crochets.
Now increase as follows: * Work 1 row where you increase 2 double crochets in each side, work 2-2-2-5-4-12 rows where you increase 1 double crochet in each side *, repeat from *-* 5-6-6-3-4-1 more times = 102-114-114-118-122-122 double crochets on the row. The piece measures approx. 14-16-16-18-18-19 cm / 5"-6 1/4"-6 1/4"-7"-7"-7½''. Cut the strand. Turn the piece and work the lower part of the top as follows:

LOWER:
Work 68-73-86-99-117-137 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in each of the 102-114-114-118-122-122 double crochets from the upper part, finish with 70-75-87-101-119-139 chain stitches (including 3 chain stitches to turn).
Turn and work as follows: Work 1 double crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook (= 2 double crochets), 1 double crochet in the next 1-1-4-2-0-0 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* 12-13-15-18-22-26 more times, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 102-114-114-118-122-122 double crochets, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* 12-13-16-18-22-26 more times = 212-232-252-278-310-342 double crochets.
Continue working back and forth with 1 double crochet in each double crochet until the piece measures approx.4-4-6-7-8-9 cm / 1½"-1½"-2 1/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3½''. Then work 1 row where you adjust the number of stitches to 211-235-253-277-313-343 double crochets.
Now work pattern according to the diagram, starting from the right side as follows: (First row starting from the right side): A.1 over the first 4 double crochets, A.2 over the next 198-222-240-264-300-330 double crochets (= 33-37-40-44-50-55 repeats of 6 stitches), finish with A.3 over the last 9 double crochets. Continue in this way until the diagram has been completed in height. Cut and fasten the strand.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew 2 buttons on to the top of the right back piece. Place the first button approx. 1½ cm / ½'' in from the edge and the next approx. 4½ cm / 1 3/4'' in from the edge – see illustration with star. These are buttoned between two double crochets. The overlap is approx. 5 cm / 2''.

TWISTED CORD:
Cut 4 strands Safran of 4 metres. Twist them together until they resist, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end approx. 4 cm / 1½'' from the end. Fasten the cord in the first row of double crochets in the corner of the front piece – fasten as shown in A.4. Make another cord in the same way and fasten it to the other side of the front piece. The cords are tied at the back of the neck.
