At the beginning of each row with treble crochets, replace the first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches.
At the beginning of each row with double treble crochets, replace the first double treble crochet with 4 chain stitches.

INCREASE TIP:

Increase 2 treble crochets in each side (= 4 treble crochets increased on the row) as follows: 3 treble crochets in the first treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet until there is 1 treble crochet left, work 3 treble crochets in the last treble crochet (= 4 treble 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 and Safran. Work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook (= 2 double crochets), work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 double 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 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Continue by working treble crochets back and forth and increase in each side of the piece as follows:
Work 4 rows where you increase 1 treble crochet in each side of the piece (= 2 treble crochets increased on the row) – READ INCREASE TIP and CROCHET INFO = 54-58-58-62-62-66 treble crochets.
Now increase as follows: * Work 1 row where you increase 2 treble crochets in each side, work 2-2-2-5-4-12 rows where you increase 1 treble crochet in each side *, repeat from *-* 5-6-6-3-4-1 more times = 102-114-114-118-122-122 treble crochets on the row. The piece measures approx. 14-16-16-18-18-19 cm. 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 treble crochet in each of the 102-114-114-118-122-122 treble 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 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook (= 2 treble crochets), 1 treble crochet in the next 1-1-4-2-0-0 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* 12-13-15-18-22-26 more times, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 102-114-114-118-122-122 treble crochets, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 treble 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 treble crochets.
Continue working back and forth with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet until the piece measures approx.4-4-6-7-8-9 cm. Then work 1 row where you adjust the number of stitches to 211-235-253-277-313-343 treble 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 treble crochets, A.2 over the next 198-222-240-264-300-330 treble crochets (= 33-37-40-44-50-55 repeats of 6 stitches), finish with A.3 over the last 9 treble 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 in from the edge and the next approx. 4½ cm in from the edge – see illustration with star. These are buttoned between two treble crochets. The overlap is approx. 5 cm.

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 from the end. Fasten the cord in the first row of treble 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.
