INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

CROCHET INFORMATION:
Begin every round with treble crochets with 3 chain stitches and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round (These 3 chain stitches do not replace first treble crochet on round.)

STRIPES:
Work 1 round/row with autumn forest (applies to rounds/rows with 3 treble crochets + 1 chain stitch in diagram A.2-A.6).
Work 1 round/row with raspberry cake (applies to rounds/rows with 3 chain stitches + 1 treble crochet in diagram A.2-A.6).
Repeat these 2 rounds/rows the rest of piece.

TIP FOR CHANGING YARN: 
To make the colour transitions in Delight pretty when switching ball, it is important to find a ball that starts with the same colour last ball ended with.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Work 9 crochet squares before sewing them together into a square back piece. Then work around this square and skip stitches for armholes. Then work back and forth for front pieces. Finish by working the sleeves in the round.
CROCHET SQUARE:
Work 6 chain stitches on hook size 4 mm with autumn forest and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Then work PATTERN in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Read TIP FOR CHANGING YARN!
1 crochet square should measure 12 x 12 cm. Work 9 crochet squares in total.

ASSEMBLY OF CROCHET SQUARES:
Place the squares with 3 squares in width and 3 squares in height.
Crochet squares together alongside and then across as follows:
Place 2 squares together wrong side against wrong side and work together from right side: * 1 double crochet in corner of first square, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in corner of next square, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next stitch on first square, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next stitch on second square, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next stitch on first square, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next stitch on second square *, work from *-* but in transitions between each set of squares work 1 chain stitch. Work the all the squares together in this way.
NOTE! Make sure that the transitions between every square are pretty when the squares are worked together alongside.
Fasten off. NOTE! Insert 1 marker thread in outer row in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.

Then work 1 round with treble crochets around the entire square as follows - start at the top in the right corner (= 1st corner = see chart).
Work 1 double crochet around chain space in corner, 3 chain stitches - read CROCHET INFORMATION, 2 treble crochets + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochets around same chain space, then work 1 treble crochet in each of the 23 treble crochets on every square + 1 treble crochet between each square at the top of back piece = 75 treble crochets along each side with 2 chain stitches in each corner. Continue around the square back piece in the different sizes as follows:

Size S/M:
Work STRIPES - see explanation above and work from 1st corner as follows:
ROUND 1: Work A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b over the next 3 treble crochets, A.2c until 6 treble crochets remain before next corner, A.2d over the next 6 treble crochets, A.2a around chain space in next corner. Work 42 loose chain stitches and skip 42 treble crochets (= armhole), work A.2c over the next 27 treble crochets, A.2d, A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b, A.2c until 6 treble crochets remain before next corner, A.2d, A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b, A.2c over the next 27 treble crochets, work 42 loose chain stitches (= armhole), skip 42 treble crochets, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.
ROUND 2: Work next round in diagrams the same way, but work 14 repetitions A.2c around chain stitch row for armhole in each side. There are now room for 24 repetitions A.2c + A.2b and A.2d, along each side of square, and A.2a in each corner.
Continue until diagrams have been worked vertically, then repeat the last 2 rounds in diagram A.2a, A.2b, A.2c and A.2d until piece measures 20 cm – finish after a repetition with 3 treble crochets + 1 chain stitch! Cut the yarn. Then work FRONT PIECE - see explanation below.

Size L, XL, XXL and XXXL:
Work STRIPES - see explanation above and work from 1st corner as follows:
* Work A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b over the next 3 treble crochets, A.2c until 6 treble crochets remain before next corner, A.2d over the next 6 treble crochets *, work from *-* for the rest of the round.
When 2 rounds have been worked, size L and XL are done.
When 4 rounds have been worked, size XXL and XXXL are done.
Then repeat the last 2 rounds in diagram A.2a, A.2b, A.2c and A.2d and work armhole as follows:
ROUND 1: Work A.2a around chain space in 1st corner, A.2b, A.2c until 6 treble crochets before next corner, A.2d, A.2a around chain space in next corner. Work 45-45-48-51 loose chain stitches and skip 45-45-48-51 treble crochets (= armhole), work A.2c over the next 36-36-45-42 treble crochets, A.2d, A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b, A.2c until 6 treble crochets remain before next corner, A.2d, A.2a around chain space in corner, A.2b, A.2c over the next 36-36-45-42 treble crochets, work 45-45-48-51 loose chain stitches, skip 45-45-48-51 treble crochets (= armhole), finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.
ROUND 2: Work next round in diagrams the same way, but work 15-15-16-17 repetitions A.2c around chain stitch row for armhole in each side. Continue by repeating the last 2 rounds in diagram A.2a, A.2b, A.2c and A.2d until piece measures 20 cm – finish after a repetition with 3 treble crochets + 1 chain stitch! Cut the yarn. Then work FRONT PIECE - see explanation below.

ALL SIZES:
FRONT PIECES:
Work front pieces back and forth seperatly. Continue stripes as before.
Begin from wrong side and fasten strand with 1 double crochet around chain space in 1st corner - see star on chart!
Work A.3a around chain space (show how row begins and ends), A.3b until 4th corner, work A.3c around chain space in corner (shows how row begins and ends). Continue like this back and forth. When diagrams have been worked vertically, repeat the 2 last rows in diagram until front piece measures 24-26-27-28-29 cm - finish after a row as last row in diagrams! Fasten off. Repeat on the other side the same way but now work back and forth from 3rd to 2nd corner - see chart!

Finish with a round treble crochet around entire jacket: Work 1 treble crochet in every treble crochet / 1 treble crochet around every chain space (3 treble crochets, 1 chain stitch, 3 treble crochets), in the outermost treble crochet in each of the four corners. Fasten off.

SLEEVES:
Work sleeve in the round from armhole. Remember CROCHET INFORMATION!
Insert a marker under armhole. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Beginning of round is here! Begin by working 84-92-92-96-104 treble crochets evenly around the opening for sleeve with raspberry cake. Continue in the round with stripes as before and pattern as follows: Work A.4 over the first 16 treble crochets, work A.5 over the next 48-56-56-60-68 treble crochets, work A.6 over the last 20 treble crochets. Continue like this in the round. When diagrams have been worked vertically, 1 decrease has been done on each side of marker thread. Then repeat pattern from row marked with arrow in diagram 3-4-4-3-4 more times vertically (= 4-5-5-4-5 decreases on each side of marker thread). Continue with pattern the same way without decreasing until sleeve measures 54 cm – finish after a round as last round in A.4-A.6. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Diagram

= this round/row has already been worked, begin on next round/row!
= round begins with 1 chain stitch and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 1st chain stitch at beginning of round
= round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round
= row begins with 3 chain stitches
= repeat pattern from this round
