INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique: 
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert hook through loop, get the yarn from ball, pull yarn through loop, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn over through stitch on hook = 1 double crochet, work 4 chain stitches (= 1 double treble crochet), then work 15 double treble crochets around loop, finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch = 16 double treble crochets. Pull yarn end tighten loop together so that the hole in the middle disappears. Then work as explained in pattern.

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

FAN:
1 fan = 2 double treble crochets, 2 chain stitches and 2 double treble crochets worked into a chain space.

CROCHET TOGETHER:
See diagram A.6. Decrease 1 repetition as follows:
Work 1 double treble crochet in first chain space but wait with last pull through. Work next double treble crochet in next chain space but wait with last yarn over and pull through. Work next double treble crochet in last chain space and pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook. On next round skip the double treble crochets worked together.

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Worked in the round from mid back on the back. Work the sleeves at the end.

Work a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above, on hook size 3.5 mm with Baby Merino. Then work according to A.1 - NOTE: First round in A.1 is explained below magic circle. Work 4 repetitions of A.1b in the round on every round. A.1a shows how round begins and ends. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been worked, there are 28 groups of double treble crochets / 56 double treble crochets on round.

Work from 2nd round in A.2 as follows: Work A.2a (shows how round begins and ends), continue with A.2b in the round (= 14 repetitions). Work A.2 1 time vertically = 84 treble crochets/chain spaces.

Work from 2nd round in A.3 as follows: Work A.3a (shows how round begins and ends), continue with A.3b in the round (= 42 fans/double treble crochets). Work from A.2: 3rd round 1 time and 4th round 4-5-6 times (= 6-7-8 rounds in total with fans and double treble crochets).

ARMHOLES:
Work next round as 4th round in A.2 (fans and double treble crochets), at the same time work as follows: Work the first 5 repetitions as before (1 repetition = 1 double treble crochet, 1 chain space, 1 fan, 1 chain space ), work 1 double treble crochet in next double treble crochet, work 40-44-48 new chain stitches, skip next fan and the next 5-6-7 repetitions, (skip 6-7-8 fans and 5-6-7 double treble crochets in total = armhole), work as before in the next 20-18-16 repetitions, work 1 double treble crochet in next double treble crochet, work 40-44-48 new chain stitches, skip next fan and the next 5-6-7 repetitions, (skip 6-7-8 fans and 5-6-7 double treble crochets in total = armhole), work as before in the last 5 repetitions.

Work next round as follows:
Work 5th round in A.2, around chain spaces for armhole work 6-7-8 repetitions of A.2 (= 36-42-48 treble crochets with 5 chain stitches between each) = 42 repetitions in total of A.2 (= 252 treble crochets in total with 5 chain stitches between each).

Work from 2nd round in A.4 as follows: Work A.4a, continue with A.4b, but 10 times evenly on round (= approx. every 4th repetition work A.5b instead of A.4b to increase) = 52 repetitions of A.4.

Work from 2nd round in A.2 as follows: Work A.2a, continue with A.2b in the round = 52 repetitions of A.2. On next round continue from 3rd round in A.2a and A.2b. When 4th round has been worked vertically, repeat this round 3-4-5 more times (= 6-7-8 rounds with fans/double treble crochets in total).

Work next round as follows:
Work 5th round in A.2 (= 312 treble crochets with 5 chain stitches between each).

Work from 2nd round in A.4 as follows: Work A.4a, continue with A.4b, but 10 times evenly on round (= approx. every 5th repetition work A.5b instead of A.4b to increase) = 62 repetitions of A.4.

Work from 2nd round in A.2 as follows: Work A.2a, continue with A.2b in the round = 62 repetitions of A.2. On next round continue from 3rd round in A.2a and A.2b. When 4th round has been worked vertically, repeat this round 3-4-5 more times (= 6-7-8 rounds with fans/double treble crochets in total).

Work next round as follows:
Work 5th round in A.2 (= 372 treble crochets with 5 chain stitches between each).

Work from 2nd round in A.4 as follows: Work A.4a, continue with A.4b, but 10 times evenly on round (= approx. every 6th repetition work A.5b instead of A.4b to increase) = 72 repetitions of A.4.

Work from 2nd round in A.2 as follows: Work A.2a, continue with A.2b in the round = 72 repetitions of A.2. On next round continue from 3rd round in A.2a and A.2b. When 4th round has been worked vertically, repeat this round 3-4-5 more times (= 6-7-8 rounds with fans/double treble crochets in total).

Work next round as follows:
Work 5th round in A.2 (= 432 treble crochets with 5 chain stitches between each).

Work from 2nd round in A.4 as follows: Work A.4a, continue with A.4 b, but 20 times evenly on round (= approx. every 3rd repetition work A.5b instead of A.4b to increase) = 92 repetitions of A.4.

Work from 2nd round in A.2 as follows: Work A.2a, continue with A.2b in the round = 92 repetitions of A.2. On next round continue from 3rd round in A.2a and A.2b. When 4th round has been worked vertically, repeat this round 3-4-5 more times (= 6-7-8 rounds with fans/double treble crochets in total).

Work next round as follows:
Work last round in A.2 (= 552 treble crochets with 5 chain stitches between each). Fasten off. Piece measures approx. 120-130-140 cm in diameter.

SLEEVES:
Work in the round from armhole and down. Begin mid under sleeve: In the side where fans were skipped. Work as last round in A.2 BUT with only 1 chain stitch between treble crochets, then work 36-42-48 treble crochets with 1 chain stitch between each from the other side of armhole = 72-84-96 treble crochets/chain stitches.

Work 2nd round in A.4 = 12-14-16 repetitions around armhole. Then work 2nd round in A.2. Continue with fans and double treble crochets as in 3rd and 4th round in A.2. When piece measures 3 cm from armhole, decrease 1 repetition under sleeve. See diagram A.6 and read CROCHET TOGETHER. Decrease alternately before and after mid under sleeve every 8 cm, 6 times in total = 6-7-8 repetitions remain on round. Fasten off when piece measures 54-54-54 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way, but start in the opposite side so that the round starts mid under sleeve.
