INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

CROCHET INFO:
Begin every treble crochet row with 3 chain stitches (replaces first treble crochet).
When sleeves are worked in the round, begin and end every round in A.1 as follows:
Begin 1st and 2nd round in A.1 with 3 chain stitches (do not replace first treble crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round
Begin 3rd and 4th round in A.1 with 3 chain stitches (replace first treble crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round

STRIPES:
In the first 3 repetitions of the diagrams vertically work 1st and 2nd row with white, work the remaining rows in light blue purple - read COLOUR CHANGE. Then work the remaining repetitions of A.1 in light blue purple.

COLOUR CHANGE: 
When changing colour work as follows: Work last treble crochet with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then continue working.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches to be increased/decreased over (e.g. 24 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 3) = 8.
To increase evenly in this example work 2 treble crochets in every 8th treble crochet.
To decrease evenly in this example work every 7th and 8th treble crochet together. Decrease 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets together as follows: Work 1 treble crochet in/around first stitch, but wait with last pull through, work 1 treble crochet in/around next treble crochet/stitch, but on last pull through pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------
