INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

CROCHET INFO:
Work every row back and forth and work together at the end/beginning of every row as follows:
Beginning every row with double crochets with 3 chain stitches (= first double crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of row, turn piece.
Begin every row with single crochets with 1 chain stitch (does not replace first single crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in first single crochet, turn piece.
On 3rd row in A.1 and 2nd row in A.4 begin and end row as follows: Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first 2 stitches on previous row, 3 chain stitches (replace first double crochet), finish row with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of row. Work both from right and wrong side.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches (e.g. 93 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 13.28. I.e. in this example increase by working 2 single crochets in same stitch in approx. every 13th.stitch.
To decrease evenly in this example work every 12th and 13th stitch together.

COLOR PATTERN: 
When switching color at the beginning of a row, work slip stitch at the end of previous row with the new color.
When changing color on row work as follows: Work last double crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next stitch. When working with two colors place strand for the color not worked over stitches from previous row, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows. When there are no more double crochets left on row to be worked in same color, the color does not need to follow onwards in piece, if it is to be used on next row, pick it up on next row, but make sure that the yarn comes on wrong side of piece.
Make sure to avoid tights yarn and not to tighten yarn when picking it up from previous row.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
Work piece back and forth (i.e. alternately from right and wrong side) and work together on every row, top down.

YOKE:
Work 109-114-118-123-129-133 chain stitches on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with light pink with and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Work 1 chain stitch - read CROCHET INFO, work 1 single crochet in each of the next 3-1-5-3-2-6 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* = 93-97-101-105-110-114 single crochets.

Work first row from wrong side as follows: Work 1 single crochet in every single crochet and increase
7-15-23-23-30-30 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 100-112-124-128-140-144 single crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work next row as follows from right side - read COLOR PATTERN:
Work A.1 over 16-20-24-24-24-24 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-6 repetitions of 4 stitches) (= half back piece), work A.2 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions of 1 stitch), A.1 over 12 stitches (= 3 repetitions), A.2 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions) (= right sleeve), A.1 over 36-40-44-44-56-56 stitches (= 9-10-11-11-14-14 repetitions) (= front piece), A.2 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions), A.1 over 12 stitches (= 3 repetitions), A.2 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions) (= left sleeve), A.1 over 16-20-24-24-24-24 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-6 repetitions = half back piece). When A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 140-152-164-188-200-224 stitches on last row. Piece measures approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8''.
Work next row as follows from right side:
Work A.3 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME increase 4 double crochets evenly = 144-156-168-192-204-228 double crochets. Then repeat A.3 12-13-14-16-17-19 times in width.
When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 228-247-266-304-323-361 stitches on last row (2 double crochets worked together = 1 stitch). Piece measures approx. 16 cm. Now finish piece with off white as follows:

Work A.4 over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME on first row increase 3-5-4-5-4-5 stitches evenly = 231-252-270-309-327-366 double crochets. Then repeat A.4 77-84-90-103-109-122 times in width.
On 3rd row in A.4 increase 9-6-9-6-9-6 double crochets evenly = 240-258-279-315-336-372 double crochets.
Then repeat A.4 80-86-93-105-112-124 times in width.
On last row in A.4 increase 6 double crochets evenly = 246-264-285-321-342-378 double crochets.
Then repeat A.4 82-88-95-107-114-126 times in width.
Continue pattern until piece measures 19-21-22-24-26-28 cm / 7 3/8"-8 ¼"-8 5/8"-9 3/8"-10 ¼"-11" from neck edge, adjust so that next row is a row with only double crochets.
Now divide body and sleeves as follows: Work A.4 as before over the first 33-36-39-45-51-57 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 double crochets (= half back piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 double crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 double crochet in 1-0-1-1-1-0 double crochets, work A.4 as before over the next 69-75-78-90-99-114 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 0-1-2-2-0-0 double crochets (= front piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 double crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 double crochets, A.4 as before over the next 33-36-39-45-51-57 double crochets, (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 156-166-177-201-218-244 stitches. Work pattern A.4 and AT THE SAME TIME on first row increase 0-2-0-0-1-2 double crochets evenly (A.4 is then repeated 52-56-59-67-73-82 times in width) = 156-168-177-201-219-246 double crochets.
When piece measures 3 cm / 1'' from where body and sleeves where divided, decrease 3 double crochets on next row (adjust to decrease on a row with only double crochets). Decrease like this every 2½-2½-4-3-4-2½ cm 5-5-3-4-3-5 times in total = 141-153-168-189-210-231 stitches. For every decrease work 1 repetition less of A.4 in width.
When piece measures 14 cm / 5½'' from where body and sleeves where divided, increase 3 double crochets evenly (adjust to increase on a row with only double crochets).
Increase like this every cm 13-13-14-14-14-14 times in total = 180-192-210-231-252-273 stitches. For every increase work 1 repetition more of A.4 in width.
Continue until piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm / 11 ¾"-11 ¾"-12 1/8"-12 1/8"-12 1/8"-12 1/8" from where body and sleeves were divided (49-51-53-55-57-59 cm / 19¼''-20''-21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼'' from neck edge), finish after 1 row with double crochets. Fasten off.

Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of row.
On next row with double crochets decrease 4-5-4-4-3-5 double crochets evenly = 57-60-66-72-75-78 stitches. Now repeat A.4 19-20-22-24-25-26 times in the round on row.
When sleeve measures 4 cm / 1½'' from where piece was divided from body, decrease 3 double crochets evenly on next row (adjust to decrease on a row with only double crochets). Decrease like this every 4-4-3-2-2-1½ cm 3-3-4-4-4-4 times in total = 48-51-54-60-63-66 stitches. Every time you decrease, repeat A.4 1 time less in total in width.

Wieviel Knäuel extra muss ich bestellen, wenn ich den Pulli mit langen Ärmeln häkeln möchte? Vielen Dank für die vielen tollen Anleitungen :-)
