EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

----------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.11. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.7). Begin to work on row with arrow in diagrams.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
On every row with treble crochets replace first treble crochet on row with 3 chain stitches.
On every row with double treble crochets replace first double treble crochet on row with 4 chain stitches.
On every row with double crochet replace first double crochet with 1 chain stitch.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, count the stitches to be increased (e.g. 133 stitches) and divide this number by stitches of increases to be done (e.g. 7) = 19. In this example increase by working 2 treble crochets in every 19th stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Increase 1 treble by working 2 trebles in one stitch.
BAND:
Then work 1 treble crochet in each of the 5 stitches for band, but on rows with double treble crochets in A.8, work double treble crochets in band instead of treble crochets – remember CROCHET INFORMATION.

DECREASE TIP:
* Make 1 yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, get yarn, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn through the 2 first loops on hook *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 treble crochet decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn).
Work buttonholes by replacing 4th treble crochet from edge with 1 chain stitch. On next row work 1 treble crochet around chain stitch. Work first buttonhole at end of 1st row on yoke. Then work the next 9 buttonholes approx. 7½-7½-8-8-8½-8½ cm apart – adjust so that buttonholes are on a row with treble crochets and not on a row with double treble crochets or double crochets).
