Note: The squares tend to stretch. Be sure to make a swatch and block it, to check gauge. Adjust size if necessary.

STITCHES USED

Chain (ch), double crochet (dc), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl st). NOTES

1. The back and fronts are formed from large and small granny squares. Each square is joined to any previous squares when the final round (joining round) of the square is worked. Refer to the assembly diagrams for the placement of squares. Squares on the assembly diagram are numbered. Begin with square #1 and work to completion. Then work square #2, and on the final round, join square #2 (working square) to the square #1 (previous square).

2. The back and fronts are worked separately. The shoulder seams are then sewn. Next, the sleeves are worked directly onto the body, from the shoulder down to the wrist edge. The side and sleeve seams are then sewn. If desired, the sleeves can be worked separately and then sewn to the body, before sewing the side and sleeve seams.

3. The fronts are wider than half the back width, to allow for overlap when closing jacket with a pin.

Joining Notes:

1. There are several different ways that the squares are joined, depending on the number and/or size of the squares being joined. Each large square has 7 groups of 3-dc per side, and each small square has only 3 groups of 3-dc per side. When 2 small squares are joined to a large square, the extra 3-dc group in the center of the large square must be handled differently. The first small square is joined to one side of the center 3-dc of the large square; the second small square is joined to the first small square (with a sl st in the corner of the small square) and to the other side of the center 3-dc of the large square. Refer to the joining diagrams.

2. When working a corner and joining to previous squares. Three stitches will always be worked. When there is only one previous square, work (ch 1, sl st in previous square, ch 1). When there are two previous squares, work

(sl st in previous square, ch 1, sl st in next previous square). And, when there are three previous squares, work

(sl st in previous square, sl st in next previous square, sl st in next previous square). Refer to the joining diagrams.

Round 7 (joining round): Sl st in first ch-3 sp, ch 3, (2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in same ch-3 sp, [ch 1, *3 dc in next ch-3 sp, ch 1; repeat from * to next corner ch-3 sp; 3 dc in corner ch-3 sp, ch 1, sl st in corner ch-sp of previous square, ch 1, 3 dc in same corner ch-3 sp of working square, **sl st in next ch-1 sp of previous square, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp of working square; repeat from ** to next corner ch-3 sp of working square, working last 3 dc in corner ch-3 sp of working square, ch 1, sl st in corner ch-sp (or next ch-1 sp) of previous square, ch 1, 3 dc in same corner ch-3 sp or working square; continue in this manner to join working square and any previous squares and to complete the round. Refer to the joining notes and joining diagrams. Fasten off.
