Then, make 22 sts of the first shoulder, make 33 chain sts for neck-hole and make 22 chain sts for the shoulder = 77 sts. Continue work with the main pattern as one-piece cloth. At 18 cm height, make 18 chain sts form both sides for arm-holes = 99 sts. Crochet 34 cm with the main pattern and finish your work.
Make 22 chain sts increase and make 2 pattern repeat of the main pattern straight. Then, make increases for neck-hole from the left side due to the pattern design. At 10 cm height, there should be 38 sts in work. Continue crocheting straight. At 18 cm height from the beginning of work, make 11 chain sts from the right side for arm-hole = 49 sts. Crochet 34 cm straight and finish your work.
Make in symmetry to the left front.
Make 22 chain sts and work with the main pattern, make increases due to the pattern design for sleeve caps from both sides. At 13 cm height, there should be 55 sts in work. After that, make 11 chain sts from each side and continue work with the main pattern, make decrease due to the pattern design for sleeve chamfers from both sides. At 32 cm height from arm-hole, there should be 55 sts in work. Finish your work.

For collar, make 100 double crochets along the edge of neck-hole and first two rows of plackets (30 sts on each half of front, 40 sts on back). Work with double crochets for 3 rows, double every 7th crochet in every row. Then, make 5 rows without increases. Finish your work. Fasten lower edges of jacket and sleeves with 1 row of single crochets. Sew buttons.
Make from up to down. Make 220 chain sts and make 1 row of double crochets in straight and reversed directions.
