Back: Ch 184, turn. 1st row: D c in 4th ch from hook (turning ch counts as 1 d c), d c in each st of ch (181 d c). Ch 3, turn. 2nd row: D c in each of next 5 sts, * ch 2, skip 2 d c, d c in next d c (this forms a sp). D c in each of next 11 sts. Repeat from * 11 more times, 1 sp, d c in each of next 5 sts, ch 3, turn. 3rd row: D c over d c, 2 d c over sps across.

5th row: * D c in each of next 11 sts, sp, repeat from * across, ending with 11 d c, ch 3, turn. Repeat 3rd and 4th rows 1 time. These 7 rows form the design. Continue working in design until 7 decreases have been made at each end, remembering that there will be 1 d c less at beginning of each sp row, or the design will not be uniform. Work even for 14 rows, then increase 1 st at both ends on the next row and every 3rd row 8 times. Work even until piece measures 13 inches.
Armhole: Sl st over 10 d c, ch 1, work to within 10 d c from other end, ch 3, turn. Continue work, decreasing 1st at both ends 3 times. Then work even until piece measures 6 inches from 1st row of armhole (27 rows, 57 d c across). This brings work to shoulder. Sl st over 6 sts, ch 1, work to within last 7 d c, s c in next, ch 1, turn. Next row: Sl st over 5 d c, work across to within last 6 d c, s c in next, ch 1, turn. Repeat this last row 6 more times.

Continue work, decreasing at side seam as in back and making 1 increase at front side on every row for 11 rows, then 2 increases for 5 rows. Work 18 rows (85 d c across). Break off. Work another piece to correspond. On the 19th row (a d c-row) decrease at side as usual, work to center front and join to other front, work across and make decrease at end of row. After completing the 7th decrease, work same as back up to armhole. Shape armhole the same, making 6 decreases instead of 3 (151 dc across after last row of decreases). On 8th row from armhole, work over 76 d c in design, ch 3, turn. Work even 11 more rows.
20th row: Work to within last 12 sts from front, ch 3, turn. Work 6 rows, decreasing 1 st at front on every row, working armhole even.

Jabot: Ch 111. 1st row: D c in 9th ch from hook, * ch 5, skip 1 ch, d c in next. Repeat from * 23 more times, ch 5, d c in same place as last d c, ch 5, skip 1 ch, d c in next, make 24 more loops, ch 8, turn. 2nd row: * D c in 3rd ch of loop below, ch 5. Repeat, from * to center loop. Ch 5, d c in same place, ch 5, d c in center of next loop. Work 24 more loops, ch 8, turn. Repeat this row until there are 16 rows in all. Break off. Attach thread at 1st row where work was started and finish the 2 short sides and the long side with d c in each st.
Collar and Tabs: Ch 9, d c in 4th st from hook and d c in each of next 6 sts. * Ch 3, turn, and work a 2nd row of d c over d c. Repeat from * until there are 17 inches.
