I get many requests asking for help to read this pattern, so here's some help from me (I don't know Japanese, but have learned to interpret the diagrams through experience):
Crochet hook sizes required: Japanese 4/0 = 3.5mm (for Collar, bottom part) and 5/0 = 4mm (for Body and Collar, upper part). Gauge/ Tension: 1 repeat=3.5cm; 11.5 rows=10cm. Japanese yarn used, which is equivalent to DK/ Light Worsted/ Size 3. You may need to adjust hook sizes or yarn weights to achieve the right size.
Pattern is worked from the top down for the Body: row 1= Chain 113. (16 repeats + 1st) = 54cm, using 4mm crochet hook. Work according to the diagram provided for 44 rows/ 38.5cm, fasten off. The finished size on row 44 measures 140cm=31 repeats.
The Collar is worked upwards from the foundation row of the Body, but only 108 stitches used (not all 113, simply work single crochet decreases evenly to get the right number). Work according to the collar diagram for 15 rows/12cm using 3.5mm hook, and 5 rows/5cm using 4mm hook, finish off. Work the borders for 3cm/ 5rows according to the diagram provided, sew on buttons. Voila!:) Hope this lovely project inspires you to try even more complicated Japanese patterns.
