BODY
Worked in the round on circular needles. Read the entire pattern before you begin!
Cast on 180-200-220-240-260-280 sts using both ends of the circular needle (to make sure the edge becomes elastic) with 1 thread of each quality (= double thread). Remove 1 needle and K1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round. Now work M.1 (start at the side).
After 2 repeats of M.1 – piece measures approx 21 cm - insert a marking thread (MT) in the middle of each repeat (see arrow in M.1 = 9-10-11-12-13-14 MT). Continue in stocking st, at the same time on 2nd and 4th round after M.1 work M.2 over each MT = 144-160-176-192-208-224 sts left. Remove all MT after the last dec. When piece measures 25-25-25-26-26-26 cm insert 6 new MT as follows: K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-1), K 28-28-32-34-36-38 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-2), K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT before next st (= side), K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT (= MT-3), K 28-28-32-34-36-38 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-4), K remaining 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts and insert a MT (= side).
Now dec 1 st on both sides of the MT at sides (do not dec by the other MT on front and back) – see decreasing tips – on every 5-5-5-6-6-7 round a total of 8-9-9-9-9-9 times.
At the same time when piece measures 31-32-33-35-36-37 cm dec 1 st for cut after MT-1 and MT-3 and before MT-2 and MT-4 – see Decreasing tips – on every 6-6-8-8-8-8 round a total of 4-4-5-5-5-5 times. After all dec are complete there are 96-108-120-136-152-168 sts left. When piece measures 50-51-52-54-56-58 cm inc 1 st after MT-1 and MT-3 and before MT-2 and MT-4 - see Increasing tips above - on every 2-2-2-3-3-3 round row a total of 6-6-6-5-5-5 times = 120-132-144-156-172-188 sts. After last inc remove markers on front and back.
When piece measure 67-69-71-73-75-77 cm cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts each side for armhole (i.e. 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts on both sides of MT) = 52-58-64-68-76-84 sts left for front and back piece. Put the piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 40-42-44-48-50-54 sts using 2 double pointed needles size 6 mm with 1 thread of each yarn quality (= double thread). Remove 1 needle and K 1 round on double pointed needles, P 1 round and K 1 round. Work next round as follows: 0-1-2-4-0-2 stocking sts, M.3 on the next 40-40-40-40-50-50 sts and 0-1-2-4-0-2 stocking sts. Work 1 repeat of M.3 (piece measures approx 5 cm). K 1 round, at the same time cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts mid under arm for armhole = 32-34-36-38-40-44 sts left. Put sts on a thread and knit the other sleeve.

Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needle as body where cast off for armholes = 168-184-200-212-232-256 sts. Now dec as follows:
Size XS: Work 5 cm stocking sts, at the same time dec 14 sts evenly on the 3rd and 7th round = 140 sts.
Size S: Work 6 cm stocking sts, at the same time dec 12 sts evenly on the 3rd and 8th round = 160 sts

Size XL: Work 9 cm stocking sts, at the same time dec 8 sts evenly on the 3rd , 7th , 10th , and 14th round = 200 sts.
Size XXL: Work 10 cm stocking sts, at the same time dec 9 sts evenly on the 4th , 8th , 12th ,and 16rh round = 220 sts.

All sizes: When yoke measures 5-6-7-8-9-10 cm work M.4. After 1 repeat of M.4 there are 112-128-144-144-160-176 sts on needle. Work 2 rounds stocking sts, at the same time adjust no of sts to 111-123-144-144-159-171 on the last round. P 1 round, K 2 rounds and work next row as follows: *1 YO, K3 tog*, repeat from *-* = 74-82-96-96-106-114 sts left. K 2 rounds, at the same time adjust no of sts to 74-82-86-90-94-98 on the last row.
