When the piece measures 19-20-21-22-23 cm inc 1 st at each side every 5 cm a total of 3 times = 29-32-35-39-42 sts. When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41 cm bind off 3 sts at each side for armhole. Then shape raglan at each side every other row: dec 1 st 3-3-3-4-4 times then bind off 2 sts 1 time = 13-16-19-21-24 sts remain on needles. Lay piece aside and knit back.

Back: Cast on and knit the same as the front.

Sleeve: Cast on 42-42-42-46-46 sts on smaller circular needles and K 1 row from wrong side.
Then knit Rib-1, keeping 1 st in garter st at each side. When the piece measures 10 cm dec all P 3 to P 2 = 32-32-32-35-35 sts. Continue with Rib-2.

Then shape raglan at each side every other row: dec 1 st 3-3-3-4-4 times then bind off 2 sts 1 time = 8-10-12-12-12 sts remain on needles. Lay piece aside and knit a second sleeve.

Assembly: Sew raglan seams inside 1 edge st.

Yoke: Put sts from the sleeves and body in on the same smaller circular needles as follows: sleeve, front, sleeve, back = 42-52-62-66-72 sts. Join and K 1 row (right side), increasing evenly distributed to 72-78-84-90-96 sts – measure the work from here. Knit Rib-3 for 5 cm, then inc every 3rd K 1 to K 2 = 84-91-98-105-112 sts. Repeat inc when the piece measures 15 and 25 cm so that when the piece measures 25 cm the rib is * K 2, P 1 * around entire row = 108-117-126-135-144 sts. When the piece measures 30 cm bind off all sts in rib – so that the bound off edge will not be too tight inc every other K 2 to K 3 at the same time as you bind off.
