DECREASE TIP (applies to raglan):
Dec for raglan on each side of A.1 in every transition between sleeves and body.
Dec as follows before A.1: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after A.1: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 220-236-252-272-292-316 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Lima. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8, insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 110-118-126-136-146-158 sts (= the sides).
Work next round as follows: Work 7-11-15-6-11-17 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.3 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts, A.1 (= 6 sts), 14-22-30-12-22-34 sts in stockinette st (marker in the side is in the middle of these sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.3 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.1 (= 6 sts) and work the last 7-11-15-6-11-17 sts in stockinette st. Continue pattern like this.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE AND READ THE REST OF BODY BEFORE CONTINUING!

INC IN THE SIDES:
When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm / 2 3/8’’-2 3/8’’-2 3/8’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’, inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm / 3”-3”-3”-3½”-3½”-3½” 2 more times = 232-248-264-284-304-328 sts.

DEC AND INC IN PATTERN FRONT AND BACK:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm / 2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-3 1/8’’- 3 1/8’’- 3 1/8’’ – make sure that next round is with inc and dec in A.2/A.3 - dec 1 extra st in A.2 and A.3 on both front and back piece so that section with diagonal stripes becomes smaller. Dec 1 st in A.2 by working the last 2 sts before dec the same way as dec, i.e. K 2 tog. Dec 1 st in A.3 by working the next 2 sts after dec the same way as dec, i.e. slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 4 sts dec in total).
To avoid reducing no of sts, inc in addition on same round as dec in A.2/A.3. Inc 1 st outside A.1 towards stockinette st section in each side on both front and back piece - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc in total).
No of sts on body will thus not vary (excl inc in the sides). Section in garter st mid front and mid back becomes smaller and stockinette st section in each side becomes bigger.
Repeat this dec and inc every 4-4-5-5-5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-2”-2”-2”-2” 4 more times (= 5 dec in total in pattern in A.2/A.3 and 5 inc in stockinette st section).

ARMHOLES:
When piece measures 26-28-28-29-30-31 cm / 10Ό”-11”-11”-11 3/8”-11Ύ”-12Ό” (inc and dec should now be done), work next round as follows: bind off 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts for armhole, work 104-112-120-128-138-150 sts on front piece (i.e. 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts, A.3 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts, A.1 (= 6 sts) and 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st), bind off 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts for armhole, work 104-112-120-128-138-150 sts on back piece (the same way as on front piece) and bind off the last 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts for armhole.
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.
Cast on 44-46-46-48-50-52 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Lima. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve).
Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and work in stockinette st.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 15-14-12-11-10-9 cm / 6”-5½”-4Ύ”-4 3/8”-4”-3½”, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st each side of marker).
Repeat inc every other round 30-31-32-33-33-34 more times (= 31-32-33-34-34-35 inc) = 106-110-112-116-118-122 sts on needle. On next round (after last inc - piece measures approx. 39-39-38-38-37-37 cm / 15Ό”-15Ό”-15”-15”-14½”-14½”), bind off the middle 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts under sleeve (i.e. bind off 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts on each side of marker) = 94-98-100-102-104-108 sts remain on needle.
Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bind off (without working them first) = 396-420-440-460-484-516 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker in every transition between body and sleeves (= 4 markers) and move markers upwards when working.
Then work in stockinette st and pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME also working A.1 in every transition between body and sleeves (markers should be in the middle of A.1).

RAGLAN:
AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round after body and sleeves have been placed tog on to same circular needle, beg dec for raglan – READ DECREASE TIP (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other round 30-30-32-34-35-36 more times (31-31-33-35-36-37 times in total) and then on every round a total of 8-10-9-8-8-9 times.

DEC AND INC IN PATTERN FRONT AND BACK:
AT THE SAME TIME when 2-3-4-0-1-2 cm / Ύ”-1 1/8”-1½”-0-3/8”-3/4” have been worked after body and sleeve were put on to same circular needle, dec 1 extra st in A.2/A.3 as before and inc 1 st outside A.1 towards stockinette st section in each side front and back as before = 4 sts dec and 4 sts inc on round. Repeat this dec/inc every other round 33-33-33-39-39-39 times in total (these dec/inc are done in addition to raglan but does not affect no of sts).

ADJUSTING DIAGONAL LINES ON BACK PIECE:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 46-48-50-52-54-56 cm / 18’’-19’’-19Ύ’’-20½’’-21Ό’’-22’’ (measured along the shortest side on garment), dec and inc in A.2/A.3 on back piece every 8th round instead every 4th round (this only applies to the ordinary dec/inc in diagram (not the extra dec/inc every other round to make the middle section smaller). When this is done, the diagonal lines mid back will even out and make the neck line mid back straight.
Repeat this dec/inc every 8th round 2 more times, then work pattern in A.2/A.3 without the ordinary inc and dec (continue dec/inc to make the mid section smaller as before).

NECK EDGE:
After last dec for raglan there are 84-92-104-116-132-148 sts on needle. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-18-24-26-32-38 sts evenly = 70-74-80-90-100-110 sts on needle. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round, then loosely bind off with K.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.
