Pattern: See charts. The pattern is knit entirely in stockinette st.
Body: Cast on 176-192-208-232-248 sts on smaller circular needles with black. Knit 3 rows stockinette st, then knit rib – see instructions above. When the piece measures 5 cm change to larger circular needles, knit 2 rows garter st, then knit stockinette st, adjusting (inc/dec) on the first row to 172-190-210-232-248 sts. Put a marker at each side. When the piece measures 6-6-8-8-8 cm inc 1 st at each side of each marker every 5-5-6-6-6 cm a total of 5-5-4-4-4 times = 192-210-226-248-264 sts. When the piece measures 32-33-34-35-36 cm bind off 10 sts at each side for armhole (5 sts at each side of each marker) = 86-95-103-114-122 sts on body. Lay piece aside and knit the sleeves.
Right sleeve: Cast on 66-66-75-75-75 sts on smaller needles with black and knit 3 rows stockinette st (1st row = wrong side). Then knit rib as follows: K 4 (edge sts knit in garter st), * K 4, P 5 *, repeat * - * and finish with K 4 and K 4 (edge sts knit in garter st). On the next row dec all P 5 to P 4 = 60-60-68-68-68 sts. When the rib measures 18 cm place a marker after 30-30-34-34-34 sts and cut yarn.
Put cuff together – lay the 4 garter sts on the left side over the 4 garter sts on the right side as when the garment is worn. Divide sts onto 4 larger double-pointed needles and begin row at the marker.
Knit 4 rows rib as before, but P the overlapping sts through both layers. Then knit 2 rows garter st over all sts and then knit stockinette st.
After the 1st row of stockinette st inc 1 st each side of marker a total of 11-13-11-14-16 times:
Sizes S + L: alternately every 5th and 6th rows
Size M: every 5 rows
Size XL: every 4 rows
Size XXL: alternately every 3rd and 4th rows
= 78-82-86-92-96 sts. When the piece measures 44-44-44-43-43 cm bind off 5 sts each side of marker = 68-72-76-82-86 sts. Put sts on a st holder and knit a second sleeve, reversing cuff overlap.
Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needles as body where you bound off for armholes = 308-334-358-392-416 sts.
Place a marker in each transition between body and the sleeves = 4 markers. Continue with stockinette st over all sts and knit 1-0-2-1-2 rounds before beginning raglan shaping, then:
Dec 1 st as follows before markers: K 2 tog.
Dec 1 st as follows after markers: Slip 1 st as if to knit, K 1, psso.
Dec every other row 9-11-11-13-14 times = 236-246-270-288-304 sts. After raglan dec knit 1 round with black, decreasing evenly distributed across the round to 231-242-264-286-297 sts, then knit and dec following the chart for Pattern 1.
After the last dec 126-132-144-156-162 sts remain on needles. Complete Pattern 1. Then knit 1 round with black, decreasing evenly distributed across round to 90-90-90-96-96 sts (divisible by 6).
Neckband: Change to smaller double pointed needles and knit Pattern 2 once (the neckband measures approx. 5 cm). Change to pink and knit 1 round, then knit the next round as follows: * K 2 tog, yo *, repeat * - * around round (= folding edge). Continue until edge measures 5 cm from folding edge, change to black, knit 2 rounds and bind off. Fold neckband to wrong side and stitch in place loosely.
