Gauge: 23 sts x 30 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm (4» x 4»)

Pattern: See chart (1 chart = 1 repeat).
The pattern is seen from the right side.


Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.

BODY
Cast on 235 (245-255) sts (including 1 edge st at each edge which is knit in garter st) and knit Pattern 1 as follows:
1 edge st, Pattern 1 repeat 23 (24-25) times, 3 sts stockinette st, 1 edge st.
When the work measures 29 (29-29) cm [11-3/8"] knit Pattern 2 to finished dimensions as follows:
1 edge st, Pattern 2 repeat 23 (24-25) times, 3 sts stockinette st, 1 edge st.
At the same time, when the work measures 33 cm (13»), work the next row as follows: 58 (61-63) sts for the front, bind off 4 sts for armhole, 111 (115-121) sts for the back, bind off 4 sts for armhole, 58 (61-63) sts for the front.
Knit the rest of each part separately.

Front:
= 58 (61-63) sts. Bind off at armhole edge every other row: 2 sts 2 (2-2) times, then dec 1 st 3 (4-5) times = 51 (53-54) sts. When the work measures 45 (46-47) cm (17.75» (18-1/8», 18.5»), bind off at the neck edge every other row: 6 (8-7) sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times, then dec 1 st 2 times; then dec 1 st every 4th row 2 times. Bind off all sts when the work measures 55 (56-57) cm (21-5/8» (22», 22.5»).

Back:
= 111 (115-121) sts. Shape armholes as for the fronts = 97 (99-103) sts. When the work measures 53 (54-55) cm (20-7/8» (21.25», 21-5/8»), bind off the center 29 (31-31) sts for the neck. Then bind off 2 sts on each neck edge on the next row. Bind off all sts when the work measures 55 (56-57) cm (21-5/8» (22», 22.5»).

Sleeves:
Cast on 78 (78-82) sts on double pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Pattern 2. At the same time, inc 1 st each side of marker every other row 12 (14-14) times = 102 (106-110) sts (the increased sts should be worked in pattern stitch). When the work measures 5 (5.5-6) cm (2» (2.25», 2-3/8»), bind off 2 sts each side of marker and knit the rest back and forth on the needle. Then shape the sleeve caps on each side every other row: bind off 3 sts 8 (9-9) times, 4 sts 2 times, bind off all remaining sts. The work measures 12 (13-14) cm (4.75» (5-1/8», 5.5»).

Assembly:
Sew shoulder seams. Pick up 120 sts around the neck and knit 4 rows garter st. Bind off.

Front band:
Crochet along the left front as follows: 2 rows of 75 sc.
Repeat along the right front, but after the 1st row (which you should begin at the bottom), make buttonholes on the 2nd row as follows: 2 sc, *ch 2, skip 2 sc, 8-9 sc*. Repeat * - * (there should be 7-8 buttonholes).
Sew on sleeves and buttons.
