Crochet gauge: 2 pattern repeats in width and 1 repeat in height = 8.5 cm x 3.3 cm [3.35" x 1.3"]
EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to the possibility for error in rounding the conversion of this gauge, I strongly recommend that you use centimeter measurements in order to obtain the correct gauge.

Knitting gauge: 23 sts x 30 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"].

Pattern: See charts. (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from the right side.
«Gjenta fra 3.p» = repeat from Row 3
«5.p» = Row 5
«3.p» = Row 3
«1.p» = Row 1
«1 rapport» = 1 repeat

Back: Ch 168 (192) with larger hook and work Pattern 1. When 13 (14) vertical repeats (of rows 3 through 7) have been worked (the work measures approx. 43 (46) cm [16-7/8" (18-1/8")] - shape armholes by working over only the center 10 (12) horizontal repeats. Then, when 21 (22) vertical repeats have been worked (the work measures approx. 69 (73) cm [27-1/8" (28.75")] - shape shoulders by working over only 3 (4) horizontal repeats at each side - the center 4 repeats are for the neck opening. Now 22 (23) vertical repeats have been worked and the work measures approx. 72 (76) cm [28.25" (29-7/8")].

Right front: Make the back first. Ch 84 (96) with larger hook and work Pattern 1. When 13 (14) vertical repeats have been worked (the work measures approx. 43 (46) cm [16-7/8" (18-1/8")] - shape armholes by working over only the 5 (6) horizontal repeats on the right side (= armhole on the left side). When 5 vertical repeats remain (the work measures approx. 56 (59) cm [22" (23.25")] shape neck as follows: On the first row do not work the outermost horizontal repeat on the right side. Complete that vertical repeat, then on the next row do not work the outermost horizontal repeat on the right - now 2 repeats have been "bound off". Work until length is the same as the back.

Left front: Crochet like the right front, but reverse all shaping.

Sleeves: Cast on 56 (58) sts on double pointed needles with blue; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Pattern 2 and at the same time inc 1 st each side of marker 38 (37) times:
Size S/M: every 3rd row
Size M/L: alternately every other and every 3rd row
= 132 (132) sts. When the work measures 42 (36) cm [16.5" (14-1/8")], bind off 2 sts each side of marker and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Bind off at each side for sleeve caps every other row: 3 (2) sts 14 (19) times, bind off. The work measures approx. 52 (49) cm [20.5" (19.25")].

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Work a row of sc in the back neck opening. Starting at the lower edge of the body, work a row of dc along the button band and around the neck with smaller hook: approx. 130-140 sts along the button band, approx. 150 around the neck and approx. 130-140 sts along the button band and then around the bottom edge of the body.
Then crochet a border up along the button band, around the neck and then down along the other button band as follows: * ch 3, 1 dc in the first ch, skip over 2 dc and work 1 sc in the next dc *, repeat from * - *. Repeat this border around the bottom edge of sleeve. Work a row of approx. 160 dc around the armhole with smaller hook. Sew on the sleeves so that the dc around the armhole are on the outside. Sew on the buttons. Use the outermost crocheted border as buttonholes.
