Gauge: 17 sts x 22 rows on larger needles in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: *K 3, P 3*, repeat from *-*.

Pattern: See the chart below. The pattern is seen from the right side.


Decreasing tips (for raglan):
Dec as follows on right side:
Start 4 sts before the marker: Sl 1 as if to knit, K 1, psso, K 4 (the marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), K 2 tog.
Dec as follows on wrong side:
Start 4 sts before the marker, P 2 tog, P 4, P 2 tog, twisting sts (if this is too difficult, sl 2, return to left needle 1 by 1, twisting each, then P 2 tog).

BODY
Cast on 155-159-179-183-203 sts on smaller circular needles; join and knit rib as follows: K 3-5-3-5-3 (put a marker in the center st = side), *P 3, K 3*, repeat *-* over the following 24-24-30-30-36 sts, Pattern 1 (= 26 sts), *K 3, P 3*, repeat *-* over the following 24-24-30-30-36 sts, K 3-5-3-5-3 (put a marker in the center st = side), *P 3, K 3*, repeat *-* over the following 72-72-84-84-96 sts and finish with P 3.
On the last row of Pattern 1 dec 2 sts on back and at the same time inc 4 sts on the front as shown in chart = 157-161-181-185-205 sts.
When Pattern 1 is complete (the piece measures approx. 4 cm) change to larger circular needles and continue as follows: K 3-5-3-5-3, Pattern 2 over the following 24-24-30-30-36 sts, Pattern 3 (= 30 sts), Pattern 2 over the following 24-24-30-30-36 sts – reverse the pattern so that it will be the same on both sides of Pattern 3, K 3-5-3-5-3 and Pattern 2 over the remaining 73-73-85-85-97 sts.
When the piece measures 12 cm inc 1 st at each side of sts with markers at each side every 5-4-6-4-4 cm a total of 4-6-4-6-6 times – knit the increased sts in Pattern 2 as you go along = 173-185-197-209-229 sts. When the piece measures 34-41-42-43-43 cm bind off 7 sts at each side for armhole (= the sts with the markers + 3 sts each side = 82-88-94-100-110 sts on front and 77-83-89-95-105 sts on back. Lay piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE
Cast on 42-42-42-48-48 sts on double-pointed needles 4 mm [US 6]; join and place a marker at the join. Knit rib.
When the piece measures 4 cm change to larger double pointed needles and work following Pattern 2 (the pattern will not come out even).
When the piece measures 9-12-14-14-14 cm inc 1 st on each side of seed st at marker every 3.5-2.5-2-2.5-2 cm a total of 11-14-17-15-20 times (knit the incd sts into the pattern as you go along) = 64-70-76-78-88 sts.
When the piece measures 50-51-53-53-54 cm bind off 7 sts at marker (the st with the marker + 3 sts each side of marker) = 57-63-69-71-81 sts. Lay piece aside and knit second sleeve.

Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needles as Body where you bound off for armhole = 273-297-321-337-377 sts Put a marker in each transition between Body and sleeves = 4 markers. Knit 2-3-0-0-0 rows before decreasing.
Read the entire next section before knitting:
Raglan shaping: Dec 1 st at each side of each marker (= 8 decs) – see Decreasing tips above. Dec every other row 18-21-23-24-24 times and every row 0-0-1-1-6 times.
Pattern: When the piece measures 50-59-61-63-65 cm – adjust to end after a cable – knit Pattern 4 over the center 30 sts (decreasing the 4 sts incd on the last row of Pattern 1 at lower edge of Body) – knit the remaining sts as before.
On the next row put the center 30-30-30-34-34 sts on a st holder for the neck and knit back and forth on needles. Continue to dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 1-2-2-2-2 times. After all raglan and neck shaping is complete, 93-91-91-95-95 sts remain and the piece measures approx. 56-66-68-70-72 cm to shoulder. Neckband: Pick up and knit approx. 32-38 sts in front neck (incl. sts on st holder) on double-pointed needles and put all sts on same needles = approx. 125-133 sts. Join and P 1 row, then K 1 row, decreasing evenly distributed to 83-89-89-95-95 sts. Knit rib (K 3, P 3) – but at center front there should be a P 2, following pattern on front. When the collar measures 18-20-20-22-22 cm bind off all sts in rib. Fold neckband out to right side.
If you want a crew neck, knit as follows: knit rib until the collar measures approx. 10-11-12-12-13 cm, bind off in pattern. Fold the neckband to wrong side and stitch in place.

Assembly: Sew opening under the sleeve.

HAT:
Sizes: one-size

Materials: DROPS ESKIMO from Garnstudio
100 gr nr 15, marine blue.

DROPS 9 mm [US 13] double-pointed needles, or size needed to obtain correct gauge.

Gauge: 10 sts x 14 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: *P 5, K 2*, repeat from *-*.

Hat: Cast on 56 sts; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 1 row stockinette st, then knit rib – see instructions above. When the piece measures 12 cm dec all P 5 to P 4 = 48 sts. When the piece measures 15 cm dec all P 4 to P 3 = 40 sts.
Dec in the same way 2 more times with 3 cm between each dec round so that there will be 1 P less for each dec round = 24 sts – the rib is now *K 2, P 1*. When the piece measures 22 cm knit the next row as follows: *K 2 tog, P 1*, repeat from *-* over all sts = 16 sts. Cut yarn and pull through the remaining sts, fasten neatly. Hat measures approx 23 cm high.
