Pattern: See diagram M.1 to M.4. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS. Note! First row in M.1 = WS.

Decreasing tip (applies to front piece): Make all dec from RS inside 22 sts.
Dec as follows after 22 sts: P2 tog into back of st.
Dec as follows before 22 sts: P2 tog.
Note! Because of the decreases number of sts will not fit M.1. P sts not fitting into pattern from RS and K from WS.

Buttonholes: Make buttonholes on right front piece. 1 buttonhole = cast off 4th st from mid front, cast on 1 new st on return row.

Work 4 rows garter st – see above -and continue in reverse stocking st. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 6 cm dec 1 st each side on every 3.5-3.5-3.5-3.5-4-4 cm a total of 10 times = 77-84-90-99-110-119 sts. When piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm – adjust so that next row is from RS – work 5 rows garter st, at the same time on first row adjust number of sts to 78-86-90-98-110-118. Continue as follows from WS: 1 edge st, M.1 on the next 76-84-88-96-108-116 sts and finish with 1 edge st. When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm cast off for armhole each side on every other row: 4 sts (1 repeat) a total of 1-2-2-3-4-5 times (first time incl edge st in dec) = 68-68-72-72-76-76 sts. When piece measures 68-71-74-77-80-83 cm work garter st on the middle 36-36-40-40-44-44 sts, work remaining st as before. When piece measures 70-73-76-79-82-85 cm cast off the middle 20-20-24-24-28-28 sts for neck = 24 sts left on each shoulder.

Now read all of the following section before continuing!
After 1 vertical repeat of M.2, continue in M.3 above M.2. Repeat M.3 until piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm. NB! When you cannot fit in a full vertical repeat of M.3, only work and repeat the top 6 rows in diagram. At the same time when piece measures 6 cm dec at side as described for back piece = 51-54-57-62-67-72 sts. When piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm, adjust so that next row is from RS, work 5 rows garter st, but work 22 sts towards mid front as before. At the same time adjust number of sts to 51-55-59-63-67-71 on the first row in garter st (do not adjust on the 22 sts towards mid front).

When piece measures 43-46-47-50-53-56 cm dec 1 st to shape the neckline on every cm a total of 22-22-26-26-26-26 times – see Decreasing tip!

Sleeve: Cast on 62-66-70-74-78-82 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on needle size 4.5 mm. Work 5 rows garter st and continue in M.1 with 1 edge st each side. First row = WS. When piece measures 21-21-20-19-18-17 cm (less on the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder) dec to shape the sleeve cap each side on every other row. NB! Because of the decreases the number of sts will not fit M.1. P sts not fitting into pattern from RS and K from WS.
