Read the entire section before knitting:
When the piece measures 11 cm inc 1 st at each side every 8-12-12-12-12 cm a total of 3 times = 53-57-61-65-69 sts. When the piece measures 28-35-37-38-40 cm knit 3 rows black, 2 rows charcoal grey, 15 rows black, and then knit charcoal grey to finished measurements. When the piece measures 33-41-42-43-44 cm bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-0-0-1-1 times and 1 st 2-2-3-2-3 times. When the piece measures approx. 38-46-47-49-50 cm (adjust so that there are the same number of sts bound off for armholes at both sides), divide for the neck opening as follows: put the center 5 sts + remaining sts on right side on a st holder (there will be 5 sts more on st holder than on needle).
Left side (sts on needles): Cast on 5 new sts at neck opening for placket. Continue with stockinette st, keeping 5 placket sts in garter st. When the piece measures 54-64-66-68-70 cm bind off the outermost 12-16-16-17-18 sts for shoulder. Put the remaining 10-10-11-11-11 sts on a st holder.
Right side: Put sts from st holder back on needles and knit stockinette st, keeping 5 placket sts (at center front edge) in garter st. When the piece measures 54-64-66-68-70 cm bind off the outermost 12-16-16-17-18 sts for shoulder. Put the remaining 10-10-11-11-11 sts on a st holder.

Back: Cast on and knit the same as the front. Bind off for armhole as on front. When the piece measures 52-62-64-66-68 cm put the center 13-13-15-15-15 sts on a st holder for the neck. On the next row dec 1 st at each neck edge = 12-16-16-17-18 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 54-64-66-68-70 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 26-26-26-29-29 sts on smaller needles with charcoal grey and knit rib for 8-10-10-10-10 cm. Change to larger needles and knit 2 rows garter st, adjusting (dec or inc) to 25-26-26-27-28 sts on the 1st row. Then knit stockinette st. When the piece measures 10-13-13-12-12 cm inc 1 st at each side every 5-4-3.5-3.5-3.5 cm a total of 8-9-10-11-11 times = 41-44-46-49-50 sts.
When sleeve measures 47-49-49-49-50 cm bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 1 time, then bind off 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 55-56-57-58-60 cm, then bind off 3 sts at each side 1 time. Bind off the remaining sts, the piece measures 56-57-58-59-61 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.
Hood: Pick up approx. 35-45 sts (incl. sts on st holders) on larger circular needles with charcoal grey and knit back and forth as follows (round 1 = wrong side): K 1 row, P 1 row, then knit stockinette st keeping 5 sts at each edge in garter st (= continuing the placket sts). After 2 rows inc 10 sts evenly distributed = 45-55 sts. Continue until hood measures approx. 32-34-34-34-34 cm, divide sts onto 2 needles, fold hood in half and Kitchener st the top together. Sew cast-on edge on left placket behind right placket. Sew in sleeves. Sew sleeve and side seams using edge sts as a seam allowance.
