CARDIGAN:

Crochet gauge: 9 tc = approx. 10 cm in width
1 row of tc measures approx. 3 cm in height.

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

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

Crochet tip: At the beginning of every row with tc replace 1st tc with ch 4. Crochets in every tc from previous row, not between them.

Decreasing tips: Dec or bind off as follows:
At the beginning of row: replace each tc to be decreased with 1 sl st.
At the end of row: turn piece when the number of tc to be decreased remains, and crochet back.

Measuring tips: measure piece when lying flat.

Back: Ch 69-75-81-87-93. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 45-49-53-57-61 tc.
Now crochet pattern following Diagr.1. At the same time on the 1st and 3 rows the 2nd and 3rd repeats of Diagr.1, dec 1 tc at each side = 37-41-45-49-53 tc – see decreasing tips above.
When the piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67 cm – adjust length so that you bind off on a row with tc (if you bind off on the 2nd row of Diagr.1, 1 ch = 1 tc when bound off) – bind off 2-4-4-6-8 tc at each side for armhole = 33-33-37-37-37 tc.
When you have repeated Diagr.1 a total of 4 times (the piece measures approx. 75 cm), repeat the first row in Diagr.1 to finished measurements (that is, continue in tc, be sure the number of tc stays the same).
When the piece measures 75-78-81-84-87 cm crochet the last row with only 10-10-12-12-12 tc at each side for shoulder.
Cut yarn and fasten, the piece measures approx. 78-81-84-87-90 cm.

Right front: Read entire section before crocheting:
Ch 33-39-39-45-51. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 21-25-25-29-33 tc.
Now crochet pattern following Diagr.1.
Side decs: On the 1st and 3 rows the 2nd and 3rd repeats of Diagr.1, dec 1 tc at the side as on back.
Neck shaping: When the piece measures 20 cm dec 1 tc at the center front every row marked with a star (*) in Diagr.1 a total of 5-7-5-7-9 times – see decreasing tips above.
When the piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67 cm – adjust to match back – bind off for armhole at the side as on back.
After all decs 10-10-12-12-12 tc remain on shoulder.
When you have repeated Diagr.1 a total of 4 times (the piece measures approx. 75 cm), repeat the first row in Diagr.1 to finished measurements as on back. Cut yarn and fasten when the piece measures 78-81-84-87-90 cm.

Left front: Crochet same as the right, reversing shaping.

Sleeve: Ch 33-39-39-45-51. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 21-25-25-29-33 tc.
Repeat Diagr.1 a total of 2 times, and then follow Diagr.2 to finished measurements.
At the same time when Diagr.1 has been crocheted 1 time (the piece measures approx. 21 cm) inc 1 tc at each side every row marked with a star (*) in diagram a total of 5-4-4-4-4 times at each side = 31-33-33-37-41 tc.
When the piece measures approx. 54-54-54-51-48 cm put a marker at each side (markers show where the sleeves will be sewn into armhole).
Crochet 1-1-1-2-3 row more, then cut yarn and fasten, the piece measures approx. 57 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams edge to edge. Sew side seams edge to edge.
Sew sleeve seams in the same manner up to the marker and sew in sleeves – the marker on sleeves should match up with the side seams on Body. Make sure the seams are not too tight.
Edge: Pick up and knit approx. 195-219 sts (divisible by 6 + 3) along right front, back neck and down left front. K 2 rows (1st row = wrong side). Then knit rib, keeping 3 sts in garter st at each end, and begin rib with K 3 (as seen from the right side).
When the rib measures approx. 7 cm inc all K 3 to K 4 (as seen from the right side) over the center 21 sts in back neck. When edge measures 12 cm, bind off all sts loosely in rib – as you are binding off, inc all P 3 to P 4 (as seen from the right side) over the center 21 sts in back neck.
