Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 216-233-250-288-311-334 sts (incl 6 band sts each side) on 2 circular needles size 4 mm with Muskat (to avoid a tight cast on edge). Pull out one of the circular needles. K 4 rows over all sts. K the band sts on every row until finished measurements. Insert a marker in the piece after 57-61-65-75-81-86 sts each side (back piece = 102-111-120-138-149-162 sts). Continue to work M.1 (see diagram for size) with 6 band sts each side (1st row = from RS). Continue working like this until piece measures 20-22-24-24-26-28 cm (adjust so that 1 row of M.1 remain). On next row from WS, cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts each side for armholes (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts each side of every marker) = 200-217-234-268-291-314 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.
Cast on 85-85-102-92-92-115 sts on 2 double pointed needle size 4 mm with Muskat (or cast on over 2 circular needles to make room for all the sts and distribute on double pointed needles afterwards). Pull out one of the needles. Work 4 rounds in Garter st - see explanation above - in the round. Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). Continue working in the round with M.1, beg with st no 9-1-1-11-1-1 in M.1. Continue working like this until piece measures approx. 10-11-12-12-13-14 cm (adjust so that 1 round of M.1 remain). On next round cast off 5-0-4-8-1-6 sts at beg of round and 4-9-5-5-12-7 sts at end of round = 76-76-93-79-79-102 sts.
S: Cast on and work as right sleeve.
M-XXXL: Cast on and work as right sleeve, but cast off 9-5-5-12-7 sts i beg of round and 0-4-8-1-6 sts in the end of the round.
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 352-369-420-426-449-518 sts. Make sure to put the correct sleeve in matching hole to make pattern fit.
Continue to work M.2 (see diagram for size) with 6 band sts each side. NOTE! REMEMBER TO CAST OFF FOR BUTTON HOLES - see explanation above.
When M.2 has been worked vertically, 112-117-132-138-145-166 sts remain on needle. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. K 6 rounds before loosely casting off.
