GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

See diagram M.1. The diagram shows the pattern from RS. NOTE: The YOs are not worked on return row but slipped off the needle to make holes.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 80-88-96-106-114-122 sts with Bomull-Lin on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work 1st row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st - See explanation above, * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*, 1 edge st in garter st. Work rib like this for 6 cm / 2 3/8''.
On next row from RS, switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work diagram M.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 14-14-14-16-16-16 sts evenly = 66-74-82-90-98-106 sts (= 8-9-10-11-12-13 repetitions of diagram M.1 + 1 edge st in garter st in each side).
When diagram M.1 has been worked 7-7-7-8-8-8 times vertically (piece measures approx. 27-27-27-30-30-30 cm / 10½"-10½"-10½"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-11 3/4") cast on new sts for sleeves in each side as follows (beg from RS) – NOTE: Work the new sts in the pattern: Cast on 1 new st in each side on every 4th row (i.e. on every other row from RS) a total of 4 times, then cast on 2 new sts at the end of every row a total of 6 times in each side, then cast on 8 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows and finally 16 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 146-154-162-170-178-186 sts (= 40 new sts in each side, diagram M.1 has now been worked 11-11-11-12-12-12 times vertically and piece measures approx. 39-39-39-42-42-42 cm / 15 1/4"-15 1/4"-15 1/4"-16½"-16½"-16½").

On next row from RS bind off the middle 22-22-24-24-26-26 sts for neck = 62-66-69-73-76-80 sts remain on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately.

bind off for neck at the beg of every row from RS as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 times, 2 sts 1 time, and 1 st 2 times = 55-59-62-66-69-73 sts.
When diagram M.1 has been worked 16-16-17-18-19-19 times vertically (piece measures approx. 54-54-57-60-63-63 cm / 21 1/4"-21 1/4"-22½"-23½"-24 3/4"-24 3/4"), work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements – while AT THE SAME TIME binding off for diagonal shoulder at the beg of every row from WS as follows: 8-8-8-12-12-12 sts 2 times and then 8 sts 2 times = 23-27-30-26-29-33 sts remain on needle.
Loosely bind off all sts on next row from RS (piece measures approx. 57-57-60-63-66-66 cm / 22½"-22½"-23½"-24 3/4"-26"-26").
