PATTERN:
See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams show the pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, work the next 2 sts tog, work 2 sts (marker is between these), work the next 2 sts tog.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Work until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, work 2 sts (marker is between these), make 1 YO. On next row work YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

BUTTON HOLES:
bind off for 6 button holes on right band.
1 BUTTON HOLE = bind off 5th and 6th st from edge and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts.

BODY:
Back and front piece are worked in one from mid front. Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 177-193-209-225-257-281 sts with Muskat on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work in garter st - Read explanation above - for approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' (1st row = RS, finish with 1 row from WS). Then work 2 rows in stockinette st with 8 sts in garter st in each side (= bands mid front). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Work next row from RS as follows:

Size S - M - L - XL:
4 sts in garter st, bind off for 1st button hole - Read BUTTON HOLES above, 2 sts in garter st, 4 sts in stockinette st, diagram M.1, diagram M.2, then diagram M.1 1 more time, 6-10-14-18 sts in stockinette st, insert a marker (= right side), 6-10-14-18 sts in stockinette st, * diagram M.1, diagram M.2 *, repeat from *-* 3 times, then diagram M.1 1 more time, 6-10-14-18 sts in stockinette st, insert a marker (= left side), 6-10-14-18 sts in stockinette st, diagram M.1, diagram M.2, then diagram M.1 1 more time, finish with 4 sts in stockinette st and 8 sts in garter st. Move the markers upwards when working.

Size XXL - XXXL:
4 sts in garter st, bind off for 1st button hole - Read BUTTON HOLES above, 2 sts in garter st, 4 sts in stockinette st, diagram M.1 2 times, then diagram M.2 1 time and diagram M.1 1 time, 18-24 sts in stockinette st, insert a marker (= right side), 18-24 sts in stockinette st, diagram M.1 1 time and diagram M.2 1 time, diagram M.1 2 times, diagram M.2 1 time, diagram M.1 2 times, then diagram M.2 1 time and diagram M.1 1 time, 18-24 sts in stockinette st, insert a marker (= left side), 18-24 sts in stockinette st, diagrams M.1 and M.2 1 time, then diagram M.1 2 times, finish with 4 sts in stockinette st and 8 sts in garter st. Move the markers upwards when working.

All sizes:
Continue with pattern and 8 sts in garter st and 4 sts in stockinette st in each side of piece. REMEMBER TO BIND OFF FOR BUTTON HOLES ON RIGHT BAND! When piece measures 5 cm / 2'', dec 1 st on each side of every marker - Read DECREASE TIP above = 4 sts dec. Repeat dec every 2-2-2½-2½-3-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-7/8"-7/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" a total of 4 times = 161-177-193-209-241-265 sts on needle (= 2-6-10-14-14-20 sts in stockinette st on each side of every marker).
Continue until piece measures 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½''-8''-8¼'', then inc 1 st on each side of every marker - Read INCREASE TIP above. Repeat inc every 6 cm / 2 3/8'' a total of 4 times = 177-193-209-225-257-281 sts. When piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm / 15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼'', divide the piece at the markers and finish each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 83-91-99-107-123-135 sts. Continue with pattern as before - AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armholes in each side on every other row as follows: bind off 3 sts 0-1-1-1-1-2 times, 2 sts 1-1-2-3-4-6 times, and 1 st 3-4-6-8-6-5 times = 73-73-73-73-89-89 sts.
Continue with pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm / 21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾'', bind off the middle 17-17-17-17-33-33 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Bind off 2 sts at beg of the next 2 rows from neck, and 1 st on next row from neck = 23 sts remain on shoulder. Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 47-51-55-59-67-73 sts. Bind off for armhole in the side as on back piece = 42-42-42-42-50-50 sts. Continue with pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st in the side, and 4 sts in stockinette st and 8 sts in garter st mid front until piece measures 46-48-50-51-53-55 cm / 18"-19"-19 3/4"-20"-21"-21 5/8". On next row from WS work until 8 sts in garter st remain (= right band), slip the remaining 8 sts on a stitch holder, turn piece.
Then bind off for neck at the beg of every row from RS (= every other row) - AT THE SAME TIME continue pattern as follows: bind off 4-4-4-4-12-12 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times, and 1 st 1 time. Then bind off 1 st at the beg of every other row from RS (= every 4th row) 2 times = 23 sts remain on shoulder.
Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work the same way as on right front piece but reversed and without button holes.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 44-46-48-50-52-54 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Work in garter st - Read explanation above - for 2 cm / 3/4'' and insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). Then work in stockinette st. When piece measures 6-6-6-6-6-5 cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2 3/8"–2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2", inc 1 st on each side of marker = 2 new sts. Repeat inc every 4½-4-3½-3-2½-2½ cm / 1 3/4"-1½"-1 1/4"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8" a total of 9-10-11-13-14-15 times = 62-66-70-76-80-84 sts.
Continue until piece measures 47-47-47-47-43-43 cm / 18½-18½"-18½"-18½"-17"-17" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders and longer sleeve cap). From here work back and forth until finished measurements.
Bind off for sleeve cap at the beg of every row in each side as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and then 1 st until piece measures approx. 55-56-57-58-55-56 cm / 21 5/8"-22"-22½"-22 3/4"-21 5/8"-22". Continue to bind off at beg of every row in each side as follows: bind off 2 sts 2 times, 3 sts 1 time. Loosely bind off all sts, piece measures approx. 57-58-59-60-57-58 cm / 22½"-22 3/4"-23 1/4"-23 5/8"-22½"-22 3/4". Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams from RS with stitches. Sew the sleeves inside 1 edge st.

NECK EDGE:
Work an edge from RS on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 as follows: Start on right band, slip the 8 sts from stitch holder back on needle and work these sts, knit up approx. 80 to 100 sts inside 1 edge st, slip the 8 sts from stitch holder on left band back on needle and work these sts.
K next row from WS - while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 84-84-84-88-102-102 sts (do not adjust over the 8 sts in garter st in each side) = 100-100-100-104-118-118 sts on needle.
Then work in garter st until finished measurements - while AT THE SAME TIME casting/binding off for the last button hole at beg of 1st row from RS. When neck edge measures approx. 1 cm / 3/8'', loosely bind off all sts. Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Diagram

= K from RS, P from WS
= P from RS, K from WS
= K 2 tog
= From RS: slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso From WS: P 2 tog
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
