GARTER ST:
K back and forth on all rows. 1 ridge = 2 K rows.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside 1 edge st in each side. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes.

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 91-101-109-119-129-139 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand of each yarn. Work rib on 1st row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - read explanation above, * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 1 and 1 edge st in garter st.
Work rib for 4 cm / 1½''.
On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and K over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 15-17-19-21-21-21 sts evenly = 76-84-90-98-108-118 sts. Then continue in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm / 3"-3"-3"-3½"-3½"-3½", insert a marker in each side of piece (vent stops here).
When piece measures 43-44-45-46-47-48 cm / 17''-17¼''-17¾''-18''-18½''-19'', bind off for armholes as follows: bind off 3-4-4-5-6-7 sts at beg of the next 2 rows = 70-76-82-88-96-104 sts.
Continue in garter st until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''-26''.
Then bind off the middle 20-20-22-24-26-28 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Then bind off 2 sts on next row from neck = 23-26-28-30-33-36 sts remain on the shoulder.
Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''-26''-26¾''.

Front piece is worked the same way as back piece but 4 cm / 1½'' shorter.
Cast on and work rib, then work in garter st as on back piece (NOTE: Do not insert marker).
When piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm / 15¼''-15¾''-16''-16½''-17''-17¼'', bind off for armholes the same way as on back piece. Continue in garter st until front piece measures 44-46-47-49-50-52 cm / 17 1/4"-18"-18½"-19 1/4"-19 3/4"-20½".
Then bind off the middle 14-14-16-16-18-18 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Then bind off on every row from neck as follows: 2 sts 1-1-1-2-2-2 times, 1 st 3-3-3-2-2-3 times = 23-26-28-30-33-36 sts remain on shoulder.
Loosely bind off all sts when front piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 44-46-50-52-54-56 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand of each yarn. Work rib on 1st row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 edge st in garter st.
Work rib for 4 cm / 1½''. On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and K over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-6-8-8-8-8 sts evenly = 38-40-42-44-46-48 sts. Then continue in garter st until finished measurements.

Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 52-51-51-50-49-47 cm / 20½"-20"-20"-19 3/4"-19 3/4"-18½" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders).

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside bind off edges. Sew in sleeves, sew sleeve seams inside 1 edge st - NOTE: The section worked after the marker at the top of sleeve, should fit the bind off for armhole.
Sew side seam from armhole and down to marker on back piece (vent = 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm / 3"-3"-3"-3½"-3½"-3½" measured on back piece).
