BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 216-236-260-284-308-336 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Cotton Light.
Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and continue in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE.
When piece measures 6-7-8-8-8-8 cm / 2½"-2 3/4"-3"-3"-3"-3", insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 108-118-130-142-154-168 sts (= in the sides on body).
Now dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 4½-4-3½-3½-3-3 cm / 1 3/4"-1½"-1 1/4"-1 1/4"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" 9-10-11-12-13-14 more times (= 10-11-12-13-14-15 dec in total) = 176-192-212-232-252-276 sts.
When piece measures approx. 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm / 19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21''-21¼'', work 2 ridges over the middle 14 sts in each side (i.e. 7 sts in garter st on each side of both markers, work the other sts in stockinette st as before).
On next round bind off 10 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. bind off 5 sts on each side of both markers) = 78-86-96-106-116-128 sts remain on front and back piece.
Put piece aside and knit the sleeve edges.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 56-58-60-66-70-74 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Cotton Light.
Work 2 ridges. On next round bind off the 10 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 5 sts at beg and 5 sts at the end of round) = 46-48-50-56-60-64 sts.
Put piece aside and knit another sleeve edge.

YOKE:
Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 as body (without working sts) = 248-268-292-324-352-384 sts. Insert 1 marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Beg mid back and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 10-2-12-2-2-6 sts evenly = 238-266-280-322-350-378 sts.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 17-19-20-23-25-27 repetitions on round).
When A.1 has been worked, 136-152-160-184-200-216 sts remain on needle.
Then work rib = K 1/P 1. AT THE SAME TIME when rib measures 1-2-3-4-5-6 cm / 3/8"-3/4"-1 1/8"-1½"-2"-2 3/8", insert 1 marker in the middle st at the front.
Now work an elevation at the back of neck with short rows - beg from RS mid back and continue with rib back and forth on needle as follows:
Work until 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts remain before st with marker, turn and work from WS until 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts remain before st with marker in the other side, turn piece.
Work until 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts remain before st with marker, turn piece and work until 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts remain before st with marker in the other side.
Turn piece, work until 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts remain before st with marker, turn piece and work until 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts remain before st with marker in the other side.
Turn piece, work until 42-44-46-48-50-52 sts remain before st with marker, turn piece and work until 42-44-46-48-50-52 sts remain before st with marker in the other side, turn and work until mid back.
