GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows from RS: Beg 3 sts before marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

KNITTING TIP:
If gauge is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan dec will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra round without dec evenly spaced between rounds with dec.

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 176-204-232-260-288 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Continue in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Insert 2 markers in the piece, 88-102-116-130-144 sts apart.
When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', dec 1 st on each side of markers, repeat dec every 3 cm / 1 1/8'' 5 more times (6 dec in total) = 152-180-208-236-264 sts.
When piece measures 28 cm / 11'', inc 1 st on each side of markers, repeat inc every 5-5-5½-5½-6 cm / 2"-2"-2 1/4"-2 1/4"-2½" 3 more times (4 inc in total) = 168-196-224-252-280 sts.
When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17 1/4''-17 3/4''-18''-18½''-19''-19 1/4'', work in garter st over 8 sts in each side (= 4 sts on each side of marker in each side), work the remaining sts as before.
When 4 rounds in garter st have been worked over the 8 sts in each side, bind off these 8 sts for armholes = 152-180-208-236-264 sts.
Piece now measures approx. 45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''.

YOKE:
Work next round as follows: Work in stockinette st over front piece, cast on 48-48-55-55-62 new sts over armhole, work in stockinette st over back piece, cast on 48-48-55-55-62 new sts over the other armhole = 248-276-318-346-388 sts.
Work 3 rounds over all sts as follows: Work in garter st over the middle 44-44-51-51-58 new sts for sleeve, work the other sts in stockinette st. Insert 1 marker in each side of the new sts for sleeve in each side (= 4 markers). READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Now work as follows: K 2, P 2, A.1 over the next 70-84-98-112-126 sts, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), P 2, A.1 over the next 42-42-49-49-56 sts, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), P 2, A.1 over the next 70-84-98-112-126 sts, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), P 2, A.1 over the next 42-42-49-49-56 sts, K 2 (marker is after these sts).
On next round beg dec for raglan in each of the 4 transitions between body and sleeves (i.e. 8 dec per dec round) - READ DECREASE TIP AND KNITTING TIP!
Repeat dec every 4th round 2-3-2-3-2 more times, and every other round 12-11-15-14-18 times (15-15-18-18-21 dec in total).
Switch to a shorter circular needle when needed. After all dec, 128-156-174-202-220 sts remain on round.
Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 0-10-16-28-34 sts evenly = 128-146-158-174-186 sts.
Bind off.
