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.

If knitting 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 row without dec evenly spaced between rounds with dec.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 184-212-240-268-296 sts (includes 5 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above.
Continue in stockinette st with 5 sts in garter st in each side. The 5 sts in garter st in each side = bands.
Work bands in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Insert 2 markers in the piece; 48-55-62-69-76 sts in from each side (back piece = 88-102-116-130-144 sts).
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) = 160-188-216-244-272 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'', beg dec for BUTTONHOLES – see explanation above!

When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17 1/4''-17 3/4''-18''-18½''-19''-19 1/4'' (next row = from WS), 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 rows in garter st have been worked over the 8 sts in each side, bind off these 8 sts for armholes on next row from WS (bind off with K from WS) = 160-188-216-244-272 sts. Piece now measures approx. 45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''.
