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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

BUTTONHOLE:
Dec for buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = K tog third and fourth st from edge and make 1 YO.
Dec for buttonholes when piece measures:
SIZE S: 9, 14, 19 and 24 cm / 3½”, 5½”, 7½” and 9½”
SIZE M: 10, 15, 20 and 25 cm / 4”, 6”, 8” and 10”

SIZE XXXL: 9, 14, 19, 24 and 29 cm / 3½”, 5½”, 7½”, 9½” and 11½”

DECREASE TIP 1:
When 2 sts remain before diagram A.1, dec 1 st by working 2 sts tog. If second st is K, K 2 tog. If second st is P, P 2 tog.

DECREASE TIP 2:
After diagram A.2 dec 1 st by working 2 sts tog. If first st is K, K 2 tog. If first st is P, P 2 tog.

DECREASE TIP (applies to neckline):
Dec for neck inside all sts in garter st (i.e. band + inc sts for collar). All dec are done from RS!
Dec as follows after all sts in garter st: If first st is K, K 2 tog. If first st is P, P 2 tog.
Dec as follows when 2 sts remain before all sts in garter st: If second st is K, K 2 tog. If second st is P, P 2 tog.

INCREASE TIP 1:
Inc 1 st on each side of the 2 middle P sts mid back as follows from RS: 1 YO, P 2 (= mid sts), 1 YO. On next row work YO twisted to avoid holes (work inc sts in rib, i.e. K the first inc st from WS (twisted first time) and P from RS, the next 2 P from WS and K from RS, the next 2 K from WS and P from RS, the next 2 P from WS and K from RS etc.).

INCREASE TIP 2:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside 1 edge st in garter st. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP 3:
Inc 1 st after the one P st after band on right front piece and before the one P st before band on left front piece from RS. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row work YO twisted to avoid holes (work inc sts in rib, i.e. K the first inc st from WS (twisted first time) and P from RS, the next 2 inc sts are P from WS and K from RS, the next 2 inc sts are K from WS and P from RS, the next 2 inc sts are P from WS and K from RS etc.).
----------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
LOOSELY cast on 78-86-94-102-110-126 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 2 strands Kid-Silk. Work first row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see explanation above, * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 5-6-7-8-9-11 times in total, P 1, A.1 (= 16 sts), P 2, A.2 (= 16 sts), P 1, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* 5-6-7-8-9-11 times in total and finish with 1 edge st in GARTER ST. Continue rib and pattern like this back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When piece measures 8-8-8-10-12-12 cm / 3”-3”-3”-4”-4Ύ”-4Ύ”, beg displacements of cables in A.1 and A.2. Work first row as follows from RS: Work as before until 2 sts remain before A.1, dec 1 st - READ DECREASE TIP 1, work A.1 over the next 16 sts as before, inc 1 st on each side of the middle 2 P sts - READ INCREASE TIP 1, work A.2 over the next 16 sts as before, dec 1 st - READ DECREASE TIP 2 and work the remaining sts on needle in rib as before.
Continue rib and pattern as before AT THE SAME TIME dec outside A.1 and A.2 and inc inside A.1 and A.2 as explained above, in size S + M + L: Every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) 14-18-22 times in total and in size XL + XXL + XXXL: Every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 26-30-38 times in total.
After last displacement there are 7 sts between cable in A.1/A.2 and ridges in garter st on sleeve edge. After last displacement continue rib and pattern straight up without dec and inc on each side of cables.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm / 10Ό’’-10 5/8’’-11’’-11 3/8’’-11Ύ’’-12Ό’’, insert 1 marker in each side. On next row from RS, inc 1 st in each side for sleeve edge - Read INCREASE TIP 2! Repeat inc every other row (i.e. every row from RS), 12 more times (= 13 times in total) = 104-112-120-128-136-152 sts.
When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm / 20½’’-21Ό’’-22’’-22Ύ’’-23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’, bind off the middle 16-16-16-20-20-20 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Continue with pattern and rib as before.
AT THE SAME TIME bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 43-47-51-53-57-65 sts remain needle. Continue to work until piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21Ό’’-22’’-22Ύ’’-23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25Ό’’, loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.
Repeat on the other shoulder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
LOOSELY cast on 45-49-53-57-61-69 sts (includes 1 edge st in the side and 6 band sts towards mid front) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 2 strands Kid-Silk. Work first row as follows from RS: 6 band sts in garter st, P 1, A.2 (= 16 sts), P 1, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* 5-6-7-8-9-11 times in total and finish with 1 edge st in garter st. Continue rib and pattern like this back and forth – remember BUTTONHOLE on band – see explanation above. When piece measures 8-8-8-10-12-12 cm / 3”-3”-3”-4”-4Ύ”-4Ύ”, beg displacement of cable in A.2. Work first row as follows from RS: 6 band sts in garter st, P 1, inc 1 st - READ INCREASE TIP 3, work A.2 over the next 16 sts as before, dec 1 st - READ DECREASE TIP 2 and work the remaining sts on needle in rib as before. Continue rib and pattern as before AT THE SAME TIME inc inside A.2 (towards band) and dec outside A.2 the same way as on back piece.
After last displacement there are 7 sts between cable in A.2 and ridges in garter st on sleeve edge, continue rib and pattern straight up without inc and dec.
SLEEVE EDGE: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm / 10Ό’’-10½’’-11’’-11½’’-11Ύ’’-12Ό’’, insert 1 marker in the side.
On next row from RS beg inc for sleeve edge and inc at the end of every row from RS as on back piece.

SHAWL COLLAR: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 29-30-31-32-33-34 cm / 11½’’-11Ύ’’-12Ό’’-12½’’-13’’-13½’’, inc 1 st for shawl collar inside outermost band st towards mid front - READ INCREASE TIP 2.
Repeat inc every other row 3-3-5-5-7-7 more times (= 4-4-6-6-8-8 times in total), then every 4th row 3 times in total in all sizes and finally every 8th row 3 times in total in all sizes = 10-10-12-12-14-14 sts inc for collar and 16-16-18-18-20-20 sts in garter st in total.

NECKLINE: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm / 11Ύ’’-12Ό’’-12½’’-13’’-13½’’-13Ύ’’, dec 1 st for neckline on next row from RS - see DECREASE TIP 3. Repeat dec every other row 3-3-3-5-5-5 more times (= 4-4-4-6-6-6 times in total) and then every 4th row 5 times in total in all sizes.
After all inc and dec, there are 59-63-69-71-77-85 sts on needle.
Continue to work until piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21Ό’’-22’’-22Ύ’’-23½’’-24½’’-25Ό’’. On next row from WS bind off the outermost 43-47-51-53-57-65 sts on shoulder, K over the 16-16-18-18-20-20 sts in garter st.
Then work in garter st back and forth over these sts for collar as follows (beg mid front): * 2 rows over all sts, 2 rows over only the outermost 10-10-12-12-14-14 sts (towards mid front) *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm / 2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-3’’-3’’-3’’ on the most narrow part, bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as right front piece but reversed. I.e. work A.1 (instead A.2). Dec before A.1 as explained in DECREASE TIP 1 and inc before the last P st before band as explained in INCREASE TIP 3. Inc for sleeve edge at beg of every row from RS (instead of end of every row from RS).
When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21Ό’’-22’’-22Ύ’’-23½’’-24½’’-25Ό’’, bind off for shoulder at beg of row from RS (instead of WS), K over the 16-16-18-18-20-20 sts in garter st and work short rows over collar sts as on right front piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew collar tog mid back (make sure that seam is not visible when collar is folded down) and sew collar to neckline at the back of neck inside 1 edge st.
Sew side seams in one inside 1 edge st from marker at armhole and down. Sew on buttons.
