DECREASE TIP (applies to raglan):
Dec as follows in every transition between sleeve and body piece (beg 3 sts before marker): K 2 tog, K 1, (marker), K 1, 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 dec.

Cast on 100-104-116-128-136 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with blue and work rib K 2/P 2 until piece measures approx. 3 cm / 1’’.
Then continue in stockinette st – AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-2-2-2-4 sts evenly on first round = 96-102-114-126-132 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side.
When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾’’, inc 1 st on each side of markers in each side every 7 cm / 2¾’’ 3 times in total = 108-114-126-138-144 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When piece measures 23-25-27-28-29 cm / 9”-9 ¾”-10½”-11”-11½”, on next round bind off 6-6-6-6-8 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. bind off 3-3-3-3-4 sts on each side of markers) = 48-51-57-63-64 sts remain on front and back piece.
Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

Loosely cast on 36-36-40-40-44 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with blue and work rib K 2/P 2 until piece measures approx. 3 cm / 1’’.
Then continue in stockinette st – AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-6-8-8-10 sts evenly on first round = 28-30-32-32-34 sts.
When piece measures 10 cm / 4’’ inc 2 sts mid under sleeve, repeat every 8-6.5-7.5-6.5-6 cm / 3”-2½”-2 7/8”-2½”-2 3/8”, 3-4-4-5-6 more times = 36-40-42-44-48 sts.
When sleeve measures 36-39-43-46-48 cm / 14¼”-15¼”-17”-18”-19”, on next round bind off 6-6-6-6-8 sts mid under sleeve = 30-34-36-38-40 sts.
Put piece aside and work another sleeve.

YOKE: Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 156-170-186-202-208 sts. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body = 4 markers. Work 3-1-1-1-1 rounds before dec beg.


READ KNITTING TIP! Dec 1 st on each side of every marker, dec on each side of 2 sts (marker is in the middle of these (= 8 sts dec per round)). READ DECREASE TIP!
Repeat dec on every other round 9-11-12-13-14 times.

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 33-36-39-40-42 cm / 13”-14¼”-15¼”-15¾”-16½”, slip the middle 16-17-17-17-18 sts on 1 stitch holder for neck and continue back and forth.
Continue to bind off at beg of every row towards the neck as follows: 2 sts 2-2-2-1-1 time each side and then 1 st 0-0-0-3-3 times each side.
After all dec for raglan and bind offs for neck, 60-57-65-71-68 sts remain on needle.

With blue pick up 22 to 30 sts at the front of neck (includes sts on stitch holder) = approx. 80 to 100 sts.
K 1 round while at the same time dec evenly to 60-64-64-68-72 sts. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm / 1’’, then loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.

Sew the openings under the sleeves. Fasten off.
