GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.
See diagrams A.1-A.3.
Inc 1 st by getting yarn between 2 sts from previous round - K this st twisted, i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front to avoid holes.
Dec as follows before marker: Beg 4 sts before marker, P 2, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec).
Dec as follows after marker: Beg on 1st st after marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, P 2 (= 1 st dec).
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 212-212-244-268-280-304 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work as follows from mid back: Stockinette st over the next 46-46-54-60-63-69 sts (= back piece), A.1 (= 7 sts) over the next 14 sts, stockinette st over the next 92-92-108-120-126-138 sts (= front piece), A.1 over the next 14 sts, stockinette st over the next 46-46-54-60-63-69 m (= back piece). Continue in stockinette st, pattern according to diagram A.1 in each side until piece measures 23-25-22-21-23-20 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-8 3/4"-8 1/4"-9"-8". REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
On next round bind off for armholes in each side as follows: Work until the 2 repetitions in left side and bind off the 14 sts over A.1, work stockinette st over all sts on front piece, and bind off the 14 sts over A.1 in right side, work the rest of row and put piece aside (= 28 sts in total bind off) = 92-92-108-120-126-138 sts on back and front piece = 184-184-216-240-252-276 sts in total remain on needle.
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 133-133-147-161-154-168 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Work 3 ridges in garter st - see explanation above. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Then switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work pattern as follows: A.1 (= 7 sts) over all sts on round = 19-19-21-23-22-24 repetitions on round. Continue like this with pattern until piece measures 5 cm / 2'' from cast-on edge. NOTE! Stop after a round with stockinette st that is after a round like 3rd row in A.1 (i.e after round 4, 8, 12 etc), AT THE SAME TIME on this round bind off one whole repetition of A.1 on each side of marker (= 14 sts bind off in total mid under sleeve) = 119-119-133-147-140-154 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and Make another sleeve.
Read all of the following section before continuing!
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 422-422-482-534-532-584 sts, insert 1 marker in all transitions between body and sleeves (= 4 markers). Continue like this on next round: 46-46-54-60-63-69 sts in stockinette st (= back piece), insert a marker here, A.2 (= 21 sts), A.1 11-11-13-15-14-16 times in total, A.3 (= 21 sts), insert a marker here, stockinette st over the next 92-92-108-120-126-138 (= front piece), insert a marker here, A.2 (= 21 sts), A.1 11-11-13-15-14-16 times in total, A.3 (= 21 sts), insert a marker here, 46-46-54-60-63-69 sts stockinette st (= back piece), AT THE SAME TIME beg dec for RAGLAN BODY on body – see explanation above = 4 sts dec. Repeat the same dec every other round 30-30-37-44-44-51 more times, 31-31-38-45-45-52 times in total, AT THE SAME TIME continue working pattern with dec for raglan on sleeves. NOTE! When A.2 and A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, continue with the same dec in pattern on sleeves and the same dec for raglan on body as before.
When all dec are done, 154-154-154-146-144-136 sts remain on needle.
Then work as follows on next round from mid back:
Continue as before with stockinette st over sts on back piece, and pattern over left sleeve. Work stockinette st over the 30-30-32-30-36-34 sts on front piece before slipping front piece on a stitch holder.
Then work an elevation back and forth in neck as follows: On the next 6 rows continue with pattern over sleeves, stockinette st on back piece and dec as before, AT THE SAME TIME work an elevation in the back of neck as follows: Reduce no of sts worked as follows: Work until 3 sts remain on row, turn, work until 3 sts remain, turn, work until 6 sts remain, turn, work until 6 sts remain, turn, work until 9 sts remain, turn, work until 9 sts remain.
