GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.
Inc 8 sts on every round with inc. Inc on each side of the 3 sts in stockinette st which separate back piece, front piece and sleeves. Inc by making 1 YO, K YO twisted on next row to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in the pattern A.1:
Inc every 2nd and 3rd round 20-20-22-20-22-14 times in total.
Then work and inc differently on sleeves and front/back piece in the different sizes as follows:
SIZE S: Work 3 more rounds without inc = 232 sts on needle.
SIZE M: Inc every round on front/back piece 3 times and inc on 3rd round 1 time on sleeves. Work 2 rounds without inc = 248 sts on needle.
SIZE L: Inc every round 4 times on front/back piece, no inc on sleeves = 264 sts on needle.
SIZE XL: Inc every round 9 times on front/back piece and inc every 3rd round 3 times on sleeves = 288 sts on needle.
SIZE XXL: Inc every round 9 times on front/back piece and inc every 3rd round 2 times on sleeves = 304 sts on needle.
SIZE XXXL: Inc every round 23 times on front/back piece and inc every other round 11 times on sleeves = 332 sts on needle.
Dec on each side of 3 sts in stockinette st mid under sleeve.
Dec as follows before sts: Work until 2 sts remain before the 3 sts, slip 1 st, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows after sts: K 2 tog.
The piece is worked top down. Cast on 84-84-84-92-96-96 sts on circular needle size 5.5 and work 2 ridges in the round.
K 1 round and dec 12 sts evenly in all sizes = 72-72-72-80-84-84 sts. P 1 round - AT THE SAME TIME insert markers in the piece as follows: 1st marker at beg of round (= beg of back piece), 2nd marker after 18-18-18-18-20-20 sts (= end of back piece), 3rd marker after 3 sts, 4th marker after 12-12-12-16-16-16 sts (= left sleeve), 5th marker after 3 sts, 6th marker after 18-18-18-18-20-20 sts (= end of front piece), 7th marker after 3 sts, 8th marker after 12-12-12-16-16-16 sts (= right sleeve).
Then work according to diagram A.1 over front piece, back piece and sleeves AT THE SAME TIME inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above on each side of the 3 sts in stockinette st that separate the sleeves, front and back piece.
After raglan inc there are 232-248-264-288-304-332 sts on needle. On next round work A.1 over the 58-64-70-76-82-94 sts on back piece, bind off 3 sts, work A.1 over the 52-54-56-62-64-66 sts on right sleeve, slip sts from sleeve on a stitch holder. Bind off 3 sts, work A.1 over the 58-64-70-76-82-94 sts on front piece and bind off 3 sts, work A.1 over the 52-54-56-62-64-66 sts on left sleeve, slip sts from sleeve on a stitch holder and bind off 3 sts. Then work body and sleeves separately.
BODY: Work next row as follows: A.1 over the next 58-64-70-76-82-94 sts (= back piece), cast on 4 new sts under right sleeve, A.1 over the
next 58-64-70-76-82-94 sts (= front piece) and cast on 4 new sts under left sleeve = 124-136-148-160-172-196 sts. insert marker in the middle of the 4 new sts under each sleeve and move these when working. Put piece tog and work in the round according to A.1 over all sts until piece measures 41-43-45-47-49-51 cm / 16 1/8''-17''-17 3/4''-18½''-19 1/4''-20''. Work 2 ridges over 4 sts on each side of markers and A.1 over the other sts as before. (= 8 sts in each side in garter st). On next round divide the piece at the markers and work front and back piece separately until finished measurements with 4 sts in garter st in each side = 62-68-74-80-86-98 sts on needle. Work until piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' and work 2 ridges. K 1 row while AT THE SAME TIME inc 10-10-12-14-14-14 sts evenly = 72-78-86-94-100-112 sts. K 1 row and loosely bind off. Piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''.
Slip sts for sleeve back on needle = 52-54-56-62-64-66 sts, cast on 3 new sts and put piece tog and continue in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles = 55-57-59-65-67-69 sts. Work the 3 new sts under sleeve in stockinette st and work the other sts according to diagram A.1 as before. Insert a marker mid under sleeve, measure piece from here. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', dec 1 st on each side of the 3 sts in stockinette st mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP ABOVE, repeat dec every 2½-2-2-2-1½-1½ cm / 7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-½"½" 15-16-16-18-19-19 more times (16-17-17-19-20-20 dec in total ) = 23-23-25-27-27-29 sts. Work until piece measures approx. 41 cm / 16'' from marker, K 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts evenly = 27-27-29-31-31-33 sts, P 1 round and loosely bind off. Piece measures approx. 43 cm / 17'' (same length for all sizes because of wider body in the larger sizes).
