When piece measures 8-10-10-10-10-10 cm / 4'', dec as follows:
Dec in every section with 14-16-16-16-16-16 P sts by working as follows: P 2 tog, P 10-12-12-12-12-12, P 2 tog (= 10 sts dec in total). Repeat this dec every 5-4-4-4-4-4 cm / 2"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½" 6-7-7-7-7-7 more times. NOTE: On last dec work the remaining 2 P tog.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8-10-10-10-10-10 cm / 3"-4"-4"-4"-4"-4'', dec as follows:
Dec 1 st after 1st marker and 1 st before 2nd marker - see DECREASE TIP.
Repeat this dec every 6-4½-4½-4½-4½-4½ cm / 2 3/8"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4" 5-6-6-6-6-6 more times.

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'', dec as follows in pattern 2:
Dec 1 st before A.3 and 1 st after A.3 (= 16 sts dec). Repeat this dec every 10-20-20-20-20-20 cm / 4"-8"-8"-8"-8" 2-1-1-1-1-1 more times.
AT THE SAME TIME in size XL-XXL-XXXL dec as follows at every strand:
Dec 1 st by working the 2 P sts closes to A.3 P tog (= 4 sts dec). Repeat this dec every 20 cm / 8'' 1 more time.

When all dec are done, there are 225-241-257-293-313-333 sts on needle. There are now 2 P st at markers in the sides and 1 P st between A.4 and A.5 and between A.1 and A.2 and 4-5-6-6-7-8 P sts on each side of A.3.

When piece measures 44 cm / 17 1/4", adjust so that next row is from RS, inc as follows: 8 band sts in garter st, A.2, PATTERN 3 – see explanation above, A.4, P 1, A.5, pattern 3, A.4, P 0-0-0-6-7-8, A.3 0-0-0-1-1-1 time, 1 YO, P 2, 1 YO, A.3 0-0-0-1-1-1 time, P 0-0-0-6-7-8, A.5, pattern 3, A.4, P 1, A.5, pattern 3, A.1, P 1, A.2, pattern 3, A.4, P 1, A.5, pattern 3, A.4, P 0-0-0-6-7-8, A.3 0-0-0-1-1-1 time, 1 YO, P 2, 1 YO, A.3 0-0-0-1-1-1 time, P 0-0-0-6-7-8, A.5, pattern 3, A.4, P 1, A.5, pattern 3, A.1, 8 band sts in garter st (= 4 sts inc). K YOs twisted on next row to avoid holes. Repeat inc every 6th-6th-6th-12th-10th-12th row 5-5-5-3-4-4 more times = 249-265-281-309-333-353 sts. Work inc sts P from RS and K from WS.

When piece measures 58-59-60-61-62-63 cm / 22¾''-23¼''-23 5/8''-24''-24 3/8''-24¾'', divide the piece, finish front and back pieces separately as follows: Slip the first and last 66-70-74-81-87-92 sts on a stitch holder for front pieces, cut the yarn, then work only over the middle 117-125-133-147-159-169 sts (= back piece).

BACK PIECE:
Now bind off for armholes at beg of every row in each side as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 time, then 2 sts 1-1-1-3-4-4 times and 1 st 1-1-1-4-4-5 times = 105-113-121-121-129-137 sts. Then dec on next row from RS as follows: Dec 1 st before A.3 and 1 st after A.3 0-1-1-1-1-1 time = 105-105-113-113-121-129 sts. When piece measures 73-75-77-79-81-83 cm / 28¾''-29½''-30 3/8''-31''-32''-32¾'', dec 5 sts over A.1 and 5 sts over A.2 by working 2 and 2 sts K tog = 95-95-103-103-111-119 sts on needle. Then bind off the middle 25-25-27-27-29-31 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately = 35-35-38-38-41-44 sts remain on each shoulder. When piece measures 75-77-79-81-83-85 cm / 29½''-30 3/8''-31''-32''-32¾''-33½'', dec 3 sts over every A.4 and A.5 (= 9 sts dec) = 26-26-29-29-32-35 sts remain on needle. Bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 66-70-74-81-87-92 sts. Now bind off for armhole at beg of every row from the side as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 time, then 2 sts 1-1-1-3-4-4 times and 1 st 1-1-1-4-4-5 times = 60-64-68-68-72-76 sts.
Then dec on next row from RS as follows: Dec 1 st before A.3 and 1 st after A.3 0-1-1-1-1-1 time = 60-60-64-64-68-72 sts on needle. When piece measures 75-77-79-81-83-85 cm / 29½''-30 3/8''-31''-32''-32¾''-33½'', dec 5 sts over A.2 by working 2 and 2 sts K tog and 3 sts over every A.4 and A.5 = 46-46-50-50-54-58 sts. Then bind off the first 26-26-29-29-32-35 sts for shoulder, work the rest of row = 20-20-21-21-22-23 sts. Then work shawl collar in garter st over the remaining sts, beg mid front (1st row = RS) as follows: * Work 2 rows back and forth over the first 12-12-13-13-14-15 sts, work 2 rows back and forth over all sts *, repeat from *-* until shawl collar measures 8-8-9-9-10-10 cm / 3 1/8''-3 1/8''-3½''-3½''-4''-4'' at the shortest. Bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed. Dec 5 sts over A.1 instead of A.2. Shawl collar beg from WS.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 48-50-52-54-54-56 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Karisma. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above AT THE SAME TIME on last round inc 5 sts = 53-55-57-59-59-61 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! Work as follows: P 4-5-6-7-7-8, A.4, P 33, A.5, finish with P 4-5-6-7-7-8. Insert 1 marker at the beg of the round. On next round move A.4 and A.5 1 st towards the middle as follows: P 4-5-6-7-7-8, 1 YO, A.4, P 2 tog, P 29, P 2 tog, A.5, 1 YO, finish with P 4-5-6-7-7-8. P YO twisted on next round. Move A.4 and A.5 towards the middle 1 st every other round until 1 st remains between A.4 and A.5. Piece measures approx. 12 cm / 4¾''. Continue to work P and A.4/A.5 with 1 P st between until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm / 4'', inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 4-3½-2½-2½-2-1½ cm / 1½"-1 1/4"-7/8"-7/"-3/4"-½" 9-10-12-13-16-17 more times = 73-77-83-87-93-97 sts. When piece measures 49-49-47-47-46-43 cm / 19 1/4"-19 1/4"-18½"-18½"-18"-17" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) bind off for sleeve cap at beg of every row in each side: bind off 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 6 times, then bind off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 56-57-56-57-56-55 cm/22"-22½"-22"-22½"-22"-21½", then bind off 3 sts 1 time in each side AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sts over every cable. Bind off the remaining sts, piece measures approx. 57-58-57-58-57-56 cm / 22½"-22 3/4"-22½"-22 3/4"-22½"-22". Make another sleeve.
