DECREASE TIP (applies to body):
Dec on each side of marker in each side as follows: Beg 4 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

INCREASE TIP 1 (applies to body):
Inc on each side of marker as follows:
Beg 2 sts before marker and make 1 YO, K 4 sts (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP 2 (applies to sleeve):
Inc on each side of marker as follows:
Beg 1 sts before marker and make 1 YO, K 2 sts (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Before round yoke beg dec for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body. Beg 2 sts before marker, K 2 tog, marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 – choose diagram for correct size. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 184-200-220-244-264-292 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 8 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 36-40-44-48-52-60 sts evenly = 148-160-176-196-212-232 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 74-80-88-98-106-116 sts (= the sides). Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 10 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 4-4-4-3-3-3 cm a total of 4-4-4-5-5-5 times = 132-144-160-176-192-212 sts. When piece measures 26 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm a total of 3 times in all sizes = 144-156-172-188-204-224 sts. When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm, work next round as follows: Cast off 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts for armhole, work 66-72-78-86-92-102 sts (= front piece), cast off 6-6-8-8-10-10 sts for armhole, work 66-72-78-86-92-102 sts (= back piece) and cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 52-52-52-56-56-56 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 8 cm. K 1 round while dec 12 sts evenly in all sizes = 40-40-40-44-44-44 sts. Insert 1 marker at the beg of round. Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm and work in stocking st. When piece measures 10-11-13-13-10-12 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP 2. Repeat inc every 3½-3-2½-2½-2½-2 cm 10-11-12-12-13-15 times in total = 60-62-64-68-70-74 cm. When piece measures 45-45-44-44-44-43 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), cast off the middle 6-6-8-8-10-10 sts mid under sleeve = 54-56-56-60-60-64 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 5 mm as body where armholes were cast off = 240-256-268-292-304-332 sts. Insert 1 marker in every transition between sleeves and body = 4 markers. Work in stocking st in the round with light grey AT THE SAME TIME dec for RAGLAN – see explanation above, in every transition between body and sleeves. Repeat dec for raglan every other round 1-2-3-4-2-3 times in total = 232-240-244-260-288-308 sts. K 1 round with light grey while dec 8-8-4-4-8-8 sts evenly = 224-232-240-256-280-300 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size) - READ KNITTING TIP.
On round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 14-16-18-22-28-30 sts evenly = 210-216-222-234-252-270 sts.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 30-36-30-42-48-54 sts evenly = 180-180-192-192-204-216 sts.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 24-24-30-30-36-36 sts evenly = 156-156-162-162-168-180 sts.
On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 36-36-36-36-38-42 sts evenly = 120-120-126-126-130-138 sts.

ELEVATION AT THE BACK:
Insert 1 marker mid front. Beg mid back and work an elevation at the back on circular needle size 5 mm with grey as follows: K until 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts remain before marker at the front, turn and P until 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until 20-20-22-22-24-26 sts remain before marker at the front, turn and P until 20-20-22-22-24-26 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until 30-30-32-32-34-36 sts remain before marker, turn and P until 30-30-32-32-34-36 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until mid back.

NECK:
Switch to a short circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round with grey while inc 10 sts evenly in all sizes = 96-96-100-100-104-108 sts. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 2. When neck measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm, inc every other 2 P sts to 3 P sts = 108-108-112-112-117-121 sts. When neck measures 10-10-10-12-12-12 cm, inc the remaining 2 P sts to 3 P sts = 120-120-125-125-130-135 sts. When neck measures 12-12-12-14-14-14 cm, cast off with K over K and P over P.
