Ridge (Back and forth on needle): 1 ridge of garter st = 2 rows. 1st row K, 2nd row K.

Decrease tip (for the neck): All dec is on RS. Dec inside the 3 band sts, which are worked as follows from edge: 1 st garter st, K 1, P 1. There are 2 types of decrease upwards, 1 with holes, 1 without.

1st decrease = dec with holes: Dec as follows 3 sts before edge sts: 1 YO, K 3 tog. Dec as follows after edge sts: Slip 1 st, K 2 tog and lift the slip st over, 1 YO.
2nd decrease = dec without holes: Dec as follows 2 sts before edge sts: K 2 tog. Dec as follows after edge sts: Slip 1 st, K 1 and lift the slip st over.

Right front piece: Cast on 36-40-43-46 sts (incl. 1 edge st in the side and 3 band sts towards mid front) on needle size 4.5 mm with 1 strand Cotton Viscose + 1 strand Safran. Work 2 ridges, change to needle size 5.5 mm. Continue with stocking st, but 3 sts towards mid front are worked as follows from the edge (seen from RS): 1 st garter st, K 1, P 1. Remember knitting tension! Insert marker thread 16-17-18-19 sts from mid front. When the piece measures 4-5-6-7 cm work as follows after marker thread – seen from RS: K 2 tog, 1 YO (the remaining sts in stocking st), repeat this every 4th row upwards, 5 times = 5 holes upwards). At the same time, when the piece measures 5-6-7-8 cm dec 2 sts evenly on right side of marker – seen from RS. Repeat this dec when piece measures 9-10-11-12 cm and 13-14-15-16 cm = 30-34-37-40 sts. After the 5th hole is completed, work M.1 so that the pattern is the same on both sides of the row of holes. After M.1 work 4 holes upwards above each other – work the holes in the same way as below M1. Then work stocking st to full length (3 sts towards mid front worked as described earlier). At the same time when the piece measures 17-18-19-20 cm inc with 2 new sts evenly spread on left side of marker – seen from RS. Repeat the increase when the piece measures 22-23-24-25 cm and 27-28-29-30 cm = 36-40-43-46 sts. Read the following description before continuing!

When the piece measures 33-34-36-37 cm cast off 3 sts in side for armhole. Continue to cast off for armhole every 2nd row: 2 sts 0-1-2-3 times and 1 st 3-4-5-5 times. At the same time, when the piece measures 34-35-36-37 cm, dec for the neck towards mid front, inside the 3 edge sts, as described in decrease tips. Repeat 1st and 2nd decrease every 2nd row upwards 9-9-9-9 times. Continue with 1st decrease every 4th row 3-3-4-4 times. There are now 12-12-13-13 sts dec for the neck and 6-9-12-14 sts cast off for the armhole = 18-19-18-19 sts remaining for the shoulder. Continue piece while at the same time, every 4th row working a hole over the others along the neck – work as follows (from mid front): 1 st garter st, K 1, P 1, slip 1 st, K 1 and lift the slip st over, cast on 1 st. Cast off when the piece measures 52-54-56-58 cm.

When piece measures 33-34-36-37 cm cast off for the armholes in each side as for front pieces = 58-60-60-62 sts. When piece measures 50-52-54-56 cm cast off the middle 20-20-22-22 sts – cast these sts from WS with K sts. Continue to dec 1 st on next row towards neck – see decrease tips = 18-19-18-19 sts remaining on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 52-54-56-58 cm.
