GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st by P 2 tog. Dec alternately at beg and end of P section.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

RAGLAN:
Dec 2 sts in every transition between body and sleeves.
Dec as follows from RS:
K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows from WS:
P 2 twisted tog, P 2 (marker is between these sts), P 2 tog.

KNITTING TIP:
If knitting gauge is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan dec will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra row without dec evenly spaced between dec.

BUTTONHOLES:
Dec for buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = K tog 2nd and 3rd st from mid front, then make 1 YO. Dec for buttonholes when piece measures:

When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'', work next row (from RS) as follows: Work 43-46-49-54-59-64 sts, bind off the next 6 sts, work 76-82-88-98-108-118 sts, bind off the next 6 sts and work the remaining 43-46-49-54-59-64 sts. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. Work 1 ridge, then work in stockinette st. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve).

When piece measures 49-48-48-47-46-46 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-19"-18½"-18"-18" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap), bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve = 54-56-60-64-68-70 sts. Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:

Dec differently on body and sleeve.
RAGLAN SLEEVE:
Dec every other row 16-17-17-18-18-19 times, then every row 4-4-6-7-9-9 times (= 20-21-23-25-27-28 times in total).
RAGLAN BODY:
Dec every 4th row 4-2-0-0-0-0 times, every other row 11-16-19-21-19-16 times, then every row 0-0-2-0-7-15 times (= 15-18-21-21-26-31 times in total).
After all dec are done, 130-130-130-150-150-150 sts remain on needle. On next row dec 2 sts over every cable in A.1 = 114-114-114-132-132-132 sts. Work 2 ridges over all sts, on first row dec 20-16-12-26-22-18 sts evenly = 94-98-102-106-110-114 sts. Bind off.
