BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 83-91-99-107-115-123 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Alaska. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Work A.1 with 1 st in garter st in each side of piece. Repeat A.1 3 times in total vertically. Work A.2 as follows (first row = WS): 1 st in garter st, A.2 until 2 sts remain (= 10-11-12-13-14-15 times), work first st in A.2 (so make it the same in both sides of piece), finish with 1 st in garter st. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3 over A.2 (first row = RS). 1 st in garter st, A.3 until 2 sts remain, work first st of A.3, finish with 1 st in garter st. Work sts in garter st in each side of piece in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Work A.3 until piece measures 20-21-22-22-23-23 cm / 8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9" (adjust so that last row is from RS). K 1 row from WS. Then work in stockinette st with 1 st in garter st in each side for 7 cm / 2¾'', adjust so that last row is from RS. P 1 row from RS AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st = 82-90-98-106-114-122 sts. Work A.7 with 1 st in garter st in each side of piece. Then work PATTERN-1 - see explanation above. When piece measures 43-44-45-46-47-48 cm / 17''-17¼''-17¾''-18''-18½''-19'', bind off 3-3-5-5-7-7 sts in each side for armholes at beg of the 2 next rows. When armholes have been bind off and pattern-1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 77-85-89-97-101-109 sts on needle. Work A.3 until 5-5-1-1-5-5 sts remain, work the first 5-5-1-1-5-5 sts of A.3. Continue pattern until finished measurements. When piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'', adjust so that next row is from RS, slip the middle 25-25-27-27-29-29 sts on a stitch holder for neck (= 26-30-31-35-36-40 sts remain on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 25-29-30-34-35-39 sts remain on the shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''. Work the other shoulder the same way.

Now finish each shoulder separately. Bind off for neck as follows: bind off 2 sts on every row from neck 3 times, then bind off 1 st on every row from neck 2 times = 25-29-30-34-35-39 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''. Work the other shoulder the same way.

Bind off when piece measures 51-50-50-49-48-47 cm / 20"-19 3/4"-19 3/4"-19 1/4"-19"-18½" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Make another sleeve the same way.
