Gauge: 15 sts x 22 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"].

Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.

Front: Cast on 75 (79-85) sts with 1 strand brown Paris + 1 strand khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands). Knit 4 rows garter st. Change to 1 strand dark beige Paris + 1 strand khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands) and knit stockinette st, keeping the 4 sts at each edge in garter st until the work measures 8 (9-10) cm [3-1/8" (3.5" - 4")]. Knit the next two rows as follows: 3 sts at each edge in garter st and the remaining sts in stockinette st. Knit the next two rows as follows: 2 sts at each edge in garter st and the remaining sts in stockinette st. Knit the next two rows as follows: 1 st at each edge in garter st and the remaining sts in stockinette st. After this, knit all sts in stockinette st, increasing 1 st at each edge for seam on the next row (knit this edge st in garter st throughout) = 77 (81-87) sts.
When the work measures 19 (19-20) cm [7.5" (7.5" - 7-7/8")] change to 1 strand moss green Paris + 1 strand khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands). When the work measures 28 cm [11"] knit the center st in garter st on the next two rows and the remaining sts in stockinette st. On the next two rows knit 3 sts of garter st in the center, on the following two rows knit 5 sts of garter st; continue increasing in this way until 9 center sts are knit in garter st.
Knit 4 rows with 9 sts of garter st, then bind off the center st and knit the rest of each part separately = 38 (40-43) sts each side. Continue to knit the 4 edge sts at the center front in garter st.
When the work measures 33 (34-36) cm [13" (13-3/8" - 14-1/8")] bind off for armholes every other row: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 (1-2) times, 1 st 1 (2-2) times = 28 (29-30) sts (keep the armhole edge st in garter st throughout). When the work measures 46 (48-50) cm [18-1/8" (18-7/8" - 19.75")] put 8 (9-9) sts at the center front edge on a stitch holder for the neck.
Bind off at the neck edge every other row: 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 2 times. Bind off when the work measures 54 (56-58) cm [21.25" (22" - 22-7/8")].

Back: Cast on and knit as for front. When the work measures 33 (34-36) cm [13" (13-3/8" - 14-1/8")] bind off for armholes as on the front = 57 (59-61) sts. When the work measures 50 (52-54) cm [19.75" (20.5" - 21.25")], put the center 25 (27-27) sts on a st holder for the neck. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 1 time. Bind off when the work measures 54 (56-58) cm [21.25" (22" - 22-7/8")].

Sleeves: Cast on 36 (38-40) sts (including 1 edge st at each side which is knit in garter st throughout) with 1 strand of brown Paris + 1 strand of khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands). Knit 4 rows garter st. Change to 1 strand of dark beige Paris + 1 strand of khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands) and knit stockinette st. When the work measures 6 cm [2-3/8"] inc 1 st at each side 13 (14-13) times:
Sizes S+L: alternately every 6th and 7th row
Size M: every 6th row
= 62 (66-66) sts. At the same time, when the work measures 10 (12-14) cm [4" (4.75" - 5.5")] change to 1 strand of moss green Paris + 1 strand of khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands). When the work measures 48 cm [19.25"] bind off for sleeve caps at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 4 (5-6) times, 2 sts 3 times, 3 sts 1 time, bind off. The work measures approx. 58 (59-60) cm [22-7/8" (23.25" - 23-5/8")].

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams, and sew the sleeves to the body. Sew the sleeve seam and side seam in one down to the split. Put sts from the stitch holders at the neck on needles and pick up sts so you have a total of approx. 74-80 sts on the needles - use 1 strand of brown Paris + 1 strand of khaki green Cotton Viscose (= 2 strands). Knit 4 rows garter st, bind off loosely.
