PULLOVER:

Crochet gauge: 18 ch = approx. 14 cm.

Rib: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from * - *.

Pullover: Knit the collar first, and then crochet the pullover down from bottom edge of collar. Loosely cast on 48-52-56 sts on double-pointed needles; join and knit rib – see instructions above. When the piece measures 14-14-16 cm knit 2 rows garter st then bind off very loosely.
Ch-loops: Crochet as follows – crochet row 1 in the bound-off edge.
Row 1: 1 sl st in 1st st, * ch 18 (= approx. 14 cm), skip over 1 st, 1 sc in the next st *, repeat * - * around row and end with ch 18 and 1 sl st in the sl st at beginning of row = 24-26-28 ch-loops.
Row 2: Sl st to center of 1st ch-loop, * ch 18, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * and end with ch 18 and 1 sl st in center of 1st ch-loop at start of row (24-26-28 ch-loops on row).
Repeat row 2 until there are 4-4-5 rows of ch-loops (or to desired length to armhole – try on the garment to determine length), cut yarn.
Lay piece flat and count ch-loops – there will be 7-8-8 ch-loops for front and back and 5-5-6 ch-loops at each side for each sleeves – sew a stitch in each transition to hold pieces together.

Sleeve: Crochet sleeve in the round over the 5-5-6 ch-loops at each side as follows:
Row 1: start with 1 sc in the 1st ch-loop, * ch 18, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * a total of 4-4-5 times and finish with ch 18 and 1 sl st in 1st sc at start of row = 5-5-6 ch-loops.
Row 2: Sl st to center of 1st ch-loop, * ch 18, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * and finish with ch 18 and 1 sl st in the 1st ch-loop at start of row (5-5-6 ch-loops on row).
Repeat row 2 until there are 4-5-5 rows of ch-loops (= 8-9-10 rows from the collar) or to desired length – try on the garment to be sure of length.
Cuff: Pick up/cast on sts for cuff on double-pointed needles as follows:
Size S/M + L/XL: Pick up 1 st in the center of 1st ch-loop, * cast on 5 new sts, pick up 1 st in the center of the next ch-loop, cast on 6 new sts, pick up 1 st in the center of the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * a total of 2 times and then cast on 5 new sts.
Size XXL: Pick up 1 st in the center of the 1st ch-loop, * cast on 5 new sts, pick up 1 st in the center of the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * a total of 5 times and then cast on 5 new sts.
There are now 32-32-36 sts. Join and place a marker at the join. P 1 row and K 1 row, then knit rib. When cuff measures 18 cm from cast on edge, bind off all sts very loosely in rib. Repeat for the other sleeve.

Body: = 14-16-16 ch-loops. Continue in the round as follows:
Row 1: Start at one side with 1 sc in the top of the 1st ch-loop, * ch 18, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * a total of 13-15-15 times and end with ch 18 and 1 sl st in 1st sc at start of row = 14-16-16 ch-loops.
Row 2: Sl st to center of 1st ch-loop, * ch 18, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat * - * and finish with ch 18 and 1 sl st in the 1st ch-loop at the start of row (14-16-16 ch-loops on row).
Repeat row 2 until there are 11-12-12 rows of ch-loops (= 15-16-17 rows from the collar) or to desired length – try the garment on to be sure of length.
