Moss st: First row: K1, P1. Second row: P over K and K over P. Repeat second row. Bobble: Work from RS. Inc to 3 sts in 1 st, work 3 rows stocking st on these 3 sts. K tog the 3 sts to 1 st.
Buttonholes: Make buttonholes on right front piece when piece measures: 1-1-1 cm, 10-11-11, 20-21-21, 30-32-32, 40-42-43 and 50-52-54 cm. 1 buttonhole = K tog 3rd and 4th st from mid front and cast on 1 new st on return row.

Cast on 216-220-228 sts on needle size 3 mm and work 4 cm moss st. Change to needle size 4 mm and continue in M.1 with 6 moss st each side towards mid front for front bands, at the same time inc 20-32-40 sts evenly on first row = 236-252-268 sts. After M.1 continue in M.2. Remember the knitting tension and buttonholes on right front piece! When piece measures 44-46-48 cm work next row as follows from RS: 60-64-68 sts = front piece, cast off 4 sts for armhole, 108-116-124 sts = back piece, cast off 4 sts for armhole, 60-64-68 sts = front piece. Now complete each piece separately.

Front piece: = 60-64-68 sts. Dec to shape the armhole on every other row: 2 sts 1-3-3 times and 1 st 2-2-4 times = 56-56-58 sts. When piece measures 51-53-55 cm cast off the 6 front sts and dec to shape the neckline on every other row: 1 st 4 times, then on every 3rd row: 1 st 13 times. At the same time when piece measures 54-56-58 cm work M.3, but work the diagram from top down. After M.3 work 2 rows moss st and 1 row stocking st. Cast off, piece measures approx 71-73-75 cm.

Back piece: = 108-116-124 sts. Dec for armhole and continue in pattern as described for front piece = 100-100-104 sts.

At the same time after the moss st inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 25-25-25 times as follows: size S on every 3rd and 4th round alternately, size M + L on every 4th round = 108-108-108 sts (incorporate inc sts in pattern as you go along). After M.1 continue in M.2. When piece measures 44-45-45 cm cast off 6 sts mid under arm and complete piece back and forth on needle. Dec to shape the sleeve cap on every other row 4 sts 7 times and cast off. Piece measures approx 50-51-51 cm.
