Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.3. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS side.
Moss st: First row: K1, P1. Second row: P over K and K over P. Repeat second row.

Front and back piece: Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 164 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with off-white and work 3 cm moss st. Change to needle size 5 mm and continue in M.1, at the same time inc 32 sts evenly on first row = 196 sts. After M.1 continue in off-white until piece measures 20 cm and now work M.2. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 25 cm work next row as follows from RS: 47 sts = front piece, cast off 4 sts for armhole, 94 sts = back piece, cast off 4 sts for armhole, 47 sts = front piece. Now complete each piece separately.

Front piece: = 47 sts. Dec to shape the armhole on every other row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 43 sts. After M.2 work M.1 and then continue in off-white until piece measures 42 cm. Now work M.2, M.3 and then continue in off-white. At the same time when piece measures 42 cm dec to shape the neckline towards mid front on every other row: 6 sts 1 time, 2 sts 4 times, 1 st 3 times. Cast off when piece measures 52 cm.

Back piece: = 94 sts. Continue in pattern and dec for armhole as described for front piece = 86 sts. When piece measures 50 cm cast off the middle 30 sts for neck and dec 2 sts on neckline on next row Cast off as described for front piece.

Sleeve: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 40 sts on double pointed needle size 3.5 mm with off-white and work 3 cm moss st. Change to needle size 5 mm, continue in M.1 and inc 6 sts evenly on first row = 46 sts (make sure to place a pattern repeat mid upper sleeve). At the same time after the moss st inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 23 times on every 3rd and 4th round alternately = 92 sts (incorporate inc sts in pattern as you go along). After M.1 continue in off-white. When piece measures 33 cm slip 6 sts mid under arm on a thread and continue back and forth on needle. Slip sts on a thread each side on every other row: 6 sts 4 times. Now slip all sts back on needles and continue in M.2 in the round on all sts. Continue inc mid under arm. After M.2 work M.3, then 1 round off-white and cast off. Sleeve measures approx 51 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Pick up approx 75 sts along left front piece on needle size 3.5 mm with off-white and work 3 cm moss st back and forth on needle, cast off. Repeat along right front piece, but after 1 cm make 5 buttonholes evenly distributed on row. 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on return row. Pick up approx 92 to 96 sts round neckline on needle size 3.5 mm with off-white and work 3 cm moss st back and forth on needle, cast off. Now crochet a border along bottom edge, sleeve edges and neckline on crochet hook size 3 mm with off-white as follows: 1 dc, *3 ch, 1 tr in first ch, skip 2 st, 1 dc*, repeat from *-*.
