Back: Cast on 87-95-103-111-119 sts on smaller needles with white. Knit 2 rows garter st, change to larger needles and stockinette st for 8-8-9-9-10 cm - on the last row dec 8 sts evenly distributed on the row = 79-87-95-103-111 sts. Continue as follows (right side row): K 1 (edge st), Pattern 1 - start at appropriate arrow on the chart - over 36-40-44-48-52 sts, then Pattern 2 (= 5 sts), Pattern 3 over 36-40-44-48-52 sts and K 1 (edge st).
When the piece measures 14-14-15-15-16 cm inc 1 st at each side every 4 cm a total of 4 times = 87-95-103-111-119 sts - knit the increased sts in the pattern as you go along.
When the piece measures 31-32-33-34-35 cm bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 3-4-5-6-6 times = 75-77-79-81-85 sts. When the piece measures 48-50-52-54-56 cm bind off the center 29 sts for the neck - bind off with purl sts from right side so that there is 1 row of reverse stockinette st at the neckline. Then dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 2 times = 21-22-23-24-26 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm.

Left front: Cast on 46-50-54-58-62 sts on smaller needles with white. Knit 2 rows garter st, change to larger needles and stockinette st but keep 3 sts at the center front edge in seed st. When piece measures 9 cm dec 4 sts evenly distributed on the row, and at the same time cast on 4 new sts at the center front for button band = 46-50-54-58-62 sts.

When the piece measures 14-14-15-15-16 cm inc 1 st at the side every 4 cm a total of 4 times - knit the increased sts in the pattern as you go along = 50-54-58-62-66 sts.
When the piece measures 31-32-33-34-35 cm bind off for armhole at the side as on back.
At the same time when the piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-38 cm - adjust to end after a complete repeat of Pattern 5 - knit and bind off for the neck following Pattern 6A (continue the pattern as before over the remaining sts) = 21-22-23-24-26 sts remain on shoulder. Continue with Pattern 6B (knit the remaining sts in the pattern as before). When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm bind off all sts.

Right front: Cast on and knit the same as the left but knit Pattern 7 instead of Pattern 5. Establish pattern as follows beginning from center front edge: 4 sts seed st, Pattern 7 over 41-45-49-53-57 sts, K 1 (edge st). Make 6 buttonholes along buttonband - see instructions above.
Bind off for armhole as on left front. At the same time when the piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-38 cm - adjust to match left front - knit and bind off for the neck following Pattern 8A (continue the pattern as before over the remaining sts) = 21-22-23-24-26 sts remain on shoulder.

When sleeve measures 15-13-12-11-10 cm bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-4-4-4-3 times, 1 st 0-0-2-3-7 times, then bind off 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 19-19-20-20-21 cm and then bind off 3 sts 1 time. The piece measures 20-20-21-21-22 cm, bind off.
