Cast on 96-108-120 sts on needles size 3 mm with Karisma Superwash. Knit M.1 and increase on the last round as shown in diagram = 112-126-140 sts. Continue to knit M.2. Remember the knitting tension! When the piece measures 17-19-21 cm knit the 4 sts in each cable tog 2 by 2 = 96-108-120 sts.
Knit 3 rounds with K2, P2 and then knit the P2’s tog to P1 = 72-81-90 sts. Knit 3 rounds with K2, P1, and then knit the K2’s tog to K1 = 48-54-60 sts. Knit 3 rounds with K1, P1 and then knit all sts tog 2 by 2 = 24 - 27-30 sts. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, pull tight and sew the thread.

Work begins at the bottom of the front piece and you bind off at the bottom of the back piece, and knit the neck itself last.

Front piece: Cast on 42-46-50 sts on needles size 4.5 mm with Karisma Superwash and knit garter sts. Remember the knitting tension! When the piece measures 7-9-10 cm bind off the centre 14-16-18 sts for the neck. Knit each shoulder piece separately.
1st shoulder piece: = 14-15-16 sts. Continue in garter sts – at the same time bind off at the neck side on every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 3 times = 6-7-8 sts. When the piece measures 11-13-15 cm insert a marking thread (= the middle of the shoulder) – continue to measure from this point. On the next row cast on 2 new sts at the neck side and put sts on a thread.
2nd shoulder piece: Knit as the 1st shoulder piece.
Back piece: Put sts from one of the shoulder pieces back on needle, cast on 26-28-30 sts and put sts from the other shoulder piece on the same needle = 42-46-50 sts. Continue in garter sts. When the piece measures 11-13-15 cm from the shoulder, bind off.
Neck: Pick up approx 76-86 sts (divisible by 4) around the neck on double pointed needles size 3 mm. Purl 1 round, and Knit 1 round. At the same time inc number of sts evenly distributed on round to 92-98-102. Continue in Rib. When the neck measures 7-8-9 cm bind off in Rib.
