Gauge: 17 sts x 22 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Decreasing tips (for raglan): Dec as follows from right side:
Start 4 sts before the marker: K 2 tog, K 4 (the marker is in the center of these 4 sts), slip 1 as if to knit, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows from wrong side:
Start 4 sts before the marker: P 2 tog, twisting sts, P 4 (the marker is in the center of these 4 sts), P 2 tog. (If it is too difficult to twist the sts, sl them, return to left needle 1 by 1, twisting each, and then P 2 tog).

BODY
Cast on 160-184-208-232 sts on circular needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows stockinette st, then establish rib as follows: P 1, *K 6, P 6*, repeat from *-* over 72-84-96-108 sts, K 6, P 1, place a marker (= side), P 1, *K 6, P 6*, repeat from *-* over 72-84-96-108 sts, K 6, P 1. Continue the rib as established. When the piece measures 10-15-15-15 cm and 20-30-30-30 cm inc 1 st at each side of each marker – P the increased sts – = 168-192-216-240 sts. When the piece measures 32-40-41-42 cm bind off 12 sts at each side for armhole (= K 3, P 6, K 3) = 72-84-96-108 sts remain on Front and Back. Lay piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 48-48-60-60 sts on double-pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows stockinette st, then knit rib (P 3, K 3) over all sts. When the piece measures 8-10-10-10 cm, change to * K 6, P 6 * rib as on Body – start at marker with P 3 so that the marker is centered in a P 6. When the piece measures 10-13-13-11 cm inc 1 st on both sides of the P 6 containing the marker every 3-3-3-3.5 cm a total of 12 times (knit the increased sts in the rib as you go along, i.e P first 6 inc sts, K next 6 sts) = 72-72-84-84 sts. When the piece measures 47-49-50-52 cm bind off 6 sts each side of marker = 60-60-72-72 sts remain. Lay piece aside and knit a second sleeve.


Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needles as Body where you bound off for armholes = 264-288-336-360 sts. Put a marker in each transition between front, back and sleeves = 4 markers. Knit 0-1-1-1 row before raglan shaping begins.

Raglan shaping: Dec 1 st at each side of all markers (= 8 decs) – see Decreasing tips above. Dec every other row 21-24-20-25 times and every row 3-0-10-5 times.
At the same time when the piece measures 49-59-61-64 cm put the 8-20-20-32 sts at center front on a st holder for the neck and knit back and forth. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times.
After all raglan and neck shaping is complete 56-68-68-80 sts remain and the piece measures approx. 56-66-68-71 cm to shoulder.

Neckband: Pick up approx. 16 sts for smallest size, 28 to 40 sts for other sizes at front neck (incl. sts on st holder) = 72 sts for smallest size, 96 to 120 sts for other sizes; join and place a marker at the join. P 1 row, K 1 row and P 1 row, then K 1 row, decreasing evenly distributed to 72-84-90-96 sts. Then knit rib (K 3, P 3) until the collar measures 10-10-12-12 cm. Bind off in rib. Fold the rib in half to wrong side and stitch in place.

Assembly: Sew opening under the sleeve.
