Knitting tension: 18 sts x 25 rows using 4.5mm needle in stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See diagram M.1. The diagram is seen from the right side.

Front piece: Cast on 119-128-137-146 sts loosely (inclusive of 1 seam st each side – all seam sts are knitted in garter sts) using needle size 4.5 and Vivaldi. Knit 4 rows in garter st (1st row = right side) and continue in M.1 with 1 seam st each side. When piece measures 14 cm, knit 4 rows in garter st (first row from the right side), at the same time adjusting number of sts to 118-124-132-142 on first row. Now continue in stocking st. When piece measures 30-31-32-34 cm cast off 1 st for armhole each side, at the same time diving the piece mid front for V-neck and finish each side separately. Put sts on the left part on a thread. Now dec for neck on every other row 1 st 7 times and on every 4th row 1 st 6-6-7-7 times. After all dec for armhole and neck have been made there are 45-48-51-56 sts left on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 48-50-52-55 cm. Put sts from thread back on needle and knit as right front. NB! Knit 1st row from mid front and begin by picking up 1 st in the first st from the other side and knit this together with 1st st on row (do this to avoid notches at the bottom of the V-neck).

Back piece: Cast on and knit as front piece. Cast off for armhole as described for front piece and continue until piece measures 46-48-50-53 cm. Cast of the middle 22-22-24-24 sts for neck and dec 1 st on each neck line on every other row 2 times = 45-48-51-56 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 48-50-52-55 cm.

Sleeve: Loosely cast on 56 sts for all sizes (inclusive of 1 seam st each side) on needles size 4.5mm with Vivaldi and knit 4 rows in garter st (1st row = right side). Now knit M.1 with 1 seam st each side. When piece measures 16 cm, knit 4 rows in garter st (first row from the right side), at the same time adjusting number of sts to 46-46-48-50 on first row. Now continue in stocking st. When piece measures 18 cm inc 1 st each side a total of 10-12-13-14 times as follows: Size S/M on every 6th row, Size M/L on every 4th row and 5th row alternately, Size XL on every 4th row, Size XXL on every 3rd and 4th row alternately = 66-70-74-78 sts. Cast off all sts when sleeve measures 43-42-41-39 cm.

Assembly: Sew right shoulder seam. Pick up approx 90 to 110 sts round the neck on needle 4.5 with Vivaldi. Knit 15 cm garter st and cast off loosely. To avoid the edge becoming too tight, make a yo approx every 8th st while casting off (cast off yo’s as sts). Sew left shoulder seam and continue up along the neck – sew neck together in the outer loop of the outermost st so that the seam doesn’t show when neck folds over.
Crochet a border round neck and sleeves using crochet hook size 3.5 and Cotton Viscose as follows: 1 dc, *skip 1-1.5 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 4 ch and 1 sl st in first dc from beginning of row. Set in the sleeves. Sew the sides and the sleeves seams together in the seam sts.
