Back and front pieces:
Knit piece back and forth on circular needles from mid front. Pick up approx 208-240-288-320 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with 1 thread of each yarn quality. Then knit as follows (1st row = RS): 6 sts garter sts, (= front edge), M.1 over 36-44-56-64 sts (start from edge in diagram – start arrow does not count here), P12 sts, 4 first sts of M.1 (= mid side), P 12 sts, M.1 over 68-84-108-124 sts (see start arrow for various sizes), P12 sts, 4 first sts of M.1 (= mid side), P 12 sts, M.1 over 36-44-56-64 sts (see start arrow for various sizes) and 6 sts garter sts (= front edge). Continue as follows: When piece measures 9-10-11-12 cm dec 1 sts on each side of the 4 cable sts on each side – dec by P2 tog. Remember buttonhole – see explanation above! Repeat de on every 6th cm 8 times in total = 176-208-256-288 sts. 12 P sts on each side of cable have now been dec to 4 P sts. After last dec, piece measures approx 51-52-53-54 cm. Continue with 1 row garter sts (from RS) at the same time as dec 2 sts over each of the small cables and 4 sts over the large cables by knitting sts tog 2 by 2 (inc 50-58-74-82 sts in total) = 126-150-182-206 sts. Then knit M.2 (1st row = WS) – see start arrow for various sizes when bubbles are knit on 6th row! After M.2 knit 1 row garter sts at the same time as inc 50-58-74-82 sts evenly (do not inc on front edges) = 176-208-256-288 sts. P1 row back.
Knit next row as follows: 6 sts garter sts, (= front edge), M.3 over 36-44-56-64 sts (start from edge in diagram – start arrow does not count here), P4 sts, 4 first sts of M.3 (= mid side), P 4 sts, M.3 over 68-84-108-124 sts (see start arrow for various sizes), P4 sts, 4 first sts of M.3 (= mid side), P 4 sts, M.3 over 36-44-56-64 sts (see start arrow for various sizes) and 6 sts garter sts (= front edge).
Read next entire section before knitting commences!
Neckline: When piece measures 57-58-59-60 cm dec 1 sts to shape neckline on each side mid front – see Decreasing tips on every 2nd row 9-11-11-13 times in total and then on every 4th row 5 times in total.
Armhole: At the same time when piece measures 60-61-62-63 cm cast off 4 sts over cable on each side of armhole.
Complete each piece separately.

Back piece: = 76-92-116-132 sts. Knit pattern as before at the same time as casting off for armhole on each side on every other row: 3 sts 0-0-2-3 times, 2 sts 0-2-4-5 times and 1 sts 1-3-5-4 times = 74-78-78-86 sts. Continue pattern – knit outermost sts on each side in garter sts until completed. When piece measures 77-79-81-83 cm dec middle 24-28-28-32 sts to 16-20-20-22 sts as follows: Dec cables of 4 sts to 2 sts and dec cables of 2 sts to 1 sts. On next row cast off middle 16-20-20-22 sts. Continue pattern over 25-25-25-27 sts on each shoulder. When piece measures 79-81-83-85 cm knit sts tog 2 by 2 over all cables = 18-18-18-19 sts left on shoulder. On next row cast off all sts loosely.

Right front piece: Continue dec for neckline– at the same time cast off for armhole at side like back piece. There are 31-31-31-33 sts left on row when all dec has been completed. When piece measures 79-81-83-85 cm dec over cables like back piece = 24-24-24-25 sts. On next row cast off outermost 18-18-18-19 sts for shoulder = 6 garter sts left on needle. Knit garter sts over these sts for 6-7-7-8 cm, slip sts onto 1 stitch holder or safety pin (edge is to be sewn onto back piece afterwards).

Left front piece: Knit like right piece but reversed.
Sleeve: Knit piece back and forth on circular needles. Cast on 58-58-62-62 sts (incl 1 edge sts on each side) on needle size 6 mm with 1 thread of each yarn quality. Then knit as follows (1st row = RS): 1 edge sts, P1, M.3 over 54-54-58-58 sts, P1 and 1 edge sts. When piece measures 10 cm knit 1 row garter sts from RS at the same time as dec 14-14-18-18 sts evenly = 44-44-44-44 sts. Now knit M.2, 1st row = WS (start from edge, arrows only concern back and front pieces) with 1 edge sts on each side. After M.2 knit 1 row garter sts from RS at the same time inc 12-14-16-18 sts evenly = 56-58-60-62 sts. P1 row back.
Continue as follows: 1 edge sts, P 5-6-7-8, M.1 over 44 sts, P5-6-7-8 and 1 edge sts. When piece measures 16 cm inc 1 sts on each side on every 6 -6 -4.5, 3.5 cm 6-6-7-8 time sin total = -68-70-74-78 sts – P new sts. When piece measures 51-49-46-44 cm (shorter measurement in larger sizes due to longer sleeve top) cast off to shape sleeve top on each side on every other row as follows: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-3-3-3 times and 1 sts 1-1-4-6 times, continuing cast off 2 sts on each side until piece measures 57 cm, then cast off 3 sts 1 time on each side. Piece measures approx 58 cm in all sizes, cast off remaining sts.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Sew 2 garter sts edge tog from each front piece with mattress sts and sew edge onto neckline neatly on back piece – stretch garter sts edge slightly when sewing it on so neck does not expand. Sew sleeve seams within 1 edge st and sew sleeves onto back and front pieces. Sew in buttons.
