Garter st, in the round: K 1 round, P 1 round.

Front and back piece: Knitted in the round. Cast on 270-300-330-360 sts on circular needle size 4 mm (80 cm). Work 2 rounds stocking st and 2 rounds garter st. Now continue in reverse stocking st until piece measures 13 cm. Remember the knitting tension. Now work 1 round, at the same time dec 18-20-22-24 sts evenly = 252-280-308-336 sts. Continue in Rib, K4/P10. When piece measures 19 cm dec 1 st in each P section on every 7-7-11-23 cm a total of 4-4-3-2 times (18-20-22-24 dec per round) = 180-200-242-288 sts. Insert a Marking Thread (MT) each side: 1 at the beg of round and 1 after 90-100-121-144 sts. When piece measures 46-48-50-51 cm work next round as follows: continue with K4/P6-6-7-8 on the first 80-90-110-132 sts (back piece), cast off the next 10-10-11-12 sts, continue with K4/P6-6-7-8 on the next 80-90-110-132 sts (front piece) and cast off the last 10-10-11-12 sts. Put the 80-90-110-132 sts on back piece on a thread.

Yoke: Measure piece from here! Loosely cast on 50-50-55-60 sts at one side for sleeve, put sts from back piece back on needle and loosely cast on 50-50-55-60 sts for sleeve the other side = 260-280-330-384 sts. Work 4 rows garter sts on the 50-50-55-60 sleeve sts each side (work remaining sts in Rib as before). Now work Rib, K4/P6-6-7-8, on all sts. When piece measures 5-6-5-3 cm dec 1 st in each P section on every 2.5 cm a total of 6-6-7-8 times = 104-112-120-128 sts (26-28-30-32 dec per round) – change to circular needle size 40 cm as number of sts decreases. Work 2 rounds garter st and cast off. Piece measures approx 66-69-72-74 cm from casting on row.
