Garter st, back and forth on needle: K all rows

Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS side.

Decreasing tip: Because of the dec, number of sts will not always fit the pattern. Work sts not fitting into M.1 and M.2 in stocking st.

Increasing tip (applies to sleeve): Inc by making 1 YO between 2 sts. On return row work YO into back of loop in order to avoid a hole.

Back piece: Cast on 86-94-102-118-126-142 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on needle size 4 mm. P 1 row from WS and then work 4 rows garter st – see above. Remember the knitting tension! Now continue in M.2 with 1 edge st each side. (NOTE! No dec at sides on back piece, only on front pieces). When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm cast off 3 sts each side for armhole and continue to dec to shape the armhole each side on every other row – see Decreasing tip: 2 sts 1-2-3-6-7-10 times and 1 st 0-1-2-3-4-5 times = 76-78-80-82-84-86 sts. When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm cast off the middle 26-26-28-28-30-30 sts for neck and dec 1 st on neckline on next row = 24-25-25-26-26-27 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm.

Left front piece: Cast on 42-50-50-58-66-74 sts (includes 1 edge st at side and 1 edge st towards mid front) on needle size 4 mm. P 1 row from WS and work 4 rows garter st. Now continue in M.1 as follows (from RS): 1 edge st, M.1 on the next 40-48-48-56-64-72 sts and finish row with 1 edge st. Continue in pattern like this. At the same time when piece measures 6 cm dec 1 st at side – see Decreasing tip – on every 2-1.5-2-2-1.5-1.5 cm a total of 13-17-14-14-19-19 times = 29-33-36-44-47-55 sts. When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm cast off for armhole at side as described for back piece = 24-25-25-26-26-27 sts left on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm.

Right front piece: Cast on and work like left front piece, but mirrored, i.e. work M.2 instead of M.1.

Sleeve: Cast on 42-44-46-48-50-52 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on needle size 4 mm. Work garter st back and forth on needle until piece measures 3 cm. Now continue in stocking st, at the same time inc 41-43-45-47-49-51 sts evenly on first row – see Increasing tip = 83-87-91-95-99-103 sts. When piece measures 15 cm dec 1 st each side on every 2 cm a total of 7-6-6-5-4-4 times = 69-75-79-85-91-95 sts. When piece measures 30-29-29-27-25-23 cm (less on the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder) dec to shape the sleeve cap each side on every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 4 times, 1 st 0-1-2-5-7-11 times, then 2 sts each side until piece measures 36-36-37-37-37-38 cm. Now dec 3 sts each side 1 time and cast off remaining sts. Sleeve measures approx 37-37-38-38-38-39 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.

Front band and neckline: Worked back and forth on circular needle. Pick of sts for front band and neckline on needle size 3.5 mm as follows (beg at bottom of right front piece): 155 to 184 sts along right front piece, 35 to 43 sts round neckline at back and 155 to 184 sts along left front piece = 345 to 411 sts (number of sts must be divisible by 6+3). Work 4 rows garter st (first row = WS). Now work next row as follows from WS: 3 garter sts, *K3/P3*, repeat from *-* and finish with K3 and 3 garter sts. When Rib measures 7 cm make 4-4-4-5-5-5 buttonholes evenly distributed on right front band. 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on return row. Place the lower buttonhole approx 25 cm from bottom edge, and the remaining with approx 7 cm between each. When front band measures approx 8 cm cast off in Rib.

Assembly: Set in sleeves and sew side and sleeve seams inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons.
