REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm make buttonhole on right front band – SEE ABOVE!
When piece measures 16-17-20 (23-25) cm work 3 rows garter st on all sts (first row = WS).

When piece measures 5 cm inc 1 st on each side of marker on every 10-8-6 (8-7) round a total of 4-6-8 (9-12) times = 46-52-58 (62-68) sts. When piece measures approx 16-18-20 (25-29) cm P 1 round, K 1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME on last round cast off 8-8-8 (10-10) sts mid under sleeve (= 4-4-4 (5-5) sts on each side of marker) = 38-44-50 (52-58) sts left on round.

NOW READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CONTINUING!
RAGLAN: K 1 row from WS and then continue in garter st on all sts. Now dec for raglan as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): 1 st on each side of all markers (= 8 dec) – SEE DECREASING TIP!

Work 3 rounds stocking st, and repeat the dec on next round with 1 less st between each dec (i.e. K tog every 5th and 6th st). Repeat the dec on every other round another 4 times with 1 less st between each dec = 14-15-16 (17-18) sts. Change to double pointed needles when sts no longer fit circular needle. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten. Fold the bottom 5-5-5 (6-6) cm double towards RS and fasten.

Continue in garter st until piece measures 40-46-50 (56-62) cm. Now work 2 cm stocking st on all sts and cast off.

LEFT LEG:

Sew seams on the inside of legs inside 1 edge st. NOTE: sew the bottom 4-5 cm with seam on the outside so that seam doesn’t show when edge is folded towards RS. Sew pants tog from mid front to mid back inside 1 edge st. Fold the 2 cm stocking st at waist double towards WS and fasten, leave an opening for the elastic. Thread through the elastic. Fold edges at bottom of legs towards RS.

Now keep the first 18-18-20 (20-22) sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining 22-22-24 (24-26) sts on a stitch holder = upper foot. Work 3-3½-4 (4-4½) cm stocking st on heel sts. Insert a marker in piece and now dec for heel – SEE ABOVE. After heel dec pick up 8-9-10 (11-12) sts on either side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needles = 46-48-54 (56-60) sts.
