RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Worked from the side towards mid front, back and forth on circular needle. NOTE: make all measurements from cast on row. READ ALL OF THIS SECTION BEFORE KNITTING IT! Cast on 31-34-36-38-41-43 sts on needle size 3 mm with Fabel. K 1 row from WS. Insert a marker in 2nd st at the right side of piece (as seen from RS). Row 1 = WS. Work garter st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on row 2 (= RS) inc 1 st on each side of st with marker, and repeat the inc on every other row a total of 53-58-62-67-74-82 times – inc by making 1 YO, K YO on return row. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on row 2 cast on new sts at the left side of piece (as seen from RS) as follows:
on every 6th row: 2 sts 1-2-2-2-2-3 times, then
on every 4th row: 2 sts 1-2-3-4-6-8 times, then
on every other row: 2 sts 1-1-1-4-4-5 times, then cast on 40-38-38-33-31-26 sts 1 time.
AT THE SAME TIME on row 4 inc 1 st at the right side of piece (as seen from RS) and repeat the inc on every 8 row a total of 16 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 18-20-22-23-26-28 cm cast on 14-14-14-17-17-17 new sts for collar at the left side of piece (as seen from RS). When these sts have been cast on continue with shortened rows as follows (row 1 = WS): * 4 rows on all sts, 2 rows on the top 60-64-66-68-70-72 sts on the left side of piece (as seen from RS) *, repeat from *-*. REMEMBER INCREASES! When piece measures 22-24-26-28-31-34 cm – increases on each side of st with marker are now complete – slip sts to the left of st with marker + st with marker (= 143-153-161-174-186-199 sts) on a stitch holder. Insert a new marker in piece. Now work next row on sts on the right side of piece as follows: *K2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* and finish with K2. Continue in garter st on all sts – continue inc on the right side of piece = 70-75-79-84-91-99 sts left on row when inc are complete. When piece measures 10-9-8-7-5-3 cm from marker cast off these 70-75-79-84-91-99 sts sts. Pick up 24-22-20-16-12-7 sts towards mid front and slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 167-175-181-190-198-206 sts. Now work all sts (no shortened rows) for front band. K 1 row from WS, and work next row as follows from RS and bottom edge: K 24-22-20-16-12-7 sts, * K2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* and finish with K2. Continue in garter st. When front band measures 2 cm make BUTTONHOLES – see above – and cast off when front band measures 4 cm.

When piece measures 47-47-46-46-45-43 cm – less for the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder – cast off for sleeve cap each side at the beg of every row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 4-4-5-5-5-6 times, 1 st 3-4-4-6-7-9 times, then 2 sts each side until piece measures 54-55-55-56-56-57 cm, now cast off 3 sts each side 1 time and cast off remaining sts.
