----------------------------------------------------------

Front piece: Work back and forth with circular needle. Cast on 62-68-74 (82-90-98) stitches (incl. 1 edge stitch in each side for seam) with circular needle size 3 mm and green. Work ridges; 2 green, 2 red, 2 yellow. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm, navy blue and work the square pattern as follows: 20-22-18 (20-22-24) stitches stocking stitch, 20-22-18 (20-22-24) stitches moss stitch, 20-22-18 (20-22-24) stitches stocking stitch 0-0-18 (20-22-24) stitches moss stitch.
After 8.5-9.5-8 (8.25-9-9.75) cm of square pattern, work stocking stitch over moss stitch and moss stitch over stocking stitch for 8.5-9.5-8 (8.25-9-9.75) cm. Continue to change the square pattern in this way to finished length = 3-3-4 (4-4-4) squares in height. Remember the knitting tension. When piece measures 24-24-27 (27-30-32) cm, cast off 6 stitches for neck-split mid front. When the split measures 5-6-7 (8-9-10) cm, continue to cast off for neck every 2nd row: 3-3-3 (3-5-7) stitches x 1, 3 stitches x 1, 2 stitches x 1, 1 stitch x 2. Cast off when piece measures approx. 33-35-39 (41-45-48) cm (adjust to after a complete square in height). Now embroider the apples to the front piece in the stocking stitch squares with grafting stitches - see square diagram for the position and colour of the apples (see description of apples above). The apples should be in middle of each stocking stitch square.

Back piece: Cast on and work as for front piece but first cast off for neck when piece measures 31-33-37 (39-43-46) cm. Cast off the middle 20-20-22 (22-26-30) stitches and then continue every 2nd row: 2 stitches x 1. Cast off as for front when piece measures 33-35-39 (41-45-48) cm.

Right Sleeve: Cast on 38-40-42 (44-44-48) stitches with needle size 3 mm and green. Work ridges back and forth on needle; 2 green, 2 red, 2 yellow. Change to needle size 3.5 mm, navy blue and work square pattern as follows: 9-9-12 (12-11-12) stitches moss stitch, 20-22-18 (20-22-24) stitches stocking stitch, 9-9-12 (12-11-12) stitches moss stitch.
At the same time, after the ridges increase in each side: 1 stitch x 3-4-5 (7-13-13) in Sizes 0/3 + 12/18 months: Every 9th row, Size 6/9 months: Every 10th row, Size 2 years: Every 7th row, Size 3/4 years: Alternately every 4th and 5th row, Size 5/6 years: Every 5th row = 44-48-52 (58-70-74) stitches - the increased stitches are worked into the square pattern as you go. Cast off when piece measures 13-17-19 (20-24-27) cm. Embroider a red apple on the first row of squares in the stocking stitch square mid top of sleeve with grafting stitches (see description of apples above) - the apple is worked in middle of square.

Left sleeve: Cast on and work as for right but the first row of square pattern is worked as follows: 11-11-12 (12-11-12) stitches stocking stitch, 15-17-18 (20-22-24) stitches moss stitch, 11-11-12 (12-11-12) stitches stocking stitch.
Embroider a green apple on the second row of squares in the stocking stitch square mid top of sleeve with grafting stitches (see description of apples above) - the apple is worked in middle of square.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Sew sleeve and side seams in one go. Knit up approx. 12-24 stitches along the left side of the split with needle size 3 mm and navy blue and work rib for 2 cm, cast off. Repeat along the right side of the split but after 0.5 cm work 2-2-2 (2-2-3) buttonholes - cast off 2 stitches and cast on 2 new stitches above the cast off stitches on the next row, cast off. Knit up approx. 78-84 stitches around the neck with needle size 3 mm and navy blue. Work rib (knit 1, purl 1) for 6-8 cm, then work 2 ridges and cast off. Sew on buttons.
