REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work next round as follows: * K 10-10-11-11-11-12, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 165-176-192-216-240-260 sts, put piece aside.

FLOUNCE-2: Cast on 330-352-384-432-480-520 sts, P 1 round, K 8 rounds and then K2 tog across the round = 165-176-192-216-240-260 sts.
Place flounce-2 on top of flounce-1 and work them tog, i.e. K first st on flounce-2 tog with first st on flounce-1, etc across the round = 165-176-192-216-240-260 sts.

YOKE:
Work next round as follows:
SIZE S: * P7, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain, P these = 136 sts.
SIZE M: * P5, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain, P these = 152 sts.
SIZE L: * P6, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 168 sts.
SIZE XL: * P6, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 6 sts remain, P these = 188 sts.
SIZE XXL: * P6, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 12 sts remain, P these = 208 sts.
SIZE XXXL: * P7, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 4 sts remain, P these = 228 sts.
ALL SIZES: K 1 round - work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. P 1 round and now divide piece with 68-76-84-94-104-114 sts on front and back pieces. Slip back piece on a stitch holder and complete each piece separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

FRONT PIECE:
= 68-76-84-94-104-114 sts. Work garter st back and forth on needle. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 2 cm inc 1 st each side, and repeat the inc on every 1.5-1.5-1.5-2-2-2 cm a total of 6 times = 80-88-96-106-116-126 sts. When piece measures 11-12-13-14-15-16 cm cast off 3-4-5-6-8-10 sts each side (i.e. at the beg of the next 2 rows). On next row from RS dec 1 st each side to shape the armhole – SEE DECREASING TIP – and repeat the dec on every other row a total of 3-5-7-10-12-14 times = 68-70-72-74-76-78 sts. When piece measures 17-19-20-22-24-25 cm cast off the middle 18-18-20-20-20-22 sts for neck (cast off from RS) and complete each shoulder separately.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
= 25-26-26-27-28-28 sts. On next row from RS dec 1 st on neckline – SEE DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every other row a total of 7-8-8-9-9-9 times = 18-18-18-18-19-19 sts. When piece measures 29-31-33-35-37-39 cm cast off, piece now measures a total of 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm.

LEFT SHOULDER:
= 25-26-26-27-28-28 sts. Beg from mid front (i.e. from WS), pick up 1 st in the first st that was cast off and work this tog with first st on needle (to make neckline neat and even), K remaining sts on row. Dec to shape the neckline as described for right shoulder =18-18-18-18-19-19 sts. Cast off when piece measures 29-31-33-35-37-39 cm.

BACK PIECE:
= 68-76-84-94-104-114 sts. Work garter st and inc at the sides as described for front piece, then cast off for armhole each side as described for front piece = 68-70-72-74-76-78 sts. Continue until piece measures 26-28-30-32-34-36 cm and now cast off the middle 26-28-30-32-32-34 sts for neck and complete each shoulder separately. On next row from RS dec 1 st on neckline – SEE DECREASING TIP – and repeat the dec on every other row a total of 3 times = 18-18-18-18-19-19 sts left on shoulder. When piece measures the same as front piece cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way – beg from mid back (i.e. from WS), pick up 1 st in the first st that was cast off and K this tog with first st on needle.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew side seams, edge to edge in outer loops of sts. Sew shoulder seams.
