P 1 row from WS, then continue in rib as follows from RS: 1 GARTER ST - see above, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, * K2, P2 *, repeat from *-* until 9 sts remain, finish with K2, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1 and 1 GARTER ST. Continue like this until piece measures 4 cm. Now insert 2 markers in piece, 56-60-68-76-84-92 sts in from each side. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and continue in stocking st with 7 front band sts each side as before (= 1 garter st, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1 and P1 as seen from RS) and the 14 middle sts each side (i.e. 7 sts each side of marker) in rib (= P2, K2, P2, K2, P2, K2 and P2). AT THE SAME TIME on first row in stocking st dec 9-9-12-14-16-18 sts evenly on each front piece and 20-20-26-26-30-34 sts evenly on back piece – NOTE: Do not dec on front bands or on the 14 rib sts each side = 174-190-210-234-258-282 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION AND REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES ON RIGHT FRONT BAND!
When piece measures 8 cm inc 1 st each side of the 14 rib sts each side – See INCREASING TIP! Repeat the inc on every 7 cm a total of 4 times = 190-206-226-250-274-298 sts. When piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm work next row as follows from RS: work 44-48-53-59-65-71 sts (= right front piece), cast off the 14 rib sts (i.e. 7 sts each side of marker), work 74-82-92-104-116-128 sts (= back piece), cast off the 14 rib sts (i.e. 7 sts each side of marker) and work the remaining 44-48-53-59-65-71 sts (= left front piece).

Continue like this with stocking st and 14 rib sts mid under sleeve. When piece measures 13-12-11-12-11-14 cm inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st each side of rib section) – See INCREASING TIP! Repeat the inc on every 2.5-2.5-2.5-2-2-1.5 cm a total of 12-13-14-16-17-19 times = 74-78-82-86-90-94 sts.

AT THE SAME TIME after 1 cm stocking st dec 4-6-6-0-5-10 sts evenly – do not dec on front bands. Repeat the dec in Size L + XXL + XXXL after another 1-1-2 cm stocking st = 278-300-322-366-388-410 sts.
