GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

DECREASING TIP:
Make all dec from RS!
Dec as follows after marker: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.
Dec as follows 2 sts before marker: K2 tog.

INCREASING TIP:
Make all inc from RS!
Inc 1 st by picking up st from previous row, K this st.

ENGLISH RIB (back and forth on needle):
Row 1: 7 front band sts as before, * K1, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P *, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain, finish with K1 and 7 front band sts as before.
Row 2: 7 front band sts as before, * 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P, K tog YO and slipped st *, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain, finish with 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P and 7 front band sts as before.
Row 3: 7 front band sts as before, * K tog YO and slipped st, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P *, repeat from *-* until 9 sts remain, K tog YO and slipped st, 7 front band sts as before.
Repeat Row 2 and 3.

SHORTENED ROWS:
To avoid the front band stretching on yoke when working English rib work shortened rows each side as follows:
* beg from RS and work 3 rows English rib on all sts, turn piece. Work English rib until 7 front band sts remain, turn piece and work English rib until 7 front band sts remain the other side – NOTE: when turning mid piece tighten first st when continuing to avoid a hole. Turn piece, work all sts (including front band) *, repeat from *-* along yoke until English rib is finished. Continue back and forth on all sts left.

BUTTONHOLES:
Make buttonholes on right front band.
1 BUTTONHOLE = P tog 3rd and 4th st from the edge and make 1 YO.
Make buttonholes when piece measures approx:
SIZE S: 37, 46 and 55 cm.
SIZE M: 38, 47 and 56 cm.
SIZE L: 39, 49 and 59 cm.
SIZE XL: 40, 50 and 60 cm.
SIZE XXL: 41, 52 and 63 cm.
SIZE XXXL: 42, 53 and 64 cm.
I.e. the bottom buttonhole is in transition between stocking st and English rib, and the top one 1-2 cm before finished measurements.

TOP:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.

BODY PIECE:
LOOSELY cast on 125-137-149-167-185-203 sts (includes 7 front band sts each side towards front edge) on circular needle size 6 mm with 2 strands Kid-Silk. Work rib (K1/P1) with 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see above - and K1 each side towards front edge (row 1 = RS). When rib measures 3 cm insert 4 markers in piece as follows:
marker-1 after 19-20-22-22-23-24 sts, marker-2 after new 32-36-38-47-54-61 sts, marker-3 after new 23-25-29-29-31-33 sts, marker-4 after new 32-36-38-47-54-61 sts (= 19-20-22-22-23-24 sts left after the last marker). Continue in stocking st with 7 front band sts each side in rib as before. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 6-6-6-9-9-9 cm dec 1 st before marker-1 and -3 and 1 st after marker-2 and -4 (= 4 dec sts) – See DECREASING TIP! Repeat the dec on every 6-6-6-9-9-9 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2-2 times = 113-125-137-159-177-195 sts. When piece measures 24-24-25-26-26-26 cm inc 1 st before marker-1 and -3 and 1 st after marker-2 and -4 (= 4 inc sts) – See INCREASING TIP! Repeat the inc on every 3-3.5-3.5-5-5-6 cm a total of 4-4-4-3-3-3 times = 129-141-153-171-189-207 sts. Now insert 2 new markers 36-39-42-46-51-55 sts in from each side (= 57-63-69-79-87-97 sts between markers on back piece). When piece measures approx 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm – adjust so that next row is from WS – K 2 rows on the middle 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts each side (i.e. 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts each side of both markers – work remaining sts as before). On next row (= WS) cast off the middle 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts each side for armhole – NOTE: K the 3 sts each side of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 cast off sts from WS. There are now 33-36-39-42-47-51 sts left on each front piece and 51-57-63-71-79-89 sts on back piece.

Work next row as follows from RS: Work 33-36-39-42-47-51 sts as before (= front piece), cast on 40-42-45-48-51-54 new sts over the 6-6-6-8-8-8 cast off sts (= over armhole), work 51-57-63-71-79-89 sts (= back piece), cast on 40-42-45-48-51-54 new sts over the 6-6-6-8-8-8 cast off sts (= over armhole) and work the remaining 33-36-39-42-47-51 sts = 197-213-231-251-275-299 sts. P 1 row from WS (front bands as before) AT THE SAME TIME dec 56-66-76-88-100-114 sts evenly – NOTE: do not dec on front bands = 141-147-155-163-175-185 sts. READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue in ENGLISH RIB - see above - with 7 front band sts in rib each side as before (row 1 = RS). REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES ON RIGHT FRONT BAND - see above. AT THE SAME work SHORTENED ROWS - see above. When yoke measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm work rib, K1/P1, on all sts (instead of English rib) with 1 edge st each side in garter st – NOTE: I.e. on row 1 K tog YO and slipped st (= K1), P next st.
When yoke measures approx 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm work next row as follows from RS: 7 front band sts as before, * K2 tog into back of loop, P2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain and finish with K1 and 7 front band sts as before = 78-81-85-89-95-100 sts.
