GARTER ST (in the round): * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

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

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 and M.2. The diagram shows the pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows AFTER marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows BEFORE marker: K 2 tog.

INCREASE TIP 1:
Inc by working 2 sts in 1 st.

INCREASE TIP 2:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside the outermost 3 sts in garter st. On next row K the YO twisted (i.e. knit into back loop of st instead of front loop). Work the inc sts in garter st. NOTE! Avoid inc for wing sleeve on 1st and 7th row in the pattern diagram for sizes XL, XXL and XXXL (because of YO in pattern on 1st and 7th row for these sizes).

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 450-500-550-610-680-740 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Safran. Work M.1 over all sts - see explanation above! When M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, 180-200-220-244-272-296 sts remain on needle. Work in stocking st over all sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 13 cm, insert 4 markers in the piece as follows (for waist): Work 27-31-36-41-47-52 sts, insert marker 1, work 36-38-38-40-42-44 sts, insert marker 2, work 54-62-72-82-94-104 sts, insert marker 3, work 36-38-38-40-42-44 sts, insert marker 4, work the remaining 27-31-36-41-47-52 sts. Now dec 2 sts on front piece and 2 sts on back piece as follows: Dec AFTER marker 1 and 3 and BEFORE marker 2 and 4 - SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat these dec on every 6th-6th-6th-6th-5th-5th round a total of 4-4-4-4-5-5 times = 164-184-204-228-252-276 sts. When piece measures 24 cm, inc 2 sts on front piece and 2 sts on back piece as follows: Inc AFTER marker 1 and 3 and BEFORE marker 2 and 4 - READ INCREASE TIP 1! Repeat inc on every 6th-6th-6th-8th-8th-8th round a total of 3-3-3-3-2-2 times = 176-196-216-240-260-284 sts. When piece measures 32-33-34-35-36-37 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-2-4-2-4-2 sts evenly = 176-198-220-242-264-286 sts. Continue to work M.2 over all sts (= 16-18-20-22-24-26 repetitions). Insert 2 markers in the piece, after 8-9-10-11-12-13 repetitions of M.2 and after last st on round (= between 2 sts K in each side). Continue with M.2 vertically. When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm, work 4 rounds in GARTER ST - see explanation above - over 20-20-20-30-30-30 sts in each side (= 10-10-10-15-15-15 sts on each side of marker in each side) while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 2-2-2-4-4-4 sts evenly over these sts in each side (= 18-18-18-26-26-26 sts in garter st), work the remaining sts in pattern as before. When 4 rounds in garter st have been worked vertically over the 18-18-18-26-26-26 sts in each side, cast off the middle 12-12-12-20-20-20 sts each side for armholes and finish each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 74-85-96-97-108-119 sts. Worked back and forth on needle from this point. Continue to work pattern and 3 sts in GARTER ST each side - see explanation above. When piece measures 2 cm from where armholes were cast off, inc 1 st for wing sleeve in each side - READ INCREASE TIP 2! Repeat inc in each side on every 4th-6th-8th-8th-12th-12th row a total of 10-7-6-6-5-5 times = 94-99-108-109-118-129 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm, work 4 rows in garter st over the middle 52-53-52-63-64-63 sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-8-8-12-12-12 sts evenly over these sts in garter st on 1st row (= 44-45-44-51-52-51 sts in garter st), work the remaining sts in pattern as before. When 4 rows in garter st have been worked vertically over the 44-45-44-51-52-51 sts in garter st, cast off the middle 38-39-38-45-46-45 sts for neck and finish each piece separately = 24-26-31-26-30-36 sts remain on shoulder. Continue with pattern and 3 sts in garter st each side. Cast off when piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm.
