TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 150-160-180-190-210-230 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Paris. Work M.1. After M.1, work M.2 (1 repetition = 10 sts).
After M.2 switch to circular needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st and on 1st round insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Work 17-19-23-25-30-34 sts, insert marker 1, work 41-42-44-45-45-47 sts, insert marker 2, work 34-38-46-50-60-68 sts, insert marker 3, work 41-42-44-45-45-47 sts, insert marker 4 and work the remaining sts = 17-19-23-25-30-34 sts. Move the markers upwards when working.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 15-16-16-17-17-17 cm, dec 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 - READ DECREASE TIP- (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3-3-3½-5-5½-6 cm a total of 7-7-7-5-5-5 times = 122-132-152-170-190-210 sts.
When piece measures 36-37-40-41-43-45 cm, inc 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 - READ INCREASE TIP - (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every other round a total of 4-4-3-3-3-3 times = 138-148-164-182-202-222 sts.
Now remove the 4 markers and insert 2 new markers as follows: Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 69-74-82-91-101-111 sts (= mid of each side). When piece measures 40-42-44-43-45-47 cm, P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round over the middle 14-14-16-18-22-22 sts in each side (i.e. over 7-7-8-9-11-11 sts on each side of both markers). NOTE! Work the remaining sts in stocking st as before. Then cast off the middle 10-10-12-14-18-18 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 5-5-6-7-9-9 sts on each side of both markers) = 59-64-70-77-83-93 sts remain on front and back piece. Cut the thread.

YOKE:
Beg mid back of body (in Sizes S + XL + XXL + XXXL beg with the middle st and in sizes M + L beg with the 2nd of the 2 middle sts). Work on circular needle size 5 mm as follows: K 30-32-35-39-42-47 sts, cast on 46-48-56-56-57-61 new sts (= over one sleeve), K the 59-64-70-77-83-93 sts on front piece, cast on 46-48-56-56-57-61 new sts (= over the other sleeve) and work the remaining 29-32-35-38-41-46 sts = 210-224-252-266-280-308 sts.
Continue to work M.3 (1 repetition = 14 sts). NOTE! See diagram for size! When M.3 has been worked vertically, 120-128-144-152-160-176 sts remain on needle.

NECKLINE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Insert a marker after 60-64-72-76-80-88 sts (= mid front). K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 18-18-26-26-26-34 sts evenly = 102-110-118-126-134-142 sts (NOTE! Dec the same no of sts on each side of marker and mid back). P 1 round. Continue in GARTER ST - see explanation above - back and forth on needle from mid back while AT THE SAME TIME working an elevation in the back of neck as follows (start from RS):
Work until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker mid front, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker in the other side.
Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before marker, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before marker in the other side.
Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 48-51-54-57-60-63 sts remain before marker, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 48-51-54-57-60-63 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn piece, tighten thread and K until beg of round (= mid back).
Now work M.1 in the round but start on 3rd round in the diagram. When M.1 has been worked vertically, loosely cast off with K over all sts.
