Cast on 957-993-1053-1149-1221-1317 sts (includes 6 band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Vivaldi.
Work first row from RS as follows: 6 band sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * diagram M.1 (= 9 sts), P 3 *, repeat from *-* until 15 sts remain and finish with M.1 and 6 band sts in GARTER ST. Continue with pattern like this - NOTE: the 3 sts between every M.1 is worked K from WS and P from RS.
After M.1 325-337-357-389-413-445 sts remain on needle and a bell edge has been worked. Insert 2 markers in the piece; in the 84th-87th-92nd-100th-106th-114th st from each side (= 157-163-173-189-201-217 sts between sts with markers on back piece). Work stockinette st with 6 sts in GARTER ST each side while AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sts at markers in each side - READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other row a total of 42-43-44-47-49-52 times upwards = 157-165-181-201-217-237 sts on needle.
NOTE: Remember BUTTON HOLES - see explanation above - on right front band and REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

AT THE SAME TIME on last row in M.2 (= from WS) adjust the no of sts to 137-157-167-187-207-227 (do not inc/dec over the bands). Insert 2 markers in the piece after 36-41-46-51-56-61 sts from each side (= 65-75-75-85-95-105 sts between markers on back piece).
Switch back to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work next row from RS as follows: 6 band sts, work M.3 until 6 sts remain and finish with 6 band sts.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Continue pattern as explained above.

On next row work 2 rows in garter st only over the outermost 8 sts towards mid front (do not work the other sts on needle). Then work one row over all sts and then work 2 rows garter st only over the outermost 8 sts in the other side.
Continue to work over all sts again while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st inside the outermost band st in each side as follows: Inc on every other row a total of 4-6-8-8-8-8 times, on every 4th row a total of 6-6-6-6-7-7 times and then on every 8th row a total of 4-4-4-4-5-5 times = a total of 16-18-20-20-22-22 sts inc for collar (= 22-24-26-26-28-28 collar sts).

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 50-51-52-54-56-59 cm / 19 3/4"-20"-20½"-21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4", bind off 6 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 3 sts on both sides of both markers) and finish each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 67-77-77-85-95-105 sts. Continue with the pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armhole at beg of every row in each side as follows: 2 sts 1-2-1-3-4-5 times and 1 st 1-3-3-2-4-5 times = 61-63-67-69-71-75 sts. NOTE: work sts that do not fit the pattern in stockinette st when binding off for armholes. When piece measures 67-69-71-74-77-81 cm / 26 3/8"-27 1/8"-28"-29 1/8"-30 3/8"-32", bind off the middle 15-15-15-17-19-21 sts for neckline and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off 1 st on the next row from the neckline = 22-23-25-25-25-26 sts remain on the shoulder. Continue to work until piece measures 69-71-73-76-79-83 cm / 27 1/8"-28"-28 3/4"-30"-31"-32 3/4" and LOOSELY bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Continue inc for collar and dec for neckline as before while AT THE SAME TIME binding off for armholes at the beg of every row from side as on back piece. After all inc and bind offs are done, there are 44-47-51-51-53-54 sts on needle. When piece measures 69-71-73-76-79-83 cm / 27 1/8"-28"-28 3/4"-30"-31"-32 3/4", bind off the outermost 22-23-25-25-25-26 sts at beg of row from side for shoulder = 22-24-26-26-28-28 sts remain on needle (= collar). Work rest of row. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work garter st back and forth over collar as follows: * 2 rows in garter st over all sts, 2 rows in garter st only over the outermost 14-16-18-18-20-20 sts *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-3½" in the most narrow part (it will then measure approx. 14-14-14-16-16-18 cm / 5½"-5½"-5½"-6 1/4"-6 1/4"-7" at the widest), LOOSELY bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 110-110-120-120-120-130 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 with Vivaldi. K 1 round, then work next round as follows: * M.5 (= 7 sts), P 3 *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Continue the pattern like this. After M.5 44-44-48-48-48-52 sts remain on needle and a bell edge has been worked. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting the no of sts to 45-45-47-47-49-51. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Work next round as follows: 1-1-2-2-3-4 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - M.4A (= 6 sts), M.4B over the next 28 sts, M.4C (= 9 sts) and 1-1-2-2-3-4 sts in GARTER ST. Continue the pattern like this. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 15-15-15-15-17-16 cm / 6"-6"-6"-6"-6 3/4"-6 1/4", inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st each side of marker). Repeat inc every 6-4½-4-3-2-2 cm / 2 3/8"-1 3/4"-1½"-1 1/8"-3/4"-3/4" a total of 6-7-8-10-12-13 times = 57-59-63-67-73-77 sts. NOTE: Work inc sts in garter st at M.4, in pattern at M.2 and in stockinette st at M.3 until they fit the pattern again.
AT THE SAME TIME when M.4 has been worked 1½ time vertically, i.e. finish after 12th round in M.4, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Work M.2. NOTE: On 7th round in M.2 K last st on round. After M.2 switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8. Then work M.3. NOTE: Arrow in diagram marks mid on top of sleeve, count outwards. When piece measures 48-46-46-45-43-42 cm / 19"-18"-18"-17 3/4"-17"-16½" (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder width), bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 3 sts on each side of marker) and then work sleeve back and forth on needle. Continue with the pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME binding off at beg of every row in each side as follows: 2 sts 3-2-2-2-2-2 times and 1 st 3-6-6-7-10-11 times. Continue to bind off 2 sts at beg of every row in each side until sleeve measures 55 cm / 21½'' in all size. Then bind off 3 sts at beg of the next 2 rows before binding off all sts, piece measures approx. 56 cm / 22''. Knit 1 more sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves. Sew the collar tog mid back, sew edge to edge in front loop of outermost st, make sure the seam is not tight. Sew collar to neckline in the back of neck. Sew on buttons.

CROCHET BORDER ALONG COLLAR:
Work on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Vivaldi. Beg from WS at the bottom of collar on left front piece, work as follows: Work 1 sc in first ridge (2 rows in garter st), * ch 4, 1 dc in the first of the ch 4, skip 1 ridge, 1 sc in next ridge *, repeat from *-* along the entire collar. Fasten off.
