PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 to M.3. The diagram shows the pattern from RS. NOTE! See diagram for size.

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

KNITTING TIP:
If knitting tension is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan sleeve will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra row without dec evenly spaced between dec.

DECREASE TIP (applies to raglan):
All dec are done from RS.
Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

BUTTON HOLES:
Cast off for button holes on right front band.
1 button hole = cast off 3rd band st. On next row cast on 1 new st over the cast off st. Cast off for button holes when piece measures (NOTE! cast off the last button hole at the neck in garter st on neckline):
SIZE S: 4, 12, 20, 28, 36 and 45 cm.
