BACK PIECE:
The whole piece is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel. Insert a marker in the middle st. Then work a "square" as follows:
Row 1 (= WS): Knit all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): Knit all sts.
Row 3: Knit all sts.
Row 4: K until 1 st remains before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso and K the rest of row.
Repeat row 1-4, i.e. dec 2 sts every 4 rows. Continue like this until 1 st remains on the needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the last st = 1st square.
Knit up 51-56-60-67-75-82 sts in the cast on edge on one side of the first "square" (start from the edge and continue towards the middle to and with st with marker from 1st square - see chart for knitting direction). Then cast on 52-57-61-68-76-83 new sts = 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on needle. Insert a marker in the middle st and work 2nd square as 1st square.

UPPER PIECE:
Knit up 102-112-120-134-150-164 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel in cast on edge on the 2 squares (if it is necessary to knit up 1 st between the "squares" to avoid holes, dec this st on next row). Insert a marker, measure the piece from here. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work back and forth. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm from marker, inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2-2 times = 108-118-126-138-154-168 sts. When piece measures 12 cm from marker, cast off 3-3-3-4-5-6 sts at the beg of the next 2 rows for armholes = 102-112-120-130-144-156 sts. Continue to work back and forth.
SIZE S + M + L + XL: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 13 cm, inc 1 st in each side for shoulder, repeat inc every 2-3-3-8 cm a total of 9-6-6-3 times = 120-124-132-136 sts.
SIZE XXL: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 14 cm, inc 1 st in each side for shoulder = 146 sts.
SIZE XXXL: No inc.
ALL SIZES: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 28-29-30-31-32-33 cm from marker, cast off the middle 22-24-24-26-26-28 sts for neck (= 49-50-54-55-60-64 sts remain on each shoulder) and finish each shoulder separately. Continue back and forth until piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35-36 cm from marker. Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel and work a "square" as explained on back piece.
Then knit up 52-57-61-68-76-83 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) along one side in the cast on edge on the square (see chart for knitting direction). Insert a marker, measure piece from here. Then work in garter st back and forth. When piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm from marker, inc in the side as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10-10-10-10-9-9 cm from marker, beg to dec for neck. Dec 1 st at beg of next row from WS, repeat dec every 6-6-6-6-8-8 rows a total of 12-13-13-14-14-15 times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm from marker, cast off for armhole as on back piece. Then inc for shoulder in the side as on back piece.
When all cast offs, dec and inc are done, 49-50-54-55-60-64 sts remain on needle for shoulder. Continue back and forth until piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35-36 cm from marker. Cast off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

FRONT BAND:
Knit up 74-80-84-92-96-104 sts along front edge on right front piece up to where dec for neck starts (insert a marker), then knit up 126-134-140-146-156-164 sts around the neck and 74-80-84-92-96-104 sts down along the edge on left front piece (adjust no of sts on 1st row if necessary). K back and forth on needle for approx. 1 cm. Now cast off for 5-5-5-6-6-6 button holes on right front band by working next row from RS as follows:
Work 15-17-17-19-18-16 sts, * cast off 1 st, work 13-14-15-13-14-16 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 4-4-4-5-5-5 times, cast off 1 st, work 2 sts (marker is here), then K the rest of the row. On next row cast on 1 new st over the cast off sts. Continue back and forth until front band measures approx. 2½ cm. Loosely cast off.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle in garter st, i.e. K all rows. Worked top down, this is done to make it easier to adjust to desired length (NOTE! the sleeve might be somewhat longer when worn).
Cast on 89-93-99-103-107-113 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel. Work back and forth until piece measures approx. 4 cm. Now start to dec 1 st in each side, repeat dec every 2½-2½-2-2-2-1½ cm a total of 16-17-19-20-21-23 times = 57-59-61-63-65-67 sts on needle. Continue until piece measures approx. 49-49-48-48-47-46 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width) or until desired measurements. Loosely cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew in sleeves. Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons.
