See diagram M.1 to M.3 – the diagrams show 1 repetition of the pattern. Diagrams M.2 and M.3 are worked in stockinette st.

Work until 2 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

Work until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, work 2 sts (marker is between these 2 sts), make 1 more YO. On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front).

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 590-640-680-770-810-900 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with beige brown and work diagram M.1. After diagram M.1, 236-256-272-308-324-360 sts remain on needle, continue with K 2/P 2 for 2 cm / 3/4''. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while at the same time dec 28-32-32-36-36-40 sts evenly = 208-224-240-272-288-320 sts.
Insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Work 23-25-27-31-33-37 sts, insert a marker, work 58-62-66-74-78-86 sts, insert a marker, work 46-50-54-62-66-74 sts, insert a marker, work 58-62-66-74-78-86 sts, insert a marker, 23-25-27-31-33-37 sts remain on round (markers show where to dec and inc sts). Then work diagram M.2 (= 13-14-15-17-18-20 repetitions on the round), then continue in stockinette st and with beige brown. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½''-8''-8¼'', dec 1 st on each side of all markers (=8 sts dec) – see DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 12th round a total of 7 times = 152-168-184-216-232-264 sts. When piece measures 50-51-52-53-54-55 cm / 19¾''-20''-20½''-21''-21¼''-21 5/8'', inc 1 st on each side of all markers – see INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc when piece measures 53-54-55-56-57-58 cm / 21''-21¼''-21 5/8''-22''-22½''-22¾'' = 168-184-200-232-248-280 sts.
When piece measures 60-61-62-63-64-65 cm / 23 5/8''-24''-24 3/8''-24¾''-25¼''-25½'', work next round as follows: bind off 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts, work 76-84-92-106-114-130 sts, bind off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts, work 76-84-92-106-114-130 sts and bind off the last 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts, cut the yarn. Put piece aside and work the sleeve edges.

Worked in the round on a circular needle.
Cast on 92-96-100-104-108-112 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with beige brown. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm / 1 1/8''. Then work 1 round in stockinette st while at the same time dec 16 sts evenly = 76-80-84-88-92-96 sts. Then bind off the first 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts on needle (= mid under sleeve) = 68-72-76-78-82-86 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve edge.

Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bind off = 288-312-336-368-392-432 sts. Insert a marker mid back. Work with beige brown until marker – now beg round here! Then K 1 round while at the same time dec 0-6-12-8-14-18 sts evenly = 288-306-324-360-378-414 sts. Then K 0-2-4-7-10-13 rounds. Continue with diagram M.3 (= 16-17-18-20-21-23 repetitions on the round). When diagram M.3 has been worked, 112-119-126-140-147-161 sts remain on needle. Work with beige brown until finished measurements. K 1 round while at the same time dec 12-15-18-24-27-37 sts evenly = 100-104-108-116-120-124 sts. Then work an elevation in the back as follows: K 8 sts past marker mid back, turn, tighten yarn and P 16 sts back, turn, tighten yarn and K 24 sts, turn, continue to work 8 sts more in stockinette st for every turn until a total of 80-80-80-96-96-96 sts have been worked since last turning point, turn and K 1 round over all sts until mid back again.

Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3. K 1 round while at the same time inc 16 sts evenly in all sizes = 116-120-124-132-136-144 sts. Work 5 rounds in rib = K 2/P 2. Switch to dark brown and work 2 rounds in rib. Bind off with K over K and P over P.
