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

GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
1 ridge = 2 rounds * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

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

INCREASE TIP:
Inc inside outermost st in garter st in each side by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
--------------------------------------------------------

TUNIC:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 408-448-488-528-568-608 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with dark grey and work diagram M.1. After diagram M.1, there are 204-224-244-264-284-304 sts on needle. Then work K over K and P over P for 2 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and K 1 round while at the same time dec 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts evenly = 180-198-216-234-252-270 sts. Insert 4 markers in the piece as follows (round beg in the side): Work 20-22-24-26-28-30 sts, insert a marker, work 50-55-60-65-70-75 sts, insert a marker, work 40-44-48-52-56-60 sts, insert a marker, work 50-55-60-65-70-75 sts, insert a marker, work the last 20-22-24-26-28-30 sts on the round (markers show where to dec sts). Then work diagram M.2 (= 10-11-12-13-14-15 repetitions on the round), then continue in stocking st and with dark grey. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 20-21-21-22-22-23 cm, dec 1 st on each side of the 4 markers – see DECREASE TIP (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every 8th round a total of 6 times = 132-150-168-186-204-222 sts. When piece measures 42-43-43-44-44-45 cm, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time inc 28-26-40-38-36-50 sts evenly = 160-176-208-224-240-272 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Then work rib as follows from the side (= beg of round): P 1, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with P 1. When rib measures 8-8-9-9-10-10 cm, work next round as follows: 5-5-9-9-9-13 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, work 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, 10-10-18-18-18-26 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, and the last 5-5-9-9-9-13 sts in garter st. Continue like this until 4 rounds in garter st (2 ridges) have been worked over sts in each side. Work next round as follows: Cast off 1-1-5-5-5-9 sts (for armhole), 4 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib, 4 sts in garter st, cast off 2-2-10-10-10-18 sts (for armhole), 4 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, 4 sts in garter st and cast off 1-1-5-5-5-9 sts (= armhole), cut the thread. Finish front and back piece separately.



BACK PIECE:
= 78-86-94-102-110-118 sts. Continue in rib and 4 sts in garter st in each side. When rib section measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm, inc 1 st in each side towards armhole - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 4 rows a total of 6 times = 10 sts in garter st in each side and 90-98-106-114-122-130 sts in total. When rib section measures 26-27-29-30-32-33 cm, cast off the middle 26-26-26-34-34-34 sts for neck = 32-36-40-40-44-48 sts remain on each shoulder. Work 2 cm over each shoulder. Then either cast off or slip sts on a stitch holder. It will look nicer if you sew the shoulder seams tog without casting off first.

FRONT PIECE:
= 78-86-94-102-110-118 sts. Continue as follows: 4 sts in garter st, 30-34-38-42-46-50 sts in rib, 10 sts in garter st, 30-34-38-42-46-50 sts in rib and 4 sts in garter st. When 6 rows in garter st have been worked over the middle 10 sts, divide the piece in the middle for split. Finish each part separately.

RIGHT SIDE:
= 39-43-47-51-55-59 sts. Then work 5 sts in garter st towards the neck and 4 sts in garter st towards the armhole. At the same time when piece measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm, inc 1 st towards the armhole as on back piece. Repeat inc every 4 rows a total of 6 times. There are now 10 sts in garter st towards the armhole and 45-49-53-57-61-65 sts in total. When piece measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm, cast off on every row from neck: 9 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-1-2-2-2 times and 1 st 2-2-2-4-4-4 times = 32-36-40-40-44-48 sts remain on shoulder. When rib section measures 28-29-31-32-34-35 cm, either cast off sts or slip them on a stitch holder.

LEFT SIDE:
Work as right side but with inc, dec and cast offs in the opposite side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.
NECK EDGE: Knit up approx. 66 to 86 sts around the neck on circular needle size 3.5 mm with dark grey. K 3 rows back and forth, cast off with K.
