NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
KNITTING TIP:
Half circle on front piece: It is very important that the knitting gauge is correct both in height and width otherwise the half circle on front piece will not have the right shape. If more rows are worked vertically on 10 cm / 4'' than what is stated, compensate by working a couple of rows without inc evenly in the circle.

DECREASE TIP:
Back piece: Dec 1 st in each side as follows: K 2, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, work until 4 sts remain on needle, K tog the next 2 sts, K 2.

INCREASE TIP:
Front piece: Inc 1 st by picking up the strand between 2 sts from previous row - K this st twisted, i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front to avoid a hole.
Rib: Inc 1 st by picking up the strand between 2 sts from previous row - P this st twisted, i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front to avoid a hole.

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

BUTTON HOLES:
1 button hole = bind off 2 sts and on next row cast on 2 new sts over these sts.
--------------------------------------------------------

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Work sideways from the side to mid front. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Vivaldi (= 2 strands).
Row 1 and then every other row (= WS): P all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): K all sts while at the same time inc 1 st on each side of 2nd st (= the middle st) - See increase tip above = 5 sts (2 new sts).
Row 4: K all sts while at the same time inc 1 st after 1st st on row, 1 st on each side of middle st and 1 st before the last st = 9 sts (4 new sts).
Row 6: K 2, inc 1 st, K 2, inc 1 st, K 1, inc 1 st, K 2, inc 1 st and K the last 2 sts = 13 sts (4 new sts).
Row 8: Insert a marker in the 2nd, 5th, 7th (= middle st), 9th and 12th st. Continue to inc as follows: Inc 1 st after each of the first 2 markers, 1 st on each side of middle st, and 1 st before each of the last 2 markers (6 new sts on 1 row with inc) = 19 sts. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Continue to inc 6 sts on every row from RS like this until 34-34-36-38 rows have been worked - See knitting tip above = 97-97-103-109 sts on needle, and piece measures approx. 18-18-19-20 cm / 7"-7"-7½"-8" from cast on edge measured in st direction. One half circle has been worked.

When piece measures 54-56-59-61 cm / 21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4"-24", bind off the middle 17-17-18-20 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Bind off 1 st on next row from the neck = 17-18-19-19 sts remain on each shoulder. When piece measures 56-58-61-63 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-24"-24 3/4", bind off all sts.

Repeat inc on every other row a total of 3-3-2-3 times = 50-56-60-68 sts. When piece measures 9-9-9-8 cm / 3½"-3½"-3½"-3 1/8" (shorter measurements in the largest size because of wider shoulder width), bind off for sleeve cap in beg of every row each side as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and then 1 st until piece measures 14-15-16-17 cm / 5½"-6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4". Then bind off in beg of every row each side: 2 sts 2 times and 3 sts 1 time. Bind off the remaining sts, piece measures approx. 17-18-19-20 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8".

Pick up from RS approx. 396 to 420 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Vivaldi as follows: Pick up along right front piece, back of neck, down along left front piece and along bottom edge (approx. 20 sts on 10 cm / 4'' - total no of sts can be divided by 6). NOTE: Make sure to pick up enough sts along the rounded edge in each side at the fronts so that the rib is not too tight there.
Then K 1 round. On next round, work rib as follows: * K 3, P 3 *, repeat from *-*. When rib measures approx. 2-2-2-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-1 1/8", bind off for 2 button holes evenly on left front band (at top of circle).
