ALL SIZES:
Continue to work the same way until piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now cast off 1-2-2-3-4-5 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. cast off at the beg of the next 2 rows) = 96-106-118-128-138-148 sts. Continue the pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm (adjust after 1 half repetition or 1 whole repetition of diagram M.1 and M.2 vertically), work 2 rows in stocking st, then continue with diagram M.3 over all sts (except edge st) – see arrow for your size; this marks where to beg in the diagram. AT THE SAME TIME when 4 rows remain of diagram M.3, cast off the middle 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 2 sts on next row from neck = 28-32-37-41-45-49 sts remain on the shoulder. When diagram M.3 has been worked, work approx. 1 cm in stocking st, then cast off. Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as back piece. Cast off for armhole as on back piece and continue until piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm. Then work 2 rows in stocking st - while at the same time on 1st row casting off the middle 4 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Work pattern as on back piece (make sure that diagram M.3 is worked the same way on each side of neck) – AT THE SAME TIME cast off on every row from neck: 2 sts 5-6-7-8-9-10 times and then 1 st 8-7-6-5-4-3 times = 28-32-37-41-45-49 sts remain on shoulder. Cast off when same no of rows has been worked as on back piece.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 62 sts for all sizes (incl 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 3 mm with Karisma. Work rib as follows (seen from from RS): 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, P 3 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 edge st in garter st. When piece measures approx. 5 cm (adjust so that next row is worked from WS), switch to needle size 4 mm. P 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, diagram M.1, M.2, M.1 and 1 edge st in garter st, continue like this. When piece measures 9 cm, inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 9th-8th-6th-5th-4th-4th row a total of 12-14-16-18-20-21 times - work the inc sts in stocking st = 86-90-94-98-102-104 sts. When piece measures approx. 46-46-44-42-40-39 cm (adjust after 1 half or 1 whole repetition of diagram M.1 and M.2 vertically, inc should be finished), work 2 rows in stocking st, then continue with diagram M.3 – start in first st on right side of diagram (the pattern will not fit at the end of row). After diagram M.3 work (if there is room) in stocking st until piece measures 56-56-54-52-50-49 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width), cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

NECK:
Knit up approx. 119 to 139 sts (divisible by 4 + 3) around the neck on circular needle size 3 mm with Karisma – beg mid front. Then the piece is worked back and forth from mid front. First row from WS is worked as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, * P 1, K 3 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P 1 and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue with K over K and P over P and edge st in garter st until neck edge measures approx. 6 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P. Place the neck on top of each other mid front, left side over right, fasten with stitches from both WS and RS.

Sew the sleeves inside 1 edge st. Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st.
