TUBE KNITTING:
* K 1, place yarn in front of piece (towards you), slip 1 st as if to P, place yarn behind piece (from you) *, repeat from *-* on all rows. This becomes a ribbon worked in the round.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked sideways from mid back. Cast on 33-38-42 (46-50) sts with light gray purple on needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2. Work in garter st - Read explanation above - While at the same time inc 1 st in the right side and dec 1 st in the left side as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K 2, inc 1 st - Read INCREASE TIP above, work until 4 sts remain and K 2 tog, K 2.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Repeat these 2 rows until piece measures 5½-6-6½ (7-8) cm / 2 1/4"-2 3/8"-2½" (2 3/4"-3 1/8"). Insert a marker in the right side = right ear flap. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Then dec 1 st in the right side and inc 1 st in the left side as follows:

LEG:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 38-44-50 (54-60) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with gray purple, work seed st for 9-10-10 (10-10) cm / 3½"-4"-4" (4"-4") - Read explanation above. Insert a marker at beg of round (= inside of leg) and move the marker upwards. Then switch to light gray purple and then continue in stockinette st - while at the same time inc 1 st on next round on each side of marker - Read INCREASE TIP above. Repeat inc every 2-3-4 (4-4) rounds a total of 14-15-16 (18-19) times = 66-74-82 (90-98) sts.
When piece measures 21-25-29 (33-37) cm / 8 1/4"-9 3/4"-11 3/8" (13"-14½"), bind off 2 sts on each side of marker (= 4 sts bind off) = 62-70-78 (86-94) sts. Put piece aside and knit another leg the same way.

BODY:
Slip both legs in on same circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with bound off sts towards each other = 124-140-156 (172-188) sts. Now measure piece from here. Continue to work back and forth from mid front with light gray purple as follows (1st row = RS): Cast on 5 new sts on needle, K over all sts and cast on 5 new sts at the end of row = 134-150-166 (182-198) sts. Insert a marker 36-40-44 (48-52) sts in from each side (= 62-70-78 (86-94) sts between markers on back piece). Move the markers upwards when working. Then work in stockinette st but work the 5 outermost sts in each side towards mid front in garter st until finished measurements (= front bands). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 6-6-7 (7-7) cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2 3/4" (2 3/4"-2 3/4"), bind off for first button hole on right band - Read explanation above.
When piece measures 16-20-23 (26-29) cm / 6 1/4"-8"-9" (10 1/4"-11 3/8"), work diagram M.1 on next row from RS with 5 band sts in each side. NOTE: On last row in diagram M.1 (= WS), bind off 4-4-4 (5-5) sts on each side of every marker for armholes (= 8-8-8 (10-10) dec sts in each side) = 118-134-150 (162-178) sts.
Now the piece measures approx. 20-24-27 (30-33) cm / 8"-9½"-10 5/8" (11 3/4"-13") from where legs were placed tog. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 38-40-42 (44-46) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with gray purple, work seed st for 5-5-5 (6-6) cm / 2"-2"-2" (2½"-2½"). Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and move the marker upwards. Then switch to light gray purple and then continue in stockinette st - while at the same time inc 1 st on next round on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 2-3-3 (4-5) rounds a total of 7-8-9 (10-11) times = 52-56-60 (64-68) sts.
When piece measures 10-13-15 (18-23) cm / 4"-5 1/8"-6" (7"-9"), work diagram M.1 - On last round in diagram M.1, bind off 4-4-4 (5-5) sts on each side of marker for armhole (= 8-8-8 (10-10) sts bind off) = 44-48-52 (54-58) sts.
Put piece aside and knit another sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bind off = 206-230-254 (270-294) sts. Then work diagram M.2 back and forth with 5 band sts in garter st in each side towards mid front (1st row = RS). NOTE: Dec 20-20-24 (24-28) sts evenly on row which is marked with an arrow in diagram M.2.
REMEMBER TO CONTINUE TO BIND OFF FOR BUTTON HOLES ON RIGHT BAND!
When diagram M.2 has been worked, there are 86-110-110 (126-126) sts on needle and piece measures approx. 12-12-13 (14-15) cm / 4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5 1/8" (5½"-6") from where sleeves were placed tog (i.e. 1st row in diagram M.2).

NECK EDGE:
Then work back and forth in seed st with gray purple as follows: K from RS while at the same time dec 4-20-16 (30-26) sts evenly on 1st row (= RS) = 82-90-94 (96-100) sts. Then work 1 row in seed st. On next row from RS, bind off for last button hole on right band. Continue in seed st until neck edge measures 2-2-2 (3-3) cm / 3/4''-3/4''-3/4'' (1 1/8''-1 1/8''). Loosely bind off all sts.
