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.
See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

GARTER ST (in the round on double pointed needles/circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

Bind off for button holes on right band from RS.
1 button hole = bind off 3rd band st from edge, on next row cast on 1 new st over the bound off st.
Bind off for button holes when piece measures:
SIZE 3/4 years: 18, 23 and 27 cm / 7", 8 3/4" and 10½"
SIZE 5/7 years: 20, 25 and 29 cm / 8",9 3/4" and 11½"
SIZE 8/10 years: 21, 27 and 31 cm / 8 1/4",10 1/4" and 12 1/4"
SIZE 10/12 years: 23, 29 and 33 cm / 9", 11½" and 13"
NOTE: Last button hole is bound off on row after diagram M.2 has been worked.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Loosely cast on 152-166-180-194 sts (includes 5 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work first row as follows from RS: * K 10, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 8-10-12-14 sts remain, K these sts = 140-153-166-179 sts. Then K 3 rows back and forth.
Continue with diagram M.1 with 5 band sts in each side in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures approx. 16-18-18-19 cm / 6 1/4"-7"-7"-7½" (adjust so that 1 row remains of diagram M.1), work next row as follows (= WS): Work 34-37-41-44 sts, loosely bind off 7-7-6-6 sts for armhole, work 58-65-72-79 sts, loosely bind off 7-7-6-6 sts for armhole and work the rest of row (= 34-37-41-44 sts).
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 59-59-74-74 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work first round as follows: * K 6, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 3-3-2-2 sts remain, K these sts = 52-52-65-65 sts. Then P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Insert a marker at the beg of the round.
Continue with diagram M.1 - beg in the 11th-1st-4th-7th sts in diagram, count from the right (in size 3/4 and 8/10 years, K first st, and at the end of round K this st tog with the last st on round).
Continue working like this until piece measures approx. 3-4-4-5 cm / 1 1/8"-1½''-1½''-2'' (adjust so that 1 round of diagram M.1 remains).
On next round bind off the FIRST 6-6-7-7 sts, work the rest of round = 46-46-58-58 sts.

Cast on and work as right sleeve but when piece measures 3-4-4-5 cm / 1 1/8"-1½''-1½''-2'', bind off like this:
Size 3/4 and 8/10: bind off the FIRST 6-7 sts on round
Size 5/7 and 11/12: bind off the LAST 6-7 sts on round
(this is important to make the pattern correct on yoke).

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bind off = 218-231-270-283 sts. NOTE: It is very important that the right sleeve is inserted in the right side and the left sleeve is inserted in the left side so that the pattern fits onwards.
Continue with diagram M.2 – start at the arrow for the correct size - with 5 band sts in garter st in each side (= 16-17-20-21 repetitions on the round).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 18-20-21-23 cm / 7"-8"-8 1/4"-9", bind off for BUTTON HOLES - see explanation above.
When diagram M.2 has been worked vertically, 90-95-110-115 sts remain on needle. Work next row as follows from RS: K 5 (while at the same time casting/binding off for the last button hole), * K 2 tog, K 1 *, repeat from *-* until 7-6-6-5 sts remain, K these sts = 64-67-77-80 sts. K 3-3-5-5 rows back and forth, then bind off with K from RS.

Sew tog the openings under the sleeves and sew on buttons.


= K from RS, P from WS
= K from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= K 2 tog
