BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 210-228-246-270-306-330 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with dark gray blue Karisma.
Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm / 2''.
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 36-38-40-44-52-56 sts evenly = 174-190-206-226-254-274 sts.
Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 87-95-103-113-127-137 sts (these marks the sides). Continue in stockinette st.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 15 cm / 6'', inc 1 st on each side of both markers. Repeat inc when piece measures 30 cm / 11 3/4'' = 182-198-214-234-262-282 sts.
When piece measures 41-43-45-46-48-50 cm / 16"-17"-17 3/4"-18"-19"-19 3/4", insert 2 markers in the piece; 1 in the middle st at the front and 1 in the middle st at the back.
Then work diagram M.1 – st marked with arrow in diagram should be sts with marker mid front/back - count out towards the side. Count out again when at the marker in the side so that pattern is the same on the front and on the back. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 46-47-48-49-50-51 cm / 18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20'', bind off 6-10-14-20-30-36 sts for armholes in each side (i.e. 3-5-7-10-15-18 sts on each side of both markers in the sides). Finish front and back piece separately, back and forth on needle.

FRONT PIECE:
= 85-89-93-97-101-105 sts. Finish diagram M.1, then work diagram M.2 and finally M.3 before continuing with light beige brown until finished measurements (st with arrow in diagram should be st with marker mid front/back – count out towards the side).
When piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'', slip the middle 15-17-17-19-19-21 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
AT THE SAME TIME bind off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 3 times = 26-27-29-30-32-33 sts remain on shoulder.
Bind off when piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''.

BACK PIECE:
= 85-89-93-97-101-105 sts. Work as on front piece but do not bind off for neck until piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''. Now bind off the middle 29-31-31-33-33-35 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately - AT THE SAME TIME bind off 2 sts on next row from neck = 26-27-29-30-32-33 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when piece measures approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' – bind off on same row in pattern as on front piece.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.
Cast on 62-64-66-66-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 with dark gray blue. Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm / 2''.
Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 11 sts evenly = 51-53-55-55-57-57 sts.
Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc a total of 17-18-19-21-22-24 times in

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 53 cm / 21'' in all sizes, work diagram M.1 (st with arrow in diagram = mid on top of sleeve – count out towards the side).
After diagram M.1, continue with dark gray blue until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 61-60-59-58-56-54 cm / 24"-23½"-23 1/4"-22 3/4"-22"-21 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), finish the piece back and forth on needle from mid under sleeve.
Cast on 1 new st in each side (= edge st for assembly) and work until sleeve measures 63 cm / 24 3/4'' in all sizes, bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams and sew in sleeves (section worked back and forth at the top of sleeve should fit the bind off for armhole).
