Not sure which size you should choose? Then it might help you to know that the model in the picture is approx. 170 cm and uses size S or M.

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. NOTE: All edge sts are worked in garter st.

PATTERN:
See diagrams M.1, M.1A = 3 sts, M.1B = 6 sts and M.1C = 4 sts. Diagrams show the pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st by working 2 sts tog.

BUTTON HOLES:
Cast off for 2 button holes on right band, approx. 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm and approx. 38-39-40-41-42-43 cm from the top of shoulder.
1 BUTTON HOLE = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts.
--------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 172-196-220-220-244-244 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm with Lin or Belle. Then work rib as follows (1st row = RS): 1 edge sts in garter st - See explanation above, * K 2, P 4 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 2 and 1 edge st in garter st = 28-32-36-36-40-40 P-sections (seen from RS).
When piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm, dec 1 st in every P-section (seen from RS) - Read DECREASE TIP = 144-164-184-184-204-204 sts. Continue in rib with K 2/P 3 with 1 edge st in each side.
When piece measures 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm, dec 1 more st in every P-section (seen from RS) = 116-132-148-148-164-164 sts. Continue in rib with K 2/P 2 with 1 edge st in each side. When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm, dec 29-33-37-37-41-41 sts evenly on last row from WS = 87-99-111-111-123-123 sts. On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time (= 3 sts), then diagram M.1B a total of 13-15-17-17-19-19 times and finally diagram M.1C 1 time (= 4 sts), finish with 1 edge st. Continue diagram M.1 with 1 edge st in each side until piece measures 41-43-41-43-41-43 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now insert a marker in each side of piece (= armhole starts here).
Continue to work until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. Then work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row from RS cast off the middle 17 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Cast off 2 sts on next row from neck = 33-39-45-45-51-51 sts remain on shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 62-74-86-86-98-98 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm. Then work rib as follows (1st row = RS): 1 edge st, * P 4, K 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 edge st towards mid front = 10-12-14-14-16-16 P-sections (seen from RS).
When piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm, dec 1 st in every P-section (seen from RS) = 52-62-72-72-82-82 sts. Continue in rib with K 2/P 3 with 1 edge st in each side.
When piece measures 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm, dec 1 more st in every P-section (seen from RS) = 42-50-58-58-66-66 sts. Continue in rib with K 2/P 2 with 1 edge st in each side.
When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm, dec 9-11-13-13-15-15 sts evenly on last row from WS = 33-39-45-45-51-51 sts. On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work short rows for diagonal front edge as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time (= 3 sts), diagram M.1B a total of 1-2-3-3-4-4 times (= 6-12-18-18-24-24 sts) = 10-16-22-22-28-28 sts on needle, turn piece, tighten thread and work back. Work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time, diagram M.1B a total of 2-3-4-4-5-5 times = 16-22-28-28-34-34 sts on needle, turn piece, tighten thread and work back. Work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time, diagram M.1B a total of 3-4-5-5-6-6 times = 22-28-34-34-40-40 sts on needle, turn piece, tighten thread and work back. On next row from RS work all sts as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time, diagram M.1B a total of 4-5-6-6-7-7 times, then work diagram M.1C 1 time, finish with 1 edge st = 33-39-45-45-51-51 sts.
Continue diagram M.1 with 1 edge st in each side until piece measures 41-43-41-43-41-43 cm. Now insert a marker in the right side of piece seen from RS (armhole starts here). Continue to work until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. Now work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Knit up from RS on circular needle size 5 mm approx. 80 to 100 sts between markers along one armhole. K next row from WS - AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 75-75-87-87-99-99 (incl 1 edge st in each side). On next row from RS work as follows: 1 edge st, work diagram M.1A 1 time (= 3 sts), then diagram M.1B a total of 11-11-13-13-15-15 times, work diagram M.1C 1 time (= 4 sts), finish with 1 edge st. Continue to work diagram M.1 with 1 edge st in each side until piece measures approx. 9-9-8-8-7-7 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width). On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 4 mm and dec 1 st on row - while AT THE SAME TIME working rib (K 2, P 2) with 1 edge st in each side = 74-74-86-86-98-98 sts. When sleeve measures 13-13-12-12-11-11 cm, loosely cast off sts with K over K and P over P. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st.

RIGHT BAND:
Worked back and forth on needle. Knit up from RS on circular needle size 4 mm approx. 110 to 130 sts along the entire right front piece, at the end of row cast on 15 new sts for collar at the back. K next row from WS - AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts along right front piece to 112-116-120-124-128-132 (do not inc/dec over the collar sts at the back) = 127-131-135-139-143-147 sts in total. Then work rib from RS as follows: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 2 and 1 edge st in garter st (= 31-32-33-34-35-36 P-sections). Continue in rib until band measures 3 cm, then inc from RS 1 P st in the last 12-12-14-14-16-16 P-sections (= inc around the neck) = 139-143-149-153-159-163 sts. When band measures 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm, cast off for button holes - see explanation above. Continue with K over K and P over P until band measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm, loosely cast off all sts with K over K and P over P.

LEFT BAND:
Cast on 15 sts on circular needle size 4 mm for collar at the back, then knit up sts along left front band as on right band. Work as right band but reversed and without button holes.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew collar tog mid back inside 1 edge st (with WS against WS), and sew collar to neck line at the back of neck. Sew the buttons on to the left band.
