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. If you are making a jumper, cardigan, dress or similar garment, you will find a graphic with the measurements of the finished garment (in cm) at the bottom of the pattern.

See diagrams M.1 and M.2. Diagrams show pattern from RS.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

SHORT ROWS (applies to side piece):
Beg from bottom edge and work as follows: * Work until 1st marker, turn and work back, work 2 rows over all sts, work until 2nd marker, turn and work back, work 2 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-*. I.e. 1 repetition = 4 rows at the top and 8 rows at the bottom.

Cast off for 3 button holes from RS on right band.
1 button hole = cast off fourth st from mid front and cast on 1 new st on next row over this st.
Cast off for button holes when piece measures:
SIZE S: 15, 22 and 29 cm
SIZE M: 16, 23 and 30 cm
SIZE L: 17, 24 and 31 cm
SIZE XL: 18, 25 and 32 cm
SIZE XXL: 18, 26 and 34 cm
SIZE XXXL: 20, 28 and 36 cm

DECREASE TIP (applies to neck dec at the front):
All dec are done from RS inside all sts in garter st (= band + the inc sts for collar).

RIGHT FRONT PIECE: Dec as follows after all sts in garter st: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso. LEFT FRONT PIECE: Dec as follows when 2 sts in stocking st remain before all sts in garter st: K 2 tog.

First worked in a square in the round, then worked down the back piece and outwards in the sides. Then work front piece and the sleeves.

Cast on 8 sts with Muskat and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 4 mm (= 2 sts on every needle). Insert a marker at the beg of the round.
Then work diagram M.1 = 4 repetitions in the round. Switch to circular needle when needed.
When diagram M.1 has been worked, there are 264 sts on needle. Continue in the round in stocking st and with inc in every corner as before until there are 272-288-304-320-352-384 sts on needle, work 1 round after last inc.
Work next round as follows (all sizes): K 41-45-49-53-61-69 and then slip them on stitch holder 1 (= towards right side), cast off the next 28 sts (= armhole), K 67-71-75-79-87-95 and then slip them on stitch holder 2 (= up towards neck), cast off the next 28 sts (= armhole), K 41-45-49-53-61-69 and slip them on stitch holder 3 (= towards left side). 67-71-75-79-87-95 sts remain on needle, cast on 1 new st in each side (= edge st). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work in stocking st back and forth with 1 edge st in each side in GARTER ST – see explanation above – for 18 cm (= down the back piece). Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work 6 rows in garter st. Then LOOSELY cast off. Piece measures approx. 53-55-57-59-63-67 cm.

BACK PIECE – upwards:
Slip the 67-71-75-79-87-95 sts from stitch holder 2 (= up towards neck) on circular needle size 4 mm and work as follows (1st row = RS): 22-24-25-27-30-34 sts in stocking st, cast off the next 23-23-25-25-27-27 sts for neck and work in stocking st the rest of row (= 22-24-25-27-30-34 sts). Finish each shoulder separately in stocking st. Continue to cast off 1 st on next row towards the neck = 21-23-24-26-29-33 sts remain on the shoulder. When a total of 5 rows have been worked after sts were slipped back on needle, cast off with P from WS. The entire back piece measures approx. 55-57-59-61-65-69 cm.

Knit up 40 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm inside edge st along the right side of the section in stocking st at the bottom of back piece, then work the 41-45-49-53-61-69 sts from stitch holder 1 back on needle = 81-85-89-93-101-109 sts. Turn and K 1 row from WS – AT THE SAME TIME cast off the first 2 sts (= towards armhole). Insert 2 markers in the piece as follows from RS: 1st marker after 25-25-26-27-27-28 sts and 2nd marker after a total of 50-50-52-54-54-56 sts (insert markers without working the row).
Continue in garter st back and forth – while AT THE SAME TIME working SHORT ROWS – see explanation above!
ARMHOLES: At the same time cast off at beg of all rows beg from armhole: 2 sts 2-2-2-2-3-3 more times and then 1 st 2-4-6-8-8-10 times. 73-75-77-79-85-91 sts remain on needle. Continue with short rows until 6-6-6-8-8-10 rows have been worked at the top by armhole after last cast off. On next row worked from bottom edge, cast on 1 new st at the end of row towards armhole, repeat inc at the end of every row towards armhole 1-3-5-7-7-9 more times, then cast on 2 sts 3-3-3-3-4-4 times. 81-85-89-93-101-109 sts now remain on needle and side piece measures approx. 6-8-10-12-14-16 cm at the top (and approx. 12-16-20-24-28-32 cm at the bottom). LOOSELY cast off all sts.

Work the 41-45-49-53-61-69 sts from stitch holder 3 on to circular needle size 3.5 mm, then knit up 40 sts down along left side of back piece inside 1 edge st = 81-85-89-93-101-109 sts. K 2 rows over all sts - at the same time on 2nd row beg cast off for armhole as on right side piece. On next row (i.e. from bottom edge) beg short rows (first insert markers as on right side). Continue as on right side piece.

Cast on 41-43-45-47-51-55 sts (incl 6 band sts towards mid front and 1 edge st in the side) on needle size 3.5 mm with Muskat. Work 6 rows in garter st. Switch to needle size 4 mm and continue in stocking st but with 6 band sts and 1 edge st in the side worked in garter st until finished measurements. When piece measures 11-12-12-13-13-14 cm, work as follows (beg from RS): 6 band sts in garter st, 2-3-4-5-7-9 sts in stocking st, diagram M.2 (= 29 sts), 3-4-5-6-8-10 sts in stocking st and 1 edge st in garter st.
BUTTON HOLES: When piece measures 15-16-17-18-18-20 cm, cast off for BUTTON HOLES - see explanation above.
COLLAR: At the same time when piece measures 28-29-30-31-33-35 cm, beg to inc for collar. Inc inside outermost band st by making 1 YO. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes. Repeat inc on every other row a total of 14 times and then on every 4th row 5 times (inc 19 sts in total, i.e. 25 sts in garter st incl 6 band sts after last inc).
NECK DEC: At the same time when piece measures 31-32-33-34-36-38 cm, dec 1 st for neckline - SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every row from RS a total of 13-13-14-14-15-15 times.
ARMHOLES: When piece measures 41-43-45-47-51-55 cm, cast off 1 st in the side for armhole.
After all inc and dec there are 46-48-49-51-54-58 sts on needle. When diagram M.2 has been worked, continue in stocking st over these sts. Work until piece measures 55-57-59-61-65-69 cm in total (adjust according to back piece). Now cast off the outermost 21-23-24-26-29-33 sts on the shoulder (cast off from WS to avoid cutting the thread when continuing with collar), work the rest of row (= 25 sts remain). Continue in garter st over these sts as follows: * 2 rows in garter st over all sts, 2 rows in garter st over only the outermost 18 sts (i.e. towards mid front) *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx. 7-7-7½-7½-8-8 cm at the inside on the most narrow part (it will then measure the double at the edge).
Putting the sts on a stitch holder now and sewing collar tog mid back with grafting/kitchener sts will look nicer, but you can also cast off and sew the collar tog with stitches.

Work as right front piece but reversed and without button holes. Cast off shoulder sts from RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 52-54-56-60-62-66 sts (incl 1 edge st each side) on needle size 3.5 mm. Work 4 cm in garter st. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures 10 cm, inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 2-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm a total of 10-11-12-12-14-14 times = 72-76-80-84-90-94 sts. When piece measures 33-32-31-29-27-25 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), cast off for sleeve cap at beg of every row in each side: 3 sts 1 time, then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 38-38-38-37-36-35 cm, finally cast off 3 sts 1 time in each side, then cast off the remaining sts. Sleeve measures approx. 39-39-39-38-37-36 cm.

Sew the shoulder seams. Sew the 2 collar parts tog mid back by using either grafting/kitchener sts or stitches and sew on to back piece.
Sew front piece to the edge pieces in garter st - sew inside 1 edge st on front piece and inside cast off edge on edge piece. Sew sleeve seams inside 1 edge st and sew in the sleeves. Sew on buttons.


= K from RS, P from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= 1 BOBBLE: Work 4 sts in the same st by working alternately in front and back loop of st, then work 4 rows in stocking st back and forth over these 4 sts, then pass second st on right needle over first st, third st over first st and fourth st over first st = 1 st remains
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
