PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show pattern from RS.

RAGLAN:
From RS:
Beg 3 sts before marker: P 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), P 2 twisted tog.

From WS:
Beg 3 sts before marker: K 2 twisted tog, P 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), K 2 tog.

KNITTING TIP:
If knitting tension is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan dec will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra row without dec evenly spaced between dec.
--------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up. Cast on 232-252-272-296-320-360 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Lima. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and K next round – AT THE SAME TIME dec 48-52-56-60-64-72 sts evenly = 184-200-216-236-256-288 sts. Continue in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Insert a marker in each side = 92-100-108-118-128-144 sts between markers. When piece measures 6 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 inc). Repeat inc when piece measures 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm and 24-25-26-27-28-29 cm = 196-212-228-248-268-300 sts. When piece measures 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm, work according to A.1, when A.1 has been worked one time vertically, work according to A.2. Work A.2 for 10 cm, then work A.1 one time. Continue with A.2. When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm, cast off 4 sts on each side of every marker = 90-98-106-116-126-142 sts on front and back piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 68-68-72-72-76-76 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Lima. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and K next round – AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-12-14-12-14-12 sts evenly = 54-56-58-60-62-64 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. When piece measures 8 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 11-8-7-6-4-3½ cm 4-5-6-7-10-11 more times = 64-68-72-76-84-88 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 37-37-36-36-35-35 cm, work according to A.1, when A.1 has been worked one time vertically, work according to A.2. Work A.2 for 10 cm, then work A.1 one time. Continue with A-2 - work the inc sts in pattern. When piece measures 55-55-54-54-53-53 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width), adjust so that you are on same round in A.2 as on body, bind off 4 sts on each side of marker = 56-60-64-68-76-80 sts. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.
