See diagrams A-1 to A-4 – the diagrams show 1 repetition of the pattern. Diagrams A-2 to A-4 are worked in stockinette st.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
LOOSELY cast on 176-192-208-224-240-256 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with camel (it is important to cast on loosely to avoid a tight cast on edge). P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Continue with diagram A-1 (= 11-12-13-14-15-16 repetitions on the round).
When A-1 has been worked, 154-168-182-196-210-224 sts remain on needle.
Continue in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 77-84-91-98-105-112 sts (these marks the sides). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 15 cm / 6'', dec 1 st on each side of each marker, repeat dec every 6-6-6-8-12-19 cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2 3/8"-3 1/8"-4 3/4"-7½" 4-4-4-3-2-1 more time = 134-148-162-180-198-216 sts.
When piece measures 43-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17"-17 3/4"-18"-18½"-19"-19 1/4", work diagram A-2 one time vertically –
AT THE SAME TIME, evenly on 1st round, dec 2 sts in size S and inc 2 sts in size M = 132-150-162-180-198-216 sts.
AT THE SAME TIME on last round, bind off 8 sts in each side for all sizes (i.e. 4 sts on each side of every marker) = 116-134-146-164-182-200 sts, cut the thread.
Piece measures approx. 49-51-52-53-54-55 cm / 19 1/4"-20"-20½"-21"-21 1/4"-21½".
Put piece aside and work the sleeve edges.

Worked in the round on a short circular needle.
Cast on 68-68-68-76-76-80 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with camel. Work 5 rounds rib = K 2/P 2. Then K 1 round while at the same time dec 8-8-8-10-10-8 sts evenly = 60-60-60-66-66-72 sts.
Finally K 1 round while at the same time casting/binding off the first 8 sts for armhole = 52-52-52-58-58-64 sts, cut the thread. Knit another sleeve edge.

Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 220-238-250-280-298-328 sts. Then beg every round from mid back – insert a marker here. Work 1 round with camel while at the same time adjusting the no of sts to 220-242-242-264-286-308.
Continue with 0-0-2-4-6-9 rounds in camel before working diagram A-3 (= 10-11-11-12-13-14 repetitions on the round). After A-3, there are 200-220-220-240-260-280 sts on needle. Work 1 round with camel while at the same time dec 10-20-10-20-30-40 sts evenly = 190-200-210-220-230-240 sts. Continue with diagram A-4.
When A-4 has been worked, there are 76-80-84-88-92-96 sts on needle. Work with camel until finished measurements. Yoke measures approx. 21-21-22-23-24-25 cm / 8 1/4"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9½"-9 3/4" vertically.
Then work an elevation in back of neck as follows in stockinette st with camel: K 7 sts past marker mid back, turn, tighten thread and P 14 sts back, turn, tighten thread and K 21 sts, turn, continue to work 7 sts more on every turn until a total of 56-56-56-70-70-70 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 round until mid back again.

Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. K 1 round with camel while at the same time inc 8 sts evenly = 84-88-92-96-100-104 sts. Continue with rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm / 1 1/8'', then bind off with K over K and P over P.
