K back and forth on all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in 1 pattern repetition seen from RS.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next row work YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Loosely cast on 170-184-196-218-234-248 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Bomull-Lin. Work 4 rows in garter st - read explanation above.
Work next row (= RS) as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, work A.1 9-9-9-10-10-10 times in total (= 19-19-19-21-21-21 sts on right band), work in stockinette st until 19-19-19-21-21-21 sts remain, work A.1 9-9-9-10-10-10 times in total, finish with 1 edge st in garter st (= 19-19-19-21-21-21 sts on left band).
Continue with A.1 on band in each side and in stockinette st over the middle sts. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½'', insert 2 markers; 47-50-53-59-63-66 sts in from each side (= 76-84-90-100-108-116 sts between markers on back piece).
On next row bind off 3-4-5-6-7-8 sts for armholes on each side of both markers (= 6-8-10-12-14-16 bind off sts in each side).
Now divide the piece and finish each part separately.

= 70-76-80-88-94-100 sts. Continue in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''. Then bind off the middle 20-22-22-24-24-26 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 24-26-28-31-34-36 sts remain on the shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm / 24½''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28½''.

= 44-46-48-53-56-58 sts. Continue in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in the side and 19-19-19-21-21-21 band sts mid front until piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm / 24½''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28½''.
On beg of next row from RS bind off the first 24-26-28-31-34-36 sts for shoulder = 20-20-20-22-22-22 sts remain on band.
Continue with A.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side until band measures 9-10-10-10-10-11 cm / 3½"-4"-4"-4"-4"-4½" from shoulder.
At the beg of the next 3 rows from RS bind off the first 5 sts = 5-5-5-7-7-7 sts remain.
Loosely bind off these sts on next row from RS.

Work as left front piece but reversed.

Worked back and forth on needle. Loosely cast on 35-37-39-39-41-43 sts and work 4 rows in garter st.
Work next row (= RS) as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, K 15-16-17-17-18-19, work A.2 over the next 3 sts, K 15-16-17-17-18-19, finish with 1 edge st in garter st.
Continue in stockinette st with A.2 over the middle 3 sts until finished measurements.
When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc 1 st inside 1 edge st in each side - Read INCREASE TIP above.
Repeat inc every 6½-5½-4½-4-3½-3½ cm / 2½"-2 1/4"-1 3/4"-1½"-1 1/4"-1 1/4" 6-7-8-9-10-10 more times (7-8-9-10-11-11 times in total) = 49-53-57-59-63-65 sts.
When piece measures 49-48-47-45-44-42 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-18½"-17 3/4"-17 1/4"-16½", insert a marker in each side of sleeve (for assembly).
When piece measures 51-50-50-49-48-47 cm / 20"-19 3/4"-19 3/4"-19 1/4"-19"-18½" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), loosely bind off all sts.

Sew shoulder seams inside bind off edges. Sew bind off edge on bands tog, WS against WS. Sew bands along neckline in the back of neck.
Sew in sleeves, sew sleeve seams inside 1 edge st - NOTE: The section worked after the marker at the top of sleeve, should fit the bind off for armhole.

= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
