GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. See beg for your size in A.5.

Worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up. Cast on 224-240-264-296-328-360 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above, then work A.1 over all sts.
Work A.1 2 times vertically, then work A.2.
When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 168-180-198-222-246-270 sts on needle.
Work A.3, over all sts a total of 9-9-10-10-11-11 times vertically.
Piece measures approx. 40-40-43-43-46-46 cm / 15 3/4"-15 3/4"-17"-17"-18"-18".
Insert 2 markers in the piece; 1 at the beg of round and 1 after 84-90-99-111-123-135 sts (= in the sides).
Work 2 ridges over all sts, then work in stockinette st. When piece measures 53-55-58-60-64-66 cm / 21"-21½"-22 3/4"-23½"-25 1/4"-26", work 2 ridges over 4 sts in each side (= 2 sts on each side of every marker), work the other sts as before.
Then bind off the middle 4 sts in each side for armholes = 80-86-95-107-119-131 sts on front/back piece.
Now piece measures approx. 54-56-59-61-65-67 cm / 21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4"-24"-25½"-26½".

Work next round as follows: Work in stockinette st over front piece, cast on 81-81-89-89-97-97 new sts over armhole, work in stockinette st over back piece, cast on 81-81-89-89-97-97 new sts over the other armhole = 322-334-368-392-432-456 sts.
Work 3 rounds over all sts as follows: Work in garter st over the 81-81-89-89-97-97 new sts for sleeves each side, work the other sts in stockinette st.
Insert 1 marker in each side of the new sts for sleeve in each side (= 4 markers). READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!

Then work as follows: Stockinette st over the first 80-86-95-107-119-131 sts (= front piece), A.4 A (= 8 sts), A.4 B (= 8 sts) 8-8-9-9-10-10 times in total, A.4 C (= 9 sts), work in stockinette st over the next 80-86-95-107-119-131 sts (= back piece), A.4 A (= 8 sts), A.4 B (= 8 sts) 8-8-9-9-10-10 times in total, finish with A.4 C (= 8 sts).
Continue this pattern while AT THE SAME TIME dec for raglan on front/back piece, work A.4 on sleeve without dec.

Dec for raglan every other round (4 dec per round) - as follows:
Dec as follows at beg of front/back piece – beg straight after marker: K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, work 1 st, psso.
Dec as follows at the end of front/back piece: Beg 3 sts before marker: K 2 tog, K 1.

When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically (= dec 6 times on front and back piece), work A.5 over A.4 – continue in stockinette st and with dec every other round on front/back piece. Switch to a shorter circular needle when needed.
Continue until A.5 has been worked vertically (20-20-22-22-24-24 dec in total on front and back piece) = 118-130-140-164-180-204 sts remain on needle.
Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 0-4-10-30-42-58 sts evenly = 118-126-130-134-138-146 sts.
Bind off.


= K from RS, P from WS
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= this st has been bound off
