Gauge: 24 sts x 32 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"]

Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.

Pattern: See charts. The pattern is seen from the right side. Arrows in the chart for Pattern 3 indicate starting points in the instructions below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Body: Cast on 316-340-364 sts; join and establish pattern as follows: place a marker, knit 21-27-33 sts of Pattern 3 - start with K 1 at arrow A, Pattern 1 (49 sts), Pattern 2 (18 sts), Pattern 1 (49 sts), 42-54-66 sts of Pattern 3 - start with P 2 at arrow B (place a marker in the middle of these 42-54-66 sts), Pattern 1 (49 sts), Pattern 2 (18 sts), Pattern 1 (49 sts), 21-27-33 sts of Pattern 3 - start with P 2 at arrow B. Each marker should have a K 1 on each side of it. Continue with pattern as established until the piece measures 32-35-37 cm, then bind off 4 sts each side of each marker for armhole. Knit each side separately.

Front: = 150-162-174 sts. Bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 3 sts 1-1-2 times, 2 sts 3-4-6 times and 1 st 3-5-4 times = 126-130-130 sts remain on needles. Continue the pattern keeping 1 st in garter st at each side. When the piece measures approx. 47-50-53 cm put the center 18 sts on a st holder for the neck. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 6 sts 1 time, 4 sts 2 times and 1 st 4 times = 36-38-38 sts remain on each shoulder. Continue until piece measures approx. 54-57-60 cm, bind off.

Back: = 150-162-174 sts. Bind off for armhole as on front = 126-130-130 sts. When the piece measures approx. 53-56-59 cm - adjust to end so that there will be 1 more repeat of Pattern 2 (that is, 20 rows more) on the back than when sts were put on a st holder for the front.
Now put the center 50 sts on a st holder for the neck. Bind off 2 sts at each neck edge on the next row = 36-38-38 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures approx. 54-57-60 cm - or length to match front.

Sleeve: Cast on 67-67-79 sts on double-pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Establish pattern on first row as follows: 9-9-15 sts of Pattern 3 - start with K 1 at arrow A, Pattern 1 (49 sts), 9-9-15 sts of Pattern 3 - start with P 2 at arrow B. The marker should have a K 1 on each side of it. Continue with pattern. When the piece measures 6 cm inc 1 st each side of marker (make incs inside the K 1 at each side of marker) 24-24-18 times:
Sizes S/M + M/L: every 5 rows
Size XL: alternately every 6th and 7th row
- knit the increased sts in Pattern 3 as you go along = 115-115-115 sts. When the piece measures 47-46-44 cm bind off 4 sts each side of marker and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 3 sts 1-1-1 time, 2 sts 5-4-3 times, 1 st 4-9-14 times, then bind off 2 sts at each side every other row until the piece measures 57-58-58 cm and then bind off 3 sts each side 1 time. On the next row, K 2 tog over the K sts in cables of Pattern 1 (8 sts decreased), then bind off the remaining sts. Sleeve measures approx. 58-59-59 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.
Neck: Pick up around the neck on double-pointed needles as follows: 50 sts from st holder on back, 28 sts down to front st holder, 18 sts from front st holder, 28 sts up other side of neck = 124 sts. Continue Pattern from body over the center 52 sts of front and back, knit 10 sts each side of pattern as follows: K 2, P 2, K 2, P 2, K 2. Bind off when the collar measures approx. 8 - 10 cm - adjust to end on a row without cables. Sew in sleeves.

I believe the English cable directions are wrong for one of the crossovers-- For the fourth cable crossover, it says, "put 2 sts on cable needle in back of work, P1, K2 from cable needle." I believe the cable needle should go to the front instead. It looks very strange when done as in the instructions.

Dear Mrs Padia, you were right, text for 5th and 6th symbols has been updated. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Your system won't tell me which are the "forbidden words or links" in my original draft of this message, which is not very helpful, as I don't know which words to omit. I like the pattern but couldn't knit it from such a small and fuzzy image, which won't magnify very well. Would you be able to put a better image online, like that used for 114.8 ?

Dear Mrs Calderbank, a new diagram is now available. Happy knitting!

Hallo, in der Zeichenerklärung scheint ein Fehler zu sein: bei dem 6. Zeichen sind nur 3 Kästchen vorgesehen und es sollen lt. Beschreibung: 2 M auf 1 Hilfsnadel hinter die Arb legen, 2 re, 2re von der Hilfsnadel - somit sind es 4 M die "gearbeitet" werden. Könnten Sie den M 2 in Reihe 1 noch mal kontrollieren? mir scheint der 3 Zopf anders als in das Muster passend. Zudem möchte ich erwähnen, dass die Musterrapporte sehr schlecht zu erkennen sind. Vielen Dank für die Info

Sie haben Recht, es hatte sich in der Übersetzung ein Fehler eingeschlichen, die beiden Texte zum 5. und 6. Zeichen waren vertauscht. Der Fehler ist jetzt korrigiert. Nun viel Spaß beim Weiterstricken!
