PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st before marker as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec 1 st after marker as follows: K 2 tog.

RAGLAN:
Inc differently for raglan in the different sizes:
SIZE S-M:
Inc 1 sts on each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc in total) as follows: I1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1 (= st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO. Do not work YOs twisted on next round, they should make holes, repeat inc every other round 17-19 more times.
SIZE L-XL-XXL-XXXL:
Inc 2 sts on each side of each marker (= 16 sts inc in total each round) as follows: 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1(= st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO (first and last YO is worked twisted on next round, it should not make a hole but, the 2 midle YO should be K as normal and make a hole). Repeat inc on every other round 1-1-1-3 more times.
Then inc like as follows:
Inc 1 sts at each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc in total) as follows: 1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1(= st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO. Do not K YOs twisted on next round, they should make holes. Repeat inc every other round 19-20-22-21 more times in total.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Cast on 134-134-140-144-144-148 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat or "Belle". Work A.1 (= 2 sts) over all sts. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. On next round K all sts and inc 16-20-14-22-42-46 sts evenly = 150-154-154-166-186-194 sts. On next round insert 4 markers in the midle st of each raglan as follows: Insert 1st in last st on round, K 45-47-49-55-65-71 sts (= front piece), K 1 sts and insert 2nd marker in this st, K 28-28-26-26-26-24 sts (= sleeve), K 1 sts and insert 3rd marker in this st, K 45-47-49-55-65-71 sts (= back piece), K 1 st and insert 4th marker in this st, K 28-28-26-26-26-24 sts (= sleeve). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE

Then work as follows - AT THE SAME TIME inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above. K 14-15-16-19-24-27 sts, A.2 (= 17 sts), K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 2nd marker, work RAGLAN - see explanation above, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 3rd marker, work raglan, K 1-2-3-6-11-14 sts, A.3 (= 43 sts), K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 4th marker, work raglan, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 1st marker, work raglan. Work the inc sts in stockinette st until they can be worked in pattern as shown in A.3.

When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stockinette st over all these sts. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.4 (= 57 sts) over A.3. After all inc are done there are 294-314-338-358-394-426 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm / 5½''-6''-6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½''. Continue with pattern and stockinette st as before AT THE SAME TIME work as follows: Work the first 81-87-95-103-117-129 sts (= front piece), slip the next 66-70-74-76-80-84 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of the new sts), work the next 81-87-95-103-117-129 sts (= back piece), slip the next 66-70-74-76-80-84 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of the new sts) = 174-186-202-222-250-274 sts remain on needle. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue to work A.4 and stockinette st over the remaining sts. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side of each markers in the sides (= 4 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 2½-4-4-4-4-4 cm / 7/8"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½" 5-3-3-3-3-3 more times = 150-170-186-206-234-258 sts. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stockinette st over all sts. When piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm / 7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8 ¾''-9'' insert 4 markers as follows: Work 15-17-19-21-25-27 sts, insert 1st marker, work 45-51-55-61-67-75 sts, insert 2nd marker, work 30-34-38-42-50-54 sts, insert 3rd marker, work 45-51-55-61-67-75 sts, insert 4th marker, work the remaining 15-17-19-21-25-27 sts. 1st and 2nd marker are on front piece, and 3rd and 4th marker are on back piece. Move the markers upwards when working. On next round inc 1 st before 1st and 3rd marker and 1 st after 2nd and 4th marker (= 4 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP. NOTE: No of sts mid front and mid back is the same, inc in side sts.

Repeat inc every 6th round 1 more time, then every 4th round 6-5-6-5-6-10 times, then every other round 22-18-22-18-18-8 times = 270-270-306-306-338-338 sts. On next round, inc 2-2-0-0-2-2 sts evenly = 272-272-306-306-340-340 sts. Work in stockinette st until piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾'' (or desired length, approx. 25 cm / 9 3/4'' remain). Then work A.6 (= 34 sts) 8-8-9-9-10-10 times in total in width. When A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work A.5 over all sts. Bind off.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve = 72-76-80-84-88-92 sts.
Work in stockinette st for 2 cm / 3/4'', on next round dec 8 sts evenly = 64-68-72-76-80-84 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work A.5 over all sts. Bind off. Work the other sleeve the same way.
