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

Body: Cast on 124-148 sts on smaller circular needles; join and place a marker at the join. Establish pattern on the first row as follows: Pattern 2 over 24-30 sts, Pattern 1 (22 sts), Pattern 2 over 78-96 sts. Continue in pattern as established for 5 rows then change to larger circular needles. When the piece measures 8 cm [3-1/8"] put a marker at each side as follows: the cables of Pattern 1 at center front - count from 1st st of cable in Pattern 1 and 22-28 sts to the right, place marker (in the center of 3 knit sts). Count from last st of cable in Pattern 1 and 22-28 sts to the left, place marker (in the center of 3 knit sts). Front = 66-78 sts, back = 58-70 sts.

On the next row inc 1 st at each side of the 3 knit sts with the markers (4 sts increased on the row) - purl the increased sts. Repeat increase when the piece measures 17 and 26 cm [6.75" and 10.25"] - purl the increased sts (there are now 3 P sts at each side of the 3 K sts with the markers) = 136-160 sts.
When the piece measures 34-35 cm [13-3/8" - 13.75"] bind off 5-7 sts at each side for armhole (the 3 K sts + 1-2 P sts each side of the K sts). Knit each piece separately.

Front: = 65-75 sts. Dec 1 st at each side for armhole every other row - see knitting tips 4-9 times = 57-57 sts. When the piece measures 50-52 cm [19.75" - 20.5"] put the center 19 sts on a st holder for the neck. Continue to dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 3 times - see knitting tips = 16 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 56-58 cm [22" - 22-7/8"].
Back: = 61-71 sts. Bind off for armhole as on front = 53-53 sts. Continue until the piece measures 56-58 cm [22" - 22-7/8"]. Now put the center 21 sts on a st holder for the neck and bind off the remaining 16 sts on each shoulder.

Sleeve: Cast on 36-36 sts on smaller double-pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Pattern 2 over all sts, and when the piece measures 5 cm [2"] change to larger double-pointed needles - continue in pattern as established. When the piece measures 10 cm [4"] inc 1 st at each side of the K 3 at the marker 10-12 times every 4-3 cm [1.5" - 1-3/8"] - purl the increased sts = 56-60 sts. When the piece measures 49-46 cm [19.25" - 18-1/8"] bind off 5-7 sts at the marker (2-3 - 3-4sts each side of marker) and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Continue to bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 3 sts 1-1 time, 2 sts 1-2 times, 1 st 3-8 times, then bind off 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 58-59 cm [22-7/8" - 23.25"]. Bind off the remaining sts.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams so that K and P sts line up. Pick up sts around the neck on double-pointed needles 6 as follows: 21 sts from st holder on back, pick up 6 sts to the sts on holder at front, 19 sts from st holder and then 6 sts up other side = 52 sts. Continue with cables at center front and knit Pattern 2 over the remaining sts so that you match the ribs from the back. When the collar measures approx. 7 cm [2.75"] change to Ull-Bouclé. Knit 1 row in pattern and then bind off in pattern.
Sew the sleeve and set sleeves into Body .
