NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 248 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 64) = 3.88. I.e. in this example K approx. every 3rd and 4th st tog.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Dec 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Beg 5 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 6 (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Inc 1 st on each side of markers as follows: Beg 3 st before marker, 1 YO, K 6, 1 YO. On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3 – choose diagram for correct size. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 248-272-296-336-376-408 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with light gray. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 64-68-72-84-96-100 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 184-204-224-252-280-308 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side = 92-102-112-126-140-154 sts between markers on front and back piece. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3 cm / 1'' a total of 3 times in all sizes = 172-192-212-240-268-296 sts. When piece measures 20 cm / 8'', inc 1 st on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 2½-2½-2½-4½-4½-4½ cm / 7/8''-7/8"-7/8"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4" 5-5-5-4-4-4 times in total = 192-212-232-256-284-312 sts. When piece measures 32-33-34-35-36-37 cm / 12½''-13½''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½'' (inc should now be done), work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 - READ KNITTING TIP.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68-68-72-72 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with light gray. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm / 1½''.

When piece measures 8-11-10-10-7-10 cm / 3"-4½"-4"-4"-2 3/4"-4'', inc 2 sts mid under sleeve. Repeat inc every 4-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm / 1½"-1"-1"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4" 10-12-12-14-15-17 times in total = 76-80-84-88-92-96 sts. When piece measures 44-44-43-43-42-42 cm / 17 1/4"-17 1/4"-17"-17"-16½"-16½" (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders - and inc should now be done), work pattern according to diagram A.1.

När man skall maska av för ärmhålen på fram och bakstycke så blir det lite galet i beskrivningen. Det börjar ju med 53 maskor, sen 10 anmärkningar. 106 maskor, 10 avmaskningar och sen 53 maskor för att avsluta bak. Står ej så i beskrivningen.

Camille 05.09.2017 - 22:24:

Bonjour, au niveau de l'empiecement après avoir mis les manches sur les mêmes aiguilles que le corps au niveau des emmanchures, où doit on commencer le tour endroit en naturel ?

Bonjour Camille, commencez à la transition d'une des manches et du dos, soit avant le dos, soit après le dos. Bon tricot!

Mooi model! Ik had graag de basiskleur grijs vervangen door petroleum(blauw). Met welke kleur kan ik dan combineren om het zwart bovenaan te vervangen?
