NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American 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 stocking st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension 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 with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. 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 and work in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3 cm a total of 3 times in all sizes = 172-192-212-240-268-296 sts. When piece measures 20 cm, 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 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 (inc should now be done), work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 - READ KNITTING TIP. After A.1 K 1 round with off white as follows: Cast off 4-4-5-5-6-6 sts for armhole, work 88-98-106-118-130-144 sts (= front piece), cast off 8-8-10-10-12-12 sts for armhole, work 88-98-106-118-130-144 sts (= back piece) and cast off the last 4-4-5-5-6-6 sts for armhole (piece measures approx. 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm). Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
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 with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-8-8-8-10-10 sts evenly = 56-56-60-60-62-62 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work in stocking st. When piece measures 8-11-10-10-7-10 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve. Repeat inc every 4-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm 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 (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders - and inc should now be done), work pattern according to diagram A.1. After A.1 K 1 round with off white while casting off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-12 sts under sleeve = 68-72-74-78-80-84 sts remain on needle (piece now measures approx. 48-48-47-47-46-46 cm). Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 312-340-360-392-420-456 sts. K 1 round with off white while dec 8-4-8-8-4-8 sts evenly = 304-336-352-384-416-448 sts. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size and beg on round marked with arrow in diagram for correct size).
AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 38-42-44-48-52-56 sts evenly (i.e. K every 7th and 8th st tog) = 266-294-308-336-364-392 sts.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 38-42-44-48-52-56 sts evenly again (i.e. K every 6th and 7th st tog) = 228-252-264-288-312-336 sts.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 4-12-8-0-8-0 sts evenly.
SIZE S: K every 56th and 57th st tog,

On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 28-30-32-36-38-42 sts evenly (i.e. K every 6th and 7th st tog) = 168-180-192-216-228-252 sts. Finish A.2 (finish after round marked with arrow for correct size).

Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (choose diagram for correct size). AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 5 in diagram dec 16-12-8-16-20-28 sts evenly as follows:
SIZE S: K alternately every 9th and 10th st and every 10th and 11th st tog,
SIZE M: K every 14th and 15th st tog,
SIZE L: K every 23rd and 24th st tog,
SIZE XL: K alternately every 12th and 13th st and every 13th and 14th st tog,
SIZE XXL: K alternately every 10th and 11th st and every 11th and 12th st tog,

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Insert 1 marker mid back. Beg mid back and work with light grey as follows: K 8 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 16 sts back.
