GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Dec 2 sts in every transition between body and sleeves.
Dec as follows from RS:
Beg 3 sts before marker and work as follows: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 192-208-240-256-288-320 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Cotton Merino or Belle. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. On next round work A.1 (= 16 sts) over all sts (12-13-15-16-18-20 repetitions). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 168-182-210-224-252-280 sts on round. Insert 2 markers in the piece; 1 at the beg of round and one after 84-91-105-112-126-140 sts (= sides). Continue in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8 cm, dec 1 st on each side of markers (= 4 sts dec), repeat dec every 3 cm 4 more times = 148-162-190-204-232-260 sts. When piece measures 26 cm, inc 1 st on each side of each marker (= 4 sts inc), repeat inc every 4-4½-4½-5-5-5½ cm 3 more times = 164-178-206-220-248-276 sts. When piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm, cast off for armholes in each side as follows: Cast off the first 4 sts on round, work until 4 sts remain before the other marker, cast off the next 8 sts, work until 4 sts remain, cast off these 4 sts. There are 74-81-95-102-116-130 sts on back piece and front piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 45-47-49-51-53-55 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with Cotton Merino or Belle. Work 2 ridges. Insert 1 marker at the beg of round. Then work as follows: K 15-16-17-18-19-20, A.2 (= 15 sts), K 15-16-17-18-19-20. Continue this pattern upwards AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Inc every 3½-3-3-2½-2-2 cm 11-12-13-14-16-17 more times = 69-73-77-81-87-91 sts. Work inc sts in stocking st. When piece measures 51-50-50-49-49-48 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer raglan dec and larger neck width) cast off the 4 sts on each side of marker = 61-65-69-73-79-83 sts. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 270-292-328-350-390-426 sts. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body (= 4 markers). Continue in stocking st over sts on body and pattern and in stocking st as before on sleeves, AT THE SAME TIME on next round beg dec for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other round 20-22-23-23-23-24 more times and then on every round 0-0-1-3-6-7 times. After all dec for raglan 102-108-128-134-150-170 sts remain on round. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 7-7-23-25-37-53 sts evenly = 95-101-105-109-113-117 sts. Cast off.

ASSEMBLY: Sew the opening under the sleeves.
