Not sure which size you should choose? Then it might help you to know that the model in the picture is approx. 5 ft 7 in and uses size S or M. If you are making a sweater, cardigan, dress or similar garment, you will find a graphic with the measurements of the finished garment (in cm) at the bottom of the pattern.

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

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all rounds/rows in pattern seen from RS.

INCREASE TIP 1:
All inc are done from RS.
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row P YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of YO instead of front) to avoid holes. NOTE: Work the new sts in stockinette st.

INCREASE TIP 2:
Work until 1 st remains before marker in the side, 1 YO, 2 sts in stockinette st, 1 YO. Repeat in the other side. On next round K the YOs. They should make holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The piece is worked top down. Work first front and back piece separately, back and forth down to armholes, then work in the round.

BACK PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows:
Cast on 16-17-17-18-20-20 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Belle. Work as follows (1st row = from RS): 3 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above (= towards the neck), work 10-11-11-12-14-14 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards armhole). Continue like this until 4 rows in stockinette st have been work inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. On next row inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck - READ INCREASE TIP 1 = 17-18-18-19-21-21 sts. Work 1 row from WS and put piece aside.
Work left shoulder as follows:
Cast on and work as right shoulder but reversed. I.e. inc 1 st before the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck on 5th row in stockinette st. Work 1 row from WS. Turn and work as before over all sts. At the end of row cast on 35-35-37-37-39-39 new sts for neck and then work the 17-18-18-19-21-21 sts from right shoulder on to needle = 69-71-73-75-81-81 sts. Work the new sts cast on for neck in garter st. When 2 ridges have been worked over these sts, continue with 2 rows in stockinette st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Now work pattern as follows on next row from RS (NOTE: Beg on 13th row in A.1- A.3, see star in diagram): Work 3 sts in garter st, 2-3-4-5-0-0 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 5 sts), A.2 (= 16 sts) 3-3-3-3-4-4 times in width, A.3 (= 6 sts), 2-3-4-5-0-0 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st. Repeat A.1-A.3 vertically until finished measurements. When piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-2 3/4'' from cast-on edge, inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side for armhole. Repeat inc on every row from RS 2-4-6-9-11-16 more times = 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts. Work 1 row from WS after last inc and put piece aside.

FRONT PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows:
Cast on 16-17-17-18-20-20 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Belle. Work as follows (1st row = from RS): 3 sts in garter st (= towards armhole), work 10-11-11-12-14-14 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards the neck).
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue like this, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 7-8-7-8-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3"-2 3/4"-3"-3"-3½"'', inc for neck and when piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-2 3/4'' inc for armholes the same way as on back piece. NOTE: In size XXXL beg inc for armholes before inc for neck.
INCREASE NECK:
Inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck. Repeat inc on every row from RS 4-4-5-5-6-6 more times = 5-5-6-6-7-7 sts inc for neck. When all inc are done, work 1 row from WS. Put piece aside.

Work left shoulder as follows:
Cast on and work as right shoulder but reversed. I.e. inc 1 st before the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck.
When all inc for neck are done, work 1 row from WS. Turn and work as before over all sts. At the end of row cast on 27 new sts in all sizes for neck, then work all sts from right shoulder on to needle. Continue back and forth like this (continue inc for armholes) until 2 ridges have been worked over the new sts for neck. On next row from RS work pattern A.4 (= 27 sts) over the middle 27 sts on needle. NOTE: Work A.4 1 time vertically but the repetition will not be finished vertically before front and back pieces are put tog and you are working in the round on body.
When all inc for armholes are done, there are 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts on needle. After last inc work 1 row from WS. Turn and work over all sts on front piece, cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts for armhole, insert a marker in the middle of these new sts (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 sts on each side of marker), work 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts from back piece on to same circular needle and cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts for armhole, insert a marker in the middle of these new sts (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 sts on each side of marker) = 158-174-190-210-234-258 sts on round. Beg of round is after the last 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts cast on.

BODY:
Then work in the round on circular needle. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now continue with pattern as follows: Work 3 sts in garter st, continue in stockinette st with pattern as before over the next 69-75-81-89-99-109 sts - NOTE: Continue pattern A.4 until entire repetition has been worked 1 time vertically, then work in stockinette st over all sts on front piece, 10-12-14-16-18-20 sts in garter st, stockinette st over the next 5-8-11-15-12-17 sts, continue pattern A.1-A.3 as before over the next 59-59-59-59-75-75 sts, 5-8-11-15-12-17 sts in stockinette st, 7-9-11-13-15-17 sts in garter st. When 2 ridges have been worked over the new sts for armholes, continue these sts in stockinette st until finished measurements. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', inc 2 st in each side of piece - READ INCREASE TIP 2! Repeat inc every 4th round until finished measurements. When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17 1/4''-17 3/4''-18''-18½''-19''-19 1/4'' – adjust to finish after 10th or 20th round in A.1-A.3 - work 1 round in stockinette st. There are now approx. 262-278-298-318-346-374 sts on round depending on where the pattern is finished. Then work 2 ridges. Bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams tog. Make sure that to avoid a tight seam.
