Gauge: 20 sts x 26 rows on larger needles in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Note! In chart M.1 6 sts in right side should be displaced first when the 6 sts gets displaced in the left side.

Body: Cast on 180-210-240 sts on smaller circular needles. Join and knit 2 rows garter st; increasing 108-126-144 sts evenly distributed on the last row as follows: * K 1, inc 1 st in the two following sts, K 1, inc 1 st in the next st *, repeat from * - * = 288-336-384 sts. Change to larger circular needles and knit Pattern 1 over all sts. Attach a marker at the center front and center back - see the arrow on the chart. When the work measures 39-41-44 cm, bind off 8 sts at each side (4 sts each side of side markers) for armholes. Front and back each = 136-160-184 sts. Knit the rest of the front and back separately.

Front: = 136-160-184 sts. Bind off at each side for armholes every other row: 4 sts 0-1-1 time, 3 sts 0-2-4 times, 2 sts 1-2-4 times, 1 st 3-3-5 times = 126-126-126 sts. Keep 1 st at each side in garter st throughout and continue in pattern.
When the work measures 50-53-56 cm, dec 16-16-16 sts evenly distributed over the center 38-38-38 sts. On the next row, bind off the 24-24-24 center sts for the neck. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 4 times, 1 st 3 times = 32-32-32 sts remain on each shoulder. When the work measures 58-61-64 cm, dec 10-10-10 sts evenly distributed on each shoulder = 22-22-22 sts. On the next row, bind off all sts.

Back: = 136-160-184 sts. Bind off for armholes as on the front = 126-126-126 sts. Keep 1 st at each armhole edge in garter st throughout and continue in pattern until the work measures 56-59-62 cm. Dec 20-20-20 sts evenly distributed over the center 54-54-54 sts. On the next row, bind off the center 34-34-34 sts. Bind off 2 sts at each neck edge every other row 2 times = 32-32-32 sts remain on each shoulder. When the work measures 58-61-64 cm, dec 10-10-10 sts evenly distributed on each shoulder = 22-22-22 sts. On the next row, bind off all sts.

Sleeve: Cast on 50-50-50 sts on smaller double pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows garter st; increasing 30-30-30 sts evenly distributed on the last row = 80-80-80 sts. Change to larger double pointed needles and establish pattern as follows: Pattern 2 over 8 sts (4 sts each side of marker), and Pattern 1 over the remaining 72 sts. Continue in pattern as established. When the work measures 6 cm, inc 1 st at each side of Pattern 2, 12-12-12 times:
Size XS: every 9 rows
Sizes S/M and L: alternately every 8 and 9 rows = 104-104-104 sts. Knit the increased sts into Pattern 1 as you go along. When the work measures 49-46-45 cm, bind off 4 sts each side of marker (the 8 sts of Pattern 2). Bind off at each side for sleeve cap every other row: 4 sts 2-0-0 times, 3 sts 1-2-1 times, 2 sts 1-8-13 times, 3 sts 1-2-2 times, 4 sts 3-1-0 times. Dec 8 sts evenly distributed over the remaining sts. On the next row bind off all sts.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Pick up approx. 90 to 100 sts around the neck on smaller double pointed needles and join. Purl 1 row (right side row), knit 4 rows stockinette st, purl 1 row, and then knit 5 rows stockinette st for facing. Bind off loosely, fold the facing over double against the wrong side and sew. Sew in the sleeves using the edge sts on the body as a seam allowance.
