INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly on needle, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 114 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased to be done (e.g. 10) = 11.4.
In this example decrease by knitting alternately approx. every 10th and 11th stitch and every 11th and 12th stitch together. When increasing make 1 yarn over after alternately approx. every 11th and 12th stitch. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.

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. Use a larger needle size when working pattern if needed.

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in every transition between sleeves and body as follows: Work until 1 stitch remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Increase 8 stitches in total on every increase round.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body): 
Work until 8 stitches remain before marker thread in the side, make 1 yarn over, knit 16 (marker thread is in the middle of these 16 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Work the increased stitches in stocking stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Yoke and body are worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Work sleeve edges in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down.
An elevation in the back of neck can be worked to get a better fit so that yoke is somewhat higher in the neck. This elevation can be skipped, to make the neck the same at the front and back - see explanation on elevation in pattern.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 114-117-123-129-135-141 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with pearl grey. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1/purl 2) for 3 cm. When rib is done, knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 10-9-11-9-7-9 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 104-108-112-120-128-132 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm.
Now work elevation in the back of neck or start to work the yoke if you don’t want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this paragraph if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at beginning of round = mid back. Begin from right side with pearl grey and knit 9-10-11-12-13-14 stitches past marker, turn, tighten yarn and purl 18-20-22-24-26-28. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 27-30-33-36-39-42, turn, tighten yarn and purl 36-40-44-48-52-56.
Continue back and forth like this by working 9-10-11-12-13-14 stitches more every on every turn until the middle 72-80-88-96-104-112 stitches have been worked and work last row from wrong side. Turn piece, tighten yarn and knit until mid back.

YOKE:
= 104-108-112-120-128-132 stitches. Read KNITTING TIP and work A.1 in the round (= 26-27-28-30-32-33 repetitions of 4 stitches). AT THE SAME TIME on every round marked with arrow in A.1 increase evenly as explained below – remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Arrow-1: Increase 20-24-24-32-32-32 stitches evenly = 124-132-136-152-160-164 stitches.
Arrow-2: Increase 4-4-4-16-14-16 stitches evenly = 128-136-140-168-174-180 stitches.
There is now room for 32-34-35-28-29-30 repetitions of 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches. Then increase as shown in diagram.
Arrow-3: There are now 256-272-280-280-290-300 stitches on needle and every repetition goes over 8-8-8-10-10-10 stitches. Increase AT THE SAME TIME 8-4-8-14-16-12 stitches evenly on this round = 264-276-288-294-306-312 stitches. Increases in S, M and L are now done.
Arrow-4 (applies only to XL, XXL and XXXL): Increase 10-6-8 stitches evenly.
There are now 264-276-288-304-312-320 stitches on needle.
Work until A.1 has been worked. Then knit 1 round with pearl grey while increasing 4-0-4-4-4-0 stitches evenly = 268-276-292-308-316-320 stitches.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches):
Insert first marker thread after the first 40-41-43-47-50-53 stitches on row (= ½ back piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 54-56-60-60-58-54 stitches (= sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 80-82-86-94-100-106 stitches (= front piece) and insert fourth marker thread after the next 54-56-60-60-58-54 stitches (= sleeve). 40-41-43-47-50-53 stitches remain on round after last marker thread (= ½ back piece).
Continue in the round in stocking stitch with pearl grey. AT THE SAME TIME on next round increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 stitches increased). Increase like this every other round
5-9-11-13-16-19 stitches on each side of the 4 marker threads = 308-348-380-412-444-472 stitches.
Work without increases until piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Work next round as follows: Knit 45-50-54-60-66-72 (= ½ back piece), slip the next 64-74-82-86-90-92 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve edges, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), knit 90-100-108-120-132-144 (= front piece), slip the next 64-74-82-86-90-92 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve edges, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 45-50-54-60-66-72 stitches as before (= ½ back piece). Finish body and sleeve edges separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!
BODY:
= 200-220-240-264-292-320 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches cast on = 100-110-120-132-146-160 stitches between marker threads on front and back piece. Begin round at one of the marker threads.
Continue in the round in stocking stitch with pearl grey. When piece measures 2-2-2-3-3-3 cm from division, increase 2 stitches in each side - read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 3½-3½-3½-2½-2½-2½ cm 10-10-10-12-12-12 times in total in each side = 240-260-280-312-340-368 stitches.
When piece measures 35 cm from division, knit 1 round while increasing 48-52-56-60-68-76 stitches evenly = 288-312-336-372-408-444 stitches.
Work next round as follows: * knit 1, 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above *, work from *-* the entire round. Continue rib like this for 3 cm. Then cast off by knitting but make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Top measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Slip the 64-74-82-86-90-92 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece a short circular needle size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 74-84-94-98-104-108 stitches. Knit 2-2-3-3-4-4 rounds and increase AT THE SAME TIME 1-0-2-1-1-0 stitches on first round = 75-84-96-99-105-108 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles/short circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work rib in the round = knit 1/purl 2 for 3 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve edge the same way.
