INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
Top: See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1).
Head band: See diagrams A.2 to A.4.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
Begin 3 stitches before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to armholes):
Decrease inside A.2/A.3 in each side. All decreases are done from the right side.
Decrease as follows before A.3: Begin 3 stitches before A.3: Knit 2 together and knit 1.
Decrease as follows after A.2: Begin after A.2, knit 1, slip next stitch knitwise, knit next stitch, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armholes, then work front and back piece back and forth separately.

BODY:
Cast on 194-214-230-250-274-302 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Belle. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then knit 1 round.
Work next round as follows: Insert 1 marker at the beginning of round (= in the side), * work 36-41-45-48-54-61 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 25-25-25-29-29-29 stitches), 36-41-45-48-54-61 stitches in stocking stitch *, insert 1 marker thread (= in the side) and work from *-* one more time. Continue pattern in the round like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 6-6-6-8-8-8 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 6 cm 6 times in total in each side = 170-190-206-226-250-278 stitches.
When piece measures 38-39-40-41-42-43 cm, work in garter stitch over 20-22-26-28-30-32 stitches in each side (i.e. 10-11-13-14-15-16 stitches in garter stitch on each side of both marker threads), continue the remaining stitches in stocking stitch and A.1 as before. When 2 ridges have been worked in each side, work next round as follows: Cast off the first 3-4-6-7-8-9 stitches at the beginning of round for armhole, work the next 79-87-91-99-109-121 stitches as before, cast off the next 6-8-12-14-16-18 stitches for armhole, work the next 79-87-91-99-109-121 stitches as before and cast off the last 3-4-6-7-8-9 stitches for armhole. Cut the yarn. Work front and back piece back and forth separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 79-87-91-99-109-121 stitches. Continue as follows, i.e. work first row from wrong side: Work A.3 (= 7 stitches - NOTE: Begin on 2nd row in diagram and read diagram from left to right), work 20-24-26-28-33-39 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 25-25-25-29-29-29 stitches), 20-24-26-28-33-39 stitches in stocking stitch and finish with A.2 (= 7 stitches – NB: Begin on 2nd row in diagram and read diagram from left to right). Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side decrease 1 stitch in each side for armhole inside A.2 and A.3 - read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease as follows in S, M, L and XL: Every 4th row (i.e. every other row from right side) 2-5-6-9 times in total in each side and in XXL and XXXL: Every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 13-18 times in total in each side = 75-77-79-81-83-85 stitches.
When piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm (decreases for armholes are now done), cast off the middle 35-35-37-37-39-39 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off for neck at beginning of every row from neck as follows: Cast off 1 stitch 2 times = 18-19-19-20-20-21 stitches remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm and cast off by knitting from right side. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 79-87-91-99-109-121 stitches. Continue as follows, i.e. work first row from wrong side: Work A.3 (= 7 stitches - NOTE: Begin on 2nd row in diagram and read diagram from left to right), work 20-24-26-28-33-39 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 25-25-25-29-29-29 stitches), 20-24-26-28-33-39 stitches in stocking stitch and finish with A.2 (= 7 stitches – NB: Begin on 2nd row in diagram and read diagram from left to right). Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side decrease 1 stitch in each side for armhole inside A.2 and A.3 - read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease as follows in S, M, L and XL: Every 4th row 2-5-6-9 times in total in each side and in XXL and XXXL: Every other row 13-18 times in total in each side = 75-77-79-81-83-85 stitches.
When piece measures 50-52-54-56-56-58 cm, slip the middle 25-25-23-23-23-23 stitches on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off for neck at beginning of every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 2-2-3-3-3-3 times and 1 stitch 3-3-3-3-4-4 times = 18-19-19-20-20-21 stitches remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm and cast off by knitting from right side. Work the other shoulder the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside cast-off edge in each side.

NECK EDGE: 
Pick up approx. 96 to 114 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holder at front) on a short circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges in the round and cast off by knitting.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND:
Worked back and forth on needle to desired length and sew together mid back.
Cast on 21 stitches on needle size 3 mm with Belle. Knit 1 row (= wrong side). Work next row as follows from right side: Work A.2 (= 7 stitches), A.4 (= 7 stitches) and A.3 (= 7 stitches). Continue pattern back and forth like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 48 cm (or desired length – subtract approx. 6-8 cm from head circumference), knit 1 row from wrong side. Cast off knitting from right side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew seam mid back inside cast-off edge.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs on needle, on next row knit one yarn over and knit the other yarn over twisted (= 1 stitch increased)
= knit 2 stitches in 1 stitch by knitting 1 stitch in front and back loop of same stitch (= 1 stitch increased)
= cast off 1 stitch
= stitch is already on right needle after casting off stitches, i.e. skip this and move to next square in diagram
= knit yarn over twisted both when symbol is worked from right and wrong side
= knit 2 twisted together both when symbol is worked from right and wrong side
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together
