START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

TOP - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle as far as the armholes. Then the front and back pieces are worked separately. The whole piece is worked with 2 strands Safran.

TOP:
Cast on 166-178-194-210-230-250 stitches (including 5 band stitches on each side towards mid back) with circular needle size 4.5 mm and 2 strands off white. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and insert a marker thread 44-47-51-55-60-65 stitches in from each side (= 78-84-92-100-110-120 stitches between marker threads for front piece). Then work stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side towards mid back. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 3-4-5-5-5-6 cm continue with STRIPES – read description above. Remember the BUTTONHOLES – read description above. When the piece measures 12 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read DECREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches decreased). Repeat this decrease every 10-10-10.-12-12-12 cm a total of 3 times = 154-166-182-198-218-238 stitches. When the piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm work 2 ridges over the middle 12-14-16-20-24-28 stitches on each side, i.e. 6-7-8-10-12-14 stitches on each side of both marker threads (= under sleeves); the remaining stitches are worked as before. On the next row from the right side after the ridges cast off the middle 6-8-10-14-18-22 stitches on both sides for the armholes and the front and back pieces are finished separately.

FRONT PIECE:
= 66-70-76-80-86-92 stitches. Now work pattern as follows: 3 stitches in garter stitch, 25-27-30-32-35-38 stitches in stocking stitch, 10 stitches in garter stitch, 25-27-30-32-35-38 stitches in stocking stitch, 3 stitches in garter stitch. AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side decrease 1 stitch for the armhole on each side – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 2nd row a total of 4-5-7-8-10-12 times, AT THE SAME TIME when you have worked 2 ridges over the middle 10 stitches on the row, cast off the middle 4 stitches for the neck on the next row and each shoulder is finished separately. Then decrease inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck - remember DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every row from the right side a total of 12-12-13-13-14-14 times. When all the decreases for neck and armhole are finished there are 15-16-16-17-17-18 stitches left on the shoulder. When the armhole measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm, cast off. The top measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

LEFT BACK PIECE: 
= 38-40-43-45-48-51 stitches. Continue back and forth with stripes and 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid back and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the armhole. AT THE SAME TIME decrease for the armhole in the same way as on the front piece and when you have worked 2 ridges from where you divided into front and back pieces, cast off the outermost 2 stitches on the band and decrease for the v-neck as follows: Decrease 1 stitch inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch every 2nd row a total of 17-17-18-18-19-19 times. When all the decreases for neck and armhole are finished there are 15-16-16-17-17-18 stitches left on shoulder. Continue until the armhole measures approx. 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm - adjust to match the front piece. Cast off. The whole top measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm.
