EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

STRIPES:
3 stripes are worked on the whole garment; all measurements are taken from after the rib in the neck.
STRIPE 1: Work with vanilla for 15-16-16-17-18-18 cm = 6”-6 1/4”-6 1/4”-6 3/4”-7”-7”.
STRIPE 2: Work with off white - this stripe has different lengths on body and sleeves. Stripe measures 15-16-16-18-18 cm = 6”-6 1/4”-6 1/4”-7”-7” on body and 24-24-24-24-23-23 cm = 9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9”-9” on sleeves.
STRIPE 3: Work with powder pink to finished length on both body and sleeves.

DECREASE TIP-1:
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, (marker thread sits here), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for sleeves):
NOTE: So that the decreases are alternately on right and left side of the piece, decrease as follows:
In sizes S, M and L decrease alternately at beginning and end of the decrease row.
In sizes XL, XXL and XXXL decrease at beginning of each decrease row (alternately from right and wrong side).
Decrease as follows from the right side: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows from the wrong side: Purl 2 together.

MAGIC LOOP:
If the circular needle you are working with is too long and you do not have double pointed needles, you can use the circular needle as follows:
The circular needle must be long with a flexible wire. Push the stitches to the middle of the wire. Divide the stitches in the middle and pull the wire out through the stitches. Push the stitches to the end of the needles on each side; make sure the stitches do not twist. The strand you are working with is on the back needle and you begin working on the front needle. Pull the back needle out to work the stitches on the front needle. When the stitches on the front needle have been worked, turn and push the stitches back onto the empty needle and work the other side in the same way. Continue in the round like this; make sure you always pull out the needle on the side with the strand.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of each marker thread (= 8 stitches increased on round).
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP (for body):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round, knit the yarn over to avoid a hole.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The whole piece is worked with 3 strands and wide stripes. Work in the round with double pointed needles, then with circular needle and MAGIC LOOP until there are enough stitches to use circular needle length 60 or 80 cm = 24” or 32” normally. You work top down. Sleeves are worked back and forth with circular needle.

YOKE:
Cast on 40-40-44-44-48-52 stitches with double pointed needles size 12 mm = US 17 and 3 strands vanilla. Work rib with knit 2, purl 2 for 7 cm = 2 3/4”. The piece is now measured from here and you begin working STRIPES – read description above. Insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches as follows: First marker thread at beginning of round, second after 14-14-16-16-18-20 stitches (= back piece), third marker thread after 6 new stitches (= sleeve) and fourth after 14-14-16-16-18-20 new stitches (= front piece). there are now 6 stitches left until the first marker thread (= sleeve). Knit 1 round where you decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 32-32-36-36-40-44 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 15 mm = US 19, NOTE: In our range we do not have shorter circular needles than 60 cm = 24” in size 15 mm = US 19. You have now decreased stitches so that the circumference is less than 60 cm = 24” in sizes S - XXL. Work using MAGIC LOOP – see description above, until you have enough stitches to use the circular needle normally.
Work stockinette stitch and on the second round start to increase to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 8-10-10-11-12-14 times = 96-112-116-124-136-156 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Raglan-increase in sizes M, L, XXL and XXXL are now finished. In sizes S and XL work 1 more round where you increase 1 stitch on front and back pieces in the same way (do not increase on sleeves) = 4 stitches increased.
There are now 100-112-116-128-136-156 stitches on the round. The piece measures approx. 21-25-25-29-30-35 cm = 8 1/4”-9 3/4”-9 3/4”-11 3/8”-11 3/4”-13 3/4”- from after the rib. Continue working without increasing stitches for 3-0-2-1-0-0 more rounds. The piece measures approx. 25-25-28-30-30-35 cm = 9 3/4”-9 3/4”-11”-11 3/4”-11 3/4”-13 3/4” from after the rib.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 30-32-34-38-40-46 stitches (= back piece), place the next 20-24-24-26-28-32 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-4-6-6 stitches under sleeve, work 30-32-34-38-40-46 stitches (= front piece), place the next 20-24-24-26-28-32 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-4-6-6 stitches under sleeve. Insert 1 marker. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 68-72-76-84-92-104 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch and stripes. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast on under the sleeves (= 2-2-2-2-3-3 new stitches on each side of the marker thread) and 34-36-38-42-46-52 stitches between marker threads on front and back pieces.
Now increase in the sides as follows – read INCREASE TIP:
When the piece measures 5 cm = 2” increase 1 stitch before each marker thread.
When the piece measures 8 cm = 3 1/8” increase 1 stitch after each marker thread.
When the piece measures 10 cm = 4” increase 1 stitch before each marker thread.
When the piece measures 12 cm = 4 3/4” increase 1 stitch after each marker thread.
There are now 76-80-84-92-100-112 stitches on the round.
Now continue in the different sizes as follows:

Sizes S, L, XL and XXL:
Continue working in the round with stockinette stitch until the piece measures 17-18-18-20 cm = 6 3/4”-7”-7”-8”.

Sizes M and XXXL:
Continue working in the round with stockinette stitch until the piece measures 19-17 cm = 7 1/2”-6 3/4” and increase at the same time as follows:
When the piece measures 14 cm = 5 1/2” increase 1 stitch before each marker thread.
When the piece measures 16 cm = 6 1/4” increase 1 stitch after each marker thread.

ALL SIZES:
There are now 76-84-84-92-100-116 stitches on the round. When the piece measures 17-19-18-18-20-17 cm = 6 3/4”-7 1/2”-7”-7”-8”-6 3/4” place the 38-42-42-46-50-58 stitches on the back piece on a thread. Then work rib, back and forth over the 38-42-42-46-50-58 stitches on the front piece as follows: Change to circular needle size 12 mm = US 17 and work from the right side: 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see description above, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 4 stitches left on row, knit 2 and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch.
Continue this rib for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. The piece measures a total of approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm = 20 1/2"-21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8" from the shoulder down. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Place the stitches from the thread (back piece) on circular needle size 12 mm = US 17 and work rib back and forth in the same way as the front piece until the rib measures 12 cm = 4 3/4”. The split on the front piece is 6 cm = 2 3/8” long and on the back piece 12 cm = 4 3/4” long. The piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm = 22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4"-26"-26 3/4" from the shoulder down at the back.

SLEEVE:
The sleeves are worked back and forth with circular needle and sewn together to finish. Place the 20-24-24-26-28-32 stitches from the thread on circular needle size 15 mm = US 19 and cast on 2-2-2-2-3-3 new stitches on each side = 24-28-28-30-34-38 stitches. Work stockinette stitch back and forth over all stitches. When the piece measures 4-4-2-4-4-2 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-3/4”-1 1/2”-1 1/2”-3/4” decrease 1 stitch on the right side of the piece – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease alternately on right and left side every 2nd-2nd-2nd-1st-1st-1st row a total of 8-12-12-14-14-18 times (= 4-6-6-7-7-9 times on each side) = 16-16-16-16-20-20 stitches. When the piece measures 33-34-31-30-29-24 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders and longer sleeve cap), change to circular needle size 12 mm = US 17 and work rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve seams in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is flat. Sew openings under sleeves.
