Back

Using the smaller needles cast on 102(110)118(124)132(138) sts and work ribbing for 6 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 11(15)19(22)26(29) sts in seed st, work section A (= 15 sts), section B (= 7 sts), section C 3 times (= 36 sts), section D (= 7 sts), section E (= 15 sts), work 11(15)19(22)26(29) sts in seed st. At sections A and E work rows 2–8 and then keep repeating rows 1–8. At sections B–D work rows 2–28, then keep repeating rows 1–28.

When the piece measures 38(39)40(42)43(44) cm, on every other row bind off 1x2(3)4(6)7(9) sts and 1(1)2(2)3(3)x2 sts at both ends for the armholes = 94(100)102(104)106(108) sts.

Begin raglan decreases. On every other row decrease 25(24)26(25)25(28)x1 sts at both ends: on a RS row p1, p2tog, work to last 3 sts, p2tog through back loop, p1. On every other row decrease 1(3)2(3)3(2)x2 sts at both ends: on a RS row p1, p3tog, work to last 4 sts, p3tog through back loop, p1.

After completing the raglan decreases bind off the remaining 40(40)42(42)44(44) sts.

 

Front

Work like back until you have decreased 19(20)21(21)21(21)23 sts at both ends and there are 56(60)60(62)64(62) sts on the needles. Continue decreasing as established, and on the next RS row leave the middle 34(38)38(40)42(40) sts on hold for the neckline. Work one shoulder at a time. Continue decreasing as established, and at the same time on every other row bind off 1x3 sts and 2x2 sts at the neckline edge.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

 

Left sleeve

Using the smaller needles cast on 50(52)54(54)56(56) sts and work ribbing for 6 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 6(7)8(8)9(9) sts in seed st, work section B (= 7 sts), section C 2 times (= 24 sts), section D (= 7 sts), work 6(7)8(8)9(9) sts in seed st. Work rows 2–8 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1–28.

When the piece measures 10(11)13(13)10(10) cm, increase 1 st at both ends. Repeat the increases every 4(4)3,5(3)3(2,5) cm 8(8)9(11)12(15) more times = 68(70)74(78)82(88) sts.

When the piece measures 46(47)48(49)49(50) cm, on every other row bind off 1x2(3)4(6)7(9) sts and 1x2 sts = 60(60)62(62)64(66) sts.

Begin raglan decreases. At the right end: on every other row decrease 18(17)17(15)16(16)x1 st and then 4(5)6(7)7(8)x1 st on every 4th row. At the same time at the left end decrease 21(19)20(18)19(19)x1 st on every other row and then 1(3)3(4)4(5)x1 st on every 4th row: on a RS row p1, p2tog, work to last 3 sts, p2tog through back loop, p1.

After completing the decreases at the left end, on every other row bind off 2x5(5)5(6)6(6) sts and 1x6 sts at the left end.

Finishing

Pin to measurements wrong side up, mist and allow to dry.

Sew the raglan seams. Sew the side seams and sleeve seams.

Collar: Move the sts you left on hold onto the 4 mm circular needle and pick up additional sts from the neckline edge for 124(126)126(128)128(130) sts in total. Work ribbing in the round for 8 cm, then switch to the 5 mm circular needle. Work ribbing in the round for 8 cm (collar now measures 16 cm), then switch to the 6 mm circular needle. Work ribbing until the collar measures 24 cm, then bind off in pattern.
