Lower back

Using the larger needles, cast on 79(85)91(97)103 sts and begin the k1, p1 ribbing on the WS with p1(k1)p1(k1)k1. Work for 6 cm. Then switch to stockinette st.

When the piece measures 39(40)40(41)41 cm, decrease 1 st at both ends next to the outermost sts. Repeat the decreases every 10 cm 3 more times = 71(77)83(89)95 sts.

When the piece measures 83(84)85(87)88 cm, bind off 1x3(4)5(5)6 sts, 0(0)0(1)1x3 sts, and 1x2 sts at both ends on every other row for the armholes = 61(65)69(69)73 sts. Leave the sts on hold on e.g. a piece of yarn.

Left front

Using the smaller needles, cast on 43(46)49(52)55 sts and begin the k1, p1 ribbing on the WS with k1. Work 36(39)42(45)48 sts from the right end in ribbing and the 7 sts at the front edge (left end) in moss st.

When the ribbing measures 6 cm, switch to the larger needles. Work 34(37)40(43)46 sts in stockinette st, 2 sts in ribbing (p1, k1), and the 7 sts at the front edge in moss st.

When the piece measures 39(40)40(41)41 cm, decrease 1 st at the right end next to the outermost st. Repeat the decrease every 10 cm 3 more times = 39(42)45(48)51 sts.

When the piece measures 83(84)85(87)88 cm, bind off on every other row 1x3(4)5(5)6 sts, 0(0)0(1)1x3 sts, and 1x2 sts at the right end for the armhole = 34(36)38(38)40 sts.

Leave the sts on hold on e.g. a piece of yarn.

Place markers for buttons at the front edge. The topmost button will be 4(3)2(2)1 cm from the top edge and the other 5 below it at 9 cm intervals. There will be another 3 buttons on the yoke and neckline edge.

Right front

Work as the mirror image of the left front. Work buttonholes at the spots you marked. Buttonhole: work 4 sts from the front edge, yarn over, knit or purl 2 sts together following the moss st pattern, work to end.

When the piece measures 11(11)12(13)13 cm, increase 1 st at both ends next to the outermost st by knitting the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop. Repeat the increases every 5(4,5)4(3,5)3 cm 6(7)8(9)11 more times = 49(53)55(59)63 sts.

When the piece measures 46(47)48(48)49 cm, on every other row bind off 1x3(4)4(4)5 sts and 1(1)1(2)2x2 sts at both ends = 39(41)43(43)45 sts. Leave the sts on hold on e.g. a piece of yarn.
