Back

Using the smaller needles, cast on 74(78)86(90)94 sts and begin the ribbing on the WS with p2. When you have worked for approx. 6,5 cm, cast on 1 st (for seaming) at the beginning and end of the next RS row. At the same time evenly decrease 6 sts (p2tog at purl sts). 70(74)82(86)90 sts on the needles.

Switch to the larger needles. Begin the textured pattern on the WS on row 1 of the chart: work the 1 st at the left edge, keep repeating the 2 st pattern, work the 1 st at right. Work rows 2–4 of the chart and then keep repeating rows 1–4.

When the piece measures 35(36)37(38)39 cm, at both ends bind off 2(2)2(3)3x2 sts on every other row for the armholes = 62(66)74(74)78 sts.

When the armhole measures 17(18)19(20)21 cm, bind off the middle 18(18)18(20)20 sts. Work one side of the neckline at a time. After 2 rows, bind off 1x2 sts at the neckline edge.  

When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)23 cm, bind off the remaining 20(22)26(25)27 shoulder sts.

Work the other side of the neckline in the same manner.

When the piece measures 33(34)35(36)37 cm, at both ends bind off 2(2)2(3)3x2 sts on every other row for the armholes = 62(66)74(74)78 sts.

When the armhole measures 12(13)14(15)16 cm, leave the middle 12(12)12(14)14 sts on hold for the neckline. Work one side of the neckline at a time. On every other row bind off 1x2 sts and 3x1 st at the neckline edge.

Sleeves

Using the smaller needles, cast on 40(42)42(44)46 sts and begin the ribbing on the WS with p2.

Note: When the piece measures 12(13)12(12)10 cm, increase 1 st at both ends. Repeat the increases every 3,5(3,5)3(3)3 cm 7(7)9(9)10 more times = 48(50)54(56)60 sts. Work the increased sts following the textured pattern.

When the piece measures 40(41)42(42)43 cm, bind off 1x2 sts at both ends. Then decrease 2(2)2(3)3x1 st at both ends. Bind off the remaining sts.
