STITCH WORKED TWISTED:
Work in back loop of st instead of front.
Inc 1 st before and after st with marker by making 1 YO. On next row work YO twisted to avoid holes.
DECREASE TIP 1 (applies to front and back piece):
Dec from RS 1 st after and before 1 edge st in each side as follows:
After 1 edge st: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Before 1 edge st: K 2 tog.
Dec from WS 1 st after and before 1 edge st in each side as follows:
After 1 edge st: P 2 twisted tog.
Before 1 edge st: P 2 tog.
DECREASE TIP 2 (applies to sleeve):
Dec 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, (marker), K tog the next 2 sts.
PATTERN ON YOKE:
See diagrams M.1 - M.3. Firstly work diagrams M.1, M.2, and M.3 1 time vertically, then diagram M.2 0-0-0 (1-1) time = 25-25-25 (30-30) rows in total.
PATTERN ON BODY/SLEEVE:
See diagrams M.4 and M.5. First work diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 1 time vertically.
The piece is first worked back and forth and then in the round. Worked top down from the neck.
Cast on 49-57-65 (73-81) sts on circular needle size 2 mm/US 0 with brown. Work rib back and forth (1st row = RS) as follows: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*, K last st on row. When rib measures approx. 1 cm / 3/8'', K next row from WS - While at the same time inc 7-9-11 (13-15) sts evenly on row = 56-66-76 (86-96) sts. On next row (= RS) switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 and work as follows: K 1 (= mid back), K 7-9-12 (14-16) (= right back piece), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 8-9-8 (9-10) (= right sleeve), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 20-24-30 (34-38) (= front piece), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 8-9-8 (9-10) (= left sleeve), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 7-9-12 (14-16) (= left back piece), K 1 (= mid back) = 4 sts with markers in total before increase for raglan.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE. READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue in stockinette st - While at the same time inc on next row from RS 1 st on each side of every st with marker = 8 new sts per inc. Repeat inc from RS on every other row a total of 12-12-12 (13-15) times, then on every 4th row a total of 2-3-4 (4-4) times. At the same time when piece measures 3-4-5 (5-6) cm / 1 1/8''-1½''-2'' (2''-2 3/8'') from cast on edge, work PATTERN ON YOKE - Read explanation above. NOTE: Work the new sts gradually into the pattern.
When piece measures 8-9-9 (10-10) cm / 3 1/8"-3½"-3½" (4"-4") from cast on edge, cast on 4 sts at the end of next row from WS (= sts at the bottom of neck opening, worked into the pattern) - Now work the piece in the round on circular needle from here.
When PATTERN ON YOKE has been worked (all inc are now done), there are 172-190-208 (226-252) sts on needle. Front piece = back piece = 48-54-62 (68-76) sts. Slip sts on sleeves and sts with markers (38-41-42 (45-50) sts for each sleeve) on a stitch holder. Now divide the piece, front/back piece and sleeves are finished separately.
Front piece + back piece = 96-108-124 (136-152) sts. Continue in the round on circular needle (round beg in the side). On the next round, work 1st round in diagram M.4 as follows: Cast on 4 sts for armhole, work 48-54-62 (68-76) sts (= front piece), cast on 8 sts for armhole, work 48-54-62 (68-76) sts (= back piece), cast on 4 sts for armhole = a total of 112-124-140 (152-168) sts on needle. On next round (= 2nd round in diagram M.4), inc 0-4-4 (8-8) sts evenly = 112-128-144 (160-176) sts. Continue with diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 1 time vertically.
Then work in stockinette st with brown until piece measures 15-17-19 (21-23) cm / 6"-6 3/4"-7½" (8 1/4"-9") from armhole (piece measures approx. 26-29-32 (35-38) cm / 10 1/4"-11 3/8"-12½" (13 3/4"-15") in total).
Now divide the piece and front and back piece are finished separately.
= 56-64-72 (80-88) sts. Work back and forth (1st row = RS) in stockinette st and dec for leg opening as follows: K 1 (= edge st), dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, work until 3 sts remain, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, K 1 (= edge st). Continue in stockinette st, repeat dec on every row from RS (= on every other row) inside 1 edge st in each side a total of 20-23-27 (30-34) times = 16-18-18 (20-20) sts remain. Then switch to circular needle size 2 mm/US 0 and work rib (K 1/P 1) for 1½ cm / ½'', loosely bind off all sts.
= 56-64-72 (80-88) sts. Work back and forth (1st row = RS) in stockinette st and dec for leg opening as follows: K 1, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, work until 3 sts remain, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, K 1.
Continue in stockinette st and repeat dec on every row inside 1 edge st in each side a total of 6-6-8 (8-10) times, then on every row from RS (= on every other row) a total of 14-17-19 (22-24) times = 16-18-18 (20-20) sts remain.
Then switch to circular needle size 2 mm/US 0 and work rib (K 1/P 1). On next row from RS, bind off for 3 button holes as follows: Work 1 st, * 1 YO, K the next 2 sts tog, work 4-5-5 (6-6) sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 YO, K the next 2 sts tog, work the last st. On next row work the YOs twisted. When rib measures approx. 1½ cm / ½'', loosely bind off all sts.
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down. Slip sts from stitch holder on to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 = 38-41-42 (45-50) sts, and cast on 8 sts mid under sleeve = 46-49-50 (53-58) sts. Insert a marker before 1st st on round and move the marker upwards (round beg mid under sleeve).
Continue with diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 (beg with 1st st in the repetition on 1st round in diagram M.4). When sleeve measures 2-3-3 (3-3) cm / 3/4"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" (1 1/8"-1 1/8"), dec 1 st before and after marker - Read DECREASE TIP 2 above.
Repeat dec every 1½-1½-2 (2½-2½) cm / ½"-½"-3/4" (7/8"-7/8") a total of 7-7-7 (6-8) times = 32-35-36 (41-42) sts. Continue until sleeve measures 12-15-18 (20-23) cm / 4 3/4"-6"-7" (8"-9") from armhole. On next round, dec 0-1-0 (1-0) sts = 32-34-36 (40-42) sts.
Then switch to double pointed needles size 2 mm/US 0 and continue in rib (K 1/P 1) for 3-3-3 (4-4) cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8'' (1½''-1½'') . Loosely bind off all sts.
Pick up approx. 21 - 25 sts from RS along the opening on right back piece with brown on double pointed needles size 2 mm/US 0. Work rib (K 1/P 1) back and forth for approx. 1½ cm / ½'' (= right band, 1st row = WS). Loosely bind off all sts.
Repeat along the opening on left back piece, but on 2nd row (= RS) bind off for 3 button holes (1 button hole = 1 YO, K 2 tog) evenly on band.
When rib measures approx. 1½ cm / ½'', loosely bind off all sts.
Place band with button holes on top of the other at the bottom of neck opening and sew through both layers with neat stitches.
Pick up from RS approx. 16 sts per 5 cm / 2'' along one leg opening, pick up inside 1 edge st with brown on circular needle size 2 mm/US 0, no of sts must be divisible by 2 + 1. On next row (= WS) work as follows: * P 1, K 1 *, finish with P 1.
Continue in rib for 1 cm / 3/8'', loosely bind off all sts. Repeat on the other leg opening.
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew buttons on to rib at the bottom of back piece, and on to right band in neck opening.
