Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 230-246-262-282-302-326 sts (includes 5 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Lima.

Work next row as follows from RS:
5 band sts in garter st, work diagram A.3 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), 14-22-30-12-22-34 sts in stockinette st (marker in the side is in the mid of these sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.3 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), work 14-22-30-12-22-34 sts in stockinette st (marker in the side is in the mid of these sts) A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 42-42-42-56-56-56 sts), and finish with 5 band sts in garter st.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!

INC IN THE SIDES:
When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm / 2 3/8’’-2 3/8’’-2 3/8’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’, inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm / 3 1/8”-3 1/8”-3 1/8”-3½”-3½”-3½”, 2 more times (= 3 times in total) = 242-258-274-294-314-338 sts.

DEC AND INC IN PATTERN FRONT AND BACK:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm / 2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-3 1/8’’- 3 1/8’’- 3 1/8’’ – make sure that next row is with inc and dec in A.2/A.3 - dec 1 extra st in A.2 and A.3 on both front and back piece so that section with diagonal stripes becomes smaller.
Dec 1 st in A.2 by working the last 2 sts before dec the same way as dec, i.e. K 2 tog.
Dec 1 st in A.3 by working the next 2 sts after dec the same way as dec, i.e. slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 4 sts dec in total).
To avoid reducing no of sts, inc in addition on same row as dec in A.2/A.3. Inc 1 st outside A.1 towards stockinette st section in each side on both front and back piece - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc in total).
No of sts on body will thus not vary (excl inc in the sides).
Section in garter st mid front and mid back becomes smaller and stockinette st section in each side becomes bigger.
Repeat this dec and inc every 4-4-5-5-5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-2”-2”-2”-2”, 4 more times (= 5 dec in total in pattern in A.2/A.3 and 5 inc in stockinette st section).

ARMHOLES:
When piece measures 26-28-28-29-30-31 cm / 10Ό”-11”-11”-11 3/8”-11Ύ”-12Ό” (inc and dec should now be done), work next row as follows from WS:
Work 57-61-65-69-74-80 sts on left front piece (i.e. 5 band sts in garter st, A.2 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts, A.1 (= 6 sts) and 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st), bind off 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts for armhole, work 104-112-120-128-138-150 sts on back piece (i.e. 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts) A.2 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts, A.3 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts. A.1 (= 6 sts) and 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st), bind off 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts for armhole and work the last 57-61-65-69-74-80 sts on right front piece (i.e. 9-13-17-7-12-18 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.3 over the next 37-37-37-51-51-51 sts and 5 band sts in garter st).
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.
Cast on 44-46-46-48-50-52 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Lima.
K 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round (= 2 ridges in garter st).
Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve).
Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and work in stockinette st.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 15-14-12-11-10-9 cm / 6”-5½”-4Ύ”-4 3/8”-4”-3½”, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st each side of marker).
Repeat inc every other round 30-31-32-33-33-34 more times (= 31-32-33-34-34-35 inc) = 106-110-112-116-118-122 sts on needle.
On next round (after last inc - piece measures approx. 39-39-38-38-37-37 cm / 15 Ό”-15 Ό”-15”-15”-14½”-14½”), bind off the middle 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts under sleeve (i.e. bind off 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts on each side of marker) = 94-98-100-102-104-108 sts remain on needle.
Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off (without working them first) = 406-430-450-470-494-526 sts on needle.
Insert 1 marker in every transition between body and sleeves (= 4 markers) and move markers upwards when working.
Then work in stockinette st and pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME also working A.1 in every transition between body and sleeves (markers should be in the middle of A.1).

RAGLAN:
AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row after body and sleeves have been placed tog on to same circular needle (= RS), beg dec for raglan – READ DECREASE TIP (= 8 sts dec).
Repeat dec every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 30-30-32-34-35-36 more times (= 31-31-33-35-36-37 times in total) and then every row (both from RS and from WS) 8-10-9-8-8-9 times in total.

DEC AND INC IN PATTERN FRONT AND BACK:
AT THE SAME TIME when 2-3-4-0-1-2 cm / 3/4”-1 1/8”-1½”-0-3/8”-3/4” have been worked after body and sleeve were put on to same circular needle, dec 1 extra st in A.2/A.3 as before and inc 1 st outside A.1 towards stockinette st section in each side front and back as before = 4 sts dec and 4 sts inc on row.
Repeat this dec/inc every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) 33-33-33-39-39-39 times in total (these dec/inc are done in addition to raglan but does not affect no of sts).

ADJUSTING DIAGONAL LINES ON BACK PIECE:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 46-48-50-52-54-56 cm / 18’’-19’’-19Ύ’’-20½’’-21Ό’’-22’’ (measured along the shortest side on garment), dec and inc in A.2/A.3 on back piece every 8th row instead every 4th row (this only applies to the ordinary dec/inc in diagram (not the extra dec/inc every other row to make the middle section smaller).
When this is done, the diagonal lines mid back will even out and make the neck line at the back straight.
Repeat this dec/inc every 8th row 2 more times, then work pattern in A.2/A.3 without the ordinary inc and dec (continue dec to make the mid section smaller as before).

NECK EDGE:
After last dec for raglan there are 94-102-114-126-142-158 sts on needle and last buttonhole should be as close to neck edge as possible. Work 1 row pattern from WS as before. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-18-24-26-32-38 sts evenly (do not dec over band sts) = 80-84-90-100-110-120 sts. K 3 rows (1st row = WS) and then loosely bind off with K from RS.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew on buttons.
