Techniques

Increase: Knit the right loop of the stitch below the next stitch, then proceed as instructed without dropping the stitch off the needle.

Collar

Using the 8 mm circular needle, loosely cast on 38(38)40(40)42 sts and join for working in the round. Place marker for beginning of round and begin 1x1 ribbing. Slip the marker when you come to it. Choose your preferred type of collar:

Low collar: Work ribbing for 5 rounds.

High collar: Work ribbing for 8(8)8(10)10 rounds.

Yoke

Switch to the shorter 10 mm circular needle. Knit 3 rounds; on the second round, evenly increase 2(4)4(6)6 sts = 40(42)44(46)48 sts (see Techniques).

Work stockinette st and keep increasing as follows (switch to the longer circular needle when you need to):

Next round: *increase 1, work 2 sts*, repeat *–* to end of round = 60(63)66(69)72 sts.

Knit 4(5)5(6)6 rounds.

Next round: *increase 1, work 3 sts*, repeat *–* to end of round = 80(84)88(92)96 sts.

Knit 5(5)6(6)7 rounds.

Next round: *increase 1, work 4 sts*, repeat *–* to end of round. Note: For sizes 120 and 140, make an additional increase at the end of round. 100(106)110(116)120 sts on the needles.

Knit 3(3)3(4)4 rounds.

On the next round, place markers on both sides of the sleeve sts: k15(16)16(17)18, place marker (= back of right sleeve), k21(22)23(24)24, place marker (= front of right sleeve), k29(31)32(34)36, place marker (= front of left sleeve), k21(22)23(24)24, place marker (= back of left sleeve), k14(15)16(17)18.

The beginning of round is at the back midpoint.

The back neckline is now shaped with short rows. You can also omit these: knit 1 more round instead, then go to Body.

Short rows:

Row 1: Knit to marker (front of right sleeve), turn work. Slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front and tighten the yarn in the back so the loops of the slipped st come over the needle = double stitch. Purl to beginning of round.

Row 2: Purl to marker (front of left sleeve), turn work. Make a double stitch. Knit to beginning of round.

Row 3: Knit to marker (back of right sleeve), turn work. Make a double stitch. Purl to beginning of round.

Row 4: Purl to marker (back of left sleeve), turn work. Make a double stitch. Knit to beginning of round.

Knit 1 round with all sts. Knit the loops of each double st together to maintain the number of sts.

Body

Separate the sleeves: work 15(16)16(17)18 back sts, leave 21(22)23(24)24 sleeve sts on hold, cast on 2(2)3(4)4 sts at the underarm, work 29(31)32(34)36 front sts, leave 21(22)23(24)24 sleeve sts on hold, cast on 2(2)3(4)4 sts at the underarm, work 14(15)16(17)18 back sts = 62(66)70(76)80 sts

Remove the beginning of round marker. Knit to midpoint of right armhole cast-on and place marker for beginning of round. If you have an odd number of sts in the underarm, place the marker next to the midpoint.

Work stockinette st until the piece measures 21(22)24(26)28 cm from the armhole (or desired length). Work ribbing for 5(5)5(7)7 rounds and bind off in pattern. Note: Use the 8 mm needles if you prefer a tighter ribbing in the hem.

Sleeves

Place the 21(22)23(24)24 sleeve sts onto the larger double-pointed needles. Pick up and knit 1 st from between the sleeve sts and the underarm cast-on, 2(2)3(4)4 sts from the cast-on, and 1 st from between the cast-on and the sleeve sts = 25(26)28(30)30 sts.

Work stockinette st in the round; on the next round, decrease the extra sts you picked up on both sides of the cast-on by k2tog = 23(24)26(28)28 sts.

Place marker at the midpoint of the underarm and work stockinette st. When the sleeve measures 7(6)7(5)7 cm, k2tog at the beginning of the next round and work to end. Repeat the decrease every 7(6)7(5)7 cm 2(3)3(5)3 more times. Note: Decrease alternately at the beginning and end of round. 20(20)22(22)24 sts on the needles after the decreases.

When the sleeve measures 25(27)30(32)35 cm from the underarm (or desired length), switch to the 8 mm double-pointed needles and work 5(5)5(7)7 rounds in 1x1 ribbing. Bind off in pattern.

Finishing

Weave in ends. Carefully steam the garment and allow to dry flat.
