Stitch patterns
- Ribbing: *k2, p2*, repeat *-* to end. On the wrong side rows, knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts.
- Stockinette stitch: knit the right side rows and purl the wrong side rows.
- Double seed stitch and cable pattern: follow the chart and instructions.
- Ribbing in the round: *k2, p2*

Back

Using the smaller needles cast on 112(120)128(136)140 sts and begin ribbing: (WS) p3, k2, *p2, k2*, repeat *-*, p3. Work ribbing for 9 cm, then purl WS row, evenly decreasing 2(0)0(2)0 sts = 110(120)128(134)140 sts.

Switch to the larger needles. Following row 1 of the chart work double seed st at both ends and begin the cable pattern in the middle: work 1(0)0(1)0 st at the right end, repeat section A 12(14)15(16)17 times [= 24(28)30(32)34 sts], work section B (= 8 sts), repeat section C 11(12)13(13)14 times [= 44(48)52(52)56 sts], work section D (= 8 sts), repeat section E 12(14)15(16)17 times [= 24(28)30(32)34 sts], work 1(0)0(1)0 st at the left end.

Work row 2 of the chart. On row 3 begin widening the cable section as follows: (RS) work to last 2 sts before section B, skp or ssp as needed to maintain double seed st pattern (skp = slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass slipped st over; ssp = slip 2 sts knitwise one at a time from left-hand needle to right-hand needle, move both sts back to left-hand needle and purl them together through the back loop), work section B (= 8 sts), increase 1 st (= knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop), repeat section C 11(12)13(13)14 times [= 44(48)52(52)56 sts], increase 1 st, word section D (= 8 sts), k2tog or p2tog as needed, work double seed st to end of row.

Work rows 4-8 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1-8. At the same time repeat the double seed st decreases and the increases at section C on every 4th row 17 more times. Work the increased sts following the cable pattern.

After you have completed the decreases and increases there are still 110(120)128(134)140 sts on the needles: 7(10)12(15)16 sts in the double seed st sections, 8 sts in sections B and D, and 80(84)88(88)92 sts in section C.

When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)48 cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(8)8(10)11 sts, 0(0)0(1)1x3 sts and 1(1)2(1)1x2 sts at both ends for the armholes = 96(100)104(104)108 sts. Both double seed st sections have now been bound off.

Keep working the cable pattern and begin raglan decreases: (RS) work 8 sts, k2tog, work to last 10 sts, skp, work 8 sts. Repeat the decreases on every other row 24(26)24(27)29 more times.

Keep decreasing as follows: (RS) work 8 sts, k3tog, work to last 11 sts, k3tog through back loop, work 8 sts. Repeat the decreases on every other row 1(1)3(1)1 more time(s). Bind off the remaining 38(38)38(40)40 sts.

Front

Work like back but work ribbing at the hem for 4,5 cm only. Work the cable pattern as established until you have completed the raglan decreases at both ends 21(23)25(24)26 times and there are 54(54)54(56)56 sts on the needles.

Keep working the raglan decreases as established. On the next RS row leave the middle 30(30)30(32)32 sts on hold for the neckline. Work one shoulder at a time. Continue decreasing as established, and at the same time on every other row bind off 1x3 sts and 2x2 sts at the neckline edge.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

Left sleeve

Using the smaller needles cast on 48(50)50(52)52 sts. Work ribbing for 6 cm, then purl WS row.

Switch to the larger needles and begin working double seed st following row 1 of the chart. Keep repeating section A (= 2 sts). Work rows 2-4 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1-4.

When the piece measures 11(7)9(7)12 cm, increase 1 st at both ends. Repeat the increases every 3(3)2,5(2,5)2,5 cm 11(13)15(16)18 more times = 72(78)82(86)90 sts. Work the increased sts in double seed st.

When the piece measures 47(48)49(49)50 cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(8)8(9)10 sts and 1(1)2(2)2x2 sts at both ends.

Begin raglan decreases: (RS) p1, p2tog, work to last 3 sts, p2tog through back loop, p1. Repeat the decreases at the right end 14(12)12(13)13 times on every other row and 6(8)8(8)9 times on every 4th row and at the same time at the left end 17(15)15(16)16 times on every other row and 3(5)5(5)6 times on every 4th row.

Note: After completing the decreases at the left end, on every other row bind off 1x6 sts and 2x5 sts at the left end.

Right sleeve

Mirror left sleeve.

Finishing

Pin to measurements wrong side up, mist and allow to dry.

Sew the raglan seams. Sew the side seams and sleeve seams.

Collar: move the held sts onto the 4 mm circular needle and pick up additional sts from the neckline edge for 120(120)124(124)124sts in total. Work ribbing in the round. When the collar measures 10 cm, switch to the 5 mm circular needle and work ribbing for another 10 cm. Bind off in pattern.
