Body

The front and back are knitted in one piece up to the armholes.

Using the smaller 80 cm circular needle and the Graphite yarn, cast on 188(204)216(236) sts. Work ribbing in the round for 6 cm. Switch to the larger needle. Knit 1 round, evenly increasing 4(6)6(4) sts = 192(210)222(240) sts.

Begin the colourwork pattern on row 1 of chart I. Work the 6 st pattern 32(35)37(40) times. Work rows 2-12 of the chart. Then work stockinette st using Graphite.

When the piece measures 41(42)44(46) cm, work 90(98)103(112) sts in the back, bind off 12(14)16(16) sts for the armhole, work 84(91)95(104) sts in the front, bind off the last 6(7)8(8) sts and the first 6(7)8(8) sts on the next round for the other armhole. 84(91)95(104) sts on the back and front pieces. Leave the sts on hold.

Sleeves

Using the smaller double-pointed needles and Graphite, cast on 48(48)52(52) sts and divide them to four needles. Work ribbing in the round for 6 cm. Switch to the larger needles. Knit 1 round, evenly increasing 6(6)8(8) sts = 54(54)60(60) sts.

Begin the colourwork pattern on row 1 of chart I. Work the 6 st pattern repeat 9(9)10(10) times. Work rows 2-12 of the chart. Then work stockinette st using Graphite.

Note: When the piece measures 8(9)13(8) cm, increase 1 st at both ends. Repeat the increases every 3,5(3)3(3) cm 10(12)11(13) more times = 76(80)84(88) sts.

When the piece measures 47(48)49(50) cm, bind off 6(7)8(8) sts at both ends. Leave the remaining 64(66)68(72) sts on hold.

Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.
