Stitch patterns Ribbing in the round: *p1, k1*, repeat *–*. Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all rows. Textured pattern in the round: Round 1: knit all sts. Round 2: *p1, k1*, repeat *–*. Keep repeating rounds 1–2. Stockinette stitch (flat): knit the right side rows and purl the wrong side rows. Gauge 14 sts and 21 rows in stockinette st with larger needles = 10 cm / 4 in

Note The sweater is knitted seamlessly in the round from neckline to hem.

Using the smaller 40 cm circular needle cast on 72(72)76(76)80(80) sts, place marker for beginning of round and begin ribbing in the round with p1.

When the collar measures 10 cm, switch to the larger needles and on the next round place raglan markers as follows: work 9 sts in ribbing, place marker, k1 (right sleeve), place marker, work 9 sts in ribbing, place marker, k17(17)19(19)21(21) (front), place marker, work 9 sts in ribbing, place marker, k1 (left sleeve), place marker, work 9 sts in ribbing, place marker, k17(17)19(19)21(21) (back), place marker. From now on work the rib sts following the textured pattern. Keep repeating rounds 1–2.

On the next round begin raglan increases:

Round 1 (increase round): *knit to marker, slip marker, make 1 (= knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop), kfb (= knit front and back), slip marker, knit to marker, slip marker, kfb, knit to last 2 sts before marker, kfb, k1, slip marker*, repeat *–* once more. 8 sts increased, 80(80)84(84)88(88) sts on the needles: 9 sts between the pieces, 3 sts in each sleeve, 19(19)21(21)23(23) sts in front and back.

Round 2: *starting with p1 work ribbing to marker, slip marker, work stockinette st to marker*, repeat *–* 3 more times.

Round 3 (increase round): *knit to marker, slip marker, kfb, kfb, k1, slip marker, knit to marker, slip marker, kfb, knit to last 2 sts before marker, kfb, k1, slip marker*, repeat *–* once more. 8 sts increased, 88(88)92(92)96(96) sts on the needles: 9 sts between the pieces, 5 sts in each sleeve, 21(21)23(23)25(25) sts in front and back.

Keep working the raglan increases on both sleeves as follows: 9(12)15(16)20(20) more times on every other round, 4(3)2(2)0(0) times every 4th round and 0(0)0(0)0(2) times on every round. At the same time increase in the front and back pieces as follows: 15(18)18(17)16(15) times every other round, 1(0)0(0)0(0) times every 4th round, and 0(0)2(6)8(12) times on every round. At stockinette st sections increase as follows: kfb, knit to last 2 sts before marker, kfb, k1. Do not increase at the textured raglan section; continue as established.

When you have completed the increases work 1 round even. 204(220)240(256)272(292) sts now on the needles: 9 sts between the pieces, 31(35)39(41)45(49) sts in each sleeve, 53(57)63(69)73(79) sts front and back.

On the next round separate the sleeves: k5, leave 39(43)47(49)53(57) sleeve sts on hold, cast on 5 sts for an armhole, knit the remaining 5 raglan sts, slip marker, knit the front sts, slip marker, k5, leave 39(43)47(49)53(57) sts on hold, cast on 5 sts for the other armhole, knit the remaining 5 raglan sts, slip marker, knit the back sts. 136(144)156(168)176(188) sts on the needles: 53(57)63(69)73(79) sts front and back, 15 sts at the textured sections between the markers.

Begin short rows:

Row 1 (RS): starting with p1 work 6 sts in ribbing, turn work and yarn over.

Row 2 (WS): slip 1 and tighten the yarn so the loops of the slipped st and yo come over the needle (= double stitch), purl to marker, slip marker, purl the back sts, slip marker, starting with k1 work 6 sts in ribbing, turn and yarn over.

Row 3 (RS): double stitch, knit to marker, slip marker, knit the back sts, slip marker, work ribbing to double st, knit the legs of the double st together, p1, turn work and yarn over.

Row 4 (WS): double stitch, purl to marker, slip marker, purl the back sts, slip marker, work ribbing to double st, purl the legs of the double st together, k1, turn work and yarn over.

Row 5 (RS): double stitch, knit to marker, slip marker, knit the back sts, slip marker, work ribbing to double st, purl the legs of the double st together, k1, turn work and yarn over.

Row 6 (WS): double stitch, purl to marker, slip marker, purl the back sts, slip marker, work ribbing to double st, knit the legs of the double st together, p1, turn work and yarn over.

Repeat rows 3–6 once more.

On the next row: double stitch, knit to marker, slip marker, knit the back sts, slip marker.

Work ribbing to double st, knit the legs of the double st together, work ribbing to marker, slip marker, knit the front sts, slip marker, work ribbing to marker and knit together the legs of the last double st, slip marker, knit the back sts.

Now keep working the textured pattern between the markers and stockinette st in the front and back.

When the front measures 29(30)31(32)34(35) cm from the armhole (ie. the shortest length from underarm to hem), switch to the smaller needles and work ribbing in the round for 7 cm with all sts. Loosely bind off in pattern.

Sleeves

Use either the Magic Loop technique or double-pointed needles.

Place the 39(43)47(49)53(57) sts onto the larger needles and pick up 5 sts from the armhole cast-on and 1 st on both sides from between the cast-on edge and the sleeve sts = 46(50)54(56)60(64) sts. Distribute the sts evenly so that the beginning of round is between the stockinette st and textured sections.

Keep working 15 sts following the established textured pattern and the other 31(35)39(41)45(49) sts in stockinette st. When the sleeve measures 4(3)4(3)3(2) cm, decrease 1 st at both edges of the stockinette st section: at the beginning, skp; at the end, k2tog. Repeat the decreases every 5(4)3,5(3,5)3(3) cm 6(8)9(10)11(13) more times = 32(32)34(34)36(36) sts.

When the sleeve measures 38(39)40(41)41(42) cm from the armhole, switch to the smaller needles and work ribbing in the round for 7 cm. Loosely bind off in pattern.

Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.
