The back

Using the smaller needles, cast on 92(100)108(116)122(130) sts and work ribbing for 3 cm. Switch to the larger needles and work in stockinette st.

When the piece measures 29(29)30(30)31(31) cm, decrease 1 st at both ends. Repeat the decreases every 10 cm for 2 more times = 86(94)102(110)116(124) sts.

When the piece measures 66(67)68(69)71(72) cm, on every 2nd row bind off at both ends 1x4(5)5(6)6(6) sts and 3(4)3(4)4(4)x1 st for the armhole = 72(76)86(90)96(104) sts.

On the next RS row, begin the lace pattern from row 1 of chart. The starting point for each size is marked with an arrow. Keep repeating the 26 st pattern repeat as needed. Work rows 2-12 of chart and then keep repeating rows 1-12.

When the armhole measures 17(18)19(20)20(21) cm, bind off the middle 22(22)24(24)26(26) sts for the neckline. Work one side of the neckline at a time. On every 2nd row, bind off 1x2 sts and 1x1 st at the neckline edge.

When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off the remaining 22(24)28(30)32(36) shoulder sts.

Knit the other side of the neckline to match.

The front

Work as you did the back, but leave the middle 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on hold for the neckline when the armhole measures 9(10)11(12)12(13) cm. Work one side of the neckline at a time. On every 2nd row, bind off 1x3 sts, 1x2 sts and 2x1 st at the neckline edge.

When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off the remaining 22(24)28(30)32(36) shoulder sts.

Knit the other side of the neckline to match.

Sleeves

Using the smaller needles, cast on 44(46)46(48)48(50) sts and work ribbing for 3 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the lace pattern from row 1 of chart. The midpoint of the sleeve is marked with an arrow at the bottom of the chart. Use that to determine the starting point for the pattern. Work rows 2-12 of chart and then keep repeating rows 1-12. Make sure the decreases and increases on the lace pattern match so that number of stitches remains correct at all times.

When the piece measures 14(12)14(13)13(14) cm, increase 1 st at both ends. Repeat the increases every 3(3)2,5(2,5)2,5(2,5) cm for 10(11)13(14)14(15) more times = 66(70)74(78)78(82) sts. Work the lace pattern with the increased sts as well.

When the piece measures 47(48)49(50)50(51) cm, bind off at both ends 1x4(5)5(6)6(6) sts and 4(5)5(6)6(6)x1 st on every 2nd row. Bind off the remaining sts.

Knit the other sleeve to match.

Finishing

Lay the pieces to measurements, mist on the wrong side and allow to dry.

Sew the shoulder seams.

Neckline edge: Using the circular needle, pick up the sts on hold. Pick up additional sts from the neckline edge so that there are 96(98)100(102)104 sts in total. Begin picking up the sts from one of the shoulders. Work 3 cm of ribbing in the round and bind off in pattern.

Attach the sleeves at the armholes following the red markers on the patern. Sew the sleeve seams and side seams.
