THE BODY
Cast on 168 s on circular needles US 3.
Place marker (PM) at the beginning of the round and after 84 s to mark the sides.
Knit a rib in the round, K1, P1 for about 1.3”.
Change to US needles 8 and continue in stockinette.
Cast off 4 stitches in each side when the piece is 8.6” (2 s on each side of the marker)= 160 s. Put the piece aside.

SLEEVES
Cast on 36 s on DP needles US 3.
Knit a rib in the round, K1, P1 for about 1.3”.
Change to US needles 8 and continue in stockinette.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the two stiches marking the beginning and the end of the round every 0.7”  9 times. Continue to increase in the same way every 1.9” 5 times = 14 increasements in total (= 64 s).
Cast off 4 stitches right under the sleeve when the piece is 17.7 “ = 60 s.
Knit another sleeve.

RAGLAN DECREASE
You will end up knit longer from here on out than you already have, as the raglan decrease go over a lot of rounds.

Place the sleeves on to the circular needles with the body piece. Make sure the cast off edges are facing eachother = 280 s in total.
PM in the transistions between sleeves and body piece, 4 in total.

Start knitting the front piece:
P2, K2tog
*Knit until you are 4 stitches away from the next marker, SSK, P4, K2tog*
Repeat from * to * until you are 4 stitches away from the last marker, SSK, P2.

Decrease like this on every 4th round. ALWAYS purl the 2 stitches on each side of all the markers (4 stitches in 4 different places)
AT THE SAME TIME decrease the sleeves every second round, twice as often as the body piece.
When reaching a marker marking the sleeves, knit like this (on both sleeves):
P2, K2tog, knit until you are 4 stitches away from the next marker, SSK, P2

When you´ve decreased 27 times on the sleeves and 13 times on the body piece, you´ll have 120 s.
Change to US 3 needles and knit a rib in the round, K1, P1. Make sure to knit pretty tightly, making sure the neck doesn´t get too wide.
Cast off after about 1.3”.
