Note: Read ALL these instructions thoroughly BEFORE starting to knit. There may be sections where there are two shapings to work at the same time (such as necklines or waist shaping).


1. Cast on 148 sts on size 6 circular needle. Join the circle, taking care not to twist the stitches. Mark the side 'seams' at the beginning and at the halfway point (74 sts). Work in K1P1 ribbing for 2.8 ins. Inc 10 sts evenly across the round to 158 sts total.

2. Change to size 8 circular needle and Stocking Stitch. Work even until piece measures 11.4 ins (57 rounds), excluding hem.


1. Cast on 31 sts on size 6 dp needles. Join the circle, taking care not to twist the stitches. Mark the 'seam' at the beginning of the round. Work in K1P1 ribbing for 2.3 ins. Inc 27 sts evenly across the round to 58 sts total.

2. Change to size 8 dp needles and Stocking Stitch.

3. Work even until sleeve measures 14.7 ins (74 rounds), excluding hem.

4. Place these sts on a holder and work the second sleeve.


1. Mark the front so you know which part of the body it is.

2. Underarm sts (four sets). Transfer 8 sts to a holder, centred at each of the four 'seam' markers on the body and the sleeves. These sts will be left unworked until the top shaping is complete, then sewn or grafted together to join the body and sleeve at the armhole.

3. Hold (and temporarily pin) the sleeves beside the body (all right side out), with the underarm sts and 'seams' matching. With the right side facing, and starting where the back meets the left sleeve, pick up and knit sts as follows: 50 from the left sleeve, 71 from the front, 50 from the right sleeve and 71 from the back. Total 242 sts. At the same time, place four markers for the raglan shaping, one at each boundary between body and sleeve. Reminder: do NOT work the underarm sts.


1. Work raglan shaping as follows: dec 1 st both sides of each raglan marker on every 3rd round 8 times, then every 2nd round 12 times. Continue work to total 50 rows for yoke (70 sts remaining).


1. Transfer yoke sts to size 6 circular needle.

2. Work 1.0 ins (6 rows) in K1P1 ribbing.

3. Cast off loosely.


1. Graft or sew the sleeve and body sts together at the underarms.

2. Darn/weave/sew in all loose ends.
