Begin knitting from the bottom to top.
Cast on 64 sts or any other number of sts to knit one half of the sweater.
Front body part
1st row (right side) – sl.st.1, P2L to end
2nd row (wrong side) – k* to end
*make loops longer then knit them
3rd row – sl.st.1, p to end
4th row – sl.st.1, k to end
5, 7, 9, 11 rows = 3rd row
6, 8, 10, 12 rows = 4th row
Repeat the pattern starting from the 1st row until you knit to about your waistline.
Decrease two stitches
44th row (wrong side) – sl.st.1, k1, k2tog, k to last 4 sts; k2tog, k2
Continue working the 12 row pattern without decreasing sts.
First front shoulder part
When you knit about 10 repeats/120 rows, use 16 sts to work each front shoulder part.
121st row (right side) – sl.st.1 P2L15
122nd row = 2nd row
123rd row = 3rd row
124th row = 4th row
125, 127, 129, 131 rows = 3rd row
126, 128, 130, 132 rows = 4th row
Second front shoulder part
Attach the yarn 16 sts before the end of the last body row. Then work the 12 row pattern totally the same as you worked for the first front shoulder part.
Back body part
Cast on 64 sts and work rows for the back body part totally the same as for the front body part, but knit 11 repeats/132 rows instead of 10 repeats/120 rows.
Back shoulder part
For each back shoulder parts use 16 sts and work just one row – sl.st.1, P2L15.
