Row 2 (wrong side): * K 3, P 2 *, repeat from * - *.

Decreasing tips: All decs are made on right side rows.
Dec by P 2 tog each side of the center 6 sts.

Increasing tips: So that the number of sts remains constant, you must inc 1 st at each side for every dec at center. Inc on right side rows by K 2 sts in 1 st. Make incs inside 1 edge st to keep the edge smooth. Knit the increased sts in the rib pattern.

Instructions:-
Front: Cast on 95-105-115-125-135 sts and knit rib, keeping 1 edge st in garter st at each side – begin and end rib with P 3 at each side. Put a marker at center front, between 2 K sts.
After 1 cm start dec at the center front and inc at sides – see Decreasing tips and Increasing tips above – dec and inc every other row.
When the piece measures approx. 32-33-34-35-36 cm – Sizes XS, S and M shall have K 1 (edge st) and K 2 at each side, and Sizes L and XL shall have K 1 (edge st) and P 3 at each side – bind off 3-3-3-6-6 sts at each side for armhole = 89-99-109-114-123 sts. Continue to dec at center front but do not inc at sides, so that the armhole will be automatically formed. Knit the 3 outermost sts at each side in garter st.
When there are 63-63-73-73-83 sts on needles (the piece measures approx. 41-45-46-48-49 cm) put the center 27-27-27-27-27 sts on a st holder for the neck. Then continue rib as before, and bind off for the neck every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-1-1-2 times and 1 st 2-2-2-2-3 times = 11-11-16-16-16 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm.

Back: Cast on and knit the same as the front. When there are 63-63-73-73-83 sts on needles end dec at center back and knit rib with 3 sts in garter st at each side until the piece measures 47-49-51-53-55 cm. Bind off the center 33-33-33-33-43 sts for the neck. Then bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 11-11-16-16-16 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder- and side seams using edge sts as seam allowance.
Neckband: Pick up approx. 90-110 sts (incl. sts on st holder) around the neck on short circular needles; join and knit 5 rows stockinette st for rolled edge and then bind off.
