CIRCULAR NEEDLE (60 cm) SIZE 3 mm - or size needed to get 24 sts x 32 rows in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm.
CIRCULAR NEEDLE (80 cm) SIZE 2.5 mm – for edges.
GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.
See diagrams A.1-A.8. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
Dec inside 1 edge st in garter st. All dec are done from RS!
Dec as follows before 1 edge st and 2 sts: K 2 tog.
Dec after 1 edge st as follows: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round P YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.
Worked back and forth on circular needle. First work back piece. Then pick up sts on back piece for sleeves.
Cast on 79-87-97 sts (incl 1 edge st in garter st in each side) on circular needle size 3 mm with BabyAlpaca Silk. Work diagram A.1 over all sts inside 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above, in each side (on 7th row in A.1 K last st before edge st), work A.1 1-1-2 times in total vertically, AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS in diagram inc 2-0-2 sts evenly = 81-87-99 sts. NOTE: Work edge sts in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
Now work inside edge sts in each side of piece as follows: A.2, A.3 11-12-14 times in width, A.4. When A.2-A.4 have been worked vertically, work A.5 (on 5th row K the last st before edge st). When A.5 has been vertically, work next row as follows: 3-0-0 sts in stocking st, A.6 6-7-8 times in width, 4-1-1 sts in stocking st. When A.6 has been worked vertically, continue with A.1 (on 7th row K last st before edge st), AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS in diagram dec 2-0-0 sts evenly = 79-87-99 sts. Work next row from RS as follows: 2-2-0 sts in stocking st, A.7 9-10-12 times in width, 3-3-1 sts in stocking st. When A.X has been worked vertically, repeat A.X 0-1-1 more time before continuing until A.7 has been worked vertically. Now work 2 ridges AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS adjust no of sts to 81-87-99 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side). Now work as follows: A.2, A.3 11-12-14 times in width, A.4. When A.2-A.4 have been worked vertically, continue with A.5 (on 5th row K the last st before edge st). Cast off when the entire A.5 has been worked 1-1-2 times vertically. Piece measures 36-42-47 cm from cast-on edge.
Pick up from RS 88-102-114 sts (incl 1 edge st in garter st in each side) inside 1 edge st in garter st in one side of back piece with BabyAlpaca Silk on circular needle size 3 mm. Work as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, K 3-0-1, A.8 until 4-1-2 sts remain, K 3-0-1, 1 edge st in garter st. Continue like this back and forth. When piece measures 4 cm, beg dec in each side of piece - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec approx. every 2-1½-1 cm 10-14-18 more times = 66-72-76 sts. NOTE: When there is not enough sts to work pattern, work sts in stocking st. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm from cast-on edge, insert a marker in each side (stop sleeve seam here from bottom of sleeve). When piece measures 27 cm, inc 6-4-4 sts evenly on next row from RS = 72-76-80 sts. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work in garter st for 2 cm. Loosely cast off.
Pick up and work another sleeve the same way.
Sew underarm seam from bottom of edge in garter st and up to markers inside 1 edge st in garter st.
Now work an edge in rib in the round as follows: * Beg from RS at the seam under the sleeve (marker), pick up 135-145-155 sts with BabyAlpaca Silk on circular needle size 2.5 mm along sleeve, over back piece and down along one side of the other sleeve until seam (marker) *, repeat from *-* over the opposite side of shoulder piece = 270-290-310 sts. Work rib K 2/P 3 over all sts. When piece measures 2 cm, inc 1 st in every section with P sts - READ INCREASE TIP! There are now 324-348-372 sts. Continue with K 2/P 4 until 4 cm have been worked from pick up edge. Now inc 1 st in every section with P sts the same way as before = 378-406-434 sts. Continue with K 2/P 5 for 2 cm. Rib measures 6 cm. Loosely cast off with K over K and P over P.
