Cast on 314-354-394-434-474-514 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1 with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter. Work rib as follows (first row = RS): 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see above, * K2 / P3 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain, K2, 1 edge st in GARTER ST. Continue like this until piece measures 2 cm / 3/4’’, now dec all P3 to P2 (as seen from RS) = 252-284-316-348-380-412 sts. Continue in rib, K2 / P2, with 1 edge st in garter st each side. When piece measures 12 cm / 4¾’’ dec all P2 to P1 (as seen from RS) = 190-214-238-262-286-310 sts. Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 and continue in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾’’-16 1/8’’-16½’’-17’’-17¼’’-17¾’’ work next row as follows from RS: 41-47-54-59-65-71 sts (= front piece), bind off 12 sts for armhole, 84-96-106-120-132-144 sts (= back piece), bind off 12 sts for armhole, 41-47-54-59-65-71 sts (= front piece) = 166-190-214-238-262-286 sts left on needle.
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 80-80-80-88-88-88 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter. Work rib, K2 / P2. When piece measures 10 cm / 4’’ dec all P2 to P1 = 60-60-60-66-66-66 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 and continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 11-11-11-14-14-14 cm inc 1 st each side of marker mid under sleeve, repeat the inc on every 4.5-3.5-2.5-2.5-2-2 cm / 1¾”-1¼”-7/8”-7/8”-3/4”-3/4” a total of 8-11-14-13-15-17 times = 76-82-88-92-96-100 sts. When piece measures 48 cm / 19” bind off 12 sts mid under sleeve = 64-70-76-80-84-88 sts left on needle. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.

YOKE: Slip sleeves on the same circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 as body piece where bind off for armhole = 294-330-366-398-430-462 sts. Work 3-5-9-13-15-17 rows stockinette st with black Alpaca + Glitter, AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 5-8-11-10-9-8 sts evenly = 289-322-355-388-421-454 sts. Now continue in M.1 (first row = RS) with 1 edge st in garter st each side, work the last but 1 st on row like first st in M.1, but without the dec, to make the pattern identical on both front pieces. When all dec are complete there are 107-119-131-143-155-167 sts on needle and piece measures approx 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾’’-23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25¼’’-26’’-26¾’’.
Work 1 row with off-white (from WS), AT THE SAME TIME dec 15-19-23-27-31-35 sts evenly = 92-100-108-116-124-132 sts. Now work shortened rows mid back with off-white as follows: Work 56-60-64-68-72-76 sts, turn, work 20 sts, turn, work 30 sts, turn, work 40 sts. Continue like this with 10 more sts before each turn until you have worked shortened rows on a total of 60-80-80-100-120 sts, turn and work return row and work 1 row on all sts. Slip sts on a stitch holder.

Work rib as follows (first row = WS): 1 edge st in garter st, * P2 / K2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P2 and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue with K over K and P over P until rib measures 3 cm / 1 1/8’’, bind off loosely.

RIGHT FRONT BAND: Like left front band, but after 1 cm / 3/8’’ make 9 buttonholes evenly distributed (make buttonholes in P-sections as seen from RS). 1 BUTTONHOLE = P2 tog and make 1 YO – place the bottom buttonhole in the 2nd P-section and the top one approx 6 cm / 2 3/8’’ from neckline (the last buttonhole is made on the neck).

NECK: Worked with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1 as follows: Pick up 8 sts on right front band (inside 1 edge st), work the 92-100-108-116-124-132 sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 8 sts on left front band = 108-116-124-132-140-148 sts.

DECREASING TIP:
Dec as follows before marker: K2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: K2 tog into back of loop.

HEEL DECREASES:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 8-9-9 sts remain, K2 tog into back of loop, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 8-9-9 sts remain, P2 tog, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work row until 7-8-8 sts remain, K2 tog into back of loop, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work row until 7-8-8 sts remain, P2 tog, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 14-14-16 sts on needle.
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 108-108-116 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 with off-white. Work rib, K2 / P2 for 8 cm / 3 1/8’’.
K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 20 sts evenly = 88-88-96 sts. Continue in M.2. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
After M.2 piece measures approx 21 cm / 8¼”. Insert a marker at beg of round. Continue in black stockinette st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st each side of marker – SEE DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every 4-5-5 round a total of 16-14-16 times = 56-60-64 sts. When piece measures 42-44-46 cm / 16½”-17¼”-18” keep the first 28-30-32 sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining 28-30-32 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot).
Continue in stockinette st back and forth on heel-sts for 5-5.5-6 cm / 2’’-2¼’’-2 3/8’’ - insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above.
After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts each side of heel and slip the 28-30-32 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 68-72-80 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 28-30-32 sts on upper foot. Continue in stockinette st in the round, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on upper foot, and K tog the first 2 sts AFTER the second marker on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 8-8-10 times = 52-56-60 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-19-22 cm / 7”-7½”-8¾” from marker on heel (= approx 4-5-5 cm / 1½”-2”-2” remain). Insert a marker each side with 26-28-30 sts on upper foot and 26-28-30 sts under foot. Continue in stockinette st AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: Before marker: K2 tog. After marker: K2 tog into back of loop.
Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-5-5 times and then on every round 7-7-8 times = 8 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
