BLANKET
Due to number of sts knit back and forth on circular needle.
Using both ends of circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 (to make sure the edge becomes elastic) cast on 169 sts with Alpaca. Remove 1 needle and K3 rows (1st row = wrong side).

Work next row as follows (1st row = right side):
Knit the outermost 8 sts each side in garter sts throughout.
When dec/inc evenly on row as explained below, do not dec/inc over the 8 sts each side.
Work chart M.1 (over sts between the 8 sts each side).
When piece measures approx 19 cm / 7½'' – adjust after 1 full repeat of pattern – work M.7, at the same time on the 1st row of M.7, dec 26 sts evenly on row = 143 sts.
After M/7 work M.5 as follows starting from the right side:
M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and then M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 29 cm / 11½" – stop after 1 full repeat of pattern.
Now work M.7, at the same time inc 3 sts evenly on the last row of M.7 = 146 sts.
After M.7 work M.6.
When piece measures approx 64 cm / 25'' - stop after 1 full repeat of pattern – work M.7 again, at the same time dec 3 sts evenly on 1st row = 143 sts.
After M.7 work M.5 starting from the right side: M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 84 cm / 33'' - stop after 1 full repeat of pattern.
K 2 rows and then bind off loosely from the wrong side.
Note! To ensure the edge doesn’t become too tight make a yo after every 8th st whilst binding off – bind off yo’s as sts.
