GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

INCREASE TIP (applies to neck line):
Inc by making 1 YO inside 2 edge sts in garter st. On next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front to avoid holes).
NOTE: Work the outermost st in neck line a little tight so that the edge looks nice

BUTTON HOLES: 1 button hole = bind off 1 st and make 1 YO on next row over the bind off st.

Front and back piece is worked in one, sideways from arm to arm.

RIGHT SLEEVE: Loosely cast on 26-28-28 (30-30) sts (= bottom of right sleeve) on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 2 strands Alpaca. Work in Garter St - see explanation above. When piece measures 5 cm / 2'', inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 2 cm / 3/4" a total of 6-6-8 (9-11) times = 38-40-44 (48-52) sts.
When piece measures 17-18-20 (24-28) cm / 6 3/4"-7"-8" (9½"-11"), loosely cast on 27-29-34 (39-42) new sts at beg and end of row for front and back piece = 92-98-112 (126-136) sts.
Continue to work until piece measures 9-10-11 (12-13) cm / 3½"-4"-4 3/8" (4 3/4"-5 1/8") from where the sts for front and back piece were cast on (piece measures 26-28-31 (36-41) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (14 1/4"-16 1/8") from cast on edge at the bottom of sleeve).
Work next row from RS as follows: K the first 46-49-56 (63-68) sts on needle (= front piece) and slip the remaining 46-49-56 (63-68) sts on a stitch holder (= back piece). Insert a marker in last row, now measure piece from here.

FRONT PIECE: = 46-49-56 (63-68) sts. Turn piece and bind off the first 6-6-6 (7-7) sts on row for neck.
Then dec 1 st towards the neck on every cm / 3/8'' 3 times in total = 37-40-47 (53-58) sts on needle.
Work until width of front piece = 12.5-14-15.5 (17-18.5) cm / 4 7/8"-5½"-6 1/8" (6 3/4"-7 1/4"). Now bind off for 5-5-5 (6-6) button holes evenly on next row – see explanation above, Note the hole at the top are bound off after 2 sts at neck edge.

K every row until piece measure 4-4.5-5 (5.5-6) cm/1½"-1 3/4"-2" (2 1/4"-2 3/8").
Now inc for neck line in the left side of piece towards the neck on every cm / 3/8'' 3 times in total- see Inc.tips above.

When all sts have been inc for neck, work the two parts tog – see BODY.

BODY: Slip the 46-49-56 (63-68) sts from back piece on to the same needle as left front piece = 92-98-112 (126-136) sts on needle. Insert a new marker in the piece - now measure piece from here! Work until piece measures 9-10-11 (12-13) cm / 3½"-4"-4 3/8" (4 3/4"-5 1/8").
Loosely bind off at beg of the next 2 rows 27-29-34 (39-42) sts in each side = 38-40-44 (48-52) sts remain on needle for left sleeve – now measure piece from here.
When piece measures 2-3-1 (3-3) cm / 3/4"-1 1/8"-3/8" (1 1/8"-1 1/8"), dec 1 st in each side, repeat on every 2 cm / 3/4'' a total of 6-6-8 (9-11) times = 26-28-28 (30-30) sts on needle.
Loosely bind off when sleeve measures 17-18-20 (24-28) cm / 6 3/4"-7"-8" (9½"-11") (piece measures approx. 59-64-71 (82-93) cm / 23 1/4"-25 1/4"-28" (32 1/4"-36 5/8") from arm to arm).

NECK EDGE:

ASSEMBLY: Fold the piece double at the shoulders and sew sleeve and side seams in one in outer loop of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam. Sew on buttons.
