BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 204-224-244-264-294-324 sts (includes 5 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work as follows (1st row = RS): 5 band sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, diagram A-1 until 9 sts remain, work the first 4 sts in A-1 one more time and finish with 5 band sts in garter st.
Continue like this - AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 5-5-5-7-7-7 cm / 2"-2"-2"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4", beg bind off for BUTTONHOLES - see explanation above.
When piece measures approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' work next row as follows from RS: 5 sts in garter st, * K 2 tog, K 2 tog, K 2, K 2 tog, K 2 * (i.e. 10 sts become 7 sts), repeat from *-* until 9 sts remain, K 2 tog, K 2 tog and 5 sts in garter st = 145-159-173-187-208-229 sts.
Insert 2 markers in the piece; 38-42-46-49-54-60 sts in from each side (= 69-75-81-89-100-109 sts between markers on back piece).
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and continue in stockinette st with bands in garter st as before. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 10-10-11-11-12-12 cm / 4''-4''-4 3/8''-4 3/8''-4¾''-4¾'', dec 1 st on each side of every marker, repeat dec every 2 cm / 3/4'' 3 more times = 129-143-157-171-192-213 sts.
When piece measures 20-20-21-21-22-22 cm / 8''-8''-8¼''-8¼''-8¾''-8¾'', inc 1 st on each side of every marker, repeat inc every 2 cm / 3/4'' 3 more times = 145-159-173-187-208-229 sts.
When piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm / 11¾''-12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾'', bind off 6-6-8-8-10-10 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts on each side of every marker) = 133-147-157-171-188-209 sts remain on needle, put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on a short circular needle.
Cast on 90-92-96-98-102-104 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Insert 1 marker at the beg of round.
Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above!
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and continue in stockinette st.
When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', bind off 6-6-8-8-10-10 sts mid under sleeve (= 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts on each side of marker) = 84-86-88-90-92-94 sts remain on needle.
Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body = 301-319-333-351-372-397 sts.
Insert 1 marker in every transition between body and sleeves, in all these transitions work diagram A-2 (i.e. with 6 sts on each side of every marker), work the other sts as before but continue to work bands in garter st.
At the same time (on 1st row from RS) dec for RAGLAN on each side of A-2 – see explanation above!
More sts must be dec on sleeves than on body, this is done as follows: On BODY dec every other row: 22-24-25-23-22-21 times and then every row: 0-0-0-6-10-15 times. On SLEEVES dec every other row: 15-16-17-18-19-20 times and then every row: 16 times for all sizes.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 43-45-46-48-49-51 cm / 17"-17 3/4"-18"-19"-19 1/4"-20", slip the outermost 6 sts in each side towards mid front on a stitch holder for neck. Continue to bind off at beg of every row in each side for neck: 1 st every other row 4-4-5-5-6-6 times in each side and then 1 st every 4th row until raglan dec are done (it is ok if the neck bind off overlaps with raglan dec on front piece). After all dec and bind off, approx. 70 to 80 sts remain on needle. Cut the thread.

NECK EDGE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Pick up (from RS) approx. 15-20 sts at the front along right side of neck (incl sts on stitch holder), then work the remaining 60-70 sts from body on to needle and finally pick up approx. 15-20 sts at the front along left side of neck (including sts on stitch holder) = approx. 90-110 sts.
K 3 rows back and forth – AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row (= WS) K sts over all the cables tog 2 by 2, i.e. dec 4 sts over every raglan = approx. 74-94 sts remain on needle.
When 3 rows have been worked, loosely bind off with K from RS.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog the openings under the sleeves and sew on buttons.
