BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 241-297-353 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with BabyAlpaca Silk.
Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST over all sts – see explanation above, then work as follows - from RS: 8 sts in garter st (= band): A.1A (= 14 sts), A.1B over the next 196-252-308 sts, finish with A.1C (= 15 sts) and 8 sts in garter st (= band).
Continue this pattern, work bands in garter st until finished measurements.
When piece measures 9 cm / 3½'', beg dec for BUTTONHOLES – see explanation above.
When piece measures 34 cm / 13½'', work as follows – from RS: A.2A (= 14 sts), A.2B over the next 28-42-56 sts, A.2C (= 23 sts), A.3A (= 19 sts), A.3B over the next 70-98-126 sts, A.3C (= 23 sts), A.4A (= 22 sts), A.4B over the next 28-42-56 sts, A.4C (= 14 sts).
When the first 13 rows in A.2, A.3 and A.4 have been worked, put piece aside.
9 sts have now been dec in each side, and 223-279-335 sts remain on needle.

SLEEVES:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 87-101-115 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with BabyAlpaca Silk.
Work 2 ridges, then work as follows: - from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, A.1A (= 14 sts), A.1 B over the next 56-70-84 sts, finish with A.1 C (= 15 sts) and 1 edge st in garter st.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue as follows - from RS: 1 edge st, A.5 A (= 20 sts), A.5B over the next 42-56-70 sts, A.5C (= 23 sts), finish with 1 edge st.
When the first 13 rows in A.5 have been worked, put piece aside (also bind off 1 edge st in each side).
There are now 75-89-103 sts on needle.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 as body = 373-457-541 sts.
Work as follows – beg on 14th row (= from WS):
A.4C (= 14 sts), A.4B over the next 28-42-56 sts, A.4A (= 18 sts), A.5C (= 18 sts), A.5B over the next 42-56-70 sts, A.5 A (= 15 sts), A.3C (= 18 sts), A.3B over the next 70-98-126 sts, A.3A (= 15 sts), A.5C (= 18 sts), A.5B over the next 42-56-70 sts, A.5 A (= 15 sts), A.2C (= 18 sts), A.2B over the next 28-42-56 sts, finish with A.2A (= 14 sts).
Continue this pattern while AT THE SAME TIME working and dec according to pattern.
Every time 14 rows of A.3/A.5 have been worked, work 1 B less between A and C.
Work until pattern A.2-A.5 have been worked 1 time vertically. Now repeat the 28 last rows in all patterns.
Continue until 56-70-84 rows with pattern A.2–A.5 have been worked. Then continue with A.6 over sts from A.2 and A.7 over sts from A.4. Work the other sts as before.
When A.6 and A.7 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 97-125-153 sts on needle.
Slip sts from stitch holders back on needle, pick up approx. 14 sts along the side on A.6/A.7.
Work 2 ridges over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec evenly so that there are 93-111-129 sts on needle. Bind off.
