GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

Work stripes in garter st as follows, beg from RS:
Row 1-2: K with Cotton Viscose
Row 3-4: K with Alpaca Bouclé
Repeat row 1-4.

Piece is to be soaked and stretched to correct measurements, so bind off even though some cm remain.

Worked back and forth in garter st and sewn tog when finished.
Loosely cast on 59-67-75-82 sts with Alpaca Bouclé on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. K 1 row (= WS). Turn piece. Then work as follows from RS: Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME work STRIPES - see explanation above. When piece measures 27-32-37-41 cm / 10½"-12½"-14½"-16", insert a marker in the piece. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue in garter st and with stripes back and forth until piece measures 102-116-128-136 cm / 40"-45 3/4"-50½"-53½" in length – READ TIP! Adjust so that last stripe is in Alpaca Bouclé.
Loosely bind off. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the piece on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements found at the top of pattern. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.

When garment has been dried, assemble as follows - see chart:
Fold A to B so that the distance between A and D = 10 cm / 4''. Sew short side tog with one long side so that C is sewn to F, and D is sewn to E (E = marker) - see chart.
