Knitting Tension: 17 sts x 22 rows on needles size 5 mm and double thread in stocking sts. = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: *knit 2, purl 2*, repeat from *-*

Decreasing, applies to armhole: decrease within 1 st. Decrease after 1 st as follows: : slip 1st as if to knit, knit , psso Decrease before 1 st as follows: knit 2 together.

Increasing, applies to shoulder: Increase within 2 sts by picking up st from previous row and knit it.

Back piece: Cast on 64-72-80-88-96 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st at each side – all seam sts are knitted in garter st) on circular needle size 4.5mm (knit back and forth on circular needle) with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Purl 1 row from wrong side and continue in rib with 1 seam st and 2 sts each side in garter. When the piece measures 12 cm change to needle size 5mm and stocking stitch, at the same time adjusting the no of sts on row to 62-70-78-86-94 (on the first row after finishing the rib). Remember to check your knitting tension. When the piece measures 17-17-18-19-19 cm, increase 1 st each side every 5-5-7-7-7 cm a total of 4-4-3-3-3 times = 70-78-84-92-100 sts. When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39 cm, cast off for armhole at each side on every other row as follows: 3-4-5-5-5 sts 1 time, 1 st 2-3-3-5-7 times (see Decreasing above) = 60-64-68-72-76 sts. When piece measures 40-42-44-46-48 cm, increase 1 st each side for shoulder (see Increasing above) on every 2.5-2.5-2.5-4-4 cm a total of 4-4-4-3-3 times = 68-72-76-78-82 sts. When piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm cast off the centre 22-22-24-24-26 sts the collar. Cast off at each neck edge 1 st 1 time = 22-24-25-26-27 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off remaining sts when piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm

Left front piece: Cast on 34-38-42-46-50 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st each side) on circular needle 4.5mm with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Purl 1 row from wrong side and continue in rib with 1 seam st and 2 garter sts towards mid front and 1 seam st and 2 purled sts at side. When the piece measures 12 cm change to needle size 5mm and stocking stitch, at the same time adjusting the no of sts on row to 31-35-39-43-47 (on the first row after finishing the rib).
Read all of the next section before continuing:
Increases at side: when piece measures 17-17-18-19-19 cm, increase at side as described on back piece
Decreasing for collar: At the same time, when piece measures 22-23-24-25-26 cm, decrease 1 st for collar towards mid front on every 2 cm a total of 12-12-13-13-14 times.
Armhole: At the same time, when piece measures 35-36-37-38-39 cm, decrease for armhole as described on back piece.
Increasing for shoulder: At the same time, when piece measures 40-42-44-46-48 cm, increase for shoulder as described on back piece.
After all decreases and increases are made, there are 22-24-25-26-27 sts left on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm.

Right front piece : Cast on and knit as left front, but mirrored.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Sew side seams within 1 seam st.
Front band: Pick up approx 222 to 254 sts (must be divisible by 4 + 2) around right front piece, neck and left front piece on circular needles size 4.5mm with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Purl 1 row from wrong side and knit 1 row from right side. Continue in rib with 2 knitted sts and 2 purled sts at each side. When band measures 9-9-10-10-11 cm, cast off loosely in rib.
Arm band: Pick up approx 68 to 84 sts (must be divisible by 4) within 1 st round armhole on circular needles size 4.5mm with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Purl 1 row, knit 1 row and continue in rib. When band measures 2 cm, cast off loosely in rib.
Belt: Cast on 5 sts on double pointed needles size 4.5mm with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Knit as follows: knit 1 row *push sts to right side of needle where first row was knitted from, pull thread on back of piece and knit 1 row from same side*, repeat from *-*. This way, you knit a round belt without having to purl. Cast off when belt measures approx 175-220 cm.
