BLANKET
Due to number of sts knit back and forth on circular needle.
Using both ends of circular needle size 3mm (to make sure the edge becomes elastic) cast on 169 sts with Alpaca. Remove 1 needle and K3 rows (1st row = wrong side).

Work next row as follows (1st row = right side):
Knit the outermost 8 sts each side in garter sts throughout.
When dec/inc evenly on row as explained below, do not dec/inc over the 8 sts each side.
Work chart M.1 (over sts between the 8 sts each side).
When piece measures approx 19 cm – adjust after 1 full repeat of pattern – knit M.7, at the same time on the 1st row of M.7, dec 26 sts evenly on row = 143 sts.
After M/7 knit M.5 as follows starting from the right side:
M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and then M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 29 cm – adjust after 1 repeat of pattern.
Now knit M.7, at the same time inc 3 sts evenly on the last row of M.7 = 146 sts.
After M.7 knit M.6.
When piece measures approx 64 cm - adjust after 1 repeat of pattern – knit M.7 again, at the same time dec 3 sts evenly on 1st row = 143 sts.
After M.7 work M.5 from the right side: M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 84 cm - adjust after 1 repeat of pattern.
K 2 rows and then cast off loosely from the wrong side.
Note! To ensure the edge doesn’t become too tight make a yo after every 8th st whilst casting off – cast off yo’s as sts.
