Knitting tip: If your knitting tension doesn’t fit, i.e. is too tight, the raglan will be too short and the armhole to small. You may compensate for this by working 1 extra row without dec at regular intervals in between dec.
Decreasing tip (applies to raglan):
Make all dec from RS:
Beg 2 sts before Marking Thread (MT): K2 tog, MT, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.

Body piece: Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 210-220-230-250-270-290 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 1 thread Fabel 905 + 1 thread Alpaca 517. Work 6 rounds garter st – see above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and continue ion reverse stocking st. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 28 cm continue as follows: * 7-8-9-11-13-15 sts in reverse stocking st, M.1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 10 times = 140-150-160-180-200-220 sts. Work 6 rounds garter st, at the same time on first round adjust no of sts to 136-150-164-180-202-222. Insert 2 Marking Threads (MT) in piece, 1 at the beg of round and 1 after 68-75-82-90-101-111 sts (to mark the sides). Continue in stripes – see above. When piece measures 32 cm inc 1 st on each side of both MT (= 4 inc per round) on every 5.5-5.5-6-6-7-7 cm a total of 3 times = 148-162-176-192-214-234 sts. When piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm cast off 8 sts each side (i.e. 4 sts on each side of both MT) for armhole = 132-146-160-176-198-218 sts. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 40-40-42-44-46-46 sts on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm with 1 thread Fabel 905 + 1 thread Alpaca 8309. Work 6 rounds garter st. Insert 1 MT at beg of round. Change to needle size 5 mm and continue in reverse stocking st and stripes – see above. When piece measures 8 cm inc 1 st on both sides of MT on every 4.5-3.5-3-3-2.5-2.5 cm a total of 10-11-12-13-14-15 times = 60-62-66-70-74-76 sts. When piece measures 50-49-49-48-48-47 cm cast off 4 sts on both sides of MT for armhole = 52-54-58-62-66-68 sts. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.

Yoke: See Knitting tip! Slip sleeves in on the same circular needle as body piece where cast off for armholes = 236-254-276-300-330-354 sts. Insert a MT in each transition between sleeves and body piece = 4 MT. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and continue in garter st, at the same time dec for raglan – see Decreasing tip.

At the same time when piece measures 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm slip the middle 6-9-10-12-15-17 sts on front piece on a stitch holder and complete piece back and forth on needle.
