Moss st:
Row 1: * P1, K1 *, repeat from *-*.
Row 2: K over P and P over K.
Repeat row 2.

Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS.
Work M.1 as follows:
Work 1 row in M.1 (= RS). Work row 2, but turn piece when 1 or 2 sts remain – see Knitting tip-1. Work row 3 in M.1. Work row 4, but turn piece when 1 or 2 sts remain. Continue in M.1 until there are 2 sts left.
Work M.2 as follows:
Work the first 2 rows in M.2 (row 1 = WS). Work row 3, at the end of row work 1 st back into pattern – see Knitting tip-2. Work row 4. Work row 5, at the end of row work 2 sts back into pattern. Continue in M.2 until all sts have been worked back into pattern.

Knitting tip-1: Every time you turn mid piece, tighten thread to avoid a hole.

Knitting tip-2: To avoid holes when sts are worked back into pattern, work first st from right needle and first st from left needle (i.e. the st worked back into pattern) tog as follows: P through both sts, leave st on needle, K into back of loop of both sts (= 2 sts).

Buttonholes: Bind off for buttonholes on right front piece. 1 buttonhole = bind off 4th st from mid front and cast on 1 new st on return row. Bind off for buttonholes when piece measures:
Size S: 20, 28 and 36 cm [8”, 11” and 14Ό”].
Size M: 21, 29 and 37 cm [8Ό”, 11 3/8” and 14½”].
Size L: 22, 30 and 38 cm [8Ύ”, 11Ύ” and 15”].
Size XL: 23, 31 and 39 cm [9”, 12Ό” and 15Ό”].
Size XXL: 24, 32 and 40 cm [9½”, 12½” and 15Ύ”].
Size XXXL: 25, 33 and 41 cm [9Ύ”, 13” and 15Ύ”].

Decreasing tip, applies to neckline:
Make all dec from the RS as follows:
Before 23 sts: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.
After 23 sts: K2 tog.

Increasing tip, applies to neckline:
Make all inc from the RS as follows:
Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, work inc sts in moss st.

BACK PIECE
Cast on 90-98-104-112-124-134 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on needle size 4.5 mm [US 7] with 2 threads Silke-Alpaca. P 1 row from WS and continue with 1 thread in moss st – see above. Remember the knitting gauge/gauge! When piece measures 10 cm [4’’] dec 1 st each side on every 3-3.5-3.5-4-5-5 cm [1 1/8”-1Ό”-1Ό”-1½”-2”-2”] a total of 7 times = 76-84-90-98-110-120 sts. When piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm [16 1/8’’-16½’’-17’’-17Ό’’-17Ύ’’-18’’] bind off for armhole each side at the beg of every row: 3 sts 1-1-1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 1-2-3-4-4-6 times and 1 st 2-3-3-4-6-6 times = 62-64-66-68-70-72 sts. When piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm [22Ύ’’-23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25Ό’’-26’’-26Ύ’’] bind off the middle 16-16-18-20-22-24 sts for neck and dec 1 st on neckline on next row = 22-23-23-23-23-23 sts left on each shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm [23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25Ό’’-26’’-26Ύ’’-27½’’].

LEFT FRONT PIECE
Work 2 sts towards mid front (the last 2 of the 8 moss sts) with 2 threads throughout. Use a separate ball and let it follow the piece. Cast on 48-53-56-60-66-71 sts with Silke-Alpaca on needle size 4.5 mm [US 7]. Work first row from RS as follows: 25-30-33-37-43-48 moss sts, P1, K6, P1, K6, P1, 8 moss sts. Now continue – from WS – with shortened rows as follows (continue in moss sts and K over P): 2 rows on the first 13 sts, 2 rows on the first 25-26-27-28-29-30 sts, 2 rows on the first 37-39-41-43-45-47 sts and 3 rows on all sts. Now continue in M.1 (first row = RS). See Pattern and Knitting tips! See start arrow for your size! After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 (= 2 sts on needle) continue in M.2. See Pattern and Knitting tips! After 1 vertical repeat of M.2 – see arrow for your size – there are 48-53-56-60-66-71 sts on needle. Continue with cables and moss st on all 48-53-56-60-66-71 sts (now work all sts on every row without turns). When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm [14½’’-15’’-15Ό’’-15Ύ’’-16 1/8’’-16½’’] (measured from B in measurement chart) inc 1 st after the 8 sts towards mid front and dec 1 st after 23 sts from mid front – see Decreasing and Increasing tips! I.e. number of sts remain the same but no of sts before the cable inc and no of sts after the cable dec. Dec and inc on the same row on every 2-2-2-1.5-1.5-1.5 cm [3/4”-3/4”-3/4”-½”-½”-½”] a total of 10-11-12-13-14-15 times. At the same time when piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm [16 1/8’’-16½’’-17’’-17Ό’’-17Ύ’’-18’’] bind off for armhole at side as described for back piece = 41-43-44-45-46-47 sts. When piece measures 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm [23Ό”-24”-24Ύ”-25½”-26 3/8”-27 1/8”] dec 4 sts on the cable (work the 13 sts on cable as follows: K2 tog, K2, K2 tog, P1, K2 tog, K2, K2 tog) = 37-39-40-41-42-43 sts. When piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm [23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25Ό’’-26’’-26Ύ’’-27½’’] bind off the outermost 22-23-23-23-23-23 sts for shoulder and continue on the remaining 15-16-17-18-19-20 sts for collar with shortened rows as follows: * work 2 rows on all sts, work 2 rows on 8-8-9-9-10-10 sts towards mid front only *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx 7-7-8-8-9-9 cm [2Ύ’’-2Ύ’’-3 1/8’’-3 1/8’’-3½’’-3½’’] (measured where shortest) from shoulder. Bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE
Like left front piece, but mirrored. Remember to bind off for buttonholes – see above. Mirrored pattern: Cast on 48-53-56-60-66-71 sts with Silke-Alpaca on needle size 4.5 mm [US 7]. Work shortened rows – in the following pattern, as seen from the RS : 8 moss sts, P1,K 6, P1,K 6, P1, 25-30-33-37-43-48 moss sts – as follows – from RS: 2 rows on the first 13 sts, 2 rows on the first 25-26-27-28-29-30 sts, 2 rows on the first 37-39-41-43-45-47 sts, and 4 rows on all sts. Then continue in M.1, but mirrored, i.e. beg at the left side of diagram and work the turns at the end of row from RS.

SLEEVES
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 41-41-43-45-45-47 sts on needle size 4.5 mm [US 7] with 1 thread Silke-Alpaca. Insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) at beg of round. P 1 round and continue in moss st. When piece measures 10 cm [4’’] continue in stockinette st, at the same time inc 1 st on each side of MT on every 4-3.5-3.5-2.5-2-2 cm [1½”-1Ό”-1Ό”-7/8”-3/4”-3/4”] a total of 9-10-11-13-15-16 times = 59-61-65-71-75-79 sts. When piece measures 48-47-47-46-45-44 cm [19”-18½”-18½”-18”-17Ύ”-17Ό”] – less on the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder - bind off 3 sts on each side of MT and complete piece back and forth on needle. Bind off to shape the sleeve cap each side at the beg of every row: 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 1-2-3-4-6-8 times, then 2 sts each side until piece measures 55-55-56-56-57-58 cm [21 5/8”-21 5/8”-22”-22”-22½”-22 Ύ”], now bind off 3 sts each side 1 time and bind off remaining sts. Sleeve measures approx 56-56-57-57-58-59 cm [22”-22”-22½”-22½”-22Ύ”-23Ό”].

ASSEMBLY
Sew shoulder seams. Set in sleeves. Sew side seam inside 1 edge st. Sew collar tog mid back and sew to neckline. Sew on buttons
