GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

PATTERN: See diagrams M.1 and M.2. Diagrams show the pattern from RS.

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 86 sts on needle size 5 mm with Alaska and work 2 rows garter st, AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 24 sts evenly on the middle 58 sts = 110 sts. Work next row as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, M.2 on the next 12 sts, M.1 (= 82 sts), M.2 on the next 12 sts and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue in pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 48 cm work 2 rows garter st on all sts (= folding edge), AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 24 sts evenly on the middle 82 sts = 86 sts. Now continue in M.2 with 2 edge sts in garter st each side. When piece measures 96 cm insert a marker in piece, and when piece measures 102 cm make 6 buttonholes as follows: 2 garter sts, M.2 on the next 5 sts, cast off 2 sts for buttonhole, * work M.2 on the next 12 sts, cast off 2 sts for buttonhole *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times, and finish with M.2 on the next 5 sts and 2 garter sts. Cast on 2 new sts over cast off sts on next row. Continue in M.2 with 2 garter sts each side until piece measures 104 cm. Work 2 rows garter st on all sts and cast off. Piece measures approx 105 cm.

Fold piece by the garter st rows at 48 cm and by marker so that buttonholes are on the outside of cover. Sew side seams from RS through all layers. Sew on buttons.
