TOP:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 251-273-295-339-383-427 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with Alpaca. K 2 rows and continue as follows from RS: 8 GARTER STS - see above, * M.1 (= 15 sts) - see above, 7 garter sts *, repeat from *-* until 23 sts remain, finish with M.1 and 8 garter sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 there are 229-249-269-309-349-389 sts on needle. Work next row from RS as follows: 8 garter sts,* M.2 (= 13 sts), 7 garter sts *, repeat from *-* until 21 sts remain, finish with M.2 and 8 garter sts. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! After 1 vertical repeat of M.2 work next row from RS as follows: 8 garter sts, * M.3 (= 13 sts), 7 garter sts *, repeat from *-* until 21 sts remain, finish with M.3 and 8 garter sts. Insert a marker in the 4th of the 7 garter sts between each repeat = 10-11-12-14-16-18 markers. Continue in M.3 and garter st as before, AT THE SAME TIME on first row in the next repeat dec 1 st to the right of all markers – see DECREASING TIP! (= 10-11-12-14-16-18 dec). Repeat the dec to the left and to the right alternately on the first row of M.3 a total of 4 times for all sizes = 189-205-221-253-285-317 sts. After a total of 8 vertical repeats of M.3 change to circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1. Piece now measures approx 33 cm / 13''.
NOW READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
On next row from RS continue in garter st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-4-8-4-0-0 sts evenly on needle = 193-209-229-257-285-317 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 31-31-33-33-33-33 cm / 12 1/4"-12 1/4"-13"-13"-13"-13" make BUTTONHOLES on right front band – see above! Insert 2 markers in piece, 52-56-61-68-75-83 sts in from each side (back piece = 89-97-107-121-135-151 sts). When piece measures 35 cm / 13 3/4'' for all sizes inc 1 st each side of both markers, and repeat the inc on every 1-1-1-3-3-3 cm / 3/8"-3/8"-3/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" a total of 4-4-4-3-3-3 times = 209-225-245-269-297-329 sts.

Now dec 1 st for neck towards mid front each side (dec by K tog the 2 first sts) and repeat the dec on every other row a total of 18-19-20-22-23-24 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm / 16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''-18'' bind off 6 sts each side for armhole (= 3 sts each side of marker) and now complete front and back pieces separately.
