LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. LOOSELY cast on 152-156-160-164-172-176 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Baby Merino or Safran. Continue as follows – from RS: 5 GARTER STS – SEE ABOVE, * K2/P2 *, repeat from *-* on the next 140-144-148-152-160-164 sts, and finish with K2 and 5 garter sts. Work 4 cm rib like this. Now work 2 rows garter st, AT THE SAME TIME on first row inc 0-0-2-2-0-0 sts evenly = 152-156-162-166-172-176 sts. Insert 3 markers in piece from RS as follows:
Marker-1 = after 78-78-84-84-90-90 sts.
Marker-2 = after 110-112-118-120-126-128 sts.
Marker-3 = after 147-151-157-161-167-171 sts.
Leave markers in the same place until finished measurements in order to have the turns in the same place throughout. Continue as follows - from RS: 5 garter sts, M.1A (= 2 sts), M.1B on the next 48-48-54-54-60-60 sts, M.1 C (= 3 sts), M.2 (= 4 sts), P4, * M.3 (= 12 sts), P 4-5-5-6-6-7 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, and finish with M.3, P5 and 5 garter sts. Continue in pattern like this until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! AT THE SAME TIME work turns - SEE ABOVE! Continue with turns until piece measures 26-28-30-33-36-39 cm from cast on row – measured along bottom edge. Now slip the 74-78-78-82-82-86 sts towards neck on a stitch holder and continue on the bottom 78-78-84-84-90-90 sts only.
