Pattern: * 2 rows stocking st on RS, 1 row stocking st on WS *, repeat from *-*.

Measuring tip: Because of the pattern, the piece should be measured whilst being held up to maintain the measurements in the sketch.

Front piece: Read measuring tip! Cast on 86-94-102-110-120 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm with 1 strand Muskat + 1strand Glitter. Work garter st upwards. Remember knitting tension! When the piece measures 10 cm cast off 1 st in each side every 5th cm in total 4 times = 78-86-94-102-112 sts.

Read the next description carefully before continuing!

When the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm, cast off the middle 16-16-18-20-20 sts for neck.
