----------------------------------------------------------

FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 94-105-115-126-136-147 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work as follows (from RS): * K 3, K 2 tog, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3-0-3-0-3-0 sts remain, K these sts = 81-90-99-108-117-126 sts.
Work next row from WS as follows: K 1 edge st * P 1, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, P 1 and K 1 edge st.
Then work diagram M.1 over all sts, with 1 edge st in each side worked K on all rows (diagram M.1 starts and ends with 1 K st, seen from RS, before edge st in each side).
When piece measures approx. 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½’’-19’’-19Ό’’-19Ύ’’-20’’-20½’’, work next row as follows from RS: bind off 4 sts for armhole, work 26-30-34-38-42-46 sts in diagram M.1 as before (= left front piece), bind off 21-22-23-24-25-26 sts for neck, and work the rest of row in diagram M.1 as before (= 30-34-38-42-46-50 sts). Turn and bind off 4 sts for armhole, work the rest of row = 26-30-34-38-42-46 sts remain on right front piece.
Slip sts in the left side on a stitch holder.

RIGHT SIDE:
Continue to work diagram M.1 over sts on needle, while at the same time binding off for armhole at the beg of every row from the side: 3 sts 0-0-1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 0-1-1-2-2-3 times and 1 st 2-3-3-4-4-5 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm / 21Ό’’-21 5/8’’-22’’-22½’’-22Ύ’’-23Ό’’, dec 1 st towards the neck, repeat dec when piece measures 60-61-62-63-64-65 cm / 23 5/8’’-24’’-24 3/8’’-24Ύ’’-25Ό’’-25½’’.
After all bind offs and dec are done, 22-23-24-25-26-27 sts remain on needle.
Bind off when piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26Ύ’’-27½’’-28 3/8’’-29 1/8’’-30’’-30Ύ’’.

LEFT SIDE:
Slip the stitches on the stitch holder back on needle and work as right side but reversed.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work as on front piece until piece measures 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½’’-19’’-19Ό’’-19Ύ’’-20’’-20½’’. Now bind off for armholes at beg of every row in each side: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 0-0-1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 0-1-1-2-2-3 times and 1 st 2-3-3-4-4-5 times = 69-72-75-78-81-84 sts.
When piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26’’-26Ύ’’-27½’’-28 3/8’’-29 1/8’’-30’’, bind off the middle 25-26-27-28-29-30 sts for neck. Work each shoulder (= 22-23-24-25-26-27 sts) separately until piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26Ύ’’-27½’’-28 3/8’’-29 1/8’’-30’’-30Ύ’’, bind off.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 57-57-60-60-63-66 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk.
K 1 row from RS while at the same time dec 6 sts evenly = 51-51-54-54-57-60 sts.
Work next row from WS as follows: K 1 edge st * P 1, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with P 1 and K 1 edge st.
Then work diagram M.1 over all sts, with 1 edge st in each side worked K on all rows. (Diagram M.1 starts and ends with K 1, seen from RS, before edge st in each side.)
When piece measures 12 cm / 4Ύ’’, inc 1 st in each side inside edge st. Repeat inc every 4½-4½-4½-3-3-3 cm / 1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8” a total of 9-9-9-12-12-12 times = 69-69-72-78-81-84 sts – work the inc sts gradually in diagram M.1.
When piece measures 52-51-50-49-48-47 cm / 20½”-20”-19Ύ”-19Ό”-19”-18½” (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) bind off at beg of every row in each side: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 2-4-5-6-8-9 times. Then bind off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 59 cm / 23 1/4’’, then bind off 3 sts 1 time in each side. Bind off, the piece measures approx. 60 cm / 23 5/8’’ in all sizes.

ASSEMBLY:

SHAWL COLLAR:
Beg mid front on left side of sts bound off for neck. Pick up on circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk: 38 to 45 sts up to shoulder, then pick up 26 to 32 sts in the back of neck, and finally 38 to 45 sts down along left side of neck dec = 102 to 122 sts (do not pick up sts where sts were dec in front of neck).
K 1 row from WS while AT THE SAME TIME inc no of sts to 128-134-140-146-152-158. Then work rib as follows (from RS): K 2 sts that are K on all rows, * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 1 and then K 2 sts that K on all rows.
Continue like this until collar measures approx. 5 cm / 2’’. Now inc 1 st in each of the middle 12 P-sections, seen from RS (= back of neck) = 140-146-152-158-164-170 sts.
Continue with K over K and P over P until collar measures approx. 11-11-12-12-13-13 cm / 4 3/8’’-4 3/8’’-4Ύ’’-4Ύ’’-5 1/8’’-5 1/8’’ - adjust so that next row is from RS. Work 4 rows in stockinette st over all sts, then bind off all sts with K from RS. The outermost edge is supposed to roll.
Place the collar double (right side over left side) at the bottom of neck opening and sew it to the neck line through both layers.

MORE ASSEMBLY:
Sew in sleeves and sew under arm and side seams in one inside 1 edge st.
