LEG:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 48-54-60 (66-72) sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Insert a marker at beg of round = inside of leg. K 1 round, then work rib K 3/P 3. Work rib for 4-4-4 (5-5) cm. K 1 round while dec 6 sts evenly = 42-48-54 (60-66) sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. P 1 round, then work in stocking st. When piece measures 6-6-6 (7-7) cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker, repeat inc every 3-4-5 (5-7) cm a total of 4 times = 50-56-62 (68-74) sts. When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm, divide at inside of leg and finish the piece back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip the legs on the same circular needle). Cast on 1 edge st in each side = 52-58-64 (70-76) sts. When piece measures 18-22-25 (29-34) cm, dec 1 edge st in each side. Put piece aside and knit another leg the same way.

SUIT:
Slip both legs on the same circular needle size 4.5 mm = 100-112-124 (136-148) sts. Continue to work back and forth from mid front as follows (1st row = RS): Cast off 4 sts, K the rest of row. Turn piece, cast off 4 sts and P the rest of row = 92-104-116 (128-140) sts. Continue in stocking st back and forth over all sts.

Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Then work in stocking st.

After all dec for raglan and cast offs for neck, 52-56-64 (72-74) sts remain on the needle and piece measures approx. 45-53-62 (68-77) cm up to shoulder. Cast off all sts.
