BODY:
Cast on 152-172-192 (212-232) sts on circular needle size 2 mm with light sea green Baby Alpaca Silk. Work in RIB - see explanation above - for 3-3-3 (4-4) cm.
Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work in stocking st and STRIPES - see explanation above - while AT THE SAME TIME dec 38-42-46 (50-56) sts evenly on 1st round = 114-130-146 (162-176) sts. Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 57-65-73 (81-88) sts = mid of each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 15-16-17 (18-19) cm, cast off 8-8-8 (10-12) sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 4-4-4 (5-6) sts on each side of both markers). Then finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 49-57-65 (71-76) sts. Continue to cast off for armholes in each side as follows: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 2-3-3 (5-4) times = 33-39-47 (49-56) sts. When piece measures 23-25-27 (29-31) cm, cast off the middle 19-21-25 (27-30) sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 2 sts on next row from neck = 5-7-9 (9-11) sts remain on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 24-26-28 (29½-31½) cm.

FRONT PIECE:
= 49-57-65 (71-76) sts. Continue to cast off for armholes in each side as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 20-22-23 (25-26) cm, slip the middle 9-11-15 (17-20) sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off for neck at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 3 times. After all cast offs and dec are done, 5-7-9 (9-11) sts remain on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 24-26-28 (29½-31½) cm.

FRONT NECK EDGE:
Knit up from RS approx. 48-60-68 (72-80) sts incl sts on stitch holder at the front (divisible by 4) along the neck line at the front on circular needle size 2 mm with light sea green. Work rib back and forth on needle with 1 edge st in garter st and 2 K sts in each side (seen from RS). When neck edge measures 2-2-2 (3-3) cm, loosely cast off with K over K and P over P.

BACK NECK EDGE:
Knit up from RS approx. 36-40-44 (48-52) sts (divisible by 4) along the neck line at the back and work rib as on front piece.

FRONT SHOULDER EDGE:
Knit up from RS along the front of one shoulder (also over sleeve and neck edge) approx. 20-24-28 (32-36) sts (divisible by 4) on circular needle size 2 mm with light sea green. Work rib back and forth with 1 edge st in garter st and 2 K sts in each side (seen from RS). When edge measures approx. 1-1.5 cm, cast off for 2 button holes. 1 button hole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts. Each button hole should be at least 3 sts from the edge in each side. When edge measures 2-2-2 (3-3) cm, cast off with K over K and P over P. Repeat at the front on the other shoulder.
