BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 140-151-162-184-206-228 sts (incl 4 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm with 1 thread BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 thread Kid-Silk. K 3 rows (1st row = WS). Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Work 2 rows in stocking st with 4 band sts in each side worked in GARTER ST until finished measurements – see explanation above. Then work diagram M.1 with 4 band sts in each side. When diagram M.1 has been worked, K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-3-7-8-9-10 sts evenly (do not dec over band sts) = 134-148-155-176-197-218 sts. Then K 3 rows back and forth (= 2 ridges) and 2 rows in stocking st. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8 cm, beg to cast off for BUTTON HOLES – see explanation above! Then work diagram M.2 with 4 band sts in each side. When diagram M.2 has been worked, K 1 row from RS while at the same time dec 6-8-3-6-3-6 sts evenly (do not dec over band sts) = 128-140-152-170-194-212 sts. K 3 rows back and forth over all sts, piece now measures approx. 20 cm. Continue in stocking st. Insert 2 markers in the piece; 34-37-40-44-50-55 sts in from each side (= 60-66-72-82-94-102 sts between markers on back piece). When piece measures 21 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers. Repeat inc every 6th-6th-4th-4th-4th-4th row a total of 3-3-6-6-6-6 times = 140-152-176-194-218-236 sts.
At the same time when piece measures approx. 28-29-30-31-32-33 cm (adjust so that next row is from WS), K 3 rows back and forth. Then work 2 rows in stocking st before continuing with diagram M.3 with 4 band sts in each side as before. When diagram M.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, K 2 rows back and forth (1st row = RS). Work next row as follows from RS: K 35-38-43-47-52-57 sts, cast off 4-4-6-6-8-8 sts for armhole, K 62-68-78-88-98-106 sts, cast off 4-4-6-6-8-8 sts for armhole and K 35-38-43-47-52-57 sts. Piece now measures approx. 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm.
Finish each part separately.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 35-38-43-47-52-57 sts. READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
PATTERN: K 1 row from WS, K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. Continue with diagram M.3 until finished measurements with 1 edge st towards the armhole and 4 band sts towards mid front (work the sts that do not fit diagram M.3 towards armhole in stocking st).
ARMHOLES: At the same time on 1st row from the side, dec 1 st for armhole (there are no dec in size S). Repeat dec on every other row 0-0-1-3-4-5 more times = 35-37-41-43-47-51 sts.
BROAD SHOULDER: When piece measures 2-3-4-5-6-7 cm (after dividing for armhole, i.e. 2 cm after armhole dec are done), inc 1 st inside edge st towards armhole by making 1 YO. On next row work YOs twisted to avoid holes (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front). Repeat inc every 2 cm a total of 6-4-3-3-2-2 times – work the inc sts in stocking st until they fit diagram M.3.
NECK DEC: At the same time when piece measures 42-44-45-47-48-50 cm, slip the outermost 10-10-11-11-11-13 sts towards mid front on a stitch holder for neck (work them from WS before slipping them on the stitch holder). Then cast off at beg of every row from neck (= WS): 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 3 times (work in stocking st over the sts that do not fit the pattern when dec).
After all inc and dec, 24-24-26-28-31-33 sts remain on needle.
When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, cast off all sts.

When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm, cast off the middle 24-24-26-28-28-30 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 1 st on next row towards the neck = 24-24-26-28-31-33 sts remain on the shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 164-172-184-184-192-200 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with only 1 thread Kid-Silk. K 3 rows back and forth (1st row = WS). On next row K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 82-86-92-92-96-100 sts. P 1 row from WS. Add 1 thread BabyAlpaca Silk (so that there is 1 thread BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 thread Kid-Silk) and K all sts tog 2 by 2 again = 41-43-46-46-48-50 sts. K 3 rows back and forth. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work 2 rows in stocking st. Continue as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, 3-4-0-0-1-2 sts in stocking st, work diagram M.1 3-3-4-4-4-4 times, 3-4-0-0-1-2 sts in stocking st and 1 edge st in garter st. When diagram M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, K 1 row from RS while at the same time inc 3-1-5-5-3-1 sts evenly = 44-44-51-51-51-51 sts. K 3 rows back and forth, then 2 rows in stocking st before working diagram M.2 1 time vertically with 1 edge st in each side in garter st. Continue with K 4 rows back and forth (= 2 ridges), then work in stocking st until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row in stocking st (piece now measures approx. 19 cm), inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 4-3-3½-3-2-2 cm 7-9-8-9-11-12 times = 58-62-67-69-73-75 sts. When piece measures 47-47-46-45-44-43 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width), cast off 5 sts at beg of every row 2 times in each side, then cast off all sts. Piece measures approx. 49-49-48-47-46-45 cm.

NECK EDGE:
Sew the shoulder seams. Knit up approx. 90 to 110 sts around the neck (incl sts on stitch holders at the front) on circular needle size 4 mm with 1 thread BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 thread Kid-Silk.
