GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

Row 1: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*.
Row 2: K over P and P over K. Repeat 2nd row.

Worked back and forth on a circular needle to make room for all the sts with one strand of each yarn. Cast on 33-34-36-37-39-41 sts on circular needle size 15 mm with 1 strand Andes and 1 strand Fabel. K 2 rows. Then work Moss st over all sts - see explanation above. When piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm, cast on 10-10-9-8-7-6 new sts at the end of next row from RS = 43-44-45-45-46-47 sts. Insert 1 marker - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! When piece measures approx. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from marker (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), work the first 22 sts as before, then slip them on 1 stitch holder = 21-22-23-23-24-25 sts remain on needle, work the rest of row. Insert another marker (= mid on top of shoulder) – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work 1 row over sts on needle. Slip sts on 1 stitch holder and put piece aside.

Work as right but reversed, then continue with back piece without slipping sts on 1 stitch holder.

Continue with moss st on next row as follows from RS: Work sts from left front piece + sleeve, cast on 9-9-9-11-11-11 new sts (= back of neck) and work right front piece + sleeve on to circular needle = 51-53-55-57-59-61 sts. Continue back and forth until piece measures 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from marker mid on top of shoulder. On next row cast off the first and last 10-10-9-8-7-6 sts, cut the yarn. Work over the remaining 31-33-37-41-45-49 sts. When piece measures approx. 67-69-71-73-75-77 cm, K 2 rows over all sts, then loosely cast off.

Slip the 22 sts from stitch holder on right front piece back on needle. Cast on 1 new st towards the shoulder = 23 sts. K over all sts with short rows as follows:
Row 1 and 2: Beg mid front - K 10, turn and K back.
Row 3 and 4: K all sts, turn and K back.
Repeat these 4 rows until collar measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm on the inner edge towards the shoulder, cast off. Work the same way over sts from stitch holder on left front piece. Sew collar parts tog edge to edge mid back, and sew collar to neck inside edge st.

Cast on 13 sts on circular needle size 15 mm with 1 strand Andes and 1 strand Fabel. Work in stocking st back and forth with 1 st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - in each side until piece measures approx. 18 cm, loosely cast off from RS.

Sew sleeve and side seam in one, sew tog edge to edge in front loop of outermost st to avoid a chunky seam. Sew on pockets approx. 5 cm from bottom edge and 18 cm in from mid front, sew in front loop of sts in garter st in each side.
