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

BODY:
Worked in the round in a circle from mid back.
Cast on 8 sts with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 7 mm. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid up towards neck. Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time K 2 sts in every st = 16 sts. Insert 8 markers in piece with 2 sts between every marker. Continue in stocking st – AT THE SAME TIME inc with 1 YO after every marker (= 8 YOs per round) on every other round - on next round K YO to make a small hole over every YO.
Switch to circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 19-21-22-23 cm from centre, work next round as follows from mid of neck (this must be 1 round without inc): Work 19-20-22-24 sts, cast off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole) work until 43-46-50-54 sts remain, cast off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole), work the last 19-20-22-24 sts on round.
On next round cast on 24-26-28-30 new sts over each armhole.
Continue to work and inc as before until piece measures approx. 48-53-58-63 cm from centre. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST – see explanation above, and continue to inc when working in garter st as before. LOOSELY cast off with K.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 34-36-37-39 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 7 mm with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk, work 3 ridges - then work in stocking st. When piece measures 10-13-14-10 cm, inc in each side: 1 st 6-7-9-10 times every 6.5-5.5-4.5-4.5 cm = 46-50-55-59 sts.
When piece measures 52-52-52-52 cm, cast off for sleeve cap at beg of every row: 3 sts 1 time in each side, then 1 st in each side until piece measures approx. 60-60-60-60 cm. Cast off the remaining sts.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the sleeve seams inside 1 edge st. Sew in the sleeves so that middle of sleeve cap is placed where armholes are the closest tog (i.e where 1st st was cast on for first armhole and where last st was cast off on second armhole) and sleeve seams are placed where the armholes are the furthest apart (i.e. in opposite side).
