GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

Worked in a circle from mid back in the round.

Cast on 8 sts with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 sts on per needle). Work according to A.1 (= 8 repetitions of A.1 in width). When the first 27 rounds in A.1 have been worked, displace beg of round 1 st towards the left first on every other round, then every 4th round – i.e. beg of round is always before first YO in diagram so make it less visible. Beg of round at the end will be in the middle of first repetition of A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Switch to circular needle when needed. When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, there are 208 sts on round, piece measures approx. 34 cm / 13½'' in diameter. Insert 8 markers in piece, insert 1st marker in 1st st on round, then insert 7 markers in sts with 25 sts apart, markers are directly over tip on each leaf. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc 1 st on each side of markers. Inc with 1 YO on each side of sts with marker – on next round P YO twisted to avoid holes = 16 inc sts per round. Repeat inc every other round 1-2-3 more times (= 32-48-64 inc sts in total) = 240-256-272 sts.

On next round K, AT THE SAME TIME bind off all sts between 2nd and 3rd marker and 7th and 8th marker for armholes (= bind off 30-32-34 sts in each side). P next round, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 30-32-34 new sts over the bind off sts between 2nd and 3rd marker and 7th and 8th marker. When all sts are cast on again, there are 240-256-272 sts on needle.

Then work as follows: Work A.2 over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of sts with marker on every round with star (= 16 sts per inc round) = 384-400-416 sts. Piece measures approx. 66-68-70 cm / 26"-26 3/4"-27½" in diameter.

Then work as follows: Keep sts between 2nd and 4th marker on needle, slip the remaining sts on a stitch holder = 96-100-104 sts on needle. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - back and forth over these sts, AT THE SAME TIME at the end of every row slip the last 2 sts on stitch holder (do not work them, turn). NOTE: Continue with inc on each side of the 3rd marker every 4th row. Continue until 44 sts remain on needle. Slip the last 44 sts on stitch holder.

Slip sts between 6th and 8th marker on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10, and work the same way in this side. Then K all sts from RS back onto circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 - pick up and twist yarn between every time st on stitch holder in each side is slipped on needle (i.e. between every other st to avoid holes in transition) = approx. 512-540-568 sts. Work 4 ridges in garter st, bind off.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 32-32-40 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work A.3 1 time vertically (= 4-4-5 repetitions in width), on last round inc 1 st = 33-33-41 sts. Insert 1 marker in first st at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Then work in stockinette st but on every other round work as follows: Beg 2 sts before st with marker: K 2 tog, 1 YO, st with marker, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, work in stockinette st over the remaining sts. On next round K YO to make hole, there should be an eyelet row upwards mid under sleeve, but no of sts remain the same. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', beg inc mid under sleeve, work YOs and stockinette st as before but do NOT dec on each side of YOs = 2 sts inc. Repeat inc this way every 3 cm / 1'' 13-14-14 more times = 61-63-71 sts. Work until piece measures 54-55-56 cm / 21 1/4"-21½"-22", bind off. Make another sleeve.

Sew in sleeves.
