Gauge: 24 sts x 32 rows on larger needles in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm

Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.
Garter st, when knitting in the round: *Rnd 1, knit. Rnd 2, purl.* Repeat from * - *.

Rib: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from * - *.

Pattern: See charts. The pattern is seen from the right side and is knit entirely in stockinette st.

Body: Cast on 228-248-272 sts on smaller circular needles with natural white Alpaca; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Rib - see instructions above - for 6-6-6 cm. Change to larger circular needles, knit 1 row reverse stockinette st then knit stockinette st over all sts - at the same time for Size M only: inc 2 sts evenly distributed on the row = 228-250-272 sts. When the piece measures 31-33-35 cm knit the next row as follows: put 8-8-8 sts on a st holder for armhole, 106-117-128 sts for the front, put 8-8-8 sts on a st holder for armhole, 106-117-128 sts for the back. Put aside and knit sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 60-60-60 sts on smaller double-pointed needles with natural white Alpaca; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Rib for 6-6-6 cm. Change to larger double pointed needles, P 1 right side row, then K 1 row, increasing 10-10-10 sts evenly distributed on the row = 70-70-70 sts. Knit Pattern 2 one time, then continue with stockinette st and natural white Alpaca. After Pattern 2 inc 1 st each side of marker 15-15-15 times:
Size S: Alternately every 6th and 7th rows.
Sizes M and L: every 7 rows
= 100-100-100 sts. When the piece measures 47-48-49 cm put 4 sts each side of marker on a st holder = 92-92-92 sts on needles.

Body: Put in the sleeves on the same circular needles as Body where 8 sts have been place on st holders for armhole = 396-418-440 sts. Knit Pattern 1 (note that the decs are shown on the chart – there are 36-38-40 sts decreased per dec row = 252-266-280 sts total decreased). After the last dec row 144-152-160 sts remain on the needles. On the next row, change to smaller double-pointed needles and at the same time dec 24-28-32 sts evenly distributed on the row = 120-124-128 sts. Knit Rib with natural white for approx. 8 cm(or to desired length), bind off in Rib.

Assembly: Weave together sts from st holders to close opening at underarm – use Kitchener st.
