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.

RAGLAN:
On sleeves inc for raglan with YO K twisted on next round, they should not make holes. Inc as follows:
Inc with 1 YO after 1st and 3rd marker and before 2nd and 4th marker as follows:
Inc every round 0-2-4-0-0-0 times in total.
Inc every other round 22-23-23-27-24-26 times in total.
Inc every 4th round, 0-0-0-0-2-2 times in total (= 22-25-27-27-26-28 times in total) = 48-54-60-60-62-66 sts in total on each sleeve.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.8. See diagram for correct size.

DECREASE TIP-1:
When working in the round, dec as follows:
Dec as follows at each marker: Work until 3-3-3-5-6-6 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), 2-2-2-6-8-8 sts in garter st (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 1 st dec).
When working back and forth, dec as follows:
All dec are done from RS.
Work 3-3-3-3-4-4 sts in garter st, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 1 st dec), work pattern as before until 5-5-5-5-6-6 sts remain, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), finish with 3-3-3-3-4-4 sts in garter st.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeve):
Dec as follows at marker: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), K 2 (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 1 st dec).

BIND-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½-1 size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

TUNIC:
Worked in the round, top down. Cast on 80-84-86-92-96-102 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 22-18-20-22-26-28 sts evenly = 102-102-106-114-122-130 sts. On next round work pattern and inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above, as follows: Work A.1a over the first 21-21-21-23-23-25 sts, A.2a over next st, P 1, K 1 (= mid back), P 1, A.3a over next st, A.4a over the next 21-21-21-23-23-25 sts (= back piece), insert 1st marker, K 4-4-6-6-10-10, insert 2nd marker (= sleeve), A.1a over the next 21-21-21-23-23-25 sts, A.2a over next st, P 1, K 1 (= mid front), P 1, A.3a over next st, A.4a over the next 21-21-21-23-23-25 sts (= front piece), insert 3rd marker, K 4-4-6-6-10-10, insert 4th marker (= sleeve). Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1a and A.4a have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.1b and A.4b vertically.
When A.2a and A.3a have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 298-318-362-378-402-430 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 22-24-25-27-28-30 cm / 8 3/4"-9½"-9 3/4"-10½"-11"-11 3/4" on the shortest part of piece.

Work next round as follows: Continue with A.1b over the first 22-22-22-24-24-26 sts as before, A.2b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, 1 YO, P 1, K 1 (= mid back), P 1, 1 YO, A.3b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, A.4b over the next 22-22-22-24-24-26 sts, slip the next 48-54-60-60-62-66 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-10-12-12 sts under sleeve, insert 1 marker in the middle of the new sts (= side marker), A.1b over the next 22-22-22-24-24-26 as before, A.2b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, 1 YO, P 1, K 1 (= mid front), P 1, 1 YO, A.3b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, A.4b over the next 22-22-22-24-24-26 sts, slip the next 48-54-60-60-62-66 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-10-12-12 sts under sleeve, insert 1 marker in the middle of the new sts (= side marker) = 218-226-258-282-306-326 sts.

Work 1 round pattern, K YOs twisted mid front and mid back, they should not make holes.

Work next round as follows: Continue with * A.1b over the first 22-22-22-24-24-26 sts as before, A.2b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, A.5a over next st (inc 1 st in A.5a), P 1, K 1 (= mid back/front), P 1, A.6a over next st (inc 1 st in A.6a), A.3b over the next 27-29-37-39-44-47 sts, A.4b over the next 22-22-22-24-24-26 sts as before, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), 2-2-2-6-8-8 sts in garter st, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 1 st dec) *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total. On this round inc 2 sts mid front and mid back and dec 2 sts in each side of piece, i.e. no of sts is the same. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.

Continue in the round as follows:
Round/row 1: Work 1 round/row with pattern as before (= 1 round/row without YO in diagram).
Round/row 2: Work pattern as before and dec 1 st on each side of each side marker – READ DECREASE TIP-1. On this round/row inc 2 sts mid front and mid back and dec 2 sts in each side of piece, i.e. no of sts is the same.
Round/row 3: Work as 1st round/row.
Round/row 4: Work as 2nd round/row.
Round/row 5: Work as 1st round/row.
Round/row 6: Work as 2nd round/row.
Round/row 7: Work as 1st round/row.
Round/row 8: Work pattern as before. On this round/row inc 2 sts mid front and mid back = 4 sts inc in total. Do not dec before and after side markers.

Repeat 1st to 8th round/row until finished measurements. When A.5a and A.6a have been worked 1 time vertically, work A.5b and A.6b vertically. Now work A.7 after A.5b and A.8 before A.6a mid front and mid back until finished measurements, i.e. work inc sts mid front/back in stockinette st. When piece measures 18 cm / 7'' from marker under sleeve, adjust so that last round is 1 round with YO, divide piece at side markers, work front piece and back piece separately until finished measurements.

FRONT PIECE:
(Beg at left side marker. First row = from WS). Work pattern and repeat 1st to 8th round/row as before, but work the outermost 3-3-3-3-4-4 sts in each side of piece in GARTER ST – see explanation above. When piece measures 30 cm / 11 3/4'' from marker under sleeve, switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges over all sts AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 2 sts over each cable. Bind off - READ BIND-OFF TIP.

BACK PIECE:
Work as front piece.

SLEEVE:
= 48-54-60-60-62-66 sts. Work sleeve in stockinette st in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and cast on 6-6-6-10-12-12 sts under sleeve = 54-60-66-70-74-78 sts. Work in stockinette st in the round and insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under sleeve (i.e. 3-3-3-5-6-6 new sts on each side of marker). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 st on each side of marker - READ DECREASE TIP-2. Dec like this approx. every 3½-2½-2-2-2-1½ cm / 1 1/4"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-½'' 9-12-14-15-16-17 times in total = 36-36-38-40-42-44 sts. When sleeve measures 43-42-42-41-41-40 cm / 17"-16½"-16½"-16"-16"-15 3/4'' (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke) switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges. Bind off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the opening under the sleeve.
