Cast on a little loosely 87-87-105-105-119-119 stitches with circular needle size 5.5 mm and Alpaca Bouclé. Work 4 RIDGES – see description above. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A until there are 4 stitches left on the row, work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern like this.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. Repeat A.2 upwards until the piece measures approx. 18-18-18-20-18-20 cm – finish after 1 row from the wrong side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.3A until there are 4 stitches left on the row (= 5-5-7-7-7-7 repeats of 16-16-14-14-16-16 stitches), work A.3B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. When A.3 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 41-41-44-46-48-50 cm.
Work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches, in addition cast on 41-41-37-37-41-41 new stitches for the sleeves at the end of each of the 2 rows = 169-169-179-179-201-201 stitches.
Then work A.2 with 12 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side.
When the piece measures approx. 51-53-58-62-64-66 cm - finish after 1 knitted row from the wrong side, work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches.

When A.1 has been completed cast off as follows: Knit 2, * insert the left needle from the left towards the right through the 2 stitches on the right needle and knit them together, knit 1 *, work from *-* until there is 1 stitch left on the needle. Cut the strand and pull it through the last stitch. This method makes the cast off edge elastic. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

COLLAR:
Work collar in the same way as the right front piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge with 1 stitch in each stitch – make sure the seam is not tight.
Sew the collar together mid back (the seam should be on the wrong side when the collar is turned down). Sew the collar to the neck line at back of neck.
Sew the seam under the sleeves inside the cast on edge and continue the seam down the sides on front and back pieces - side seams are sewn in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that they are flat.
The design in the picture shows the seams worked all the way down, but you can have a split in each side if you wish, so stop when the split is the length you would like.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs, on the next row, purl the one yarn over and drop the other
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
