INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 116 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 28) = 4.1.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch; on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1). The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs to leave holes.


INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Start 6 stitches before the marker thread in the side, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, continue A.3 (the marker thread sits in the middle of A.3), knit 2 and make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before A.3, knit 2 together, knit A.3 (= 8 stitches), slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle and from top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 116-120-124-132-136-144 stitches with short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and BabyAlpaca Silk. Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and work 6 rounds stockinette stitch for lining. Then work the next round as follows: * Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over *, work from *-* to end of round. You have now worked a folding edge.
Work 5 rounds stockinette stitch and increase AT THE SAME TIME 28-32-36-28-32-32 stitches evenly on the last round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 144-152-160-160-168-176 stitches. Then work the yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work A.1 in the round (= 18-19-20-20-21-22 repeats of 8 stitches). Continue the pattern like this and increase as shown in the diagram. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.1 has been completed there are 216-228-240-280-294-308 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 15-15-15-17-17-17 cm / 5 7/8"-5 7/8"-5 7/8"-6 5/8"-6 5/8"-6 5/8" from the folding edge in the neck. Knit 1 round where you increase 24-28-32-24-34-32 stitches evenly on round = 240-256-272-304-328-340 stitches.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches: The first marker thread is inserted after the first 36-38-40-46-51-55 stitches (= ½ back piece), 2nd marker thread after the next 48-52-56-60-62-60 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker thread after the next 72-76-80-92-102-110 stitches (= front piece) and the 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 48-52-56-60-62-60 stitches (= sleeve). There are now 36-38-40-46-51-55 stitches after the last marker thread for half the back piece.
Continue with stockinette stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase to RAGLAN – see description above (= 8 stitches increased). Continue the increase to raglan every 2nd round until you have increased a total of 10-13-15-15-16-18 times on each side of the 4 marker threads = 320-360-392-424-456-484 stitches.
Continue working without increasing to raglan, but to avoid stopping the line of holes along each raglan line, work A.2 in each transition between body and sleeves (the marker thread sits in the middle of A.2).
When the piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm / 8 5/8"-9 3/8"-10 ¼"-11"-11 ¾"-12 ½" work the next round as follows: Work 46-51-55-61-67-73 stitches stockinette stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 68-78-86-90-94-96 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 92-102-110-122-134-146 stitches stockinette stitch (= front piece), place the next 68-78-86-90-94-96 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the last 46-51-55-61-67-73 stitches in stockinette stitch (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! 

BODY:
= 200-220-240-264-292-320 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeves in each side. Continue with stockinette stitch, in addition work A.3 over the middle 8 stitches in each side (the marker thread sits in the middle of A.3).
When the piece measures 5-5-5-3-3-3 cm / 1 7/8"-1 7/8"-1 7/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" from the separation, increase 1 stitch on each side of A.3 in each side – read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 5 cm / 2'' a total of 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in each side = 220-240-260-288-316-344 stitches. When the piece measures 31 cm from the separation, work 3 ridges in the round over all stitches. Then bind off with knit, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after approx. every 8th stitch at the same time as you bind off (the yarn overs are bind off as normal stitches). The sweater measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the thread on one side of the piece on double pointed needles or short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and in addition knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches mid under sleeve = 76-86-96-100-106-110 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve. Work A.3 over the middle 8 stitches under the sleeve, the other stitches are worked in stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 2-2-2-1-1-1 cm / ¾"-¾"-¾"-3/8"-3/8"-3/8" from the separation, decrease 1 stitch on each side of A.3 – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this a total of 8-11-15-16-17-17 times in Size S: Every 6th round, in Size M: Every 4th round, in Size L: Alternately every 2nd and 3rd round and in Sizes XL + XXL + XXXL: Every 2nd round = 60-64-66-68-72-76 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 17-16-14-12-11-11 cm / 6 5/8"-6 ¼"-5 ½"-4 5/8"-4 ¼"-4 ¼" from the separation, but adjust so that the decreases mid under sleeve have been completed (NOTE: shorter lengths in larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke).
On the next round increase 10-6-4-12-8-4 stitches evenly on round = 70-70-70-80-80-80 stitches. Then work A.4 in the round (= 7-7-7-8-8-8 repeats of 10 stitches). When A.4 has been completed, there are 84-84-84-96-96-96 stitches on the needle. Work 6 rounds stockinette stitch. The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over *, work from *-* to end of round (= folding edge). Work 6 rounds stockinette stitch and bind off with knit, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch at the same time as you bind off (the yarn overs are bind off as normal stitches). Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the lining on the neck in towards the wrong side and sew down neatly with small loose stitches. Do the same at the bottom of both sleeves

How nice to see a real woman for a change! Yes, some patterns are only suited to the very young - but many are not.
