Honeycomb pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 14 + 0 (6) 0 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated. Make WS rows sts as they face. Repeat the pattern for sizes S and L. For size M, start with 1 selvage st and sts before arrow A, pattern repeat, finish with sts before arrow B and 1 selvage st. Make 1st-26th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-26th rows.
Stitches control: 14,5 sts x 26,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 72 (78) 86 sts with Alta Moda Alpaca yarn in criss-cross method and make 4 cm of 1 x 1 rib for placket. Continue work with honeycomb pattern. In 54,5 cm = 144 rows from placket, leave all sts, the central 28 (30) 32 sts form neck-hole, the outer 22 (24) 27 sts shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but in 50,5 cm = 134 rows from placket, bind off the central 28 (30) 32 sts and finish both sides separately. At the height of back, bind off the rest 22 (24) 27 sts of shoulder.
Cast on 44 sts with Alta moda yarn in criss-cross method and make 4 cm of 1 x 1 rib for placket. Continue work with honeycomb pattern, repeat the pattern between selvage sts. In 16,5 cm = 44 rows from placket, increase 1 x 1 st for sleeve chamfers, then, bind off 4 x 1 st in every 12th row (7 x 1 st in every 6th and 8th rows by turn) 10 x 1 st in every 4th and 6th rows by turn = 54 (60) 66 sts. In 37 cm = 98 rows from placket, bind off all sts.
