B and C; however, very little yarn will be left over so it is vital that you match stitch and row gauge exactly. We have allowed 1 extra skein in the quantities to cover any change in gauge.

Gauge: 22 sts & 36 rounds = 10 cm / 4” over Chart B on
4 mm needles after blocking.

Needles: 3 mm / US 21⁄2 circular needle, 80-100 cm / 32-40” length AND knitting needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
4 mm / US 6 circular needle, 80-100 cm / 32-40” length AND knitting needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 4 stitch markers, stitch holders or scrap yarn

Notes: Diesis is worked in the round from the top down. The back neck is raised with short rows worked into the stitch pattern. Once the yoke is complete, stitches are provisionally cast on at the underarms and the body and sleeves are split. Increases in the body section create a flared shape and ensure the hem sits smoothly. Sleeves are worked downward with decreases and extra long contrasting cuffs.
