----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 260-276-300-324-340-364 sts (includes 6 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Lima. Work 3 RIDGES in garter st - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work next row from RS as follows:
6 band sts in garter st, work A.2 (= 26-26-29-29-31-31 sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), 30-34-37-43-45-51 sts in stockinette st, insert 1 marker (= side), 30-34-37-43-45-51 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 26-26-29-29-31-31 sts), A.3 (= 26-26-29-29-31-31 sts), A.1 (= 6 sts), 30-34-37-43-45-51 sts in stockinette st, insert 1 marker (= side), 30-34-37-43-45-51 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.3 (= 26-26-29-29-31-31 sts) and 6 band sts in garter st. Continue the pattern like this. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

DECREASE IN THE SIDES:
When piece measures 8 cm / 3'', dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 8 cm / 3'' 3 more times (= 4 dec in total on each side of both markers).

DECREASE IN TEXTURED PATTERN:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 10 cm / 4'' – adjust so that next row is a row with inc and dec in A.2/A.3 - dec 1 st outside A.1 on front and back piece, i.e. in stockinette st section after/before A.1 – READ DECREASE TIP.
Dec in addition 1 extra st in A.2 and A.3 on front and back piece so that section with diagonal stripes gradually becomes smaller. Dec 1 st in A.2 by working the last 2 sts before dec the same way as dec, i.e. K 2 tog. Dec 1 st in A.3 by working the next 2 sts after dec the same way as dec, i.e. slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 8 sts dec in total on row).
Repeat these dec every 8th row 8-8-8-8-7-7 more times (= 9-9-9-9-8-8 dec in total) – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – see explanation above.
After all dec are done, 172-188-212-236-260-284 sts remain on needle. Continue the pattern as before – READ THE REST OF PATTERN BEFORE CONTINUING.

INCREASE IN TEXTURED PATTERN:
When piece measures approx. 38 cm / 15'' – adjust so that next row is with inc and dec in A.2/A.3 - inc 1 extra st in A.2 and A.3 so that section with diagonal stripes becomes larger. Inc 1 st in A.2 by working 2 sts in st after inc and inc 1 st in A.3 by working 2 sts in st before inc (= 4 sts inc on row). Repeat inc every 4th row 5 more times (= 6 times in total) and then every 8th row 6-6-6-6-5-5 times.

SHAWL COLLAR:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'' (i.e. 1 cm / 3/8'' after last buttonhole on right band), inc 1 st in each side for shawl collar – READ INCREASE TIP.
Work next row as follows from RS: Work 1 ridge (i.e. 2 rows K) back and forth over the outermost 7 sts on row (i.e. band + 1 inc st - the other sts on row are not worked), turn piece and work 1 row from RS as before over all sts, turn piece and work 1 ridge back and forth over the outermost 7 sts, turn and work back as before over all sts again (this is done so that the neckline folds nicely when neck dec beg – see explanation below).
Then work back and forth over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME continue inc for shawl collar inside outermost st in each side on every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 5-5-6-6-7-7 more times (= 6-6-7-7-8-8 times in total) and then every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) 14-14-15-15-16-16 times in total = 20-20-22-22-24-24 sts inc for collar and 26-26-28-28-30-30 sts in garter st in total.

NECKLINE:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm / 16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''-18'', dec 1 st for neck inside sts in garter st on band + inc sts for collar - READ DECREASE TIP.
Repeat dec every other row 3 more times (= 4 times in total) and then every 4th row 7-7-7-9-9-9 times - NOTE: When dec for neck, the inc is moved into pattern in A.2/A.3 on front piece after dec for neck so that inc is further in on piece.

ARMHOLES:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 51-52-53-54-55-56 cm / 20''-20½''-21''-21¼''-21 5/8''-22'', bind off 4 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. Bind off 2 sts on both sides of both markers) and finish each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
Continue pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
ADJUSTING DIAGONAL LINES:
When piece measures 64-64-64-64-62-62 cm / 25 1/4"-25 1/4"-25 1/4"-25 1/4"-24 3/8"-24 3/8" (all inc in A.2/A.3 should now be done), dec and inc in A.2 and A.3 every 8th row instead of every 4th row so that the slanting of the lines is gradually weaker.
This is done 3-3-3-3-4-4 times in total, then work A.2/A.3 back and forth over the middle 58-58-64-64-68-68 sts without inc and dec (work the other sts as before).
When piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'', bind off the middle 20-20-20-24-24-24 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 39-43-49-53-58-64 sts remain on the shoulder. Continue until piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm / 27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾''-31½" and bind off. Repeat on the other shoulder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Continue pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st towards armhole AT THE SAME TIME inc for shawl collar and dec for neckline as before.

ADJUSTING DIAGONAL LINES:
When piece measures 64-64-64-64-62-62 cm / 25 1/4"-25 1/4"-25 1/4"-25 1/4"-24 3/8"-24 3/8" (all inc in A.2 should now be done), dec and inc in A.2 every 8th row instead of every 4th row as on back piece so that the slanting of the lines is gradually weaker.
This is done 3-3-3-3-4-4 times in total, then work A.2 back and forth without inc and dec (work the other sts as before).
After all inc and dec, there are 65-69-77-81-88-94 sts on needle.
When piece measures approx. 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm / 27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾''-31½", adjust so that next row is worked from WS, bind off the first 39-43-49-53-58-64 sts on shoulder, K the rest of row over the last 26-26-28-28-30-30 sts.

COLLAR:
Beg mid front and work in garter st back and forth over the remaining sts for collar as follows: * 2 rows over all sts, 2 rows over only the outermost 18-18-20-20-22-22 sts (towards mid front) *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx. 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm / 2¾''-2¾''-2¾''-3 1/8''- 3 1/8''- 3 1/8'' on the most narrow part, bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Continue as on right front piece but reversed (continue with A.3 instead of A.2 - work the other sts as before).
bind off shoulder sts from RS (instead of WS).

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 46-48-50-52-54-56 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Lima and work 3 RIDGES in garter st - see explanation above. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and work in stockinette st.
When piece measures 7-10-8-13-9-12 cm / 2 3/4"-4"-3 1/8"-5 1/8"-3½"-4 3/4" inc 2 sts mid under sleeve. Repeat inc every 2½-2-2-1½-1½-1 cm / 7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-½"-½"-1/4" 16-17-18-19-22-26 more times (= 17-18-19-20-23-27 inc in total) = 80-84-88-92-100-110 sts.
When piece measures 49-48-47-45-44-42 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-18½"-17 3/4"-17 1/4"-16½", insert 1 marker mid under sleeve.
