Garter st, back and forth on needle: K all rows

Knitting tip-1: To avoid thread ends you may work each diamond in the first line of diamonds with a separate ball and let this follow the piece for the following lines instead of cutting the thread.

Knitting tip-2: Always pick up sts from RS.
Increasing tip: Inc inside 1 front band st towards mid front by making 1 yo. Work yo into back of st on return row to avoid a hole. Work inc sts in garter st.

Half domino diamond (vertical): Work 6 front band sts in garter st throughout.
Row 1 (= WS): K
Row 2 (= RS): K row until 8 sts (including front band sts) left on row, K2 tog, work 6 front band sts. Mirror this on the other side of jacket, i.e. dec at beg of row. Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 1 st towards front band on every other row until 1 st + 6 front band sts left on row. Cut the thread and put 6 front band sts on a thread.

Whole domino diamond : Insert a Marking Thread (MT) in the middle st.
Row 1 (= WS): K
Row 2 (= RS): K row until 1 st before MT, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K to the end of row. Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 2 sts in the middle of diamond on every other row until 1 st left on row. Cut the thread and pull through st.

Half domino diamond (horizontal): Like whole diamond, but in addition to dec in the middle of diamond, put the last st on a thread at the end of every row until 4-3-4-4-4 sts left on row. Continue as follows:
Size S + L + XL/XXL + XXL/XXXL:
4 sts left on row.
Work next row (= RS) as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Put the last st on row on thread at side (= 6-7-8-9 sts on thread each side). Cut the thread and pull through remaining st on needle.
Size M:
3 sts left on row (6 sts on thread each side).
K 1 row on 3 sts from WS. Work next row as follows from RS: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Cut the thread and pull through remaining st on needle.

Buttonholes: Make buttonholes on right front piece. 1 buttonhole = cast off third st from mid front, cast on 1 new st on return row.
Make buttonholes when piece measures:
Size S: 23, 31 and 39 cm.
Size M: 26, 34 and 42 cm.
Size L: 29, 37 and 45 cm.
Size XL/XXL: 24, 32, 40 and 48 cm.
