JACKET

SHORTENED ROWS, BODY PIECE:
To make jacket wider at the bottom work shortened rows as follows:
* Work 20-22-24 (26-28) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work 46-50-57 (65-70) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work 64-70-80 (90-98) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work 46-50-57 (65-70) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work 20-22-24 (26-28), turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work all 70-76-86 (96-104) sts, turn piece and work return row *. Repeat from *-*
1 repeat of the above = 12 rows on sts at the bottom and 2 rows on sts at the top.

SHORTENED ROWS, SLEEVES:
* Work 41-47-51 (63-72) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work 59-67-74 (88-100) sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row, work all 65-73-80 (94-106) sts, turn piece and work return row *. Repeat from *-*.
1 repeat of the above = 6 rows on sts at the bottom and 2 rows on sts at the top.

JACKET
Worked from side to side in garter st, beg on left front piece, then work sleeve, back piece, the other sleeve and right front piece.

BODY PIECE:
LOOSELY cast on 70-76-86 (96-104) sts on needle size 2.5 mm [US 1] with Fabel. Work 10 rows garter st back and forth on needle = front band (first row = RS, this row beg at the bottom of jacket).
Now work shortened rows – SEE ABOVE FOR BODY PIECE.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When piece measures approx 13½-15-17 (18-19½) cm [5¼”-6”-6¾” (7”-7¾”)] (measured mid piece from cast on row to the side) slip the first 41-45-52 (60-65) sts (towards bottom) on a stitch holder (= the side). Cut the thread and now beg again by casting on 36-42-46 (58-67) new sts at the beg of row (for sleeve) = 65-73-80 (94-106) sts on row. Work remaining sts on row, turn piece and work return row. Continue with shortened rows – SEE ABOVE FOR SLEEVES.
When piece measures 16-17-18 (18-20) cm [6¼”-6¾”-7” (7”-8”)] from where new sts were cast on for sleeve (measured where widest) bind off the first 36-42-46 (58-67) sts on next row from RS, work remaining sts on row, turn piece and work return row and now work the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-76-86 (96-104) sts. Insert a marker in the middle st on row and continue with shortened rows – SEE ABOVE FOR BODY PIECE.
When piece measures 23-26-30 (32-35) cm [9”-10¼”-11¾” (12½”-13¾”)] (measured mid piece from marker) slip the first 41-45-52 (60-65) sts (towards bottom) on a stitch holder (= the other side).
Cut the thread and beg again by casting on 36-42-46 (58-67) new sts at the beg of row (for sleeve) = 65-73-80 (94-106) sts on row. Work remaining sts on row and work return row. Continue with shortened rows – SEE ABOVE FOR SLEEVE – until sleeve measures the same as the first sleeve.
On next row from RS bind off the first 36-42-46 (58-67) sts and work remaining sts on row. Turn piece and work return row and now work the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-76-86 (96-104) sts. Continue with shortened rows – SEE ABOVE FOR BODY PIECE.
When right front piece measure the same as left front piece (less the 10 rows on front band) work front band as follows (first row = RS): 4 rows on all sts, on next row bind off for 5 buttonholes as follows: work 14-16-18 (20-24) sts, bind off 2 sts, * work 11-12-14 (16-17) sts, bind off 2 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, work the last 2 sts.
Turn piece and work return row, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 2 new sts over each buttonhole. Work 4 rows on all sts, bind off LOOSELY.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew under arm seams, edge to edge, and sew on buttons.
----------------------------------------------------------
HAT

INCREASING TIP:
Make all inc from RS.
Inc 1 st before and after st with marker by making 1 YO. Work YO into back of loop on return row to avoid a hole.

DECREASING TIP:
Make all dec from RS.
Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker. Beg 1 st before st with marker. Slip 1 st on cable needle behind piece, slip 1 st as if to K (= st with marker), K tog next st and st on cable needle, psso.
------------------------------------------------------------
HAT:
Worked back and forth on needle in garter st.
Cast on 119-127-135 (139-145) sts on needle size 2.5 mm [US 1] with Fabel and work 6 rows garter st (first row = RS).
Insert 7 markers in piece from RS as follows:
M-1 in the first st on row
M-2 in st 22-24-26 (28-31)
M-3 in st 43-47-51 (55-61)
M-4 in st 60-64-68 (70-73)
M-5 in st 77-81-85 (85-85)
M-6 in st 98-104-110 (112-115)
M-7 in the last st on row.
Continue in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME beg inc and dec – SEE INCREASING and DECREASING TIP!
Inc 1 st after M-1 on every other row,
dec 1 st on each side of M.2 on every other row,
inc 1 st before M-3 on every other row,
inc 1 st after M-3 on every 4th row,
dec 1 st on each side of M.4 on every 4th row,
inc 1 st before M-5 on every 4th row,
inc 1 st after M-5 on every other row,
dec 1 st on each side of M-6 on every other row,
inc 1 st before M-7 on every other row.
When piece measures 13-15-16 (18-19) cm [5 1/8”-6”-6¼” (7”-7½”)] (measured from lowest point by M-2 or M-6) work next row as follows from RS: * K1, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* AT THE SAME TIME as binding off.

ASSEMBLY:
Back of hat = bind off row, i.e. 2 whole points and 2 half points. The middle of the 3 whole points on the other side of piece = cast on row, mid front.
Sew hat tog, edge to edge, along bind off row as follows: sew first half point to first whole point. Sew the other side of first whole point to first half of the second whole point. Sew the other side of the second whole point to the last half point. Sew hat tog mid back, edge to edge, to avoid a chunky seam.

TIE STRINGS:
Cast on 4 sts on needle size 4 mm [US 6] with Fabel and work a tube as follows:
* K1, place yarn in front of piece (towards you), slip 1 st as if to P, place yarn behind piece again *, repeat from *-* across row and repeat on all rows.
Bind off when string measures approx 20-22-24 (26-28) cm [8”-8¾”-9½” (10¼”-11”)].
Make 2 and sew to hat each side at bottom of point.
----------------------------------------------------------
SOCKS:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.

HEEL DECREASES:
ROW 1 (= RS): work row until 6-7-7 (7-8) sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece,
ROW 2 (= WS): work row until 6-7-7 (7-8) sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece,
ROW 3 (= RS): work row until 5-6-6 (6-7) sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece,
ROW 4 (= WS): work row until 5-6-6 (6-7) sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st between each dec until there are 8-10-10 (10-12) sts on row.

DECREASING TIP-1:
Dec as follows before rib: K2 tog.
Dec as follows after rib: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.

DECREASING TIP-2:
Dec as follows before marker: K2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.
----------------------------------------------------------
SOCK:
Cast on 44-48-48 (52-56) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm [US 1] with Fabel. Work 7-8-9 (10-11) cm [2 ¾”-3 1/8”-3½” (4”-4 3/8”)] rib, K2/P2. Now keep the first 18-22-22 (22-26) sts on needle for heel (slip the remaining 26-26-26 (30-30) sts on a stitch holder = upper foot). Work stockinette st back and forth on needle on heel sts for 3-3½-4 (4-4½) cm [1 1/8”-1¼”-1½” (1½”-1¾”)] – insert a marker. Now work heel decreases – SEE ABOVE – and then pick up 8-9-10 (11-12) sts on each side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 50-54-56 (62-66) sts. Continue in rib on the 26-26-26 (30-30) sts on upper foot and stockinette st on remaining sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on either side of rib – SEE DECREASING TIP-1 on every other round a total of 5-7-6 (7-9) times = 40-40-44 (48-48) sts. Work K over K and P over P until sock measures 7-8-9 (10-12) cm [2¾”-3 1/8”-3½” (4”-4¾”)] from marker on heel (3-3-3 (4-4) cm [1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8” (1½”-1½”)] remain). Insert 1 marker each side with 20-20-22 (24-24) sts on upper foot and 20-20-22 (24-24) sts under foot. Continue in stockinette st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of both markers –SEE DECREASING TIP-2 – on every other round 3 times and then on every round 5-5-6 (7-7) times = 8 sts. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Sock measures approx 10-11-12 (14-16) cm [4’’-4 3/8’’-4¾’’ (5½’’-6¼’’)].
