JACKET:
Worked in one piece. Beg at bottom of front piece, cast on sts for sleeves and finish at bottom of back piece. To fit in all sts work jacket back and forth on circular needle.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 18-20-21 (23-25) sts (includes 1 edge st at side and 3 front band sts towards mid front) on needle size 8 mm [US 11] with Eskimo. Work 6 rows garter st – SEE ABOVE. Continue in stockinette st with 3 garter sts on front band towards mid front.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When piece measures 13-14-17 (20-22) cm [5 1/8”-5½”-6¾” (8”-8¾”)] work 2 rows garter st on all sts and now continue in moss st – SEE ABOVE – with front band in garter st as before. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-17-20 (23-25) cm [6¼”-6¾”-8” (9”-9¾”)] cast on new sts at side for sleeve. Cast on at the end of every row towards the side: 4 sts 1-1-2 (2-3) times, 5 sts 1-1-1 (1-1) time and 8-9-8 (12-12) sts 1 time = 35-38-42 (48-54) sts. Incorporate inc sts in moss st as you go along. NOTE! After the last inc work 3 sts at side in garter st (= sleeve edge). When piece measures 22-24-28 (31-34) cm [8¾”-9½”-11” (12¼”-13 3/8”)] work 2 rows garter st on 9-10-10 (11-11) sts towards mid front (including the 3 front band sts) - work remaining sts as before. On next row from mid front bind off the first 6-7-7 (8-8) sts for neck and now bind off to shape the neckline on every other row – SEE DECREASING TIP: 1 st 2 times = 27-29-33 (38-44) sts left on shoulder/sleeve.
Continue in moss st with 3 garter sts each side (= neckline and sleeve edge). When piece measures 27-29-33 (37-40) cm
[10 5/8”-11 3/8”-13” (14½”-15¾”)] insert a marker (= mid shoulder). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
When piece measures 1 cm [3/8’’] inc 1 st inside the 3 garter sts on neckline on next row from RS – SEE INCREASING TIP = 28-30-34 (39-45) sts. Work return row and now slip sts on a stitch holder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work like left front piece, but mirrored. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES – SEE ABOVE.

BACK PIECE:
Work sts from left front piece in on needle, cast on 8-10-10 (12-12) new sts for neckline on back piece and work sts from right front piece in on needle = 64-70-78 (90-102) sts.
Continue as follows: 3 garter sts, 22-24-28 (33-39) moss sts, 14-16-16 (18-18) garter sts (= neckline), 22-24-28 (33-39) moss sts, 3 garter sts.
After 6 rows garter st on neckline continue in moss st on these sts. When piece measures 8-8-9 (9-9) cm [3 1/8”-3 1/8”-3½” (3½”-3½”)] loosely bind off sleeve sts. Bind off as follows each side at the beg of every row: 8-9-8 (12-12) sts 1 time, 5 sts 1-1-1 (1-1) time and 4 sts 1-1-2 (2-3) times = 30-34-36 (40-44) sts. When piece measures approx 14-15-16 (17-18) cm [5½”-6”-6¼” (6¾”-7”)] (make sure to have the same amount of rows in moss st as on front piece) work 2 rows garter st on all sts. Now continue in stockinette st. When piece measures approx 24-26-30 (34-37) cm [9½”-10¼”-11¾” (13 3/8”-14½”)] (adjust to front piece) work 6 rows garter st on all sts. Bind off loosely.
