PATTERN:
See diagram M.1. The diagram shows the pattern from RS. See diagram for size!

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

GARTER ST (in the round):
*K 1 round and P 1 round*, repeat from *-*.
---------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The garment is knitted back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Work the jacket from mid front on left front piece and out towards the side, cast off for sleeve and continue until mid back before casting off. Then work right front piece the same way but reversed from mid front before the garment is sewn tog mid back. Finish by knitting and sewing in the sleeves.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 109-114-119-124-129-134 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Muskat. K 7 rows back and forth over all sts (1st row = from WS). Continue working next row from RS as follows: * K3, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO (= 2 YO) *, repeat from *-* and finish with K4. Then K 7 rows over all sts (K one YO, slip the other YO off the needle).
Work next row as follows (from RS):
8 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above -, P3, * K1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K1, P1, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K1, P3, K 55-60-65-66-71-76 sts while AT THE SAME TIME inc 14-16-17-16-15-16 sts evenly (inc 1 st by making 1 YO), P3, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K1, P1, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K1, P3 and 8 sts in garter st = 143-150-156-164-168-174 sts on needle.
Work next row as follows (from WS): 8 sts in garter st , K3, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K1, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K3, P 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts, K3, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K1, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K3 and 8 sts in garter st (NOTE! P YO twisted, i.e. in back loop of st instead of front to avoid holes).
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue to work as follows (from RS):
NOTE! See diagram for size!
8 sts in garter st, M.1, K 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts, M.1 and 8 sts in garter st.
AT THE SAME TIME make 1 hole in the 8 sts in garter st each side on every 14th row (every 7th garter st) as follows:
At beg of row (from RS): K3, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO, K3.
At end of row (from RS): K2, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO, K4.
On row after the dbl YO work 8 sts in garter st each side as before (K one YO, slip the other YO off the needle).
AT THE SAME TIME approx. every 4 cm work 2 extra rows back and forth only over the 8 sts in garter st each side (this is done so that the edge in garter st does not tighten the edge of piece).
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures approx. 41-46-51-55-63-70 cm - adjust so that next row is knitted from RS - slip the outermost 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts in the left side of piece (seen from RS) on a stitch holder. Work 6-6-6-10-10-10 rows as before (= approx. 2-2-2-4-4-4 cm) over the remaining 64-69-73-75-77-81 sts on needle. Cut the thread. Then slip these sts on a stitch holder. Slip the 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts from the first stitch holder back on circular needle size 4 mm and work armholes as follows from RS:
Size S + M + L: Cast off the first 40-42-44 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 39 sts on needle as before. Now insert a marker in the outermost st in the right side of needle (seen from RS - this marks where the sleeve cap is sewn into the armhole). Turn piece, work the 39 sts as before and then cast on 40-42-44 sts at the end of row. Cut the thread.
Size XL + XXL + XXXL: Cast off the first 23-24-25 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 66-67-68 sts on needle as before, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on the needle as before, turn piece. Cast off the first 23-24-25 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 43 sts on needle as before. Now insert a marker in the outermost st in the right side of needle (seen from RS - this marks where the sleeve cap is sewn into the armhole). Turn piece, work the 43 sts on needle as before and cast on 23-24-25 new sts at the end of row, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on the needle as before, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on needle as before and cast on 23-24-25 new sts at the end of row. Cut the thread.
ALL SIZES: Now slip the 64-69-73-75-77-81 sts from the stitch holder back on needle = 143-150-156-164-168-174 sts.
Continue to work as before over all sts (1st row = RS). AT THE SAME TIME increase for collar in the left side seen from RS. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside the outermost 2 sts. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in garter st. The holes in the 8 sts in garter st are made the same way and same place as before. Inc 1 st for collar every 2 cm a total of 7-8-8-9-9-10 times (= 15-16-16-17-17-18 sts in garter st) = 150-158-164-173-177-184 sts.
When piece measures 56-62-68-74-83-91 cm (measured in left side of piece seen from RS, piece measures approx. 57-63-69-76-85-93 cm in the right side), work 1 row from RS as before. Inc for collar should now be finished. Continue to work with short rows to add extra width mid back as follows (start at beg of row from WS = from neckline):
Work the first 68-70-71-76-76-78 sts on needle and then slip these sts on a stitch holder, work the remaining sts on the needle, turn piece and work back over all sts, turn piece, * work the first 7-7-6-7-6-7 sts on the needle, then slip sts on the same stitch holder and work the remaining sts on the needle, turn piece and work back over all sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 7-7-8-8-10-10 times. Then work the first 25-31-37-33-33-28 sts on needle, slip the sts on the same stitch holder and work the remaining 8 sts on needle. Slip all sts back on needle. Work next row as follows (from RS): 8 sts in garter st, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-16-17-16-15-16 sts evenly, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3 and work 15-16-16-17-17-18 sts in garter st = 116-122-127-133-138-144 sts. K 1 row from WS over all sts. The piece now measures approx. 57-63-69-75-84-92 cm in the left side (seen from RS) and 64-70-77-84-94-102 cm in the right side, measured in knitting direction! Cast off LOOSELY.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as left front piece but reversed, i.e all measurements that were done in the left side of piece (seen from RS) are now done in the right side of piece (seen from RS). When working the 6-6-6-10-10-10 rows under the sleeve adjust so that the first row is worked from WS (instead of RS) and the outermost 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts in the left side of piece (seen from WS, not RS) are slipped on a stitch holder. Continue to follow explanation for sleeve from WS (instead of RS). Finish by working the short rows mid back by starting at beg of row from RS (instead of beg of row from WS).

SLEEVE:
Cast on 54-54-54-60-60-60 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Muskat. K 1 round. Continue to work rib K3/P3. When rib measures 6-6-7-7-8-8 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-4-2-6-6-4 sts evenly = 48-50-52-54-54-56 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Continue to work in the round in stocking st. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 9-9-11-11-13-13 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (= 1 st each side of marker). Repeat inc every 4½-3½-2½-2-1½-1½ cm a total of 9-11-13-15-18-20 times = 66-72-78-84-90-96 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 49-48-47-46-45-44 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width). Now cast off 10 sts mid under sleeve (5 sts each side of marker) and continue to work back and forth in stocking st. Continue working while AT THE SAME TIME casting off 1 st at beg of every row a total of 11-12-13-15-16-18 times each side. Then cast off 5 sts at beg of the next 2 rows. The piece now measures approx. 58 cm in all sizes. Cast off the remaining sts.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the jacket tog mid back inside the cast off edge so that there are 2 garter st mid back. Sew in the sleeves - NOTE: Sew sleeve cap against the marker on the shoulder and sew the sleeve in each side along the opening of armhole marked with a star in the chart.
