STRIPE PATTERN:

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row P YO when working in stockinette st and K when working in garter st.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Piece is worked in parts. The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts.

LEFT SLEEVE + FRONT PIECE:
Beg at the edge of sleeve, cast on new sts for front piece and work until mid front.
Cast on 58-58-58-66-66-66 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Delight. Work 2 RIDGES in garter st - see explanation above (1st row = RS). Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, 2 sts in stockinette st, * 4 sts in garter st, 4 sts in stockinette st *, repeat from *-* 6-6-6-7-7-7 times in total and finish with 4 sts in garter st, 2 sts in stockinette st and 1 edge st in garter st.
Continue the pattern like this. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', inc 1 st inside 1 edge st in left side of piece (seen from RS – NOTE: Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in same st and work the inc sts in pattern). Repeat inc every 4th row 7 more times (= 8 inc in total under sleeve) = 66-66-66-74-74-74 sts.
When piece measures 15 cm / 6'', work in stockinette st while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row from RS casting on 21-21-20-12-10-7 new sts at the end of row = 87-87-86-86-84-81 sts. P 1 row back with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
Then work in stockinette st as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): 1 edge st in garter st, K until 1 st remains and work 2 sts in last st (= 1 st inc) = 88-88-87-87-85-82 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): P with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
Row 3 (= RS): 1 edge st in garter st, K until 2 sts remain, 1 YO, K 1 (insert 1 marker in this st), 1 YO, K 1.
Row 4: P all sts and YOs with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
Then work in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side while AT THE SAME TIME on every row from RS inc 1 st on each side of st with marker – READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc per inc row).
When piece measures 26-28-30-30-33-36 cm / 10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-13"-14 1/4" measured from the edge on sleeve at the longest (piece measures approx. 11-13-15-15-18-21 cm / 4 3/8"-5 1/8"-6"-6"-7"-8 1/4" from where new sts were cast on), work STRIPE PATTERN – see explanation above, with 1 edge st in garter st in each side – NOTE: Continue inc on each side of st with marker as before.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 31-33-34-37-39-42 cm / 12 1/4"-13"-13 3/8"-14½"-15 1/4"-16½" from edge of sleeve, bind off for neck on every other row (i.e. at beg of every row from RS) as follows: bind off 12-12-12-13-13-13 sts 1 time and 1 st 2-2-2-3-3-3 times, then bind off 1 st every 4th row (i.e. on every other row from RS) 2 times in total.
Continue with STRIPE PATTERN, 1 edge st in garter st in each side and inc as before until piece measures approx. 38-40-42-45-48-51 cm / 15"-15 3/4"-16½"-17 3/4"-19"-20" from edge of sleeve – adjust after 7 rows K (piece measures approx. 23-25-27-30-33-36 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/4"-13"-14 1/4" from where new sts were cast on and edge with STRIPE PATTERN measures approx. 12-12-12-15-15-15 cm / 4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-6"-6"-6"). On next row from WS bind off sts at beg of row and to and with st with marker (= bottom edge on jacket) = approx. 122-126-132-134-138-142 sts remain on row.
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work in garter st back and forth for 2 cm / 3/4'' for band, then loosely bind off.

RIGHT SLEEVE + FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as left front piece but reversed. I.e. inc under sleeve in right side of piece (seen from RS) and when casting on new sts on row (for side on front piece), cast on at the end of row from WS (instead of RS). K 1 row from RS. Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= WS): 1 edge st in garter st, P until 1 st remains and work 2 sts in last st (= 1 st inc towards bottom edge) = 88-88-87-87-85-82 sts.
Row 2 (= RS): 1 edge st in garter st, 1 YO, K 1 (insert 1 marker in this st), 1 YO and K the rest of row.
Row 3 (= WS): P with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
Then work in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side while AT THE SAME TIME on every row from RS inc 1 st on each side of st with marker as on left front piece.
When casting/binding off for neck, bind off at beg of every row from WS (instead of RS) and bind off sts in bottom edge on jacket from RS instead of WS.
In addition when band measures approx. ½-1 cm / 1/4"-½", bind off for 6-6-6-7-7-7 buttonholes evenly. Upper buttonhole should be max. 0.5 cm / 1/4" from neck edge, and bottom hole approx. 10 cm / 4'' from bottom edge. 1 buttonhole = bind off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts.

LEFT SLEEVE + BACK PIECE:
Work as right sleeve + front piece but when piece measures 31-33-34-37-39-42 cm / 12 1/4"-13"-13 3/8"-14½"-15 1/4"-16½", bind off for neck at beg of every row from WS as follows: bind off 1 st 4 times in total.
When sts in bottom edge have been bind off, approx. 134-138-142-148-152-156 sts remain on needle.
Work 1 ridge in garter st and loosely bind off (= mid back).

RIGHT SLEEVE + BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work as left sleeve + front piece but bind off for neck as on left back piece (and bind off at beg of every row from RS).

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the back piece tog mid back inside bind-off edge. Sew shoulder seams inside 1 edge st. Sew underarm and side seams in one inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from RS approx. 94 to 116 sts around the neck on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Delight. K 4 rows (1st row = WS) and loosely bind off with K from WS.
