GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):

GARTER ST (in the round on double pointed needles):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram shows all rows in pattern from RS. See diagram for size!

DECREASE TIP (applies to the body):
Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row/round work YO twisted to avoid holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Dec for buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = K tog third and fourth st from mid front and make 1 YO.
Dec for buttonholes when piece measures:

--------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 167-189-211-233 sts (includes 6 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 strand Kid-Silk and 2 strands Glitter.
K 1 round, P 1 round.
Then work as follows from RS: 6 sts in garter st (= band) A.1 over the next 154-176-198-220 sts (= 11 repetitions in width), 1 st in reversed stockinette st (i.e. P from RS, K from WS), 6 sts in garter st (= band).
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, insert 2 markers in piece; the first after 41-46-51-56 sts and the second after 125-142-159-176 sts in total (back piece = 84-96-108-120 sts). Right front piece = 41-46-51-56 sts, left front piece = 42-47-52-57 sts (so that pattern on body fits later).
Then work in stockinette st with 6 sts in garter st in each side (= bands). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE and remember to dec for BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above. When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec).
Repeat dec every 3½-4-4½-5 cm / 1 1/4"-1½"-1 3/4"-2" 3 more times (= 4 dec in total) = 151-173-195-217 sts. When piece measures 24-26-27-29 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/8", inc 1 st on each side of both markers – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3-3-2½-2 cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-7/8"-3/4" 3 more times (= 4 inc in total) = 167-189-211-233 sts.
When piece measures 38-38-37-37 cm / 15"-15"-14½"-14½", bind off the middle 14-16-18-20 sts in each side for armholes from WS (i.e. Bind off 7-8-9-10 sts on each side of both markers) = 70-80-90-100 sts remain on back piece and 34/35-38/39-42/43-46/47 sts remain on front piece.
Put piece aside and make the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 42-48-54-60 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 strand Kid-Silk + 2 strands Glitter.
K 1 round, P 1 round.
Then work A.1 over all sts (= 3 repetitions in width). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue in stockinette st.
Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve).
When piece measures 8 cm / 3'', inc 1 st on each side of marker.
Repeat inc every 5-4-3-2 cm / 2"-1½"-1 1/8"-3/4" 6-7-8-9 more times (= 7-8-9-10 inc in total) = 56-64-72-80 sts.
When piece measures 41-38-34-31 cm / 16 1/8"-15"-13 3/8"-12 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), work A.1 over all sts (= 4 repetitions)- NOTE! Start first repeat of A.1 7-8-9-10 sts before the marker! On last round with A.1 bind off 14-16-18-20 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. bind off 7-8-9-10 sts on each side of marker) = 42-48-54-60 sts remain on needle (= 3 whole repetitions of A.1).
Sleeve measures 46-44-41-39 cm / 18"-17 1/4"-16 1/8"-15 1/4".
Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body = 223-253-283-313 sts. Work next row as follows from RS: 6 band sts as before, work pattern according to diagram A.1 until 7 sts remain on row, finish with 1 st in reversed stockinette st and 6 band sts in garter st. When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, continue with A.2 over A.1. Continue the pattern like this.
When A.2 has been worked, 103-133-163-193 sts remain on needle. K1 row AT THE SAME TIME dec 19-45-61-87 sts evenly = 84-88-102-106 sts. P 1 row.
Then work an elevation at the back of neck as follows in stockinette st, insert 1 marker in middle st (= mid back): K 7 sts past marker mid back, turn, tighten yarn and P 14 sts back, turn, tighten yarn and K 21 sts, turn, continue to work 7 sts more for every turn until a total of 56-70-70-70 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 row until mid front. Work 2 ridges.
Bind off with K from RS.
Yoke measures approx. 20-24-27-31 cm / 8"-9½"-10½"-12 1/4" (mid front) and entire jacket measures approx. 58-62-64-68 cm / 22 3/4"-24½"-25 1/4"-26 3/4".


ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves tog. Sew the buttons on to left front piece.
