Pattern instructions

Pattern: See diagram. 1 diagram = 1 repeat.

The jacket is knitted from side to side, back and forth on circular needle in reverse stocking st, beg mid front and work towards mid back. The jacket is assembled mid back afterwards.

Left piece: Cast on 53-51-55 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with off-white Silketweed and work stocking st. Work 2 rows in off-white and continue in stripe pattern. After 4 rows inc for neck on every other row: 2 sts 7 times, 4 sts 5 times, 8 sts 1 time, 11-13-13 sts 1 time = 106-106-110 sts. Now dec to shape the shoulder on the left side of piece as follows: size S+M: 1 st 5 times on every 2 cm, size L: 1 st 4 times on every 3 cm = 101-101-106 sts. When piece measures 22-22-23 cm cast off for armhole on the left side of piece: 33-35-38 sts 1 time and then on every 1 cm 5 sts 3 times = 53-51-53 sts. When piece measures 26-27.5-29 cm inc the same number of sts in reverse order = 101-101-106 sts and inc for shoulder in reverse order = 106-106-110 sts. When piece measures 41-44-47 cm cast off 5 sts on the left side of piece for neck on back piece = 101-101-105 sts. Continue until neckline measures 8-8-8 cm – piece now measures 49-52-55 cm – and slip all sts on a thread (= mid back).

Right piece: Cast on and work like left piece, but mirrored. At the same time after 5 rows make 6 buttonholes evenly distributed on row. 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on return row.

Sleeves: Knitted from side to side back and forth on circular needle in reverse stocking st. Cast on 9-9-9 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with blue Silketweed and work reverse stocking st, at the same time inc each side as follows: on the right side on every other row: size S: 7 sts 7 times, 6 sts 7 times, 8 sts 1 time, size M: 7 sts 4 times, 6 sts 11 times, 7 sts 1 time, size L: 6 sts 11 times, 5 sts 5 times, 10 sts 1 times. On the left side: on every 5th row 2 sts 9 times for all sizes = 126-128-128 sts. At the same time after 47-51-54 rows (piece measures approx 15.5-17-18 cm) knit M.2. After M.2 knit M.2 again but in reverse order, i.e. the diagram from top down. After M.2 complete the sleeve in blue Silketweed. After 81-87-93 rows (piece measures approx 27-29-31 cm) dec on the left side of piece on every 5th row: 2 sts 9 times for all sizes. At the same time after 96-102-106 rows (piece measures approx 32-34-35 cm) dec on the right side on every other row in reverse order of the inc made earlier = 9-9-9 sts. Work 1 row stocking st and cast off. The length of the sleeve = approx 55-56-56 cm.

Assembly: Sew tog sts from left and right piece mid back. Join shoulders. Pick up approx 210 to 240 along bottom edge on circular needle size 3.5 mm with blue Silketweed and work 1.5 cm reverse stocking st back and forth on needle. Cast off. Pick up approx 120 to 130 along one front piece and round the neck to mid back with blue Silketweed and work 1.5 cm reverse stocking st, cast off. Repeat along the other front piece and sew tog edges mid back. Pick up approx 50 sts round both sleeve edges on circular needle size 3.5 mm with blue Silketweed and work 1.5 cm reverse stocking st, cast off. Fold all edges double towards the WS and attach. Sew sleeve seams tog and set in sleeves. Sew on buttons.
