Pattern instructions

Pattern: See diagram M.1. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS side.
Edge: Work 3 cm stocking st, change to beige, P 1 row (= folding edge, measure piece from here), change to off-white and work 3 cm stocking

Body: The jacket is knitted round on circular needle after the Edge and cut mid front afterwards. Cast on 220-232-240 sts on circular needles size 2.5 mm with off-white and work Edge – see above – back and forth on needle. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and continue in the round and M.1, at the same time inc 36-40-48 sts evenly on first round + 5 sts mid front – these 5 sts are to be cut afterwards and are not included in pattern = 256-272-288 sts (+ 5 sts for cutting). Remember the knitting tension! Continue in M.1. When piece measures 29-30-30 cm cast off 4 sts each side for armhole (make sure to have the 5 inc sts mid front) = 124-132-140 + 5 sts on front piece and 124-132-140 sts on back piece. Now complete each piece separately.

Front piece: = 124-132-140 sts (+ 5 sts). Dec to shape the armhole on every other row: 2 sts 1-3-3 times and 1 st 3-3-4 times = 114-114-120 sts (+ 5 sts). When piece measures 46-47-48 cm cast off the middle 12-14-16 sts (+ 5 sts) for neck and dec to shape the neckline on every other row: 2 sts 6 times and 1 st 4 times. Cast off when piece measures 56-57-58 cm.

Back piece: = 124-132-140 sts. Dec for armhole as described for front piece = 114-114-120 sts. When piece measures 54-55-56 cm cast off the middle 40-42-44 sts for neck and dec 2 sts on neckline on next row. Cast off when piece measures 56-57-58 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 50-54-58 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with off-white and work Edge. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm, continue in M.1 (make sure to place a pattern repeat mid upper sleeve) and inc 12-8-6 sts evenly on first round = 62-62-64 sts. At the same time after the Edge inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 31-31-32 times on every 3rd and 4th round alternately = 124-124-128 sts. When piece measures 45-46-46 cm cast off 8 sts mid under arm and continue back and forth on needle. Dec each side to shape the sleeve cap on every other row: 6 sts 8 times. Cast off, piece measures approx 51-52-52 cm.

Assembly: Insert a marking thread from top to bottom in the centre of the inc sts mid front. Sew 2 seams on a sewing machine around the marking thread, 1st seam = ½ st from the MT, 2nd seam = ½ st from the 1st seam. Cut mid front. Sew the shoulder seams. Pick up approx 110 to 120 sts along left front piece on needle size 2.5 mm with off-white and work edge back and forth on needle as follows: 3 cm stocking st, change to beige, 1 row stocking st, P 1 row (= folding edge), change to off-white and work 3 cm stocking st, cast off. Repeat along right front piece, but after 1 cm make 5 buttonholes evenly distributed. 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on return row – remember buttonholes on the piece in stocking sts to be folded towards WS! Pick up approx 106 to 114 sts round the neck on needle size 2.5 mm with off-white and work edge as described for front bands back and forth on needle. Fold all edges double towards the WS and fasten.

Jeg er i tvivl om forkanterne går helt ned langs kanten, eller om de først starter der hvor selve mønstret starter...kan ikke se det på billedet
