2nd row: P over K, K over P.
Repeat 2nd row.

Pattern: See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams are seen from the RS.

Buttonhole: Make 4 buttonholes on right front edge from the RS. 1 buttonhole = bind off the 3rd st from the edge and cast on new st in the same place on the return row.
Make buttonholes as follows:
Size 1/3 months: 4, 8, 12 and 16 cm
Size 6/9 months: 5, 10, 14 and 18 cm
Size 12/18 months: 5, 10, 15 and 20 cm
Size 24 months: 6, 11, 17 and 22 cm

Dec tips (apply to neckline): Dec inside 4 sts in seed sts + 1 P st (= 5 edge sts) from the RS.
Dec as follows after 5 edge sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso.
Dec as follows before 5 edge sts: K2 tog.

Back and front piece:
The jacket is knitted back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 121-137-153-169 sts (incl 4 front edge sts each side towards mid front) on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat and knit 2 rows garter sts (1st row = RS).
Knit next row as follows from the RS: 4 front edge sts in seed sts, P1, 112-128-144-160 sts of M.1 and 4 front edge sts in seed sts.
Continue pattern like this. At the same time when piece measures 4-5-5-6 cm make buttonhole on right front edge – see explanation above.
After M.1 continue in stockinette sts with 4 front edge sts in seed sts and 1 P st each side, at the same time dec 11-11-13-13 sts evenly on first row in stockinette sts = 110-126-140-156 sts.
When piece measures 16-17-19-21 cm knit next row as follows from the RS: 27-31-34-38 sts (= right front piece), bind off 4 sts for armhole, knit 48-56-64-72 sts (= back piece), bind off 4 sts for armhole, knit 27-31-34-38 sts (= left front piece).
Now finish each piece separately.

Right front piece: = 27-31-34-38 sts. Dec for armhole on every other row as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-3-4-5 times = 21-24-26-29 sts.
At the same time when piece measures 17-19-21-23 cm dec 1 st towards mid front for neckline on every other row a total of 11-12-12-13 times – see Dec tips = 10-12-14-16 sts left on shoulder.
Bind off remaining sts when piece measures 27-29-32-35 cm.

Left front piece: = 27-31-34-38 sts. Knit as right front piece, but mirrored.

Back piece: = 48-56-64-72 sts.
Bind off for armholes as described for front piece = 36-42-48-54 sts.
When piece measures 23-25-28-30 cm knit seed sts over the middle 22-24-26-28 sts with 1 P st on each side of the seed sts (seen from the RS).
After 4 rows with seed sts bind off the the middle 14-16-18-20 sts for neck.
Continue with 4 sts in seed sts and 1 P st towards neckline and dec 1 st inside these 5 sts on the next row – see Dec Tips = 10-12-14-16 sts left on each shoulder.
Bind off remaining sts when piece measures 27-29-32-35 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 32-34-36-38 sts (incl 1 edge st each side) on pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat and knit M.2.
After M.2 finish the sleeve in stockinette sts. At the same time when piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' inc 1 st each side on every 4-4-4-5 row a total of 8-9-10-11 times = 48-52-56-60 sts.
