See diagram M.1 – the diagram shows pattern from the RS.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

GARTER ST (in the round): K 1 round, P 1 round.

BUTTONHOLES:
Make buttonholes on right front band. 1 buttonhole = K tog 2nd and 3rd st from mid front and make 1 YO.
Make buttonholes when piece measures:
SIZE 1/3 months: 4, 8, 13, 17, 22 and 26 cm [1½”, 3 1/8”, 5 1/8”, 6Ύ”, 8Ύ”, 10Ό”]

JACKET

BODY PIECE: Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 128-144-158 (170-186) sts (includes 5 front band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm [US 6] with Merino Extra Fine. Work 4 rows garter st (first row = RS) – SEE ABOVE.
Work next row as follows from RS: 5 front band sts in garter st, P1, K2 in each of the next 2 sts (i.e. 2 sts inc to 4), P across the row until 8 sts remain, K2 in each of the next 2 sts, P1 and 5 front band sts in garter st = 132-148-162 (174-190) sts.
Insert 1 marker 36-40-44 (47-51) sts in from each side (= 60-68-74 (80-88) sts between markers on back piece).
Work next row as follows from WS: 5 garter sts, K1, M.1, K across the row until 10 sts remain, M.1, K1, 5 garter sts.
Work next row as follows from RS: 5 garter sts, P1, M.1, P across the row until 10 sts remain, M.1, P1, 5 garter sts.
Continue in pattern like this (i.e. front band sts in garter st, 1 st in reverse stockinette st inside front bands, 1 cable (= M.1) each side and remaining sts in reverse stockinette st).
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm [1½’’] dec 1 st on each side of both markers by P2 tog. Repeat the dec on every 4 cm [1½’’] a total of 4-4-4 (5-5) times = 116-132-146 (154-170) sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4-4-4 (5-5) cm [1½”-1½”-1½” (2”-2”)] make buttonhole on right front band – SEE ABOVE.
When piece measures approx 19-21-24 (27-30) cm [7½”-8Ό”-9½” (10 5/8”-11Ύ”)] – adjust so that next row is from WS – bind off 6 sts each side for armhole (= 3 sts on each side of both markers) = 104-120-134 (142-158) sts left on row. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 28-30-32 (34-38) sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm [US 6] with Merino Extra Fine. Work 4 rounds garter st – SEE ABOVE. Continue in reverse stockinette st, and insert a marker at beg of round = mid under arm. When piece measures 4 cm [1½’’] inc 1 st on each side of marker and repeat the inc on every 6-5-6 (6-8) round a total of 5-6-7 (8-8) times = 38-42-46 (50-54) sts. When piece measures 14-15-18 (22-26) cm [5½”-6”-7” (8Ύ”-10Ό”)] bind off 6 sts mid under arm = 32-36-40 (44-48) sts.
Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.

YOKE: Slip sleeves on the same circular needle as body piece where bound off for armhole = 168-192-214 (230-254) sts. Work 1 row from RS with front bands and cables as before and remaining sts in reverse stockinette st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-4-6 (2-6) sts evenly (do not dec on front bands and cables) = 168-188-208 (228-248) sts.
Work next row as follows from WS: 5 garter sts, K1, M.1, * K8, P2 in each of the next 2 sts (i.e. 2 sts inc to 4) *, repeat from *-* until 18 sts remain, K8, M.1, K1 and 5 garter sts = 196-220-244 (268-292) sts.
Work next row as follows from RS: 5 garter sts, P1, M.1, * P8, M.1 *, repeat from *-* 15-17-19 (21-23) times, P1 and 5 garter sts. Continue in pattern like this, AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS dec for raglan – SEE DECREASING TIP.
Continue to dec on every 8th row: 0-0-1 (2-3) times, on every 6th row: 1-2-2 (1-1) times and then on every 4th row: 4-3-2 (2-1) times. AT THE SAME TIME when yoke measures 8-9-10 (11-12) cm [3 1/8”-3½”-4” (4 3/8”-4Ύ”)] slip 8 sts each side towards mid front on stitch holders for neck.
Bind off to shape the neckline each side at the beg of every row from mid front: 1 st 2 times each side.
When yoke measures 10-11-12 (13-14) cm [4”-4 3/8”-4Ύ” (5 1/8”-5½”)] dec all P2 between cables to P1 and K tog the 4 sts on each cable 2 by 2 = approx 43-49-55 (61-67) sts left on row.

COLLAR: Pick up 10 sts on each side of neckline mid front (incl sts on stitch holders). K 1 row from WS, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts evenly to 50-54-58 (62-66). Work garter st back and forth on needle until collar measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm [1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1½” (1½”-2”)]. Now bind off 1 st each side a total of 4 times and then bind off remaining sts. Collar measures approx 5-5-6 (6-7) cm [2”-2”-2 3/8” (2 3/8”-2Ύ”)].

ASSEMBLY: Sew openings under arms.
Crochet a picot border – SEE ABOVE – round collar, round sleeve edges and along bottom edge of jacket. Sew on buttons.

BONNET:

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
LOOSELY cast on 64-70-76 (82-88) sts on circular needle size 4 mm [US 6] with Merino extra fine. Work 4 rows garter st – SEE ABOVE. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 garter st, * K2 in each of the next 2 sts, P4 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain, K2 in each of the next 2 sts, 1 garter st = 86-94-102 (110-118) sts. Continue as follows from WS: 1 garter st, * M.1, K 4 *, repeat from *-* until 5 sts remain, M.1 (= 4 sts) and 1 garter st.
Work next row as follows from RS: 1 garter st, * M.1, P 4 *, repeat from *-* until 5 sts remain, M.1 (= 4 sts), 1 garter st.
Continue in pattern like this until piece measures approx 10-11-12 (13-14) cm [4”-4 3/8”-4Ύ” (5 1/8”-5½”)] – adjust so that next row is from RS – and now K tog the 4 sts on each cable 2 by 2 = 64-70-76 (82-88) sts. On next row from WS bind off the first 23-25-27 (29-31) sts, work remaining sts on row. On next row from RS bind off the first 23-25-27 (29-31) sts = 18-20-22 (24-26) sts left on row (= back piece).
Work garter st back and forth on these sts for 11-12-13 (14-15) cm [4 3/8”-4Ύ”-5 1/8” (5½”-6”)], bind off.

ASSEMBLY: Sew the sides on the piece mid back to side pieces, sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
Pick up approx 60 to 84 sts (divisible by 4) along bottom edge of bonnet on circular needle size 4 mm [US 6], K 1 row from WS and K 1 row from RS. Work next row as follows from WS: K2, * P2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* and K2 (= eyelet row).
K 2 rows on all sts and bind off.
Crochet a ch-string measuring approx 70 cm [27½”] with crochet hook size 4 mm [G/6] and thread string through eyelet row.
Crochet a picot border – SEE ABOVE – round the front opening of bonnet.
