JACKET:
Worked back and forth on needle from the left side, in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 75-78-82-85-88-92 sts on needle size 5 mm with 1 thread of each colour. K 4 rows on all sts (first row = RS). Insert 2 markers in piece from RS as follows:
First marker: after 47-49-52-54-56-59 sts Second marker: after a total of 57-60-64-67-70-74 sts
= 18 sts after the last marker = collar.

-7-7.5-8-8.5 cm at the top (= by neck) and approx 16-17.5-19-20.5-22-23.5 cm at bottom. Insert a marker at the top by neck – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Slip the bottom 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts on a stitch holder = 45-46-48-49-50-52 sts left on needle for sleeve. Continue with shortened rows as before (but now there are only 17-17-18-18-18-19 sts before first marker) until piece measures approx 7-7.5-8-8.5-9-9.5 cm from marker by neck and approx 21-22.5-24-25.5-27-28.5 cm at bottom (= over sleeve).
Slip sts on a new stitch holder and slip sts from the first stitch holder back on needle = 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts. Work garter st back and forth on these sts for 4-6-8-10-12-14 cm. Now slip all sts back on needle = 75-78-82-85-88-92 sts. Move marker from top of neck to where you are now, and now measure piece from here! Work shortened rows as before until piece measures approx 10-11-12-13-14-15 cm from marker by neck and approx 30-33-36-39-42-45 cm at bottom. Move marker from top of neck to where you are now, and now measure piece from here! Slip the bottom 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts on a stitch holder = 45-46-48-49-50-52 sts left on needle for sleeve. Continue with shortened rows as before until piece measures approx 7-7.5-8-8.5-9-9.5 cm from marker by neck and approx 21-22.5-24-25.5-27-28.5 cm at the bottom (= over sleeve).
Slip sts on a new stitch holder and slip sts from the previous stitch holder back on needle = 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts. Work garter st back and forth on these sts for 4-6-8-10-12-14 cm. Now slip all sts back on the same needle = 75-78-82-85-88-92 sts.
Move marker from top of neck to where you are now, and now measure piece from here!
