JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front up to the armhole. Then front and back pieces are worked separately and new sts cast on each side for sleeves. The jacket is assembled sewing the upper arm/shoulder and under arm seams.

BODY PIECE:
Cast on 117-131-145 (155-169) sts (includes 6 front band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Merino Extra Fine. Work 6 rows GARTER ST – see above (first row = RS), then K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st in the 10th and 11th st from mid front, repeat the inc at the end of row (in 11th and 10th st on needle) = 121-135-149 (159-173) sts. Insert a marker 34-38-42 (44-48) sts in from each side (= 53-59-65 (71-77) sts between markers on back piece). Now work next row as follows from WS: 6 garter sts (= front band), M.3 (= 10 sts), M.2 on the next 89-103-117 (127-141) sts, M.1 (= 10 sts) and 6 garter sts (= front band). Continue in pattern like this - REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES ON RIGHT FRONT BAND - see above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 16-17-20 (23-25) cm / 6¼''-6¾''-8'' (9''-9¾'') divide piece by markers and complete front and back pieces separately.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 34-38-42 (44-48) sts. Continue in pattern as before, AT THE SAME TIME cast on new sts for sleeve at the end of every row towards the side as follows: 4 sts 2-2-3 (3-3) times, 8 sts 1-1-1 (1-3) times, 10 sts 1-1-1 (2-1) times and 19-22-23 (23-24) sts 1 time = 79-86-95 (107-118) sts - NOTE: incorporate inc sts in M.2 as you go along. After the last inc continue as before but work 10 sts towards sleeve edge in garter st (= folding edge on sleeve). When 1 row remains before piece measures 23-25-28 (32-35) cm / 9"-9 3/4"-11" (12½"-13 3/4") – adjust to a row from WS - dec 2 sts over cable by P2 tog twice on the 4 cable sts. On next row from RS slip 9-11-12 (12-13) sts towards mid front on a stitch holder for neck. Bind off to shape the neckline at the beg of every row from mid front: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-2-3 (3-3) times = 62-67-74 (86-96) sts left on needle (= shoulder + sleeve). Continue in M.2 and bind off when piece measures 27-29-33 (37-40) cm / 10 5/8''-11 3/8''-13'' (14½''-15¾'').

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Like right front piece but mirrored.

BACK PIECE:
= 53-59-65 (71-77) sts. Continue in M.2 as before, AT THE SAME TIME cast on new sts each side at the end of every row as described for front piece = 143-155-171 (197-217) sts. Now continue in M.2 with 10 garter sts each side on sleeve edges. When piece measures 25-27-31 (35-38) cm / 9 3/4"-10 5/8"-12 1/4" (13 3/4"-15") cast of the middle 17-19-21 (23-23) sts for neck and complete each shoulder/sleeve separately. Bind off 1 st on neckline on next row = 62-67-74 (86-96) sts left on needle (= shoulder + sleeve). Bind off when piece measures 27-29-33 (37-40) cm / 10 5/8''-11 3/8''-13'' (14½''-15¾''). Repeat on the other side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder/upper arm seams, edge to edge with neat sts. Sew under arm seams. Sew on buttons. Fold the bottom 5 cm / 2'' on both sleeve edges towards RS, if needed attach with a few sts.

HOOD:
Pick up from RS approx 55 to 75 sts round neck (includes sts from stitch holders at front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Merino Extra Fine. K 1 row from WS, then K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc evenly to 85-89-93 (97-101) sts. Continue in M.2 with 6 sts each side in garter st - AT THE SAME TIME cast on 6 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows for folding edge = 97-101-105 (109-113) sts – work these 6 sts in garter st. Continue in M.2 with 12 garter sts each side until hood measures 21-23-25 (27-28) cm / 8 1/4"-9"-9 3/4" (10 5/8"-11"), bind off. Fold hood double and sew tog at the top. Fold the garter st edge double towards RS and attach at the bottom each side.
