JACKET:
Worked in one piece from side to side. Beg on left front piece, then knit the sleeve, the back piece, the other sleeve and finish with right front piece. The whole jacket is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
LOOSELY cast on 54-58-66 (74-80) sts on needle size 4.5 mm with off-white. Work 10 rows back and forth on needle for front band (first row = RS, this row beg at bottom edge). Now work shortened rows and stripes as follows: * work 36-38-44 (50-54) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 49-53-61 (69-75) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, turn piece and work return row. Work 36-38-44 (50-54) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 49-53-61 (69-75) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 52-56-64 (72-78) sts with off-white, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row *. Repeat from *-* (i.e. 1 repeat = 12 rows at the bottom and 2 rows at the top). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures approx 14-15.5-17 (18.5-19.5) cm measured where widest (adjust so next row is worked on all sts in off-white) slip the bottom 32-34-40 (46-50) sts on a stitch holder (= the side). Cut the thread. Cast on 28-32-36 (44-52) new sts (over sts on stitch holder) at beg of row with off-white for sleeve and work remaining sts on row = 50-56-62 (72-82) sts on needle. Turn piece and work return row on all sts.

SLEEVE:
Continue as follows: * Work 32-36-40 (48-56) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 45-51-57 (67-77) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 48-54-60 (70-80) sts with off-white, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 32-36-40 (48-56) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 45-51-57 (67-77) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, turn piece and work return row *. Repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 16-17-18 (18-20) cm from where sleeve sts were cast on – measured where widest (adjust so next row is worked on all sts with off-white). On next row from RS cast off the first 28-32-36 (44-52) sts with light grey and slip remaining 22-24-26 (28-30) sts on a stitch holder.
Now slip the 32-34-40 (46-50) sts from the first stitch holder back on needle.

Work 10-11-13 (15-16) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 20-22-26 (30-32) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white (insert a marker in piece = the side), turn piece and work return row. Work 10-11-13 (15-16) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 20-22-26 (30-32) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, AT THE SAME TIME at the end of row work the top 22-24-26 (28-30) sts on stitch holder back on needle. Turn piece and work all sts = 54-58-66 (74-80) sts.
