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

DECREASING TIP (applies to the side on front and back piece): Make all dec from RS!
Dec as follows after 1 garter st: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.
Dec as follows 2 sts before 1 garter st: K2 tog.

PATTERN: See diagram M.1. Diagram shows the pattern from RS.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid that the sleeve edge points out on mid upper sleeve work a round as follows after working 2 cm according to chart M.1: on approx 12-18 sts on upper sleeve, knit tog the 2 sts between each K-st in the pattern – and on following rounds on this section work the st between each K-st in garter st until finished measurements (i.e. K 1 on every other round and P 1 on every other round).
--------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in order to fit in all sts.
BACK PIECE:
Cast on 84-90-98-106-116-126 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands Alpaca. Work 6 rows GARTER ST - see above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st each side. When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm dec 1 st each side – See DECREASING TIP. Repeat the dec each side on every 5.5-5.5-6-7.5-7.5-7.5 cm a total of 5-5-5-4-4-4 times = 74-80-88-98-108-118 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 30-31-32-32-32-32 cm cast on 28-28-28-27-27-26 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 130-136-144-152-162-170 sts. Continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st each side. When piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm slip sts on a stitch holder for shaped shoulder at the beg of every row each side as follows (work the sts before slipping them on stitch holder to avoid cutting the thread): 8 sts 0-0-0-0-0-6 times, 7 sts 0-0-1-6-5-0 times, 6 sts 5-5-4-0-0-0 times and 4-7-9-0-10-0 sts 1 time - NOTE: slip first st as if to K and tighten thread after sts have been slipped on stitch holder. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm cast off the middle 22-22-24-26-26-26 sts for neck and complete each shoulder separately. Cast off 1 st on neckline on next row. Now slip the remaining 19-19-19-20-22-23 sts on the same stitch holder as shoulder-sts = 53-56-59-62-67-71 sts on stitch holder, piece measures approx 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from bottom edge and up to shoulder, where longest.

READ ALL OF THIS SECTION BEFORE KINITTING IT!
Cast on 84-90-98-106-116-126 sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands Alpaca. Work 6 rows garter st, change to circular needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st each side. When piece measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm dec at the side as described for back piece (i.e. on left side of piece as seen from RS). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 23-24-24-25-25-26 cm cast off on right side of piece as seen from RS for sloped front edge as follows: 5 sts 1-1-2-2-3-3 times, 3 sts 5-5-5-6-6-7 times, 2 sts 8-9-9-10-10-11 times and 1 st 18-19-19-19-19-19 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 30-31-32-32-32-32 cm cast on 28-28-28-27-27-26 new sts at the end of row towards the side. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm slip sts on stitch holder for shaped shoulder as described for back piece. Piece now measures approx 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm up to shoulder, where longest.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Like right front piece, but mirrored.

ASSEMBLY:
Slip the 53-56-59-62-67-71 sts from stitch holder on one shoulder on circular needle size 4.5 mm and continue as follows with 2 strands Alpaca: K 1 row from RS – NOTE: To avoid a hole in each transition pick up a st in transition and work this tog with first st on left needle. On next row cast off loosely with K sts from RS. Repeat in the same way along the 3 other shoulders. Sew shoulder seams inside cast off row – make sure seam isn’t too tight. Sew under arm seams and side seams inside 1 edge st.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Pick up 1 st in each st round sleeve edge on small circular needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands Alpaca. P 1 round and K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 90-93-99-105-114-120 sts. Continue in M.1 – See KNITTING TIP! When sleeve edge measures 6 cm cast off with K over K and P over P.

COLLAR:
Beg on right front piece where dec for sloped front edge beg and pick up from RS approx 128-134-143-149-158-164 sts (divisible by with 3 + 2) along front edge to mid back on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands Alpaca. NOTE: Make sure to pick up enough sts on the sloped part at front. K 1 row from WS and continue in M.1 with 1 edge st in garter st each side (Row 1 = RS). Cast off loosely with K over K and P over P when collar measures approx 16-16-17-17-18-18 cm.
Repeat along left front piece but adjust so that pattern is identical mid back when collar is sewn tog.

FURTHER ASSEMBLY:
Sew collar tog mid back in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam. Crochet a small strap on one of the front pieces in corner by collar (by cast off row). Beg from WS approx 2 cm in on the cast off row, work 1 dc in first st, 6 ch and fasten with 1 sl st approx 2 cm down along collar. Cut and fasten thread. Crochet a similar strap in the corner on the other front piece (also from WS). Sew on buttons – sew one button on RS mid under sleeve on right side of piece and sew the other button on WS mid under sleeve on left side of piece.
