JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 699-915-1131 sts (includes 6 front band sts each side) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with Alpaca. Work front bands in GARTER ST – see above – throughout. P 1 row from WS with 6 front band sts each side and continue in rib as follows (from RS): 6 front band sts, * K3, P3 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K3 and 6 front band sts. Continue like this until piece measures approx 2-3-4 cm / 3/4"-1 1/8"-1½". Now continue as follows (from RS): 6 front band sts, 12 sts in rib as before, * M.1, 39 sts in rib as before *, repeat from *-* and finish with M.1, 12 sts in rib as before and 6 front band sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 there are 543-711-879 sts on needle.
Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 7-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3 1/8"-3½". Now continue as follows (from RS): 6 front band sts, 6 sts in rib as before, * M.1, 27 sts in rib as before *, repeat from *-* and finish with M.1, 6 sts rib as before and 6 front band sts. Remember BUTTONHOLES - see above.
After M.1 there are 387-507-627 sts on needle. Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 12-13-14 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½". Now continue as follows (from RS): 6 front band sts, * M.1, 15 sts in rib as before *, repeat from *-* and finish with M.1 and 6 front band sts. After M.1 there are 231-303-375 sts on needle. Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures approx 17-18-19 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½". On next row from RS inc 1 st in each P-section by making 1 YO after P3 = 267-351-435 sts. On next row (from WS) work all YO into back of loop to avoid a hole.
Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 24-26-28 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11". On next row from RS dec 1 st in each P-section by P tog the last 2 P sts = 231-303-375 sts. Work 1 row from WS with K over K and P over P. Now insert a marker in the 62nd-80th-98th st from each side (back piece = 107-143-179 sts).
Continue as follows (from RS):

Continue as before until piece measures 44-47-50 cm / 17 1/4"-18½"-19 3/4".

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 56-70-83 sts. Continue back and forth on needle with K over K, P over P and stockinette st over stockinette st. AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armhole at the side as described for back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 46-48-52 cm / 18"-19"-20½" work 2 rows back and forth on the 6 front band sts only.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round. Cast on 91-103-103 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with Alpaca. K 1 round. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Continue as follows: P2, * K3, P3 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K3 and P2. Continue like this until piece measures 2-3-4 cm / 3/4"-1 1/8"-1½". Now continue as follows: 17-23-23 stockinette sts, rib as before on the next 21 sts, M.1, rib as before on the next 21 sts and 17-23-23 stockinette sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx 3 cm / 1 1/8'' inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st each side of marker). Repeat the inc on every 2.5-2-1.5 cm / 1"-3/4"-½" a total of 18-19-25 times (work inc sts in stockinette st). After M.1 continue with K over K, P over P and stockinette st over stockinette st until piece measures 7-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3 1/8"-3½".
Now continue as follows: stockinette st to the rib, 15 sts in rib as before, M.1, 15 sts in rib as before and stockinette st to the end of round. After M.1 continue with K over K, P over P and stockinette st over stockinette st until piece measures 12-13-14 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½". Now continue as follows: stockinette st to the rib, 9 sts in rib, M.1, 9 sts in rib and stockinette st to the end of round.

When all inc and dec are complete there are 91-105-117 sts on needle. Continue until piece measures 48-46-44 cm / 19"-18"-17 1/4" (less for the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders). Now bind off 8 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 4 sts each side of marker) and continue back and forth on needle. AT THE SAME TIME bind off for sleeve cap at the beg of every row each side: 2 sts 4-5-5 times and 1 st 4-8-13 times, then 2 sts each side until sleeve measures 56-57-58 cm / 22"-22½"-22 3/4". Now bind off 4 sts at beg of the next 2 rows and bind off remaining sts. Piece measures approx 57-58-59 cm / 22½"-22 3/4"-23 1/4".
