JACKET:
Beg on left front piece, work towards the sleeve, back piece, the other sleeve and finish with right front piece.
Loosely cast on 62-68-78 (88-96) sts on needle size 2.5 mm with Baby Merino and K 8 rows for front band (first row = RS).
Work next row as follows from RS: K the first 15 sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 8 sts evenly (inc1 st by making 1 YO), K remaining sts on needle = 70-76-86 (96-104) sts. K 1 row from WS on all sts, work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. Continue as follows: work the first 23 sts on needle in M.1, and K remaining sts on every row. AT THE SAME TIME work shortened rows as follows – see KNITTING TIP: * work the first 30-32-38 (42-47) sts, turn piece and work return row, work the first 46-50-57 (65-70) sts, turn piece and work return row, work the first 64-70-80 (90-98) sts, turn piece and work return row, work all 70-76-86 (96-104) sts, turn and work return row *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 16-17.5-19.5 (20.5-22) cm from cast on row (measured just before the first turn, i.e. over M.1). Cut the thread. Now slip the first 41-45-52 (60-65) sts towards bottom edge on a stitch holder (= the side). Cast on 36-42-46 (60-70) new sts over sts on stitch holder (i.e. before the 29-31-34 (36-39) sts left on needle) for sleeve and now continue as follows (first row = from RS): * work the first 41-47-51 (65-75) sts, turn piece and work return row, work the first 59-67-74 (90-103) sts, turn piece and work return row, work all 65-73-80 (96-109) sts, turn and work return row *. Repeat from *-*. When piece measures 16-17-18 (18-20) cm from where sts for sleeve were cast on (measured where widest, i.e. along bottom edge) cast off 36-42-46 (60-70) sts from sleeve edge towards body piece. Cut the thread. Slip the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from stitch holder at the side back on needle and insert a marker in piece. Continue from bottom of body piece as before from *-* as described for front piece (first row = from RS).
When piece measures 28-31-35 (37-40) cm from marker (measured just before the first turn, i.e. over M.1) cut the thread. Slip the first 41-45-52 (60-65) sts towards bottom edge on a stitch holder (= the side). Cast on 36-42-46 (60-70) new sts over sts on stitch holder (i.e. before the 29-31-34 (36-39) sts left on needle) for sleeve and continue as before from *-* as described for the other sleeve. When sleeve measures the same as the left sleeve cast off 36-42-46 (60-70) sts from sleeve edge towards body piece. Cut the thread. Slip the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from stitch holder at the side back on needle and continue from bottom of body piece as before from *-* as described for front piece (first row = RS). When right front piece measures the same as left front piece (less front band) work next row from RS as follows: K the first 23 sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 8 sts evenly (dec 1 st by K2 tog) and K remaining 47-53-63 (73-81) sts on row = 62-68-78 (88-96) sts. Now work front band as follows (first row = from WS): K 3 rows on all sts, on next row from RS make 3 buttonholes as follows (i.e. from bottom edge towards neckline):
K 41-45-53 (61-65) sts, 1 YO, K2 tog, K 7-8-9 (10-12) sts, 1 YO, K2 tog, K 7-8-9 (10-12) sts, 1 YO, K2 tog and finish with K1. Turn and K all sts on return row. Now K 5 rows on all sts and cast off loosely from RS.
