JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 177-191-207-225-245-265 sts (incl 5 band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm with Paris. Work first row from RS as follows: 5 band sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above -, M.1 until 6 sts remain, finish with first st in M.1 and 5 band sts in GARTER ST. Continue the pattern like this. NOTE! On 7th row in M.1 K last st before band.
After M.1, switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work next row from RS as follows: 5 band sts as before, 1 st in stocking st, M.2A over the next 20-20-20-30-30-40 sts, M.2B (= 11 sts), insert a marker (= marker 1), work 21-28-31-25-30-25 sts in stocking st, insert a marker (= marker 2), work M.2A over the next 50-50-60-70-80-90 sts, M.2B (= 11 sts), insert a marker (= marker 3), work 21-28-31-25-30-25 sts in stocking st, insert a marker (= marker 4), work M.2A over the next 20-20-20-30-30-40 sts, M.2B (= 11 sts), 1 st in stocking st and 5 band sts in garter st. Continue the pattern like this.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 9-9-10-10-10-10 cm, dec 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 (= 4 sts dec). READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 3 cm a total of 9 times = 141-155-171-189-209-229 sts. REMEMBER BUTTON HOLES ON RIGHT BAND - see explanation above. When piece measures 37-38-38-38-39-39 cm, inc 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 (= 4 sts inc). READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every 5-5-5-5-9-9 cm a total of 3-3-3-3-2-2 times = 153-167-183-201-217-237 sts. Now remove the 4 markers and insert 2 new markers in the piece after 41-44-48-53-57-62 sts from each side (= 71-79-87-95-103-113 sts between markers on back piece). Continue pattern as before. When piece measures approx. 49-51-52-52-54-55 cm - adjust after 1st, 9th or 11th row in M.2, i.e. so that next row is worked from WS -, cast off 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 3-3-3-4-4-4 sts on each side of both markers) = 65-73-81-87-95-105 sts on back piece and 38-41-45-49-53-58 sts on each front piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 42-42-42-44-44-44 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with Paris. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Work M.1. AT THE SAME TIME on last round of M.1, inc 1 st = 43-43-43-45-45-45 sts. After M.1, switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm and work next round as follows: 1-1-1-2-2-2 sts in stocking st, M.2A over the next 30 sts, M.2B (= 11 sts) and 1-1-1-2-2-2 sts in stocking st. Continue the pattern like this. When piece measures 8-9-9-9-10-12 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st on each side of marker). Repeat inc every 5-3½-3-2½-2-1½ cm a total of 7-9-10-11-13-15 times = 57-61-63-67-71-75 sts. NOTE! Work inc sts in stocking st until they can be worked in one whole repetition of the pattern. When piece measures approx. 41-41-40-38-38-37 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width) - adjust to finish after same round in diagram as on body - cast off 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 3-3-3-4-4-4 sts on each side of marker) = 51-55-57-59-63-67 sts. Slip sts on a stitch holder and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 5 mm as body where armholes were cast off = 243-265-285-303-327-355 sts. Work 2-2-4-2-2-4 rows in stocking st (1st row = K from RS and work bands in garter st as before until finished measurements) while AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-2-8-12-8-8 sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 235-263-277-291-319-347 sts. Work next row from RS as follows (NOTE! see diagram for correct size): 5 band sts, M.3 over the next 224-252-266-280-308-336 sts (1 repetition = 14 sts), finish with 1st st in M.3 and 5 band sts. Continue the pattern like this. NOTE: On the rows that start with K 2 tog at beg of 1 repetition, K last st before band. Continue the pattern like this. After last dec, 107-119-125-131-143-155 sts remain on needle, work last row in diagram = P from WS.

NECKLINE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work M.1 with 5 band sts in each side (1st row = RS) while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row, dec 22-28-28-28-32-36 sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 85-91-97-103-111-119 sts. When 2 rows of M.1 have been worked, continue with GARTER ST back and forth on needle while AT THE SAME TIME working an elevation in the back of neck as follows (start from RS):
Work until 12-13-14-15-16-17 sts remain on needle, turn piece, tighten the thread and work back until 12-13-14-15-16-17 sts remain in the other side. Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts remain on needle, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts remain in the other side.
Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 36-39-42-45-48-51 sts remain on needle, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 36-39-42-45-48-51 sts remain in the other side. Turn piece, tighten thread and K the rest of the row.
Then continue M.1 with 5 band sts in each side but now start from WS on 4th row in diagram (last st on needle before band is worked as first st in M.1). NOTE! On 7th row in diagram K last st before band. After M.1, loosely cast off with K from RS.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew on buttons.
