----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 262-286-310-338-370-406 sts (incl 10 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 2.5 mm with bark Fabel. P 1 row from WS, then work next row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 sts remain and finish with K 2 and 2 edge sts in GARTER ST. Continue rib like this. Remember BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above. When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 row from RS but continue the outermost 10 sts in each side towards mid front as before (= bands) – AT THE SAME TIME dec 42-46-50-54-58-66 sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 220-240-260-284-312-340 sts. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and continue in stocking st (continue bands as before). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 6 cm, insert 2 markers in the piece; 60-65-70-76-83-90 sts in from each side (= 100-110-120-132-146-160 sts between markers on back piece). Now dec 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3 cm 4 more times = 200-220-240-264-292-320 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm, make an opening for pockets and work next row from RS as follows: Work the first 46-48-50-56-60-66 sts as before, slip the last 28-28-28-32-32-36 sts worked on a stitch holder for pocket opening, work as before until 18-20-22-24-28-30 sts remain on needle, slip the last 28-28-28-32-32-36 sts worked on a stitch holder for pocket opening and work the remaining sts on needle as before. On next row cast on 28-28-28-32-32-36 new sts over each of the 2 pocket openings and continue as before. When piece measures 22 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers in the sides (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 2½-2½-2½-3-3-3 cm 4 more times = 220-240-260-284-312-340 sts.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
When piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm, work the next 2 rows as follows (beg from RS): Work the 10 band sts as before, then slip them on a stitch holder and work the rest of row, turn piece, work the 10 band sts as before and then slip them on a stitch holder, work the rest of row. On next row (= RS) dec 1 st in each side towards mid front for V-neck – READ DECREASE TIP: Repeat dec for neck in each side every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) 0-0-2-9-17-26 more times and then every 4th row (i.e. on every other row from RS) until 6 sts remain before raglan marker on front piece (insert raglan marker in front piece when body and sleeves are put tog – see explanation under yoke) = approx. 9-16-15-12-9-5 times in total every 4th row – NOTE: In size S after the 9 dec on every 4th row, continue dec every 6th row until 6 sts remain before raglan marker = dec approx 4 times in total on every 6th row.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm, cast off for armholes in each side as follows: Work until 6 sts remain before first marker in the side, cast off the next 12 sts, work until 6 sts remain before the marker in the other side, cast off the next 12 sts and work the rest of row. There are now 88-98-108-120-134-148 sts on back piece and approx. 43-48-53-59-66-73 sts on each front piece (depending on how many sts were dec for V-neck). Put piece aside and knit the sleeves (continue dec for V-neck on yoke).

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 72-72-72-76-76-76 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with bark Fabel. K 1 round, then work rib = K 2/P 2. When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-14-12-14-14-12 sts evenly = 58-58-60-62-62-64 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work in stocking st. When piece measures 8-8-9-8-10-8 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve. Repeat inc every 3½-3-2½-2½-2-2 cm 11-13-15-16-18-19 more times = 82-86-92-96-100-104 sts. When piece measures 51-51-51-50-50-50 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), cast off the middle 12 sts under sleeve = 70-74-80-84-88-92 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = approx. 314-342-374-406-442-478 sts. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between body and sleeves (= 4 markers). Continue with stocking st and dec for V-neck as before. AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS, beg dec for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) 3-2-1-0-0-0 times and then every other row (i.e. every row from RS) a total of 21-24-28-32-34-36 times. After all dec for raglan and V-neck, there are approx. 90-96-100-108-118-128 sts on needle. Work 1 row in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME dec evenly to 28-28-28-34-34-38 sts between the 2 markers on back piece (i.e. dec approx. 10-16-20-22-32-38 sts between markers on back piece), then loosely cast off all sts.

BAND/NECK EDGE:
Slip the 10 band sts from stitch holder on right front piece back on needle size 2.5 mm. Continue rib as before but with brown Fabel, in addition cast on 1 new st at the end of row in towards garment (= edge st to sew in). Continue until neck edge measures approx. 30-31-32-34-35-37 cm from where sts were put back on needle (place neck edge against garment mid back, lightly tug it to see if it fits the measurements), then cast off. Repeat along left front piece. Sew neck edges to neck line inside 1 edge st so that the neck edge is placed nicely against dec for V-neck. Sew seam mid back inside cast off edge (seam should be in towards WS of garment).

POCKET:
Slip the 28-28-28-32-32-36 sts from stitch holder on one front piece back on needle size 2.5 mm. Beg from WS with brown Fabel and P 1 row with 1 edge st in garter st in each side while AT THE SAME TIME inc 8 sts evenly = 36-36-36-40-40-44 sts. Continue to work rib from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain and finish with K 2 and 1 edge st in garter st. When rib measures approx. 6-7 cm, loosely cast off with K over K and P over P. Fold rib double towards RS and sew it in each side through both layers inside 1 edge st.
POCKET POUCH:
Knit up 1 new st in each of the 28-28-28-32-32-36 sts cast on over pocket opening.
