Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 K rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

KNITTING TIP:
On the rows where dropped sts are worked, make 1 extra YO inside the edge st in each side (i.e. 3 YOs on needle with large dropped sts and 2 YOs on needle with small dropped sts). Slip YOs off the needle on next row as before. This is done to avoid tight edges on the piece.

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the weight of the yarn all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.
----------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Loosely cast on 36-40-44-48-52-56 sts on needle size 12 mm / US 17 with 1 strand of each yarn (= 3 strands). Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above (1st row = RS). Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side - READ KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER KNITTING GAUGE.
When piece measures 56-58-60-61-64-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-23½"-24"-25 1/4"-26" - READ MEASURING TIP, cast on 2 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 40-44-48-52-56-60 sts.
Continue A.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side - NOTE: It is important to also make 1 extra YO on the rows with dropped sts inside edge st in each side (slip YOs off the needle on next row). This is done to avoid tight edges on the piece.
When piece measures 69-72-75-78-81-84 cm / 27"-28½"-29½"-30 3/4"-32"-33" - remember Measuring tip, bind off the middle 10-10-10-12-12-12 sts for neck from RS and finish each shoulder separately.
Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 14-16-18-19-21-23 sts remain on the shoulder. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS before LOOSELY binding off with K from RS, piece measures approx. 71-74-77-80-83-86 cm / 28''-29 1/8''-30 3/8''-31½''-32¾''-33 7/8''.
Repeat on the other shoulder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Loosely cast on 21-23-25-27-29-31 sts (incl 3 band sts towards mid front) on needle size 12 mm / US 17 with 1 strand of each yarn (= 3 strands). Work 2 ridges.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 the same way as on back piece but work the 3 outermost sts towards mid front (= band) and 1 st at the edge towards the side in garter st - NOTE: It is important to also make YOs on the rows with dropped sts between every st in garter st as on back piece.
When piece measures 56-58-60-61-64-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-23½"-24"-25 1/4"-26" - remember Measuring tip, cast on 2 new sts at the end of next row towards the side = 23-25-27-29-31-33 sts. Continue pattern with 1 edge st in garter st in the side and 3 edge sts in garter st towards mid front.
When piece measures 65-68-71-73-76-79 cm / 25½"-26 3/4"-28"-28 3/4"-30"-31", bind off the 7-7-7-8-8-8 outermost sts towards mid front for neck. Then bind off for neck at the beg of every row from mid front: 1 st 2 times = 14-16-18-19-21-23 sts remain on needle.
Continue to work until piece measures 70-73-76-79-82-85 cm / 27½"-28 3/4"-30"-31"-32 1/4"-33½", K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS before LOOSELY binding off with K from RS.

Repeat dec every 11-11-9-8-8-6 cm / 4½"-4½"-3½"-3"-3"-2½" 3-3-4-4-4-5 more times (= 4-4-5-5-5-6 dec in total) = 16-18-18-20-20-20 sts remain on needle.
Continue pattern until sleeve measures 44-42-41-39-38-36 cm / 17 1/4"-16½"-16 1/8"-15 1/4"-15"-14 1/4".
Switch to circular needle size 10 mm / US 15 and work in garter st back and forth until sleeve measures 49-47-46-44-43-41 cm / 19 1/4"-18½"-18"-17 1/4"-17"-16 1/8" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Loosely bind off.

I love the look of this jacket but I am very sensitive to wool against my skin, particularly against my neck and in the collar area? Which of your yarn combinations would you recommend for me to use to avoid this problem? Thanks for your help.
