GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP: Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. K YOs on next row to make holes.

The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Work from mid back on back piece, out towards the sides and up towards the shoulder.
Cast on 119-119-119-115-113-109 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands). Work first row as follows from RS: K 58-58-58-56-55-53, K 2 sts in next st, K 1, K 2 sts in next st and K 58-58-58-56-55-53 = 121-121-121-117-115-111 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker in the 60th-60th-60th-58th-57th-55th st on needle and 1 marker in the 2nd st after 1st marker. There are now 59-59-59-57-56-54 sts after last marker and 1 st between the 2 sts with markers in the middle on row. Turn and K row from WS.
Then work in garter st back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of both sts with markers – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc).
Repeat inc every other row (i.e. every row from RS), 40-43-47-52-57-62 more times (= 41-44-48-53-58-63 inc in total on each side of both markers).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' from bottom edge and up (piece measures approx. 23-25-27-30-33-36 cm / 9”-9¾”-10½”-11¾”-13”-14¼” from the middle and outwards and 3 inc remain on each side of both markers), bind off the middle 13-13-13-17-17-17 sts on needle for neck (i.e. between the 2 markers) and finish each part separately.
1ST PART (left side of piece seen from RS): Continue with garter st and inc as before. AT THE SAME TIME bind off 1 st at beg of the next 2 rows from neck.
After last inc by marker and after neck dec, piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' from the shoulder and down, approx. 25-27-29-32-35-38 cm / 9¾''-10 5/8''-11 3/8''-12½''-13¾''-15'' from the middle and outwards and 134-140-148-154-163-171 sts remain on needle.
On next row from WS continue as follows: bind off the first 68-71-73-74-76-77 sts along the side on jacket, work 32-32-34-36-38-40 sts (= sleeve), slip them on 1 stitch holder and bind off the last 34-37-41-44-49-54 sts on shoulder. Cut the thread.
2ND PART: Work as first part but reversed (dec from RS instead of WS).

Beg in the side on jacket and work in towards mid front and down towards bottom edge on front piece.
Cast on 67-67-67-66-65-63 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands). Work first row from RS: K 2 sts in first st and then K the rest of row = 68-68-68-67-66-64 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker in 2nd st at beg of row (seen from RS). Turn and K row from WS.
Then work in garter st back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of st with marker – READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Repeat inc every other row (i.e. on every row from RS), 32-35-39-43-48-53 more times (= 33-36-40-44-49-54 inc in total) = 134-140-148-155-164-172 sts on needle.
On next row from RS after last inc, bind off the first 34-37-41-45-50-55 sts on needle (= bottom edge on front piece), work the remaining 100-103-107-110-114-117 sts on needle and cast on 17-17-17-21-21-21 new sts at the end of row for collar = 117-120-124-131-135-138 sts – insert 1 marker. Continue in garter st back and forth for band/collar AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st at end of every other row at the top by collar (i.e. at the end of every row from RS) until band/collar measures approx. 10-10-10-12-12-12 cm / 4”-4”-4”-4¾”-4¾”-4¾” from marker, then LOOSELY bind off.

Cast on and work as right but reversed. I.e. 1st row from WS and inc on every row from WS. Bind off in bottom edge from WS (instead of RS).

Sew seam mid back on back piece - sew edge to edge in front loop of outermost st to avoid a visible seam. Sew the shoulder seams. Sew collar tog mid back and sew collar to neckline at the back of neck.

Insert 1 marker – now measure piece from here. Work back and forth in garter st until sleeve measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'' from marker. Then work in stockinette st back and forth on needle. AT THE SAME TIME when sleeve measures 7 cm / 2¾'' from marker, dec 1 st in each side.

Then work in garter st back and forth for 5 cm / 2'' before loosely binding off. Sleeve measures approx. 49-49-47-45-43-41 cm / 19¼”-19¼”-18½”-17¾”-17”-16 1/8” from marker.
