JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 230-230-266-266-302-302 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Alpaca Bouclé. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work in stocking st with 2 edge sts in garter st on each side until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work until piece measures 34-35-36-36-37-38 cm. On next row from RS, work as before over the first 81-81-93-93-105-105 sts, 7 sts in garter st, 54-54-66-66-78-78 sts in stocking st, 7 sts in garter st and work as before over the last 81-81-93-93-105-105 sts. On WS work as before with 7 sts in garter st as from RS. On next row from RS cast off the middle of the 7 sts in garter st for armholes and work each part separately to make an opening for armholes.

LEFT FRONT PIECE: Keep the first 84-84-96-96-108-108 sts on needle and slip the remaining 144-144-168-168-192-192 sts on a stitch holder. Work in stocking st with 3 sts in garter st towards armhole and 2 edge sts in garter st towards mid front. Work until piece measures 51-53-55-56-58-60 cm.
Slip sts on a stitch holder and work right front piece.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE: Slip the outermost 84-84-96-96-108-108 sts back on needle, work as left front piece. Make sure to work right front piece the same length as left front piece. Slip sts on 1 stitch holder and work back piece.

Slip all three parts back on needle and work as follows: Stocking st with 2 edge sts in garter st over the first 81-81-93-93-105-105 sts, 3 sts in garter st, cast on 1 new st, 3 sts in garter st, stocking st over 54-54-66-66-78-78 sts, 3 sts in garter st, cast on 1 new st, 3 sts in garter st, stocking st and 2 edge sts in garter st over the last 81-81-93-93-105-105 sts.
