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):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
All dec are done from RS! Dec inside 1 st K and 1 edge st in garter st.
Dec as follows when 2 sts remain before 1 K st and 1 edge st in garter st: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after 1 st in garter st and K 1: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

INCREASE TIP:
All inc are done from RS.
Inc inside 1 edge st in garter st and 1 K by making 1 YO. On next row P YO twisted to avoid holes.

MEASURING TIP-1 (applies to front and back piece):
To get the right proportions on jacket length measurements are done when piece is flat. Because of the weight of the yarn the piece will be approx. 10 cm / 4'' longer than measurements in chart.

MEASURING TIP-2 (applies to sleeve):
Because of the weight of the yarn length measurements are done when piece is held up.

BUTTONHOLES:
bind off for buttonholes on right front piece (from RS): Work 3 sts, bind off 2 sts for buttonhole, work the rest of row. On next row cast on 2 new sts over the bind off sts.

BACK PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts.
Cast on 60-64-70-76-82-88 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with Andes. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 and work in stockinette st with 5 sts in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 18 cm / 7'', cast on 1 edge st in each side = 62-66-72-78-84-90 sts. Continue in stockinette st with 1 edge sts in garter st in each side. When piece measures 19 cm / 7½'', dec 1 st in each side (= 2 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP and MEASURING TIP-1! Dec in each side every 7-7-8-8-8-8 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3"-3"-3" a total of 6 times = 50-54-60-66-72-78 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm / 19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21'', work as follows: Work A.1 over all sts with 1 edge st in garter st in each side (edge st continues in garter st). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work piece until finished measurements in reversed stockinette st (edge st in garter st). When piece measures 60-61-62-63-64-65 cm / 23½"-24"-24½"-24 3/4"-25 1/4"-25½", bind off 1 edge st in each side = 48-52-58-64-70-76 sts. When piece measures 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm / 30''-30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8'', bind off the middle 14-14-14-16-16-16 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
