INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

ELEVATION:
Start from the right side and knit the first 51-55-60-60-64-69 stitches, insert one marker (= mid back – NOTE: in M + XXL insert the marker in the next stitch, in the other sizes insert the marker before the next stitch).
Knit the next 8-9-10-10-10-11 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit back 16-19-20-20-21-22 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 24-29-30-30-32-33 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 32-39-40-40-43-44 stitches back, turn, tighten the strand and knit 40-51-50-50-56-55 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 48-62-60-60-68-66 stitches back, turn, tighten the strand and knit to end of row. Knit 1 row back over all stitches from the wrong side.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size (for diagram A.2).

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the row (e.g. 94 stitches), minus the bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 8) = 10.5. In this example, increase alternately after approx. every 10th and 11th stitch. Do not increase over the bands.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 4 stitches before the stitch with the marker thread, knit 2 together, A.5 (= 5 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLE:
The first buttonhole is worked on the first row from the right side after the garter stitch edge in the neck, then work the next 5-5-5-6-6-6 buttonholes with approx. 9-9-9-8-8-8 cm between each.
Decrease to buttonhole on the right band as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left on the row (seen from the right side), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 1. On the next row knit the yarn over so that there is a hole.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front. It is worked top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 94-98-102-106-112-118 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 4.5 mm and 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 8-13-18-14-17-20 stitches evenly on row – read INCREASE TIP = 102-111-120-120-129-138 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.
For a better fit, you can now work a small ELEVATION at the back of the neck – see description above. When the elevation has been completed, change to circular needle size 5 mm. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 (= 7 stitches) *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on the row (= 10-11-12-12-13-14 repeats of 9 stitches), work A.1 (= 2 stitches) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch – remember BUTTONHOLE on the right band – see description above. Continue the pattern in this way and increase as shown in the diagram. When A.1/A.2 has been completed 1 time in height, there are 252-276-300-324-350-376 stitches on the row. Work 1-3-7-1-5-1 rows stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side and, at the same time, increase 1-5-9-1-3-1 stitches evenly on the first row = 253-281-309-325-353-377 stitches. The piece now measures approx. 20-21-23-25-27-29 cm from the cast-on edge (measured mid front). (If the measurements do not match, you can continue working stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front until the piece is the right length).
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work the first 41-44-48-51-56-61 stitches in garter stitch and stocking stitch as before (= left front piece), place the next 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches on 1 thread (= left sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve), work the next 71-77-85-91-101-111 stitches in stocking stitch as before (= back piece), place the next 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches on 1 thread (= right sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve) and work the remaining 41-44-48-51-56-61 stitches in stocking stitch and garter stitch as before (= right front piece). The body and sleeves are now finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 167-179-195-211-231-251 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the 45th-48th-52nd-56th-61st-66th stitch in from each side (= 77-83-91-99-109-119 stitches between the stitches with the marker threads on the back piece). Work stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME on the next row from the right side, work A.3 over the middle 5 stitches in each side (i.e. over the stitches with the marker thread + 2 stitches on either side of these). Continue with stocking stitch, A.3 in the sides and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front and increase on the 7th and 15th row in diagram A.3 (= every 8th row in the diagram) until the piece measures 31-32-32-32-32-32 cm from where the piece was divided. You should now have increased approx. 8 times in each side = approx. 199-211-227-243-263-283 stitches on the row. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.4A until there are 6 stitches left on the row, work A.4B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. When A.4 has been completed in height, cast off with knit from the right side. To prevent a tight cast-off edge, you can use a larger needle or make 1 yarn over which is cast off after approx. every 4th stitch. The jacket measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches from the thread on double pointed needles size 5 mm and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 7-7-7-9-9-9 stitches cast on under the sleeve (= 57-65-71-75-79-81 stitches). Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch under the sleeve. The start of the round is after the 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round, but over the middle 5 stitches under the sleeve (= the stitch with the marker thread + 2 stitches on each side of this stitch) work A.5. When the piece measures 3 cm in all sizes, decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 8th-5th-4th-3rd-3rd-2nd round a total of 6-9-11-11-11-10 times = 45-47-49-53-57-61 stitches. When the piece measures 22-22-21-19-17-15 cm from the transition between yoke and sleeve, insert 3 marker threads in the piece (without working the stitches) as follows: Insert the 1st marker thread at the beginning of the round, insert the 2nd marker thread after 15-16-17-18-19-21 stitches, insert the 3rd marker thread after 15-16-16-18-19-20 stitches = 15-15-16-17-19-20 stitches left on the round after the 3rd marker thread. On the next round, increase 1 stitch after each marker thread by making 1 yarn over (= 3 stitches increased – the yarn overs are knitted twisted on the next round to prevent holes).
Increase in this way every 4th round a total of 6 times = 63-65-67-71-75-79 stitches on the needle. Continue working stocking stitch and A.5 mid under the sleeve until the piece measures 31-31-30-28-26-24 cm from the transition between yoke and sleeve. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Work A.4A in the round and, at the same time, decrease 1 stitch on the first round = 62-64-66-70-74-78 stitches. When A.4A has been completed, cast off with knit. To avoid a tight cast-off edge, you can use a bigger needle or make 1 yarn over which is cast off after approx. every 4th stitch. The sleeve measures approx. 35-35-34-32-30-28 cm from the transition between yoke and sleeve. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons onto the left band.
