Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

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

MEASURING TIP:
Due to the weight of the yarn and the fact that you are working in garter stitch, always measure the piece when holding it up or the garment will be too long when worn.

-------------------------------------------------------

START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The front pieces are worked first, back and forth with circular needle. They are worked bottom up and new stitches are cast on for the sleeves in the sides. Then the front pieces are put together and you continue over the back piece from the top down. Using this method, there are no shoulder or sleeve seams. The piece is sewn together to finish, under the sleeves and down the sides.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 26-28-30-33-35-38 stitches with circular needle size 10 mm and Eskimo. Work GARTER STITCH – read description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 32-34-34-36-36-38 cm - read MEASURING TIP, cast on 28-27-26-25-24-22 new stitches at the end of the next row from the right side = 54-55-56-58-59-60 stitches. Continue with garter stitch until the piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm – adjust so that the next row is worked from the wrong side. Insert 1 marker on this row – this will be used to measure the length of the back piece.
On the next row (from the right side) place the outermost 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches towards mid front on a thread for collar, but to avoid cutting the strand you are using, work the stitches before placing them on the thread = 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches left on needle for shoulder, work to end of row. Knit 3 rows back and forth over these stitches (the last row is worked from the wrong side) and then place these 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches on 1 thread. Work collar and then left front piece as described below.

COLLAR RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Place the 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches from the thread mid front back on the needle. Start from the wrong side and knit 1 row. Then work garter stitch back and forth as follows: * Work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches, work 1 ridge back and forth over the first 7-7-7-9-9-9 stitches *, work from *-* until the collar measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm at the narrowest part, but finish after 1 knitted row from the wrong side over all stitches. Cast off with knit from the right side or place the stitches on 1 thread.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 26-28-30-33-35-38 stitches with circular needle size 10 mm and work garter stitch. When the piece measures 32-34-34-36-36-38 cm cast on 28-27-26-25-24-22 new stitches at the end of the next row from the wrong side = 54-55-56-58-59-60 stitches. Continue with garter stitch until the piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm – adjust so that the next row is from the wrong side. Insert 1 marker on this row – this will be used to measure the length of the back piece. Knit 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches from the right side and place the remaining 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches towards mid front on 1 thread for collar. Knit 3 rows over these 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches (the last row is worked from the wrong side) and then place the stitches on a thread. Work collar and then back piece as described below.

COLLAR LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Place the 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches from the thread mid front back on the needle. Start from the right side and knit 1 row. Then work garter stitch back and forth as follows from the wrong side: * Work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches, work 1 ridge back and forth over the first 7-7-7-9-9-9 stitches *, work from *-* until the collar measures 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm at the narrowest, but finish after 1 knitted row from the wrong side over all stitches. Cast off with knit from the right side or place the stitches on 1 thread.

BACK PIECE:
Start from the right side and knit over the 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches from the left front piece, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= neck at back) and knit over the 44-45-46-46-47-48 stitches from the right front piece = 96-98-100-102-104-106 stitches on needle. Work garter stitch back and forth until the piece measures 28-28-30-30-32-32 cm from the markers inserted on the shoulders – remember MEASURING TIP. Cast off 28-27-26-25-24-22 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows = 40-44-48-52-56-62 stitches left on needle for the back piece. Continue with garter stitch until the piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the markers on the shoulders – adjust so that the front and back pieces are of equal length. Then loosely cast off from the right side.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the piece double at the markers on the shoulders with the wrong side on the inside. Sew under arm and side seams in one go – the side seams are sewn in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat, but stop when you have 10 cm left (= split).
Sew the collar together mid back inside the cast off edge - make sure the seam is towards the wrong side when the collar is folded down. If the stitches are on threads, sew the stitches together with grafting stitches.
Sew the collar to the neck at the back.
