Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
All increases are made from the right side!
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 108 stitches) minus the bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 9.8.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 10th stitch. On the next row (the wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row = mid back. Start from the right side and knit 9-10-11-12-13-14 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 18-20-22-24-26-28 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 27-30-33-36-39-42 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 36-40-44-48-52-56 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 45-50-55-60-65-70 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl to end of row (band is worked in garter stitch). Then work YOKE as described in the text.

RAGLAN:
All increases made from the right side!
Increase to raglan in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 6 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs to leave holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. You increase a total of 8 stitches on each increase row.

PATTERN (applies to raglan line):
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES (top down):
Work buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = Knit from the right side until there are 3 stitches left on the row, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit the last stitch. On the next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
The first buttonhole is worked when the neck measures approx. 1½ cm. Then work the next 5-5-5-6-6-6 buttonholes with approx. 8-8½-9-8-8-8½ cm between each.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck, yoke and body are worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front, top down.
After the neck, you can work an elevation in the back of the neck for a better fit; the yoke will then be slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same front and back – see description in text. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 108-112-116-124-128-132 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Sky, Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH – read description above, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on the row, knit 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 3 cm – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – read description above.
Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 10-14-10-14-10-14 stitches evenly on row – read INCREASE TIP = 118-126-126-138-138-146 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Purl 1 row from the wrong side (bands are worked in garter stitch).
You can now work an ELEVATION in back of neck – read description above, or go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
Insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches): First marker thread is inserted after the first 25-26-27-28-29-30 stitches (= front piece), 2nd marker thread is inserted after the next 14-16-14-18-16-18 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker thread is inserted after the next 40-42-44-46-48-50 stitches (= back piece) and 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 14-16-14-18-16-18 stitches (= sleeve). There are 25-26-27-28-29-30 stitches left after the last marker thread (= front piece).
Continue with stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side increase to RAGLAN in each transition between body and sleeves – read description above. Continue increasing to raglan every 2nd row (i.e. every row from the right side) until you have increased a total of 22-25-28-30-33-35 times on each side of the 4 marker threads. After the last increase, there are 294-326-350-378-402-426 stitches on the needle.
Continue working without increasing until the piece measures 23-25-27-28-30-32 cm from the cast-on edge mid front, but to allow the row of holes to continue along the raglan line after the increases are finished, work A.1 in each transition between body and sleeves until the yoke is finished (the marker threads on the raglan line sit in the middle of A.1).
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Knit 51-55-58-63-68-73 stitches (= front piece), place the next 50-58-64-68-70-72 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 92-100-106-116-126-136 stitches (= back piece), place the next 50-58-64-68-70-72 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), and knit the remaining 51-55-58-63-68-73 stitches (= front piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 210-226-242-262-286-310 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side (first row from wrong side).
When the piece measures 23 cm from the division in all sizes, knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 42-42-46-50-54-62 stitches evenly on row – remember INCREASE TIP = 252-268-288-312-340-372 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. The next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on the row, purl 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 4 cm. Loosely cast off with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with size 4.5 mm needle. The jacket measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 50-58-64-68-70-72 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle or double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 58-66-74-78-82-86 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve and start the round here. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2-3-3-3-3-3 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-2½-2-2-1½-1½ cm a total of 10-13-16-17-18-19 times = 38-40-42-44-46-48 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 39-38-36-36-35-33 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 6-4-6-8-6-8 stitches evenly on round = 44-44-48-52-52-56 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 5 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with size 4.5 mm needles. The sleeve measures approx. 44-43-41-41-40-38 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons onto left band.
