EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge vertically = knit 2 rows.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). Decrease from right side when 3 stitches remain on row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together, knit last stitch. On next row knit yarn over to make holes.
Decrease first buttonhole when rib in neck measures approx. 1½-2 cm. Then decrease the next 5-5-5-5-6-6 buttonholes, approx. 9-9-9½-9½-8½-8½ cm between each.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 104 stitches), minus band stitches (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 10) = 9.4. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately approx. every 9th and 10th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES:
14-14-14½-14½-15-15 cm with powder pink.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with old pink.
2-2-2-2-2-2 cm with mustard.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with peach.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with light lavender.
Then work with denim blue until finished measurements.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased. On next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to make a hole. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. Increase 8 stitches in total on every increase row.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work yoke and body back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down. Work entire garment in stocking stitch with stripes and edges in rib.

YOKE:
Cast on 104-108-112-116-120-124 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4.5 mm with powder pink. Purl 1 row from wrong side.
Then work as follows from right side: Work 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above - * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until 7 stitches remain, knit 2 and finish with 5 band stitches on needle in garter stitch. Work rib like this for 4 cm – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – see explanation above. Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 10-14-18-18-14-18 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 114-122-130-134-134-142 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Purl 1 row from wrong side inside 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side.
Insert 4 marker threads in piece as follows (without working the stitches):
Insert first marker thread after the first 23-25-27-28-28-30 stitches (= front piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 16 stitches (= sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 36-40-44-46-46-50 stitches (= back piece), and insert 4th marker thread after the next 16 stitches (= sleeve), 23-25-27-28-28-30 stitches remain on round after last marker (= front piece).
Then work in stocking stitch and STRIPES with 5 band stitches in garter stitch, in each side towards mid front – AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side increase for RAGLAN in every transition between body and sleeves – read explanation above. Continue increase for raglan every other row (i.e. on every row from right side) until increase has been done 19-21-22-24-26-28 times in total on each side of the 4 marker threads. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After last increase there are 266-290-306-326-342-366 stitches on row and piece measures approx. 23-25-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge mid front. If this measurements are not correct, continue to work without increases until piece has correct measurement. Work next row as follows from right side:
Work 44-47-50-54-57-62 stitches as before (= front piece), slip the next 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 78-84-90-98-104-114 stitches as before (= back piece), slip the next 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the 44-47-50-54-57-62 stitches as before (= front piece). Then finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 182-194-210-226-242-262 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and stripes with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side (work first row from wrong side). When piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm from division, knit 1 row from right side while increasing 34-38-42-42-46-50 stitches evenly - remember INCREASE TIP = 216-232-252-268-288-312 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work next row as follows from wrong side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* until 7 stitches remain on needle, purl 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 4 cm. Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use circular needle size 5.5 mm. Jacket measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece double pointed needles or a short circular needle size 5.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches cast on in the side under sleeve = 58-64-68-70-74-76 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve and begin round here. Work in stocking stitch and continue with stripes as on body. When piece measures 31-30-29-27-26-24 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), knit 1 round while increasing 10-12-12-14-14-12 stitches evenly = 68-76-80-84-88-88 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. Sleeve measures approx. 35-34-33-31-30-28 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons on to left front piece.
