EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.2). Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.2 (= 8 stitches increased on row): Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to make a hole. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

EYELET ROW:
Increase for raglan on front pieces and back piece is finished before increase on sleeves. To continue the eyelet row made of increased inside A.2 work a lace pattern (A.3/A.4) down the body inside A.2 as follows:
Work A.3 when 2 stitches remain before A.2 on left front piece, and when 2 stitches remain before the last repetition of A.2 on back piece.
Work A.4 after the first repetition A.2 on back piece and after A.2 on right front piece.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch inside A.2 on front pieces and on back piece (= 4 stitches increased on row). On next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to make a hole. For every increase number of stitches between the 2 repetitions of A.2 on back piece and between A.2 and the 5 band stitches on front pieces increase.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 217 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 31) = 6.7.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately every 6th and 7th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked. Repeat in the other side (= 4 stitches decreased on row).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

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 6, approx. 7½-8-8½-8½-9-9½ cm = 3”-3 1/8”-3 1/4”-3 1/4”-3 1/2”-3 3/4” between each.

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 149-149-157-157-165-165 stitches (including 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 with Muskat. Purl 1 row from wrong side, then work rib as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH – read explanation above, knit 1, A.1 (choose diagram for your size) over the first 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, (purl 2/knit 2) over the next 8 stitches, purl 2, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, (purl 2/knit 2) over the next 8 stitches, purl 2, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, 5 band stitches in garter stitches. Continue back and forth like this until A.1 has been worked vertically = 145-145-153-153-161-161 stitches. Remember BUTTONHOLES - read explanation above.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6. Now work pattern as follows:
5 band stitches in garter stitch, knit 1, make 1 yarn over, A.2 (choose diagram for your size) over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches (= left front piece), make 1 yarn over, knit 12, make 1 yarn over (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch on back piece), make 1 yarn over, A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches (= back piece), make 1 yarn over, knit 12, make 1 yarn over (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 5 band stitches in garter stitch (= right front piece). 8 stitches have been increased for RAGLAN - read explanation above. Continue pattern back and forth like this and increase every other row 20-24-26-30-35-38 times in total = 305-337-361-393-441-465 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! Continue with the same increase for raglan on sleeves 4-4-5-3-0-1 more times (= 24-28-31-33-35-39 increases in total on sleeve). On front pieces and back piece now work pattern A.3 and A.4, to continue with a EYELET ROW – read explanation above, on every other row as before without increases. The remaining stitches are worked in pattern as before. When all increases are done there are 321-353-381-405-441-469 stitches on row.
Piece measures approx. 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm = 8 1/4”-9”-9 3/4”-10 5/8”-11 3/8”-12 1/4” from cast-on edge and down mid front.
Work next row from wrong side as follows: Work the first 53-57-61-65-72-75 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), work the next 95-103-111-119-133-139 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), work the remaining 53-57-61-65-72-75 stitches on needle (= front piece). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 217-233-253-269-301-317 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under the sleeves (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Move the marker thread upwards when working.
Continue pattern back and forth as before, i.e. work as follows (from right side):
5 band stitches in garter stitch, stockinette stitch until A.2, make 1 yarn over, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, stockinette stitch over the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches and decrease at the same time 1 stitch on each side of marker thread in the side – read DECREASE TIP-1, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, make 1 yarn over, stockinette stitch until next repetition A.2, make 1 yarn over, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, stockinette stitch over the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches and decrease at the same time 1 stitch on each side of marker thread – remember DECREASE TIP-1, A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, make 1 yarn over, stockinette stitch until 5 stitches remain, 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
1 stitch has been increased inside A.2 on front pieces and back piece – read INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches increased), and 1 stitch has been decreased on each side of marker thread in each side (= 4 stitches decreased). I.e. number of stitches will be constant. Continue decrease and increase like this on every other row 31-31-34-34-37-38 times in total, until entire pattern has been decreased in the side. When stitches are decreased in the side, work as many stitches of the pattern that fit. I.e. when there is no room to work decrease and yarn over in lace pattern in A.2, work stockinette stitch over these stitches.
When entire pattern in the side has been decreased, piece measures approx. 22-22-24-24-26-27 cm = 8 3/4”-8 3/4”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-10 1/4”-10 5/8” from division. Now work stockinette stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 28 cm = 11” from division (= approx. 6-6-4-4-2-1 cm = 2 3/8”-2 3/8”-1 1/2”-1 1/2”-3/4”-3/8” with stockinette stitch after pattern in the side). Now increase 31-35-39-39-43-47 stitches evenly = 248-268-292-308-344-364 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work rib as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, (knit 2/purl 2) until 7 stitches remain on row, knit 2, 5 band stitches in garter stitch. When rib measures 4 cm = 1 1/2”, bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size when binding off. Jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm = 22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4"-26" from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece back on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on in the side under sleeve = 68-76-84-88-94-104 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast-on (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When sleeve measures 4-4-4-3-3-2 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-1 1/2”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-3/4”, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread under sleeves - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 0-4-2-1½-1-1 cm = 0”-1 1/2”-3/4”-1/2”-3/8”-3/8” 1-4-7-7-9-12 times in total (only 1 decrease in size S) = 66-68-70-74-76-80 stitches. When sleeve measures 29-28-26-25-23-22 cm = 11 3/8”-11”-10 1/4”-9 3/4”-9”-8 3/4”, increase 6-8-6-6-8-8 stitches evenly on round = 72-76-76-80-84-88 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) in the round for 3 cm = 1 1/8”. Bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size when binding off. Sleeve measures approx. 32-31-29-28-26-25 cm = 12 1/2”-12 1/4”-11 3/8”-11”-10 1/4”-9 3/4”. Work another sleeve the same way.
