Jacket now measures approx. 93-93-111-111-130-130 cm / 36½"-36½"-43 3/4"-43 3/4"-51½"-51½" along the straight edge at the top and approx. 38 cm / 15'' from bottom edge and up on the longest.

YOKE:
Pick up from RS 194-194-236-236-274-274 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Delight, along the straight edge at the top of piece with fans - pick up approx. 1 st in every st (if more or fewer sts have been picked up, inc/dec to correct no of sts on 1st row from WS).
K 1 row from WS. K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME dec 26-10-34-14-30-6 sts evenly = 168-184-202-222-244-268 sts. Work in GARTER ST back and forth on needle - see explanation above, until 2-4-6-6-6-6 ridges in total have been worked after fans (piece now measures approx. 39-40-41-41-41-41 cm / 15 1/4"-15 3/4"-16 1/8"-16 1/8"-16 1/8"-16 1/8" from bottom edge on the longest).

Insert 1 marker 33-35-39-43-47-51 sts in from each side (= 64-70-76-84-92-102 sts between markers on back piece).
Now divide the piece at both markers and work front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 64-70-76-84-92-102 sts.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (1st row = RS) while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row casting on 1 new st in each side (= edge st for seam) = 66-72-78-86-94-104 sts (work edge st in garter st). On next row from RS, beg inc for sleeves and cast on 2 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows.
Repeat inc with 2 sts at the end of every row in each side 3 more times (= 4 inc in total in each side), then cast on 20-20-20-18-18-16 sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 122-128-134-138-146-152 sts – NOTE: Work the inc sts in the pattern.
After last inc continue pattern as before but work the outermost 5 sts in each side in garter st (= sleeve edges).
When piece measures 24-25-26-28-30-32 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4"-12½" from marker where piece was divided, slip sts at beg of every row in each side on 1 stitch holder for diagonal shoulder as follows: Slip 5 sts on to holder 3 times in total (work sts before slipping them on holder to avoid cutting the thread) and slip 33-35-37-39-43-45 sts on to holder 1 time in each side – NOTE: Slip 1st st on left needle after the sts that have been slipped on 1 stitch holder, tighten yarn, and continue to work. This is done to avoid big holes in the transitions.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 25-26-27-29-31-33 cm / 9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13" from where piece was divided, bind off the middle 22-24-26-26-26-28 sts for neck and finish each shoulder/sleeve separately.
Then bind off 2 sts on next row from neck.
When all sts have been bind off for neck and slipped on 1 stitch holder for diagonal shoulder, piece measures approx. 27-28-29-31-33-35 cm / 10 5/8"-11"-11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13"-13 3/4" from marker where piece was divided and up to shoulder on the longest and approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' from bottom edge on the longest.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 33-35-39-43-47-51 sts.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (1st row = RS) with 1 edge st in garter st in each side while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row casting on 1 new st at the end of row towards the side (= edge st for seam) = 34-36-40-44-48-52 sts.
On next row from RS beg inc for sleeve and cast on new sts at the end of every row from RS as on back piece = 62-64-68-70-74-76 sts.
Continue pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st towards mid front and 5 edge sts in garter st towards the side (= sleeve edge).
When piece measures 21-22-23-24-26-28 cm / 8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9½"-10 1/4"-11" from marker where piece was divided (jacket measures approx. 60-62-64-65-67-69 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' from bottom edge on the longest), slip the outermost 6-6-8-8-8-8 sts on 1 stitch holder for neck (work the sts before slipping them on the stitch holder).
Continue to bind off for neck at the beg of every row from mid front as follows: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 2 times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 24-25-26-28-30-32 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4"-12½" – adjust according to back piece, slip sts on 1 stitch holder for diagonal shoulder from the side as on back piece.
When all sts have been bind off for neck and slipped on 1 stitch holder, piece measures approx. 27-28-29-31-33-35 cm / 10 5/8"-11"-11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13"-13 3/4" from marker where piece was divided and up to shoulder and approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' from bottom edge on the longest.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right but reversed, i.e. work 1st row from RS but cast on 1 new st at beg of 1st row (instead of end of 1st row = edge st for seam). And cast on new sts for sleeve at the end of every row from WS (instead of every row from RS).

ASSEMBLY:
Slip the 48-50-52-54-58-60 sts from stitch holder on one shoulder on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work as follows: K 1 row from RS - NOTE: To avoid holes in every transition where sts were slipped on stitch holder, pick up the thread between the 2 sts in the transition and K tog with 1st st on left needle.
On next row loosely bind off all sts with K from WS. Repeat the same way along the 3 other shoulders.
Sew shoulder seams inside bind off edge - make sure the seam is not tight. Sew underarm and side seams in one inside 1 edge st.

LEFT BAND:
Cast on 5 sts on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Delight.
K 1 row (= RS) and turn piece. Work next row as follows (from WS): Pick up the outermost st in garter st at the neck line on left front piece (with WS towards you), work first st on left needle, pass the new st from left front piece over this st and K the rest of row, turn piece, K 1 row over all sts, turn piece.
Then work as follows: * Pick up next st in garter st at the edge of left front piece (with WS towards you), work first st on left needle, pass the new st over and K the rest of row, turn piece, K 1 row over all sts, turn piece *, repeat these 2 rows from *-* until 1 st has been picked up in approx. every st in garter st along the entire front edge on jacket.

RIGHT BAND:
Work as left but beg at the bottom of right front piece (with WS towards you). Dec in addition for 3-3-3-3-4-4 buttonholes on right band (dec for last buttonhole on neck edge).
1 buttonhole = K tog third and fourth st from edge and make 1 YO.
Place bottom buttonhole in the transition between fans and lace pattern and upper buttonhole approx. 7-7-8-8-7-7 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-2 3/4"-2 3/4" from neck line. Distribute the 1-1-1-1-2-2 remaining buttonholes evenly between upper and bottom buttonhole.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from RS approx. 94 to 116 sts around the neck (including sts on stitch holders at the front and also pick up sts over bands) on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Delight. Work in GARTER ST back and forth on needle.
When 2 ridges have been worked, dec for last buttonhole over the other buttonholes on right band.
Continue to work until neck edge measures approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' and then loosely bind off with K from WS.
Sew the buttons on to left front piece.
