the description box below this video

please don't forget to visit my website

so we'll link that net so you can take a

look of the reading instructions for

this little jacket you will need 80

grams of what it's called DK weight yarn

8 flies we can need the body of the

jacket we will start here on the color

we will increase this beautiful Raglan

increases until we get to the armhole

and then we will separate the sleeves

and need the rest of of the body for

this part you can use straight needles

I'm using us 7 size or four point five

millimeters but for the sleeves we are

going to need circular needles also four

point five millimeters or us seven size

60 centimeters long or 23 inches then

you will use the Anita take these three

needle and eight markers you can make

the markers yourself if you prefer so

let's get started

first we need to cast on 40 stitches

you

you

you

now we are going to knit four rows just

net across the row

when you get to the last stitch just net

and turn your work remember we are

meaning flat not in the round second row

also net across from the first to the

last stitch and again when you get to

the last stitch of the second row match

that one and now we're going to knit

third and fourth grows and ace will form

the little neck of the jacket and then

we're going to split stitches to form

the front right front right sleeve back

left sleeve and left front so we need to

pull rows in garter stitch this is the

right side of the work where you see

this beautiful edge and the yarn from

the cast on is on the left hand now we

are going to knit three stitches and

place one marker these will create this

garter edge so the jacket does not curl

[Music]

now we need for we have here seven in

total and here we are going to knit

front and back so we create a new stitch

that is an increase you knit the stitch

as usual and keeping the loop here on

this middle you are going to need this

stitch through the back loop so you

create two stitches of one now we're

going to place another marker and these

will be the right front of the jacket

and here we're going to make another

increase same way with a kfb which is

knit front and back now when it three

stitches and we make another increase

knit front and back

and we place another marker this will be

the right sleep now we make another

increase knit front and back and we need

12 stitches

[Music]

and here we make another increase in it

turned back and place another marker so

this is the back of the jacket here we

make another increase knit front and

back we need three stitches two three

we make my mother increase made don't

come back so we have the left sleeve we

place another marker this is the left

front we will make another increase make

a change back take out of night

don't split the jar and now we need on

to the last three stitches and we place

last marker to separate the Garter

stitch okay

so we have here three

nine and we have here three nine nine

stitches for every front part now we

have the shoulder or the C seven seven

and here is the back 16 so from now on

we're going to make one increase row

exactly the same way we did it

and one breast row this will be a purl

row we will purl across the world from

the first to the last stitch and it's

called the rest draw because we are not

going to make any increase here we will

just be curling but except for the three

the first three stitches and the last

three stitches as I said this is the

Garter edge so we are going to knit

these three stitches in every row slip

the marker and then four

every time you get to the marker you

Justin

put it on the other two right honey and

keep pouring

[Music]

now we don't you touch to the last three

stitches slip the marker and meet

straight

okay now we're going to make another

increase roll and what we will be doing

thanks Annette the first three stitches

slip the marker knit

all until you get one stitch before the

marker and here we are going to make the

increase knit back in front slip the

marker and make another increase mesh

that confront keeping it in

until there is just one stitch before

the marker and make another increase

knit back and front slip the marker

another increase same way Nate back and

front or kfb what's called the

approbation now you need all the

stitches back

until one stitch before the marker and

here we make another increase knit and

round slip the marker make another

increase knit back and front nature

until there is just one stitch before

the marker make it increase knit back

and front slip a marker make another

increase and keep knitting these two

markers are different just to show me

that I'm not going to do the same that I

do every time I hit marker which is the

increases it's just for the Garter edge

remember so you don't need to increase

anything there

and this will be a rest row so you miss

the first three you pour across without

increasing and the unit the last three

exactly as we did before so keep doing

this onto the piece measures around 3.5

inches or nine point seven centimeters

after knitting these goals well port

color you can make a buttonhole I did it

one to six rows below the color and to

create the bottom hole you just need to

do the following knit one and knit two

together

finish this general social and on the

following row we are going to cast on

one stitch there Philippe the marker and

now they're going to custom one stage

thank you sleep

and here we finish the row by Newton the

rest on the next row your need for three

stitches a solution

sweepa marker and there you have the

little whatnot okay I hope you enjoyed
