Back. Starting at bottom, with steel needles cast on 130 sts and work in ribbing of k 2, p 2, for 2½ inches. On next row starting with k 2 at beginning of row, change to No. 3 needles and work as follows: 1st row: K 1 and p 1 in 1st st (thus increasing 1 st), * k 1, p 2 together (1 st decreased), p 2, p 2 together, k 1 and p 1 in next st (thus increasing 1 st), repeat from * across to within 2 sts from end of row, then k 1 and p 1 in next st, k 1 (115 sts). 2nd row: * P 1, k 1, p 1, k 4, repeat from * across, ending row with p 1, k 1, p 1. 3rd row: * K 1, p 1, k 1, p 4, repeat from * across, ending row with k 1, p 1, k 1. Repeat the last 2 rows alternately until work measures 9 inches from top of waistband.
To Shape Yoke and Armholes: 1st row: With right side of work toward you (the side with the wide p-stripes is right side of work), bind off 7 sts and work across first 45 sts in pattern. Then p the next 11 sts (these are center 11 sts of yoke which are worked in stockinette st hereafter). Continue in pattern to end of row. 2nd row: Bind off 7 sts and work in pattern across to within center 11 sts, then k these 11 sts, and work in pattern to end of row (101 sts). Work 2 more rows in pattern, decreasing 1 st at both ends of each row (97 sts). 4th row: Work in pattern across first 36 sts, then p the next 25 sts, continue in pattern to end of row, decreasing last st. 5th row: Work in pattern across to within center 25 sts, then k these 25 sts and work in pattern to end of row, decreasing last st. Work 2 more rows in pattern, decreasing 1 st at both ends of each row. 8th row: Work in pattern across first 26 sts, then p the next 39 sts, continue in pattern to end of row (91 sts). Work 3 rows in pattern. Then on next, and every 4th row thereafter, change 7 sts to stockinette st on each side of stockinette st to widen yoke, hereafter keeping armhole edges straight, until all sts are in yoke pattern (stockinette st). Then work in stockinette st straight until work measures 6 inches from 1st row of arm- hole shaping. Then to shape shoulders, bind off 6 sts at beginning of each of next 10 rows. Bind off remaining 31 sts for back of neck.
Right Front. Starting at bottom, with steel needles cast on 82 sts and work as for back to armhole shaping (73 sts on needle). Shape armhole as for back, keeping front edge straight (61 sts remain). Next row: With right side of work toward you, k 1, p 1, k 1, p 11 (thus starting yoke pattern), then work in pattern to end of row, hereafter keeping armhole edge straight. Following row: Work in pattern across to within 14 sts from end of row, then k 11, p 1, k 1, p 1. Work 2 more rows in pattern. Next row: K 1, p 1, k 1, p 18. Work in pattern across. Work next 3 rows in pattern. Continue in this manner, changing the next 7 sts into yoke pattern on every 4th row as for back until all sts (excepting the 3 sts at center front edge) are in stockinette st. Work in stockinette st straight until yoke measures 4½ inches deep at center front edge. Then to shape neck, starting at center front edge, bind off first 7 sts and p across. Hereafter work in stockinette st, decreasing 1 st at neck edge every row (keeping armhole edge straight). At the same time, when armhole measures same as armhole of back, shape shoulders by binding off 6 sts at shoulder edge every other row, continuing with the decreases at neck edge, until all sts are worked off.
Left Front. Work to correspond with right front.
Sleeves. Starting at wrist, with steel needles cast on 66 sts and work in ribbing of k 2, p 2, for 4 inches. Then change to No. 3 needles and work in pattern as for back until work measures 2 inches from top of band (59 sts).
Continue in pattern increasing 1 st at both ends of every 5th row and starting a new stripe at both sides when necessary to keep in pattern, until there are 109 sts on needle. Work straight in pattern until sleeve measures 20 inches. To shape top of sleeves, bind off 8 sts at beginning of each of next 2 rows. Then decrease 1 st at end of every row until 40 sts remain. Bind off remaining sts.
After all pieces have been blocked, sew up underarm and shoulder seams. Sew up sleeve seams and sew sleeves in, folding the extra fullness into a box pleat at top of sleeve.
Edge Trimming. Work an edging along right front edge, around neckline and down left front edge as follows: 1st row: With right side of work toward you, starting at lower corner of right front edge, with double strand of green yarn and crochet hook, work 2 s c in corner st (making s c over the first rib of band), then ch 2, * leave about ½ inch sp on ribbing and make 2 s c in one st as before, repeat from * along front edge, making s c's over the first stripe along edge on body of blouse (being careful to keep work straight and even). In corner st at neck, make 2 s c, ch 2, 2 s c. Work in same manner around neck edge (holding work in) and down left front. Break off. 2nd row: Attach same yarn to first s c at lower corner of right front, * make 2 s c in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, repeat from * around, making the usual 2 s c, ch 2, 2 s c at corners of neck edge. Break off. 3rd row: Work as for 2nd row, making 4 s c in each corner ch-2 at neck edge. Fasten and break off.
Sew buttons on left front at equal distances apart. For buttonholes, use the ch-2 sps of right front.
Embroidery on Yoke. With needle and basting thread, mark outline of stem (as in diagram) over entire yoke of jacket. Then work stems and leaves with green, using outline stitch for stems, loop stitch for loop leaves and single stitch for line leaves. Make cross stitches for flowers, using 1 color for each group. Make a yellow single stitch in center of each loop leaf.
Heart Pocket. Starting at bottom, cast on 3 sts. 1st row: K 1, p 1, k 1. 2nd row: K 1 and p 1 in first st (1 st increased), k 1, p 1 and k 1 in last st (another increase). There will be 5 sts on needle. 3rd row: P 1, k 1, p 1, k 1, p 1. 4th row: P 1 and k 1 in first st (1 increase), p 1, k 1, p 1, k 1 and p 1 in last st (7 sts on needle). Continue in pattern as for jacket, increasing 1 st at both ends of every other row until there are 25 sts on needle. Then work without increasing for 1 inch. Then decrease 1 st at both ends of every other row until 19 sts remain. Next row: Work 2 sts together (1 st decreased), work in pattern across next 7 sts, then sl 1, k 1, pass sl st over k st, continue in pattern across, decreasing last st.
Work over these last 8 sts only, decreasing 1 st at both ends of each row until 4 sts remain. Bind these off. Attach thread to center of heart and work over the remaining 8 sts to correspond. Place pocket in position and work a row of blanket sts around it with same color as for edging.
