Anker’s Jacket is worked back and forth from the top down on a circular needle. The yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases followed by classic raglan increases. The button bands are knitted at the end, after picking up stitches at the front edges.

Size guide
Anker’s Jacket is designed to have approx. 10 cm [4 inches] of positive ease in the smaller sizes and approx. 20 cm [7¾ inches] in the larger sizes. The sizes 0-3 months (3-6 months) 6-9 months (9-12 months) 1-2 years (2-3 years) 3-4 years (4-5 years) 5-6 years (6-7 years) 7-8 years (8-9 years) 9-10 years (10-12 years) are designed to fit a chest circumference of approx. 42 (45) 47 (49) 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (77) cm [16½ (17¾) 18½ (19¼) 20¾ (21¼) 22 (22½) 23¼ (24½) 25¼ (26¾) 28¼ (30¼) inches].

The measurements for the finished garment are listed on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the sweater is knitted in the correct gauge). If you/the recipient measures 57 cm [22½ inches] around the chest, you should knit a size 4-5 years. Size 4-5 years has a chest circumference of 74 cm [29¼ inches] which will, in this example, give 17 cm [6¾ inches] of positive ease.
If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the lengths to the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is short/taller than average.
