JUMPER:
Knitting tension: 24 sts x 32 rows on needle size 3mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm

Rib: *K3, P3*, repeat from *-*.

Pattern: See diagrams M.1. Repeat the diagram until finished measurements. Note! The pattern is knitted in stocking sts but the “single” rows, i.e. rows 1, 8, 15 etc = 2 rounds of garter sts. I.e. knit 2 rounds garters sts as follows: knit 1 round, purl 1 round.

Decreasing tips (applies to raglan):
Dec as follows from the right side: Start and finish the row with K2 tog. By the 3 other marking threads dec as follows (start 3 sts before marking thread): K2 tog, K2, slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso.
Dec as follows from the wrong side: Start and finish the row with P2 tog. By the 3 other marking threads dec as follows (start 3 sts before marking thread): P2 tog into back of st, P2, P2 tog.

Front and back piece: Cast on 126-138-156 (168-186) sts on circular needle size 2.5mm with camel. Knit 3 cm Rib. Change to needle size 3mm and knit 1 round with camel. Continue in stripes according to M.1 – see explanation above. When piece measures approx 16-17-20 (23-25) cm (adjust so that there is 1 round left of a whole stripe) knit next round as follows: Cast off 8 sts for armhole, knit 55-61-70 (76-85) sts (= front piece), cast off 8 sts for armhole, knit 55-61-70 (76-85) sts (= back piece). Put the piece aside and knit the sleeves.
Sleeve: Knit round on double pointed needles size 2.5mm. Cast on 36-42-42 (48-48) sts with camel. Knit 3 cm Rib (= turn-up). Insert a marking thread and measure piece from here from now on. Knit another 3 cm Rib. Change to needle size 3mm, knit 1 round with camel and continue in stripes according to M.1. At the same time, when sleeve measures 5 cm inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 6-5-8 (7-9) times on every 2-3-2 (3-2.5) cm = 48-52-58 (62-66) sts. When sleeve measures 17-19-22 (25-29) cast off 8 sts mid under arm (adjust to last row in a stripe) = 40-44-50 (54-58) sts. Put the piece aside and knit the other sleeve.

Yoke: Put sleeves in on the same needle as back and front pieces where you cast off for armholes = 190-210-240 (260-286) sts. Insert a marking thread in all transitions between body pieces and sleeves = 4 marking threads. Knit back and forth on needle, starting by the right raglan seam and start by dec 3 sts on each side of this marking thread. Continue in M.1 following on from the stripe pattern on front and back pieces. At the same time, dec for raglan – see Decreasing tip – on every other row: 14-16-18 (20-22) times.
When all dec are complete there are 72-76-90 (94-104) sts left. Put sts on a thread and knit the raglan edge before the neck.

Raglan edge: Pick up approx 32 to 41 sts (divisable by 4 + 2) along the raglan seam on the sleeve with double pointed needle size 2.5mm and camel. Knit Rib with 1 edge st each side in garter sts. When Rib measures 2 cm, cast off loosely. Repeat along raglan opening on front piece, but after 2 rows make 3 buttonholes evenly distributed (there will be a buttonhole on neckline as well). 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts on next row.

Neck: Put sts from thread on neck back on double pointed needles size 2.5mm and pick up 7-8-7 (8-6) sts on each raglan edge with camel = 86-92-104 (110-116) sts.
Knit back and forth on needle from the open raglan seam as follows: knit 1 row from wrong side, knit 1 row from right side.
Next row from wrong side: 1 edge st in garter sts, *K3, P3*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 edge st in garter sts.
Continue in Rib with 1 edge st each side in garter sts. At the same time, after 1 row in Rib, make a buttonhole over the others and repeat when Rib measures 4-4-4 (5-5) cm.
Cast off loosely when Rib measures 5-5-5 (6-6) cm. Fold neckline towards wrong side and attach with neat sts.

Assembly: Place raglan edges on top of each other with buttonholes at the top and join in lower edge. Sew the openings under the arms. Sew on buttons. Fold Rib at sleeve edges towards the wrong side and attach neatly.

Measure piece from marking thread. Insert a marking thread mid front and mid back (= 46-48-49 (51-53) sts between marking threads. Continue in stocking sts until piece measures 12-14-15 (15-15) cm. Now inc 1 st on each side of the 4 middle sts mid front (inc by picking up st from previous row and knit this) on every other row a total of 8-9-9 (10-11) times = 108-114-116 (122-128) sts. After all inc are complete the piece measures approx 18-21-22 (23-24) cm. On next row dec 6 sts mid front and mid back (i.e. 3 sts on each side of both marking threads) = 48-51-52 (55-58) sts for each leg.

Legs: Put sts from one leg on a thread and sts from the other leg on double pointed needles size 4mm. Insert a marking thread on inner side of leg and knit stocking sts. When leg measures 4 cm dec 1 st on both sides of marking thread on every 2-3-4 (5-6) cm a total of 3 times = 40-43-44 (47-50) sts. When leg measures 12-15-18 (23-28) cm inc evenly on row to 48-48-54 (54-60) sts. Continue in Rib and cast off loosely when Rib measures 10 cm.
