JUMPER:
Worked in the round, top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 84-88-92-96-100 sts on a short circular needle size 3 mm with dark grey or green. Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid back). Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3-3-4-4-5 cm (= neck edge). Switch to a short circular needle size 4 mm. K 1 round while at the same time adjusting the no of sts to 78-84-90-98-105. Then work an elevation at the back in stocking st as follows: K 8 sts past marker, turn, tighten thread and P 16 sts on return, turn, tighten thread and K 24 sts, turn, continue by working 8 sts more on every turn until a total of 48-48-64-64-80 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 round until marker mid back again. Then work diagram M.1 – see diagram for correct size! Switch to a longer circular needle when there are enough sts. When diagram M.1 has been worked, there are 208-224-240-252-270 sts on needle. Work 0-0-1-0-1 cm more with dark grey or green. Piece now measures approx. 14-15-16-17-18 cm mid front (measured without rib in the neck). Finish piece in dark grey or green and stocking st. First work 1 round while at the same time inc 4-4-4-12-10 sts evenly = 212-228-244-264-280 sts. Work next round as follows: Work 31-33-35-37-39 sts, slip the next 44-48-52-58-62 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve (without working them first), cast on 6 new sts, work 62-66-70-74-78 sts (= front piece), slip the next 44-48-52-58-62 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve (without working them first), cast on 6 new sts, work 31-33-35-37-39 sts.

BODY:
= 136-144-152-160-168 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue in stocking st for 23-26-29-32-35 cm. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 1 round while at the same time inc 12 sts evenly = 148-156-164-172-180 sts. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P.

SLEEVE:
Slip sts from one stitch holder on double pointed needles size 4 mm, cast in addition on 6 sts mid under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these sts) = 50-54-58-64-68 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work in stocking st in the round with dark grey or green. When sleeve measures 2 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat dec every 4½-3½-4-3-3½ cm a total of 5-7-7-10-10 times = 40-40-44-44-48 sts. When sleeve measures 20-24-28-31-35 cm, work diagram M.2, then switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm, then cast off with K over K and P over P.
Work the same way over the sts on the other stitch holder.
