GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. NOTE: To avoid the piece being to tight in the sides when working pattern, make 2 YOs inside edge st in each side on every row with dropped sts (instead of 1 YO). Slip both YOs off the needle on next row.

STRIPES:
Change color on every row marked with arrow in A.1 and A.2. Work the stripes in the following order:

A.1:
1 strand rust + 1 strand raspberry
1 strand raspberry + 1 strand peach
2 strands raspberry
1 strand raspberry + 1 strand peach
1 strand peach + 1 strand cerise
1 strand cerise + 1 strand medium pink
2 strands cerise
1 strand cerise + 1 strand medium pink

A.2:
1 strand medium pink + 1 strand beige
2 strands beige
1 strand beige + 1 strand strong yellow
1 strand beige + 1 strand yellow

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the texture on the garment the piece must be held up when measuring otherwise the jumper will be too long when worn.
