GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

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

MEASURING TIP:
Hold the piece up when measuring. Because of the garter st and the weight of the yarn the sleeve will be somewhat longer. If a lighter sleeve is wanted, work 4 ridges at the bottom of sleeve, then work in reversed stockinette st.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in 2 parts from mid front/mid back in a square. Cast on and work on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed. Finish by working the sleeves.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 8 sts with Paris and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 sts on every needle). Insert a marker in the first, third, fifth and seventh st (= 4 markers).
Then work in the round and in GARTER ST over all sts - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME on every other round make 1 YO on each side of every marker (= 8 inc on every other round), on next round K YOs to make holes.
Continue like this until there are 240-264-288-320-344 sts on needle (= 29-32-35-39-42 inc and 60-66-72-80-86 sts between every marker). Stop with 1 P round.
Now slip the middle 16-16-18-18-18 sts between 1st and 2nd marker on a stitch holder for neck, then work piece back and forth. Continue in garter st and continue inc at markers - AT THE SAME TIME bind off towards the neck on every other row as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times.
Continue inc until there are 284-308-330-362-386 sts on needle (= 38-41-44-48-51 inc, 78-84-90-98-104 sts between markers, 25-28-30-34-37 sts on each side of neck). Keep sts between 3rd and 4th marker on needle, bind off the other sts = 78-84-90-98-104 sts on needle.
Work 2 ridges back and forth over these sts. Bind off. Insert a marker in each side, 17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4" down from the shoulder.
This shows where the sleeve is sewn in.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 8 sts with Paris and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 sts on every needle). Insert a marker in the first, third, fifth and seventh st (= 4 markers).
Then work in the round and in garter st over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on every other round make 1 YO on each side of every marker (= 8 inc on every other round), on next round K YOs to make holes.
Continue like this until there are 288-312-336-368-392 sts on needle (= 35-38-41-45-48 inc and 72-78-84-92-98 sts between markers).
Now bind off the middle 28-28-30-30-30 sts between 1st and 2nd marker for neck, then work piece back and forth = 260-284-306-338-362 sts.
Continue inc until there are 284-308-330-362-386 sts on needle (= 38-41-44-48-51 inc, 78-84-90-98-104 sts between markers, 25-28-30-34-37 sts on each side of neck).
Keep sts between 3rd and 4th marker on needle, bind off the other sts = 78-84-90-98-104 sts on needle.
Work 15 ridges back and forth over these sts. Bind off. Insert a marker in each side, 17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4" down from the shoulder.
This shows where the sleeve is sewn in.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. READ MEASURING TIP!
Cast on 37-38-41-44-45 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Paris.
Work in garter st. When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc 1 st in each side.
Repeat inc every 5-4½-4½-4-3½ cm / 2"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1½"-1 1/4" 7-8-8-8-9 more times (= 8-9-9-9-10 inc in total) = 53-56-59-62-65 sts. Bind off when piece measures 49-48-47-45-44 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-18½"-17 3/4"-17 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders).


ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves down to markers on front/back piece. Sew underarm and side seams in one inside 1 edge st, leave the bottom 10 cm / 4'' = vent.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up approx. 66 to 74 sts (includes sts on stitch holder) on a short circular needle (40 cm / 16'') around the neck.
Work 2 ridges. Bind off.
