----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 230-250-280-320-350-380 sts on 2 circular needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Baby Alpaca Silk. Pull out one circular needle and then work 2 ridges in GARTER ST in the round – see explanation above (this is done to avoid a tight edge in garter st when working pattern later). Then work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 184-200-224-256-280-304 sts on needle. Then work in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE.
When piece measures 8 cm / 3’’, insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 92-100-112-128-140-152 sts (= in the sides). Now inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 6-6-6-6-7-7 cm / 2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2¾”-2¾” 4 more times (= 5 inc in total in each side) = 204-220-244-276-300-324 sts on needle. When piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm / 13 3/8’’-13¾’’-14¼’’-14½’’-15’’-15¼’’, bind off 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts on each side of both markers) = 90-98-110-124-136-148 sts remain on front and back piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.
Cast on 70-70-70-80-80-80 sts on 2 circular needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Baby Alpaca Silk. Pull out one circular needle, distribute sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work 2 ridges in GARTER ST. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 56-56-56-64-64-64 sts on needle.
Then work in stockinette st in the round. When piece measures 10-10-8-8-10-8 cm / 4”-4”-3 1/8”-3 1/8”-4”-3 1/8”, insert 1 marker at the beg of round. Now inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st on each side of marker).
Repeat inc every 6th-5th-5th-5th-4th-4th round 17-19-21-20-22-25 more times (= 18-20-22-21-23-26 inc in total) = 92-96-100-106-110-116 sts.
When piece measures 44-44-43-43-42-42 cm / 17 ¼”-17 ¼”-17”-17”-16½”-16½”, bind off 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 6-6-6-7-7-7 sts on each side of marker) = 80-84-88-92-96-102 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off (without working them first) = 340-364-396-432-464-500 sts.
Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body piece = 4 markers.
Work in stockinette st in the round AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec for raglan on each side of the 4 markers – READ DECREASE tip (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round 2-2-3-3-3-3 more times (= 3-3-4-4-4-4 dec in total) = 316-340-364-400-432-468 sts.
On next round, dec 28-20-12-16-48-20 sts evenly = 288-320-352-384-384-448 sts remain on needle.
Work next round as follows: * Work A.2 (= 19 sts), 13 sts in stockinette st *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-12-14 times in total. Continue the pattern like this. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows: * Work A.4 (= 19 sts), A.3 (= 13 sts) *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-12-14 times in total. Continue the pattern like this.
When A.4/A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 279-310-341-372-372-434 sts on needle. Work next round as follows: * A.4 (= 19 sts), A.5 (= 12 sts) *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-12-14 times in total. Continue the pattern like this.
When A.4 has been worked 2-2-2-2-3-3 times in total vertically (A.5 has been worked 1-1-1-1-2-2 times vertically), work A.6 instead of A.4 and A.7 instead of A.5 (beg A.7 at arrow at the bottom in diagram for correct size). Continue pattern like this while AT THE SAME TIME dec as shown in diagram. When A.6/A.7 has been worked 1 time vertically (finish after round marked with arrow at the top in diagram for correct size), 135-150-165-180-180-210 sts remain on needle.
Insert 1 marker in last round – now measure piece from here (yoke measures approx. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm / 8¾”-9”-9½”-9¾”-10¼”-10½” from armhole, the entire jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22’’-22¾’’-23 5/8’’-24 3/8’’-25¼’’-26’’ from bottom).
Work next round as follows: * K 1, P 2 tog, K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 1, P 2 tog, K 1, work A.9 (= 4 sts – beg at arrow in diagram for correct size) *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-12-14 times in total = 99-110-121-132-132-154 sts remain on needle. Work 1 round with K over K and P over P.
Then work a high collar as follows: * Work A.8 (= 7 sts), A.9 (= 4 sts) *, repeat from *-* 9-10-11-12-12-14 times in total. Continue pattern like this until piece measures approx. 6 cm / 2½’’ from marker. Then loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.
