NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

PATTERN:
Work diagram A.1 and A.2 (choose diagram for correct size and beg on round marked with arrow for correct size). Work entire pattern in stocking st in 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk (= BAS) or 1 strand Melody (= M).

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern on yoke, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

INCREASE TIP-1:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2:
To calculate how often inc should be done on a increase round, use the total no of sts on needle (e.g. 54 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 12 sts) = 4.5. I.e. in this example inc after alternately every 4th and 5th st.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec on each side of marker as follows: Beg 2 sts before marker, K 2 tog, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 54-54-58-58-62-62 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand off white Melody. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 7 mm and K 1 round while inc 12-18-14-17-13-16 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP-1 AND INCREASE TIP-2 = 66-72-72-75-75-78 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size = 22-24-24-25-25-26 repetitions of 3 sts). READ KNITTING TIP and inc as shown in diagram = 88-96-96-100-100-104 sts on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
Continue to inc as follows:
On round marked with arrow-1 in diagram inc 30-34-38-46-50-54 sts evenly - remember INCREASE TIP-2 = 118-130-134-146-150-158 sts.
On round marked with arrow-2 in diagram inc 30-30-34-34-38-38 sts evenly = 148-160-168-180-188-196 sts.
On round marked with arrow-3 in diagram inc 20-20-24-24-28-32 sts evenly = 168-180-192-204-216-228 sts.
On round marked with arrow-4 in diagram inc 12-12-16-20-24-24 sts evenly = 180-192-208-224-240-252 sts.
On round marked with arrow-5 in diagram inc 10-10-14-10-14-14 sts evenly = 190-202-222-234-254-266 sts.
When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 19-21-21-22-23-23 cm from cast-on edge. Work next round as follows with 2 strands grey Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand grey Melody: K 54-58-66-72-80-84 (= back piece), slip the next 41-43-45-45-47-49 sts on 1 stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new sts (= under sleeve), K 54-58-66-72-80-84 (= front piece), slip the next 41-43-45-45-47-49 sts on 1 stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts (= under sleeve).

BODY:
= 120-128-144-160-176-184 sts. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. K 1 round with grey. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (= 15-16-18-20-22-23 repetitions of 8 sts). When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stocking st with grey until finished measurements (with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk/1 strand Melody). Work until piece measures 35-35-37-38-39-41 cm. Approx. 2 cm remain until finished measurements, try the jumper on for desired length. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm. Work 4 ridges and LOOSELY cast off. Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 7 mm. K 1 round with grey and cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new sts at the end of round = 47-49-51-53-55-57 sts. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 new sts (= mid under sleeve) and insert 1 marker in the middle st on round (= mid on top of sleeve) – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (st with star in diagram should fit with st with marker mid on top of sleeve – count outwards from where round beg). When piece measures 2-2-3-3-4-4 cm, dec on each side of marker mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 sts dec). Repeat dec every 5½-5-4-4-3½-3½ cm a total of 7-8-9-9-10-10 times = 33-33-33-35-35-37 sts. AT THE SAME TIME after A.2 work in stocking st with grey until finished measurements (with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk/1 strand Melody). Work until piece measures 43-42-42-42-42-42 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Approx. 2 cm remain until finished measurements, try the jumper on for desired length. Switch to double pointed needles size 6 mm. Work 4 ridges and LOOSELY cast off. Sleeve measures approx. 45-44-44-44-44-44 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.
