JUMPER:
The piece is worked top down. Yoke is worked back and forth on circular needle with button band on the back, then work the body in the round.

YOKE:
Cast on 89-95-101-113-125-131 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Bind off for BUTTON HOLES mid back - see explanation above. Work 5 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above (= band), A.1 until 5 sts remain, 5 sts in garter st (= band). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue as follows: 5 sts in garter st, A.2 (= 6 sts), repeat A.2 13-14-15-17-19-20 times in total, finish with first st in A.2 (so that pattern is the same in each side), finish with 5 sts in garter st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 245-263-281-317-353-371 sts on needle. Then work as follows: 5 sts in garter st, A.3 (= 17 sts), repeat A.4 11-12-13-15-17-18 times, A.5 (= 20 sts) and 5 sts in garter st. When A.3-A.5 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 284-305-326-368-410-431 sts on needle. Continue in garter st until piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm / 8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾'', on last row from WS adjust no of sts to 283-307-331-365-397-429. Continue to work as follows (from RS): bind off the first 5 sts, work the first 39-43-47-53-59-65 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 61-65-69-74-78-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6 new sts under sleeve, work the next 78-86-94-106-118-130 sts (= front piece), slip the next 61-65-69-74-78-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6 new sts under sleeve, work the remaining 39-43-47-53-59-65 sts (= half back piece).

BODY:
There are now 168-184-200-224-248-272 sts for body. Insert a marker in each side of body where new sts were cast on under sleeve (= 3 new sts on each side of marker). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Continue with stockinette st, now work in the round. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', inc 1 st on each side of each marker (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm / 2''-2''-2''-2 3/8''-2 3/8''-2 3/8'' 5 more times = 192-208-224-248-272-296 sts. Continue in stockinette st until piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm / 13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15''-15¼'', switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Bind off. The whole piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''.

SLEEVE:
Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 (= 61-65-69-74-78-82 sts). Pick up 1 st in each of the 6 sts cast on under sleeve, insert a marker in the middle of these sts = 67-71-75-80-84-88 sts. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST – see explanation above, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6, then work in stockinette st. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side marker, repeat dec every 2-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-½"-½"-3/8"-3/8" 9-10-11-13-14-15 more times = 47-49-51-52-54-56 sts. Continue in stockinette st until sleeve measures 27-27-26-26-25-25 cm / 10½"-10½"-10 1/4"-10 1/4"-9 3/4"-9 3/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), switch to double pointed needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work 3 ridges. Bind off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Place band without buttonholes under band with buttonholes and fasten the bottom band. Sew on buttons.
