PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Work entire pattern in stocking st. See diagram for correct size.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, 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.

DECREASE TIP (applies to body):
Dec on each side of marker in each side as follows: Beg 4 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

INCREASE TIP (applies to body):
Inc on each side of marker as follows:
Beg 2 sts before marker and make 1 YO, K 4 sts (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

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

YOKE:
Cast on 108-112-116-120-124-128 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with grey. Work rib (= K 2/P 2). Work 2 rounds rib with grey, then work rib in light grey. When piece measures 4 cm, switch to circular needle size 5 mm, K 1 round while dec 18-16-17-12-10-5 sts evenly = 90-96-99-108-114-123 sts. Then work an elevation at the back of neck as follows: Insert 1 marker mid front (between the 2 middle sts in size S-M-XL-XXL, in the middle st in size L and XXXL). Beg mid back and work an elevation at the back on circular needle size 5 mm with light grey as follows: K until 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts remain before marker at the front, turn and P until 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until 20-20-22-22-24-26 sts remain before marker at the front, turn and P until 20-20-22-22-24-26 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until 30-30-32-32-34-36 sts remain before marker, turn and P until 30-30-32-32-34-36 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and K until mid back. Then work according to A.1 (= 30-32-33-36-38-41= repetitions). REMEMBER KNITTING TENSION AND READ KNITTING TIP. Work and inc according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 240-256-264-288-304-328 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 23-23-23-28-28-28 cm from cast on edge mid front. Continue with grey. Work 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-0-4-4-0-4 sts evenly = 240-256-268-292-304-332 sts. Continue in stocking st with grey for 0-2-3-0-1-3 cm, piece now measures approx. 23-25-26-28-29-31 cm from mid front. Work next round as follows: Work the first 33-36-39-43-46-51 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 54-56-56-60-60-64 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new sts, work the next 66-72-78-86-92-102 sts (= front piece), slip the next 54-56-56-60-60-64 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new sts, work the last 33-36-39-43-46-51 sts (= half back piece).

BODY: = 144-156-172-188-204-224 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side, in the middle of the new sts that were cast on. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Then work in stocking st with grey. When piece measures 3 cm, dec 1 st on each side of each marker – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec), dec every 3½ cm 3 times in total = 132-144-160-176-192-212 sts. When piece measures 17 cm, inc 1 st on each side of each marker - READ INCREASE TIP, inc every 5-5-5-4-4-4 cm 4-4-4-5-5-5 times in total = 148-160-176-196-212-232 sts. Continue with stocking st until piece measures 35-35-36-36-37-37 cm, K 1 round while inc 36-40-44-48-52-60 sts evenly = 184-200-220-244-264-292 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib = K 2/P 2 for 8 cm. Cast off sts with K over K and P over P.

SLEEVES:
Work sleeves in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. Slip the 54-56-56-60-60-64 sts from stitch holder back on a short circular needle size 5 mm and pick up 1 st in every st cast on under sleeve = 60-62-64-68-70-74 sts. Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve. Work in stocking st with grey. When piece measures 3 cm dec 1 st on each side of marker, dec every 3-2½-2½-2-2-1½ cm 10-11-12-12-13-15 times in total = 40-40-40-44-44-44 sts. Continue with stocking st until piece measures 33-32-32-31-31-30 cm, K 1 round while inc 12 sts evenly = 52-52-52-56-56-56 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Continue with rib = K 2/P 2 for 8 cm. Cast off sts with K over K and P over P.
