RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 38 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 6) = 6.3. In this example increase after approx. every 6th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

ELEVATION:
Start from the right side mid back, insert 1 marker thread before the first stitch and knit 6-6-7-7-7-8 stitches past the marker thread, turn, tighten the strand and purl 12-12-14-14-14-16 stitches from the wrong side, turn the piece, tighten the strand and knit 18-18-21-21-21-24 stitches, turn the piece, tighten the strand and purl 24-24-28-28-28-32 stitches, turn the piece, tighten the strand and knit back to mid back.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of A.1/A.2 in each transition between body and sleeves. The increases are different on the body and sleeves as explained in the text.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for the sides on the body):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 4 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles/circular needle from mid back and is worked top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 38-38-38-40-42-42 stitches with double pointed needles size 10 mm and 1 strand Delight in each colour + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 3 strands). Change to double pointed needles size 9 mm and work 2 RIDGES – see description above. AT THE SAME TIME on the third round (= a round of knit) increase 6-8-8-8-8-10 stitches evenly along the round – READ INCREASE TIP-1 = 44-46-46-48-50-52 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 10 mm.
For a better shape, you can now work an ELEVATION at the back of the neck – see description above. When the elevation is finished, insert 4 marker threads in the piece AT THE SAME TIME as you work and increase as follows: Knit 6-6-6-7-7-8 (= ½ the back piece), purl 1, knit 2 stitches in each of the next 3 stitches (knit in front and back loop of stitch = 3 stitches increased) and insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches, purl 1, knit 1 (= mid top of right sleeve), purl 1, knit 2 stitches in each of the next 3 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches, purl 1, knit 11-12-12-13-14-15 (= front piece), purl 1, knit 2 stitches in each of the next 3 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches, purl 1, knit 1 (= mid top of left sleeve), purl 1, knit 2 stitches in each of the next 3 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches, purl 1 and knit 5-6-6-6-7-7 (= ½ the back piece) = 56-58-58-60-62-64 stitches on the needle.
The next round is worked as follows: knit 6-6-6-7-7-8 (= ½ the back piece), increase 1 stitch for RAGLAN – see description above, work A.1 (= 8 stitches), increase 1 stitch for raglan, knit 1 (= sleeve), increase 1 stitch for raglan, work A.2 (= 8 stitches), increase 1 stitch for raglan, knit 11-12-12-13-14-15 (= front piece), increase 1 stitch for raglan, work A.1 (= 8 stitches), increase 1 stitch for raglan, knit 1 (= sleeve), increase 1 stitch for raglan, work A.2 (= 8 stitches), increase 1 stitch for raglan and knit the remaining 5-6-6-6-7-7 stitches. Continue in this way, with stocking stitch and A.1/A.2 in each transition between body and sleeves. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! AT THE SAME TIME continue the increases for raglan as follows – NOTE: The increases are different on the front/back pieces and on the sleeves:

FRONT/BACK PIECE: Increase 1 stitch before A1 and after A.2 every 2nd round in total 5-5-8-9-12-15 times (including the first increase described above) and then every 4th round 3-4-3-3-2-1 times (= in total 8-9-11-12-14-16 times).

SLEEVE: Increase 1 stitch after A.1 and before A.2 every 2nd round in total 11-11-12-11-12-13 times (including the first increase described above) and then every 4th round 0-1-1-2-2-2 times (= in total 11-12-13-13-14-15 times).

After the last increase to raglan there are 132-142-154-160-174-188 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge mid front (approx. 25-27-29-31-33-35 cm from the shoulder).
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 18-19-21-23-25-28 stitches (i.e. until the marker thread (= ½ the back piece), place the next 31-33-35-35-37-39 stitches on 1 thread (= right sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-6-6-6 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve), knit 35-38-42-45-50-55 stitches (= front piece), place the next 31-33-35-35-37-39 stitches on 1 thread (= left sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-6-6-6 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve) and knit the remaining 17-19-21-22-25-27 stitches (= ½ the back piece). Body and sleeves are now worked separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 78-84-92-102-112-122 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches cast on under the sleeves in each side and let the marker threads follow the work upwards. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 4 cm increase 2 stitches in each side – READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 10 cm in total 3 times in all sizes = 90-96-104-114-124-134 stitches.
When the piece measures 33 cm from the separation (approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from the shoulder) knit 1 round where you increase 14-16-16-22-20-26 stitches evenly along the round = 104-112-120-136-144-160 stitches. Change to circular needle size 9 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2). When the rib measures 5 cm increase every other purl 2 to purl 3 = 117-126-135-153-162-180 stitches. Continue with knit over knit and purl over purl until the rib measures 8 cm. Cast off loosely with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm from the shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 31-33-35-35-37-39 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 10 mm, in addition knit up 1 stitch in each of the 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches which were cast on under the sleeve and insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches = 35-37-39-41-43-45 stitches on the needle. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm from the separation in all sizes decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 4½-4½-3½-3½-3-2½ cm in total 8-8-9-9-10-10 times = 19-21-21-23-23-25 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 36-35-33-32-30-29 cm from the separation (shorter lengths in the larger sizes due to longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 5-3-3-5-5-7 stitches evenly along the round = 24-24-24-28-28-32 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 9 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 /purl 2). When the rib measures 8 cm (the whole sleeve measures approx. 44-43-41-40-38-37 cm from the separation) cast off loosely with knit over knit and purl over purl – to prevent the cast-off edge becoming tight make a yarn over after every 4th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as ordinary stitches). Work the other sleeve in the same way.
