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

INCREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 70 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 8) = 8.75. In this example increase alternately after approx. every 8th and 9th stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.1 finishes differently depending on the size.

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body. Begin 1 stitch before A.1 and work as follows: 1 yarn over, knit 1, marker thread, work A.1 and increase 2 stitches as shown in diagram, marker thread, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 4 stitches increased). On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
Begin 4 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread , make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 2 stitches before marker thread and knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from mid back, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on a short circular needle/double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 70-74-74-82-86-98 stitches on a short circular needle size 4 mm with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 8-8-12-12-16-16 stitches evenly - READ INCREASE TIP-1 = 78-82-86-94-102-114 stitches on needle. Switch to a short circular needle size 5 mm, work next round as follows: Knit 14-15-16-18-20-23 stitches, insert 1 marker thread, knit 11 stitches (= right sleeve), insert 1 marker thread, knit 28-30-32-36-40-46 stitches (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread, knit 11 stitches (= left sleeve), insert 1 marker thread, knit 14-15-16-18-20-23 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
Then work in stocking stitch and A.1 between marker threads on each sleeve. AT THE SAME TIME on first round increase for RAGLAN in every transition between body and sleeves – see explanation above (= 8 stitches increased - NOTE: Increases on sleeves are shown in A.1). Increase like this every other round 20-22-24-26-29-30 times in total.
When A.1 has been worked in your size, increases for raglan are done and there are 238-258-278-302-334-354 stitches on needle. Piece measures now approx. 22-24-26-28-30-31 cm from shoulder and down.
Work next round as follows: Knit 34-37-40-44-49-53 stitches (= ½ back piece), slip the next 51-55-59-63-69-71 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= right sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-8-10 new stitches on needle (insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these new stitches = in the side on body), knit the next 68-74-80-88-98-106 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 51-55-59-63-69-71 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= left sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-8-10 new stitches on needle (insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these new stitches = in the side on body) and knit the remaining 34-37-40-44-49-53 stitches (= ½ back piece). Then finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.

BODY:
= 148-160-176-192-212-232 stitches. Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - READ DECREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 4 cm 3 times in total in each side = 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. When piece measures 18 cm from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 4 cm 3 times in total in each side = 148-160-176-192-212-232 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm when piece measures 33-33-33-33-33-34 cm from division. Work 2 ridges. Switch back to circular needle size 5 mm and cast off - make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge. Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve in the round on a short circular needle/double pointed needles. Slip the 51-55-59-63-69-71 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle size 5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-8-10 stitches cast on under sleeve = 57-61-67-71-77-81 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread mid under sleeve and move it upwards when working - round begins here.
Then work as follows: 0-2-1-3 2-0 stitches in stocking stitch, A.2A (= 4 stitches – begin A.2 where A.1 ended in your size), A.2B over the next 48-48-56-56-64-72 stitches (= 6-6-7-7-8-9 repetitions of 8 stitches), A.2C (= 5 stitches) and 0-2-1-3-2-0 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 2 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease 8-10-12-13-15-17 times in total in S: On every 4th round, in M: On every 3rd round, in L + XL: On every other round, in XXL + XXXL: On every round = 41-41-43-45-47-47 stitches - NOTE: Work the stitches that do not fit the pattern when decreasing in stocking stitch, make sure that number of decreases and increases in pattern is correct.
When piece measures 18-16-15-14-12-11 cm from division under sleeve (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH in the round - see explanation above. Switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm. Remove 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and knit 1 round with 2 strands Kid-Silk. Every stitch now consists of 2 stitches because 2 strands were used = 82-82-86-90-94-94 stitches. Remove 1 strand Kid-Silk and continue with 1 strand Kid-Silk as follows: * Knit one of the 2 first/next stitches, make 1 yarn over, knit the second of the 2 first/next stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 123-123-129-135-141-141 stitches on needle. Knit 5 rounds. Then cast off as follows: * Cast off 1 stitch, make 1 yarn over on needle, cast off yarn over *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Slip stitches from stitch holder in the other side of piece on a short circular needle size 5 mm and work the same way as on first sleeve.
