Jumper:
Knitting tension:13 sts x 16 rows on needles size 8mm with 1 thread of each yarn quality (= 4 threads)in pattern = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib:*K2, P3*, repeat from *-*

Berry pattern: See diagram M.1. The diagram is seen from the right side.

Decreasing tip (applies to yoke): All dec are done from the right side. Dec as follows where sleeve meets back and front pieces: Start 4 sts before marking thread: K 3 tog, 1 stocking st, (marking thread), slip 1 st as if to knit it, K 2 tog, psso. Purl all sts not fitting into pattern.

Knitting tip: If your knitting tension doesn’t fit the measurement chart (too tight), the sleeve cap will be too short. You may adjust this by knitting extra random rows without inc between increases.

Body: Cast on 100-110-120-140-150 sts on circular needles size 8 with 1 thread Karisma, 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Glitter (1 of each colour). Knit 1 round, knit 3 rounds in rib (see above). Continue in stocking sts, at the same time adjusting no of sts to 100-112-124-140-156 sts on first row after the Rib. Insert a marking thread each side = 50-56-62-70-78 sts between marking threads. Remember to check your knitting tension! When piece measures 9-9-9-12-19 cm inc. 1 st on both sides of each marking thread on every 9-9-9-12-19 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-1 times = 112-124-136-148-160 sts. When piece measures 34-35-36-37-38 cm cast off 6 sts each side for armhole (i.e. 3 sts each side of marking threads) = 50-56-62-68-74 left for back piece and front piece. Now put the piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 25-25-30-30-30 sts on double pointed needles 8mm with 1 thread Karisma, 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Glitter (1 of each colour). Knit stocking sts until sleeve measures 8 cm. Continue in Rib until sleeve measures 16 cm. Now continue in stocking sts, at the same time adjusting no of sts to 28-28-28-32-32 sts on first round of stocking sts. When sleeve measures 20-20-19-19-20 cm inc. 2 sts mid under-arm on every 3-2.5-2.5-2.5-2 cm a total of 11-13-13-13-15 times = 50-54-54-58-62 sts. When sleeve measures 52-52-51-51-51 cm, cast off 6 sts mid under-arm = 44-48-48-52-56 sts. Put the sts on a thread and knit the other sleeve.

Yoke: Read the whole of this section before continuing !

Put the sleeves in on the same circular needle as the body where you bound off for armholes = 188-208-220-240-260 sts. Insert a marking thread where sleeve meets body (= 4 marking threads).
Decreases: See knitting tip! Dec 2 sts on each side of all marking threads (= 16 dec pr round). At the same time, knit berry pattern – see M.1. NB! For size S + XL + XXL , knit 1 round in stocking sts before starting dec. Dec on every 4th round – see Decreasing tip above – 6-6-7-6-6 times and on every other row 2-3-2-4-5 times. Purl sts not fitting into pattern.
Neck dec: At the same time, when piece measures 51-53-55-57-59 cm, put the middle 8 sts (2 reports) on thread for neck. On next row cast off 4 sts (1 report) on each neck edge. When all dec have been made, there are 44-48-60-64-68 sts left on needle.
Neck: Pick up approx 16 sts on neck at front (incl sts on thread) with 1 thread Karisma, 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Glitter (1 of each colour) = approx 60-84 sts. Knit 1 round, at the same time dec no of sts to 49-52-55-57-60 sts. Purl 1 round and cast off loosely.

Assembly: Sew the openings under the arms.

Crochet border: Crochet along sleeves and edges on body with 1 thread Karisma, 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Glitter (1 of each colour) on crochet hook size 5 as follows: 1 dc in first st, *3 ch, skip approx 2 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in dc from beginning of round. Crochet along neck edge with 1 thread Karisma, 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Glitter (1 of each colour) as follows: 1 dc mid back, *4 ch, 1 tr in second ch, skip approx 2 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 4, 1 tr in second ch, skip approx 2 cm, 1 sl st in dc from beginning of round.
