Pattern: See diagram. The pattern is seen from the RS and the entire pattern is worked in stocking st. English Translations for the wording in the diagrams are given at the bottom of this pattern, and they are given in the vertical order in which they appear in the diagram.
Rib: *K1, P1 *, repeat from *-*.

Body: The jumper is worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 156-164 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with black and work 5 cm rib. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and continue in M.1, at the same time inc 44-56 sts evenly on first round = 200-220 sts. Remember the knitting tension! After M.1 work M.2 and then complete piece in M.3. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 32-34 cm divide piece in two and complete each piece separately.
Front piece: = 100-110 sts. When piece measures 57-59 cm cast off the middle 28-28 sts for neck and complete each side separately. Cast off to shape the neckline on every other row: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times. Cast off remaining sts on shoulder when piece measures 62-64 cm.
Back piece: = 100-110 sts. When piece measures 61-63 cm cast off the middle 38-38 sts for neck and complete each side separately. Cast off 1 st on neckline on next row. Cast off remaining sts on shoulder when piece measures 62-64 cm.

Continue in pattern as described for body piece (place a repeat mid upper sleeve). Inc 2 sts mid under arm on every 3rd round 27-27 times = 102-104 sts. Incorporate inc sts in pattern as you go along. When piece measures 47-46 cm cast off 8 sts mid under sleeve and complete piece back and forth on needle. Cast off to shape the sleeve cap each side on every other row: 10 sts 2 times. Cast off remaining sts when piece measures 50-49 cm.
