Pattern: See diagram M.1 to M.3. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS and the entire pattern is worked in stocking st.
Rib: *K1, P1*, repeat from *-*.

Body: The jumper is worked in the round on circular needle and cut for armholes afterwards. Cast on 220-230-240 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with black and work 7-8-8 cm Rib. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and continue in stocking st, at the same time inc 28-34-28 sts evenly on first round = 248-264-268 sts. Now inc 2 sts each side a total of 10-9-11 times on every 4th round = 288-300-312 sts. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 22-23-24 cm work pattern as follows: M.1, 2 rounds black, M.2, 2 rounds black, M.1, 2 rounds black and then complete piece in M.3 (approx 16-17 cm). At the same time when piece measures 28-30-31 cm inc 6 sts each side (to be cut for armhole afterwards and not included in pattern). When piece measures 59-60-61 cm cast off all sts in black.

Sleeve: Cast on 48-48-48 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with black and work 14 rounds stocking st, P 1 round (= folding edge, measure piece from here), K 1 round, M.1, K 1 round black. Now change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and continue in black stocking st, at the same time inc 12-16-16 sts evenly on first round = 60-64-64 sts. At the same time inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 40-38-39 times on every *other and 3rd round* alternately for size S and on every 3rd round for size M + L = 140-140-142 sts. When piece measures 45-46-45 cm work 2 cm in reverse stocking st (for sewing sleeve to body piece). Cast off.

Assembly: Insert a marking thread in the middle of the inc sts for armhole. Sew 2 seams on a sewing machine around the marking thread, 1st seam = ½ st from the MT, 2nd seam = ½ st from the 1st seam. Cut for armholes. Sew the shoulder seams – neckline = 24-24.5-25 cm. Pick up approx 110 sts round neck on double pointed needles size 3 mm with black and work 5 rounds stocking st, P 1 round, 5 rounds stocking st, cast off. Fold all edges double towards WS and fasten. Set in sleeves as follows: sew the last row in stocking st on sleeves to row after machine seam on armhole. Turn jumper inside out and fasten piece in reverse stocking st on sleeve to body piece.
