Knitting tip (applies to neck): To avoid holes when turning piece slip 1st st as if to knit when knitting back and tighten yarn slightly.

Increasing tip (applies to raglan):
Inc as follows from RS: Start 2 sts from marking threads: Yo, K4 (marking thread is placed in middle between these sts), yo.
On next row K into back of yo (i.e. knit into back of sts in stead of into front of sts) to avoid creating hole when increasing.

Knit piece in round on circular needle. Knit from top down so length of jersey is easily adjust according to requirement.
Cast on 76-80-84-88-88 sts on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm with petrol. Knit Rib K2 / P2 until piece measures 3 cm. Insert 1 marking thread (MT) at beginning of round (= right side). Continue with a rise on back of neck (to ensure neck will fit neatly). Continue in Rib K2/ P2 and knit back and forth as follows: Knit 38-40-42-44-44 sts, turn piece – read Knitting tip – and knit back to MT. Turn piece. Knit 43-45-47-49-49 sts. Turn piece.

Knit 1 round stocking sts with petrol at the same time inc 12-10-8-12-12 sts evenly = 88-90-92-100-100 sts. Continuing knit 8 sts from MT (move round beginning). Insert 4 new MT into piece as follows:
1st MT in beginning of round (= 1st transition between right arm and back piece ), 2nd MT after 28-29-30-34-34 sts (= back piece), 3rd MT after 44-45-46-50-50 sts (= left sleeve), 4th MT after 72-74-76-84-84 sts (= front piece). Sts between 4th and 1st marking thread = right sleeve. Continuing knit stocking sts and stripes after M.1- see explanation above – until completed measurement. At the same time inc for raglan: Inc 1 sts on each side of 4 marking threads (= 8 inc) – read Increasing tips. Inc on each round 2-4-6-3-7 times and on every other round 15-15-15-18-17 times.
