Pattern: See diagram M.1. See diagram for your size. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS and the entire pattern is worked in stocking st.

Jumper: Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 208-228-248-268-296-324 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with 2 threads dark grey Alpaca. K 1 round and continue in rib, K2/P2. When rib measures 5 cm change to needle size 5 mm, K 1 round, at the same time dec 58-64-72-74-82-90 sts evenly = 150-164-176-194-214-234 sts. Insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) at beg of round and 1 MT after 75-82-88-97-107-117 sts (= the sides). Continue in stocking st. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 12 cm dec 1 st on each side of both MT (= 4 dec) = 146-160-172-190-210-230 sts. Repeat the dec when piece measures 24 cm and 36 cm = 138-152-164-182-202-222 sts. Continue in stocking st until piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm. Now cast off 10 sts each side (= 5 sts on each side of both MT) for armhole = 118-132-144-162-182-202 sts. Put piece aside and knit short or long sleeves.
Short sleeve: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 76-80-84-84-88-92 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 2 threads dark grey Alpaca. K 1 round and continue in rib, K2/P2. When rib measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm change to needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st, at the same time dec 16-18-18-16-16-18 sts evenly on first round = 60-62-66-68-72-74 sts. Insert a MT at beg of round = mid under arm. Continue in stocking st. When piece measures 6-7-7-7-8-8 cm cast off 5 sts on each side of MT = 50-52-56-58-62-64 sts. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.
Long sleeve: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 56-56-60-60-64-64 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 2 threads dark grey Alpaca. K 1 round and continue in rib, K2/P2. When rib measures 12 cm change to needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st, at the same time dec 16-14-18-16-20-18 sts evenly on first round = 40-42-42-44-44-46 sts. Insert a MT at beg of round = mid under arm. Continue in stocking st. When piece measures 14 cm inc 1 st on each side of MT on every 2.5-2.5-2-2-1.5-1.5 cm a total of 10-10-12-12-14-14 times = 60-62-66-68-72-74 sts. When piece measures 40-39-39-39-38-38 cm (less for the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder) cast off 5 sts on each side of MT = 50-52-56-58-62-64 sts. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.
Yoke: Slip sleeves in on the same circular needle as body piece where cast off for armholes = 218-236-256-278-306-330 sts. K 1 round with 2 threads dark grey, at the same time dec 20-16-14-14-20-22 sts evenly = 198-220-242-264-286-308 sts. Now continue in M.1 with dec (see diagram for your size).
After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 there are 108-120-132-120-130-140 sts on round.
Neck: K 1 round, at the same dec 12-18-30-18-22-32 sts evenly = 96-102-102-102-108-108 sts. P 1 round. Change to needle size 4 mm and K 1 round, at the same time inc 20-18-18-18-20-20 sts evenly = 116-120-120-120-128-128 sts. Continue in rib, K2/P2. When rib measures approx 3 cm cast off loosely in rib.

Jacket: Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Work like jumper, but cast on 1 edge st each side towards mid front (i.e. add 2 sts to all st numbers throughout pattern). Additionally cast on 2 extra sts for rib, so that rib beg and ends with K2 towards mid front. Dec these 2 sts with the others when changing needle size. Work stocking st back and forth on needle from mid front, i.e. insert MT after 38-42-45-49-54-59 sts and after 114-124-133-147-162-177 sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 cast off 1 edge st each side and slip remaining sts on a stitch holder.
Front bands: Now work front bands as follows: Pick up 150-154-158-162-166-170 sts from the RS inside 1 edge st with 2 threads dark grey on needle size 4 mm along left front piece (up to sts on stitch holder). P 1 row from WS and continue as follows from RS: 2 garter sts, * K2, P2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 sts remain, K2, 2 garter sts. Continue like this until front band measures approx 3 cm and cast off loosely in rib.
Repeat along right front band, but after 1.5 cm make buttonholes as follows from WS (= from neckline): Work 10 sts rib as before, cast off 2 sts, * work 18 sts rib as before, cast off 2 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 6-6-6-6-7-7 times, work remaining 18-22-26-30-14-18 sts in rib as before. On return row cast on 2 new sts over cast off sts. When rib measures approx 3 cm cast off loosely in rib.
Neck: When front bands are completed pick up 7 sts on front band each side, slip sts from stitch holder back on needle and continue for neck as described for jumper with dec and inc, back and forth on needle with 2 garter sts each side (total no of sts is +14 = sts picked up on front bands ).
Note! When rib measures approx 1.5 cm cast off for buttonhole on right front band by casting off the 5th and 6th st from mid front (i.e. 2 P sts). Cast on 2 new sts on return row. Cast of loosely in rib when rib measures 3 cm.
