GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

Arrows on chart show the knitting direction. The entire jumper is worked in GARTER ST - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE - Incorrect knitting gauge will affect the shape of the garment!

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 3-3-4-4-4-4 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with Big Delight. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above (1st row = RS). AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st at beg of every row by working 2 sts in first st on all rows until there are 47-51-56-62-66-72 sts on needle. Put piece aside and knit another part the same way. Place the two parts tog on same circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 = 94-102-112-124-132-144 sts. Insert a marker between the two parts. Then work as follows from RS: Work 2 sts in first st, work until 2 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, work until 1 st remains, work 2 sts in last st. Continue like this with inc and dec on every row from RS (no of sts will thus not vary) until piece measures 31-32-33-34-35-36 cm / 12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼'' - measured straight up along the side of piece (not in knitting direction) - see chart.

Insert 1 marker in the side. Now cast on new sts at the end of every row (i.e. towards the sides) for shoulder as follows: Cast on 6 new sts towards the side 4 times in total (= 24 sts inc in each side). Insert another marker in the side. NOTE: Remember to continue dec mid back as before the entire way until finished measurements = 134-142-152-164-172-184 sts on needle.

After last inc for shoulder, continue inc towards the sides as before (i.e. work 2 sts in first and last st on every row from RS).
When piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm / 7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8 ¾''-9'' from the last marker (measured straight up along the side), dec for shoulder as follows: Work the first 2 sts on row tog and the last 2 sts on row tog on all rows from RS until 38-42-44-48-52-56 sts remain on needle (i.e. dec both in the middle and in each side). Slip the first 13 sts on a stitch holder (work them first), bind off the next 12-16-18-22-26-30 sts = 13 sts remain on row. Continue in garter st over these sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st at beg of every row. Continue until 1 st remains, cut the yarn and pull it through the last st. Slip sts on stitch holder back on needle, work the same way over these 13 sts.

Cast on and work as back piece.

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with Big Delight. Work in garter st. When piece measures 6 cm / 2½'', inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 6-4½-4-4-3-3 cm / 2 3/8"-1 3/4"-1½"-1½"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" 4-5-5-5-6-6 more times (= 5-6-6-6-7-7 inc in total) = 46-50-52-54-58-60 sts. Bind off all sts when piece measures 33-32-31-29-28-26 cm / 13"-12½"-12 1/4"-11 3/8"-11"-10 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders).

Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves. Sew underarm seam and side seam in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.
