GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern from RS. See diagram for size!

DECREASE TIP (applies to the body):
Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row/round work YO twisted to avoid holes.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 168-192-216-240 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 strand Kid-Silk + 2 strands Glitter.
K1 round, P1 round.
Then work as follows: A.1 over all sts (= 12 repetitions in the round). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, insert 2 markers in piece; 1 after 7th-8th-9th-10th st and 1 after 91st-104th-117th-130th st (= 1 marker in each side, front/back piece = 84-96-108-120 sts). Then work in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE.
When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3½-4-4½-5 cm / 1¼”-1½”-1¾”-2”, 3 more times (= 4 dec in total) = 152-176-200-224 sts. When piece measures 24-26-27-29 cm / 9½”-10¼”-10½”-11½”, inc 1 st on each side of both markers – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3-3-2½-2 cm / 1 1/8”-1 1/8”-7/8”-3/4”, 3 more times (= 4 inc in total) = 168-192-216-240 sts.
When piece measures 38-38-37-37 cm / 15”-15”-14½”-14½”, bind off 14-16-18-20 sts in each side for armhole (i.e. bind off 7-8-9-10 sts on each side of both markers) = 70-80-90-100 sts remain on back/front piece.
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 42-48-54-60 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk + 1 strand Kid-Silk + 2 strands Glitter.
K1 round, P1 round.
Then work A.1 over all sts (= 3 repetitions in the round).
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue in stockinette st.
Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve).
When piece measures 8 cm / 3'', inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 5-4-3-2 cm / 2”-1½”-1 1/8”-3/4” 6-7-8-9 more times (= 7-8-9-10 inc in total) = 56-64-72-80 sts.
When piece measures 41-38-34-31 cm / 16”-15”-13½”-12¼” (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), work A.1 over all sts (= 4 repetitions)- NOTE! Start first repeat of A.1 7-8-9-10 sts before the marker! On last round with A.1 bind off 14-16-18-20 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. bind off 7-8-9-10 sts on each side of marker) = 42-48-54-60 sts remain on needle (= 3 whole repetitions of A.1). Sleeve measures 46-44-41-39 cm / 18”-17¼”-16”-15¼”.
Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body = 224-256-288-320 sts. Work A.1 over all sts (= 16 repetitions in the round). When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, continue with A.2 over A.1. Continue the pattern like this. Switch to a shorter circular needle when needed. When A.2 has been worked, 96-128-160-192 sts remain on needle. K 1 round AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 22-50-68-92 sts evenly = 74-78-92-100 sts. Then work an elevation at the back of neck as follows in stockinette st, insert 1 marker in middle st (= mid back), cut the yarn and beg here: K 7 sts past marker mid back, turn, tighten yarn and P 14 sts back, turn, tighten yarn and K 21 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 28 sts back. Continue like this - work 7 sts more on every turn until a total of 56-56-70-70 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 round until mid back again. Work 2 ridges in garter st. Bind off with K from RS. Yoke measures approx. 20-24-27-31 cm / 8”-9½”-10½”-12¼” (mid front) and entire jumper measures approx. 58-62-64-68 cm / 22¾”-24½”-25¼”-26¾”.
