See diagrams A.1-A.3. Work entire pattern from RS in stocking st.

ELEVATION:
Work an elevation in the back of neck from mid back as follows: NOTE! On every turn in the middle of piece slip 1st st, tighten yarn and continue to work. Work 10-11-12-13-13-14 sts, turn, tighten yarn and work 20-22-24-26-26-28 sts. Turn, tighten yarn and work 35-38-41-44-44-47 sts, turn, tighten yarn and work 50-54-58-62-62-66 sts.

INCREASE TIP (applies to raglan):
Inc 1 st by making a YO before and after the 4 sts between markers on front piece/back piece and sleeves. K YO twisted on next round. Work the inc sts in the pattern.

PATTERN TIP:
Diagram A.3 shows how to work the 4 raglan sts to avoid large spaces between sts. After diagram work piece with light pearl grey until finished.

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Cast on 120-120-124-124-128-128 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with light pearl grey. K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2). Switch to circular needle size 4 mm when piece measures 2 cm. Then work in stocking st AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 12-12-12-8-8-8 sts evenly = 108-108-112-116-120-120 sts (this is done to give the garment better shape). Work 1 round. On next round, inc 12-28-36-40-36-52 sts evenly = 120-136-148-156-156-172 sts. Work 1 round and insert 1 marker in first st = mid back. Then work ELEVATION - see explanation above - in the neck. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work 1 round and at the same time insert 8 markers and 4 strands in the piece as follows: Move marker from beg down to first st = beg of round (mid st on back piece). Work the first 21-24-27-28-28-30 sts, insert a marker. Work 4 sts, insert a marker, work 6-7-7-8-8-10 sts, insert a strand in the last st on right needle (= mid st on sleeve). Work 5-6-6-7-7-9 sts, insert a marker. Work 4 sts, insert a marker, work 21-24-27-28-28-30 sts, insert a strand in the last st on right needle (= middle of front piece).

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Now work PATTERN according to diagram A.2 - READ PATTERN TIP! NOTE: St with strand on back piece, front piece and sleeves should fit st with arrow in diagram. Count out towards the side (i.e. the pattern will not fit in transitions between body and sleeves). AT THE SAME TIME inc for raglan in every transition between body and sleeves as follows - READ INCREASE TIP:
ON BODY: Inc every round 0-0-0-2-10-14 times in total, every other round 14-15-17-19-20-20 times in total and then every 4th round 6-6-5-4-2-2 times in total (= 81-89-97-105-119-131 sts on back piece and 81-89-97-105-119-131 sts on front piece)
ON SLEEVE: Inc every other round 14-15-19-20-25-23 times in total and every 4th round 6-6-4-4-2-4 times in total (= 59-63-67-71-77-81 sts on sleeve). Piece measures approx. 19-19-19-20-21-22 cm from cast-on edge at the front.
After all inc for raglan, there are 280-304-328-352-392-424 sts. Work next round as follows: Work the first 41-45-49-53-60-66 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 59-63-67-71-77-81 sts on stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new sts, work 81-89-97-105-119-131 sts (= front piece), slip the next 59-63-67-71-77-81 sts on stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new sts, work the last 40-44-48-52-59-65 sts (= half back piece) = 178-194-210-230-258-282 sts. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new sts under each sleeve. Then work in stocking st until piece measures approx. 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm. Then inc 1 st on each side of 2 sts in each side by making a YO (marker is in the middle of these sts), K YO twisted on next round (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 4-4-4-5-5-5 cm 2 more times (= 3 times in total) = 190-206-222-242-270-294 sts. Work until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm. On next round inc 10 sts evenly in all sizes = 200-216-232-252-280-304 sts. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib = K 2/P 2 until rib measures approx. 4 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P.

SLEEVE:
Work piece in the round on circular needle in stocking st. Slip sts from one stitch holder back on circular needle size 4 mm (= 59-63-67-71-77-81 sts). Work in stocking st and cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new sts at the end of round = 67-71-75-81-87-91 sts. Insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under the sleeve. When piece measures approx. 3 cm, dec 1 st on each side of the 2 sts mid under sleeve (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts). Switch to double pointed needles when needed. Repeat dec every 3½-3½-3-2½-2-2 cm 8-9-10-12-15-16 more times (= 9-10-11-13-16-17 times in total) = 49-51-53-55-55-57 sts. When piece measures 41-42-43-43-42-42 cm, inc 7-5-7-5-9-7 st evenly = 56-56-60-60-64-64 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work rib K 2, P 2 until piece measures 45-46-47-47-46-46 cm from where new sts were cast on. Cast off with K over K and P over P. Work the other sleeve the same way.

HAT:
Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. Cast on 116 sts with light pearl grey on circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib = K 2/P 2 until piece measures approx. 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. K 1 round with pearl grey while AT THE SAME TIME dec 8 sts evenly = 108 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 9 repetitions on round). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with light pearl grey and stocking st. Work 1 round AT THE SAME TIME insert 9 markers in the hat with 12 sts between every marker. On next round, dec 1 st after every marker by K 2 tog (= 9 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round 10 times in total = 18 sts. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 9 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx. 25 cm vertically.
