NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

DECREASE TIP 1 (applies to body):
Dec as follows before marker (beg 3 sts before marker): K 2 tog, K 1.
Dec as follows after marker: K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso

DECREASE TIP 2 (applies to round yoke):
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 264 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 32) = 8.25. I.e. in this example K approx. every 7th and 8th st tog.

INCREASE TIP:
Beg 1 st before marker, 1 YO, K 2, 1 YO. On next round work YO twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 148-160-176-196-212-232 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with pearl grey. K 1 round, then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm and K 1 round while dec 2-0-0-2-0-2 sts evenly = 146-160-176-194-212-230 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 73-80-88-97-106-115 sts (= in the sides). Then work in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3 cm 4 more times = 126-140-156-174-192-210 sts. When piece measures 24 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 6-6-7-7-8-8 cm 2 more times = 138-152-168-186-204-222 sts. When piece measures 38-39-40-41-42-43 cm, cast off the middle 8 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 4 sts on each side of both markers) = 61-68-76-85-94-103 sts remain on front and back piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 36-40-40-44-44-48 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm with pearl grey. K 1 round, then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and K 1 round while dec 1-4-2-3-2-3 sts evenly = 35-36-38-41-42-45 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and work in stocking st. When piece measures 8 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 2½-2-2-2-1½-1½ cm 9-11-12-12-13-13 more times = 55-60-64-67-70-73 sts. When piece measures 35-35-34-34-33-33 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulder), cast off 8 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. cast off 4 sts on each side of marker) = 47-52-56-59-62-65 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 216-240-264-288-312-336 sts. Work 0-1-1-2-2-3 cm in stocking st with pearl grey. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 while AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 24-24-32-32-40-48 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP 2 and KNITTING TIP = 192-216-232-256-272-288 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 28-36-40-40-48-48 sts evenly = 164-180-192-216-224-240 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 32-42-42-54-56-60 sts evenly = 132-138-150-162-168-180 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 42-44-52-60-62-70 sts evenly = 90-94-98-102-106-110 sts.
On round marked with arrow 5 in diagram (= last round) dec 10 sts evenly in all sizes = 80-84-88-92-96-100 sts. Then work an elevation at the back of neck as follows in stocking st with pearl grey, insert 1 marker 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 56-56-56-70-70-70 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 round until mid back again.
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work rib K 2/P 2 in the round over all sts for 3-3-4-4-5-5 cm. Loosely cast off sts with K over K and P over P. Yoke measures approx. 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm and entire jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm.
