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 diagrams A.1 and A.2 (choose diagram for correct size). Work entire pattern in stocking st and repeat A.1 up to armhole on both body and sleeves.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 220 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 44 sts) = 5. I.e. in this example K approx. every 4th and 5th st tog.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Beg 4 sts before marker and work as follows: K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeve):
Beg 2 sts before marker and work as follows: 1 YO, K 4, 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern on yoke, 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.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 220-240-260-284-320-348 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with silver pink. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 44-48-52-56-64-68 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 176-192-208-228-256-280 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8 cm, insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 88-96-104-114-128-140 sts (= in the sides). Then dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3-3-3-3-4½-4½ cm 4-4-4-4-3-3 times in total in each side = 160-176-192-212-244-268 sts - NOTE: Adjust to dec on a round with silver pink.
When piece measures 22-22-23-23-23-23 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3½-3½-4-4-6-6 cm a total of 4-4-4-4-3-3 times = 176-192-208-228-256-280 sts.
When piece measures approx. 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm - adjust so that 1 or 2 rounds with silver pink after 1 round with dots have been worked - work next round as follows: Cast off 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts for armhole, work 80-88-96-104-118-130 sts (= front piece), cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole, work 80-88-96-104-118-130 sts (= back piece) and cast off the remaining 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 60-60-64-64-68-68 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with silver pink. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 12-12-14-12-14-14 sts evenly = 48-48-50-52-54-54 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 8-8-7-8-8-10 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 3½-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm 11-13-13-14-14-16 times in total = 70-74-76-80-82-86 sts. Work until sleeve measures 46-46-45-45-44-44 cm - adjust to work the same no of rounds with silver pink as on body (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). K 1 round while casting off the middle 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts mid under sleeve = 62-66-68-70-72-76 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 4 mm as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 284-308-328-348-380-412 sts on needle. K 1 round with silver pink while dec 8-8-10-12-14-16 sts evenly = 276-300-318-336-366-396 sts on needle - READ KNITTING TIP. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size and beg on round marked with arrow in diagram for correct size). Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 36-40-42-48-50-56 sts evenly - remember DECREASE TIP-1 = 240-260-276-288-316-340 sts on needle. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 40-40-44-48-52-56 sts evenly = 200-220-232-240-264-284 sts on needle.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 40-44-44-52-52-60 sts evenly = 160-176-188-188-212-224 sts on needle.
On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 48-60-60-60-64-68 sts evenly = 112-116-128-128-148-156 sts on needle.
When A.2 has been worked, piece measures approx. 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm up to shoulder.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck with silver pink as follows: Insert 1 marker mid back. K 12-12-14-14-15-15 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 24-24-28-28-30-30 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 36-36-40-40-44-44 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 48-48-52-52-58-58 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 60-60-64-64-72-72 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 72-72-76-76-86-86 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 84-84-88-88-100-100 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 96-96-100-100-114-114 sts back. Turn and K until mid back.

NECK EDGE:
Switch to a short circular needle size 3 mm and K 1 round while dec 28-32-32-32-44-52 sts evenly = 84-84-96-96-104-104 sts on needle. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm. Then LOOSELY cast off with K over K and P over P.
Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm up to shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.
