----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Cast on 114-117-120-123-126-129 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Belle. K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 1/P 2). Switch to circular needle size 4 mm when piece measures 2 cm. Now continue piece in stocking st. On first round dec 18-17-16-15-14-13 sts evenly = 96-100-104-108-112-116 sts (this is done to give the garment better shape). On next round, inc 24-26-30-40-48-70 sts evenly = 120-126-134-148-160-186 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid back. On next round work as follows from mid back: K 17-18-20-24-27-33 (= half back piece), A.1, K 6, A.1 (= sleeve), K 34-37-41-48-54-67 (= front piece), A.1, K 6, A.1 (= sleeve ), K 17-19-21-24-27-34 (= half back piece). Continue pattern like this while AT THE SAME TIME working an elevation in the back as follows: Work 8 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and work 16 sts back, turn, tighten yarn and work 24 sts, turn, continue to work 8 sts more for every turn until a total of 64 sts have been worked after last turn, turn and work 1 round over all sts until mid back again. On next round start inc for RAGLAN – see explanation above - NOTE: Inc differently on body and sleeves. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION

RAGLAN BODY:
Inc every round 0-4-4-4-4-4 times in total, then every other round 28-27-29-30-32-33 times. There are 90-99-107-116-126-141 sts on front and back piece.

RAGLAN SLEEVE:
Inc every other round 16-19-21-22-24-27 times, then every 4th round 6-5-5-5-5-4 times. There are 70-74-78-80-84-88 sts for each sleeve.

When all inc are done there are 320-346-370-392-420-458 sts on needle. On next round, work as follows: K 45-49-53-58-63-70, slip the next 70-74-78-80-84-88 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 new sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts), K 90-99-107-116-126-141, slip the next 70-74-78-80-84-88 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 new sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts), K 45-50-54-58-63-71 = 196-214-230-248-268-298 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of markers in the side - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 14-14-14-30-30-30 cm 2-2-2-1-1-1 more times = 184-202-218-240-260-290 sts. When piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 20-17-16-15-16-13 sts evenly = 204-219-234-255-276-303 sts. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib = K 1/P 2. When rib measures 4 cm, loosely cast off K over K and P over P.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Slip the 70-74-78-80-84-88 sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm. Cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, insert 1 marker in the middle of the new sts = 78-82-86-88-92-96 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work in stocking st AT THE SAME TIME continue A.1 as follows: Inc 1 YO before A.1 up towards middle of sleeve, K 2 tog after A.1 towards under sleeve (i.e. the 8 new sts cast on under sleeve). This is done so that A.1 meets under sleeve and disappears, repeat dec every other round until all sts in both A.1 are gone. K YO twisted on next round, it should not make holes. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 3½-3½-3-3-2½-2½ cm 11-12-13-13-14-15 more times = 54-56-58-60-62-64 sts.

Work in stocking st until piece measures 51-50-50-50-49-49 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 6-4-5-3-4-2 sts evenly = 60-60-63-63-66-66 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib = K 1/P 2. Cast off when piece measures 55-54-54-54-53-53 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Work the other sleeve the same way.

POCKET:
Cast on 23 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on double pointed needles size 4 mm with Belle. Continue in stocking st back and forth with 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - in each side of piece. When piece measures 8 cm, adjust so that next row is from WS, inc 4 sts evenly from WS = 27 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, rib = K 1/P 2 until 2 sts remain, finish with K 1 and 1 edge st in garter st. When piece measures 10 cm, cast off K over K and P over P.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew the pocket on the left sleeve, approx 45 cm from cast off edge.
