JUMPER:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for correct size. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

INCREASE TIP:
Work until 1 sts remain before marker: Make 1 YO, K 2 sts (marker is in the middle of these two sts), make 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 110-124-138-154-168-182 sts on circular needle size 7 mm with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and K 1 round while dec 20-22-24-28-30-32 sts evenly = 90-102-114-126-138-150 sts. Then work in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 12-13-11-12-11-12 cm, work pattern according to diagram A.1. When piece measures approx. 32-33-34-35-36-37 cm - adjust so that 1 round with light grey after a round with dots has been worked - work next round as follows: Cast off 2-3-3-4-4-4 sts for armhole, work 41-45-51-55-61-67 sts (= front piece), cast off 4-6-6-8-8-8 sts for armhole, work 41-45-51-55-61-67 sts (= back piece) and cast off the remaining 2-3-3-4-4-4 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 24-26-28-28-30-30 sts on double pointed needles size 7 mm with light grey. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 8 mm and K 1 round while dec 1 st on round = 23-25-27-27-29-29 sts. Then work in stocking st. When piece measures 10 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 4-3½-3½-3-3-3 cm a total of 9-10-10-11-11-11 times = 41-45-47-49-51-51 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 32-32-31-31-30-30 cm, work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 - NOTE: St with arrow in diagram should fit middle st on round - count outwards where round beg. When piece measures 44-44-43-43-42-42 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulder) - adjust so that 1 round with light grey after 1 round with dots has been worked - work next round as follows: Cast off the first 2-3-3-4-4-4 sts, work 37-39-41-41-43-43 sts and cast off the remaining 2-3-3-4-4-4 sts. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 156-168-184-192-208-220 sts on needle. K 1 round with light grey while dec 6-8-4-2-8-0 sts evenly = 150-160-180-190-200-220 sts on needle. K 0-2-2-2-0-2 rounds with light grey
Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size) and READ KNITTING TIP (= 15-16-18-19-20-22 repetitions on round). Continue pattern like this and dec as shown in diagram.
When A.2 has been worked (finish after a round marked with arrow for correct size), there are 60-64-72-76-80-88 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 51-53-55-57-59-61 cm up to shoulder.

ELEVATION IN NECK:
For better fit work an elevation at the back of neck. Insert 1 marker mid back and work back and forth on circular needle with light grey as follows: K 10-10-12-12-13-14 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 20-20-24-24-26-28 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 30-30-36-36-39-42 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 40-40-48-48-52-56 sts back. Turn piece, tighten yarn and K until mid back.
K 1 round over all sts with light grey while dec 14-18-22-26-26-34 sts evenly = 46-46-50-50-54-54 sts on needle.

HAT:
Work size S/M on circular needle/double pointed needles size 6 and 7 mm.
Work size L/XL on circular needle/double pointed needles size 7 and 8 mm.
Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. Cast on 54 sts on circular needle size 6-7 mm with light grey green. Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 4-5 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 7-8 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (= 9 repetitions on round). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION After A.3 (piece measures approx. 15-16 cm), work pattern according to diagram A.4. When piece measures 20-21 cm, insert 6 markers in the piece, 9 sts apart. Continue A.4 and dec 1 st after every marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every other round 3 times in total, then every round 2 times in total = 24 sts remain on needle (work sts that do not fit pattern when dec, in light grey). On next round K all sts twisted tog 2 by 2 with light grey = 12 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

POMPOM:
Make a pompom with cerise, 10 cm in diameter and fasten it at the top of hat.
