GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sides on body, at armholes and neck):
Dec inside 2 edge sts in garter st on front and back piece and inside 3 edge sts in garter st along armholes and neck. All dec are done from RS!
Dec as follows after 2 or 3 edge sts: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows before 2 or 3 edge sts: Beg 2 sts before edge sts and K 2 tog.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Beg 1 st before marker, make 1 YO, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts) and make 1 YO. On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Body is worked bottom up in two parts. Sleeves are worked in the round.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 75-85-91-101-111-123 sts on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Insert 1 marker after the first 37-42-45-50-55-61 sts on needle (seen from RS) = 38-43-46-51-56-62 sts on needle after marker, move the marker upwards when working. Switch to needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work in stockinette st with 2 edge sts in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', dec 1 st in each side - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 8-8-7-7-7-7 cm / 3"-3"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4" a total of 4-4-5-5-5-5 times in each side = 67-77-81-91-101-113 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 15-16-17-14-15-16 cm / 6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4"-5½"-6"-6 1/4", work pattern according to diagram A.1 over the middle sts – pattern beg from RS after marker in the middle of piece (see arrow in diagram) – work the other sts as before. When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height continue the pattern towards the edge st in each side as before - adjust to a whole or half heart - see A.1A and A.1B, (work A.1A in
the right side of work and work A.1B in the left side of work),
inside edge st in each side.

Work the sts that do not fit a whole or half heart out towards the sides in stockinette st. When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'', work 2 ridges over the outermost 5-7-8-9-10-11 sts in each side (work the other sts as before). Then bind off the first 2-4-5-6-7-8 sts at beg of the next 2 rows for armholes. Continue pattern with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side (where there is not enough room for a whole or half heart out towards armholes work these sts in stockinette st). AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armholes inside edge st on every other row (i.e. every row from RS) as follows: Dec 1 st 1-4-4-7-10-14 times in total – READ DECREASE TIP = 61-61-63-65-67-69 sts remain on needle. Continue pattern with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side (where there is not enough room for a whole or half heart out towards armhole work these sts in stockinette st). When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm / 20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8'', work 2 ridges over the middle 29-29-31-31-33-33 sts on needle (work the other sts as before). On next row from RS, bind off the middle 23-23-25-25-27-27 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue as before with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side. AT THE SAME TIME dec for neck on every other row as follows: Dec 1 st 3 times in total – READ DECREASE TIP = 16-16-16-17-17-18 sts remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' and bind off. Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Cast on and work as on back piece until piece measures 35-37-38-39-40-42 cm / 13 3/4"-14½"-15"-15 1/4"-15 3/4"-16½" - NOTE: Do not work A.1 on front piece. Now work pattern according to diagram A.2 over the middle sts – pattern beg from RS after marker in the middle of piece (see arrow in diagram) – work the other sts as before.
ARMHOLE: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'', work 2 ridges over the outermost 5-7-8-9-10-11 sts in each side as on back piece (work the other sts as before). Then bind off for armhole in the side as on back piece.
V-NECK: AT THE SAME TIME when A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically work 2 ridges over the middle 9 sts mid front (work the other sts as before). On next row from RS after ridges, bind off the middle 3 sts for neck and finish each part separately. Continue in stockinette st with bind off for armhole as before and dec AT THE SAME TIME for V-neck on every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) as follows: Dec 1 st 13-13-14-14-15-15 times in total - READ DECREASE TIP.
After all bind off for armholes and V-neck, 16-16-16-17-17-18 sts remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' and bind off. Repeat on the other shoulder - NOTE: Work first row from mid front (= WS). Beg by picking up 1 st in first st from the other side and work this tog with first st on needle. This is done to avoid a nick at the bottom of vent.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 32-34-36-38-40-40 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above. Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and work in stockinette st, insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 7-6-10-6-6-12 cm / 2 3/4"-2½"-4"-2½"-2½"-4 3/4", inc 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 3½-3-2½-2½-2-1½ cm / 1 1/4"-1"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4"-½" 12-14-14-15-17-19 times in total = 56-62-64-68-74-78 sts. When sleeve measures 48-47-46-43-42-41 cm / 19"-18½"-18"-17"-16½"-16" (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) bind off the middle 4-8-10-12-14-16 sts mid under sleeve. Finish sleeve cap back and forth on circular needle in stockinette st AT THE SAME TIME bind off at beg of every row in each side follows: bind off 2 sts 2-2-3-3-3-3 times and 1 st 1-1-2-4-7-8 times, then bind off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 53-54-54-54-54-54 cm / 21"-21 1/4"-21 1/4"-21 1/4"-21 1/4"-21 1/4", bind off 3 sts at beg of the next 2 rows and the bind off the remaining sts, piece measures approx. 54-55-55-55-55-55 cm / 21 1/4"-21½"-21½"-21½"-21½"-21½". Make another sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside bind-off edge. Sew side seams – sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts - beg at the top by armhole and sew until approx. 10 cm / 4'' remain in each side (= vent). Sew in sleeves – place sleeve 1 st in under edge in garter st along armhole and fasten neatly so that edge in garter st shows.
