PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5 – choose diagram for correct size.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 252 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 40) = 6.3. I.e. in this example K approx. every 5th and 6th st tog.

DECREASE TIP-2:
Dec as follows after marker A and C: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 1 st dec).
Dec as follows before marker B and D: K 2 tog before marker (= 1 st dec).

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
If you want the jumper more narrow in the neck, continue rib in A.5 to desired measurements, but to avoid a wide neck dec evenly in P sections.

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up.

BODY:
Cast on 252-276-300-330-366-396 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with BabyAlpaca Silk. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and K 1 round. Then work rib = K 1/P 2 in the round for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work pattern according to diagram A.1, AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 40-44-52-58-62-64 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 212-232-248-272-304-332 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION After A.1 work in stocking st. When piece measures 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm, insert 4 markers in piece as follows: Insert first marker after the first 31-35-38-44-50-56 sts (= marker A), second marker after the next 44-46-48-48-52-54 sts (= marker B), third marker after the next 62-70-76-88-100-112 sts (= marker C) and fourth marker after the next 44-46-48-48-52-54 sts (= marker D), = 31-35-38-44-50-56 sts remain on needle after last marker. Move the markers upwards when working.
On next round, dec after marker A and C and before marker B and D – Read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 sts dec). Dec like this every 8th round 5-5-5-4-4-4 times in total = 192-212-228-256-288-316 sts. When piece measures 22-22-23-23-23-23 cm, inc after marker A and C and before marker B and D - READ INCREASE TIP - (= 4 sts inc). Inc like this every 6th-6th-6th-8th-8th-8th round 5-5-5-4-4-4 times in total = 212-232-248-272-304-332 sts. When piece measures 32-34-35-35-35-35 cm, work next round as follows: Cast off 5-5-6-6-7-8 sts for armhole, work stocking st over the next 96-106-112-124-138-150 sts as before (= back piece), cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts for armhole, work stocking st over the next 96-106-112-124-138-150 sts as before (= front piece) and cast off the remaining 5-5-6-6-7-8 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles bottom up, switch to a short circular needle when needed.
Cast on 46-48-50-52-56-58 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with BabyAlpaca Silk. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked, switch back to double pointed needles size 3 mm. K 1 round. Work next round as follows: K 1, P 2, work in stocking st until 3 sts remain on round, P 2 and K 1. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 6 cm, inc 1 st on each side of the middle 8 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Inc a total of 15-19-23-24-25-26 times in Size S: On every 8th round, in size M: On every 6th round, in size L: On every 5th round, in size XL: Alternately on every 4th and 5th round, in size XXL: On every 4th round and in size XXXL: Alternately on every 3rd and 4th round = 76-86-96-100-106-110 sts. When piece measures 43-43-42-41-39-37 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because longer yoke) cast off the middle 10-10-12-12-14-16 sts under sleeve = 66-76-84-88-92-94 sts on needle. Knit another sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 3 mm as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 324-364-392-424-460-488 sts. K 2 rounds and dec AT THE SAME TIME 2-14-14-4-12-12 sts evenly on first round - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 322-350-378-420-448-476 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size = 23-25-27-30-32-34 repetitions of 14 sts). When A.2 has been worked, there are 276-300-324-360-384-408 sts on needle. K 2 rounds and dec AT THE SAME TIME 24-20-16-24-20-16 sts evenly on first round = 252-280-308-336-364-392 sts. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (= 9-10-11-12-13-14 repetitions of 28 sts). When A.3 is done (follow diagram for correct size), there are 216-240-264-288-312-336 sts on needle. Now work pattern in the round according to diagram A.4 (= 9-10-11-12-13-14 repetitions of 24 sts). When A.4 has been worked, there are 180-200-220-240-260-280 sts on needle. K 2 rounds and dec AT THE SAME TIME 0-8-4-12-8-16 sts evenly on first round = 180-192-216-228-252-264 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.5 (choose diagram for correct size = 15-16-18-19-21-22 repetitions of 12 sts). On round marked with arrow in diagram switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm before continuing pattern. When A.5 has been worked, there are 90-96-108-114-126-132 sts on needle – READ KNITTING TIP and cast off with K from RS. Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.
