Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. 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.
JUMPER:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for correct size (applies to A.1). Work entire pattern in stocking st.

INCREASE TIP (applies to round yoke):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 76 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 24) = 3.16. I.e. in this example inc after approx. every third st. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round work YO twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
If the knitting tension is wrong vertically and the garment is worked to tight, it will be too short and the armhole will be too small - this can be adjusted by working 1 extra round evenly in the sections with one colour.
NOTE: If the garment is too loose, it will be too long and the armhole too big, this can be adjusted by working 1 round less in the sections in one colour.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Beg 3 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (dec sts + the 2 middle sts under sleeve are worked in light oak the entire sleeve).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 76-80-82-86-88-92 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with light oak. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round while inc 24-24-26-30-32-32 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 100-104-108-116-120-124 sts.
For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck with light oak as follows: Insert 1 marker mid back. K 13-13-14-15-16-17 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 26-26-28-30-32-34 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 39-39-42-45-48-51 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 52-52-56-60-64-68 sts back.

When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 20-22-24-26-28-30 cm mid front (incl edge in garter st in neck). Work next round as follows with light oak: Work 41-45-48-54-59-64 sts in stocking st (= ½ back piece), slip the next 59-67-73-79-81-83 sts on 1 stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new sts (= in the side), work 82-89-95-107-117-127 sts in stocking st (= front piece), slip the next 59-67-73-79-81-83 sts on 1 stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts (= in the side), work the remaining 41-44-47-53-58-63 sts in stocking st (= ½ back piece).

BODY:
= 180-194-210-234-258-282 sts. Insert 1 marker, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! On first round inc 0-2-2-2-2-2 sts evenly AT THE SAME TIME work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 = 180-196-212-236-260-284 sts. Continue pattern and inc evenly every round marked with arrow in diagram as explained below - REMEMBER INCREASE TIP.

Arrow-4 Inc 8-10-12-14-18-14 sts = 232-248-264-280-312-336 sts.
When diagram A.2 has been worked, continue in stocking st with light oak until finished measurements. When piece measures 34 cm from marker (jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from shoulder), switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 3 ridges in garter st, switch back to needle size 4 mm and LOOSELY cast off with K. Jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from shoulder.

SLEEVE:
READ ENTIRE SLEEVE BEFORE WORKING (inc round in A.2 does not apply to sleeve)!
Worked in the round on a short circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. Slip the 59-67-73-79-81-83 sts from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle size 4 mm and pick in addition 1 st in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts cast on under sleeve on body = 67-75-83-89-93-97 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and 1 marker in the middle st on round (= mid on top of sleeve). Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 but on every pattern border count the beg of pattern out from mid st in pattern (see arrow in diagram – mid st in pattern should fit st with marker on top of sleeve). NOTE: The pattern will not fit mid under sleeve - work as much pattern as possible but always work the 4 middle sts mid under sleeve in light oak. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 2 cm, dec 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP. Dec a total of 13-16-19-21-22-23 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: On every 4th round, in size XXL + XXXL: Alternately on every 3rd and 4th round = 41-43-45-47-49-51 sts. When it has been worked up to arrow with dot marked in A.2, work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 the same way. After A.3 work in stocking st with light oak until sleeve measures 42-40-39-38-36-35 cm from division under sleeve (or desired length). Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work 3 ridges in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above. Switch back to double pointed needles size 4 mm and LOOSELY cast off with K. Sleeve measures approx. 44-42-41-40-38-37 cm from division under sleeve. Work the other sleeve the same way.
----------------------------------------------------------

BERET:

PATTERN:
See diagram A.4. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

SHAPING TIP:
To get a marked and tight shape on the beret moisten it and stretch it out on a plate approx. 24 cm in diameter. Leave hat to dry and take it carefully off the plate. This is done every time the hat is washed.
----------------------------------------------------------

BERET:
Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast on 104-112 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with light oak. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3-4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round with light oak. Then work pattern according to diagram A.4 (= 13-14 repetitions on round). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION After inc in diagram there are 156-168 sts on needle. On round marked with arrow-1 in diagram, dec 24 sts evenly (in size S/M K alternately every 5th and 6th st tog and every 6th and 7th st tog and in size M/L K every 6th and 7th st tog) = 132-144 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow-2 in diagram, dec 22-24 sts evenly (K every 5th and 6th st tog) = 110-120 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow-3 in diagram, dec 26-24 sts evenly (in size S/M K every 3rd and 4th st tog and in size M/L K every 4th and 5th st tog) = 84-96 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow-4 in diagram, dec 20-28 sts evenly (in size S/M K every 3rd and 4th st tog and in size M/L K alternately every 2nd and 3rd and every 3rd and 4th st tog) = 64-68 sts. Continue pattern.
When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with light oak as follows: * K 1 round, then K 1 round while dec 16-17 sts evenly (K every 3rd and 4th st tog) *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total (NOTE: For every round with dec work 1 st less before 2 sts are K tog ) = 16-17 sts. K 1 round. K the remaining sts tog 2 by 2 = 8-9 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx. 21-22 cm vertically - READ SHAPING TIP.

Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.5. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On round marked with arrow -1 in diagram, dec 6 sts evenly (K every 7th and 8th st tog) = 42 sts. On round marked with arrow -2 in diagram, dec 2 sts evenly (K every 20th and 21st st tog) = 40 sts. When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 22 cm. K 1 round with light oak while inc 4 sts evenly (inc 1 st after every 10th st) = 44 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib in the round = K 2/P 2 for 2.5 cm.
