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:

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To calculate how often dec/inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 120 sts) and divide by no of dec/inc to be done (e.g. 25) = 4.8. I.e. in this example K approx. every 4th and 5th st tog when dec. If inc, do this is approx. every 5th st.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size). Work entire pattern in stocking st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, 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.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeve):
Beg 4 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 sts remain before marker: Make 1 YO, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

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

YOKE:
Cast on 120-128-136-144-148-148 sts on a short circular needle size 2.5 mm with dark rose. K 1 round. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 2. When rib measures 3 cm, K 1 round while at the same time dec 25-28-26-24-23-23 sts evenly - READ DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 95-100-110-120-125-125 sts. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm.
For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck as follows: Insert 1 marker mid back. Beg from RS with dark rose and K 9-10-11-11-12-12 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 18-20-22-22-24-24 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 27-30-33-33-36-36 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 36-40-44-44-48-48 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 45-50-55-55-60-60 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 54-60-66-66-72-72 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 63-70-77-77-84-84 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 72-80-88-88-96-96 sts back. Turn and K until mid back.
Now work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 (= 19-20-22-24-25-25 repetitions of 5 sts - choose diagram for correct size). Continue pattern and inc as shown in diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On round marked with arrow in diagram inc 2-4-0-0-10-13 sts evenly (inc in the sections with light beige). When diagram A.1 has been worked, there are 344-364-396-432-460-488 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 18-19-20-22-24-26 cm (measured mid front without rib in neck). Work next round as follows: K with light beige over the first 50-52-56-63-69-75 sts (= ½ back piece), slip the next 72-78-86-90-92-94 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-8-10-10-14-16 new sts (= in the side under sleeve), K over the next 100-104-112-126-138-150 sts (= front piece), slip the next 72-78-86-90-92-94 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6-8-10-10-14-16 sts (= in the side under sleeve), K over the remaining 50-52-56-63-69-75 sts (= ½ back piece).
Finish body and sleeves separately.

BODY:
= 212-224-244-272-304-332 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side = 106-112-122-136-152-166 sts between markers. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue in the round with light beige and stocking st. When piece measures 2-2-2-3-3-4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP-1 (= 4 sts dec). Dec like this every 2½-2½-2½-3-3-4 cm a total of 5-5-5-4-4-3 times in each side = 192-204-224-256-288-320 sts. When piece measures 16-17-18-18-18-18 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers – READ INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 sts inc). Inc like this every 3-3-3-4-4-5 cm a total of 5-5-5-4-4-3 times in each side = 212-224-244-272-304-332 sts. Continue until piece measures 29-30-31-31-31-31 cm (jumper measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm from shoulder). K 1 round while inc 60-72-76-80-80-84 sts evenly - READ DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 272-296-320-352-384-416 sts. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work rib = K 2/P 2. When rib measures 6 cm (jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from shoulder) inc 1 st in every transition between K 2 and P 2 by making 1 YO (= 68-74-80-88-96-104 sts inc) = 340-370-400-440-480-520 sts on needle (this inc is done to avoid a tight cast-off edge). On next round cast off with K over K and P over P (work YOs twisted before casting them off as regular sts).

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on a short circular needle from top down. Switch to double pointed needles when needed. Slip the sts from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 st in each of the 6-8-10-10-14-16 sts cast on under sleeve = 78-86-96-100-106-110 sts. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 6-8-10-10-14-16 sts under sleeve (= beg of round). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work in stocking st in the round with light beige. When sleeve measures 1-1-3-3-1-3 cm, dec 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP-1. Dec like this every 3-2½-1½-1½-1½-1 cm 13-15-19-20-22-23 times in total = 52-56-58-60-62-64 sts. When piece measures 38-37-36-34-33-32 cm, K 1 round while inc 16-16-18-20-22-24 sts evenly = 68-72-76-80-84-88 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work rib in the round = K 2/P 2. When rib measures 8 cm (or desired length) inc 1 st in every transition between K 2 and P 2 by making 1 YO (= 17-18-19-20-21-22 sts inc) = 85-90-95-100-105-110 sts. On next round cast off with K over K and P over P (work YOs twisted before casting them off as regular sts). Now sleeve measures approx. 46-45-44-42-41-40 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

HAT:

PATTERN: See diagram A.2. Work entire pattern in stocking st.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Worked in the round on a short circular needle from bottom up. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast on 140-152 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with light beige. K 1 round. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm. Switch to a short circular needle size 3 mm and work 1-4 rounds in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-2 sts evenly = 140-150 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (= 14-15 repetitions of 10 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.2 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22-23 cm vertically and there are 42-45 sts on needle. Continue with dark rose and K 1 round while K all sts tog 2 by 2. K 1 round. On next round K all sts tog 2 by 2 again = 11-12 sts on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
