GARTER ST (back and forth):

INCREASE TIP:
All inc are done from RS.
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row work YOs twisted. Then work the new sts in pattern A.1.

----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked back and forth on circular needle and sewn tog when finished.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 81-90-96-105-114-126 sts (incl 1 edge st in garter st in each side) with 1 strand Karisma + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 4.5 mm . P 1 row from WS. Then work rib from RS as follows: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K 1 and 1 edge st in garter st. When rib measures 4 cm (adjust so that last row is worked from WS), switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Work pattern from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, A.1 (= 3 sts) 26-29-31-34-37-41 times in width, K 1 (= first st in A.1), 1 edge st in garter st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 15-16-15-16-15-16 cm, inc 1 st inside 1 edge st in garter st in each side - read INCREASE TIP. Inc like this every 14-14-15-15-16-16 cm 3 times in total = 87-96-102-111-120-132 sts. When piece measures 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm, cast off 3 sts at beg of the next 2 rows for armholes = 81-90-96-105-114-126 sts on needle. Continue pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st in each side and cast off sts for armhole at beg of every row in each side as follows: 2 sts 1-3-3-3-5-7 times and 1 st 1-1-1-3-3-3 times = 75-76-82-87-88-92 sts. When piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm, slip the middle 27-28-28-29-30-30 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. On next row from the neck, cast off 1 st = 23-23-26-28-28-30 sts remain on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm. 

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as back piece.
When piece measures 61-63-64-66-67-69 cm, slip the middle 15-16-16-17-18-18 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then cast off for neck on every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 1 time = 23-23-26-28-28-30 sts remain on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm. 

SLEEVES:
The sleeves are worked back and forth on circular needle. 
Cast on 51-54-54-57-57-60 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) with 1 strand Karisma + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 4.5 mm . P 1 row from WS. Then work as follows (seen from RS): 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K 1(= first st in A.1), 1 edge st in garter st. 
When piece measures 4 cm, switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Continue with pattern from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, A.1 until 2 st remains, K 1, 1 edge st in garter st. 
When piece measures 9-9-9-8-10-10 cm, inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 5-5-3½-3½-2½-2½ cm a total of 9-9-12-12-15-15 times = 69-72-78-81-87-90 sts – work the inc sts gradually in diagram A.1. When piece measures 53-52-51-50-49-48 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) cast off at beg of every row in each side: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 1-2-4-5-7-8 times. Then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 59 cm, then cast off 3 sts 1 time in each side. Cast off, the piece measures approx. 60 cm in all sizes. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew sleeves in body. Then sew underarm seam and side seam inside 1 edge st in garter st.

NECK EDGE:
Now pick up sts around the neck with 1 strand Karisma + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) as follows: Pick up approx. 80-90 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm around the neck - NOTE: Adjust to pick a no of sts between sts on stitch holders on front piece and back piece that fit rib (K 1/P 2) the entire round. I.e. total no of sts is divisible by 3 and over sts from stitch holders work K over K and P over P over sts in P and garter st.
Work rib = K 1/P 2 until rib measures approx. 4 cm. Cast off sts with K over K and P over P. Fasten off.
