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.
GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 83 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 11) = 7.5. In this example increase after alternately approx. every 7th and 8th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES (body):
NOTE: The stripes begin after the 2 ridges in neck edge.
STRIPE 1: Work 8-9-9-9-10-10 cm with powder pink.
STRIPE 2: Work 8-9-9-10-10-10 cm with off white.
STRIPE 3: Work 9-9-9-10-10-10 cm with powder pink.
STRIPE 4: Work 9-9-10-10-10-11 cm with off white.
STRIPE 5: Work 9-9-10-10-10-11 cm with powder pink.
STRIPE 6: Work with off white until finished measurements.

STRIPES (sleeves):
Last stripe worked before stitches for sleeve were slipped on a stitch holder measures approx. 3-3-4-5-6-8 cm. Continue stripes like this:
STRIPE 1: Continue with powder pink for approx. 6-6-5-5-4-2 cm (= this stripe including the 3-3-4-5-6-8 cm from yoke is approx. 9-9-9-10-10-10 cm).
STRIPE 2: Work 9-9-10-10-10-10 cm with off white.
STRIPE 3: Work with powder pink until sleeve measures 25-23-23-21-19-18 cm from division.

RAGLAN:
Increase 8 stitches on round as follows:
Begin 1 stitch before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. Repeat at the other markers on round. On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 4 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 4 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from mid back, work top down. Back piece is longer than front piece. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 83-86-90-94-98-102 stitches on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm with powder pink. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME on third round (= a knitted round) increase 11-12-14-18-20-28 stitches evenly – READ INCREASE TIP (evenly) = 94-98-104-112-118-130 stitches.
Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm after ridges. Insert a marker thread at beginning of round and move it upwards when working.
Insert 4 marker threads in piece (without working the stitches): Insert 1st marker thread after the first 17-18-20-22-23-26 stitches (= half back piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 13 stitches (= right sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 34-36-39-43-46-52 stitches (= front piece), and insert 4th marker thread after the next 13 stitches (= left sleeve). 17-18-19-21-23-26 stitches remain on back piece after last marker thread. Work in stocking stitch and STRIPES (body) - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME On next round increase for RAGLAN - see explanation above, in every transition between body and sleeves. Increase like this every other round 19-21-22-24-26-28 times = 246-266-280-304-326-354 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work next round as follows: Work 36-39-42-46-49-54 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 51-55-57-61-65-69 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches under sleeve, work the next 72-78-83-91-98-108 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 51-55-57-61-65-69 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches under sleeve, work the remaining 36-39-41-45-49-54 stitches (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 160-172-186-202-220-240 stitches. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue in the round with stocking stitch and stripes (body).
When piece measures 26-26-27-27-27-27 cm, increase 16-20-22-22-28-32 stitches evenly = 176-192-208-224-248-272 stitches.
Now divide the piece for front and back piece and work back and forth as follows:
Slip stitches for back piece on a stitch holder (i.e. the first and last 44-48-52-56-62-68 stitches on round = 88-96-104-112-124-136 stitches for back piece).
Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib on front piece with off white as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, (knit 2, purl 2) until 3 stitches remain, knit 2, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When rib measures 2 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
Jumper measures approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm from shoulder and down on front piece.

Slip stitches from stitch holder back on circular needle 5.5 mm and work in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib as on front piece.
Jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from shoulder and down on back piece.

SLEEVES:
On sleeves continue with STRIPES (sleeve) - see explanation above. Slip the 51-55-57-61-65-69 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 new stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under sleeve and insert 1 marker thread mid under sleeve (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 new stitches on each side of marker thread) = 59-63-67-71-77-81 stitches on needle.
Continue in stocking stitch. When piece measures 4 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th-5th-6th-5th-5th-5th round 7-7-6-6-6-6 times in total = 45-49-55-59-65-69 stitches. Work until sleeve measures 25-23-23-21-19-18 cm from division. Work 1 round while adjusting number of stitches to 48-52-56-60-64-68. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and off white. Work rib (= knit 2/purl 2). When rib measures 2 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve the same way.
