INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 2 stitches by each marker as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the front and back pieces are worked back and forth separately. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

BODY:
Cast on 138-146-158-170-178-190 stitches with circular needle size 9 and 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Work as follows: Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round, knit 25-27-30-31-33-36 stitches, A.1 (= 24-24-24-30-30-30 stitches), knit 25-27-30-31-33-36 stitches, insert 1 marker (= front piece), knit 64-68-74-78-82-88 stitches (= back piece). Continue pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 8 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 14-12-8-7-7-5 cm a total of 2-3-4-5-5-7 times = 130-134-142-150-158-162 stitches. When the piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm, adjust so that the next round is round 6 or 8 of A.1, cast off stitches for armhole as follows: Cast off the first 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches, knit and work A.1 as before until there are 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches left before the marker, cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches, knit until there are 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches left before the marker, cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches. Cut the strand.

FRONT PIECE:
The piece is now worked back and forth. Now divide the front piece for the neck as follows:

LEFT SHOULDER:
= 32-33-34-37-38-39 stitches. Now work from the side towards mid front from the right side as follows: 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch and A.2 over the first 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches of A.1 (adjust the cable so that there are 13-13-13-15-15-15 rows of stocking stitch between the cable in A.1 and the cable in A.2), turn the piece. Continue the pattern back and forth in this way until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armhole (the piece has a total length of 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm). On the next row from the right side cast off the first 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches for the shoulder = 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches. Work shawl collar as follows: Continue with A.2 over the remaining stitches until the shawl collar measures 6 cm. Cast off.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
= 32-33-34-37-38-39 stitches. Now work from mid front towards the side from the right side as follows: A.3 over the 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches of A.1 (adjust the cable so that there are 13-13-13-15-15-15 rows of stocking stitch between the cable in A.1 and cable in A.3) and 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch, turn the piece. Continue the pattern back and forth in this way until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armhole, adjust to match the left shoulder. On the next row from the wrong side, cast off the first 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches for the shoulder = 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches. Work shawl collar as follows: Continue with A.3 over the remaining stitches until the shawl collar measures 6 cm. Cast off.

BACK PIECE:
= 54-56-58-60-62-64 stitches. Work stocking stitch until the piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm from where you cast off for the armholes. On the next row from the right side, cast off the middle 14-14-14-16-16-16 stitches for the neck (= 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches left on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Work until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armholes, adjust to match the front pieces, cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 32-32-34-34-36-38 stitches with double pointed needles size 9 mm and 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid under the sleeve. Knit. When the piece measures 8 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker. Increase in this way every 10-8-7-6-6-6 cm a total of 4-5-5-6-6-6 times = 40-42-44-46-48-50 stitches. When sleeve measures 42-42-41-41-40-40 cm, divide the piece at the marker (= mid under the sleeve) and work back and forth from here. Cast off when the piece measures 45 cm (same length in all sizes because of the shoulder width). Work another sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams – make sure the seam is not tight. Sew the shawl collar together mid back with grafting stitches and sew it to the neckline at the back of the neck – the seam should turn in towards the wrong side. Sew in the sleeves i.e. sew the cast-off edge from sleeve to the armhole. The opening on the underside of sleeve should be sewn to the stitches that where cast off for armhole on the body.
