INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
Jumper: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
Hat: See diagrams A.3 and A.4.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 240 stitches) and divide number of stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 8) = 30. In this example increase after approx. every 30th stitch.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over. Repeat at the remaining marker threads on round (= 8 stitches increased on round). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 3 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Beginning of round = mid back. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

Cast on 114-120-126-132-138-144 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Puna. Knit 1 round. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above, according to diagram A.1 (= 38-40-42-44-46-48 repetitions of 3 stitches on first round). When 6 rounds have been worked of diagram (to and with round marked with arrow in diagram) switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue until A.1 has been worked vertically. There are 228-240-252-264-276-288 stitches on round and piece measures 10 cm / 4'' from cast-on edge. Work 2 rounds in stockinette stitch and increase 2-8-16-24-20-34 stitches evenly on last round – read INCREASE TIP - see explanation above = 230-248-268-288-296-322 stitches. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Insert 4 marker threads in piece without working as follows: Insert 1st marker thread after 34-36-39-43-46-51 stitches, 2nd marker thread after another 47-52-56-58-56-59 stitches, 3rd marker thread after another 68-72-78-86-92-102 stitches, and 4th marker thread after another 47-52-56-58-56-59 stitches. There are now 34-36-39-43-46-51 stitches left on round. Continue in stockinette stitch and on next round begin increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above. Increase like this every 4th round 6-8-9-10-12-13 times in total = 278-312-340-368-392-426 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch without increasing stitches until piece measures 23-25-27-29-31-33 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13" from cast-on edge.
Work next round as follows: Work first 40-44-48-53-58-64 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches under sleeve, work the next 80-88-96-106-116-128 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches under sleeve, work the remaining 40-44-48-53-58-64 stitches on round (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 176-192-212-232-256-280 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under sleeves in each side (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 stitches on each side of marker thread). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', work A.2 (= 6 stitches) mid under each sleeve so that there are 3 stitches of diagram on each side of marker thread. For every time A.2 has been worked vertically, 4 stitches have been increased on round. Work the new stiches in stockinette stitch. Continue like this until A.2 has been worked 11 times vertically = 220-236-256-276-300-324 stitches. Piece measures approx. 27 cm / 10½''. Knit 1 round while increasing 20-22-23-24-27-30 stitches evenly = 240-258-279-300-327-354 stitches. Knit 1 round. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Now work rib = knit 1/purl 2 until rib measures 4 cm / 1½''. Switch back to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 round and loosely bind off by knitting. To avoid a tight bind-off edge use a larger needle or make a yarn over that is casted off after approx. every 4th stitch. Jumper measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVES:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.
Slip the 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches from stitch holder on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under sleeve = 67-76-84-88-92-97 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches (= mid under sleeve). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE! Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 8th-6th-5th-4th-4th-3rd round 11-14-16-18-19-20 times in total = 45-48-52-52-54-57 stitches. Knit 1 round while decreasing 0-0-1-1-0-0 stitches = 45-48-51-51-54-57 stitches. Continue in stockinette stitch until piece measures 35-33-32-30-28-27 cm / 13 3/4"-13"-12½"-11 3/4"-11"-10½" (NOTE: shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. Now work rib = knit 1/purl 2 until rib measures 4 cm / 1½''. Switch back to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 round. Then bind off by knitting. To avoid a tight bind-off edge use a larger needle or make a yarn over that is casted off after approx. every 4th stitch. Sleeve measures approx. 39-37-36-34-32-31 cm / 15 1/4"-14½"-14 1/4"-13½"-12½"-12 1/4". Work the other sleeve the same way.

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

HAT:
Worked in the round, top down on double pointed needles. Switch to a short circular needle when increasing.

Cast on 11-12 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with Puna. NOTE! Leave approx. 30 cm / 11 3/4'' yarn end to tighten the hat at the top when finished.
ROUND 1: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 2: Knit 1-1, * knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* = 21-23 stitches.
ROUND 3: Knit all stitches. Knit all yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
Now work PATTERN – see explanation above, as follows:
Work diagram A.3 (= 1 stitch on first round) 21-23 times on round. When A.3 has been worked vertically, there are 126-138 stitches on round. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Work diagram A.4 (= 6 stitches) over every repetition of A.3. When A.4 has been worked 5 times vertically, piece measures approx. 26 cm / 10 1/4''.
Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) until hat measures 28-28 cm / 11"-11''. Bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Fasten off. Tighten together top of hat by basting yarn up and down in one and one stitch, tighten, fasten yarn.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= insert needle down between 4th and 5th stitch, pull yarn through (= 1 new stitch), knit 1, purl 2, knit 1
= knit the new stitch from previous round and next stitch (= 2 stitches) together (= 1 stitch decreased)
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next round purl yarn over twisted.
= at beginning of this round (= 19th and 31st round in A.1 and 7th round in A.4 knit first 1 stitch (not shown in diagram), then repeat the 6 stitches in diagram in the round on round. Work next round (= 20th and 32nd round in A.1 and 8th round in A.4) as follows: Skip first knit stitch in diagram and work the remaining 6 stitches, then repeat all 7 stitches the entire round (i.e. the last stitch worked on round is a purl stitch). Continue the remaining rounds as shown in diagram).
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next round knit the yarn over to make holes.
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over
= when this round has been worked, switch to circular needle size 4 mm
