INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

ELEVATION:
Knit over the next 8-9-10-10-10-11, turn, tighten yarn and knit 16-18-20-20-20-22, turn, tighten yarn and knit 24-27-30-30-31-33, turn, tighten yarn and knit 32-36-40-40-42-44, turn, tighten yarn and knit 40-45-50-50-53-55, turn, tighten yarn and knit 48-54-60-60-64-66, turn, tighten yarn and knit until beginning of round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size (applies to diagram A.2).

INCREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 84 stitches) and divide number of stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 6) = 14. In this example increase after approx. every 14th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 4 stitches before stitch with marker, knit 2 together, A.5 (= 5 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

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

YOKE:
Cast on 84-88-92-96-102-108 stitches on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm with 1 strand Baby Merino + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 6-11-16-12-15-18 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 90-99-108-108-117-126 stitches. Insert a marker thread at beginning of round (i.e. between first and last stitch on round) = mid back. Purl 1 round. For better fit work a small ELEVATION at the back of neck - see explanation above. When elevation has been worked, switch to circular needle size 5 mm.
Now displace beginning of round as follows:
Knit 4-8-4-4-8-4 and insert a new marker thread before next stitch. This is now the new beginning on round, and this is done to make the lace pattern symmetrical mid front! Work PATTERN in the round as follows: * A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 (= 7 stitches) *, work from *-* the entire round (= 10-11-12-12-13-14 times). Continue pattern like this and increase as shown in diagram. When A.1/A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 240-264-288-312-338-364 stitches on round. Work 1-3-7-1-5-1 rounds in stocking stitch and increase AT THE SAME TIME 2-6-10-2-4-2 stitches evenly on first round. NOTE! To make the pattern symmetrical mid front it is important to increase the same number of stitches in each side between mid back and mid front (mid front is the middle stitch in 5th-5th-6th-6th-6th-7th repetition A.2 on round) = 242-270-298-314-342-366 stitches. Piece measures now approx. 20-21-23-25-27-29 cm from cast-on edge (measured mid front). If this measurements is not correct, work in stocking stitch until piece has correct measurement.

Work next round as follows:
Work the first 25-16-32-34-26-44 stitches, slip the next 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= right sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 71-77-85-91-101-111 stitches in stocking stitch as before (= front piece), slip the next 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= left sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches (= in the side under sleeve) and work the remaining 46-61-53-57-75-67 stitches on round. Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 156-168-184-200-220-240 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast on under each sleeve in each side (= 77-83-91-99-109-119 stitches between stitches with marker thread in on front piece and back piece). Work in stocking stitch in the round, AT THE SAME TIME on next round work A.3 over the middle 5 stitches in each side (i.e. over stitches with marker thread + 2 stitches on each side of these). Continue with stocking stitch, A.3 in the sides and increase on 7th and 15th round in diagram A.3 (= every 8th round in diagram) until piece measures 31-32-32-32-32-32 cm from division. Increase should have been done approx. 8 times in each side = approx. 188-200-216-232-252-272 stitches on round. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work next round as follows: Work A.4 in the round. When A.4 has been worked vertically, cast off whit knit. To avoid a tight cast-off edge use a larger needle or make a yarn over that is casted off after approx. every 4th stitch. Jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 50-58-64-66-70-72 stitches from stitch holder on double pointed needles/short circular needle size 5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each side of the 7-7-7-9-9-9 stitches cast on under sleeve (= 57-65-71-75-79-81 stitches). Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch under sleeve. Beginning of round is after the 7-7-7-9-9-9 new stitches. Work in stocking stitch in the round but over the middle 5 stitches under sleeve (= stitch with marker thread + 2 stitches on each side of this stitch) work A.5. When piece measures 3 cm in all sizes, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 8th-5th-4th-3rd-3rd-2nd round 6-9-11-11-11-10 times in total = 45-47-49-53-57-61 stitches. When piece measures 22-22-21-19-17-15 cm from transition between yoke and sleeve, insert 3 marker threads in piece (without working stitches) as follows: Insert 1st marker thread at beginning of round, insert 2nd marker thread after 15-16-17-18-19-21 stitches, insert 3rd marker thread after 15-16-16-18-19-20 stitches = 15-15-16-17-19-20 stitches remain on round after 3rd marker thread. On next round increase 1 stitch after every marker thread by making 1 yarn over (= 3 stitches increased – knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes).
Increase like this every 4th round 6 times in total = 63-65-67-71-75-79 stitches on needle. Work in stocking stitch and A.5 mid under sleeve until piece measures
31-31-30-28-26-24 cm from transition between yoke and sleeve. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Work A.4 in the round and decrease 1 stitch on first round = 62-64-66-70-74-78 stitches. When A.4 has been worked, cast off by knitting. To avoid a tight cast-off edge use a larger needle or make a yarn over that is casted off after approx. every 4th stitch. Sleeve measures approx. 35-35-34-32-30-28 cm from transition between yoke and sleeve. Work the other sleeve the same way.
