INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE TIP (for body):
Decrease as follows by both marker threads: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Increase as follows mid under the sleeve – start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease 2 stitches in each transition between body and sleeves. Start 2 stitches before A.2/A.3, knit 2 together, work A.2/A.3, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

ELEVATION (for back of neck):
Cut the strand. Continue working as follows – starting after 16-17-19-21-23-25 stitches on the back piece (= mid back): Work stocking stitch, A.2 and A.3 as before.
Insert 1 marker in the next stitch on the row (= mid back). Start from the right side and work 36-37-39-41-43-45 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and work 73-75-79-83-87-91 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and work 67-69-73-77-81-85 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and work 61-63-67-71-75-79 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and work to mid back. Cut the strand. The round now starts at the same place as before, i.e. 16-17-19-21-23-25 stitches towards the right (seen from the right side) at the marker mid back.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked bottom up. The body is worked in the round with circular needle and the sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles before they are worked together and you work the yoke in the round with circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 166-178-194-210-226-246 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Nepal. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and work stocking stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after 83-89-97-105-113-123 stitches (the marker threads mark the sides of the garment). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 11 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread (= 4 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 4 cm a total of 7 times = 138-150-166-182-198-218 stitches. When the piece measures 37-37-38-38-38-38 cm cast off 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of each marker thread (= 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches in each side) = 61-67-73-81-87-95 stitches on the front/back piece. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVES:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and Nepal. Knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2). When the piece measures 6 cm change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round and decrease 8-8-8-6-8-8 stitches evenly on round = 36-36-40-42-44-44 stitches. Work stocking stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve). When the piece measures 8 cm increase 2 stitches on each side of the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 4-3-2½-2-2-1½ cm a total of 8-11-12-13-13-15 times = 52-58-64-68-70-74 stitches. When the piece measures 40-39-38-37-36-34 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of longer yoke) cast off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 44-50-54-58-58-60 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work 1 more sleeve.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle size 5.5 mm as the body where you have cast off stitches for the armholes = 210-234-254-278-290-310 stitches.
Continue working as follows – start the round after 5-4-3-3-4-5 stitches on the back piece: Work * 51-59-67-75-79-85 stitches stocking stitch, A.1 (= 12 stitches), 30-34-36-40-42-46 stitches stocking stitch, A.1 over the next 12 stitches *, work from *-* a total of 2 times. When A.1 has been completed in height 1 time, there are 226-250-270-294-306-326 stitches on the needle.
Now continue working as follows: Work * 51-59-67-75-79-85 stitches stocking stitch, A.2 (= 16 stitches), 30-34-36-40-42-46 stitches stocking stitch, A.3 (= 16 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times. Continue with pattern and decrease to RAGLAN – see description above.
Decrease every 4th round 6-6-6-6-7-7 times, then every 2nd round 8-10-11-13-13-15 times (= a total of 14-16-17-19-20-22 times).
After all the decreases, there are 114-122-134-142-146-150 stitches on the round. For a better fit, you can now work an ELEVATION in the back of the neck – see description above.
On the next round, decrease 4 stitches over each of A.2 and A.3 = 98-106-118-126-130-134 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: Work * 33-35-39-43-47-51 stitches stocking stitch and decrease 3-4-7-9-10-11 stitches evenly on round, knit the next 16-18-20-20-18-16 stitches together 2 and 2, *, work from *-* a total of 2 times = 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches. Purl 1 round. The yoke measures approx. 21-23-24-26-28-30 cm.

NECK:
Knit 1 round and increase 8 stitches evenly on round = 84-88-92-96-100-104 stitches. Change to short circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn over twisted to prevent holes
= place 4 stitches on cable needle in front of the piece, knit 4 stitches, knit 4 stitches from cable needle
= place 4 stitches on cable needle behind the piece, knit 4 stitches, knit 4 stitches from cable needle
