INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.5).

MOSS STITCH:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Repeat round 2.

DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 312 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 48) = 6.5. In this example, you knit alternately every 5th and 6th stitch and every 6th and 7th stitch together.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the garment losing its elasticity when working pattern, it is important that the strands do not tighten at the back of the piece. You can increase a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

INCREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 1 stitch before the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

CAST OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can cast off with ½ needle size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

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

BODY:
Cast on 228-258-258-282-282-312 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and grey. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches MOSS STITCH – see description above *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work in this way for 5 cm. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 36-42-42-42-42-48 stitches evenly on round - read DECREASE TIP above = 192-216-216-240-240-264 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round and 1 marker after 96-108-108-120-120-132 stitches (= the sides) and allow the markers to follow your work upwards. Continue with stocking stitch – REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 24-25-26-27-28-29 cm work pattern as follows:
Work A.1 in the round (= 24-27-27-30-30-33 repeats of 8 stitches) – read PATTERN and KNITTING TIP above. When the whole of A.1 has been completed in height, work A.2 in the round (= 64-72-72-80-80-88 repeats of 3 stitches). When the whole of diagram A.2 has been completed in height, work pattern as follows: Work A.3a (= 18 stitches) 0-1-1-0-0-1 time, work A.3b (= 24 stitches) 8-8-8-10-10-10 times and A.3c (= 6 stitches) 0-1-1-0-0-1 time. When the whole of diagram A.3 has been completed in height, the piece measures approx. 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm.
Work the next round as follows: Work A.4 (= 64-72-72-80-80-88 repeats of 3 stitches) to end of round. Continue in the round according to A.4 until the piece measures 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm – finish after working a round marked with arrow in the diagram. Work the next round in A.4 and cast off 5-5-5-9-9-9 stitches in each side for armholes (= 2-2-2-4-4-4 stitches before/3-3-3-5-5-5 stitches after both markers). Front and back pieces are now worked back and forth separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 91-103-103-111-111-123 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Continue back and forth until the whole of diagram A.4 have been completed 1 time in height, with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, in each side. Now work pattern as follows: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.5a (= 4 stitches) a total of 22-25-25-27-27-30 times in width, work A.5b (= 1 stitch) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When the whole of diagram A.5 has been completed in height, continue working in stocking stitch and grey with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until finished length. When the piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm cast off the middle 25-25-27-27-27-29 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Cast off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 32-38-37-41-41-46 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm and cast off - read CAST OFF TIP. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 91-103-103-111-111-123 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Continue in the same way as for back piece until the piece measures 60-62-64-65-67-69 cm. Now place the middle 13-13-15-15-15-17 stitches on 1 thread for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Cast off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 3 times = 32-38-37-41-41-46 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm and cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed/short circular needle.
Cast on 36-36-42-42-42-42 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and grey. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches moss stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 3 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 4-2-6-6-4-2 stitches evenly on round = 32-34-36-36-38-40 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve) and allow the marker to follow your work upwards. Continue with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 4-6-6-6-5-8 cm increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 4-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm a total of 11-12-12-14-15-15 times = 54-58-60-64-68-70 stitches. When the piece measures 46-43-44-42-43-41 cm cast off the middle 8-8-8-10-10-10 stitches (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 stitches on each side of the marker) and work a small sleeve cap back and forth on needle. Work stocking stitch and cast off at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: Cast off 5-5-6-5-6-6 stitches 2 times and cast off the remaining stitches. The sleeve measures approx. 48-45-46-44-45-43 cm. Work another sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the cast-off edges. Sew in the sleeves, inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 66-78 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread in front) with double pointed needles size 4.5mm and grey. Knit 1 round where you adjust the number of stitches to 66-66-72-72-78-78 stitches. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches moss stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 6 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
