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

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up. The piece is divided when you decrease for the armhole and the back and front piece are finished back and forth separately. Knit up stitches around the armhole for sleeves and continue working in the round with double pointed needles down the sleeve. The collar is worked with short circular needle to finish.

BODY:
Cast on 99-107-115-123-131-143 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Knit 1 round, then work rib in the different sizes as follows:
S-L- XXL-XXXL:
* Knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* over the first 12-16-20-24 stitches, knit 2, work A.1 (= 25 stitches), * knit 2, purl 2 * over the remaining 60-72-84-92 stitches.
M-XL:
* Purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the first 16-20 stitches, work A.1 (= 25 stitches), * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* over the next 64-76 stitches and finish with knit 2 stitches.

ALL SIZES:
Continue rib in this way until the piece measures 6 cm. Change to circular needle size 10 mm. Work 0-0-0-0-0-1 stitch stocking stitch, the round now begins here, insert 1 marker thread (the round is now displaced 0-0-0-0-0-1 stitch). The next round is worked as follows: Work stocking stitch over the first 14-16-18-20-22-25 stitches, A.2 (= 25 stitches) over A.1, stocking stitch over the next 14-16-18-20-22-25 stitches, insert 1 marker thread (= front piece), work stocking stitch over the last 46-50-54-58-62-68 stitches.
Continue the pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm cast off stitches for armhole on the next round as follows (adjust so that the next round is 1st-3rd-5th-7th-9th-11th or 13th round in A.2): Cast off the first 2-2-2-2-2-3 stitches on the round, work the next 49-53-57-61-65-69 stitches as before (= front piece), cast off the next 4-4-4-4-4-6 stitches, work until there are 2-2-2-2-2-3 stitches left, cast off these stitches. Cut the strand. Each part is now finished separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 42-46-50-54-58-62 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch over all stitches (the first row is worked from the wrong side). When the piece measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm from where you cast off stitches for armhole (the piece measures a total of 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm) cast off the middle 16-16-18-18-20-20 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately = 13-15-16-18-19-21 stitches on the shoulder. Continue with stocking stitch and decrease 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 12-14-15-17-18-20 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm from where you cast off stitches for armhole (the piece measures a total of 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm). Cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 49-53-57-61-65-69 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 48-50-50-52-52-54 cm (the first row is worked from the wrong side). Now place stitches on 1 thread for the neck as follows: Work 16-18-19-21-22-24 stitches as before, work the next 17-17-19-19-21-21 stitches as before but decrease 7 stitches evenly over these stitches, then place them on a thread (= 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches on the thread), work the remaining 16-18-19-21-22-24 stitches as before.
Each shoulder is now finished separately. Continue with knit and purl as before over the remaining stitches in A.1 and cast off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 12-14-15-17-18-20 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, match with the back piece. Cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.
