NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. Choose diagram for your size in A.2.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase as follows mid under sleeve - beg 1 stitch before marker: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease 2 stitches in every transition between body and sleeves. Begin 3 stitches before marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

KNITTING TIP:
If knitting tension is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra round without decrease evenly spaced between decrease 
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle, bottom up.

Cast on 132-142-150-150-150-160 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Air. Knit 1 round, then work rib as follows:

SIZE 2 years:
Knit 1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, A.1 (= 12 stitches), A.2 (= 6 stitches), A.1, A.2. A.1, * purl 3, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the next 15 stitches, purl 3, A.1, A.2, A.1, A.2, A.1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, knit 1.

SIZE 3/4 - 5/6 - 7/8 - 9/10 years:
Purl 1, knit 2, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, A.1 (= 12 stitches), A.2 (= 6-8-8-8 stitches), A.1, A.2, A.1, * purl 3, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the next 20 stitches, purl 3, A.1, A.2, A.1, A.2, A.1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, knit 2, purl 2.

SIZE 11/12 years:
Knit 1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, A.1 (= 12 stitches), A.2 (= 8 stitches), A.1, A.2, A.1, * purl 3, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the next 25 stitches, purl 3, A.1, A.2, A.1, A.2, A.1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, knit 2, purl 3, knit 1.

ALL SIZES:
Continue with rib like this for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm.

Then work as follows:
Purl the first 9-11-11-11-11-14 stitches, A.3 (= 12 stitches), purl 6-6-8-8-8-8, A.3, purl 6-6-8-8-8-8, A.3, purl the next 18-23-23-23-23-28 stitches, A.3, purl 6-6-8-8-8-8, A.3, purl 6-6-8-8-8-8, A.3, purl over the last 9-12-12-12-12-14 stitches. On next round adjust number of stitches over the 18-23-23-23-23-28 stitches purl in each side to 18-22-20-24-26-28 stitches = 132-140-144-152-156-160 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of purl stitches (= 66-70-72-76-78-80 stitches on back piece and front piece). Continue with A.3 and purl as before upwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 20-23-26-29-32-35 cm, cast off 6 stitches in each side for armholes (cast off 3 stitches on each side of both marker treads). There are 60-64-66-70-72-74 stitches on back piece and front piece. Put piece aside and work the sleeves. 

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to short circular needle when needed. Cast on 30-30-30-35-35-35 stitches on double pointed needles size 5 mm with Air. Knit 1 round, then work rib = knit 2/purl 3. When piece measures 4 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 6 mm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 4-4-4-7-7-5 stitches evenly = 26-26-26-28-28-30 stitches. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Then work in stocking stitch. When piece measures 6 cm, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3-3½-3½-4½-4½-5 cm 5-6-7-6-7-7 times in total = 36-38-40-40-42-44 stitches. When piece measures 21-26-29-33-37-41 cm, cast off 6 stitches mid under sleeve (cast off 3 stitches on each side of marker thread) = 30-32-34-34-36-38 stitches. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE: 
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 180-192-200-208-216-224 stitches. Insert a marker thread in all transitions between sleeves and body (= 4 marker threads). Continue with pattern as before and decrease for RAGLAN - see explanation above. 

Decrease every 4th round 5-5-6-5-5-6 times and every other round 4-5-5-6-6-6 times = 9-10-11-11-12 times in total. When there are not enough stitches in each side towards the raglan lines to make the cables in A.3, decrease 6 stitches in A.3 in each side by knitting 2 by 2 stitches together. On last decrease for raglan decrease 6 stitches the same way over the two middle repetitions of A.3.

After all decreases are done, 72-76-76-84-92-92 stitches remain on round. Knit 1 round over all stitches while decreasing 12-16-16-19-22-22 stitches evenly = 60-60-60-65-70-70 stitches. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work rib = knit 2/purl 3 for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY: 
Sew the opening under the sleeves.
