INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 52 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 8) = 6.5. In this example, make 1 yarn over after alternately the 6th and 7th stitch. On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. The whole diagram is worked in stocking stitch. When A.1 has been completed in height continue with light brown and stocking stitch to finished length.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important the strands at the back of the piece do not pull. You can increase a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER: 
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles/circular needle from the neck down to the front legs. You then divide for the front legs and the back and chest pieces are worked separately back and forth. Continue working in the round down the body and then back and forth towards the tail. The legs are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

Cast on 52-72-92 stitches with double pointed needles size US 2.5 (3 mm) (circular needle in size M) with red. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 2 1/3 -3-4 in = the collar. Change to double pointed needles size US 4 (3.5 mm) (circular needle in size M) and work 1 round stocking stitch where you increase 8-12-16 stitches evenly on round - read INCREASE TIP = 60-84-108 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Now work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 (= 5-7-9 repeats of 12 stitches) - read PATTERN and KNITTING TIP above. When the piece measures 3 1/2-5-6 2/3 inches cast off for the front legs as follows: Knit 2 stitches together, knit 9-9-21, knit 2 together, place these 11-11-23 stitches on a thread (= chest piece) and work to end of round (= back piece). 

BACK PIECE: 
= 47-71-83 stitches. Continue the pattern back and forth with double pointed needles/circular needle until the piece measures 6-8-10 2/3 in, finish after a row from the wrong side. The leg openings measure approx. 2 1/3 -3-4 in – place the stitches on a thread.

CHEST PIECE:
Place the 11-11-23 stitches from the thread back on the needle and work pattern back and forth – work the same number of rows as on the back piece. 

JUMPER: 
Place all the stitches on the same double pointed needles/circular needle and, in addition, knit up 1 new stitch in each side between the back and chest pieces = 60-84-108 stitches. Continue the pattern; when diagram A.1 has been worked in height continue with light brown. When the piece measures a total of 7 1/2-10 2/3-14 in cast off the middle 9-13-17 stitches mid under chest and continue working the piece back and forth = 51-71-91 stitches. Continue to cast off in each side every 2nd row as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 1-2-3 times, 1 stitch 8-9-10 times, 2 stitches 1-2-3 times and 3 stitches 1 time = 21-31-41 stitches left on the needle. The piece measures approx. 10 2/3-14 1/2-18 1/2 in. 

ASSEMBLY:
Knit up stitches around the cast-off edge with light brown on double pointed needles size 3 so that there are a total of approx. 84-108-140 stitches around the bottom edge of the jumper. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 1-1 1/4- 1 1/4 in, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. 

LEG: 
Knit up approx. 36-44-52 stitches with double pointed needles size US 2.5 (3 mm) and light brown, around the one front leg opening. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 1 1/4-1 1/2- 2 1/3 in, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. 
Repeat around the other opening.
