Not sure which size you should choose? Then it might help you to know that the model in the picture is approx. 170 cm and uses size S or M. If you are making a jumper, cardigan, dress or similar garment, you will find a graphic with the measurements of the finished garment (in cm) at the bottom of the pattern.

INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Work the entire pattern in stocking stitch. Choose diagram for your size.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle number when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

KNITTING TIP-2 (applies to yoke):
If knitting tension is incorrect in height and there are more rows vertically on 10 cm than stated in pattern the yoke will be too short and the armhole too small. This can be compensated by working 1 extra row in stocking stitch evenly on yoke.

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 272 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 44) = 6.1. In this example work approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP:
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased).

RAGLAN:
Decrease for raglan on each side of every A.4 as follows:
Decrease 1 stitch after A.4 as follows: Slip last stitch in A.4, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease 1 stitch before A.4 as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before A.4, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). I.e. decrease 2 stitches at every A.4 and 8 stitches in total on round.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles, change to short circular needle when needed. Join the parts together and work yoke in the round.

BODY:
Cast on 272-284-316-328-368-384 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Black. Work rib (= knit 2/purl 2). When piece measures 5 cm, switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work 1 round in stocking stitch while decreasing 44-44-52-52-56-60 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP = 228-240-264-276-312-324 stitches. Knit 1 round as follows: Insert 1 marker in first stitch, knit 113-119-131-137-155-161 stitches, insert 1 marker in next stitch, knit the rest of round. Markers shows sides of garment. Then work A.1 (= 6 stitches) over all stitches (= 38-40-44-46-52-54 repetitions in width) - read KNITTING TIP-1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.1a vertically. When piece measures 39-41-40-42-41-43 cm, work A.2 over A.1. When you have worked up to arrow in A.2, work next round in A.2 as follows: Cast off 4 stitches, work the next 107-113-125-131-149-155 stitches as before, cast off the next 7 stitches, work the next 107-113-125-131-149-155 stitches as before and cast off the last 3 stitches. Piece measures approx. 44-44-44-45-45-45 cm. Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVES:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to a short circular needle when needed. Cast on 48-52-56-60-64-64 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib (= knit 2/purl 2). When piece measures 5 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work 1 round in stocking stitch while decreasing 6-8-8-10-12-10 stitches evenly = 42-44-48-50-52-54 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Work 1 round with black, then work next round as follows: Work 0-1-0-1-2-0 stitches A.3, work A.1 over the next 42-42-48-48-48-54 stitches (= 7-7-8-8-8-9 repetitions), finish with 0-1-0-1-2-0 stitches A.3. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.1a. When piece measures 6 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread (= 2 stitches increased) - read INCREASE TIP! Increase like this every 3-2½-2-1½-1½-1½ cm 12-14-15-17-19-21 times in total = 66-72-78-84-90-96 stitches. Work stitches in A.3 and the increased stitches in the pattern.
When piece measures 38-39-37-37-34-35 cm, work A.2 over A.1. When all stitches under sleeve have been increased, work A.2 11-12-13-14-15-16 times in total in width. When you have worked up to arrow in A.2, work next round as follows: Cast off 4 stitches, work the next 59-65-71-77-83-89 stitches as before, cast off the last 3 stitches. Sleeve measures approx. 43-42-41-40-38-37 cm. Knit another sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 332-356-392-416-464-488 stitches. Begin round in transition between left sleeve and back piece before continuing. Work as follows: Work A.4 (= 2 stitches, begin at arrow marking your size), continue pattern as before over the next 103-109-121-127-145-151 stitches, A.4 (= back piece), work pattern as before over the next 59-65-71-77-83-89 stitches (= right sleeve), A.4, continue pattern as before over the next 103-109-121-127-145-151 stitches, A.4 (= front piece), work pattern as before over the next 59-65-71-77-83-89 stitches (= left sleeve) – read KNITTING TIP-2. Continue pattern like this and decrease for RAGLAN – see explanation above, every other round 26-29-31-33-36-39 times in total = 124-124-144-152-176-176 stitches. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to black. Work 1 round in black. Yoke measures approx. 19-21-23-24-26-28 cm.
An elevation in the back of neck can be worked to get a better fit so that yoke is somewhat higher in the neck. This elevation can be skipped, to make the neck the same at the front and back. Work elevation in the back of neck or start to work the neck edge if you don’t want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this paragraph if you do not want an elevation. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (this marks the beginning of rounds after elevation has been worked).
Work until mid back, insert 1 marker. Begin from right side with black and knit as before until 30-30-34-34-40-40 stitches have been worked past marker, turn, tighten yarn and purl 60-60-68-68-80-80. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 54-54-61-61-72-72, turn, tighten yarn and purl 48-48-54-54-64-64. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 42-42-48-48-56-56, turn, tighten yarn and purl 36-36-42-42-48-48. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 30-30-35-35-40-40, turn, tighten yarn and purl 24-24-28-28-32-32, turn, tighten yarn and work mid back. Cut the yarn. Round now begins at the marker thread, i.e. in the transition between left sleeve and back piece.

NECK EDGE:
On next round decrease as follows: * Knit 42-42-52-56-68-68 and decrease 2-0-8-8-18-16 stitches evenly, work the next 20 stitches together 2 by 2 (= 10 stitches decreased) *, work from *-* 2 times in total = 100-104-108-116-120-124 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work next round as follows: * Knit 2, purl 2, knit 1, make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), purl 2, knit 2, make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), purl 1 *, work from *-* until 0-4-8-16-0-4 stitches remain, work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) over the remaining stitches = 120-124-128-136-144-148 stitches. Work yarn overs twisted in rib (i.e. knit 2/purl 2) on next round to avoid holes. When rib measures 3 cm, cast off knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew opening under each sleeve in front loop of outermost stiches.
