Pattern instructions

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 THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size in A.2 and A.5.

INCREASE TIP (for body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, work 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Repeat at both marker threads (= 4 stitches increased).

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased). 
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round and increase 24 stitches evenly on the round by making yarn overs = 100-104-108-112-116-120 stitches. Purl 1 round; the yarn overs are purled twisted to avoid holes.
Then work pattern from mid back as follows:
Work as follows over half of the back piece: Work A.1 (= 5 stitches) over the first 5-5-5-5-5-10 stitches (= 1-1-1-1-1-2 times in width), A.2 (= 1-2-3-4-5-1 stitches).
Work as follows over the right sleeve: Work A.3 (= 16 stitches), A.4 (= 5 stitches), A.3 over 16 stitches.
Work as follows over the front piece: Work A.5 (= 2-3-4-5-1-2 stitches), A.1 over 10-10-10-10-15-20 stitches, A.2 over 1-2-3-4-5-1 stitches.
Work as follows over the left sleeve: Work A.3 over 16 stitches, A.4 over 5 stitches, A.3 over 16 stitches.
Work as follows over half of the back piece: Work A.5 over 2-3-4-5-1-2 stitches and A.1 over the last 5-5-5-5-10-10 stitches.
Continue the pattern and increase as shown in A.2, A.4 and A.5 (i.e. increase 1 stitch on each side of each A.3 = a total of 8 stitches increased every 2nd round). The increased stitches are worked twisted into the pattern as you go; there should not be holes. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Diagrams A.1 and A.3 are repeated in height. When A.2, A.4 and A.5 have been worked 1 time in height, continue to increase every 2nd round and the increased stitches are worked into the pattern as before. Increase on each side of each A.3 a total of 14-16-19-21-24-27 times (including the increases in A.2, A.4 and A.5) = 212-232-260-280-308-336 stitches. Then continue with garter stitch over garter stitch and knit over knit until the piece measures 20-22-23-25-27-29 cm from the neck edge.
Now divide for the sleeves and body as follows:
Purl 31-33-36-40-45-51 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 43-49-57-59-63-65 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-10-10-10-8 stitches under the sleeve, purl 63-67-73-81-91-103 stitches (= front piece), place the next 43-49-57-59-63-65 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-10-10-10-8 stitches under the sleeve, purl 32-34-37-41-46-52 stitches (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately.

BODY:
= 142-154-166-182-202-222 stitches.
Now continue working in stocking stitch, but with the wrong side out, i.e. turn the piece and knit from the wrong side in the round.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-10-10-10-10-8 stitches under each sleeve (= 71-77-83-91-101-111 stitches on each side of the marker threads).
When the piece measures 4 cm from where the body was separated from the sleeves, increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches increased) – read INCREASE TIP! Increase like this every 4 cm a total of 6-6-7-7-6-6 times = 166-178-194-210-226-246 stitches. When the piece measures 34-34-35-35-35-35 cm from where the body was separated from the sleeves, change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work 3 ridges. Cast off. Make sure you cast off loosely; you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary. The piece measures a total of approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Place the 43-49-57-59-63-65 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece onto double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-10-10-10-10-8 stitches cast onto body under the sleeve = 51-59-67-69-73-73 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches.
Continue with garter stitch over garter stitch and knit over knit; the 8-10-10-10-10-8 new stitches under the sleeve are worked in garter stitch.
When the piece measures 3 cm from where the sleeve was separated from the body, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP! Decrease every 5½-4-2½-2-2-2 cm a total of 6-8-12-12-14-12 times = 39-43-43-45-45-49 stitches.
AT THE SAME TIME when the sleeve measures 5 cm from where the sleeve was separated from the body, continue working in stocking stitch from the wrong side, i.e. turn the piece and knit from the wrong side in the round.
When the piece measures 38-37-36-34-33-31 cm change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib (purl 1, 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above) in the round from the wrong side, AT THE SAME TIME as on the first round you decrease 0-1-1-0-0-1 stitch = 39-42-42-45-45-48 stitches. Cast off when the piece measures 43-42-41-39-38-36 cm where the sleeve was separated from the body. Make sure you cast off loosely; you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary. The piece measures a total of 63-64-64-64-65-65 cm from the neck edge. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

For sleeve rib it is said: 38-37-36-34-33-31 cm change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib (purl 1, 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above) in the round from the wrong side, AT THE SAME TIME as on the first round you decrease 0-1-1-0-0-1 stitch = 39-42-42-45-45-48 stitches. The final quantity of 39-42-42-45-45-48 doesnt correspond to 38-37-36-34-33-31+ 0-1-1-0-0-1. What do I miss, please?

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 09:31:

Dear Oksana, after all dec are done there are 39-43-43-45-45-49 stitches left and you dec depending on the size either 1 or no st: on the first round you decrease 0-1-1-0-0-1 stitch, ie you dec only in 2nd, 3rd and last size = 39-42-42-45-45-48 sts. Happy knitting!

N Bellasalma 24.02.2018 - 13:23:

The knit/purl etc. diagrams for patterns are blank. In other words, I cannot tell which square should be knit and which should be purl. It is not just for this particular pattern but for all patterns. Can you please help me?

DROPS Design 24.02.2018 kl. 23:29:

Dear N Bellasalma, the diagrams shows up on our side, so we see no problem, however we will check it. Until the problem solved can you please try to check the diagrams for the different languages? First try the British version. If you see the diagrams, but not the explanations, the empty square means a knit stitch, an X in the square means a purl. Happy crafting!
