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.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

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.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Front and back pieces are worked top down. You work back and forth on needle until the armholes have been finished, then put the pieces together and continue working in the round. The sleeves are worked at the end.

FRONT PIECE:
RIGHT SHOULDER:
Cast on 24-26-26-29-29-33 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 RIDGE – see description above. The next row is worked as follows - from the right side: 7-9-10-13-14-18 stitches stocking stitch, purl 2, A.1 (= 8 stitches), purl 2, 5-5-4-4-3-3 stitches garter stitch. Continue with this pattern until the piece measures 3 cm; finish with a row from the right side. Lay the piece to one side and work the left shoulder.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Cast on 24-26-26-29-29-33 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 ridge. The next row is worked as follows - from the right side: 5-5-4-4-3-3 stitches garter stitch, purl 2, A.3 (= 8 stitches), purl 2, 7-9-10-13-14-18 stitches stocking stitch. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 3 cm; finish with a row from the right side – Note! Make sure that you have worked the same number of rows as on the right shoulder. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work the stitches from the left shoulder, cast on 19-19-21-21-23-23 new stitches, and work the stitches from the right shoulder = 67-71-73-79-81-89 stitches. The next row is worked as follows – from the right side: 7-9-10-13-14-18 stitches stocking stitch, purl 2, A.1, purl 2, garter stitch over the next 29 stitches, purl 2, A.3, purl 2, 7-9-10-13-14-18 stitches stocking stitch. When you have worked 2 ridges over the middle 29 stitches, continue with A.2 over these stitches. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm, finish after a row from the wrong side, lay the piece to one side and work the back piece.

BACK PIECE:
RIGHT SHOULDER:
Cast on 24-26-26-29-29-33 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 ridge. Then work stocking stitch. Continue until the piece measures 2 cm, finish after a row from the right side. Lay the piece to one side and work the left shoulder.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Cast on 24-26-26-29-29-33 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 ridge. Then work stocking stitch. Continue until the piece measures 2 cm, finish after a row from the right side. The next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: Work the stitches from the left shoulder, cast on 9-9-11-11-13-13 new stitches, and work the stitches from the right shoulder = 57-61-63-69-71-79 stitches. NOTE! There are fewer stitches cast on for the neck than on the front piece because the wave pattern in A.2 contracts in width. The next row is worked as follows – from the right side: 19-21-22-25-26-30 stitches stocking stitch, garter stitch over the next 19 stitches, 19-21-22-25-26-30 stitches stocking stitch. When you have worked 2 ridges over the middle 19 stitches, work stocking stitch over all stitches. Continue until the piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm, finish after a row from the wrong side.

BODY:
Work 1 row from the right side over the stitches on the back piece, cast on 6-6-8-8-12-12 new stitches, work the stitches from the front piece onto the needle and cast on 6-6-8-8-12-12 new stitches = 136-144-152-164-176-192 stitches. Continue with pattern and stocking stitch as before, the new stitches in each side are worked in stocking stitch. Continue until the piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm from where the pieces were worked together, work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Then cast off with knit. The jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVES:
The sleeves are worked bottom up and in the round with double pointed needles. Change to short circular needle when you have enough stitches.
Cast on 22-24-26-28-30-32 stitches with double pointed needles size 8 mm and 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges, then work stocking stitch in the round. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round = mid under sleeve. When the piece measures 6 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP! Increase every 6-6-5-5-4-3½ cm a total of 6-6-7-7-8-8 times = 34-36-40-42-46-48 stitches. When the piece measures 41-40-39-37-37-35 cm cast off 3 stitches on each side of the marker thread under the sleeve, the sleeve cap is finished back and forth on the needle. Continue with stocking stitch, at the same time cast off on each side every 2nd row as follows: 2 stitches 1 time, 1 stitch 1-1-2-2-2-2 times, 2 stitches 1 time, 3 stitches 1 time, then cast off the remaining stitches. The sleeve measures a total 48-47-47-45-45-43 cm. Work another sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves.
