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.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

Increase for raglan on each side of every marker thread (= 8 stitches increased on round): 
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs to make holes.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use total number of stitches
on needle (i.e. 36 stitches) and divide with number of increases to be
done (i.e. 2) = 18. In this example make 1 yarn over after approx.
every 18th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to body):
All increases are done from right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next round purl yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease after 1 edge stitch as follows: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over
Decrease before 1 edge stitch as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 together, work last stitch on needle.

Worked top down. First work the yoke in the round on circular needle, then work the body in the round down to vent in each side and finally work front and back piece separately. Work sleeves back and forth on circular needle.

Cast on 36-39-39-42-42-45 stitches on circular needle size 12 mm with 1 strand Big Delight and 1 strand Melody (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round. Work rib (knit 1/purl 2) for 5 cm. Insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Knit 1 round while increasing 2-1-3-8-10-9 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly) = 38-40-42-50-52-54 stitches. Insert 4 marker threads in piece without working stitches as follows:
Insert first marker thread after 7-8-8-10-11-11 stitches (= half back piece), second marker thread after another 4 stitches (= sleeve), third marker thread after another 15-16-17-21-22-23 stitches (= front piece), fourth marker thread after another 4 stitches (= sleeve), there are now 8-8-9-11-11-12 stitches for half back piece.
Work in stocking stitch in the round, AT THE SAME TIME on first round begin increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above. Increase like this every other round 10-11-11-12-13-14 times in total = 118-128-130-146-156-166 stitches. After last increase, knit 1 round, then work 1 round while only increasing for raglan on sleeves (= 4 stitches increased on round) = 122-132-134-150-160-170 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Piece should now measure 23-25-25-27-29-31 cm from marker thread after rib in the neck mid front.
Work next round as follows: Work 17-19-19-22-24-25 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 26-28-28-30-32-34 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 4-4-6-6-6-6 stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work 35-38-39-45-48-51 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 26-28-28-30-32-34 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 4-4-6-6-6-6 stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the remaining 18-19-20-23-24-26 stitches on needle (= half back piece). Insert a marker thread in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

= 78-84-90-102-108-114 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under each sleeve (= 2-2-3-3-3-3 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Continue in the round in stocking stitch. When piece measures 10 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread in each side - read INCREASE TIP-2 = 82-88-94-106-112-118 stitches. Continue to work in the round until piece measures 16-16-18-18-18-18 cm. Cut the yarn. Slip the 41-44-47-53-56-59 stitches between the 2 marker threads on front piece on a stitch holder, and continue back and forth over the 41-44-47-53-56-59 stitches on back piece as follows – from right side:
2 stitches in garter stitch, (knit 1, purl 2) until 3 stitches remain on needle, knit 1, 2 stitches in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until rib measures 10 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Jumper measures approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm from shoulder and down.
Slip the 41-44-47-53-56-59 stitches from stitch holder back on circular needle and work rib on front piece the same way as on back piece.

Work sleeves back and forth on circular needle and sew together when finished. Slip the 26-28-28-30-32-34 stitch from stitch holder back on circular needle size 12 mm, and cast on 2-2-3-3-3-3 new stitches in each side = 30-32-34-36-38-40 stitches. Work in stocking stitch back and forth over all stitches. When piece measures 3-2-3-3-4 cm, decrease 1 stitch in each side of piece – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 4-3-3-2-2-1 cm 5-6-6-7-7-8 times in total = 20-20-22-22-24-24 stitches. When sleeve measures 19-17-18-16-15-14 cm, work 1 round while increasing 1-1-2-2-0-0 stitches evenly = 21-21-24-24-24-24 stitches. Work rib as follows: purl 1, * knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 stitches remain, knit 1, purl 1. Continue rib like this with knit over knit and purl over purl until rib measures 8 cm. Cast off knitting from right side. Sleeve measures approx. 27-25-26-24-23-22 cm from division.

Sew seams under sleeves in outer loops of edge stitches to avoid a chunky seam. Sew the opening under the sleeves.
