INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
Se diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. 

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the number of stitches you are increasing/decreasing over (e.g. 90 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 32) = 2.8. In this example, increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 3rd stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
When decreasing, knit approx. every 2nd and 3rd stitch together.

RAGLAN: 
Increase on each side of each repeat of A.1 (= 8 increases on the round).
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round purl the yarn overs to leave holes.

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
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.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles. The round begins mid back.

YOKE:
Cast on 101-105-109-113-118-126 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Muskat or Sky. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 round where you increase 21-21-25-29-32-32 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 122-126-134-142-150-158 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and knit 1 round.
Now work pattern as follows: Knit 13-14-16-18-20-22 stitches (= half back piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1 (= 12 stitches), make 1 yarn over, knit 11 stitches (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, knit 26-28-32-36-40-44 stitches (= front piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, knit 11 stitches (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, knit 13-14-16-18-20-22 stitches (= half back piece). The first increase to raglan is now finished (= 8 stitches increased on round). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue the pattern and increase to RAGLAN - see description above, every 2nd round a total of 22-25-27-30-33-36 times (including the first increase) = 298-326-350-382-414-446 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and pattern A.1 in each transition between body and sleeves until the piece measures 20-22-23-25-27-29 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work the first 41-45-49-54-59-64 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under the sleeve, work the next 82-90-98-108-118-128 stitches (= front piece), place the next 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under the sleeve, work the remaining 41-45-49-54-59-64 stitches (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. Insert a marker thread here. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 184-200-220-240-264-288 stitches
Insert 1 marker thread in each side (i.e. in the middle of the10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under the sleeve in each side). Continue in the round with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 4 cm from the separation, increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 12th-12th-14th-14th-14th-14th round a total of 7-7-6-6-6-6 times = 212-228-244-264-288-312 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm from the separation. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work 3 ridges. Cast off with knit. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you can cast off with a larger needle. The jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 4 mm and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under the sleeve = 77-83-89-95-103-111 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches knitted up (= mid under the sleeve/side of the jumper). Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 4 cm from the separation decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th-5th-4th-4th-3rd-3rd round a total of 15-18-20-22-26-29 times = 47-47-49-51-51-53 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 44-42-42-40-39-37 cm from the separation. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work 3 ridges. Cast off with knit. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you can cast off with a larger needle. Work the other sleeve in the same way.
