EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

----------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 144 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 28) = 5.1. In this example knit approx. every 4th and 5th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2:
Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased). Repeat at the other marker thread (= 4 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

RAGLAN:
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of every A.1 as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before A.1 and knit 2 together, knit A.1, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked. Repeat at each of the remaining repetitions of A.1 (= 8 stitches decreased on round).

START THE PIECE HERE:

----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece in the round on circular needle, bottom up. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.

BODY:
Cast on 144-152-160-176-192-212 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm with 1 strand Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm, knit 1 round while decreasing 28-28-28-32-36-44 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 = 116-124-132-144-156-168 stitches. Then work in stocking stitch in the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 10 cm, insert marker thread at beginning of round (= in the side) and a marker thread after 58-62-66-72-78-84 stitches (= in the sides). On next round decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker threads – read DECREASE TIP-2. Repeat decrease when piece measures 20 cm = 108-116-124-136-148-160 stitches. Continue to work until piece measures 26-28-26-28-26-28 cm. On next round cast off 8 stitches in each side (= 4 stitches on each side of marker threads in each side) = 46-50-54-60-66-72 stitches for front and back piece. Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 32-32-36-36-36-40 stitches on double pointed needles size 7 mm with 1 strand Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 6 cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 7-7-9-9-7-7 stitches evenly = 25-25-27-27-29-33 stitches. Insert a marker thread at beginning of round. Move the marker thread upwards when working. When piece measures 7-8-8-7-8-8 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3-2-2-2-1-2 cm 8-10-10-11-12-10 times in total = 41-45-47-49-53-53 stitches. When piece measures 29-30-26-27-23-24 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread every other round 5 times = 51-55-57-59-63-63 stitches. On next round cast off 8 stitches mid under sleeve (i.e. 4 stitches on each side of marker thread) = 43-47-49-51-55-55 stitches. Work another sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Now slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 178-194-206-222-242-254 stitches. Insert a marker thread mid back and begin round here. Now work pattern as follows: * Knit 18-20-22-24-27-29, work A.1 (= 10 stitches on first round) over the last 5-5-5-6-6-7 stitches on back piece/(= front piece when this sentence is repeated) and the first 5-5-5-4-4-3 stitches on sleeve, knit over the next 33-37-39-43-47-49 stitches, work A.1 over the last 5-5-5-4-4-3 stitches on sleeve and the first 5-5-5-6-6-7 stitches on front piece/(= back piece when this sentence is repeated), knit 18-20-22-24-27-29 *, work from *-* 1 more time on round.
Continue pattern in the round like this. NOTE: To avoid a tight knitting tension vertically it is important that the yarn overs in diagram A.1 are not too short - yarn overs must be 4½ cm long! On 4th round in diagram begin decrease for RAGLAN - read explanation above. Decrease like this every 4th round 5-3-5-3-4-3 times and every other round 10-14-13-17-18-20 times (= 15-17-18-20-22-23 rounds in total with decrease) = 66-66-70-70-74-78 stitches (there are now 13 stitches in every A.1). When A.1 has been worked vertically, repeat the last 6 rounds in diagram vertically. When all decreases are done and last round in A.1 is finished vertically, work next round as follows: * Knit 1-1-2-2-3-4, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased), work A.2 (= 13 stitches increase to 19 stitches) over A.1, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over (= 2 stitches decreased), work A.2 over A.1, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 1-1-2-2-3-4 *, work from *-* 1 more time on round = 86-86-90-90-94-98 stitches (there are now 19 stitches in every A.2). Work next round in the different sizes as follows:

Size S, M, L and XL:
* Knit 1-1-1-1, purl 1-1-2-2, A.2, purl next stitch together with first stitch in A.2 and work the remaining stitches in A.2, purl 1-1-2-2, knit 1 *, work from *-* 1 more time on round. 1 stitch is now decreased on each shoulder (= 2 stitches decreased).

Size XXL and XXXL:
* Knit 1-1, purl 1-2, knit 2-2, A.2, purl next stitch together with first stitch in A.2 and work the remaining stitches in A.2, knit 2-2, purl 1-2, knit 1-1 *, work from *-* 1 more time on round. 1 stitch is now decreased on each shoulder (= 2 stitches decreased).

All sizes:
Work 1 more round with next round in A.2 and knit over knit and purl over purl over the remaining stitches.

NECK EDGE:
Switch to circular needle size 7 mm. Continue with the remaining rounds in A.2 and knit over knit and purl over purl over the remaining stitches on needle. When entire A.2 has been worked vertically, 48-48-52-52-56-60 stitches remain on round. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Piece measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm from shoulder and down.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= work 2 stitches in a stitch, i.e. work in front and back loop of stitch (= 1 stitch increased)
= insert right needle through the middle of the 3 knit stitches 4 rounds below, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right side so that yarn over is 4½ cm long (yarn over must not be too tight - the knitting tension will be too tight vertically), knit 3, insert right needle through same stitch, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right side so that yarn over is 4½ cm long
= slip 1st stitch (= yarn over made on previous round) knitwise, knit 3, slip next stitch (= yarn over made on previous round) purlwise
= knit 2 stitches twisted together
= knit 2 together
= purl 2 together
= this square is not a stitch because stitch was decreased earlier, go directly to next symbol in diagram

Bonjour, Dans les diagrammes A1 et A2, on ne voit jamais le symbole "2 mailles ensemble envers". Est-ce normal ou une erreur ? Merci de votre réponse. Claudine
