EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

ELEVATION (in back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid back). Start from the right side with light grey and knit 16-17-18-19-20-21 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 32-34-36-38-40-42 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 48-51-54-57-60-63 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 64-68-72-76-80-84 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 80-85-90-95-100-105 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 96-102-108-114-120-126 stitches. Turn tighten the strand and knit to mid back. Then work YOKE as described in the text.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back are not tight. Use a size larger needle when working pattern if this is a problem.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Find your size in the diagrams.
The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 99 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 29) = 3.4. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 3rd and 4th stitch (approx.). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
NOTE: At arrow-2 and arrow-5 you increase in most of the sizes on a row of pattern; here it is important to adjust the increases so that you increase in stitches worked in the back-ground colour.  

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves): 
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).

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck, yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needle, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 99-105-108-111-117-123 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm and grey. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2). When you have worked 1 round of rib, change to light grey. Continue rib until the neck measures 4 cm from the cast on edge. Knit 1 round where you increase 29-31-36-41-43-45 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 128-136-144-152-160-168 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Knit 1 round.
You can now work an elevation in the back of the neck so that the yoke is slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same front and back – work ELEVATION – read description above, or go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
Read KNITTING TIP and work A.1 in the round (= 16-17-18-19-20-21 repeats of 8 stitches). Continue this pattern.
AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1 increase evenly as described below – read INCREASE TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
On the round marked with arrow-1 increase 24-24-32-32-32-32 stitches evenly on round = 152-160-176-184-192-200 stitches (there is now room for 19-20-22-23-24-25 repeats of 8 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-2 increase 40-48-56-56-64-72 stitches evenly on round = 192-208-232-240-256-272 stitches (there is now room for 24-26-29-30-32-34 repeats of 8 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-3 increase 32-40-40-48-48-56 stitches evenly on round = 224-248-272-288-304-328 stitches (there is now room for 28-31-34-36-38-41 repeats of 8 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-4 increase 28-34-34-42-50-50 stitches evenly on round = 252-282-306-330-354-378 stitches (there is now room for 42-47-51-55-59-63 repeats of 6 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-5 increase 22-22-20-26-36-40 stitches evenly on round = 274-304-326-356-390-418 stitches.
When the last round in A.1 is left, the piece measures approx. 23-23-25-27-29-30 cm from the cast-on edge mid front. If the piece measures less than this, you can continue working with grey (in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL) or dark grey (in size XXXL) to correct length.
The last round in A.1 is worked as follows from mid back: Work 39-44-47-52-58-63 stitches as before (= ½ back piece), place the next 58-64-68-74-78-82 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 79-88-95-104-117-127 stitches as before (= front piece), place the next 58-64-68-74-78-82 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the next 40-44-48-52-59-64 stitches as before (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 174-192-210-228-258-282 stitches. Work A.2 in the round (= 29-32-35-38-43-47 repeats of 6 stitches). Continue this pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on the round marked with arrow-6 in A.2 increase 24 stitches evenly in all sizes = 198-216-234-252-282-306 stitches (there is now room for 33-36-39-42-47-51 repeats of 6 stitches). When A.2 has been completed, work stocking stitch with dark grey.
When the piece measures 30-32-32-32-32-33 cm from the division, knit 1 round where you increase 48-54-60-66-72-78 stitches evenly on round = 246-270-294-318-354-384 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after each 9th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches).
The jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 58-64-68-74-78-82 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 66-72-78-84-90-96 stitches on the needles. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve and allow the marker thread to follow your work onwards. The marker thread will be used when you decrease under the sleeve.
Work the last round in A.1A so that A.1 finishes in the same way on both body and sleeve. Work A.2A in the round (= 11-12-13-14-15-16 repeats of 6 stitches). When A.2A has been completed continue with stocking stitch and dark grey.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 2 cm from the division decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 1 cm a total of 0-0-0-5-8-8 times then every 2 cm a total of 3-5-7-0-0-0 times and finally every 3½-3-2½-2-2-1½ cm a total of 8-8-8-12-11-13 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 36-36-35-33-31-31 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke).
Knit 1 round where you increase 7-8-9-7-8-9 stitches evenly on round = 51-54-57-57-60-63 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 6 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after each 9th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The sleeve measures approx. 42-42-41-39-37-37 cm from the division and down. Work the other sleeve in the same way.
