EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. When there is more than 6 stitches between colour change in pattern, twine the strands together, to avoid long jumps on wrong side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 70 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 5) = 14. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 14th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
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 work yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work yoke in the round, top down. Divide the piece into sleeves and body. Then work the body in the round on circular needle. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 70-74-76-83-86-90 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm with light grey. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round and increase 5-11-4-2-4-10 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 75-85-80-85-90-100 stitches.
Purl 1 round.
Then work A.1a (= 5 stitches) over all stitches (= 15-17-16-17-18-20 times in total in width).
Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1a has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.1b over A.1a.
When A.1b has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 210-238-256-272-288-320 stitches on needle.
Piece measures approx. 21-21-24-24-26-26 cm from cast-on edge. Now work with off white and stocking stitch. When piece measures 22-24-25-27-29-31 cm from cast-on edge, divide the piece sleeves and body as follows:
Work 30-32-35-38-41-47 stitches in stocking stitch (= half back piece), slip the next 44-52-56-58-60-64 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-12-12-12 new stitches under sleeve, work 62-68-73-79-85-97 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), slip the next 44-52-56-58-60-64 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-12-12-12 new stitches under sleeve and work 30-34-36-39-42-48 stitches in stocking stitch (= half back piece) = 138-150-164-180-192-216 stitches.

BODY:
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-12-12-12 new stitches in each side of piece (= 70-76-83-91-97-109 stitches on front piece). Work in stocking stitch. When piece measures 2 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 4 stitches increased) - read INCREASE TIP-2.
Increase like this every 3 cm 7-7-7-8-9-7 times in total = 166-178-192-212-228-244 stitches. When piece measures 29-29-30-30-30-30 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work in garter stitch over all stitches until body measures 31-31-32-32-32-32 cm, from where it was divided from sleeves. Then loosely cast off by knitting. Piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm in total from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 44-52-56-58-60-64 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and pick up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-12-12-12 stitches under sleeve with off white = 52-60-66-70-72-76 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-12-12-12 stitches under sleeve. Work stocking stitch in the round with off white. When sleeve measures 3 cm from where it was divided from body, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker (= 2 stitches decreased) - read DECREASE TIP.
Decrease like this every 6-2½-2-1½-1½-1½ cm 4-8-10-12-12-13 times in total = 44-44-46-46-48-50 stitches. When sleeve measures 38-36-36-34-32-31 cm from where it was divided from body, increase 0-0-2-2-0-2 stitches evenly = 44-44-48-48-48-52 stitches. Then switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and * knit 1, 3 stitches in garter stitch *, work from *-* over all stitches. Cast off by knitting when sleeve measures 43-41-41-39-37-36 cm from where it was divided from body.
Work the other sleeve the same way.

När man börjar sticka A. 1a står det att man börjar sticka 5 maskor, vilket syns på diagrammet, min fråga, är den ljusa punkten ett omslag ? nästa ljusa punkt syns på varv 5. TACK SÅ MYCKET PÅ FÖRHAND
