Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 8.2. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch; on the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round work 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 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, from mid back and top down. When you have worked as far as the armholes, the piece is divided - the body is continued in the round with circular needle and the sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 82-84-88-92-96-102 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Big Merino. Knit 1 round. On the next round work rib as follows: * Knit 1 /purl 1 *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue this rib for 2-3-2-3-2-3 cm.
Change to circular needle size 5 mm. Then work as follows:
Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. On the last round of the ridges increase 10-13-14-18-22-23 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 92-97-102-110-118-125 stitches.
Work rib as follows: * Knit 1 /purl 1 *, work from *-* to end of round. Work this rib for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm.
On the next round work A.1 over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round of A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 132-142-152-168-180-190 stitches. 
Work rib as before for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm, then work A.1, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 172-187-202-226-242-255 stitches. NOTE! Finish the round in A.1 with a yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 0-1-0-0-0-1 stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work rib as before for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm, then work A.1, on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 212-232-252-284-304-320 stitches. The piece measures approx. 21-22-24-25-27-28 cm from the cast-on edge.

The next round is worked as follows: Knit the first 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 62-68-74-82-90-98 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast on under the sleeve. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 3 cm from the division, increase 2 stitches on each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 8-6½-5-4½-4½-4½ cm a total of 5-6-7-8-8-8 times = 156-172-192-212-232-252 stitches. When the piece measures 37-38-38-39-39-40 cm, knit 1 round where you increase 24-20-20-18-22-24 stitches evenly on round = 180-192-212-230-254-276 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work rib (knit 1 /purl 1) for 5 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, The piece measures approx. 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches from the one thread on short circular needle size 5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-54-60-68-72-74 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the cast on stitches under the sleeve = beginning of round. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the sleeve measures 4 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4½-3½-3-2-2-2 cm a total of 8-9-11-14-15-15 times = 34-36-38-40-42-44 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 37-37½-36-35½-34-33½ cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 8 stitches evenly on round = 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 1). When the rib measures 5 cm (or to desired length) cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 43-42½-42-40½-39-37 cm from the division.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.
