EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 114 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased/increases to be done (e.g. 20) = 5.7. In this example decrease by working approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together. When increasing make 1 yarn over (in this example) after approx. every 6th stitch. On next round/row work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

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

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armhole, then work front and back piece back and forth separately. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles and sewn into armholes when finished.

BODY:
Cast on 114-126-138-144-162-180 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm with 2 strands Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib as follows: * Knit 3, A.1 (= 3 stitches) *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Work rib like this for 6 cm. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm, knit 1 round while decreasing 20-20-24-22-24-30 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 94-106-114-122-138-150 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of round and 1 marker thread after the next 47-53-57-61-69-75 stitches, there are now 47-53-57-61-69-75 stitches until the beginning of round. Marker threads mark the sides, move the marker threads upwards when working. Work in stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm, divide the piece at the markers and finish each part separately.

FRONT PIECE:
= 47-53-57-61-69-75 stitches. Begin in the side and work back and forth in stocking stitch. When piece measures 47-49-51-53-55-57 cm, work next row from wrong side as follows: Work 38-41-44-46-51-54 stitches as before, and slip the last 29-29-31-31-33-33 stitches worked on 1 stitch holder for neck, work the remaining 9-12-13-15-18-21 stitches as before.
Work 1 row from right side over the first 9-12-13-15-18-21 stitches as before, turn, tighten yarn and work 1 row from wrong side. Cut the yarn. Slip stitches on 1 stitch holder.
Work 1 row from right side over the last 9-12-13-15-18-21 stitches on needle as before, turn, tighten yarn and work 1 row from wrong side. Cut the yarn.
Slip all stitches on to circular needle size 8 mm = 47-53-57-61-69-75 stitches. Work 1 row in stocking stitch while increasing 4-4-0-2-0-0 stitches evenly - remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 51-57-57-63-69-75 stitches.
Switch to circular needle size 7 mm. Work rib as follows from right side: * A.1 (= 3 stitches), 3 stitches in stocking stitch *, work from *-* until 3 stitches remain, finish with A.1 (= 3 stitches). Continue with rib for 7 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl - make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge (cast of on a larger needle size if needed). Piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm.

BACK PIECE:
Work as front piece.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 24-24-24-30-30-30 stitches on double pointed needles size 7 mm with 2 strands Air. * Knit 3, A.1 (= 3 stitches) *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Work rib like this for 6 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing 0-2-2-0-0-0 stitches evenly = 24-26-26-30-30-30 stitches. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round and move the marker thread upwards when working. Use marker thread later when increasing mid under sleeve. Switch to double pointed needles size 8 mm. Then work in stocking stitch. When piece measures 9 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 6½-6½-5½-6-5-4 cm 7-7-8-7-8-9 times in total = 38-40-42-44-46-48 stitches. Continue until piece measures 52-50-50-48-46-44 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Cast off but make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge (switch to a larger needle size if needed). Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams, leave approx. 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm for neck. Sew in sleeves.
