EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 6) = 15.3. 
In this example decrease by knitting approx. every 14th and 15th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of A.4 as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before A.4 and knit 2 together, knit A.4, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.4 by making 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 170 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 34) = 5. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 5th stitch. On next row (wrong side) work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch in each side of 2 knit stitches in every transition between front/back piece and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitch in stocking stitch on sleeves and work pattern on front and back piece. 

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 92-96-104-108-116-120 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Paris. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 2½ cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 6-10-10-14-14-18 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly) = 86-86-94-94-102-102 stitches. Knit 1 round.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Work PATTERN - read explanation above, as follows (round begins mid back): * A.1 over the first/next 10 stitches, A.2 – choose diagram for your size, over the next 5-5-7-7-9-9 stitches, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= half back piece/front piece), knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit 8, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= sleeve), knit 1, make 1 yarn over, A.3 – choose diagram for your size, over the next 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches, A.1 over the next 10 stitches (= half front piece/back piece) *, work from *-* 1 more time on round.
8 stitches have been increased for RAGLAN - read explanation above. Continue pattern in the round like this and increase every other round 18-22-23-26-28-30 times in total = 230-262-278-302-326-342 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. When diagrams have been worked vertically, continue pattern the same way. I.e. work according to A.2/A.3 towards raglan line on front piece and back piece, and there is now from for 2 more repetition of A.1 between A.2 and A.3 on front pieces and back piece. Continue sleeves in stocking stitch. When all increases for raglan are done, piece measures approx. 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from cast-on edge and down mid front. Work next row from wrong side as follows:
NOTE: Work some of the stitches (= 1-1-0-1-1-3 stitches) on sleeves on to needle for body, so that the transition between body and sleeves are now longer at the marker threads.
Work the first 35-39-41-45-49-53 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 44-52-56-60-64-64 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 71-79-83-91-99-107 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 44-52-56-60-64-64 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the remaining 36-40-42-46-50-54 stitches (= half back piece). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 162-178-190-206-226-246 stitches. Work A.4 (= 8 stitches) over the middle 8 stitches under sleeves, and work as many repetitions lace pattern that will fit out towards each side (pattern should fit pattern on yoke!), work the remaining stitches in stocking stitch.
When piece measures 4 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of A.4 in each side - READ INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every 6 cm 2 times in total in all sizes = 170-186-198-214-234-254 stitches. Continue until piece measures 21 cm (adjust to finish after a lace pattern vertically + some rounds in stocking stitch). Now increase 34-38-42-46-46-50 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 204-224-240-260-280-304 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size when casting off. Jumper measures approx. 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 44-52-56-60-64-64 stitches from stitch holder in one side back on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 5 mm. Pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches under sleeve = 54-62-68-72-78-80 stitches. Continue in the round with stocking stitch and work A.4 over the middle 8 stitches under sleeve. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 2 stitches under sleeves - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease in the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Decrease like this every 3 cm 5 times and every 4 cm 4 times (= 9 decreases in total).
Size M: Decrease like this every 2 cm 6 times and every 3 cm 6 times (= 12 decreases in total).
Size L: Decrease like this every 2 cm 14 times in total.
Size XL: Decrease like this every cm 8 times and every 2 cm 8 times (= 16 decreases in total).
Size XXL: Decrease like this every cm 9 times and every 2 cm 9 times (= 18 times in total).
Size XXXL: Decrease like this every cm 10 times and every 2 cm 8 times (= 18 decreases in total).
When all decreases on sleeve are done there are 36-38-40-40-42-44 stitches on round. Continue until sleeve measures 38-37-35-34-32-30 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke).
Now increase 8-6-8-8-10-8 stitches evenly – remember INCREASE TIP-2 = 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size when casting off. Sleeve measures approx. 42-41-39-38-36-34 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.
