EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagrams for your size (applies to A.1 and A.2).

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.2 (= 8 stitches increased on round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn overs to leave holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

ROW OF HOLES:
The increases to raglan on the front and back pieces are finished before the increases on the sleeves. So that the row of holes made by the increases inside A.2 continue, work a lace pattern as far as the body (A.3/A.4) inside A.2 as follows:
Work A.3 when 2 stitches remain before A.2 and sleeve on the back piece and when 2 stitches remain before the last repeat of A.2 on the front piece.
Work A.4 after the first repeat of A.2 on the front piece and after the sleeve and A.2 on the back piece.

INCREASE TIP-1 (for body):
Increase 1 stitch inside A.2 on back and front piece (= 4 stitches increased on round). On the next round knit the yarn overs to leave holes. Each time you increase, the number of stocking stitches is increased between the 2 repeats of A.2 on the back and front pieces.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 206 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 30) = 6.9. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 7th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP-1 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 3 stitches left 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. Repeat on other side (= 4 stitches decreased on round).

DECREASE TIP-2 (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left 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.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

NECK:
Cast on 138-138-146-146-154-154 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Knit 1 round then work rib as follows: Knit 1, A.1 (choose diagram for your size) over the first 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, (purl 2 /knit 2) over the next 8 stitches, purl 2, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches, knit 1, (purl 2 /knit 2) over the next 8 stitches, purl 2, knit 1, A.1 over the next 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches. Continue like this in the round until A.1 has been completed in height = 134-134-142-142-150-150 stitches.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work pattern as follows: Knit 1 (= mid-stitch on back piece), 1 yarn over, A.2 (choose diagram for your size) over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches (= half back piece), 1 yarn over, knit 12, 1 yarn over (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= mid-stitch on front piece), 1 yarn over, A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches (= front piece), 1 yarn over, knit 12 , 1 yarn over (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, 1 yarn over, (= half back piece). You have now increased 8 stitches to RAGLAN – read description above. Continue this pattern in the round and increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 20-24-26-30-35-38 times = 294-326-350-382-430-454 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue with increases to raglan on the sleeves 4-4-5-3-0-1 more times (= a total 24-28-31-33-35-39 increases on sleeves). On the front and back pieces work patterns A.3 and A.4 so that you continue the ROW OF HOLES – read description above, every 2nd round as before without increasing. The other stitches are worked in pattern as before. When all increases are finished there are 310-342-370-394-430-458 stitches on the round.
The piece measures approx. 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge and down mid back.
The next round is worked as follows: Work the first 48-52-56-60-67-70 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 95-103-111-119-133-139 stitches (= front piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 47-51-55-59-66-69 stitches on round (= half back piece). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 206-222-242-258-290-306 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches under each sleeve (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Allow the threads to follow your work onwards. Continue the pattern in the round as before; i.e. work as follows: Stocking stitch as far as A.2, 1 yarn over, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, stocking stitch over the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches and decrease at the same time 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread in the side – read DECREASE TIP-1, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, 1 yarn over, stocking stitch as far as the next repeat of A.2, 1 yarn over, work A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, stocking stitch over the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches and decrease at the same time 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - remember DECREASE TIP-1, A.2 over the next 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches, 1 yarn over and stocking stitch over the remaining stitches on the round. You have now increased 1 stitch on the inside of A.2 on the front and back pieces – read INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches increased) and decreased 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads in the sides (= 4 stitches decreased); i.e. the number of stitches remains the same. Continue to increase and decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 31-31-34-34-37-38 times until the whole pattern has disappeared into the sides. As the stitches in the pattern decrease work as many stitches in the pattern as there is room for; i.e. when there is not room to work the decrease and yarn over in the lace pattern in A.2 work stocking stitch over these stitches.
When the whole pattern has gone, the piece measures approx. 22-22-24-24-26-27 cm from the division. Now work stocking stitch in the round until the piece measures 28 cm from the division (= approx. 6-6-4-4-2-1 cm stocking stitch after the pattern in the sides). Now increase 30-34-38-38-42-46 stitches evenly spaced = 236-256-280-296-332-352 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure the cast-off edge is not tight; you can use a size larger needle when casting off if necessary. The jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 60-68-74-78-82-90 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on under the sleeve = 68-76-84-88-94-104 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of the marker thread). Work stocking stitch in the round. When the sleeve measures 4-4-4-3-3-2 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 0-4-2-1½-1-1 cm a total of 1-4-7-7-9-12 times (only 1 decrease in size S) = 66-68-70-74-76-80 stitches. When the sleeve measures 29-28-26-25-23-22 cm, increase 6-8-6-6-8-8 stitches evenly spaced = 72-76-76-80-84-88 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure the cast-off edge is not tight; you can use a size larger needle when casting off if necessary. The sleeve measures approx. 32-31-29-28-26-25 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= purl 2 together
= Knot: Knit 1 stitch in both front and back of same stitch until you have increased from 1 to 5 stitches. You now have 5 stitches on right needle. Pass the 2nd stitch (next outermost stitch on right needle) over the outermost stitch, pass the 3rd stitch over the outermost stitch, pass the 4th stitch over the outermost stitch and finally the 5th stitch over the outermost stitch (= 1 knot).
= this square has no stitch; go straight to next symbol in diagram
