EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 88 stitches), and divide by number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 12) = 7.3. In this example, decrease by knitting together approx. each 6th and 7th stitch.
When increasing, make 1 yarn over after approx. each 7th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
A total of 8 stitches increased on the round.
Increase as follows on the sleeves: Work as far as the first marker thread, make 1 yarn over after the thread, knit as far as the next marker thread and make 1 yarn over before the thread (= 1 stitches increased on each side of the sleeve). Repeat on the other sleeve (= 4 stitches increased on round).
Increase as follows on front and back pieces: Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.1 by making 1 yarn over (= 4 stitches increased on round).
Knit all yarn overs twisted on the next round to avoid holes, then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
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.

PONCHO-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:

YOKE:
Change to short circular needle size 6 mm and work pattern as follows: Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round (= transition between left sleeve and back piece), knit 3-4-5-5-6-7, make 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 20 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 3-4-5-5-6-7 and insert 1 marker thread here (= transition between back piece and right sleeve), 1 yarn over, knit 12, 1 yarn over, insert a marker thread here (= transition between right sleeve and front piece), knit 3-4-5-5-6-7, 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 20 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 3-4-5-5-6-7 , insert 1 marker thread here (= transition between front piece and left sleeve), 1 yarn over, knit 12, make 1 yarn over.

Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 27-29-31-33-35-37 times = 292-312-332-348-368-388 stitches. Now continue with pattern as before at the same time as you continue to increase on each side of A.1 on the front and back pieces (= 4 stitches increased on round) 5 more times = 312-332-352-368-388-408 stitches. The piece measures approx. 34-36-38-40-42-44 cm. The next round is worked as follows: Work the first 90-96-102-106-112-118 stitches (= back piece), place the next 66-70-74-78-82-86 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 90-96-102-106-112-118 stitches (= front piece), place the next 66-70-74-78-82-86 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve).

Knit 1 round where you increase 48-52-56-60-64-68 stitches evenly spaced – remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 292-308-328-340-360-376 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) for 5 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The piece measures approx. 61-63-65-67-69-71 cm from the shoulder down.
