EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.2/A.3).

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 99 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 11) = 9. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 9th stitch. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

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

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 99-102-105-108-114-123 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Puna. Knit 1 round. Then work rib = knit 1/purl 2 until piece measures 3 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing 11-13-20-22-21-22 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 110-115-125-130-135-145 stitches. Insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Now work pattern A.1 (= 5 stitches) 22-23-25-26-27-29 repetitions on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue pattern in the round like this. When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, there are 286-299-325-338-351-377 stitches on the round. Now work in the different sizes as follows:

SIZE S, M, L:
Work pattern A.2 over each repetition of A.1. When it has been worked up to arrow for your size, there are 286-322-350 stitches on round.

Size XL:
Work * A.2, A.3 *, work from *-* the entire round 13 times in total. When it has been worked up to arrow for your size, there are 377 stitches on round.

Size XXL and XXXL:
Work pattern A.3 over each repetition of A.1. When it has been worked up to arrow for your size, there are 405-435 stitches on round.

All sizes:
Continue in the round with stocking stitch until piece measures 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from marker thread, AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 stitch on last round worked in XL, XXL and XXXL = 286-322-350-376-404-434 stitches.
Work last round on yoke as follows: Work 42-46-50-55-61-66 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 84-93-101-110-122-132 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the remaining 42-47-51-55-61-66 stitches as before (= half back piece). Now finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
There are now 184-202-218-240-264-288 stitches for body. Insert a marker thread in each side of piece, in the middle of the new stitches cast-on in the side under the sleeves (= 4-4-4-5-5-6 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 4 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread in each side - read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased on round). Increase like this approx. every 5 cm 4 times in total = 200-218-234-256-280-304 stitches. When piece measures 24 cm, increase 31-34-36-38-41-47 stitches evenly = 231-252-270-294-321-351 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work rib (knit 1/purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Jumper measures approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 59-68-74-78-80-85 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece back on a short circular needle size 4 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 67-76-82-88-90-97 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches under sleeve (= 4-4-4-5-5-6 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 4-2½-2-2-1½-1½ cm 9-13-15-17-17-19 times in total = 49-50-52-54-56-59 stitches. When sleeve measures 40-39-37-36-34-32 cm, increase 5-7-8-9-9-9 stitches evenly = 54-57-60-63-65-68 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib (knit 1/purl 2) for 3 cm. Entire sleeve measures approx. 43-42-40-39-37-35 cm from division. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve the same way.
