NOTES

The Jumper is worked in one piece from the bottom up to the arm­holes, turn­ing at the end of ev­ery round. It is di­vided into front and back at the arm­holes and worked in rows back and forth from this point. Sleeves are worked in the round from the top down, turn­ing at the end of ev­ery round.

The pat­tern for the colourwork sec­tion is shown on the Chart on the page op­po­site. Stitches are in­creased be­fore the colourwork to al­low for a tighter tension over this sec­tion. The mea­sure­ment given for the bust is taken us­ing the tension and stitch count of the colourwork sec­tion.

WORK CHART

On the Chart, each square rep­re­sents 1 tre­ble stitch, ex­cept for the cen­tral stitch of each di­a­mond marked with P for puff stitch (see abbreviations). All RS rows are read from right to left and WS rows from left to right. Change colour in the last yrh of the pre­vi­ous st, car­ry­ing the un­used colour across the back of the work. Twist the ends of the yarn to­gether to avoid a hole form­ing at the colour change. Re­peat the 8 sts in the Chart 22 (24: 26: 28) times to com­plete the round.

For the first 11 (11: 10: 9) rows of the Chart, con­tinue work­ing in the round, turn­ing at the end of each round.

DIVIDE FOR ARM­HOLES

On the next row, work 11 (12: 13: 14) re­peats of the Chart then turn to work back and forth in rows. At the same time, in­crease 1 st at each end of the row by work­ing 2 tr into the same stitch. Work these sts in Rock. These 2 ex­tra sts are not in­cluded on the Chart; they are added as a seam al­lowance. [90 (98: 106: 114) sts] For the Back, con­tinue work­ing back and forth in rows, fol­low­ing the colour changes on the Chart, un­til you have worked Row 27 on the Chart. Fas­ten off.

Re­join the yarn in the next un­worked st of the Front, mak­ing sure that you are work­ing from the same side as the first di­vided row on the Back, in­crease at each end of the first row as be­fore and con­tinue work­ing in rows fol­low­ing the Chart to match the Back. Fas­ten off.
