Always use a needle size that will result in the correct
gauge after blocking.

Notions: 2 stitch markers, 2 stitch holders or scrap yarn

Notes: The jumper is knit flat in pieces before picking up
stitches for the neckband which is worked in the round.
Maintain 1 selvedge stitch at each edge of garment piece
by slipping the first stitch of every row purlwise with yarn in back. Not including the selvedge stitches, the first and
the last stitch of every row are knit on the RS and purled
on the WS to make a neat seaming line at each edge. The
pink cap on the sleeve starts where the pink chevron stripe
across the front starts. Where only one number is given
this applies to all sizes.
