Introduction: Jumper

The dress is knitted round on circular needles beg. from the bottom and work upwards. Cast on 171-190-209-228-247 sts loosely on circular needles size 5 mm [US 8] with Alaska. Knit according to M.1, continue with M.2 until the work measures approx. 45-50-50-55-55 cm [17 ¾”-19 ¾”-19 ¾”-21 5/8”-21 5/8”] – adjust so you finish at the arrow in the diagram.
