Work as for back piece until the piece measures 13-14-13-14-13-14 cm / 5″-5½”-5″-5½”-5″-5½” from where you cast on new stitches for the sleeve (the piece has a total length of 54-56-56-58-58-60 cm / 21 1/4″-22″22″-22 3/4″-22 3/4″-23½”). Place the middle 16-16-18-18-20-20 stitches on a thread for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately (= 48-50-50-51-54-59 stitches on the shoulder).
Continue by binding off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: bind off 3 stitches a total of 1 time and 2 stitches a total of 3 times = 39-41-41-42-45-50 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures a total of 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm / 24 3/8”-25¼”-26”-26¾”-27½”-28 3/8”. Bind off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles, you can change to a short circular needle as the number of stitches increases. Cast on 40-40-44-44-48-48 stitches with double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and Alaska. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm / 1”. Change to double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round. Work as follows: 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches in seed stitch, A.1 over the next 24 stitches, 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches in seed stitch. Continue pattern in this way. When the piece measures 6-6-8-6-6-8 cm / 2½”-2½”-3″-2½”-2½”-3″ increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 3-2½-2½-2½-2½-2 cm / 1 1/8″-7/8″-7/8″-7/8″-7/8″-3/4″ a total of 13-15-14-16-15-16 times = 66-70-72-76-78-80 stitches.
