When the piece measures 51-51-50-49-47 cm (this is the top of the sleeves) place a marker – measure the work from here. Then loosely cast on at each side every other row (that is, at the end of every row): 10 sts 2 times and then 12-13-14-15-16 sts 1 time = 100-104-108-112-116 sts. When the piece measures 12-13-15-17-20 cm (from the marker) knit the next row as follows (right side row): 49-51-53-55-57 sts (= back), bind off 5 sts for the neck, 46-48-50-52-54 sts (= front). Knit the front and back separately.
Front: = 46-48-50-52-54 sts. Bind off at neck edge every other row: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 3 times = 39-41-43-45-47 sts. When the neck opening measures 10-12-12-14-14 cm (lay piece flat and measure from where you bound off 5 sts).
Then loosely cast on at neck edge every other row: 1 st 3 times, 2 sts 2 times and then 5 sts 1 time = 51-53-55-57-59 sts. After all sts are cast on the neck opening measures 16-18-18-20-20 cm. Put sts on a st holder.

Place a new marker – measure the work from here. Knit approx. 2-4-3-3-5 cm (match the length of first sleeve after last inc up to the marker) then dec 1 st at each side every 7-5.5-5.5-4.5-4 cm a total of 6-7-7-8-8 times = 24-24-26-26-28 sts.
