Sew 2 seams on a sewing machine around the marking thread, 1st seam = ½ st from the MT, 2nd seam = ½ st from the 1st seam. Cut for armholes. Sew the shoulder seams = 14-16 cm. Pick up approx 78-84 sts round the neck on double pointed needles size 3 mm with no 347 and K 5 rounds, P 1 round (folding edge), and K 5 rounds. Cast off and fold edge double towards WS and fasten. Set in sleeves as follows: sew the last row in stocking st on sleeves to row after machine seam on armhole. Turn jumper inside out and fasten piece in reverse stocking st on sleeve to body piece.
