Insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) after 15-16-17-18 sts, and a further 5 MT with 30-32-34-36 sts between each (= 6 MT). Continue in stockinette st. Remember the knitting gauge! When piece measures 10-12-13-14 cm [4”-4¾”-5 1/8”-5½”] dec 1 st on both sides of each MT (= 12 dec) – see Decreasing tip – on every 9-9-10-11 cm [3½”-3½”-4”-4 3/8”] a total of 5 times = 120-132-144-156 sts. At the same time when piece measures 19-21-25-29 cm [7½”-8¼”-9¾”-11 3/8”] divide the piece to make openings for armholes as follows:
Slip sts from beg of round to MT-1 on a stitch holder, leave sts between MT-1 and MT-3 on needle and slip remaining sts on the stitch holder. Work remaining sts on needle back and forth in stockinette st with 1 garter st each side. Remember to continue dec! When piece measures 18-19-20-21 cm [7”-7½”-8”-8 1/4”] from dividing the piece slip sts from needle on a new stitch holder. Slip sts from the first stitch holder back on needle and work stockinette st back and forth on needle with 1 garter st each side. Remember to continue dec! When piece measures 18-19-20-21 cm [7”-7½”-8”-8 1/4”] from dividing the piece slip all sts back on the same needle. Continue in stockinette st in the round at the same time continue dec. When piece measures 48-50-55-60 cm [19”-19 ¾”-21 5/8”-23 5/8”] (all dec are now complete = 120-132-144-156 sts on round) dec 4 sts evenly = 116-128-140-152 sts. Continue until piece measures 61-65-71-77 cm [24”-25½”-28”-30 3/8”] and dec 18-20-20-22 sts evenly on next round = 98-108-120-130 sts. K 1 round. On next round beg dec 12-14-16-18 sts evenly on round on every 3 cm [1 1/8”] a total of 4 times = 50-52-56-58 sts. Insert 1 MT and now measure piece from here.
