Work 1 row stockinette st with front band sts in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 12-14-14 (16-16) sts evenly (do not dec on front bands) = 107-119-131 (143-155) sts. Now work M.1 with 4 front band sts each side. After M.1 continue in stockinette st with front band sts in garter st as before. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 17-18-21 (24-26) cm / 6¾''-7''-8¼'' (9½''-10¼'') – adjust so that next row is from RS – work next rows as follows: 26-29-32 (35-38) sts (= front piece), bind off 6 sts for armhole, 43-49-55 (61-67) sts (= back piece), bind off 6 sts for armhole, 26-29-32 (35-38) sts (= front piece).

Repeat the inc on every 4-4-6 (6-6) round a total of 5-7-6 (8-10) times = 40-44-48 (52-56) sts. When piece measures 14-16-18 (22-26) cm / 5½''-6¼''-7'' (8¾''-10¼'') (inc are now complete) bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve = 34-38-42 (46-50) sts left on needle.

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from top down.
Cast on 34-34-40 (40-40) sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 with light pink. Work rib, K1/P1, for 4-4-5 (5-6) cm / 1½"-1½"-2" (2"-2 3/8").

After M.4 work 4 rounds stockinette st with light pink, AT THE SAME TIME on first round (after M.4) dec 2-0-4 (2-0) sts evenly = 28-30-32 (34-36) sts.
After the 4 rounds stockinette st keep the first 15-17-17 (19-19) sts on needle for heel, and slip the remaining 13-13-15 (15-17) sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work stockinette st back and forth on heel sts for 3-3.5-4 (4-4.5) cm / 1 1/8''-1¼''-1½'' (1½''-1¾'') – insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – SEE ABOVE!
After heel dec pick up 7-8-9 (9-10) new sts each side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 34-38-42 (42-46) sts. Continue in stockinette st in the round on all sts with light pink, AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec as follows: K2 tog into back of loop before the 13-13-15 (15-17) sts mid upper foot and K2 tog after the 13-13-15 (15-17) sts mid upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-6-6 (6-6) times = 26-26-30 (30-34) sts.
