Then ch until the middle of next side – ch 1 over every dc/ch until the middle dc, work 1 dc in the middle dc and work until the third corner as before, work until the middle of next side, then ch 1 over every dc/ch until the fourth corner, work 2 dc, ch 4, 2 dc in the corner and work until beg of round as before. On next round work as before, in ch-spaces for armholes work 1 dc in every ch.

Cut the thread, now work back and forth between first and second corner. Work from the first corner as follows: 2 dc in ch-space in the corner, 1 dc in every dc/ch until second corner, 2 dc in ch-space in the corner. Turn and work back, continue pattern as on 5th and 6th round.

Then work 1 dc in every dc. When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', inc 1 dc in each side, repeat inc every 6-5-5-4-4-3½ cm / 2 3/8"-2"-2"-1½"-1½"-1 1/4" 6-8-8-9-10-11 more times = 50-54-56-58-62-64 dc. Work until piece measures 49 cm / 19 1/4'' (same in all sizes because of wider shoulders on body in the larger sizes). Now dec at beg and end of every row for sleeve cap – SEE DECREASE TIP: 3 dc 1 time, 2 dc 2 times and 3 dc 1 time = 30-34-36-38-42-44 dc remain.
