ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside bind off edges. Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st.

SHAWL COLLAR:

Pick up approx. 50 to 60 sts up to shoulder, then approx. 20 sts along the neck, and 50 to 60 sts down along left front piece until marker = 120 to 140 sts.
K 1 row from WS - AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts along left front piece to 45-47-49-51-53-55, around the neck to 22, along right front piece to 45-47-49-51-53-55 = 112-116-120-124-128-132 sts. Then work rib on next row from RS as follows: 1 st in garter st, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 2 and 1 st in garter st. Continue like this until collar measures approx. 5 cm / 2''.
Now inc 1 st in each of the middle 12-12-12-14-14-14 P-sections seen from RS (= back of neck) = 124-128-132-138-142-146 sts.
Continue rib until collar measures approx. 10 cm / 4'', loosely bind off all sts with K over K and P over P.
Fasten collar with stitches at the bottom in each side towards band from WS (so that the seam is not visible from RS) – sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
