When piece measures 17-18-20 (22-25) cm / 6 3/4"-7"-8" (8 3/4"-9 3/4"), put piece aside finish after 1 row with dc (= WS). Continue with sleeves.

Continue with PATTERN - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm / 1'', inc 1 st in each side by working 2 sts in second and next to last st. Repeat inc every 2-2-2 (2-3) rows 5-7-8 (9-10) more times (= 6-8-9 (10-11) inc in total) = 48-52-56 (60-64) sts.
