14 sts x 19 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See chart. The pattern is seen from the right side.

Front: Read the entire section before knitting:
The garment is knit from side to side. The cast-on edge is the side below the armhole.
Cast on 11-13-15-16-18 sts. Knit stockinette st, keeping 3 sts in garter st at armhole edge.
Cast on new sts at bottom edge (this shapes the side) and inc sts at armhole:
Cast on 8 sts at lower edge every other row 4 times. After all new sts have been cast on, K the 3 sts at lower edge in garter st.
At the same time, Inc sts at armhole edge by K 2 sts in the first st inside the 3 garter st edge sts every other row 4-5-6-8-9 times – knit the increased sts in stockinette st.
Then cast on 20 new sts along armhole = 67-70-73-76-79 sts. Measure the work from here.
Knit 4 rows with garter st over the top 23 sts at armhole edge, and then knit stockinette st, keeping 3 sts in garter st only at lower edge.
When the piece measures 5-6-7-8-9 cm bind off for the neck every other row: 4-5-6-7-8 sts 1 time,
2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times = 57-59-61-63-65 sts.
When the piece measures 10-11-12-13-14 cm (adjust so that the next row is a wrong side row) knit Pattern 1 over all sts. Then continue with stockinette st and 3 sts in garter st at bottom edge again.
When the piece measures approx. 22-23-24-25-26 cm (adjust so that Pattern 1 is centered on neckband) cast on new sts for other side of neck every other row: 1 st 2 times, 2 sts 2 times and 4-5-6-7-8 sts 1 time = 67-70-73-76-79 sts.
When the piece measures 30-32-34-36-38 cm (adjust so that there are the same number of rows of stockinette st at each side of Pattern 1 before armhole) knit 4 rows with garter st over the 23 top sts at armhole edge, then bind off the top 20 sts. Then dec 1 st inside of the 3 sts in garter st at armhole edge every other row 4-5-6-8-9 times by K 2 tog.
When the piece measures 32-35-38-42-45 cm bind off 8 sts from bottom edge every other row 4 times and then the remaining 11-13-15-16-18 sts. The piece measures approx. 40-44-48-53-58 cm wide.

When the piece measures 27-28-29-30-31 cm cast on 2 sts for other side of neck= 67-70-73-76-79 sts. Continue as on front.
