ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams. The sleeve is not long enough to fill the whole armhole – see diagram below - there will be an opening of approx 9-9-11-13-15-17 cm under sleeve. Fold sleeve double and insert a marker in the middle at the top. Beg by placing marker on sleeve towards shoulder seam and sew sleeve to armhole from here and down towards bottom of armhole as far as the sleeve will reach. Repeat the other side. Sew on buttons.

I am confused about the sleeve. When piece measures 4 inches it says "cast in K sets from WS". Does that mean to bind of stitches in K? Thank you

Dear Mrs Jtempest, it looks like there is a typo there, when sleve measures 4", you are supposed to cast off all sts by knitting them from WS. Happy knitting!
