Insert a marker in edge st in each side when piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-38 cm (= markers for assembly). When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-61 cm, cast off and dec for armholes at the beg of row in each side as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-3-5-7 times and dec 1 st 1-2-2-4-4-5 times = 60-62-64-66-68-68 sts. When piece measures 69-72-75-78-81-83 cm, cast off the middle 18-20-22-24-26-26 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Dec 1 st on next row from neck = 20 sts remain in all sizes. Cast off when piece measures 71-74-77-80-83-85 cm.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 91-97-103-109-115-121 sts (incl 1 edge st in the side) on circular needle size 5 mm with Lin. Work in stocking st. When piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-38 cm, cast off the first 57-59-62-63-64-65 sts from RS = 34-38-41-46-51-56 sts. Continue in stocking st. When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-61 cm, cast off and dec for armhole in the side as on back piece = 30-31-32-33-34-34 sts. When piece measures 71-74-77-80-83-85 cm, cast off the first 20 sts from RS for shoulder in all sizes = 10-11-12-13-14-14 sts remain for collar.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 5 mm with Lin. Work in stocking st. When piece measures 8 cm, inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 4-3½-3-2½-2½-2 cm a total of 10-12-13-15-15-17 times = 56-62-66-72-74-80 sts. When piece measures 50-50-50-49-47-46 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), cast off for sleeve cap at beg of row in each side as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-2-3-3-3-3 times, 1 st 3-4-2-5-7-9 times. Then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 57-58-58-59-59-60 cm, then cast off 3 sts 1 time in each side. Cast off. Now piece measures approx. 58-59-59-60-60-61 cm. Knit another sleeve.

Adjust so that cast off edge on each front piece is sewn up to marker on back piece, then continue side seam as before inside 1 edge st up to armhole) - see chart.
