Gauge: 10 sts x 14 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Decreasing tips:
Before 1st marker: K 2 tog.
After 2nd marker: Slip 1 st as if to knit, K 1, psso.

Seed Stitch:
Row 1: * K1, P1 *, repeat from *_*.
Row 2: P over K, K over P
Repeat Row 2.

Loosely cast on 62 (70) sts and P 1 row (wrong side), then knit seed st, keeping 2 sts at each edge in garter st. When the piece measures 10 (12) cm, lay piece aside and knit back.

Cast on and knit the same as the front.

Put sts for front and back on the same needles = 124 (140) sts; join and place a marker at the join. K 1 row, then P 1 row, putting 5 more markers in the piece as follows: 1 marker (= side), 26 (30) sts, 1 marker, 10 (10) sts (= center front), 1 marker, 26 (30) sts, 1 marker (= side), 26 (30) sts, 1 marker, 10 (10) sts (= center back), 1 marker, 26 (30) sts.
Then knit stockinette st, decreasing at the 2 markers for front and back (do not dec in the center 10 sts). Dec 1 st every 4 rows - see decreasing tips above – a total of 8 (8) times, then every other row: 2 (2) times.
When the piece measures 21 (23) cm dec at each side for shoulder. Dec 1 st each side of side markers every 3 cm a total of 5 times for both sizes.
After all shaping is complete, 64 (80) sts remain on needles.
Neckband: P 1 row, then K and bind off all sts loosely on the next row.
