When piece measures 49-47-47-45-44-43 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) cast off for sleeve cap in each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-1-1-1-1 time and 1 st 2-6-5-6-7-8 times. Then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 56 cm, then cast off 3 sts 1 time in each side. Cast off the remaining sts, piece measures approx. 56-57-56-56-57-57 cm. Knit another sleeve the same way.
