INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):

Purl 1 row with 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side. Switch to fog and work STRIPES - see explanation above, and in stocking stitch with 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side.

Increase like this every 3½-3½-3-2½-2½-2 cm 9-9-11-11-12-13 times in total = 52-54-58-60-64-68 stitches. When piece measures 40-39-38-37-35-34 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulder), cast off - to avoid a tight cast-off edge, cast off with ½ needle size larger. Work another sleeve the same way.
