Cast off by knitting on next row from right side, let the yarn end be approx. 30-50 cm before cutting it and pulling it through last stitch. Use yarn to sew together the sides on neck edge, sew in outer loops of edge stitches to avoid a chunky seam. Then sew the other shoulder the same way as the first.

SLEEVE:

Repeat increase every 3-3-4-4-6½-9 cm 8-8-7-6-4-3 times in total = 62-64-64-66-66-68 stitches on needle. When stripes have been worked, continue with fog. Work until piece measures 47-47-46-45-44-43 cm from shoulder. On next row from right side decrease stitches as follows: Knit 1-0-2-1-3-2, knit stitches together 2 by 2 until 1-0-2-1-3-2 stitches remain and knit these = 32-32-34-34-36-36 stitches on needle. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Switch to needle size 6 mm and work rib from right side as follows: Knit 1, * purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* and finish with knit 1. Work knit over knit and purl over purl until rib measures 5 cm. Loosely cast off with knit from right side.

Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew seam under sleeve in outer loop of edge stitch, begin at the bottom of rib and sew until markers inserted 1½-3-3½-4-5-5 cm from shoulder. From markers sew each side of sleeve to the sides of front/back piece where stitches were cast off for armhole. Then sew side of front piece to side of back piece from under sleeve and down to rib. Repeat in the other side.

Wow ! Zo mooi ! Heel erg trendy met die ballonmouwen en strepen. Ik vind dat er dit seizoen zoveel moderne patronen bij zitten. Helemaal mee met de mode. Proficiat Drops team! Ik ga dit model wel met Drops Sky maken, ik vind Melody te pluizig. Hoop dat het even mooi wordt.
