Work ribbed cuff for second sleeve in the same way.

Finishing

Place work inside out onto a flat surface acc to measurements, dampen and leave to dry.

Join sleeves to cable pattern of front- and back, using backstitches (pay attention to the red arrows in chart). The sleeve is sewn to front and back part at a distance of 1 st from the armhole edge, so 1 whole knit st remains visible on the cable pattern. Close sleeve seams.

Neckline border: place the 58(58)62(62) held sts of back part onto the short circ. ndl, PUK 12(12)12(12) sts along sleeve edge, place the 58(58)62(62) held sts of front part back onto ndl and PUK 12(12)12(12) sts along edge of second sleeve = 140(140)148(148) sts.

Continue working as set, until neckline border measures 10 cm / 4”, then BO all rib pattern sts in pattern and BO the cable pattern sts knitwise.
