Using Off White, work stockinette st in the round. On the second round, increase 0(6)0(2)4(6) sts = 240(254)272(290)308(326) sts.

When the yoke measures 20(21)21(22)22(23) cm from the ribbing, separate the sleeves: 71(76)83(89)95(101) back sts + 49(51)53(56)59(62) sleeve sts + 71(76)83(89)95(101) front sts + 49(51)53(56)59(62) sleeve sts.
