Body

The body is knitted in the round up to the armholes. Using the smaller circular needle (80 cm) and the Off White yarn, cast on 184(198)212(228)240(260) sts and work ribbing in the round for 5 cm.

Break the yarn and leave the 83(90)98(105)112(121) front and back sts on hold for the yoke.

When the piece measures 12(13)11(12)12(10) cm, increase 1 st on both sides of the beginning of round: k1, increase 1 (knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop), work to last st, increase 1, k1. Repeat the increases every 3.5(3.5)3(3)3(3) cm 8(8)10(10)10(11) more times = 64(66)72(76)80(84) sts.

Work until the piece measures 43(44)44(45)45(46) cm. Next round: work to last 4 sts, bind off 4 sts and the first 4 sts of the next round = 56(58)64(68)72(76) sts. Break yarn.
