Finishing

Pin the pieces to measurements, mist on the wrong side and allow to dry.

Sew the shoulder seams.

The front and back neckline edge is knitted in two stages.

Starting from the midpoint of the back neckline, pick up sts from the left side first. Using the Linen yarn, pick up 24 sts from the RS per each 10 cm. Cast on 1 st at the beginning of row for seaming. Make sure the stitch count is divisible by 4 + 3 sts. Begin ribbing on the WS, starting from the hem: p3, *k2, p2*, repeat *-*. Work ribbing for 2 cm and bind off in pattern.

Place markers for buttons on the piece. The topmost button will be at the starting point of the neckline decreases, with the rest below it at approx. 8 cm intervals.

Work the right border in the same manner. When the border measures 1 cm, work buttonholes at the spots you marked. Buttonhole: work 2 sts together, yarn over.

Attach the sleeves following the red markings on the pattern.

Sew the sleeve seams and side seams.

Attach the buttons.
