Read the pattern to the Sleeve section ebfore you start.
*Knit 8 rows back and forth in stockinette. On the next row (from the right side) increase 12 s evenly. Knit the next row from the wrong side in garter stitch.*
Repeat from * to * 4 times in total.
Repeat the same paragraph 4 more times, but increase 6 stitches evenly on each row of increasement.
AT THE SAME TIME you´ll increase at the beginning and end of the row from the start to create the v-shape. You need to make the increasement below at the same time as the increasement above.
On every row from the right side increase 1 s after the 1st stitch and before the last stitch 3 times in total. Increase in the same way every second row from the right side 4 more times.
When you´re done increasing, you´ll have 192 s.
Knit 2 rounds before working back and forth again to make room for the sleeves. Cut the thread. Slip the next 48 s over to the right needles. Knit the next 96 s back and forth in stockinette for 5”. Knit the remaining 96 s until they are the same length.
Knit all s in the round again.
Change to US 5 needles when the piece is 28.7”. Knit 1 round while decreasing 20 s evenly. Knit a rib, K1, P1 for 2”, and if you plan to wear the sweater upside down, amke sure to knit tightly. Cast off (quite tightly if you want to wear it upside down).
Pick up 38 s around the sleeve hole. Knit in stockinette for 10.6”. Cast off. Knit another sleeve.
If the sweater falls of your sholders too much, you can alwats sew a button to the top of the v-nech to hold it in place.
