Cast on 136 s on US 4 needles and work garter in the round for about 1”. Change to US 7 needles and work the following rounds:

Round 1: Knit, while at the same time increase 40 s evenly around the round. (= 176 s on the needles) Place marker at the beginning of the round and after 88 s to mark the sides.
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: Knit
Round 4: *Knit the 4th s on the left needle, but leave it on the left needle. Then knit s number 1, 2 and 3 as usual and let the 4th s go after them.* (It´s very important to “give” enough yarn when knitting that 4th s, we don´t want any tension in the garment. You don´t want to knit too loose either, that will make holes in the fabric. We strongly recommend making a swatch!) Repeat between * and * throughout the round.

Then repeat the following 10 rounds until your piece measures 13.5 “

Round 1-4: Knit
Round 5:  K 2 s. * Knit the 4th s on the left needle, but leave it on the left needle. Then knit s number 1, 2 and 3 as usual and let the 4th s go after them.* Repeat between * and * throughout the round + the 2 first s you knitted at the beginning of the round.
Round 6-9: Knit
Round 10: * Knit the 4th s on the left needle, but leave it on the left needle. Then knit s number 1, 2 and 3 as usual and let the 4th s go after them.* Repeat between * and * throughout the round.

The last round should be a round 5 or 10.

Knit one round while decreasing 40 s evenly around. We did k2tog for decreases.
Change back to US 4 needles. On the next round knit until 5 s is left before the first marker, bind off 10 s.  Repeat for the other side. Continue around. When you reach the point of the first bind off, make 38 new stitches over the arm (We did backward loops). Continue around and repeat for the other side. Knit 29 s. You are now at the middle back. Turn and knit 1 row back. Slip the first stitch on every row from now on out for a nice edge. The rest of the top is knitted in garter back and forth.

Decreases starts on next row from the right side:
Knit while decreasing 20 s evenly around. (Use K2tog)
Knit 3 rows.

Knit while decreasing 18 s evenly.
Knit 3 rows.

Knit while decreasing 18 s evenly.
