Cast on 172 s on 32” US 10 needles with double strands of yarn. Work ribbing in the round, K1, P1 for 2”.

Then work in the following manner:

Initial round: Change to US 11 needles. Knit while increasing 52 s evenly on the round. = 224 s. Place markers at the beginning of the round and after 112 s to mark the sides.

Round 1: Knit
Round 2: *C4B, C4F* Repeat between * and * throughout the round.
Round 3, 4 and 5: Knit
Round 6: *C4F, C4B* Repeat between * and * throughout the round.
Round 7 og 8: Knit

Repeat these 8 rounds until the piece measures about 18”. End with a round 4 or 8. Divide into front and back pieces.

Front
Knit back and forth. Start from the wrong side. If you ended with a round 4, start row 5 below, if you ended with a round 8, start row 1.

Row 1: Purl
Row 2: *C4B, C4F* Repeat between * and * throughout the row.
Row 3: Purl

Arms
With US 10 needles pick up 54 s around the arm openings. Work ribbing, K1, P1 for 16.5” or as long as you like. You might want to tighten the cuffs a bit by knitting tha last two inches with a smaller needle. (US 6 or 7). Bind off. Rinse and block slightly. Dry flat.
