GAUGE: 10 rows make 1 inch.

Work straight for 2 inches. To shape neck, work across first 34 sts, bind off next 14 sts, and work to end of row. Turn and work over these last 34 sts only, binding off 3 sts at neck edge every other row 4 times. Dec. 1 st at same edge every other row twice (20 sts remain). Work straight until piece measures 4 inches from where the sts were taken off on pin. Bind off for shoulder. Attach yarn at neck edge and work other side to correspond.

SLEEVES ... With right side facing, using No. 3 needles, pick up the sts taken off on pin at one armhole; attach yarn and pick up 66 sts around armhole.

   Sew seams in neck bands; then fold in half and whip down loosely on the inside, covering ridge where sts were picked up. Sew up underarm and sleeve seams. Steam all seams lightly through a damp cloth.
