Front. Starting at bottom, with No. 3 needles, cast on 114 sts and work in ribbing of k 1, p 1, for 4", increasing 1 st every 11 sts in last row (124 sts). Change to No. 4 needles and work in stockinette st (k 1 row, p 1 row) until piece measures 14½ inches.

To Shape Armholes: Bind off 6 sts at beginning of each of next 2 rows. Then, dec. 1 st at end of each row until 98 sts remain. Work straight until piece measures 6½ inches from 1st row of armhole shaping, ending with a p row. On next row, k 33, turn (thus starting neck shaping). Work over these 33 sts, decreasing 1 st at neck edge every other row 3 times. Work straight until piece measures 7½" from 1st row of armhole shaping. To shape shoulder, starting at armhole edge, bind off 10 sts every other row until all sts are bound off. Slip the next 32 sts onto a stitch holder. Attach yarn and work the next 33 sts to correspond.

Attach yarn and k the remaining 16 sts, then pick up 18 sts along side of neck, k across 32 sts of Back, pick up 18 sts on other side of Front neck edge and k the remaining 16 sts of Front. Hereafter work in ribbing of k 1, p 1, for 5 inches. Bind off loosely.

Sleeves. Starting at armhole edge, with No. 4 needles cast on 46 sts and work in stockinette st, increasing 1 st at beginning of every row, until there are 90 sts on needle.
