Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 116-128-140-152-164-176 sts on circular needle size 7 mm with light beige mix. Switch to off white, work rib = K 2/P 2 for 7 cm. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and K 1 round while at the same time dec 20 sts evenly = 96-108-120-132-144-156 sts. Continue in stocking st. Insert a marker in first st at beg of round and a marker in the 49th-55th-61st-67th-73rd-79th st – these marks the sides.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm, work diagram M.2 - adjust so that st marked with an arrow is mid front. When diagram M.2 has been worked, work 1 round with off white while at the same time casting off 7 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. st with marker + 3 sts on each side of this st) = 82-94-106-118-130-142 sts remain on needle. Now piece measures approx. 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 23 cm, work diagram M.2 – adjust pattern so that st with arrow is mid on top of sleeve – work the inc sts gradually in pattern.
After diagram M.2, work 1 round with off white while at the same time casting off 7 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. st with marker + 3 sts on each side of this st) = 29-29-35-35-41-41 sts remain on needle. The piece now measures approx. 43 cm in all sizes.
