NEW BALL TIPS:
When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm / 6'' – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm / 6'' on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the transition invisible.
See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
RIGHT FRONT PIECE + SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on a circular needle to make room for all the sts. READ TIP FOR SWITCHING THREADS!
Cast on 23-24-26-27-29-31 sts on circular needle size 15 mm / US 19 with Polaris. The first 12 sts on needle (seen from RS) are worked according to diagram M.1, K 4 rows over the remaining sts before continuing these in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 25-26-27-28-29-30 cm / 9¾''-10¼''-10 5/8''-11''-11 3/8''-11¾'', inc 1 st in the side. Repeat inc when piece measures 31-32-33-34-35-36 cm / 12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼'' = 25-26-28-29-31-33 sts.
When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm / 13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15''-15¼''-15¾'', cast on 10-10-9-8-7-6 new sts at the end of next row from RS = 35-36-37-37-38-39 sts on needle. Insert a marker - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work the new sts in stockinette st except the outermost edge st which is K on all rows.
When piece measures approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'' from marker (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), work the first 12 sts as before according to diagram M.1, then slip these sts on a stitch holder = 23-24-25-25-26-27 sts remain on needle, work the rest of row. Insert another marker (= mid on top of shoulder) – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work 2 rows back and forth over sts on needle. Slip sts on a stitch holder and put piece aside.
LEFT FRONT PIECE + SLEEVE:
Work as right front piece but reversed - work diagram M.2 instead of diagram M.1. Work the 12 sts in diagram M.2 at the top by shoulder from WS before slipping them on a stitch holder. Work the rest of row, continue with back piece without slipping sts on a stitch holder.
Work 1st row from RS as follows: Work sts from left front piece + sleeve, cast on 9-9-9-11-11-11 new sts (= back of neck) and work right front piece + sleeve on to circular needle = 55-57-59-61-63-65 sts. Continue back and forth in stockinette st with K1 edge st in each side on all rows, until piece measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm / 8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾''-10¼'' from marker mid on top of shoulder.
On next row bind off the first and last 10-10-9-8-7-6 sts, cut the yarn. Work in stockinette st over the remaining 35-37-41-45-49-53 sts until piece measures 28-29-30-31-32-33 cm / 11''-11 3/8''-11¾''-12¼''-12½''-13''. Now dec 1 st in each side. Repeat dec when piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm / 13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15''-15¼'' = 31-33-37-41-45-49 sts.
Continue to work until piece measures approx. 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm / 21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾'' (adjust so that next row is worked from WS). K 3 rows over all sts, then loosely bind off.
