Continue with PATTERN, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 34-34-34-32-28-26 sts for sleeves (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width) at the end of the next two rows = 136-140-144-148-148-152 sts. Continue with PATTERN but work the outermost 10 sts in each side in garter st on all rows. When piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm, cast off the middle 16-16-16-18-18-18 sts for neck = 60-62-64-65-65-67 sts remain on each shoulder/sleeve. Cast off when piece measures 72-74-76-78-80-82 cm.
