Finishing

Pin to measurements wrong side up, mist and allow to dry. Sew the shoulder seams and side seams.

Border: Using the smaller needles pick up and knit sts from the RS: 124(124)132(132)138(138) sts from the right front before the slanted neckline, place marker, 57(59)64(65)67(69) sts from right front neckline (before the shoulder seam), 37(37)41(41)41(45) sts from back neckline, 57(59)64(65)67(69) sts from left front neckline, place marker, 124(124)132(132)138(138) sts from left front = 399(403)433(435)451(459) sts.

Begin ribbing on the WS: p2, k1, *p1, k1*, repeat *–*, p2.

After 2 rows begin short rows: work ribbing until 1 st remains before 2nd marker. Turn work, yarn over. Work until 1 st remains before 1st marker. Turn work, yarn over. *Work until 5(5)6(6)6(7) sts remain before next yo, turn work and yo.* Repeat *–* until there are 9 yarn overs on both sides.

On the next row work ribbing to end. At the same time knit or purl the yarn overs together with their corresponding sts: k2tog if the previous st is a knit st and p2tog if a purl st.

Work ribbing for 3 rows. On the first row work the remaining yarn overs together with their corresponding sts: skp if the previous st is a knit st and ssp if it is a purl st (= slip 2 sts knitwise one by one from left-hand needle to right-hand needle, move both sts back to left-hand needle and purl them together through the back loop).

Repeat the short rows. After that, work ribbing and on the first two rows work the yarn overs together with their corresponding sts as established.

When the border measures 5 cm from the bottom edge, bind off in pattern.

Attach the sleeves. Sew the sleeve seams.
