Back. Starting at bottom, cast on 88 sts on No. 4 needles and work in ribbing of k 1, p 1, for 3 inches. Change to No. 6 needles and work in pattern as follows: 1st row: P 1, * k 6, p 2, repeat from * across, ending row with k 6, p 1. 2nd row: P across. These 2 rows constitute the pattern. Repeat these 2 rows alternately until work measures 11½ inches from top of waistband.
To Shape Armholes: Bind off 3 sts at beginning of each of next 2 rows. Then decrease 1 st at both ends of every other row until 74 sts remain.

Next row: Work in pattern across first 29 sts, bind off next 16 sts (for back of neck), continue in pattern across remaining 29 sts. To shape shoulders, work over these last 29 sts only, keeping armhole edge straight, decreasing 1 st at neck edge every row until 21 sts remain. On next row starting at armhole edge, bind off first 7 sts, work in pattern across. Next row: Work in pattern across. Repeat these last 2 rows until all sts are bound off. Attach yarn to opposite side of neck and work other shoulder to correspond.

Next row: Work in pattern across first 33 sts, bind off next 8 sts (to start neck shaping), continue in pattern across remaining 33 sts. Work over these last 33 sts only, keeping armhole edge straight, decreasing 1 st at neck edge every row until 21 sts remain. Then shape shoulder as for back.
