Repeat from * across, ending row with k 1. 2nd row: K across. 3rd row: K across. 4th row: P across. 5th and 6th rows: Same as 3rd and 4th rows. These 6 rows constitute the pattern. Repeat pattern until piece measures 3½ inches from back of neck, ending with the 3rd row. Cast on 7 sts for armholes at the end of the next 2 rows (107 sts).
