ERRATA
We regret that the cast-on stitch count and front shaping as originally published is incorrect.

The Body cast-on should read as follows:

The front shaping should read as follows:
Shape Armholes
Work as for back; and at the same time, when armholes measures 4 (4¼, 4½, 4¾, 5, 3¼, 5½, 5¾)” from divide (ending after a WS row), pm each side of center 23 (21, 21, 19, 19, 17, 17, 15) sts. cont on next RS row as follows:

Shape Front Neck
Next row (RS): Knit to first marker, remove marker, join a second ball of yarn, bind off center 23 (21, 21, 19, 19, 17, 17, 15) sts removing the second marker, knit to end; 12 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26) sts rem on each side after all shaping is completed.

Cont working both sides at the same time, with separate balls of yarn as follows:

Work 1 WS row even.

Dec Row (RS): Knit to 3 sts before neck edge, ssk, k1; on other side, k1, k2tog, knit to end—1 st decreased each side.
