- Row 4: *Knit 2, pass slipped stitches over, purl 2, repeat from * to end of row
Repeat these four rows until the piece measures 25 inches from the cast-on edge. Then, switch back to stockinette stitch and continue knitting until the piece measures 30 inches from the cast-on edge.Next, you'll shape the armholes. Bind off the first 5 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows. Then, decrease 1 stitch at each armhole edge every other row until you have 54 stitches remaining.Continue knitting in stockinette stitch until the piece measures 38 inches from the cast-on edge. Then, switch back to the knit 2, purl 2 rib stitch and work for 6 rows. Bind off all stitches in pattern.
