How to knit tank top:
The front and back bodies are knitted in the same way. It is cast on 100 stitches and then it is ribbed 1×1 for 12 cm and changed to knit stitch.
After knitting 2 rows, center the stitches and apply the model in the diagram to 31 stitches in the middle. Add 1 stitch to the model in the diagram from both sides of 31 stitches in every row.
Increase 1 stitch at both sides 8 times spacing 10 rows and have 116 stitches in total. When the body measures 49 cm, cast off 1 stitch at both sides 5+22 times for the armhole.
When the body measures 55 cm, center the stitches for the neck and work 90 stitches in the middle in 1×1 rib. When the body measures 56 cm, cast off all stitches together and bind off.
Pick up 65 stitches on the needle around the sleeve and rib 1×1 for 2 cm and then cast off all stitches together and bind off. Work in the same way around the other sleeve.
Sorry I don’t understand this: cast off 1 stitch at both sides 5+22 times for the armhole. Does it mean that I need to cast of 1 st each end of the row for 27 rows? Its a strange instruction and needs expanding.
