so here's the pattern exactly as printed EXCEPT I've left off numbers not related to the size I'm knitting. (I'm up to the instruction just before Shape Shoulders).
Using 4.50mm Needles, cast on 113 sts.
1st Row - K2, *P1, K1, rep from * to last st, K1.
2nd Row - K1, * P1, K1, rep from * to end.
Repeat Rib (rows 1&2) until 16 rows.
Change to 5.50mm Needles.
Work in stocking stitch until work measures 41cm from beg, ending with a purl row.
SHAPE ARMHOLES -
Cast off 9 sts at beg of next 2 rows...95 sts.
Dec one st at each end of every row until 85 sts,
then in every foll alt row until 79 sts rem. [this puzzles me]
