3 lines from the bottom of Body, add the following text: “…6) sts for underarm, work across Right Front sts—132…sts. Join for working in the rnd; work to beginning of rnd marker.

In Back, Front, and Yoke schematic, delete neck measurements on the left-hand side; point at Neck vee should extend to same place as bottom of armholes.

In Sleeve schematic, measurements at the top and bottom of the sleeve should be reversed (measurements that begin with 9 ¼ should be at Ribbing end, measurements that begin with 11 should be at other end).

For the first size (X-Small) only:
In the initial CO row for the Yoke, CO 2 sts for each of the Sleeves, instead of 1 st. This will increase the total number of sts by 2 throughout the Yoke, and the number of sts in each Sleeve by 1. You will end the Yoke with 122 sts; 28 sts for each Sleeve. When working the Body, you will place 28 sts on waste yarn for each of the Sleeves. When working the Sleeves, each Sleeve will have 30 sts (instead of 29) after you CO the 2 underarm sts. When you finish the Sleeve shaping, each Sleeve will have 26 sts (instead of 25); you will only increase 2 sts on the last rnd to get to a final count of 28 sts before changing to 3×1 Rib in-the-Round. The schematic will change as follows: 6″ for the Yoke CO width, 10″ for the Sleeve at underarm, and 8 3/4″ for the Sleeve at BO.

Stitch counts for X-Small, Medium, and Large on Increase Row 2 should be: 34 (34, 34, 36, 42, 44, 46) sts.

Under Body section, work to first marker before placing sleeve sts on waste yarn. Change “second marker” to “first marker”. Change “Right” to “Left” once, and change “Left” to “Right” once.
