Repeat last 2 rows 3 more times--6 sts. remain.
Work even in St st until piece measure 10 1/2 ".

OK..... so my question is: is the 10 1/2 " meant for the particular section I am currently knitting with the St st.... or is it this part along with the Body of the sweater.

Pattern on page 24 Green & White cardigan.
Thank you in advance....

The 10.5" is for the whole piece so you'd measure from the top or bottom where you started to the stitches on the needles.
