Colorido - A Mystery KAL - Part 2

Here the second part of the pattern:


With MC cast on 36 sts with larger needle. (Do not join)
Neck shaping:
Row 1:  (RS) K1, pm, K1 (seam st), pm, k6 (sleeve sts), pm, k1 (seam st), pm, k18 (back sts), pm, k1 (seam st), pm, k6 (sleeve sts), pm, k1 (seam st), pm, k1.
Row 2:  P  to end.
Row 3:  [K to marker, M1, slm, k1, slm, M1] 4x, k to end. (44 sts)
Row 4:  P to end.
Row 5:  Kfb, [k to marker, M1, slm, k1, slm, M1] 4x, k to last st, kfb.
Row 6:  P to end.

Repeat row 5 & 6 another 3 x.  (10, 1,16, 1, 28, 1, 16, 1, 10 sts = 84 sts)

Abbreviations & Hints:
Increasing row/rnd (inc rnd): Increase before and after each seam stitch. If not mentioned differently use M1 as an increase technique. Unless mentioned differently these rows/rnds are worked with a k st.
M1 purlwise: Lift the running thread between the stitch on the left needle and the stitch on the right, from back to front, so that the left leg of that running thread (the leg attached to that purl st on the left needle) hangs over the front of the left needle. Purl through that front/left loop. That will twist the running thread so you don’t end up with an eyelet.
Seam stitch: Stitch sandwiched by stitch markers (you should have 4 seam sts every rnd)
Sl1: Slip one stitch purlwise.

After joining your new round starts after the first marker. (the one with the different color). This means that if you work an increasing round you will end the round with an increase before your first marker.

Instructions:

On the next right side row work an increasing row (M1 before and after each seam st).
At the end of this completed row cast on 8 sts.

Join and k to first marker. (This marker will show the beginning of you new round. It helps to make this marker a different color than the other ones.)
Your round sequence will be the following now: 
seam st, sleeve, seam st, back, seam st, sleeve, seam st, front  (1, 18, 1,  30, 1, 18, 1, 30 = 100 )
