The designer has not done any major reductions, but has smartly added a thin belt-like cord around the waist that cinches it for shape. The only reductions are for the armhole and then neckline.
Please do not worry about the numbers as we are working on a slightly different calculation from this chart- using stitch count multiples.
Here is a video tutorial for the stitch pattern. The small swatch shows you the pattern till Row 5 and then the four rows for the armhole repeat as well. Do pause the video after Row 5, and return to it when you are at the armhole point.
Our stitch count is in multiples of 10 + 2.
As always I ask you to take the largest measure for your start round measurement - so you will measure your round bust/chest and round waist and use the larger measure.
