After 32R of raglan increases, knit even for 2 more rows, then work left sleeve.
You have a choice here- you can put sleeve sts on holders or yarn (which are then knit with dpn's and no seams) and continue to knit the body OR do the sleeves now and sew later.
(remove markers as you go)
with circular needle, work 26 st of left front, with straight needles (using a seperate ball of yarn) knit across 40 st of left sleeve, (counts as Row 1).
Working back and forth in ss and decreasing 1 st @ side every 5th row-(5x) = 30
