Hem: is worked flat sideways, see direction of knitting in the chart. Using larger needles cast on 54(57)59(62)64(67) sts and purl one row (WS). Start working according to chart. Work 1st row as follows: section A (=3sts), section B (=9(11)11(13)13(15) sts), section C (=12 sts), section D (=9(10)11(12)13(14) sts), section E (=14 sts), section F (=3(3)4(5)5(5) sts) and section G (=4 sts). Repeat rows 1-12 of the chart for sections A, B, C, E, F and rows 1-8 for section G. Slip first stitch of every RS row.
Attention! After working first 3 rows start working short rows as follows:
*RS row: work 34(37)38(41)42(45) sts in textured pattern according to the chart. Turn work, make yo, work all sts in pattern. 
Next RS row: work 13(15)15(17)17(19) sts in pattern, turn work, make yo, work back.
Next RS row: work over all 54(57)59(62)64(67) sts, work yos as k2tog with the following stitch.
Work next 3 rows in textured pattern over all sts.*
Repeat ** (8 rows) untill left edge (=shorter, inside edge) measures about 116(124)132(138)146(154) cm. Leave sts on hold.
Assembling: sew sleeve seams (marked with red in the drawing 1). Attach sleeves to the back piece (marked with green). Using pins attach hem to the back and sleeves, pull slightly while pinning. Check that the lenght of the hem is right. Bind off sts. 
Sew cast on and cast off edges together so, that hem forms a circle (marked with blue in the drawing 2). Sew hem to the back and sleeves as shows in drawing 3 (marked with red).
Note from translator! You might want to use provisional cast on for hem piece, this way you'll get much better looking seam. You might want to place seam under the arm to make it even more unnoticable.
