My advice: Make a swatch and calculate how many stitches you need to begin.

How do you make it?

It's easy. Create a swatch and count how many stitches you have in a 10cm/4 inch


In my work 10 cm = 9 stitches / 4 inch = 9 stitches.
I have measured my favorite sweater from the wardrobe and I see that for the front I need 50 cm / 20 inches, than to know how many stitches you need for 50 cm/20 inches use this formula with your numbers: 

For cm:
9 stitches X 50 cm = 450 : 10 = 45 stitches you need to make for the front

For inches:

9 stitches x 20 inches = 180 : 4 = 45 stitches you need to make for the front

After calculations start with foundation chains, in my work it's 49 stitches, number of stitches should be odd.

Then make sleeves, I laso measure my favorite sweater in wardrobe to understand the width of the sleeve, than put the sweater like this and sew details.
