Now insert 2 markers in the piece, 35-38-41-44-48 sts in from each side (= 70-76-82-87-95 sts between markers on back piece). Then work in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side towards mid front.

When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 1 st on each side of marker).

When piece measures 27-31-34-39-44 cm / 10 5/8"-12 1/4"-13 3/8"-15 1/4"-17 1/4", bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 3 sts on each side of marker) = 44-50-52-56-60 sts remain on sleeve.

Continue the pattern like this.
After A.1 87-99-105-111-123 sts remain on needle. P 1 row from WS. Then work an elevation in the back of neck with short rows as follows (1st row = RS): K until 18-19-20-22-26 sts remain, turn, tighten thread and P until 18-19-20-22-26 sts remain in the other side.
