BACK PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts.
LOOSELY cast on 62-66-70-76-80-86 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with Verdi and work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above (1st row = RS).
Switch to circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 and work next row from RS as follows: 3 edge sts in garter st, PATTERN according to diagram A.1 (- see explanation above, on back piece beg pattern on row marked with arrow in diagram) until 3 sts remain and finish with 3 edge sts in garter st.
Continue the pattern like this. When piece measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm / 4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5"-5"-5½"-5½", insert 1 marker in each side (marks height of vent).
Continue the pattern with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures 50-51-52-53-54-55 cm / 19¾''-20''-20½''-21''-21¼''-21½'', work in stockinette st until finished measurements BUT on 1st row from RS inc 14-14-16-16-18-18 sts evenly = 76-80-86-92-98-104 sts.
When piece measures 62-63-64-65-66-67 cm / 24½"-24 3/4"-25 1/4"-25½"-26"-26½", bind off 1 st in each side for armhole = 74-78-84-90-96-102 sts.
When piece measures 74-76-78-80-82-84 cm / 29 1/8''-30''-30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33'', work 2 ridges over the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 sts (work the other sts as before).
On next row after the 2 ridges, bind off the middle 10-10-12-12-14-14 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to dec 1 st on the next row from neck - READ DECREASE TIP = 31-33-35-38-40-43 sts remain on the shoulder.
Work in stockinette st with 4 sts in garter st towards the neck until piece measures 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-34''-34½'' and loosely bind off.

Continue pattern with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.

On next row from RS work in garter st over the middle 8 sts (work the other sts as before).
Repeat this on the next 3 rows (= 4 times in total), piece measures approx. 52-54-54-56-56-58 cm / 20½"-21 1/4"-21 1/4"-22"-22"-22 3/4".
Now divide for v-neck by slipping the first 38-40-43-46-49-52 sts on a stitch holder.

RIGHT SIDE:
= 38-40-43-46-49-52 sts.
Continue in stockinette st but work the outermost 4 sts towards mid front + edge st in the side in garter st. AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS beg dec for v-neck and dec as follows – READ DECREASE TIP: Dec 1 st every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) a total of 6-6-7-7-8-8 times.
