There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the pattern all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.

PATTERN:
Row 1-6: K all sts.
Row 7: * K 1, 2 YOs *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
Row 8: * K 1, drop YOs off the needle *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
Repeat row 1 to 8 until finished measurements.

Work until piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'', adjust so that next row is 1st row in pattern. Bind off the middle 20-22-24-26-26-28 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 24-26-28-30-34-38 sts remain on the shoulder.
