Crochet the 2nd row as follows: ch 6, 1 sc in first ch-loop , * ch 5, 1 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat from * - * across row and turn the work. Repeat 2nd row until the piece measures 15 cm. Now inc 1 loop at each side by crochet 1 extra ch-loop in the next to last ch-loop at each side = 17-19-21-23-25 ch-loops.
Armhole: When the piece measures 33-34-35-36-37 cm bind off for armhole as follows:
Size S + M: Crochet until last ch-loop, turn the work, sl st to center of 1st ch-loop, continue with ch-loops and repeat bind off at the other side – see diagr 1B.
Size L + XL: Follow bind off instructions for size S + M 1 time, turn the piece and crochet back to last ch-loop, turn the work, continue with ch-loops and repeat bind off at the other side – see diagr. 1C.
Size XXL: Follow bind off for size S + M: 2 times– see diagr 1D.
You have now bound off 2-2-3-3-4 ch-loops at each side = 13-15-15-17-17 ch-loops remain on row. Crochet as before until the piece measures 36-38-40-42-44 cm, then bind off for the neck as follows: 4 ch-loops, turn the work, sl st to center of first ch-loop and continue with ch-loops = 3 ch-loops on shoulder. Continue as before until the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm. Repeat at the other side of neck.

Back: Crochet the same as the front. Bind off for armholes as on front. When the piece measures 48-50-52-54-56 cm bind off all sts for the neck by crocheting 2 rows over only 3 ch-loops each shoulder (do not crochet over the center 7-9-9-11-11 ch-loops).
