Now divide the piece with 70 sts on front piece and 70 sts on back piece. Slip sts for front piece on a stitch holder and continue on back piece. Cast off for neckline at the beg of every row from the top: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 66 sts.
Continue until piece measures 75 cm = mid back.
Now cast on new sts at the beg of every row from the top: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 70 sts.

Continue until piece measures 75 cm.
Now cast on new sts at the beg of every row from the top: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times = 70 sts.

Slip all sts back on needle = 140 sts, and work the other half of jumper as described above, but dec instead of inc. Finish with 5 cm moss st on needle size 3 mm and cast off.
