Shoulder piece: Cast on 21 sts on needle size 4 mm with 1 thread of each quality. K 3 rows and continue as follows from the RS: 3 garter sts – see above - * K3, P1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times until 6 sts remain, K3, 3 garter sts. When piece measures 2 cm inc 1 st in all P-sections = 24 sts. Repeat the inc when piece measures 6 cm = 27 sts. When piece measures 31 cm K 1 row from the RS, at the same time inc 14 sts evenly = 41 sts. K 1 row from WS. K 1 row from the RS, at the same time inc 14 sts evenly = 55 sts. K 1 row from WS, K 1 row from the RS, at the same time inc 15 sts evenly = 70 sts. K 1 row from WS. Change to needle size 5 mm and work M.1 back and forth across the row (= 70 sts). Continue as follows from the RS: M.2 (= 12 sts), M.3 (= 6 sts), M.4 (= 34 sts), M.5 (= 6 sts) and M.6 (= 12 sts). Continue in pattern like this until piece measures 122 cm, or desired length (33 cm left to finished measurements). Work M.1. Change to needle size 4 mm and continue as follows: K 1 row from the RS, at the same time dec 15 sts evenly = 55 sts. K 1 row from WS. K 1 row from the RS, at the same time dec 14 sts evenly = 41 sts. K 1 row from WS. K 1 row from the RS, at the same time dec 14 sts evenly = 27 sts. K 1 row from WS. Insert a marking Thread (MT) in piece and continue as follows from the RS: 3 garter sts, * K3, P3 *, repeat from *-* until 6 sts remain, K3, 3 garter sts. Continue like this until piece measures approx 24 cm from MT. Now dec all P-sections from P3 to P2 = 24 sts. Continue until piece measures 28 cm from MT and now dec all P-sections from P2 to P1 = 21 sts. When piece measures approx 30 cm from MT K 2 rows on all sts and cast off loosely
