Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, 5-5-6-7-8-8 stocking sts, M.1 (= 9 sts), 62-72-79-89-100-111 stocking sts, M.2A (= 19 sts), 62-72-79-89-100-111 stocking sts, M.1 (= 9 sts), 5-5-6-7-8-8 stocking sts and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue pattern like this – NOTE: After 1 vertical repeat of M.2A, continue in M.2B, work 8-8-8-8-9-9 vertical repeats of M.2B, then work 1 repeat of M.2C and then continue in reverse stocking st on the 19 sts in M.2 up to neckline dec.

Repeat the dec on every 3-3-3.5-3.5-3.5-4. cm a total of 8-8-7-7-7-6 times = 141-161-181-203-227-253 sts.

Repeat the inc on every 2-2-3-3-4-4.5 cm a total of 6-6-5-5-4-4 times = 165-185-201-223-243-269 sts.
Note! When piece measures 45 cm dec for the neck is starting on all sizes. See explanation under right front piece.
When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm work next row as follows: work 36-41-44-50-54-60 sts as before (= front piece), cast off 8-8-10-10-12-12 sts for armhole (i.e. 4-4-5-5-6-6 sts each side of marker), work 77-87-93-103-111-125 sts (= back piece), cast off 8-8-10-10-12-12 sts for armhole and work the remaining 36-41-44-50-54-60 sts as before (= front piece). Complete each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 77-87-93-103-111-125 sts. Continue as before in stocking st and M.2 on the middle 19 sts AT THE SAME TIME cast off for armhole at the beg of every row each side as follows: 3 sts 0-0-0-1-1-2 times, 2 sts 3-5-6-7-8-10 times and 1 st 5-5-5-4-5-4 times = 55-57-59-61-63-65 sts (includes 1 edge st each side).

Cast off for neckline at the beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 1-1-2-2-2-2 times and 1 st 2-2-3-3-3-3 times = 8-8-9-9-10-10 sts left on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 36-41-44-50-54-60 sts. Continue as before in stocking st and M.1, AT THE SAME TIME cast off for armhole at the beg of every row from the side (i.e. on every row from WS) as described for back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 45 cm for all sizes cast off 6-6-7-8-9-9 sts towards mid front, i.e. from RS for neck. Cast off to shape the neckline at the beg of every row from mid front as follows: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 3 times, then cast off at the beg of every other row from mid front: 1 st 2-3-2-3-2-2 times.
