Continue as follows from RS: 1 edge st, 9-10-11-12-13-14 sts in reverse stocking st, M.1 (= 24 sts), 9-10-11-12-13-14 sts in reverse stocking st, 1 edge st. Continue like this. AT THE SAME TIME inc each side as follows:
On right side of piece (at beg of row):
Inc 2 st by working 2 sts in the 2 outermost sts, repeat the inc on every 4th row a total of 14-13-12-11-9-7 times and then on every other row a total of 9-10-11-12-14-16 times.

Work inc sts in reverse stocking st. Continue like this. When inc on right side of piece are complete (piece now measures approx 37-36-35-34-32-30 cm) dec 1 edge st on right side of piece, continue as before, but now work the first 5 sts on needle in garter st.

Now cast off for neck at beg of every row from WS as follows: 10 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 3 times = 98-102-104-108-112-114 sts. Continue until piece measures 59-60-61-62-63-64 cm, now dec 6 sts evenly on M.1 = 92-96-98-102-106-108 sts.
