All decs are made on right side rows. Dec 1 st inside 1 edge st + 2 sts in stockinette st as follows:

At the same time when the piece measures 44-45-47-48 cm put the center 8 sts on a st holder for the neck. Then bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 4 times = 4-4-5-5 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off the remaining sts, the piece measures approx. 50-52-54-56 cm to shoulder.

Hola! Me encuentro elaborando este hermoso modelo pero tengo una duda en la parte donde se hace el escote, dice que pase los 8 puntos centrales a una aguja auxiliar, esto quiere decir que los hombros se haran en dos partes? soy practicamente nueva es esta tecnica y me es muy facil confundirme asi que agradezco que me lo puedan explicar Saludos y gracias!

Hola Gisse. Exactamente después de pasar los 8 puntos centrales a un gancho auxiliar, tienes que también pasar los puntos de un lado del delantero a otra aguja auxiliar y ahora trabajas solo los puntos de una parte del delantero. Trabajas la forma del escote según el patrón. Después de rematar los puntos de un hombro, pasas de vuelta los puntos de otro lado del delantero a la aguja para trabajar. Los 8 puntos centrales que están en espera los trabajamos junto con el cuello.
