See diagrams A.1 to A.9. The diagrams show all rounds/rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked top down, first back and forth on circular needle, then in the round on circular needle. This is done to get a vent mid front.
Cast on 119 sts on a short circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Belle. Work A.1 over all sts, on round where K 2 tog and YOs are worked, finish with K 1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue as follows: A.2 (= 8 sts), * A.4 (= 2 sts), A.5 (= 8 sts), A.6 (= 3 sts), A.3 (= 17 sts) *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, A.4, A.5, A.6, A.7 (= 8 sts). Every time A.4 to A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically, work 2 repetitions more of A.5 between A.4 and A.6. Continue this pattern back and forth until 2 repetitions of A.2/A.7 have been worked vertically. Cut the yarn. Now work in the round over all sts but beg round before the 8 sts in A.7. Work A.3 over A.2/A.7, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 st between A.2 and A.7 (= middle st in A.3). Continue this pattern upwards, switch to a longer circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.4 to A.6 have been worked 6-7-8 times vertically (there are now 504-568-632 sts on round), continue as follows: * Work A.9 (= 17 sts) over A.3, work A.8 (= 16 sts) over the next 109-125-141 sts, AT THE SAME TIME on first round in A.8 inc 3 sts evenly over the 109-125-141 sts (= 7-8-9 repetitions of A.8) *, repeat from *-* 3 more times = 516-580-644 sts. When A.8/A.9 have been worked one time vertically, there are 712-804-896 sts on round. P 1 round over all sts. Bind off. Piece now measures approx. 52-57-63 cm / 20½"-22½"-24 3/4" mid front.

Cut 2 lengths of 3 metres/3 1/4 yds each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread tie up and down around the neck. Thread 5 beads in each end of the tie. Cut 8 lengths of yarn of 20 cm / 8''. Thread the ends through the end of the tie and fold them double. Twine one of the strand around the top of tassel. Make a tassel the same way in the other end of tie.
