The shoulders are worked in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the armhole and 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck. When the piece measures 51-53-55-57-59-61 cm work 1 ridge over all stitches – adjust to match the front piece. Cast off – make sure the cast-off edge is not tight!
