In 48,5 cm = 102 rows (46,5 cm = 98 rows) from placket, bind off 1 x 4 sts from both sides for arm-holes = 67 (73) sts. In 66,5 cm = 140 rows from placket, bind off all the sts, central 31 (33) sts form neck-hole, outer 18 (20) sts from both sides – shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but for deeper neck-hole, bind off the central 21 (23) sts in 59 cm = 124 rows from placket and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 3 sts and 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row. Bind off the rest 18 (20) sts of each shoulder at the height of back.
Cast on 35 (39) sts for each sleeve and make 4,5 cm of 1 x 1 rib between selvage sts for lower placket, start with 1 WS row.

Then, continue work in the following way: 1 selvage st, 0 (2) sts of wrong-side pattern, 45 sts of relief pattern, 0 (2) sts of wrong-side pattern, 1 selvage st.
