Wavy pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 16 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-10th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-19th rows.
Pattern for placket: work with half crochets, insert the crochet hook only through back loop. Start every row with 2 chain sts increase instead of the 1st half crochet and finish with 1 half crochet in the 2nd chain st increase of the previous row.
Stitches control: wavy pattern: 17 sts x 13 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Pattern for placket: 16,5 sts x 15 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

For smooth rounding, decrease 3 x 1 st in every row from inwards. In 65,5 cm = 85 rows from the set-up row, finish your work on the rest 20 (28) 36 sts of shoulder.
