In 8 cm, divide all the sts in half and after that, finish each side separately. At the same time, start making arm-hole. For this, bind off 1 x 7 sts, 1 x 3 sts, 2 x 2 sts and 1 x 1 st in every 2nd row. For neck-hole chamfer, decrease 1 st from inward side of relief pattern in every 4th and 2nd rows by turn. At 18 cm height of arm-hole (when there are 17 sts of stockinette stitch left on the knitting needles), bind off 1 x 5 sts, 2 x 6 sts in every 2nd row.

At 55 cm height, bind off the central 40 sts for neck-hole and then, finish each side separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 5 sts, 1 x 4 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards. At the same time, make shoulder chamfer in the same way, as for front. Finish another side of neck-hole in symmetry.
