Cast on 100 (134) sts and make 1,5 cm = 6 rows of relief placket, increase 5 sts in the last WS row = 105 (139) sts. Work with relief pattern. In 50,5 cm = 152 rows (57 cm = 172 rows) from placket, bind off 5 (7) sts from both sides of placket for shoulder chamfers and 1 x 5 sts and 2 x 4 sts (3 x 7 sts) in every 2nd row.

Make in the same way, as back, but bind off the central 21 (29) sts in 46 cm = 138 rows (52,5 cm = 158 rows) from placket and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bid off 1 x 5 sts, 1 x 4 sts, 1 x 3 sts, 1 x 2 sts and 6 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards. In 53,5 cm = 160 rows (60 cm = 180 rows) from placket, bind off the rest 4 (7) sts of shoulder from each side of placket.

After that, work with relief pattern, for size L-XL, start with 1 selvage st and sts before arrow A, 1 pattern repeat, finish with sts before arrow B and 1 selvage st; replace grey sts in the beginning and end of row to knit sts. In 21,5 cm = 64 rows (16 cm = 48 rows) from placket, increase 1 st from both sides for sleeve chamfers and bind off 1 x 1 st in the next 10th row (5 x 1 st in every 6th row) = 75 (103) sts, make the increased sts for size S with stockinette stitch, for size L-XL include them in the pattern repeat.
