In 47,5 cm = 62 rows (50,5 cm = 66 rows) 53,5 cm = 70 rows from lower placket, bind off all sts in one row, the central 18 sts form neck-hole, 14 (16) 18 sts from each side – shoulder edges. Transfer the previously left sts to working needles and continue work with stockinette stitch in straight and reversed order. In 38,5 cm = 50 rows (41,5 cm = 54 rows) 44,5 cm = 58 rows from lower placket, bind off the central 10 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 2 sts and 1 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards, then, 1 x 1 st in the next 4th row. Bind off the rest 14 (16) 18 sts of shoulder at the same height as back. Make the second side in symmetry.
