  4. Knit in Rib stitch for (48), (48), (52), (52) rows.

  1. Starting at back end, bind off center (12) stitches with crochet hook:
  2. Pick up two loops of first center stitch and one loop of next stitch. Pull two loops thru one loop on crochet hook. This leaves one loop on crochet hook. Now, pick up one loop and pull one thru one. Continue this process of picking up one loop until you have closed off the (12) center stitches of the neckline. Place remaining loop on hook on next needle on board at left side of knitting.
  3. Knit in rib stitch starting with needles #1 and #3 up to bound off stitches. Return for complete circular.

  5. Knit this side of shoulder as separate piece starting with needles #1 and #3. Hook over all stitches on both sides, and when you come to the needle with (3) loops, lift (2) over (1). This should bring you to (1) loop on each needle on both shoulders.
  6. Next Row-Decrease (1) stitch at each side of neckline. Knit each section in Rib. Start first shoulder in rib starting with needles #1 and #3.

  8. Each row that you decrease for neckline, start out with needles #1 and #3 for the first section. The other side which starts with decrease stitch will always need to alternate with starting needles #1 and #3 or needles #2 and #4.
  9. Continue the decrease neckline row and shoulder shaping until you have (20), (20), (24), (24) open in center of piece. This will be your neck opening.
