Step 4: Front Panels
Cast on 25 stitches for each front panel. Knit in embossed vines pattern
until the front panels measure 7 inches.
Step 5: Neck Shaping
On the next row, knit 12 stitches for the first front panel, and then bind off the next 9 stitches for the neck shaping. Finish the row in pattern. On the next row, knit in pattern until the neck shaping, and then cast on 9 stitches to replace the ones that were bound off. Knit in pattern for the remaining stitches.
Step 6: Shoulder Shaping
At the armhole edge, bind off 3 stitches once. Then, decrease 1 stitch at the same edge every other row 2 more times. Bind off the remaining stitches.
