BACK: Starting at neck, Ch.33. Work Row 1 of Pattern St. (15 Patterns). Continue in Pattern St., increasing 5 Patterns across next row.
To Increase: Work 1 H.D.C. in same St. as last Pattern, Ch.1, then work in same St. for first loop of next Pattern. On following row work in the Ch.1 of H.D.C. as if it were the Ch.1 of Pattern. Work 1 row even, increase 5 Patterns again, then every other row 2 times more (being careful not to increase over previous increases), then every row 2 times. There are 45 Patterns across on Row 10.

Slip St. across to 6th Pattern from end of row, work 6 Patterns across, Ch.2, turn. (Long edge is shoulder edge, short edge is front edge.)
FRONT: Increase 3 Patterns on next row, then every 4th row 4 times more, being careful not to have increases come over previous increases and to space increases at least 2 inches from front edge, 23 Patterns across row. Increase 5 Patterns, in same manner, every 4th row 5 times, 48 Patterns across row. Work even until work measures 17 inches from start of Front.
Next row, starting at side edge, slip St. across 24 Patterns, working 1 slip St. in the Ch.1 of Pattern and 1 slip St. in the St. between, work across remaining 24 Patterns for 30 rows, break yarn and fasten.
