Note of pattern clarification: There are no numerical errors in the pattern. However, the designer recommends beginning the front neck shaping when the yoke measures 61/4” for all sizes (instead of just size 32”). This means that for the five  larger sizes, the front neck shaping will be worked at the same time as the raglan armhole shaping.

To shape the front neck, work an M1R or M1L one stitch in from each neck edge, as directed in the Body instructions. For the collar, work until piece measures 28” for all sizes.
