How to make a split for neck

In this DROPS video we show how to make a split with edges in garter st.

First knit a couple of rows with garter st on the middle sts of the front piece according to pattern, and the rest of the sts as before. Now divide piece for split and complete each side separately; knit a row from RS and in the middle of the garter sts, turn and knit the row back from WS. Keep knitting back and forth with garter sts towards the split and rem sts as before until finished measure according to pattern.

Now make the other side, begin from RS and mid front.
Beg by picking up 1 st in first st on the other side of split and work this tog with first st on needle. Do this to make bottom of split even. Continue as on first side.
