Step 1:
Measure the neck circumference of the garment (not your neck circumference). Divide it by 2.

Step 2:
Draw a rectangle in size 1/2 of the garment neck circumference x 35-40 cm = points A-B-C-D

Step 3:
Draw a circle at the upper right corner of the rectangle with radius 8 cm

Step 4:
Add points as follows:
- midway of points A and D = point E
- 8 cm from point B to the left = point F
- 8 cm from point B downwards = point G
- midway of points C-D = point H , use snap to mid point (CtrlF2)
- midway of points C-H = point J
- midway of points D-K = point L
- midway of points H-L = point K

Step 5 :
- move point A 2 cm to the left
- move points D and L 3 cm down
- move point K 1.5 cm down

Step 6:
Change points B, E, H and L to round points (Points/Round Vertex)
