Lilac Crochet Vest
400 (450)g of lilac Puntino yarn (100% cotton; 160m/50g);
Crochet hook 3,5.
Size: S (M).
Lace pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 33 + 10 + 3 chain sts increase. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-5th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-5th row, finish with the 4th row.
Net pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 3 + 2 + 3 chain sts increase. Make in the same way, as lace pattern, but due to the scheme 2. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd and 3rd rows.
Fringe: 1st row: single crochets;
2nd row: * 1 single crochet, 1 picot, skip 1 st*; repeat from * to *.
Stitches control: lace pattern: 23 sts x 11,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Net pattern: 25 sts x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 274 (307) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with lace pattern. In 20 cm from the set-up row, decrease 9 (10) x 1 st, for this, make 2 double crochets together in every group of double crochets. Repeat these decreases in 30 and 36 cm from the set-up row. In 42 cm from the set-up row, make 209 (227) single crochets, then, work with net pattern. In 18 cm from the beginning of net pattern, divide your work to front and back.
At first, make back on the central 40 (44) cm, leave 1 x 2 cm and 2 x 1 cm in every row from both sides for arm-holes. In 32 cm from the beginning of net pattern, leave the central 12 cm for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 2 cm and 1 x 1 cm in every row from inwards. In 35 cm from the beginning of net pattern, finish your work.
Then, make right front on the first 20 (22) cm, make arm-hole form the right side in the same way, as for back. At the same time, leave 1 cm from left side for neck-hole chamfer and 16 x 0,5 cm in every row. Finish your work at the height of back.
Make in symmetry to the right front.
Make shoulder seams. Fasten the edges of front with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “shrimp stitch”. Fasten neck-hole and arm-holes with fringe. Make the 2nd row of fringe along the bottom. For strap, make a chain of 150 cm long.
