Main pattern: due to the scheme; start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows.
Stitches control: 16 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 79 (91) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase with white yarn and work with the main pattern due to the colors order (as they go in supplies part). In 42,5 cm from the set-up row, leave 3 (4) sts from both sides for arm-holes and decrease 1 (2) x 2 sts and 3 (1) x 1 st in every row. Make 3 single crochets upon the central 3 sts in the 42nd row (central sts). In 43rd row = 52,5 cm from the set-up row, leave the central 3 sts for V-shape neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For neck-hole chamfer, make decreases in every row in the following way: * 1 x 1 st and 1 x 2 sts*; repeat from * to * x 2 (3) times, 2 (1) x 1 st. Finish at 62,5 (65) cm height.
Make in the same way, but without neck-hole.

For sleeve chamfers, increase 7 (4) x 1 st in every row form both sides and 0 (7) x 1 st in every 2nd row, include the increased sts in the pattern.
