Green Relief Jacket
500g of green Merino 2000 yarn (100% merino wool; 160m/50g);
Crochet hook 3.
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 15 + 2 + 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-9th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-9th rows.
Rose-knot: make 8 chain sts and circle them with 1 slip st.
1st row: 3 chain sts increase, 20 double crochets, 1 slip st in chain st increase.
Stitches control: 20 sts x 7,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 107 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern = 6 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 58,5 cm = 44 rows from the set-up row, finish your work. The central 2 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides form neck-hole, which will be decreased on 2 cm, after they will be sewn to the front plackets, outer 1 ½ pattern repeat + initial or final sts from both sides form shoulders.
Make 47 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern = 2 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. For front placket, increase 4 double crochets in the 4th-9th rows from the left side, as it’s stated on the scheme 2. This increase is stated on the pattern design as chamfer. In 32 cm = 24 rows from the set-up row, decrease final sts + ½ pattern repeat during 20 rows for chamfer, make decreases to 4 double crochets of the placket = initial sts + 1 ½ pattern repeat + 4 double crochets for shoulder. Finish your work at the height of back.
Make in symmetry to the left front.
Make 77 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern = 4 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 45,5 cm = 34 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams; sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams. Fasten all the edges with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “shrimp stitch”. Make 2 rose-knits and make chain of 20 cm long for strap after the last slip st of every rose-knot. Sew straps to front in the beginning of neck-hole chamfer.
