Relief Flower Pullover
450 (550)g of grey-blue Limone yarn (100% cotton; 125m/50g);
Crochet hook 3.
Size: S (L).
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 3 + 3 chain sts increase. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Flower pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 17 + 1 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme 2. Start with 1 chain st increase instead of the 1st st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-8th rows x once, then, repeat 5th-8th rows, finish with the 9th row.
Yoke: make 211 (228) chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with flower pattern due to the scheme 3. Start with sts from arrow A and work to arrow B (C). The last st before arrow B = the central st for size S, make the second half in symmetry, but without the central st. For size L, the center is at arrow C, make the second half in symmetry. Make 1st-9th rows x once.
Stitches control: main pattern: 22,5 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Flower pattern: 22,5 sts x 5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Yoke: 46 cm wide, 25 cm high.
Atfirst, make yoke. Then, work with main pattern on the central 103 (122) sts upon the lower edge of yoke, for size L, skip 1 chain st instead of 2 chain sts in the beginning of the 1st row. Finish your work in 28 cm from the set-up row.
Work from up to down; make 86 (103) chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with flower pattern. In 35 cm from the set-up row, make 7 cm of the main pattern, repeat the pattern x 17 times. After that, finish your work.
