Nice Pullover with Relief Detail
350 (450)g of grey-blue Natura yarn (46% merino wool, 28% viscose, 12% bamboo, 7% alpaca, 7% mohair; 100m/50g);
Knitting needles 4,5;
Crochet hook 4,5.
Size: S (M).
Stockinette stitch: in RS row – knit sts, in WS row – purls;
Lace pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 11 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme. Start every row with 1 or 3 chain sts increase instead if the 1st single or double crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-5th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-5th rows.
Stitches control: stockinette stitch: 14 sts x 21 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Lace pattern: 13 sts x 9,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 64 (77) sts and work with stockinette stitch. In 22 (24) cm from the set-up row, bind off the sts loosely. Fasten the upper edge with lace pattern, skip 1st of the set-up row in every pattern repeat. Finish your work at 30 (32) cm height of lace pattern.
Make in the same way as back, but in 33 (35) cm from the set-up row, bind off 5 sts from both sides and 1 x 2 sts and 1 x 1 st in every 2nd row. At the same time with the 1st decrease, divide your work in half for V-shape neck-hole (bind off the central st) and make both sides separately. For neck-hole chamfer, decrease 14 x 1 st in every 2nd row. In 52 (56) cm from the set-up row, bind off the rest 10 (16) sts from each side.
Left Lace Part of Front
Make 83 (96) chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with lace pattern. In 6 cm = 4 rows from the set-up row, leave 41 (45,5) cm from left side for strap. Then, leave 7 x 1 cm in every 2nd row from left side for neck-hole chamfer. Finish your work in 30 (32) cm from the set-up row.
Right Lace Part of Front
Make in symmetry to the left part.
Make 35 chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with lace pattern. At the same time from the set-up row, increase 13 (17) x 0,5 cm in every 2nd row from both sides for sleeve chamfers, include the increased sts in the pattern. Finish your work in 54 cm from the set-up row.
Make shoulder seams of lace part, catching 7 (11,5) cm of front shoulders. Sew up the sleeves, make side seams, put lace parts of front upon knit details, catching both parts. Fasten the lace edges of front and back neck-hole with 1 row of single crochets. Fasten the bottom of your work with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of shells.
