Silver Grey Crochet Tunic
400 (450)g of silver grey Secondo yarn (55% cotton, 25% polyamide, 20% silk; 125m/50g);
Crochet hook 3,5;
2 pearled buttons.
Size: S (M).
Lace pattern: due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-5th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-5th rows.
Lace pattern: 21 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Single crochets: 23 sts x 28 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 126 (133) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with lace pattern. In 53 cm from the set-up row, make 12 cm of single crochets, make 100 (110) single crochets in the 1st row. Start every row with 1 chain st increase instead of the 1st single crochet.
Make in the same way, as back, but with cut and placket. For this, divide your work in the following way: for upper part, make single crochets on the last 53 (58) sts, make 2 button-holes, step back 2 sts from the right side. For lower part, make 6 sts in the middle and make 12 cm of single crochets on all 53 (58) sts.
Make side seams, fasten upper and lower edges with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “shrimp stitch”. For each strap, make 81 chain sts and fasten it with 2 rows of single crochets and 1 row of “shrimp stitch” from both sides. Sew straps and buttons.
