Relief Brown Vest
250 (300)g of mélange brown Lido yarn (100% polyamide; 130m/50g);
Crochet hook 4;
Knitting needles 6.
Size: S (M).
Net pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme 1, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-2nd rows.
Rose-knot (make 12 or 13): make 6 chain sts and circle them in the ring with 1 slip st. Work due to the scheme in circle rows. Start every row with chain st increase instaed of the 1st st and finish with 1 slip st in the last chain st increase. Repeat 1st-4throws.
Ruffle: 1st rnd: join the yarn to the center of back edge, make 3 chain sts and 2 double crochets in 1 st, * 4 chain sts, skip 1 cm from edge, 3 double crochets in 1 base st*; repeat from * to *, 4 chain sts, 1 slip st in the last chain st increase;
2nd rnd: 3 chain sts increase, 4 chain sts, * 3 double crochets, 4 chain sts, 3 double crochets in the next arch, 4 chain sts*; repeat from * to *, 3 double crochets, 4 chain sts, 2 double crochets and 1 slip st in the last chain st increase;
3rd rnd: 3 chain sts increase, 2 double crochets in the 1st arch, * 4 chain sts, 3 double crochets in the next arch*; repeat from * to *, 4 chain sts and 1 slip st in the last chain st increase.
Stitches control: net pattern: 16 sts x 18 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 66 (74) sts and work with net pattern. In 26 (28) cm from the set-up row, bind off 1 st from both sides for arm-holes and decrease 7 x 1 st in every 4th row (8 x 1 st in every 2nd row and 3 x 1 st in every 4th row). For this, make the 2nd and 3rd sts from the right side together as broaching and make the 3rd and 2nd sts from end from the left side as knit2tog. In 46 (48) cm from the set-up row, bind off the rest 50 sts.
Cast on 10 (14) sts and work with net pattern, for better fitting, incraese2 sts in the 3rd row from the left side and 7 x 2 sts in every 2nd row = 26 (30) sts, include the increased sts in the pattern. Make decreases for arm-hole from the right side in the same way, as for back. At the same time, in 32 (34) cm from the set-up row, bind off 2 sts from the left side for neck-hole and 5 x 2 sts in every 2nd row. Bind off the rest 6 sts of shoulder at the height of back.
Make in symmetry to the left front.
Make shoulder and side seams. Place 3 rose-knots between the halves of front vertically, connect them between one another and join with zigzags to the edges of front (for this, make 1 single crochet in the rose-knot and edge by turn). Join the rest 9 (10) rose-knots to the lower edge and connect them all. Fasten the edge of neck-hole with ruffle.
