Relief Olive Tunic
350 (400) 450g of light-olive Oase yarn (60% viscose, 40% polyacryl; 95m/50g);
Crochet hook 4,5;
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 2 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-4th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-4th rows.
Arches pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 6 + 1 + 1 selvage st increase. Make in the same way, as the main pattern, but due to the scheme 2 (1st row of the main pattern is stated under 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.
Pattern for belt: * 1 row of triple crochets, 4 rows of single crochets*.
Stitches control: main pattern: 15,5 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Arches pattern: 13,5 sts x 8,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
For upper part, make 62 (68) 74 chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with the main pattern = 29 (32) 35 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 13,5 cm = 11 rows (15 cm = 12 rows) 16 cm = 13 rows from the set-up row, leave 1 pattern repeat from both sides for arm-holes and 4 x ½ pattern repeat in every row = 23 (26) 29 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides. In 23,5 cm = 19 rows (26,5 cm = 21 rows) 29 cm = 23 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 11 (12) 13 pattern repeat for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 5 x ½ pattern repeat in every row from inwards = 3 (4) 5 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides. In 32,5 cm = 26 rows (36,5 cm = 29 rows) 40 cm = 32 rows from the set-up row, finish your work. For lower part, work with arches pattern along the set-up row of the upper part, decrease 1 st in the 1st row = 10 (11) 12 pattern repeats + 1 initial st. In 17,5 cm = 15 rows from the upper part of chamfer, increase sts in the following way: make 2 instead of 3 unfinished double crochets together in 1 base st in every 2nd pattern repeat of the 16th row and make 2 single crochets or 2 treble crochets in these 2 sts. In 4 rows, make increases in the rest pattern repeats in the same way. In 37,5 cm = 32 rows (40 cm = 34 rows) 42,5 cm = 36 rows from upper part, finish your work.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, in 17,5 cm = 14 rows (21,5 cm = 17 rows) 25 cm = 20 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 7 (8) 9 pattern repeats and 9 x ½ pattern repeat in every row.
Make shoulder and side seams. For belt, make 9 chain sts + 1 chain st increase and make 9 rows of single crochets, start every row with 1 chain st increase instead of the 1st single crochet. Then, work with pattern for belt. For tassel, make a chain of 25 sts and make 2 single crochets in the right end of belt, make a chain of 25 sts and finish your work. String 1 bead to the beginning and end of tassel and fix with a knot.
