Light-Blue Crochet Pullover
300 (400)g of light-blue 100% cotton yarn (165m/50g);
Crochet hook 4.
Size: S (L).
Main pattern A: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 5. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows.
Main pattern B: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 1. Make in the same way, as main pattern A, but due to the scheme 2. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows.
Edge with picot: start every rnd with 1 chain st increase instead of the 1st single crochet and finish with 1 slip 1st in chain st increase.
1st rnd: single crochets;
2nd rnd: * 1 single crochet, skip 1 single crochet of the previous row with the help of 1 picot*; repeat from * to *.
Pattern for basque: the quantity of sts is multiple 8. Work with rnds due to the scheme 3.
Start every rnd with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat or before the beginning of new rnd by means of making 1 slip st in the top chain st increase. Make 1st-8th rnds x once, then, repeat 2nd-8th rnds.
Stitches control: main patterns A + B: 17 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Basque pattern: 15,5 sts x 8,5 rnds = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 77 (97) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and make 1,5 cm = 1 row of double crochets. Then, continue work with the main pattern A (B) = 6 (7) pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 24 cm = 19 rows (25 cm = 20 rows) from the set-up row, leave 3,5 cm = ½ pattern repeat open from both sides for arm-holes = 5 (6) pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 33 cm = 26 rows (36,5 cm = 29 rows) from the set-up row, leave the central 18 (21) cm and finish each side separately = 1 pattern repeat + initial and final sts for each side. In 43 cm = 34 rows (46,5 cm = 37 rows) from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make in the same way, as back.
At first, make shoulder seams. Fasten the edges of arm-holes with the main pattern A (B), make 5 pattern repeats + initial and final sts in the 1st row. In 4 cm = 3 rows, decrease ½ pattern repeat form both sides for sleeves chamfers for the next 10 cm = 8 rows = 4 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. At 22,5 cm = 18 rows height of sleeve, finish your work.
Make side seams. Fasten neck-hole with 2 rnds of picots. Make basque along the initial edge of front and back, making pattern for basque. Increase 22 sts in the 1st rnd = 176 (216) sts.
Note: at first, basque is the same size, as upper part of pullover.
At 17,5 cm = 15 rnds height of basque, finish your work, make 1 rnd of half double crochets.
Make lower sleeve seams.
