Knit Blue-Green Top
400 (450) 500g of blue-green yarn (100% linen; 110m/50g);
Knitting needles 3;
Circular knitting needles 3.
Size: S (M) L.
1 x 1 rib;
Beads pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 6 + 2 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat and finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-4th rows.
Stitches control: 31,5 sts x 22 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 119 (131) 143 sts and make 8 cm with 1 x 1 rib for placket, increase 29 sts in the last WS row = 148 (160) 172 sts. In 31 cm = 68 rows from placket, continue work in the following way: make 69th-72nd rows x once = 131 (143) 155 sts, then, make the 73rd-76th rows x 8 (9) 10 times. Make decreases, except the 71st row, in WS rows. Decrease 17 sts in the 69th-72nd rows, then, decrease 6 sts in every 2nd row. In 47 cm = 104 rows (49 cm = 108 rows) 51 cm = 112 rows from placket, make 4 straight rows on the rest 35 sts, make 105th-108th rows (109th-112th rows) 113th-115th rows x once. In 49 cm = 108 rows (51 cm = 112 rows) 53 cm = 116 rows from placket, leave all the sts.
Make in the same way, as back.
For collar, cast on the previously left 35 sts of back, 10 new sts, 35 sts of front, 10 new sts and circle them in the ring and work on all the 90 sts with 1 x 1 rib in circle rows.
When the width of your collar is 8 cm, bind off all the sts due to the pattern. For arm-holes, cast on 104 sts from both sides of each arm-hole, including 10 new sts, 104 sts and make 3 circle rows as knit sts.
Bind off all the sts as knit sts. Make side seams.
