500 (550) 600g of coral yarn (55% cotton, 25% polyamide, 20% silk; 125m/50g);
Crochet hook 3;
1,5 m of dark-blue satin lace 5 cm wide.
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: the quantity of sts in the set-up row is multiple 18 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 4th-7th rows.
Stitches control: 33,5 sts x 9,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 145 (163) 181 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. In 72,5 cm = 69 rows from the set-up row, skip the central 18 cm for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. Finish your work on the rest sts of shoulders in 74,5 cm = 71 rows from the set-up row.
Make in the same way, as back, but make neck-hole in 64 cm = 61 rows from the set-up row.
Make 91 (109) 109 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. In 10,5 cm = 10 rows from the set-up row, increase 1 pattern repeat from both sides during the next 40 cm = 38 rows. It’s recommended to make pattern design in natural size. In 52,5 cm = 50 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams. Fasten the edge of neck-hole with 1 circle row of single crochets. Insert satin lace in front part through the central 4 (5) 4 big holes in the 24th row. Make a bow.
