Back and Front
Make as one-piece detail, starting from back. Make 83 chain sts with woolen yarn and work due to the scheme 1. At 13 cm height, leave 6 sts from both sides for arm-holes = 71 sts and crochet straight. In 26 cm from the beginning of arm-hole, leave the central 24 sts unfinished for neck-hole. For this, divide 71 sts in half 12 sts from right and left sides of center and continue making both halves of front separately, decrease 1 st in every row from inwards for neck-hole chamfer in order to have only 6 sts left. At the same time, in 14 cm from the beginning of neck-hole, increase 1 st in every row. At 6 cm height, you should get 12 sts for each half of front. Cut the yarn.
Make side seams with kitchener’s stitch. Make sleeves from arm-holes. For arm-hole forming, fasten it with 1 row of single crochets. Make sleeves due to the scheme 1 around, at the same time, decrease 2 x 1 st in every row in the beginning of row, another one in the end of row. At 41 cm height of the main pattern, cut the yarn. Make fringe and cuffs with Meringo yarn. At first, make 1 row of single crochets, then, make 5 rows due to the scheme 2.
