Relief Crochet Pullover
150 (200) 250g of beige Cadiz Unito yarn (51% cotton, 33% polyacryl, 16% viscose; 90m/50g);
100 (150) 150g of the same yarn, but in orange color;
50 (50) 100g of powdery Leona yarn (50% cotton, 50% polyacryl; 95m/50g);
Crochet hook 5.
Size: S (M) L/XL.
Main pattern: work with straight and reversed rows of treble crochets, start every row with 4 chain sts increase instead of the 1st treble crochet and finish with 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain st increase of the previous row.
Fans pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 8 + 1 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme. Start every row with 1 extra chain st increase or 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-6th rows x once, then, 3rd-5th rows x once = 9 rows.
Stitches control: main pattern: 12 sts x 4,75 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Fans pattern: 12 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 13 cm.
Note: make sleeves on the edges of arm-holes.
Make 55 (63) 71 chain sts + 1 chain st increase with beige yarn and make 1 row of single crochets. Don’t take this row into account. Then, work with the main pattern, start with 1 WS row. In 33,5 cm = 16 rows from the set-up row, decrease 6 treble crochets from both sides for arm-holes (= make slip st above them in the beginning of row and leave these treble crochets open in the end of row) and decrease 1 x 1 treble crochet in the next 2nd row. For this, make the first and last 2 double crochets together = 41 (49) 57 sts. In 40 cm = 19 rows (44 cm = 21 rows) 48,5 cm = 23 rows from the set-up row, start work with fans pattern, make 1st-5th rows with powder yarn, 6th-9th rows – with orange yarn = 4 (5) 6 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. Finish back in 13 cm = 9 rows from the end of the main pattern.
Make in the same way, as back.
Make shoulder seams on 10 (12) 14,5 cm from both sides. Fasten vertical edges of arm-holes with fans pattern with orange yarn, make 49 (57) 65 single crochets in the 1sts row = 5 (6) 7 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. Finish your work at 13 cm = 9 rows length of sleeve.
Make side seams. Sew the lower 5 cm of sleeves to the horizontal edges of arm-holes. Make sleeve seams.
