Crochet hook 12;
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: 1st row (RS): half crochets;
2nd and 4th rows (WS): half crochets, insert crochet hook in the transversal st of the 1st row;
3rd row: half crochets, insert crochet hook through back loop of sts of the 2nd row. Make 1st-4th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-4th rows. Start every row with 2 chain sts increase instead of the 1st half crochets and finish with 1 double crochet in chain st increase of the previous row.
Stitches control: 6 sts x 37,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Start with left sleeve. Make 20 (22) 24 chain sts + 2 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. For sleeve chamfers, increase 4 x 1 st in every 4th row from both sides = 28 (30) 32 sts. In 48 cm = 18 rows from the set-up row, increase sts for side edges of front and back. For this, make 22 (24) 26 chain sts in the end of the 18th row, turn, make 28 (30) 32 sts for the 19th row and work with the main pattern. Then, leave st and join to the last st of the 18 row. Make chain of 22 (24) 26 chain sts and cut the yarn. After that, insert crochet hook in the previously left st and fasten this chain with main pattern with working yarn = 72 (78) 84 sts. In 13,5 cm = 5 rows (16 cm = 6 rows) 18,5 cm = 7 rows from side, divide your work in the middle and at first, make back on the first 36 (39) 42 sts. In 24 cm = 9 rows from the division, finish back neck-hole: leave the sts and make left front on the last 36 (39) 42 sts. In 24 cm = 9 rows from division, finish your work. Then, make 36 (39) 42 chain sts + 2 chain sst increase and work with the main pattern for right front. In 24 cm = 9 rows from the set-up row, work on all the sts with the main pattern. In 13,5 cm = 5 rows (16 cm = 6 rows) 18,5 cm = 7 rows from the end of neck-hole, leave 22 (24) 26 sts for sleeves from both sides, then, work in symmetry. Finish your work at sleeve length of 48 cm = 18 rows.
Fasten neck-hole and lower edges with 1 row of slip sts from RS. Sew buttons.
