450g of middle weight 100% cotton yarn in ecru color;
100g of crochet 100% acryl lacing in ivory color;
Knitting needles 5;
Crochet hook 4.
Stitches control: 15 sts x 20 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 73 sts with cotton yarn and make 2 cm of garter stitch. Then, continue work, alternating material of yarn and patterns in the following way: * 4 rows of ruffles from lacing and make 8 cm with pattern due to the scheme with cotton yarn*; repeat from * to * x once, then, make 4 rows of ruffles and continue work due to the scheme with cotton yarn. At the same time, after the last stripe of ruffle, for better fitting, decrease 4 x 1 st in every 8th row from both sides = 65 sts. At 73 cm from the beginning of work, bind off 1 x 3 sts, 1 x 2 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides = 51 sts. At 93 cm height, bind off 11 sts for each shoulder and 29 sts for neck-hole.
Make in the same way, as back. At 56 cm height, continue work, alternating 1 row of ruffles from lacing and 5 cm of pattern due to the scheme of cotton yarn x 7 time for yoke, then, continue work with cotton yarn due to the scheme. At the same time, at 73 cm height from the beginning of work, make arm-holes in the same way, as back. At 5 cm height from the beginning of arm-holes, bind off the central 13 sts for neck-hole and bind off 2 x 2 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row. At 93 cm height, bind off 11 sts for each shoulder.
Make all the seams. Fasten neck-hole and arm-holes with 1 row of “shrimp stitch” with cotton yarn.
