Yellow Pullover with Stripe of Rhombs
600 (650) 700g of golden yellow Cool Wool yarn (100% sheep wool; 160m/50g);
Crochet hook 3,5.
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: double crochets, start every row with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and finish with 1 double crochet in the 3rd chain st increase of the previous row.
Rhombs pattern (20 sts wide): work due to the scheme. Make 1st-14th rows x once, 2nd-6th rows and 9th-14th rows x once, 2nd-5th rows and 10th-14th rows x once, 2nd-6th rows and 9th-14th rows x once, 2nd-14th rows x once.
Note: RS rows will become WS rows and vice versa. In RS rows make front post double crochets behind the upper part of previous double crochets or relief double crochet, in WS rows, make back post double crochets behind upper part of previous double crochet or relief double crochet.
Stitches control: main pattern: 16,5 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 86 (94) 102 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. For better fitting, decrease 6 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides. For this, make the 2nd and 3rd sts from right side together and 3rd and 2nd sts together from left side = 74 (82) 90 sts. In 28 (29) 30 cm from the set-up row, increase 6 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 86 (94) 102 sts. In 44 (46) 48 cm from the set-up row, bind off 4 sts from both sides for arm-holes and 1 x 2 sts, 3 x 1 st in every row = 68 (76) 84 sts. At 20 (21) 22 m height of arm-holes, bind off 15 (18) 21 sts from both sides for shoulders, crochet for 5 cm on the central 38 (40) 42 cm for collar and finish your work.
Make in the same way, as back, but make rhombs pattern on the central 20 sts. After finishing rhombs pattern, continue work with the main pattern.
Make 52 (56) 60 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. In 40 (40) 38 cm from the set-up row, decrease 4 sts from both sides for sleeve caps, bind off 1 x 1 st in the next row, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row, 2 x 1 st in every row, 3 x 3 sts and 1 x 4 sts in every row. Finish your work at 15,5 cm height of sleeve cap.
Make shoulder and collar seams. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams.
