Knit Blue Dress
350 (450) of blue yarn (70% polyester, 30% polyamide; 125m/50g);
Knitting needles 7;
Circular knitting needles 7.
Size: S (L).
Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 1 + 2 selvage sts). Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated. Make WS rows as sts face, yarn overs as purls. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with st after pattern repeat and 1 selvage. Repeat 1st-12th rows.
Wrong-side pattern: in RS rows – purls, in WS rows – knit sts;
Stockinette stitch: in RS row – knit sts, in WS row – purls.
Stitches control: 13 sts x 18 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 63 (75) sts and make 1 cm = 2 rows of wrong-side pattern for placket. Continue work with relief pattern. In 86,5 cm = 156 rows (83,5 cm = 150 rows) from placket, increase 1 x 1 st from both sides for sleeves, them, 5 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 75 (87) sts. In 100 cm = 180 rows from placket, bind off the central 31 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 3 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards. In 109 cm = 196 rows from placket, bind off the rest 19 (25) sts of shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole, for this, in 96,5 cm = 174 rows from placket, bind off the central 17 sts, then, bind off 1 x 4 sts and 6 x 1 st in every 2nd row.
Make shoulder seams. For placket, cast on 82 sts along neck-hole and make 2 circle rows of knit sts. Then, bind off all sts, as they face. For sleeve plackets, cast on 50 (58) sts along straight edges of arm-holes and make 2 circle rows of stockinette stitch. Then, bind off all sts, as knit sts. Make side seams.
