Grey Pullover with V-Shape Neck-Hole
650 (750)g of light-grey 100% cotton yarn (80m/50g);
Knitting needles 5;
Circular knitting needles 4,5.
Size: S (M).
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 10 + 9 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-20th rows.
Stitches control: 16 sts x 41 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 81 (91) sts and make 1 cm = 3 rows of garter stitch, start with 1 WS row. Continue work with main pattern. In 63,5 cm = 260 rows from placket, bind off all sts, the central 37 sts form neck-hole, outer 22 (27) sts – shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but start pattern with 11th-20th rows, then, repeat 1st-20th rows. For V-shape neck-hole, bind off the central st in 39 cm = 160 rows from placket and finish both sides separately. For chamfer, bind off 18 x 1 st in every 4th and 6th row by turn from inwards. Bind off the rest 22 (27) sts of shoulder at the height of back.
Cast on 41 (51) sts for each sleeve and make placket in the same way, as for back. Continue work with main pattern. In 12 cm = 50 rows from placket, increase 1 x 1 st from both sides for sleeve chamfers, then, bind off 4 x 1 st in every 14th row and 2 x 1 st in every 12th row and work with garter stitch = 55 (65) sts. In 34 cm = 140 rows from placket, bind off all sts.
Make shoulder seams. For placket, cast on 124 sts along neck-hole with circular knitting needles and work with garter stitch. At 1,5 cm width of placket, bind off all sts, as knit sts. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams.
