700g of yarn (50% merino wool, 50% yak wool; 130m/50g) in red-brick color;
Crochet hook 4,5;
Short circular knitting needles 4.
Main pattern: the quantity of set-up row is multiple 10 + 9. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows.
Structured pattern: the quantity of sts is odd. Work in the same way, as the main pattern, but due to the scheme 2. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Note: start pattern with 1 WS row.
Stitches control: main pattern: 18,5 sts x 8,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Structured pattern: 15,5 sts x 11,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 89 (99) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. In 42 cm = 36 rows (40 cm = 34 rows) from the set-up row, skip 3 cm from both sides for arm-holes = 6sts. In 44,5 cm = 38 rows from the set-up row, continue work with structured pattern, make 65 (75) sts in the 1st row. In 18 cm = 21 rows from the beginning of structured pattern, skip the central 25 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. At the same time, skip 8 (9) sts from both sides for shoulder chamfer and 1 x 6 (8) sts in the next 2nd row. In 21,5 cm = 25 rows from the beginning structured pattern, finish your work on the rest 6 (8) sts of shoulder.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, skip the central 9 sts in 15 cm = 17 rows from the beginning of structured pattern and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 4 sts and 2 x 2 sts in every row from inwards.
Make 49 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase for each sleeve and work with the main pattern. In 14 cm = 12 rows from the set-up row, increase 1 cm from both sides for sleeve chamfers and after that, bind off 5 x 1 cm in every 4th row (7 x 1 cm in every 3rd row) due to the pattern. In 42,5 cm = 36 rows from the set-up row, continue work with structured pattern, make 59 (65) single crochets in the 1st row. After that, increase 2 x 1 st in every 5th row from both sides due to the pattern = 63 (69) sts. In 12 cm = 14 rows from patterns change, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams. For collar, cast on 76 sts along neck-hole with circular knitting needles and work with rib. In 6 cm from the beginning of collar, bind off sts as they face. Make tassels of 4 threads of yarn 25 cm long.
